Day 44 - 2 day have past and the bottom of the desk was finally try, time to flip'er over and get to work on the inside! I never noticed how heavy this desk was... redface.gif The inside had already been sanded from the previous days so it was just priming and painting. This was pretty straight forward put i had the trouble of applying to much paint in some area's causing drips and applying coats to soon and getting the spider effect. After the desk was all done and inside the house I found that their were 2 areas that had the spider web effect and I didn't notice them frown.gif So I am going to have to live with it for now.

Day -45 (continue) - While waiting for the desk to cure, I decided to do something with the not so nice looking led controllers. I cut out the bottom of them so you could see the bottom of the pcb, I then found some lexan kicking around and cut and shaped it into inserts for the controller so you could see through them! I like looking at bare PCB's and thought this would add a cool touch to the desk. On the back of the pcb's I soldered on an led strip to the rear terminal's so you get that cool glow coming up from underneath it when you turn it on.thumb.gif












Gonna paint them black then they are all good to go in the desk! Also I ended up repainting the back plate for where the mother board i/o are.

Wait a second, do you think that painting the mainboard heatsink could make it hotter?

Some paints might, but there are certain paints that dissipate heat better than others used for car engines and whatnot.

The heatsink's do get a little hotter, but I did some test's so see how well they would dissipate the heat and see how hot that module would get. The VRM heatsink was the hottest area that I might consider watercooling down the road but for right now I don't think it will be an issue till I do some extreme overclocking thumb.gif

Finish your project, and share "YOUR" project. Even if you give Peter credit for being your inspiration, what were you inspired to do? You have copied his desk, that doesn't show the creativity that you express you wanted to share with us.

Also the name needs to change, Peter Brands built the "Razer Desk" it is clear you know this, and it is clear that he was your inspiration, you say so yourself.

So make some changes and make the desk your own. Peter's desk is awesome, and very inspiring, but it has been done, and I am sure being that you have the skill to get this far, you can create something original.
