Quick apology, some of the pictures aren't quite right, as you can imagine. lighting was a bit of an issue smile.gif

Right, so I basically gutted my room, took the bed out to give plenty of space to work, you can also see where I had to move my radiator to fit the desk into the room smile.gif

First time I unwrapped all the metalwork...

I'm not sure of the rules on here for posting outside companies (if they aren't competitors etc) but if anyone would like the information on the Metal finishing company I went to, PM me, I couldn't be happier with them.

Firstly, I put on the felt strips which the glass will sit on

My flatmate laser cut me a matte black disk to cover the hole in the DVD drive, its simple and looks rather smart (about a million times better than the horrible sticker that was on it)

Now a "fun" part, group your PCI-e cables in overlapping groups of four and bind them together using a matching red thread.

Creating a core group which you can then attach the outer cables around.

(top part done)

This took a very...very long time, but was completely worth it. this was the most time consuming part of the build, but I used this approach on all the cables and they all now hold their shape without cable ties.

I then put the screen stand on, This is where the problem happened... I obviously needed to sand out the clamp so it would fit the newly powder coated pole. the clamp went on fine with some persuasion. However, the monitor stand armature which holds the screens did not.

Instead of making their screen stands out of aluminium, they are in fact made of cheese, sheared the clamp straight off the bar. I've got a new one on the way which has a more practical design which I can modify to fit the screen pole.

The moment of truth...

So currently the desk has all the screens just stood on the glass until I get the screen stand sorted, so I'll have some yummy pictures for you all in a week or so.

Current Clock/Cooling

Cpu(s) clocked @ 3.8Ghz
40 degrees Idle, 50-55 under load.

Gfx cards 45 Degrees Idle 55-60 under load

All with the fans at 70% (inaudible)

So the loudest things in the desk are the pumps so two D5's set to 3... its blissfully quiet.

Thank you to everyone who maintained an interest over the two years it took to make the thing, sorry for the wait, but I hope this makes up for it.

Sam.
