Updated DAY 7...(Page 1 ..scroll down) Weather was good and managed to paint the one side of desk,,,going tomorrow morning to finish the other side,,because the one side needs to dry before i can start the other side ..Bummer biggrin.gif

Anyways,, i will be bringing the desk home on Sunday... that's when the fun begins...

PS.... On Tuesday am taking the Plexi Glass for Sandblast....hope the design works cos its a bit complex...

So you went with Gloss Black? Looks good, very sleek looking. Looking at that nice gloss I had an idea.

What if on the counter top area (where keyboard and mouse sit), using a stencil, or if you know anyone that airbrushes, you had a ghost design, using a pearl clear coat with a light blue hue (to match the OCN blue but lighter) . I am thinking like ghost flames are painted on vehicles.

Maybe the overclock.net logo, or any design of your choice of course thumb.gif. Something to differentiate it from every other solid color desk you see smile.gif

Hey Slappy Mcgee,

Actually its black mat, the only reason it looks gloss its because it freshly painted and has not dried yet... PS i have a friend that paintbrushes but i don't trust him frown.gif the idea is great but it needs to be done well to look good, and i dont trust my friend to do a good job frown.gif but you are giving me ideas hmmmm....thumb.gif

:thumb:Glad you like the idea. Have to see it when it is mat but.I bet you cold pull off a design painted in gloss clear coat to get the same effect. If you know anyone that paints cars they would be able to pull off an airbrushing design for ya. Tattoo artist as well smile.gif

Looks good
As others have said though, I am a bit worried about cooling.

Though you said you had 23mm(I'm assuming 230mm) fans, so it should be better.

LOL yea i meant 230mm, i don't think i will have an issue with cooling because the fans are 3x 160 CMF plus 2x 120mm that push 100+ CFM,,also i should be watercooling next month.
PS Its the coldest winter in my country for the past 150 years i could overclock my PC to 5Ghz with no fans hahaha Just Kidding thumb.gif
