[Scratch Build] "The Minimalistic Desk of Destiny" X99 Desk Build - Page 3

post #21 of 54

Does anyone have a lot of experience with Mayhem dye? I''ve never used it and from what I've read, fairly easy to work with. I'm thinking about using the pastel white, or the cool looking silver/white. If i get the concentrate, I'd just add it right into my loop, correct?

Also,

Started working on OCing the CPU and am stable at 4.2ghz right now. My VCore is somewhere around 1.25 if I remember correctly! Gonna try to push it until it's not stable then back off some.

the Pastel's normally need a certain mix ratio, also you want to ensure you have a stable pH in your loop (6.8-7) for them to work properly w/out fading or discoloring. I'd check out the Mayhems' thread as well thumb.gif Mick is really informative on what needs have to be met to ensure good use.

Thanks Man! I'll send him a message tonight and order some this week. Just got to decide between pastel or supernova. white.

choices, choices, choices!

Also, I believe im going to order all my psu wires from ensourced.com. Looks like high quality stuff for not much more than I would spend to do it myself (including time).

This is the pattern im thinking about.

Looking good - can't wait to see the end results!

And that is a slick cable color pattern, btw.

Small Update

Got some more stuff ordered for this!

Beastly part #1:

QNIX QX2710 Matte Monitor




I plan on building a enclosure for the back of the desk to VESA mount the monitor to. I also plan on taking my logitech mids and highs and mounting them in the enclosure. I may a quick sketchup to give a general idea of how it'll be. The depth of the enclosure will be just enough to fit the tv and a little breathing room. This will give me more desk space, as well as study the monitor.

Sketchup is below:



Behind the tv in the enclosure I also plan on doing some adalight or ambilight with a rasberrypi. Example is below:

Lightberry Youtube Clip!

Beastly Part #2:

I still need to add lighting to the inside of the PC compartment. I tried one of the RGB strips but when doing white, the RGB at full brightness makes a rainbow effect glare on all my components. After being disappointed with this, I started doing research. I came across adafruit Neopixels. these are individually addressable LEDs by using a micro controller to program what they do. I plan on using an arduino to control them and may possibly even build a 3 slider control station to control the colors of them. If i don't do that, I will create a desk utility to quickly control them. I will also use it to monitor temperature and if the CPU or GPU temp rise above a certain setting, it'll change all the LEDs to a pulsing red.

Adafruit Neopixel Demo

This will be used when watching movies, but mostly for when playing FPS. I will also have this connected to the temp sensor.

Let me know what you guys think! Open to all suggestions smile.gif

You must have the 3528 led strips that are RGB. The 5050 led strips are the ones you want. The 5050s will actually give you distinct color variations instead of using seperate LEDs to create a color or white. I snag em on eBay all the time for pretty cheap and you can also find the 5050s that are addressable.
