Been busy lately with cleaning up and refreshing the original 'L3p D3sk'. (Yes it's still alive!)

Since Cross is completely tested .. well .. I have an empty prototype here.

1%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

So I thought .. why not create my own ultimate gaming and overclocking dream.
This time with a fully acrylic pipe loop, Bitspower fittings and .. off course in UV green.
Also moved the desk to my 'modcave'.

3%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Will use a lot of components from previous projects and ... ALL fittings I have here + some extra.
Going to do what I love to do .. just fool around with UV and play with the loop

There will be some surprises in this build

Thank you for following this project
smile.gif


I already got the question a few times "Already have an update?" and "When will it be finished?"
No idea, I'm not competing in casemod competitions. (Wouldn't be fair with all the sponsoring imo) and
I do this as a hobby next to 2 jobs and a family.
So I'll be looking for a spot to do something constantly as the other 3 'things' are more important.
And also the question "Why so many sponsors?"
No idea, they just want to help on this project. Would you say no?
smile.gif

It's certainly no full sponsored build by the way, had to save up for it bigtime.
Anyway .. I'm happy, they're happy .. hopefully you too
smile.gif

Preparing this build started very slowly even before the Parvum build.
So testing and choosing certain products.

Different kinds of UV green acrylic.

5%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

And off course some tests with Mayhems coolant/dyes.

6%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

The fans, Gelid Wing 12 UV Green

7%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

8%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

and some UV lights added.

9%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

10%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

One of the best packages I ever got.

11%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

But more about that an other time
smile.gif


12%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

It's about the different Radguards I'm going to use now.

13%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Will be using the acrylic version behind the aluminum to create an illuminated edge.

14%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Works great with the UV leds on it
smile.gif


15%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Meanwhile playing around with a DSLR from a colleague.
Finally after 3 years got myself a Canon 600D!

Laser%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Best looking radiators I had in my hands till now.
Thanks Martin!

16%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

17%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

18%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

19%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

The Cooler Master V1000's, Lamptron CW611's and the ssd's from previous projects.

20%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Got one of these in my own pc now too. JonnyGuru approved
smile.gif


21%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

22%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

2 controllers for 2 separate pc's.

23%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

24%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

25%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

So .. lets play with the rads, fans and UV leds.

26%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

The effect I want to have. Still need to get a lot more UV/blue ledstrips.

27%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Stickers gone.

28%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

24 x M4 hex bolts later. (For just one rad)

29%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

30%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

I have hidden one small UV ledstrip inside the Radiator.

31%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Still in doubt if I'm also going to use a ledstrip all around the desk aiming downwards.
Will do good to the rest of the UV active material.

32%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

The 'double' Radguards.

33%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

34%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

The ones in the back will need to be modified because there are no 480 acrylic radguards.

35%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Lovely to work like this

oh man,subbed fosho!
how did you hook the MX239/279 up for eyefinity tho? they dont have a vesa, so did you just drill holes in the backplate or make an attachment to make it seem legit?

62%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

I just love clear acrylic.

63%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

First test with the acrylic.

64%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Thinking of adding a layer of black vinyl or removing the rubbertape on the desk and re-attach it on the acrylic.

65%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

And the second package from Highflow.nl.
Thanks Red Harbinger & Freddy!

66%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Made them shine a little more. (They were fully frosted)

67%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Another night of mounting.

68%20%5b550xl3p%5d.JPG

Love it!
