    Just WOW!
    I'm pretty sure I should get one of these since life is getting busy now and don't have much time to make own projects / modding hehe.

    Maybe for next furniture update!

    I would add a lower part to fix the keyboard and make it as "retractable" since that is what I'm used to have...

    +rep and infinite stars!

    We had planned on going all aluminum, however bringing down the cost was key. If we were to produce an all aluminum version the cost of the desk would be over $3000 (see the cost of the Lian Li desk as an example). All components will be powder coated for a strong, attractive finish.

    Renders!

    Well I got some questions about the possible colors and the monitor stand.
    Maybe this post will make some things clear.
    There's also a render coming up with all the in and outside measurements in mm and inch to answer some of your questions.


    These were made by perfect cooperation between Shawn and Scott :)
    First of all an exploded view of the prototype I have here.

    [​IMG]


    And the HDD bracket I personally won't be using for this build but will be in the standard desk.

    [​IMG]


    Our plans are to have the desk in a few standard colors.
    However there is an option to order the desk completely color-customized.
    So this render is just to show what parts could be in your own custom color.

    [​IMG]

    The monitor stand.
    This is still just a concept, but we're working on it :)

    [​IMG]


    Reservoirs.
    Also a concept we're busy with.
    Don't ask for details :D

    [​IMG]



    And some renders of a white desk with concept reservoirs.

    Lovely stuff. I like the res prototype too. You probably shouldn't have posted the multicolor renders. EEL would order one in 'clown' color.

    Wow! :thumb: Another great work from the awesome department right here XD I love the reservoirs and colour customization, also the triple monitor stand is going to be amazing if it goes up to 27" per monitor :D
    Definitely subbed again! :D

    Been a while since we're all very busy. :)

    First of all I want to thank Youri Vandevelde!
    From the very start he has been a Red Harbinger 'fan' and he made a FAQ by gathering all questions and answers from all forums and facebook.
    Red Harbinger FAQ
    Also added this link to the topic start and will be updated constantly.
    If you have any other questions ... shoot :)


    We had a lot of changes in the desk.
    Example of only 10 of the 40 changes of the last 5 weeks.

    - Less screws on the vanity plate/leg plating.
    - Have a stand-off PEM under the top and middle portion of the right side tray to prevent sagging.
    - PEM's on inside of legs to attach the bottom leg rest, top to chassis, and rear to backplate.
    - Added faster bottom access panel removal/install option.
    - Tube holes near cpu just as high as the holes in the middle/bridge.
    - Center bridge monitor cabling section has a screw in the way.
    - 5.25" slots too narrow cause of powdercoat.
    - HDD tray hole covers
    - Fan connector space on left and right.
    - Grommet holes beneath 5.25" trays.

    Lots of things you find out once you have a prototype to test.


    For this specific build I also have a small problem :)
    The prototype intended for me to test appeared to be a dual pc desk.
    Wouldn't have been a problem except there were no single pc desk 'firewall' and 'HDD-tray'.
    Manufacturing a single set in the US with the same powdercoat and sending it to Holland would be too expensive.
    So decided to build a dual pc desk .. Need to be tested anyway.
    Still need to arrange the hardware but that will hopefully work out.

    Off course I also needed a place to build and test this desk....


    When I just took the picture from this corner my wife ... never mind .... no option :)

    [​IMG]


    Attic? Nah, need to tidy it up then. Now I know exactly where everything is :D
    (It is a bit cleaned up as we speak though)

    [​IMG]


    Last option ... the spare room.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Check!

    [​IMG]


    After moving the desk upstairs it did get a bit crowded.

    [​IMG]


    Went shopping for some cabinets.

    [​IMG]


    Assembled the legs to make it more firm.
    (This design has already been changed, improved and lowered)

    [​IMG]


    Firm enough for now.

    [​IMG]


    Approved!

    [​IMG]


    First thing to test ... mainboard layout :)

    [​IMG]


    And off course sitting behind it after a long day.

    [​IMG]


    This weekend more about the to be used hardware and watercooling.
