    Hello Cheapskate :)
    Thanks for you compliment!
    I see that nothing escapes you ... :hehe:
    for the story
    sewing was not provided for at the origin ....
    That's when I saw my imitation leather will take off at the edges I had idea of strengthening all
    but I hold your idea that is very relevant
    thanks again :)

    Hi B negative
    thanks a lot :)
    I hope your stay in Taipei was profitable :thumb:

    Hello :)

    a little update today
    this mod work with two graphic card, so we need a SLI bridge

    [​IMG]

    the red color not fit... so we disassembled the bridge

    [​IMG]

    we want to use the chrome paint...

    [​IMG]

    but the result is not up to our expectations :waah:

    [​IMG]

    ok .... waiting to find another idea, we create a sticker thanks to the plotter

    [​IMG]

    logo's Harley :)

    [​IMG]

    we bring together the parts of the kit
    we finally chose to paint the metal parts in black
    it enhances the Harley logo

    [​IMG]

    the backlight of the SLI bridge do not support our graphics card...
    we had to solder a cable to power the LED circuit

    [​IMG]

    day...night.... :rolleyes:

    [​IMG]

    thanks :thumb:

    Hello :)
    we customized most hardware parts
    it's time to start putting everything in place
    here the plateau receives this little world
    wood that we have covered in leather faux cowhide leather imitation


    [​IMG]

    we have realized several holes including the establishment of the spacers

    [​IMG]

    establishment of the motherboard

    [​IMG]

    LEDs provided with the waterblock are blue....

    [​IMG]

    blue unbecoming a theme Harley
    we trade against the white

    [​IMG]

    LED, cable, resistance, soldering station...

    [​IMG]

    and some sleeving :)

    [​IMG]

    implementation of waterblock and carenage motherboard

    [​IMG]

    chipset heatsink is also in place

    [​IMG]

    we set up the formwork of arrears connectors

    [​IMG]

    the fairing of the motherboard overwhelmed enough to conceal the sata cable connection

    [​IMG]

    we position the heatsink mosfets

    [​IMG]

    all in black
    but we place a polished aluminum plate on top

    [​IMG]

    holes for the passage of cables powering the motherboard

    [​IMG]

    we cut small plates to cover these holes

    [​IMG]

    realization of the passage of each wire

    [​IMG]

    polishing :)

    [​IMG]

    fixing at the ATX cable passage

    [​IMG]

    fixing at the CPU cable passage

    [​IMG]

    why this round hole....

    [​IMG]

    for the passage of cables from the hard drive
    and 4 small extra holes to wedge spacers integrating rubber mounts

    [​IMG]

    good, most of the hardware parts are in place on the tray
    following next time ;)

    Hello!
    the hardware is quite finished :)
    the following is the decorationfor the desk according to the Harley's theme

    [​IMG]

    it is not a shield....

    [​IMG]

    it is a concho!

    [​IMG]

    in general, it takes place at the saddle of the bike or on the saddlebags

    [​IMG]

    we put them between watercooling tanks

    [​IMG]

    as you can see, the right side of the desk is occupied by tanks :)
    they are three tanks XPSC Photon 270 ml

    [​IMG]

    we continue with some buttons....

    [​IMG]

    this is for the Power switch

    [​IMG]

    we let's connect a second for the Reset switch

    [​IMG]

    another buttons....

    [​IMG]

    not the same!

    [​IMG]

    there is to connect some Leds

    [​IMG]

    five buttons to command the light present on the hardware :baby:

    [​IMG]

    making a lot of cables to store ... :duh:

    [​IMG]

    we make another plate to put on the front of the desk, near the tank's tray

    [​IMG]

    we make some holes on it :D

    [​IMG]

    some nails...

    [​IMG]

    oups!!! Xray thinks he is a fakir :D

    [​IMG]

    go working!!!

    [​IMG]

    see you soon :)

    Hello

    we have to built some support on the backstage of the desk
    First with the power supply
    we begin with this plate bended at 90°

    [​IMG]

    we create the opening for the rear part

    [​IMG]

    we test the attachment

    [​IMG]

    locating the fan center

    [​IMG]

    to create the opening beneath the power supply, corresponding thus to the opening in the desk

    [​IMG]

    we drill three holes on each side of the power supply for fixing the support in the desk

    [​IMG]

    even if the media is not seen, we apply a black paint for a better finish ;)

    [​IMG]

    soon :)

    hello :)
    we go now to the radiator support

    [​IMG]

    perfect round but realized with a hole saw :)

    [​IMG]

    some fans....

    [​IMG]

    we'll change the label

    [​IMG]

    road 66 fans!

    [​IMG]

    another plate...

    [​IMG]

    some spacers

    [​IMG]

    we fix the plate

    [​IMG]

    and we fix the pump on this plate :)

    [​IMG]

    soon :)

    the next is to connect the different parts of the hardware :)
    we require wire

    [​IMG]

    the clamp crimp

    [​IMG]

    and some sleeving

    [​IMG]

    the ATX cable is ready

    [​IMG]

    we do the same with the cpu cable.
    but with the PCIe cable, we change our approach .....

    [​IMG]

    after having removed plug
    we solder the wires directly on the pcb

    [​IMG]

    and the cables will be hidden under the fairing against the waterblock

    [​IMG]

    we have to connect the differents parts of the watercooling :)

    [​IMG]

    some of them are chromed :)

    [​IMG]

    :):):)
