    Hi guys, with this new discussion I want to start a big update of my Desk that I had built in the far 2015. :dremel:

    Here is the discussion.
    https://forums.bit-tech.net/index.php?threads/dragon-desk-build-in-progress.287924/

    The upgrade will include the entire Desk Department, with new aluminum planes ... and the new LOOP totally revisited.

    Special thanks go to Bitspower, Vincent and Chris who thank immensely for the support, throughout the liquid department. :clap::clap:

    Today I start assembling the fan block with Bitspower grids. :thumb:
    Then the desk will also be modified to have a single block for the fans without (if necessary) disassemble the single fan, but with 4 screws lift the entire block.

    And in the meantime I have to make the thickness below 2 Internal plates, then to have it 3cm below, where the cables can easily pass. :thumb:

    Today I started to insert the legs of the motherboard, and I used the tallest ones I had time to do. :dremel:

    After taking all the measures, today I started to cut and fix everything that was needed on the left bulkhead, where the motherboard and the video card will be installed. :dremel::dremel:

    Today we continue with the changes, and inserting this passage that will connect the 2 radiators together.

    I also start setting up the pumps group, and I start with some hoses and fittings:

    In the front I also insert the flow meters, so check that the liquid circulates:

    Finally I also install the 2 new Bitspower radiators:

    Here's a little tip - installing grommets is easier with a bit of soapy water... :)

    Here are some guys after some trouble ... :rollingeyes:
    Meanwhile, I also inserted the motherboard Asrock Z270 Taichi, and also the video card Evga 1070 FE and are connected to each other with the rigid tubes.
    Meanwhile I also made a change to the desk, eliminating the 2 radiators from the back and I made an External Box, which I will then place under the
    desk, so you have much more free space at the back of the desk. :dremel:
