    They do produce heat but not as much as other more traditional light sources. I would imagine if you get enough of them together in a small space, like that light board, then the heat could be substantial enough to damage something.

    Thanks guys, i'll keep trying to make it better :)

    The led board is only used for some photo's of the desk and other UV-active products in the future.
    And while im surfing there's no single uv led shining in my face :)

    I'm interested in seeing how those Lamptron clamps go, I have been looking at them for my next loop, just an insurance because I am stretching 3/8" tube over 1/2" fittings.

    Yesterday the idea came up for hiding my cables from the 3 screens.

    [​IMG]

    Some won't like it, but for me this works great since my pc is more open then closed :p
    So this way it's very easy to take away the backplates.

    [​IMG]


    It's only connected with the left side of the panel.

    [​IMG]


    2 hours later it was really empty, looks like a reverse buildlog :(

    [​IMG]


    Sanding it some.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Like a bomb exploded.

    [​IMG]


    Here i was finished for today :)

    I read "Reversed bulldog".

    However, nice progress - looking forward to seeing it powdercoated.

    Holy crap. Im out of the modding scene (basically when G69T was finished), then I come back and see this. Holy bejeesus! If I had this, I would never actually use the computer, I would just stare at it, not only because its so pretty, but also because I would be so god damn proud of myself for making such an awesome creation.

    Thanks man, you inspire me a lot too :)

    Made the last fillport hole for future usage

    [​IMG]


    Almost forgot i need to sand these too so they can be powder-coated in the same color.

    [​IMG]


    Hmm nasty job, sanding anodized aluminum by hand, think i'll use the grinder for it.

    Quite a busy day.

    Still had to sand some plates.
    Then my wife came in with a nice box.


    [​IMG]

    Also an other package i ordered at Highflow

    [​IMG]

    These Cubitek extension cables are 50cm, very thin and not expensive at all

    [​IMG]

    Later that day i brought away my desk to the powder coater.

    [​IMG]


    As curious as i am i asked everything :)

    Here all the uncoated products slowly move to a man who "powders" all the hard to reach spots.

    [​IMG]

    This guys :)
    2 meters behind him the machine powders the rest.

    [​IMG]


    It's just some sort of dry powder that normally would let go.
    But because it's electrically loaded it's sticks to the product.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After that everything goes to the oven.

    [​IMG]


    Here it's heated up till 200 degrees Celsius so the coat gets very hard and equal

    [​IMG]


    Back home i had to unpack the BP box :)

    [​IMG]

    Offcourse i want to use these on my backplate after getting such a nice box :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Want to use these Ram Mods for under my GPU's.

    [​IMG]

    Also want to use these X-stations since they are smaller and have female molex.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Cause the desk will be black soon and all my blocks are plexi, i will try these blocks in plexi too.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Same here.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    And some extra and new kind of fittings, ill need them for future updates :p

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Got a real nice present from Bigfoot Networks !
    A Bigfoot Networks™ Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card :)
    Thanks Timo and thanks for the help Xtrafris !)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    "The Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card delivers maximum networking performance for online games, whether you’re playing MMOs or first-person shooters. Featuring Advanced Game Detect™, Killer™ 2100 automatically classifies and accelerates traffic to your game ahead of other network traffic for maximum online game performance and a competitive edge."

    Off course i want to try that out, im really in for some on line gaming after such a year :)

    [​IMG]

    Casemodder Xtrafris also sent me a K`Bling :D
    Wanted to use this to mod it on the Killer™ but seems i don't have enough space.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    So first with it's cap removed next to the Gpu's.
    Maybe later i'll use a pci-e extender to make some space.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Think i'll just make a square hole in the gtx580 backplate for the network cable.
    It's the only Pci-e 4x slot left.

    [​IMG]

    Also got a 7000rpm polisher with some sort of wax from my brother-in-law.
    You need to hold it tight, but the effect is perfect !

    [​IMG]


    Very glad i coated the Bitspower radguards in the same color.

    [​IMG]


    Also the lianli backplate.

    [​IMG]

    This is how it will look.
    Monday ill get some new rubber tape for the desk and glass so i can lift it in the desk holder.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Before the desk goes into desk holder i first wanted to polish it, but need a new polisher first, this one had no hairs left :)
