    Alright so I'm about to spam the crap out of this first post with pictures! :) Sorry for that. I have been crazy busy building and laying it out that I haven't had time to post a log about it. This desk is for a client of mine and I'd like to give a little info for the purpose of the build to give everyone an idea why it is going to be the way it is.

    First off Phil does web traffic among other things. So he needs a pc that can be on all the time that he doesn't have to worry about the liquid setup. This part of the desk will be a 24/7 system that he can remote into from anywhere. The other setup is more extreme and his daily driver. He will work from it and game from it. He will be running 4 x 144hz Asus monitors on this setup where as the other system will only have power and a nic hooked up. So lets try and do some specs. I'm gonna wing this part and I'll come back and try and fill anything I miss.

    Work side -

    Asus Sabertooth X79
    Intel i7 4820K
    Crucial Ballistic low pro 64gb 2133mhz
    Samsung Evo 500gb SSD
    Evga GT610
    Adaptec 6805 Raid card
    Western Digital 4TB Black x 6 in Raid 10
    LG DVD burner
    Corsair H105 AIO cooler
    Cooler Master Hybrid 1050watt PSU

    Main system-

    Asus Rampage IV Black
    Intel i7 4930K
    Corsair Vengance Pro 64gb 2133mhz
    Samsung 840 Pro x 2 in Raid 0 for OS
    Evga GTX Titan x 3
    Adaptec 6805 Raid card
    Western Digital 4TB Black x 6 in Raid 10
    LG Bluray burner
    Cooler Master Hybrid 1050watt PSU

    Cooling and Misc.-

    Aquaero 6 XT
    Aquacomputer high flow USB
    Aquacomputer temp sensors x 3
    Aquacomputer Kryographics for GTX TITAN - Acrylic Glass, back plates and bridge
    EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ cpu block
    Redharbinger FMJ Series Stainless Steel Reservoir Cover - Classic - 250e Black w/ EK-MultiOption RES X3 250 x 3
    Bitspower fittings up the wazoo!
    Hardware Labs 360mm and 480mm radiators
    Bitspower dual D5 pump mod and covers
    Koolance PMP450 pumps
    Mayhems Sunshine Yellow Pastel

    Cooler Master 120mm JetFlows x 16 Red LED
    RGB kit from here

    Ok I think that about covers it. I may have missed something so I may add later. So lets start with the Red Harbinger Cross Desk

    I didn't get a lot of picks in progress but I think you'll like what I did take pics of. :) Here's that moment where you figure out that the board is bigger than the board that was used for grommet layout. OOPS!

    [​IMG]

    So I made my own :)

    So lets move on to some water layout.

    Looking good. Not sure why you chose to have the radiator that way so that you get very long tubing in front of it. But no complaints :) Following for sure.

    Looking cool! Why do you use one water circle for both systems or do you only cool the left system?

    Simple, Copper is stronger. :) This system has to travel to Oregon and then he may move shortly after that. So it may travel a bit and i'll feel better knowing its copper. And Thank you! :)

    Sorry for delay! Here we go......

    Lets start with the custom made monitor bracket for muti-monitor setup. Thanks to Larry AKA LazyMan from WCM we are in business!

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I installed a lock screw for the pole so it doesn't spin. Ready for powder coating.....

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Next test fitting the desk in the crate for travel.....

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Couple close ups of some parts....

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Got the sleeving finished...

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Last minute change. I added the Hybrid controller to the top of the drives to control the back fans....

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now the legs. Thomas from White Light Laser did the acrylic piece for the legs......

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now installed....

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It may look a little pink in pic, well my camera sucks. Here it is RED. :)

    Here's another look at the sleeving and prepping for a dry fire (no liquid). I ended up changing the cable combs to Lutro)'s newer ones.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    So i'm sure you can guess whats next!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Until then.....................
