    Hi everyone,

    8)Cutom Acrylic Motherboard tray wit LED
    9)New Fans From Corsair (Corsair AF 120 LED blue)+
    10)Vandal Power and reset Button
    11)Drain and Fill Port ( A must have on any watercooling Pc,makes Live alot easyier)

    Here are the radiator mounts (since i wanted to put in some extra cooling,
    240 and 360 EK PE Coolstream side by side,since they are quite slim i was abler to put the in the small compartment where the powersupply will be.

    And I already shortened the legs ,since i want to be able to mount 2 extra 24" screens on top of the 2 x 27",
    so i dont want to have the setup to high,took off 10cm .

    Started on the interior of the compartment under the Desk,power adapter installed(but still have to route the cable somewhere nice)
    and lightning adapter mounted on the wall as well(this will be much cleaner than the previous Thor D3sk V1)

    Hey everyone here a small gadget that just arrived,
    since i am still waiting on the powersupply i will just be waiting and stocking up on tools,

    Well now for the Gadget,this is the GOverlay LCD display,fully programmable.
    I was looking for a small display on ebay (because i like to see the status on my Heat of the Cpu Gpu ,)so after some browsing and searching around,i stumbled on this .

    It is fully compitable with AIDA64,and hardwaremonitor,and you are able to get a lot of other
    Plugins,
    It also has a gaming mode,wich means when you enter sertain games it will show you certain information about that game,
    best application to make use of this will probably be Need for speed,the hwole display can become a Speedometer.

    I hope to bring some more build updates soon,
    Keep you posted,thank you for checking out my log.
    Stay tuned.

    Hey mate nice build, love your progress. One question, how did you go about getting sponsors? Do you seek them out or do they seek you out? Because I have made one of these desk builds and it cost me loads haha and I am about to start a second build inside of a cabinet, so I imagine having these sponsors will save you a bit of money. Heres my build log for the desk I made if you wanted to see it. http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=1132057
