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 .

SSD Drive Cage for the 2 Corsair drives (in Progress)

And i came to a conclusion ,
its dabgerous to go shopping :)
I needed one drill bit,
bought the one ,but ended up with a whole set extra,with about a hundred bits ;)

Image
Image
Image
Image

here are the parts in progress for the compartment under the desk,
had to put on some Wood dye,so the colours match.'
Image
Image
Image
Image

Working on the Door for the Underthedesk Compartment for router and power adapter.
This will be the door handle.
Image
Image

Under the Desk compartment almost done (on the Thor D3sk)
Some Detail work left.And maybe integrate some more ideas.

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

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)
Image

Doing some work on the Thor D3sk,Cablemanagement holes,for the 24pin,8pin cpu,and 4 8pin Pcie,
altough i think i will have to change the Pcie hole because i am not sure exactly where i will route them exactly.

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.

Jojo....very nice to "meet" you!

That is one BAD ASS setup you've made! I am in love with your desk! Sadly, I don't have the skills to make one like yours! But I do plan on doing something "self made" in the very near future!

You have some mad skills brother! I look forward to more of your posts and/or videos!!!

Hey everyone,

Here is a short Video i made onn how i play /sit in front of the desk,
since this is actually something people are interessted in knowing,hopefully this explains/if not feel free to ask.

No it is not Uncompfortable,although my legs look a bit crushed on the video,
usually my chair isn't that high and my arms rest on the desk(wich was not realy an option while recording)

Second reason for making this video,
To try out my skills with Adobe premiere pro,
realy like the programm,But still lots to learn,(please don't judge)

Enjoy the Video ,any tips on editing are very much apprichiated :)

They send you lots of goodies, don't they? I like the acrylic pipes. Much better than the flexible tubing.
