Me & my daughter have been doing a spot of painting :D

 

Added some red to the Sabertooth x99 MB to tie in with my desk colours a bit better..

 

Mine is the one on the left!

With the arrival of my reservoirs I could start fastening down the top shelf & shape it better,

I also did some work on the inside but had to stop for a bit as I await the pumps so I can make the cuts 

needed before working on the layout a bit more.

 

while I wait I'm getting on with other bits, painted the MB last week & this week iv been making the 

front switch panel to house 5 Phobya push switches..

could have the switch holder in a couple of different positions.

feel free to add your thoughts on what you think looks best :)

Nice color scheme on the motherboard shield! :D

Glad you like :)  Thanks

With the arrival of the reservoirs last week & now the pumps I can workout the internal setup.
over the last week iv added some internal walls & removable bases, installed the 2X reservoirs, 
radiators & soon i will have the pumps in place.
 
When im happy with the layout it will then all be removed before painting/wrapping.
 
after that's completed it will then be time to move the desk inside so i can work on the tubing & wiring.
 
Oh, also went with position 2 for the front panel & edged the front of the desktop.

Using the provided brackets to fit them under the top shelf, will wrap or paint them at later date.

Covered them with some masking tape so as not to scratch them

Im using 2x 360 RADs for this build, they will be fitted to the brackets almost directly under the RES on both sides, Iv decided to move them away from the outer desk edges to help lower fan noise & give better options for dust control.

by doing so I had to add the channels shown in the earlier photos, to help move the hot air out the back of the desk.

 

The Phobya G-Changer 360 RADs V.2 & brackets

As with all new RADs they needed a good clean, using the Blitz Pro kit that Mayhams kindly provided I had good results :)

Added some red to the block

 

20150506_153829_zpscdj9h43u.jpg

 

 

The pumps "Alphacool VPP655" & GPU block "Alphacool NexXxoS GPX - ATI R9 295X2"

also planing to mod them slightly to the same red as the other components.

Now decided where im sticking the 2X pumps, sticking with the symmetrical plans iv placed them

in front of the center of both the RADs

 

20150508_193343_zps4g2wicqe.jpg

 

 

Cut a hole in the bottom to help them get some air, if for any reason they sound loud I will block them again, but did this

on my last desk & they worked fine.

 

20150508_183934_zpsmqii1sl5.jpg

 

 

Padded the sides with hard foam to help reduce any vibrations

 

20150508_193115_zpsdxowa3jj.jpg

 

 

Adding 2x Phobya G1/4 water temp readers to measure the temps before & after the RADs/Components

Here you can see the removable raised platforms, Pumps & Temp sensors on place

Fitted the glass top using some chunky hinges, the glass is 5mm clear toughened,

 

To start with I had to make a template for the cutters

This is the glass getting cut & polished

I now have the final fans needed for the RADs & desk,

Silencio FP 120 (Black) RADs

MegaFlow 200mm (Red LED) Desk

Jetflo 120 (Red LED) Desk

20150522_135855_zpsivpwravf.jpg

20150522_201142_zps5rnjv8pk.jpg

 

 

Im going to be cutting holes in the base of the MB tray & instaling the 200mm fan directly underneath,

This serves 2 purposes, keep the MB cool & the main reason was to get positive air pressure in to the desk.

 

In total I will be having 6/7x120mm & 1x200mm IN, 6x120mm OUT. 

I will try get this done by the weekend and show you some pics, but for now heres some other bits iv been working on.

 

 

Hinges fitted, but will need some adjusting before painting..

Lifts up perfectly, resting flat against the angled shelf & speakers
