    Cheers mate i'm deffinitaly hoping it will look badass although have just come to a startaling realisation that i wont be able to get it inside with it put together, mate just moved in with me and we built his over a weekend its much smaller than the one i am building and it only just fit through the doorway in the hall so fingers crossed the other side of the house will be easier

    i know its not out dated. but its been out for couple of years now although must say a refresh to the CPU's would be nice. chances are if we see something released i might upgrade the cpu in the future.

    hoping the QDC fittings come in the next week or so
    and still need to get the glass top made up. pretty sure thats all thats halting the project

    yea x79 is pricey but you get the all around performance especially for gaming etc. Its the only enthusiast platform right now lol might as well get in while its hot and all the kinks are ironed out, well except for the Ivy bridge that's literally about to drop lol btw sick desk bench setup man wow that's awesome

    got some time over the weekend to get some more work done. decided against the single back seperator
    and have gone for 2 with a mini cave in the middle looks a lot nicer provides that little bit more room.
    have been trying to decide whether to add another reservior (or 2) behind and under the main reservior
    not sure how it will look guess once i paint the new deviders and get the top on will make a decision.

    and for the photos

    finally have time to post some more details about the build, top of the desk is pretty much complete
    just have a couple of holes to drill for the watercooling tube and knock up the base, i had a fiddle
    around with the fridge idea during the week and came to the conclusion that was stupid enough to even
    consider it... didn't pan out but no problem as the 2 radiators will easily be enough for the rig.
    got round to cleaning the dust and crap out of the desk and wipe it down i was actually quite impressed
    how well it came up... now all that's left is new temp sensor displays (wanted red got blue) and also
    a 2nd reservoir to mount with the pump as a fill-port for the whole thing.

    finally had some time Monday to get a little work done on the build, firstly i finished mounting the LED's and UV Tubes,
    and have had time to get one of the radiators mounted along with the power supply/s (one on display) and have got most of
    the tubing in ready to mount the Mobo just have to get around to finishing the base for it and drag it back inside to set
    it all up.. didn't take into account the size of the doors


    LED's after i fixed the switch problem that burnt out one of the cables... lack of sleep does that



    The Red Temp sensors finally arrived got them in looks far better over the blue ones. thinking of using them on the next build






    Power Supply Fit in wasn't sure how it would look but it looks better than having nothing in that gap
