    Have a couple of updates today, missed some days this week due to Metal gear Solids release
    been anticipating its release for years!

    anyway, before I head back to Afghanistan to capture sheep heres some updates

    Wanted to make some covers for the SSDs, by modding some old 360 HD holders
    I can now cover SSDs without having to mess-about taking my new drives apart & losing
    the warranty.
    also means should I upgrade them later & can just keep using the same covers

    Decided to used the Phobya logo as its dark & mean looking "like the desk"
    & is one of my favourite sponsor logo.








    after drawing & cutting the logos I then painted with the same flat black used on other parts of the desk












    Modified the centre cover to now have an extra blow hole, this is the cover I made to help direct the air towards the GPU.
    the air also travels along the bottom of the cover, will show that when I do the final photos.






    Not a great photo or RGB selection, but this is to show the SSD covers in place along with the blow hole cover that you
    can just about see above the SSDs




    A year or two ago I painted the CM Reaper mouse (white & black)
    so for this desk iv decided to paint it again but just plan flat black to match everything else

    Standard.


    1st mods

    New





    Redone the covers, the carbon I originally used was reflecting too much light for my liking, making it look slightly messy,.
    so, as with the other re-works I went for a more plane & slick look, yep!
    flat black again




    the tape aroud the centers are covering the clear, iv sanded to clear to help with lighting, plan is that they will be RGB.





    one last update,
    Today ASUS has kindly sent me some goodies, the main one is the xonar u7 echelon edition sound card..
    really nice finish on the xonar so I don't want to flat black it if I can help it.

    This is the side compartment completed, redone the leather cover & added extra carpet to the sides, also has
    its own LED lighting to help see whats inside
    I have a USB port for the ASUS TUF Detective & a 5 port USB 3.0 adapter.







    I originally only had super bright white LEDs on the 2 corners, after seeing how it looks all completed & decided to add RGB option, It looks great!
    should have added them from the start, still keeping the super bright white LEDs as there great for back/room lighting.

    This will be the last update before the final photos
    just awaiting the keyboard, new screen & Iv also ordered a new DSLR camera.


    Not planing to change mouse for now, so iv modded the "Reaper" mouse to go with the new theme,
    Black with red lighting & rather than changing the LEDs (approximately 5) I used filters.




    stuck with white for the front, red was too dull against the black mouse mat.








    This is why I need a new camera, the logo & mouse should be a nice red like knight-riders car




    Added the dye (Mayhems Blood Red)
    under white lighting its red, other lighting options make it more black looking just like
    real blood looks at night,
    I like this effect, but im sure I will test some other dye options at some point as this
    is the 1st time iv used clear hard tubes.




    in the back you can see the re-worked fan covers, now flat black with the centres sanded clear to capture light.





    Hope to be back very soon with the final photos,

    Well after what feels like years, the desk is finally done & photographed for all to see

    firstly, I think picking RED as my main colour was a mistake!
    not for me, as it looks fine IRL, but I just cant get the reds to show correct on the photos,
    So any photos that have what looks like PINK or ORANGE lighting please try imagine that its RED lol

    because of this problem I decided to take most photos with blue or white lighting on & cut down on the reds used

    I plan on getting a new camera later so will upload some more if they look any better,
    For now I have plenty of OK photos for you to look at & a youtube vid will be done over the next couple of weeks.


    It will be mostly picture links now, so I will say thanks to everyone for the input during my logs & the positive attitudes that
    help encourage myself & others to keep on building & posting,

    Thanks to all the people that helped me carry things around due to my leg problem,
    Carl, Barry, Ian, Andreas & lots more, especially the wife.
    & all the sponsors that help with the costs of components & support throughout the build.


    This desk was designed with the hope it would look as good OFF as it would on, so it was all about shapes & natural light,
    I have very little light in my small room as you will see soon lol.
    with the shapes came the problem of usability & practicality,
    i tackled this in a couple of ways, not all perfect but enough to hide/store my clutter & make the desk usable for daily tasks
    like gaming


    I know its a bit whack compared to most desks, but I hope you like the final result even if you wouldn't want it in your living-room


    lets crack on so I can get some sleep!
