    The ASUS Sabertooth X99, the most tidy looking motherboard iv ever seen, should be quite easy to mod to my colour scheme.
    Will be using this MB along with some DDR4 & the Intel i7-5820k.

    Done some shots with & without the caps/covers




    P.S 1st page has been updated with some specs

    Iv stopped working on the outside of the desk for the moment as Im awaiting the reservoirs so I can complete the top shelf
    & start to fasten things into place,
    but with the arrival of most of the other Phobya & OCOOL parts & the X99 motherboard, I could start working in the inside,
    so Iv fitted a motherboard tray & sorted the housing for the 2X RADs.

    I'm not following a design for the inside so I tend to spend hours just sitting looking at the empty cavity & trying
    to picture ideas in my head lol
    however I have worked out where the main components will be going.


    here's one of the packages I received thanks to Phobya & OCOOL (Alphacool)
    All sorts of goodies, RADs, controllers, cables, hard tubes, switches, GPU & CPU blocks & many more that I will show in more detail
    as the build progresses




    Another secret I keep to myself & a couple of people was the idea to have the sides lift away from the desk to make room for
    storage & also make use of all the available space...

    As both the secret ideas worked out ok I will show you one of the original designs for the desk, kept them a secret encase things
    went wrong with the plan.




    I played with lots of ways to accomplish the task, the first two ideas FAILED
    but after one more attempt I cracked it

    So now the side will lift up & out to the side making room for my gamepads & other bits that make desks look a bit untidy.




    Almost all the parts inside the desk are removable, no screws used so as to make it easyer to MOD at a later date & also reduce the
    weight when moving.

    This double platform will hold the pads & bits, can be lifted out from the top or from the side.



    They all still need tidying up a bit & sanding down,
    waiting until most of the desk is complete so if anything gets damaged as im working I wont have wasted too much time.


    Cutting up a cheap old case for the parts, MB tray & front drive bays.




    MB in place, will MOD more at later date.
    For now I just want to make sure everything has a place.




    MB back plate is just temp & will also be changed later in the build.




    Cutting 4 holes for the RADs exhaust.






    I will be using 2X Phobya RAD mounts to fasten the RADs to the underneath of the desktop.




    As Im wanting the RADs further away from the back I added some barriers for the hot air, raised as high as possible.






    The RADs are attached to the desktop but the exhausts are attached to the back of the desk, I made the fittings as tight as possible
    but to eliminate any small gaps that hot air could escape though Iv added some padding that's been coated to help keep the softness but also create a thin skin.

    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

    Thanks
    Not unlimited funds, almost 0 now
    without sponsors it would have been a smaller update, not the best timing for me to be splashing out on a new PC setup tbh

    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.






    The next 3 photos show the cover thats now in place to hide the leg cutout.








    Some of the base covers in place, & a better view of the leg cover






    Cut a fan hole for the V1200 PSU, but not sure im having it in this position now?








    The Phobya 450 reservoirs, used them on my 2013 build, decided to stick with them again







    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






    A final pic for you, looks almost complete here, but still lots of work to be done
