Well, since they've sponsored some stuff, it's usual one puts their logos, so they're nicely seen..

No they certainly didn't !
They did sponsor me.
But when you put watercool blocks on the gtx580's you can't see anymore you're using Asus ones.
So i promised them to show it are Asus cards

Got a real nice present from Bigfoot Networks
A Bigfoot Networks™ Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card
Thanks Timo and thanks for the help Xtrafris !





"The Killer™ 2100 Gaming Network Card delivers maximum networking performance for online games, whether you’re playing MMOs or first-person shooters. Featuring Advanced Game Detect™, Killer™ 2100 automatically classifies and accelerates traffic to your game ahead of other network traffic for maximum online game performance and a competitive edge."

Off course i want to try that out, im really in for some on line gaming after such a year



Casemodder Xtrafris also sent me a K`Bling
Wanted to use this to mod it on the Killer™ but seems i don't have enough space.






So first with it's cap removed next to the Gpu's.
Maybe later i'll use a pci-e extender to make some space.





Think i'll just make a square hole in the gtx580 backplate for the network cable.
It's the only Pci-e 4x slot left.



Also got a 7000rpm polisher with some sort of wax from my brother-in-law.
You need to hold it tight, but the effect is perfect !

Finally !!



And still exciting




All unpacked.




Very glad i coated the Bitspower radguards in the same color.




Also the lianli backplate.



This is how it will look.
Monday ill get some new rubber tape for the desk and glass so i can lift it in the desk holder.







Before the desk goes into desk holder i first wanted to polish it, but need a new polisher first, this one had no hairs left

Small update.

Changed 2 fittings, looked nicer .




Sleeved some led cables, and modded the Killer 2100 in the gtx580 backplate.
(Also a beer with my neigbour )




Fans also in its place.




And the Ram leds in action.
Think it'll look nice in the dark.



Also made a small movie of the leds and the mess

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQMYN9EZgJ0


Waited for this picture for 8 months to see this result myself
Im Very happy with it !




Bottom almost ready, still need 1 radguard.




Very slowly it gets its old shape

Been busy with the PSU's, needed the most efficient way for the cables and the airflow

Also the loop is ready in the backside.


This was a small solution to get as much as possible space for cables next to the psu.




On both sides of the desk a Bitspower mini X-station for fans and molex connections.




Here i had war with the cables a few times



And the main battlefield.




I knew i could get it smaller !



First leds are working.
Also some cables ready for under the mainboard tray.




Further on with the pump-tray and got the reservoir hanging again.



Used the same anti vibration rubber under my HDD's and tray as i use for my glass.
I really love this stuff.




Guess cable management will come later, more and more cables every day




Also a small uv led stroke for the right side fans.




Now also leds in the pumptops.
I like it more then the regular black ones i had.
This photo is with UV leds in it, but thats WAY too purple.
But somehow i cant show it in photo's




So i tried blue leds after that, and i liked it

Took me a full hour to find the combination so i can use 2 SLI pipes for the right pump




Molex plugs on the leds of the mainboard




So ill be busy the rest of the day connecting all these cables




Custom length BP pipes










Bottom also finished.




Time to fill up




Just had to make some pictures.








Back to getting the system up and running
So the rubbers for the glass.




First "backplate" in it's place.




Now find a way to work away the cables for 3 screens.

Also very handy those usb connections on Dells




And some more night pictures.

Sanded and polished the logo again.




Quite some work.





Don't wanted it to mirror to much.



Freddy from Highflow was my saviour
Sometimes you can't go on cause you miss 1 cable or connector of a few euro's
Thanks Freddy !!




Also ordered some other stuff also for future projects.









Different sizes of M4, next week i get M3 too




Tapped it at the last moment for the bitspower thumbscrews.




And ready to shoot some photo's.

Here's the link to post #2 with the pictures i took for the Cooler Master Casemod Competition



Had a Q-pad CT for 4 years and was still very happy with it.
But i just needed a smaller one so ordered a Q-pad UC small.
But somehow it doesn't registrate my mx510 and mionix anymore that good.
Contacted Mionix and they wanted to send me a mousepad for on the plexi plate !

Thanks Peter & Richard !







Going to cut it this way i guess.




And almost done !
Still need to make the edges a little more rounded.










Ordered something at work, they use it for small 9-30V motors on ships etc.
Im very curious about it how it will work.
I want to use it for the 2 D5 pumps later.




This way i can use 2 Bulgin momentary switches to set the speed from 10% till 100%
Also when it's powered off and on, it will remember the last speed setting.

I just can't stop, so some pictures again
This is my latest update 28-5-2011.
So i hope you liked this buildlog with a lot of pictures

Ordered some extra black bolts for fixing fans to the rad.
Also for future usage off course.






Also got a nice package from Highflow




2 momentary switches will be for "dimming" the 2 pumps.
The 3rd is to replace the "dot illuminated" switch i use for the reset button.
I do like the ring illuminated more.




Also wanted to try the Bitfenix sleeved cables.
I'll use these for the pumps too.
Very nice and soft sleeve by the way.






And this is all i was able to do this week
