Made the last fillport hole for future usage

Almost forgot i need to sand these too so they can be powder-coated in the same color.

P1060645%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Hmm nasty job, sanding anodized aluminum by hand, think i'll use the grinder for it.

Quite a busy day.

I brought away my desk to the powder coater.

P1060679%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

As curious as i am i asked everything :)

Here all the uncoated products slowly move to a man who "powders" all the hard to reach spots.

P1060680%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

This guy :)

2 meters behind him the machine powders the rest.

P1060681%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

It's just some sort of dry powder that normally would let go.

But because it's electrically loaded it's sticks to the product.

P1060682%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060683%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060684%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

After that everything goes to the oven.

P1060685%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Here it's heated up till 200 degrees Celsius so the coat gets very hard and equal

P1060686%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

I want to use these on my backplate to hold the pci-e cards in it's place

P1060701%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Also some new watercooling stuff to get the right looks in the desk.

Cause the desk will be black soon and all my blocks are plexi, i will try these blocks in plexi too.

P1060710%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Same here.

P1060712%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

And some extra and new kind of fittings, ill need them for future updates :P

Got some new hardware i also have to build in,

A Killerâ„¢ 2100 Gaming Network Card

"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 :)

P1060244%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060247%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

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.

P1060250%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060722%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

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.

P1060723%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

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 !

P1060745%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060746%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060748%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060749%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060751%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1060752%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

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 :)

Sorry for the downtime of the pictures :P

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.

P1060811%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

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

P1060814%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Here i had war with the cables a few times :P

P1060820%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

And the main battlefield.
