Alright ... rain rain and more rain, so can't work on the desk ...

So I re-attacked my side window, taking into consideration + and - this time, worked pretty well!




So tonight I dance of joy or I cry and give up ...

Dude, that looks SICK! You're making me jealous! Maybe I should get a red LED 200mm fan for my Cosmos S? Naw, it still won't measure up to this!

IMO put red LED's in middle on both sides. That way it is epic win.

Thanks guys!

Yeah I'm thinking about it, problem is a single array can only hold 5 LEDs, and one with 2 or less red LEDs needs a half W resistor and I only have quarter W resistors, so basically 6 LEDs means a lot more wires and bigger headache, but they do come in pairs so it will always be an option.

Update

Smaug is almost done, it's basically only painting that's left to be done. So I think it needs a proper home!

I've been working on this guy for a week now. It's a "L" shaped desk 5 feet by 10 feet. Pics we're taken with my cell sorry for the bad quality.





More to come.

I used something called No More Nails double sided clear tape. Worked like a charm. It's supposed to be able to hold up to 15lbs of weight so I think it should hold for a couple years.

What's left to do?
- Finish the electrical circuit. (I want to add a switch in the side panel array, but switch will be on the front bezel so I need to make it so I can plug and unplug the wires when I take off the side panel without ripping out anything.)
- Finish the paint.
- Add pieces of screen to cover holes so if there is negative pressure dust doesn't come crawling in the case.
- Find a way to make the accessories become a perfect fit with the custom front bezel (I have a little idea of what to do with this one).

That should be about it me thinks, oh and get my paycheck to order the parts that go in the computer!

Yesterday I finally flipped the desk to see what it looks like and holy **** that thing is HUGE! I love it.
