  1. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jBy4r7 Good morning DDCM fans and followers! How about another DDCM desk PC update? We first snagged a great deal on a water temp sensor plug and a handful of 120 fan grills. We immediately jumped at the opportunity to test our InWin Aurora fans in our intake mounting solution. Just need to order my fan filters from ModMyMods.com and install our rubber silencers. Then kept the progress going by installing our Eisbecher reservoirs and our NexXxos
  2. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jBy4r7 Good morning DDCM fans and followers! How about another DDCM desk PC update? We’ll start of today’s update with our newest parts and tools! Our first is a package from ModMyMods that included our PCIe riser cable and an Alphacool Eisblock Mod kit in white. Going to paint the block cover red to match the rest of the build. Second, the wife surprised me by buying the crimpers I had on my wishlist. So….. we can start attempting making the custom cables that we need *dance* Then
  3. Good morning DDCM fans and followers! How about another DDCM desk PC update? We start off first by sharing our sexy new mouse, while nothing too impressive it matches our theme very well b/c I mean… dragons! Old mouse – Logitech M510 Wireless Mouse New mouse – One-Up Chinese Dragon gaming mouse Now onto the meat and potatoes of the desk update…. We first focused on the component plate, getting it attached to the cabinet with a stainless steel piano hinge, which of course we first had to cut to size.
  4. Good morning DDCM fans and followers! How about another DDCM desk PC update? We definitely don't deserve it, but the sponsors see something they like. I only hope that I fulfill this trust I've been given We start out by setting up some ghetto lighting in the dungeon to hopefully improve some of the video quality. Some drop lights plus LED bulbs add a bit of even lighting…. Kinda. After which we dug into our first package from Nanoxia! First thing we did after recording our videos was to update our sad excuse for a table with our
  5. Good morning DDCM fans and followers! How about another DDCM desk PC update? But first I want to say how much I appreciate each one of my fans and those who comment on my work. My passion is PC modding, but the fuel that ignites my drive is the interaction I get with my fans. So, again, thank you. Now enough with the touchy feely stuff and get to the real heart warming stuff! We marked out the component backplates on some ¼” white acrylic, then grabbed the jigsaw and got straight to cutting. We cut out the motherboard plate, GPU plate, SSD covers, and th
  6. Good morning DDCM fans and followers! How about some DDCM desk PC current state updates? First our current state of DDCM desk PC, we now have both side windows cut out, the base plate cut and placed, and everything trimmed to fit nicely. Next steps, attach the hinge, cut the desk top, and get ready to start painting! Our biggest thanks to ModMyMods, Alphacool.com, and In Win USA for helping make this a reality! For those bored enough... keep reading Speaking of a hinge.... here's ours in all it's 24" steel glory! Go
  7. Thank you! Slow progress but excited about this project, we are really needing to finish this so I get off that poor excuse for a table haha. Welcome aboard, hope you like what you see going forward.
  8. Good morning DDCM fans and followers! Time for another #DDCMdesk update: We’ll start off this update with the updated renders. Made to match the cabinet shape a little better and shortened the length to fit in the new room. We lost the Sketchup file and had to rebuild from scratch so I apologies if things are a little off. Next we’ll move onto showing off our legs….. our black IKEA table legs that is. Black polished metal and adjustable. Going to work perfectly! While waiting for
  9. Good morning DDCM fans and followers! Time for another #DDCMdesk update: I apologize for the lack of quicker updates, the project is on a slight hiatus as we get settled into our new house and I have been DIY working all over the house. The wife has kept me busy on the projects so I’ve only managed to get my workshop set up. But I wanted to drop a quick update to introduce our new sponsor! That’s right! InWin has been gracious enough to sponsor DDCM desk project! They are going to be sending two of their awesome pr
  10. 08/14/2017 Good morning DDCM fans and followers! Time for another #DDCMdesk update: First, I share our current setup…… Be gentle on this poor man. Second, the last progress of the desk included mounting the mid shelf to the back piece. Last but not least, we have our first procured part for the desk….. a Seagate Barracuda 2TB drive. Initially purchased to back up our media/important files before I dare shut down everything and move it to the new house.
  11. 07/03/2017 Good morning DDCM fans and followers! Time for another #DDCMdesk update: Once the panels were cut, we needed to get all the miter cuts so that we can continue forward with the brads and glue. Thank you to the one and only Mod-squito for confirming my technique would work. Nothing like trying to cut angles with only a skill saw. Always have a straight edge guide or at least a factory cut edge of a board. Once all the mitered edges were set up and verified everything joined up the way it should
  12. 26 June 2017 Good morning DDCM fans and followers! Time for another #DDCMdesk update: Today let’s work with a little wood. Some might argue my choice of material, but sticking with the theme of being unique, I picked up a sheet of ¾” Radiata Pine Plywood. First steps began with marking out my first cuts of the pieces. Hardest part was trying to figure out how much angle I needed to ensure my planned components would fit. Thankfully, my old, well used components come to my rescue again.
  13. It’s time for DDCM to start the next project! So… I present to you, DDCM Desk! Unique. Simple. Powerful. We will start by thanking our sponsors that have partnered with us to make this project a reality! First, we start with ModMyMods.com(MMM), who partnered with DDCM for our last mod, Project: Military Tech. They have continued their support and I’m very excited that they are coming onboard again. Second, we welcome a new partner with DDCM, Alphacool! After hearing about our project and about PMT, they were happy t
  14. The astrological concept of Alex's build is ingenious. Those reservoirs are unique and fit the build well. He definitely gets my vote for this event.
