    Hi there !!


    Finally back with a new project. A bit busy those times 'cause I bought a brand new CNC. So I waste a lot of time to get acquainted with the machine. But now, it's time to start this project :rock:



    First I want to thank 4 partners who decided to help me during this built :clap:

    Every things are ready to start the built, only the last package is missing, but it's the most important... the case, Psu and fans. But it must arrive soon ( I hope ;) )


    Let's have a look on the equipment which will be used

    - Thermaltake Core P5
    - Intel i7 6700K
    - ASRock B150 Gaming K4/D3 Fatality
    - Avexir Blitz 1.1 4x4 Go with custom heatsink
    - Asus Gtx 970 Strix
    - Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G 850W Platinum
    - 4 Tt Riing RGB 140mm

    For the watercooling system

    - Rad Pacific RL 420
    - Wb CPU Pacific W2
    - Wb GPU Pacific V-GTX 970 V2
    - Pump Pacific P1 Black D5
    - Fittings for rigid tubbing Tt Pacific Chrome


    And also some products from my compagny ( cable holder, fan grills etc... :) )




    Well, some pictures


    for watercooling:

    And ASRock's mother board:

    As long as I'm waiting for the Core P5, I will bring some modifications on what I already own.
    So, I have started with a new heat sink for the south bridge on the mother board. For me, the original design is not in accordance with the others ;) . Almost finished, I just have to inodize it


    Some pictures:

    That's all for the moment, I will update the thread soon




    See you :D

    I'm working on a Core P5 right now myself. It's a VERY nice case, surprisingly high quality for the price. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

    looks very nice, but perhaps a more modern and edgy font for the text on the ram heatsink?
