    MILK on the Wall

    Hey guys

    Time for another build :D

    After discovering the Core P5, I immidietly fell in love with the case and decided that this would be the base for my main gaming rig.

    The color scheme will be BLACK, WHITE, and RED.

    I am of course, using liquid cooling in the build :)

    Now I've cheated a bit, and have been working on this along side my other, recently finished, project.

    Now on with it :dremel:

    The hardware:

    • CPU:Intel Core i7 2700K
    • MOBO:ASUS MAXIMUX V GENE
    • RAM:Corsair Vengeance 16 GB DDR3
    • GFX:EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti SC+ ACX 2.0+
    • SSD:SAMSUNG 850 EVO 250Gb
    • HDD:Wester Digital WD15EARS
    • PSU:Cooler Master V1000 PSU
    • CASE:Thermaltake Core P5

    The cooling:

    • CPU:EK Supreme HF
    • GFX:EK FC Titan X
    • RAD:HW Labs Black Ice GTX 360
    • PUMP:Laing DDC 1T Plus 18W
    • RES:EK DDC X-RES top
    • FITTINGS:EK HDC
    • TUBE:EK PETG
    • FANS:Phobya Nano-2G
    • CONTROLLER:NZXT Sentry LX
    • COOLANT:Ice Dragon Cooling Nanofluid WHITE

    I've chosen to show the unboxing of the case, since I had a hard time finding decent pictures when reading reviews, so I though some of you might find it interesting :)

    Unboxing the Core P5:

    Inside, as seen from the back:

    All this was crammed inside the case:

    Spacers, for the backside of the case, when wallmounting, these will of course be used:

    [​IMG]

    The feet for the case:

    [​IMG]

    These were tucked inside:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Holes for aligning the feet to the case:

    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately not all types of screwdrivers fit, in this case my Bacho with magnet feature.. Really was a ***** to mount without it, screws kept falling off and inside the feet :-/

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Done:

    [​IMG]

    3.5" mounting bays for harddrives:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Samsung going to the front line:

    [​IMG]

    WD going under cover:

    [​IMG]

    Mounting holes for SSD, but only for one:

    [​IMG]

    Mounted, as seen from the back, the M3 screws used, were not included, got these from MDPC-X some time ago:

    Front:

    [​IMG]

    Mounting the WD:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    GFX mounting brackets for vertical view/mounting. This is a REALLY nice feature IMO:

    [​IMG]

    Getting there:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    GTX 980 Ti :D

    Fits perfectly:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    As seen from below:

    [​IMG]

    PCI brackets:

    [​IMG]

    Now I don't really like the design of these, so am goint to change them with some aluminum ones from Lian Li:

    [​IMG]

    Just for fun, I tried to weigh them, to find out if there was any difference:

    [​IMG]

    20 grams in total, well I guess everything counts when it's going on the wall :D

    [​IMG]

    Test mounting the fan controller and radiator:

    [​IMG]

    Unpacking the standoffs for the acrylic window:

    Supreme HF, as is:

    [​IMG]

    Mounted:

    [​IMG]

    FC Titan X, D.I.Y. bending kit fra EK and Ice Dragon cooling nano fluid, MILKY WHITE of course :D The liquid is just beautiful :jawdrop: well worth the money.

    [​IMG]

    Unboxing the D.I.Y. kit, I've found that the silicon could have been longer. It would have made, bending more complex easier.

    [​IMG]

    GFX ready to get stripped naked:

    [​IMG]

    FC Titan X:

    I like it! Great job with the build. I am working on a build using the same case. Glad a manufacturer finally made this kind of case, and that it was reasonably priced.

    Thanks mate :) yeah I was positively surprised when I saw the first review for the case, made me wanna do something with it :D

    Hehe, well the technology for pasturisation and homogenization is at its peak, so hopefully not for a long time :D

    Glad you like it, thanks for looking :)

    Wow! That black and white is super slick!
    I would love a build exactly like this except for different fans.

    Awesome mod.
