Hi everyone!
 
Let me first introduce myself :)
 
I’m Peter Brands, 35 years young and from a little town in the middle of The Netherlands called Urk.
I’m an electrician, and mostly active on trawlers, vessels and luxury yachts.
I’ve been an online gamer and hardware enthusiast since 1995 where I got my online nick ‘L3p’ and started modding in 2009.
Some might know me from my desk-pc builds ‘L3p D3sk’ and 'Cross Desk' or scratch build ‘L3pipe’.
 
I have to admit I'm not really a competitive casemodder, more a passionate liquidcooling enthusiast.
But with the Tt P5 and the idea I have as you can see in the banner I just couldn't resist :)

Picked up the laminated glas panel for the Tt d3sk.
 
67%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG
 
 
Also picked up something awesome to complete this desk setup :)
 
68%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG
 
 
Back to the 'powerbar'
 
69%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG
 
 
2 molex lines directly from PSU to the right side.
 
70%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG
 
 
Some wire management inside the P5
 
71%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

83%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG


I'm working with several controllers for fans and lighting and want to have them in groups.
Fans - Top lighting - Bottom lighting
Need multiple cables and extensions from side to side through the 'powerbar'

84%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG


Like this

85%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

87%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

88%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

Awesome piece you built there man, I like the slick style and how the lights shine through, this is a gamers bat cave :), I also like how it would be easy for someone to clean and replace pieces on your design, nice tip on cable management, the whole ting looks clean no messy cables at the back, easy access to important parts that might need replacing all in all best build for me. Good Luck! looking forward to you winning
