TtD3sk_1024.JPG
 
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 :)

More drilling, cutting, filing and sanding.

 

 

65%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

 

Came up with an little idea to bring 12V for fans, pump and lighting to the right side of the desk. 

 

66%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

 

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 :)

Test

 

72%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

73%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

 

Shortening the massive steel poles which will hold the glass panel.

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

 

86%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

 

Also want some cable managements, all extra cable out of sight in the P5

 

87%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

88%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

The loop. Finally! :)

 

First some pads underneath the GPU's

 

90%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

 

And the first fittings and pipe

 

91%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

92%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

 

Works like a charm

95%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

 

Should become something like this.

 

96%20%5B550xl3pTt%5D.JPG

 

 

But still lots to do.

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

Hey man, nice modding you got there, i am a huge fan and user of thermaltake products, i am a computer tech by profession, but still my heart is for gaming. I have never modded a pc before, but looking into someones modded pc had me encourage to modd for myself, as of your build man, you really make something out of your imagination, i know you had hard time maybe, calculating and planning this build, keep it up :)
