  1. Finished build video is up. Thanks for voting! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHH6QSWXO-0
  2. Thanks guys! I'll post benchmarks ASAP. It was very low temp at idle, but now I want to push it!
  3. Thank you! I would have to change the loop and make two separate loops, which is possible, but I love it this way Hope you all vote for me! http://casemod.thermaltake.com/2016s1/vote.html
  4. Thank you I tried out some other colours on the fans, but the green definitely looks best with the coolant and cables! Maybe if I get bored I can change the color though
  5. Looks awesome, I think my favourite part might still be the happy accident with the light on the floor!
  6. Hi guys, I would like to thank Thermaltake and all the sponsors for inviting me to this competition and making this project possible. It's been challenging at times, I was hit with many delays, but got there in the end! The finished build photos are below. I'll also post a loop fill video as soon as I finish editing it! I hope you like what I created - Project p5yche, a twin Core P5 mod.
  7. I made some detailing for the window using vinyl. To fit with the Greek theme ('Psyche' was the Greek goddess of the soul), I chose a Greek pattern. Here's a sneak peak...
  8. Been very busy today... filling the loop and taking lots of photos. I'll be posting the fill video and photos as soon as they're edited.
  9. Thank you for your kind comments. Hope you like the finished build!
  10. Thanks I originally planned to mount the GPUs vertically, but in the end decided to mount them conventionally. It allowed me to make cleaner looking tubing runs, and also to show off the PCIE cables.
  11. To fit better with the theme, I made some green and white vinyl stickers for the Riing fans. Leak testing!
  12. I spent a long time sleeving this week! Really happy with the neon green colour sleeving from E22, it's a nice vivid colour and will match the coolant very well.
  13. Thanks guys. I'm busy working hard to get the sleeving done at the moment!
  14. 24 Thermaltake Riing 120 mm RGB fans fitted! Also got the top tubing runs sorted now I have the flow meters. Looking good in green...
  15. With the case assembled and hardware installed, it's time to construct the watercooling loop. I'm using the cutting tool provided in the kit from Thermaltake. This works really well, very quick and only gives a slight burr on the inner edge of the tube, that is easy to remove. Started off cutting the straight runs to connect the radiators to each other. First bend in place - connecting the left radiator to the reservoir. The bending insert and mandrel from Thermaltake made this a breeze. All the tubing in place, apart from the top run from the motherboard block to the radiator. This run is actually longer than 1m (the length of the tubing pieces), so I will be using the flow indicators from Thermaltake to break up the length.
  16. Got the case powder coated white, riveted / bolted the two parts together, and started fitting the hardware to make the loop. Here you can see some of the green detailing I've done on the motherboard and will do elsewhere, using vinyl. Starting to come together...
  17. Cutting the backplate for the ASUS X99 Sabertooth thermal armour so it fits with the full cover water block. Here is the part that overlaps: Cutting the backplate to fit: And the finished motherboard (minus some detailing work that will be added):
  18. Fitting the water blocks for the 2x ASUS GTX 980 STRIX graphics cards. With stock air coolers: Coolers removed - nice looking PCBs! With the water blocks fitted. I like the black/white combo.
