    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

    Lets kick off with the first big update
     

     
     
    Unpacking .. Awesome!
     

     
     
    The P5's
     

     
     
    480 Rads
     

     
     
    Plenty of pump power.
     

     

     
     
    Reservoirs
     

     
     
    Lots of fans.
     

     
     
    Cpu and Strix blocks
     

     
     
    Not sure yet if and how much I will use it, but a bending kit
     

     
     
    It will be a mixture of PETG and nickelplated brass
     

     
     
    All unpacked
     

     

     

     

     
     
    So shiny!
     

     
     
    The gaming gear! Off course needed to complete a desk.
     

     
     
    First steps, mounting the fans.
     

     
     
    And sleeving the pumps.
     

     
     
    Just trying to imagine myself how it would look.
     

     

     
     
    Sawing mounting rails for the desk
     

     
     
    Will be using regular shelve holders to mount the desk to the wall
     

     
     
    The idea
     

     
     
    More next time

    The hardware!
     

     
     
    Best looking mainbaord ever.
     

     
     
    The power.
     

     
     
    Avexir memory
     

     
     
    Lovely ssd.
     

     
     
    GPU power.
     

     
     
    More power
     

     
     
    Some shots together.
     

     

     

     

     
     
    Cleaned up the modcave where it's all going to happen.
     

     
    Time for some modding!

    Thanks bud!
     
    I planned the whole weekend for measuring, cutting, drilling, filing, sanding etc
     

     

     

     

     
     
    Ahh yes .. what I've been waiting for!
     

     
     
    One arm should be able to hold 63kg.
     

     
     
    Not much left of the internals.
     

     
     
    Bottom shot
     

     
     
    So lets cut! (tried the dremel once again .. screw that)
     

     

     

     

     
     
    Cover plate for right side of the desk where normally the mainboard goes
     

     

     

     
     
    More filing needed
     

     
     
    And holes
     

     
     
    Also countersinking the PSU
     

     

     

     

     
     
    Sorry, I don't like stickers ^^
     

     
     
    Rads also more inside
     

     
     
    More holes, drilling and sanding.
     

     
     
    Just had to test the fans

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

     
     
    Picked up the laminated glas panel for the Tt d3sk.
     

     
     
    Also picked up something awesome to complete this desk setup
     

     
     
    Back to the 'powerbar'
     

     
     
    2 molex lines directly from PSU to the right side.
     

     
     
    Some wire management inside the P5
     

     
     
    Test
     

     

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

     
     
    I just found out where my safety glasses were
     

     
     
    Few to go.
     

     
     
    Going to test the hardware without liquidcooling. Very excited!
     

     

     
     
    I never thought about the ROG logo from the Asus PG348 ... normally it shines ON your desk ... 
    I like the effect!

    Time to mount the blocks!
     

     
     
    I always love these
     

     
     
    2 hours later.
     

     

     
     
    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'
     

     
     
    Like this
     

     

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

     

     
     
    Done!

    The loop. Finally!
     
    First some pads underneath the GPU's
     

     
     
    And the first fittings and pipe
     

     

     
     
    Works like a charm
     

     

     

     
     
    Should become something like this.
     

     
     
    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
