    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

    Click here for the final photos!

    Lets kick off with the first big update

    Unpacking .. Awesome!

    The P5's

    480 Rads

    Plenty of pump power.



    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



    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

    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
