    eqeqeqe reacted to PaYFrog Customs in [Buildlog] Thermaltake Core x9 - "White Memory"   
    Dear PC enthusiasts, 
    today I want to introduce to you my second Thermaltake Core x9 build. This time I want to do something other than last time. I allready made some changes, so you can still see the concept.  


    The case will be seperated horizontaly. The lower part of the case will be holding two 480mm/60mm radiators. The new cover on each side of the case will hold one of them. Behind the front I will add an HDD/SSD cage, so you can mount them easily. The PSU will get a new position in the upper of the case. Mounted right behind the front, you got a great view on the PSU and the cables. Next to it I will mount the reservoir and go straight to the midplate into the lower section of the case. To get a good view all over the case I will install acrylic plates in the top and both sides. 

    Hope you like this build. 
    Stay tuned

    It was actually a lot more.. but yes it did sell out rather quickly.
    Can you PM me some details on the cable not lining up from Newegg?
    I can help with a replacement and more, just send me some details and a quick picture.

    Project Open Core: Thermaltake P5 Build (Introduction)  
    I have been using my current build for almost 5 years now, and it is time for an upgrade!  Not only are the components getting a bit long in the tooth, but I recently received my Oculus Rift VR Headset, and my system just wasn't ready to help me step into the world of virtual reality.   
    For this new build, will be using the Thermaltake Core P5, open air case.  This time around decided to go with hard acrylic tubing, so I did a 3D render in Google SketchUp to get a better idea of how things would be installed, and what kind of bends I will need to do.  
    This is going to be a bit different from by previous builds using the Corsair 800D, as there will not be much "modding" required to the case itself (we will see if that holds true).  I really like the design of the Core P5, and am looking forward to seeing what I can create using it.  
    I will be including some custom lighting as well, but still deciding which direction I want to go with the acrylic panels, and lighting source.  Testing both RGB LED light strips and EL Wire at the moment.  
    I will go into more detail regarding the components that will be used in a future post. Until then, check out this short video showing the 3D render from a few different angles.

    eqeqeqe reacted to Stephanisk in Core P5. Complete 3D model in solidworks   
    Hi everyone,
    I recently purchased a Core P5 case and i will be modding this case heavily, so first job was to make a highly accurate model of the case. So i did and i wanted to share this with everyone who feels like building a core P5 mod.

    I uploaded the files to Grabcad as here i am limited, but you can find it right here:
    I have worked a serious amount of hours on this model, so please if you use it and you write about it, please mention me somewhere, that would be highly appreciate.
    If you are going to use the model for milling on CNC than just check the alignment of holes of the pieces you already installed. I am quite confident i didnt miss something but you never know, i will be using this model anyhow to put it directly onto my CNC router.
    I will be adding a complete build log as i progress, cause now i can finally start building a real mod, the hard hours of  design are over
    Have fun with it.  Regards,

    Project Open Core: Hardware - Radiator & Fans

    My previous build I had 2 separate radiators, one for each loop.  A 360 for the CPU, MoBo, and RAM, and a 240 for the GPUs in Push/Pull configuration.  I have a few less waterblocks this go around, and will not be running SLI, so I opted for a single Alphacool NexXxoS 480 Radiator.  Look and feel is very nice, and the reviews I was able to find show that it performs really well.

    Also picked up an inexpensive “gasket†to go between the rad and fans.

    One thing I really like about this rad is that it has 6 inlets + 1 fill / bleed port at the top.  Tons of configuration options with that layout.  They also put a metal gaurd below the screw mounts so you don’t damage the radiator fins by going in too far.  That is something my last set of radiators did not have, and is a nice addition.  

    Comes with everything you need to get started, including port plugs and various lengths of fan and mounting screws.

    For the fans on this build, going with the Thermaltake Riing 120mm Blue LED Fans (x4).  These ones are specifically made to work with with radiators (static pressure), and the blue LED accent around the fan is a nice touch.  I saw at computex they just released an RGB version, but for now blue is fine.

    I did have to do some cable clean up to make this look nicer. Basically cut to length, sleeved and combined 2 pairs of cables to meet back up at the fan controller.  I didn’t want to have 4 separate cables running through the case so combined  them for a cleaner look.  

    Verified with ASUS that the fan headers on the MAXIMUS Formula VIII support 1A per header.  Tested these fans and even at peak, none generated more than 160mA.  Combining 4 fans on one header is still well below the max supported current, and will allow for easier fan control.

    Although not really a fan controller, the 4 fans meet back up at a Phobya 4Pin PWM to 4x 4Pin Fan Splitter.  They basically act as 1 fan now, and I will use the  ASUS AI Suite Software to control rotation and noise based on temperature curves.

    Picture of all 4 installed and spinning up with a nice blue glow. I kind of wish the blue were a bit more towards the green side of the color scale for a lighter blue, as these look a bit more purple.  Will have to play with the RGB setting on rest of the LEDs on the system, and will find something that works for everything.

    Hello all! After a year and change with my V51 Build (photos in V51 Owners Forum), I decided to go big w/ the WP100 chassis.
    Breaking down the build (as is):
    Thermaltake WP100 Chassis
    Intel i7-6800k
    EVGA x99 Classifed
    128GB Corsair Vengeance LPX @3k
    OCZ 256GB M.2 SSD
    4x EVGA Hydro Copper GTX 980
    EVGA 4-Way SLI Pro Bridge, Version 2
    Toshiba OCZ 256GB M.2 SSD
    Western Digital 500GB Velociraptor SATA III HD
    EVGA T2 1600w PSU
    Thermaltake PR22+D5 w/ Silent Pump/Reservoir
    2x Thermaltake RL280 Heat Exchanger
    5x Thermaltake Riing RGB 140mm Fans
    4x Thermaltake Riing RGB 120mm Fans *NOTE: One of the fans isn't aligned properly & clips the side of the fan case; sounds terrible. Tt RMA inprog.
    6x Thermaltake Lumi RGB LED Strips
    3x Swiftech 41-65mm Male-to-Male Lok-Seal Fittings
    10x Thermaltake Pacific 90-Degree Elbow Fitting
    11x Thermaltake Pacific 3/4OD Compression Fittings
    2x Thermaltake Pacific 30mm Male-to-Female Fittings
    In the near future I plan to change things up a bit & add some additional hardware. An Asus Blu-Ray R/W optical drive, a multi.-card reader, a Thermaltake PR2U Pump/Reservoir (when available in the US), a Tt RL360 radiator for up top, and some additional fans.
    The build was straightforward; lots of little screws, but nothing too difficult. I thought the instruction manual was quite handy & easy to follow. I chose not to install the hard drive racks b/c I don't use that many; and I like the look of the big open chassis. I also need to pick up additional cords/controllers for the Lumi's & Riings fans so I can improve on cable management.

    ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. For every business we should maintain an ERP solution. That will help us to make everything in a smooth way. Now days every organization started to use the ERP solutions and software for make their business in a better level. This will make their work easier and also save time. We know there are various processes that are essential to running a business. Through an ERP software we can make every steps include in those software. We should start learning about how to manage an ERP solution. For example you were planning to develop an ERP Software for a flower shop. Before start the developments we should get the complete process happens in that flower store. Learn the activities thoroughly and invent this by including order management, accounting, human resources, customer relationship management etc. The ERP solution will integrate all these work in a single system. This leads to save our time and also human work. So we can reduce the risk in our business with gaining profit for our investments. There may mistakes occurs from human being. But if you start using ERP systems everything will goes in a smooth way without any struggles.

    eqeqeqe reacted to Erik Bmods in Project: Green Peace. Thermaltake A71 Chaser LCS feat. TT Bigwater850GT   
    Hey guys. I was asked by thermaltake to do a mod in a case they have had on the market for awhile. The Thermaltake A71 Chaser LCS. They really wanted me to feature the double bay AIO watercooling system that comes with the case. Now me being me I couldn't just do a regular build with the bay res where it normally goes. So doing some custom mods to spruce up the look of the case and AIO. 

    Now this isn't your regular AIO like a corsair h100i or something along those lines. This case comes with a fully custom loop with quick disconnects for easy draining. However I am not the biggest fan of quick disconnects. But that is the beauty of this unit. You can fully customize the loop with hard tubing if you like......which I totally intend to do. But I will still be incorporating the whole entire unit because the disconnects are very handy for easy draining and repair if needed. But I will be hiding them as they are not the prettiest things IMO.

    Now this isn't the first case that  I would choose if were up to me, but I was pleasantly surprised with the full tower. It is for sure marketed more toward the gamer with its aggressive look (which I like a more subdued look in my cases) than a pretty living room PC. The build quality is crazy the side panles are the strongest steel out of any thermaltake chassis I have built in before. - See more at: http://techcity.tv/forum/discussion/comment/1319#Comment_1319

    eqeqeqe reacted to Snypehunter in Tower 900 Build   
    I have been researching a new system build for several weeks.. I was first enamored with the Core P5; but it has so few storage options, that my P5 will have to wait.
    This will be more of an evolution than a complete build.
    My Tower 900 is arriving tomorrow.  I have already built a sturdy pedestal/alter for it to live on.  To start with, I plan on simply moving my existing rig into the Tower 900 after a really detailed cleaning with CRC.  The final build will include a complete motherboard/CPU/Memory/GPU upgrade.  I am hoping to use this forum to gather advice from the universe to help me decide how to progress.  This will be my first liquid cooled build; though I have been building and modding PC's since 1988.  This will also be my first showcase PC.  All previous builds were purely utilitarian and recycled parts from the previous build.
    The Plan:
            Stage 1 - Case Prep and migration of Old Faithful.
                         1. Obtain Tower from shipper who has held it hostage during the holidays only a few miles from me
                         2. Carefully label and dissect Old Faithful.  C drive is a RAID 0, so a perfect reassembly is essential.
                         3. Carefully clean all parts with compressed air, alcohol and CRC Contact Cleaner (seems recommended by the internet enthusiasts for difficult to clean parts and states it is safe for PC boards).
                         4. Perform appropriate rites to the Computer Gods, sacrifice a chicken, 2 slices of pizza; and complete the rites with a shower of mentos and cola.
                         5. Reassemble.
              Stage 2 - Fans and Lights (early in the build BC cheaper and an easier sell to the wife)
                        1. Install fans: 7 x 140 for the 2 radiators.  I'll use a smaller radiator for the GPU loop when it goes in)
                        2. 2x140 high-pressure fans in the back and 2x140 high-volume in the top
                        3. 1x140 high-pressure fan for displayed HD cage.
                        4. Install colored LED light
                        5. Install UV lights
                        6. Install light/fan controller
               Stage 3 - CPU Loop - (this may shift if a windfall allows me to upgrade the guts)
                        1. Install CPU radiator. I wanted an EKWB. Which is the largest I can accommodate?
                        2. install pump/res combo (I think it will look better)
                        3. I'd like to install flow monitors and temperature.  Suggestions?  something cool to look at?
                        4. Install EKWB water-block.  Hopefully they make one for this old chip.  This will get replaced when the MB/CPU upgrade happens.
                        5. Install flexible hose and fittings.  This will be replaced with hard tube at the CPU/MB upgrade
                        6. What is the proper ritual?  What do I sacrifice, aside from my credit card?
                        7. Fill, leak test and burp.
    What is currently moving over: I7-3930k, Asus P9X79 Deluxe, MSI NVidia 970, 32GB memory, 2SSD (RAID for C:), 1 Blu-ray (I wish I could move both),  and 6 hard drives.
    Questions:  I am stuck with Fans and lighting.  So far, I am leaning towards the NZXT Hue+ for fans, and RGB lights.  I cannot get any good suggestions for ambient UV.  I'd like the tubes and such to "glow".  Another concept was to use colored fittings; however, that means, if I ever want to change colors, I need change fittings.
    So far, the only things that are set in this build is the case.  Please chime in.  I'd like to hear from you all so I don't have to learn by spending a fortune.
    Thanks for the help all!

    Update - Just got my wireless card today.

    I should also eventually get another 200mm fan (Perhaps a Tt Luna 20) to replace the stock one I accidentally wrecked when testing how much the front panel affects the fans' airflow. I might also be tempted to get some 140mm fans to replace the 120mm ones (Which I might use in other PCs).
    The SSD I ordered seems to be lost in transit so I requested a refund and decided to buy it later since I got a GT 730 for $57 to tide me over a bit until then.

    eqeqeqe reacted to Prox in TT Premium RIING Software Controlled fans. Product FAIL?   
    We have bought in total 5 packs of 3 combo fans and have had nothing but problems. This is a short review of the product line titled TT Premium RIING 12 cm software controlled fans. It doesn't mean it won't work for you - but we feel the product-line is a FAILURE, and several posts on this forum indicate the same thing for multiple users.
    1) two (2) USB controlling boxes had to be replaced. They never indicated being alive (fans only run red  and device manager does not pickup that controller). Quality control?
    2) one (1) fan had to be replaced as it missed a anti-vibration rubber-foot. Quality control?
    3) Software freezes up after everything from minutes to hours. This is a big CAUTION for everyone with watercooling. If fans lockup at high RPM - you'll be fine - except fans sound loud. If however, you lockup at 350-400 RPM - then your righ will go overheated. By the time you find out - your loop will be running water at 60 degrees or more!!!
    4) BSOD - Blue Screen of Death. We have linked this directly to the drivers used in the RIIING fans. When no software is installed - everything works fine. When drivers are installed - BSOD will appear 1-4 times per day. 
    5) software was and still is not on par with a PREMIUM product. 
    - Software is CPU based even though it can collect info on other hardware sensors (GPU). NO possibility to change this.
    - Throttling up and down is directly linked to CPU and this creates a very ear-sored experience. There is no delay in throttling up so if CPU hits 60 degrees fans run at 1300 RPM. A few seconds later - CPU hits 30 and fans go down to 350 RPM. This happens continously during load. We have a watercooled loop.
    - no setting of RGB in software
    - on 4K monitor - numerical values and text is all distorted and overlaps eachother. RPM numericals outside the circle it is supposed to be in.
    - Software auto-starts in full mode, which is a flaw - but also good as you may want to minimize the software and ralize it has frozen.
    There are many small things that are a nuisance, like skins etc, but overall fact is that product is NOT A PREMIUM product. It feels cheap, does not work as promised and has major flaws in both product performance, design and quality. We bought these products for placing in high-end rigs and have had two customers return their items, as well as our own demo-rig not working properly.
    We understand a PLUS version is out in less than a year. We feel cheated as these are so called PREMIUM products.
    We have gone through version 1.00 all the way up to 2.1.0 and it is still flawed. It may work for others, but not for us and our customers. Over the several months of testing, we have found different software versions on different Thermaltake pages, seems the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.
    We have obviously been in contact with Thermaltake and received replacement parts, but we have now officially written a letter containing the same information for a RMA to reveive a PLUS RIING if they belive this will sort out the problem, or for a refund. BUT - we have not heard anything from thermaltake.
    We have other Thermaltake Premium products, but we feel this is a very, very poor execution of  a product line.

    - I7 6770K 
    - ASUS ROG Formula VIII
    - 64GB Dominator 3000

    I love this case. Best case TT have made in a long time IMHO, though the other Cores are very good too for various reasons.
    Quick list of hardware components:
    1) Intel Core I7 5820K CPU
    2) Asrock X99 Extreme3 motherboard
    3) Corsair Vengeance Blue DDR4-2666mhz 16GB (4x4GB DIMMS) low profile RAM
    4) Dual Sapphire Tri-X R9 290X 8GB Graphics Adapters with original backplates
    5) Crucial MX1000 500GB SSD
    6) WD Green WD20NPVX 2TB 2.5" mechanical HD
    7) Corsair RM 1000 power supply
    8) Corsair sleeved blue modular cables (to be swapped later for custom sleeved)
    Water cooling components:
    1) Swiftech Apogee XL-C clear acrylic water block with 10(!!!!) 5mm white LEDS
    2) Dual EK WB R9 290X Vapor-X plexi/nickel water blocks
    3) Alphacool UT60 360mm radiator (top)
    4) Swiftech MCR320-XP 360mm radiator (front)
    5) Darkside 160mm tube res with bundled DDC PWM pump
    6) Triple Corsair SP120 High performance PWM fans for the Alphacool in push exhausting out the top
    7) Triple Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-14 fans in front
    8) EK HD 10/12mm acrylic tubing bent with Monsoon 3/8-1/2" Mandrel set
    9) 10 Bitspower BP-BSEML black spakle 10/12mm fittings
    1 Darkside 8" lighting strip installed in the back
    I named the system Penumbra-V for the lighting gradation that happens from back-to-front, and the "V" for Thermaltake V31 case.
    Here's a crappy cell phone pic. I'll get better ones soon, but the potlight that was above it burned out and made it darker than it should have been.
    Feedback/criticisms are welcome, but I thought I'd post here as I used the V31 as the basis for this build. Temperatures are great, and I don't think I could find another compact mid-tower case that could hold all this raddage!
