Build Log: Green Core - Thermaltake Core P5

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen many Core P5 builds, so I decided to share my build log here.  I am a big fan of this case.  It's the first one I have found that will support the water cooling parts I wanted to use for a wall mountable PC (Namely the 480 Radiator). I hope I can do this system justice.  Unfortunately, I will not be using hardline tubing.  Besides, just about every build of this case I have seem has been with hardline.  I am going with a black, white, and green color scheme for this build.  

 

Here is the Core components I will be using  ;)

 

Case:  Thermaltake Core P5

 

Proc:  Intel i7 4770k

 

MB:  Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87 (Green Core, not many other options out there for green)

 

RAM:  32 GB (4 x 8GB) Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3

 

VC:  NVIDIA GTX 780 TI

Motherboard, Sleeving, PSU, and the 480 rad - Shot of the motherboard with the Swiftech CPU water block.  Matches my build pretty well I think.

Pretty happy with the way the sleeving turned out.  Not too much sleeving left to do ;)

The 8 pin ATX cable was short by about 50-60 mm. I had to make an extension to make it work.  Luckily the case is designed to hide cabling <_<

Reservoir, Pump, and Drain port - I have the Res and Pump Mounted.  This was the first actual mod to the case.  The case comes with a mount for the Thermaltake pump, but it does not work with this pump.  I had so use a different mount and created new mounting points for the bracket. Also, fixed CPU block! Added a drain port for the system.  That was a tough one. I had about 1mm of play.  Not much room for a mistake.

Water Tested and Running!!

Still trying to figure out how to take better pictures.  I will be taking some more on Sunday.  I'll try to take some outside.  My final pictures will be when I wallmount it.  Should I be using a different background? I am wondering if it is being washed out.  Let me know what you guys think. :D
