Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

TtD3sk_550.JPG

Back again!

I was invited for the Thermaltake 2016 CaseMOD Invitational Season 1, such an honor!
Normally I prefer a scratch build but with the Thermaltake P5 I just couldn't ignore my idea for it :)

Specs:

Intel Core i7-6700K
Asus Maximus VIII Formula
Asus Geforce GTX980 Strix (2x)
Asus ROG Swift PG348Q 34" 100Hz
Avexir Red Tesla 2666Mhz 16GB
Samsung 950 Pro 256GB M.2
Thermaltake Core P5 (2x)
Thermaltake  DPS G RGB 1250W Ti
Thermaltake Fully Liquidcooled

Enjoy!

Lets kick off with the first big update :)

1%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Unpacking .. Awesome!

2%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


The P5's

3%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


480 Rads

4%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Plenty of pump power.

5%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

6%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Reservoirs

7%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Lots of fans.

8%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Cpu and Strix blocks

9%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


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

10%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


It will be a mixture of PETG and nickelplated brass

11%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


All unpacked

12%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

13%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

14%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

15%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


So shiny!

16%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


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

17%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


First steps, mounting the fans.

18%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


And sleeving the pumps.

19%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Just trying to imagine myself how it would look.

20%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

21%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Sawing mounting rails for the desk

22%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


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

23%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


The idea

24%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


More next time :)

Followed as well, will most likely look good. One question though, are those fan controllers in the picture with all the fans?

 

Thanks guys!

I believe you can either buy the fans separately or as a 3-pack with controller

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

 

42%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


One arm should be able to hold 63kg, I'm using 4 of them.

 

43%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Not much left of the internals.

 

44%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG


Bottom shot.

 

45%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


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

 

46%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

47%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

48%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

51%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

52%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


More filing needed

 

53%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


And holes

 

54%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Also countersinking the PSU

 

55%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

56%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

57%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

58%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Sorry, I don't like stickers

 

59%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Rads also more inside

 

60%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


More holes, drilling and sanding.

 

61%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

More drilling, cutting, filing and sanding.

 

65%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


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

 

66%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Picked up the laminated glas panel for the Tt d3sk.

 

67%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Also picked up something awesome to complete this desk setup :)

 

68%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Back to the 'powerbar'

 

69%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


2 molex lines directly from PSU to the right side.

 

70%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Some wire management inside the P5

 

71%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Test

 

72%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

73%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


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

 

74%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


I just found out where my safety glasses were :)

 

75%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Few to go.

 

76%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Going to test the hardware without liquidcooling. Very excited!

 

77%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

78%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


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

So many pretty things I will never be able to afford. :( Mod looks good though, I love the floating look.

Time to mount the blocks!

 

80%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


I always love these :)

 

81%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


2 hours later.

 

82%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

83%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


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'

 

84%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Like this

 

85%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

86%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


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

 

87%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

88%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Done!

The loop. Finally! :)

First some pads underneath the GPU's

 

90%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


And the first fittings and pipe

 

91%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

92%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Works like a charm

 

93%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

94%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

95%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Should become something like this.

 

96%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


But still lots to do.

And another update!

 

Almost used all the fittings.

 

99%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


But glad some extra are on the way.

 

100%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


So first some more cable management.

 

101%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


So also the Displayport, keyboard and mouse cable.

 

102%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

103%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Done!

 

104%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Checking if everything still works.

 

105%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

106%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Also received a flowmeter to check out.

 

107%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Funny mirroring seen from bottom.

 

108%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


I guess white isn't too bad either.

Finally the last fittings also arrived.

 

110%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


So I could finish the last part of the loop.

 

111%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

112%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

113%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


And testing if everything still works .. 

 

114%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Time to fill it up

 

115%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Always exciting :)

 

116%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Not a single leak :D

 

117%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Next thing is also very exciting ... is the hardware still working?

 

118%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Awesome when you see on first boot "CPU Fan speed error detected"
That's good :)

 

119%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


And so the glass panel goes up

 

120%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Chair also fits perfectly :)
One last small update and then ... final pics!

Small extra before the final post.
Found some plexi from a previous project which will come to good use :)

 

122%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Sawing, sanding and polishing.

 

123%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


And done :)

Well, it's all actually here, all I did was using UV active acrylic and the lighting underneath does the rest :)

I want to thank everyone for following this project!
For me personally it was quite a challenge.
First of all because of the available free time I had next to my job and family.
But specially to create a 'Desk PC' below $400 of material. (2xP5 + tools + glass + mounting)
All this with standard tools like a jigsaw, drill, ironsaw, file and sandpaper.

 

So here's my contribution to the Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational 2016 Season 1

18%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

19%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


Finally I had 20 minutes to enjoy DOOM :)

 

20%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

21%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

22%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 


I tested all possible color combinations, my personal choice was Blue/Red, however I think many will like white too.

 

23%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

 

24%20%5b550xl3pTt%5d.JPG

ps. Should I make a little video too?
