Very clean! Always liked white as well!

thanks, they took lots of sanding after the 3d print which was very good quality. also I had 5 made one for the ps too.

Do you have a link for this cable?

My solution to get all 8 fans to sync on one controller was to split the 5th pin wire in a loop to each pin then one wire back to the 5th pin on the TT controller. This worked well in my testing, but I was really wanting to sync Arua as well plus add more RGB LED's. I ordered a wireless kit Im looking to use to light up the back of the case against the wall, not sure I can get all of them to sync but wouldn't mind trying.

Hello all!

I have a question,

I can't see if anyone has tried but I am building a Dual Xeon build, and really love this case but I have to know if it is possible to fit a SSI-EEB motherboard into this case. I would really appreciate any knowledge as to fitting the board into the case.

Many thanks!

The case was made for ATX so the cable grommets are spaced accordingly. EEB is 3 inches wider than ATX, if I am not mistaken, so all the grommets will be covered and then you would have to drill the extra EEB standoffs. Seems like a pain but it is possible.

Little Update . . . .


So I spent a lot more time in the work shop than on the Harley again this weekend, (yes, I know I need an intervention) . . . but I did make progress on the P5 . . .


My McMaster order came in, so I had the big piece of 1/2" acrylic and all the aluminum bits I needed to make the perimeter for the addressable LED strip lighting and support for the thick acrylic front panel that everything will mount on.

The LED carrier frame is made from 3/4 X 3/4 angle, perfectly mitered at the corners so it fits the chassis outline just inside the radius of the bend of the steel, or about 0.015" all the way around.

The main support for the acrylic front panel is 3/16" thick by 3" wide, hard aluminum, mounted to the bottom of the chassis, and secured by the 8 screws that hold the feet to the chassis where there are reinforced pieces in the interior corners.

While the LED strip carrier doesn't weigh much, even with all the LED strips, and can be easily supported by the chassis, the thick acrylic front panel is heavy as hell, and that's before the rad, PSU, res, pumps, and everything else gets mounted on it, so it needs to be supported externally of the chassis.

I changed up the cable management cutouts a bit to 2 narrower slots for the mobo cabling and added 4 small pass thrus for the rad fans wiring.

The cutouts in the mirror backpanel will also be added in the top acrylic panel, but I haven't cut them yet, as I still need to put the mobo standoffs in the top panel, and mount the PSU brackets.

Took me a while to come up with a perfect way to have the interior LEDS strip carrier be removable and easy to set up as a separate module, so I used some aluminum tubing at the ends of the flat bar that slides over standoffs that set it in place.

I hope to get it to my tig guy this week, so for now it's just secured to the tubings with some blue tape, as well as where the vertical and horizontal pieces connect.

I still need to add 1 more piece of flat up along he mobo side of the cable management slots, so it mirrors the piece on the rad side of the slots.

I'll light the cable management slots area separately from the addressable LED strip run.


With all the cool parts comes the gotcha's . . . . The height off the chassis to the top of the thick acrylic panel, that everything actually mounts on is about 1 3/8", which means the 4 rods that support the outer acrylic are effectively made about 1 1/4" shorter, so the PCIe cage that supports the GPUs horizontally sticks out too far for the outer plexi panel.

To solve the problem I cut out 2 slots worth of width and made it a 6 slot, where it had originally been an 8 slot. . . . no good reason for it to have been 8 slots in the first place anyway.

Just got to have it welded now.


Anyway . . some pics below . .

The LED strip perimeter assembly while mocking up the internal carrier pieces:





With the mirror back-panel installed and the internal carrier taped together, the 1/2" thick front acrylic panel is also on:





Standing up on its feet:





And a few with the outer panel in place:

You can see that I have a 3 to 4mm gap between the LED strip frame and the back of the acrylic front panel . .

This is to give some convection cooling for the light box area . . should be somewhat over 500 LEDS total










And the PCIe cage modded to 6 slots:

Kept it SLi / XFire capable, of course . .

My GPU (EVGA 1080 SC) and EK Waterblock arrived, so wanted to post a quick update to my build.

Decided after getting some good feedback to modify the blackout and add RBG LED strips instead of the 2 x 3mm LEDs to give a more even light across the acrylic, instead of just 2 bright spots.



Even without adding the carbon fiber vinyl, this is looking pretty sweet.



I personally think it looks even better this way, and the glow around the edge matches what I am trying to achieve with my case in this build. Now that I have RGB LEDs Installed, I can also tweak things to make sure I have a uniform color throughout the entire build (which I have not done yet).

beautiful block with nice pastel in it. No to carbon vinyl!
I like that ambient light on your case, did you use some acrylic sheet to cover the whole case face?

Yes I modified a 24inx24in acrylic panel to glow around the edges of the case and components. Here is the build log:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1601083/project-open-core-liquid-p5-hardline-tubing-illuminated-system-panel-vr-ready/0_20

I go into a lot of detail about how I made the panel, and got the edge lighting effects.
