It's just 2 P5's, side by side with a couple bits of tubing between them . . .

Doesn't even have a single plexi front panel to cover both chassis giving a unifying look, just the 2 original ones with the top inner mounting rods removed

No particular engineering skills involved, or significant challenges to overcome, . . .

None of the usual details done to make it a pro looking build, like having the res mounted over the rad cutouts without a trim panel, no excising the cable management tabs that stick up, having the rad over the mobo's CPU cutout area with no trim panel . . and the list goes on . .

Just big, bright, and blingy without much real work to get it that way.

You bring up some interesting ideas, thank you.

Unfortunately for this build I was up against an extremely tight deadline for the CaseMOD Invitational - this made many customisations impossible within the timeframe.

I would dispute that there wasn't "much real work" - many many hours went into the project.



Deadlines are the bane of most custom builds, for sure . . .

It's all about getting the most bling the fastest, and if there's any time left, fill in what details you can . . .

As you might have guessed, I'm kind of a fan of stretch mods, but to me, the key to doing it successfully, is to have it look as factory stock / original design, as possible. . . . which might cause me to be more critical then the average enthusiast.

For what it is and the timeframe those events usually have, it is a clean build . . . thumb.gifthumb.gif

5m total? So buy an extra 3m?

Would it be unwise to have mixed tubing? The kit comes with primochill. I was thinking about getting the rest (3m) in mayhem ultra clear

I would get only Mayhems tubing as it's been proved much much better than Primoflex(it's also like 4 times cheaper).
Why you wanna get that kit? buy everything separately, it will cost similar or even cheaper as you want to add gpu to the loop.

I was I guess fool proofing for a noob. Since this is my first build I didn't want to cause many hiccups. Would you suggest I a pure custom build then?

I understand completely. I'm a huge stickler for details, and given unlimited time and resources I would have loved to do more. Cheers

definitely. much more fun and experience for you. it's not a big deal, once you start building you'll love it.

Alright I'll take a look into it. What would you suggest for tubing? Stick with soft tubing for my first build or jump straight into hard tubing?

P5 is a very easy case to work with, you're not restricted by anything so you can bend the tubes whichever shape and way you like. For the very first time however, soft will be easier and safer I think. You go now for soft tubing and you will want to change to hard at some point. You go hard for your first loop and you will want to change it to improve look of bends/ tube routes anyway.
go soft as it's cheaper and practice on that.
