For some reason my specific box must have had MUCH more than most others, to the point it was noticeable and troublesome.

I'm sure this wasn't intended and perhaps could be fixed/prevented with better quality control or some (improved?) cleaning method before being boxed. It's my assumption that obviously very few people must be affected or aware of this so it's likely a rare/isolated issue. I don't know how much of a safety or health concern these slivers/fibers are, but obviously it's unwanted. I'm assuming they're made of acrylic, which would be better than glass.

I know I said I'd get pictures but none of them turned out and I got sick of trying so I didn't. I'd suggest just for extra peace of mind that others who are unboxing a P5 to take a light after opening the box and looking around inside to see if they have all these slivers of acrylic too.

On a positive note, I hosed my panel down and it's in my system all cleaned and I'm loving the case. I'd still recommend it and look forward to starting my custom loop in a couple weeks!

Thanks for the help to bring this up and I am glad we got time to talk about it.

Really do appreciate your feedback and information.

I love this case. My first time working with hard tubing. Most of your builds make it look easy lol, ive had some trouble getting everything cut and bent to proper length so everything is parallel and lined up correctly. That said, i am having the riser issues as well. I tried 2 original cables, and then got two of them replaced by mike, and also another i have bought. No dice with any of them. I had a SLI 680 setup previously, and upgraded to a 1070 thinking that it was just the sli causing the issues. I just ordered another cable from liheat48 on ebay, like someone previously mentioned i believe. Anyway, heres my build. I have since corrected the graphics card being crooked, but i plan on redoing the tubing once again, either once i resolve the riser issues, or if i have to resort to plugging the card into the mobo. Anyway, here it is.

hi guys.

ok this will sound like some idiot/noob question.
apologies for that frown.gif
I just got all my watercooling parts from bitspower.
I have read that it is a good idea to flush your radiator with almost boiled distilled water (i'll leave the vinegar option out)
Other than the radiator, what other parts need rinsing/ flushing?

Really only the radiators to get the flux paste and stuff like that from manufacturing out, but it doesn't hurt to flush everything while your at it. What said the water should be almost boiling, I have never seen that before? Maybe someone else can answer that.

Ok.So i'll have to connect all the watercooling parts and flush it with distilled water?
I was browsing through the forum and saw this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/782199/flushing-a-new-rad.
Since most people here have much more experience in watercooling than I do, though i would ask

That thread actually has all the answers you need. The only things that need flushed really are the rads (most important) and then the blocks if you feel like it.

Hi all.

I've just built up a system using this case. Its' pretty tame compared to most the builds in here.

Any good options for mounting more than 1 SSD? I've mounted one on the front up the top to the right of the motherboard, but had to put the other in the back. I'd rather have it all on show.

What model SSD's. I have an idea but need to see mounting options.
