Thermaltake Core P5 Owners' Club - Page 127

post #1261 of 3173
I bought it from Titan Rig (Amazon). $130 for the waterblock and $30 for the backplate. The packaging was great as always. The waterblock included LED (white), washers, bolts, screws, thermal pads, thermal paste, and detailed instructions. The backplate included screws, washers, thermal pads, and detailed instructions. The quality of both items are great (heavy and durable). I was not able to keep my EVGA Z170 I/O cover because of the backplate. The seven ports made installation easy. Now my GTX 1080 FE runs silently at low temperatures. I reached 2114Mhz clock speed and 5557MHz memory speed at 43 degrees Celsius. I spent about 30 minutes on the installation and about an hour bending PETG tubes.

So, I ended up becoming a bit to busy to plan out my actual loop. But for now, I have the exact parts list as well as a beginning to the watercooling parts list.

CPU: i7-6700k
Motherboard: Asus Maximus VIII Formula
Ram: 32GB of GeIL SUPER LUCE (4x8)
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNova P2 850W
Graphics Card: Gigabyte 6 GB XTreme
Storage: Samsung 950 Pro M.2 (256gb) and Evo 850 2.5 SSD (1tb)
Case: Core P5

Watercooling Parts:
CPU Block: EK-Supremacy Evo
Pump/Res Combo: XSPC D5 Ph​oton 270 R​eservoir /​ Pump Comb​o
Radiator: EK-Coolstream XE 480
Fans: 4x Riing Fans (Either Blue or RGB)
Hard Tubing
Various fittings (haven't really looked into them yet)
Blue coolant (haven't looked into this much yet either)

Just ordered the case and graphics card. Didn't know how long the graphics card would only be $419 so I wanted to get it as early as possible. Ended up going with 980Ti since it will still be powerful for a while and was a much cheaper option. Plus I loved the look and it matched the Riing fans tongue.gif

Can't wait to have the money for the rest of the parts. It will be a few weeks of purchasing before I can get started but can't wait to see how this goes!

But, I've been looking at parts more today and yeah I'm starting to move away from the thermaltake kit as it seems it might have parts that aren't as high quality in construction as others are. I'm really liking EKWB and they were my first company I was looking at as they seem very high quality.

Are there any suggestions to certain parts from certain companies you guys would suggest? Fittings are a big one that seem to be priced very differently from company to company and I don't know if that directly correlates to quality or if it's more of a "pay for the brand" type thing.

Also @Touge180SX: Where did you buy your Strix 1080 and the waterblock? Everywhere I look it says Preorder for both items mad.gif... I live in the US if that matters at all lol.

Toxic, saw you picked up a 980Ti which is still an amazing option, especially for the price. I am active duty Navy stationed in Japan but got extremely lucky and got one of the few Strix 1080's that popped up on Newegg and then my EK block from Performance PC's the first day they received there order.

As for fitting, I am using EK ACF rotaries (the are EOL but was lucky to still find them here in Japan, I love them!) and Barrow fittings which for the price and looks, are amazing! I cannot recommend them enough! Check out ModMyMods.com for Barrow fittings if you are interested as Joe is awesome to work with and his shipping is second to none! thumb.gif

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll check that stuff out (: and yeah I figured since I'm not VR or 4K I might as well stick with cheaper 980tis for now since they still get amazing FPS in 1440p tongue.gif

I took a lot of inspiration from a lot of builds on this thread. They're all so good!! Purple Core made me love the custom plate hiding the PSU. So, I designed my own(: I plan to cut out the words and have a blue transparent plastic sheet behind the cut out and add some leds to make it glow.

Hello dear owners: Could someone who owns the AIO bracket tell me whether it would make it possible to mount two rads right next to one another?

Some progress updates on my build. Just waiting for 2 more parts so I can mount my MB and finish up the tubing. Then finish up all the wiring. thumb.gif

Thank you! Man I still digging those shrouds on your build! I ended up ordering some fan grills inspired by you thumb.gif one of my other videos shows the one I got, still need to finish them up!

So much to do so little time, I am going to be sad when I do finish though, it is seriously a lot of fun!
