Ditto.

Struggled with the Thermaltake cables. Bought an Extra one waited forever for it to arrive, just to plug both in and have issues.
When using just one cable everything seemed fine, when using both I experienced weird and wonderfull issues. Even disabling the PCIE slot from Mobo DIP switch did not resolve.

Got 2 x 3M PCIE Cables, arrived a week later and all problems disappeared.



When you think about it . . . .

It really is a sad state of affairs when you end up having to pay more for 2 cables that actually work, than you did to buy the P5 in the first place . . . .sozo.gif

First of all, Are you pulling air from your case or blowing air into it. Blowing hot air into the case could be causing your failures.

I changed the layout from the standard, in stead of Mounting the Radiator Flush against the case, I turned it 90 Degrees.
Configured my Fans to do a Push Pull Config, so that air flow is from Right to left when looking at the case from the glass panel.

This means air is flowing over Motherboard (good for Mobo Cooling), and I'm not blowing hot air into the back of the case where my HDD's are.

Secondly, I installed 2 x 140 M fans in the back, controlled their speed with a Corsair Commander Mini linked to my HDD temps.
The fan's rarely go above 600 RPM, and I have 6 x 3.5 " Drives, + 1 x 2.5" SSD crammed into the back.

My Drive Temps are between 35 deg C normal use, and 40 deg C when I hammer them.

I am so incredibly ready to start over on this build. This was my first hard tubing adventure and it very well may be my last. I think its soft tubing from here on out. You would think that such an open case would be easy but for someone who cant bend tubes, it was a nightmare. Plus, I'm ready to get a new MB and CPU and not run my VRMs in the loop.
The number one thing I've learned from everyone else' build and using this case is that the kitchen table simply will not do. In order to really put any effort in making a beautiful build is a dedicated work space. So in my defense, I have a 3 year old with sticky fingers while I assemble things quickly in the kitchen.

You all have such nice builds and it makes me envious.

Hi guys and gals

I don't own a P5 yet but I am thinking of getting one and basing it on an AMD Zen build once it launches. But I have a quick question. How do you guys handle dust with these builds? Are you all living in clinically clean environments? smile.gif I haven't seen one build utilize any sort of dust filter. Not even for the the PSU.

So what's the trick? Do you never have to clean the your rigs, or do you just go ham with bottled air every other day?biggrin.gif I know there are special vacuums for electronics that don't generate any static electricity, but I've never heard an enthusiast use one.

I've not noticed any build up of dust on any components after a few months, certainly not like if I'd left a conventional case for a while.

I guess this is due to not having a closed case intake fans or negative pressure sucking air in and depositing it around the inside.

I squirt my rads and gfx card intake once a week with compressed air, nothing else receives any dusting attention.

Here is a work in progress of my Core P5...
Custom painted white (including all brackets and parts inside)
Grommets painted in red using Plasti-Dip.
Vinyl wrapped Samsung SSD with Logo stickers added.
Optical Drive - white vinyl wrapped & painted (Sitting in GPU slot).
White cover over power supply cables (White Bitfenix Extensions & White MSI SATA cables)

I'll be adding custom water cooling using Bitspower PETG Tubing & Mayhems Red Pastel Coolant

Will update as build continues...

how are you going to install your GPU?

Decided to go with a single 480 rather than the 2 240s
