Hi, do your home-made cables still work ?

First post. First watercooled rig. First time overclocking. Second PC build for me. Thank you to all the contributors here from which I gleaned information both about P5 and also watercooling in general. It was a blast to learn and put this together. There is tons of inspiration in this thread! Looking at the pictures, I wish I had taken then without all of the cables hooked up...

Specs:

i7 6700K OC 4.8 Ghz at 1.32 V stable at max 65 C under stress testing
Asus Maximus Hero VIII
G.Skill TridentZ DDR4 3400 Mhz 16gb
Samsung 950 Pro 512gb Primary
Micron 1TB SSD for Steam/Origin
WD 750GB 7200 HDD Storage
EVGA GTX 1080 FTW
XSPC RX480 Radiator
EVGA G2 1000w PSU
Bitfenix G2 sleeved cables
Barrow pump, fittings, CPU block (Aliexpress)
Aigo RGB fans and LED strips with wifi/app controller (Aliexpress)
Old Android phone using Aida64 Extreme remote monitor

I loved the look of the EVGA FTW and so I wasn't tempted to watercool it. It also runs at a great OC at around 60 C on air.

My pipe runs are not efficient nor direct, but that was not my goal. I planned it to be visually unobstructive of the other components, and pleasing to my eye. I liked the look of the 90 degree fittings in other rigs, and didn't plan to do many bends myself, but in the end I had to put some in, and I am very happy with how they turned out. The pictures make some of the horizontal runs look a bit slanted, but in person it is not apparent.

Currently running distilled water. Plan to drain in a few months and possibly switch to Mayhem's pastel either white or blue.

OC'ing the CPU was alot of fun too, and I'm pleased with the result. I was able to boot to windows at 5 Ghz @ 1.44 V but it crashed on the first test run on Cinebench. I haven't gone back to try higher V Core at 5 GHZ. It passed stress testing at 4.9 @ 1.44 but the temps were 70-75 C max so I decided to drop back to the current OC 4.8 at 1.32 V for daily use.

Taped off 1.25" all around on the plexi-glass. I'm going to attempt to sand it for a "frosted" semi-opaque look so i can attach some LED strips around the perimeter to shine towards the components.

I actually like those tubing runs. A tittle different than what you normally see out there.

P5 really is a cute little case. Though I must say I had more fun building my own.








Thank you Protocase!!!

Dude, holy crap. I made an account here just to say this. You have a freaking smart phone display in your case? What the actual eff (in a good way).

I just bought my P5 and was doing a little research and came across this thread. Now I feel like I can't live up to these standards, lol.


I actually came to ask if anyone's fit a 580mm rad in this thing. I haven't looked at mine too closely yet to figure out if it could work.

480mm is the largest that will officially fit. 580mm would overhang on the top and bottom by a couple inches.
