Thermaltake Core P5 Owners' Club - Page 296

post #2951 of 3139
Hi Guys,

Total newbie here. I recently had an issue with a local PC repair guy who charged an obscene amount for his time and actually made my PC worse - story for another day.

I reflected on what happened, and the truth is my total lack of knowledge of how a PC works was fundamentally to blame. So I resolved to make my own computer, so that nobody could take advantage of me again.

That being said, I decided to try and build a water cooled, decent spec, PC and have been studying youtube and following build log's etc.

I decided on P5 as the case I want to work on, I have my shopping basket ready with all the parts I'll need, but before I go for it, I wanted to reach out and make sure that I am not totally delusional and that someone who 2 weeks ago didn't know the difference between a CPU and PSU could actually do this....

Thanks for the time and sage advice!

Are you going to use an All-in-one (AIO) cooling loop or a custom?

I'm part way through my first build, and decided to build after getting frustrated that Apple won't update their dedicated desktops. Using the P5 has been really fun since it lays everything out in front of you. I'm working on the wiring, and the thought of powering it up is intimidating so I hope to have an experienced friend over to check it out first.

I will do a custom loop - might as well go all the way.
I think I am more intimidated about the 'boot' than the build, not saying that I am not intimidated by the build, but its what comes after that I need to research more. How long has it taken you to get this far and are you doing a custom loop? Thanks for replying
post #2954 of 3139
Yep custom loop. The loop is proving to be the challenging part. The advantage we have these days are all the guides on youtube, but they don't quite convey the amount of time it takes to research, plan, and assemble a loop when you haven't done one before. It's taken longer than I expected, and also the loop is taking more money than expected. I think a softtube setup is more straightforward than a hardline since hardline requires bending tubes and more fittings. Still, I'm excited to get it all put together.

Did you know anything about this stuff before?
post #2956 of 3139
Nope, first build. I guess to sum up, it's taken longer and has been more expensive than I first expected mainly due to building a hardline loop. (fittings cost adds up, and it's hard to know exactly how many you need when you start) But I'm learning alot.

Long time lurker, first time poster. I wanted to post my build and hope to get some recommendations on what to go with.

Intel 7700k Delidded
MSI Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon
MSI GTX 1070 Seahawk (Nickle)
Corsair 16GB 3000mhz
Corsair HX 1050w PSU
Corsair SP120 (x4)
XSPC Raystorm Block (Copper)
Thermaltake Pacific PR22(Pump & Res)
Thermaltake RL480 (Rad)

Soon to be added
Hardline pipes
Primochill Revolver fittings
Primochill Vue coolant
Samsung M.2 Drive
Wall mounted

I was told by a member on the Primochill discord to ditch the rad due to it being Aluminum and on the website stating "Anti-Corrosion Aluminum Alloy " which essentially should be the same thing but considering replacing it with a copper one from XSPC or Primochill dose anyone have any thoughts on this? I really want the new Primochill Vue coolant but having to change out the rad might seem extreme just to replace but maybe someone here will convince me otherwise. Thanks all.

I am trying to create a "community driven" build with the Core P5. If anyone is interested in posting ideas for the build you can find the post here http://www.overclock.net/t/1638675/community-driven-build

Yup, it be very wise to change to any copper rads, due to galvanic corrosion between aluminium & copper or nickel plated copper. Nickel, Brass & Copper is fine with each other as long the coolant or DI water is mixed with anti corrosion which slow down the process to a crawl. Corrosion still happens though but not as fast with aluminium mixed with copper. Hope the elders correct me if im wrong.tongue.gif:p
