MILK on the Wall

Hey guys

I thought I would share my latest build with you :-)

After discovering the Core P5, I immidietly fell in love with the case and decided that this would be the base for my main gaming rig.

The color scheme will be BLACK, WHITE, and RED.

I am of course, using liquid cooling in the build :-)

Now on with it guitar.gif

The hardware:
  • CPU:Intel Core i7 2700K
  • MOBO:ASUS MAXIMUX V GENE
  • RAM:Corsair Vengeance 16 GB DDR3
  • GFX:EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti SC+ ACX 2.0+
  • SSD:SAMSUNG 850 EVO 250Gb
  • HDD:Wester Digital WD15EARS
  • PSU:Cooler Master V1000 PSU
  • CASE:Thermaltake Core P5

The cooling:
  • CPU:EK Supreme HF
  • GFX:EK FC Titan X
  • RAD:HW Labs Black Ice GTX 360
  • PUMP:Laing DDC 1T Plus 18W
  • RES:EK DDC X-RES top
  • FITTINGS:EK HDC
  • TUBE:EK PETG
  • FANS:Phobya Nano-2G
  • CONTROLLER:NZXT Sentry LX
  • COOLANT:Ice Dragon Cooling Nanofluid WHITE

I've chosen to show the unboxing of the case, since I had a hard time finding decent pictures when reading reviews, so I though some of you might find it interesting :-)

Unboxing the Core P5:











Feet and standoffs:



Back:



Front:



Inside, as seen from the back:



All this was crammed inside the case:



Manual:



Spacers, for the backside of the case, when wallmounting, these will of course be used:







Front again:



Mounting brackets for PSU:



Going to be used on this baby, the CM V1000:



Rubber washers, strips, screws, pc speaker etc:



Mounting the PSU:







Motherboard mounting screws, along with a top for easy installation:







If one should have any doubts:



Screws:



Would have used these, but unfortunately the threads aren't M3 :-(



Mobo mounted:



The feet for the case:



These were tucked inside:



Holes for aligning the feet to the case:



Unfortunately not all types of screwdrivers fit, in this case my Bacho with magnet feature.. Really was a ***** to mount without it, screws kept falling off and inside the feet :-/





Done:



3.5" mounting bays for harddrives:





Samsung going to the front line:



WD going under cover:



Mounting holes for SSD, but only for one:



Mounted, as seen from the back, the M3 screws used, were not included, got these from MDPC-X some time ago:



Front:



Mounting the WD:



GFX mounting brackets for vertical view/mounting. This is a REALLY nice feature IMO:



PCI-E extender:



Getting there:





GTX 980 Ti biggrin.gif



Fits perfectly:





As seen from below:



PCI brackets:



Now I don't really like the design of these, so am going to change them with some aluminum ones from Lian Li:



Just for fun, I tried to weigh them, to find out if there was any difference:



20 grams in total, well I guess everything counts when it's going on the wall biggrin.gif



Test mounting the fan controller and radiator:



Unpacking the standoffs for the acrylic window:



These puppies are HEAVY and Shiny biggrin.gif



The window, with protective film:



Mounted and ready to go, until the ordered LC parts arrive :-)



DDC Pump:



Sleeved:



Fans:



Sleeved:



X-Res top for DDC:



PETG tubing and some of my HDC fittings:





EK Anti-vibrating kit for DDC + mounting plate:





Mounted:





EK HDC, I'm still missing my T-splitters and fillport :cry:







Supreme HF, as is:



Mounted:



FC Titan X, D.I.Y. bending kit fra EK and Ice Dragon cooling nano fluid, MILKY WHITE of course biggrin.gif The liquid is just beautiful :jawdrop: well worth the money.



Unboxing the D.I.Y. kit, I've found that the silicon could have been longer. It would have made, bending more complex easier.



GFX ready to get stripped naked:



FC Titan X:



NUDE *.*:



Done:



Modded Supreme:



Color of all sides of the case changed to white:



Fans :-) Radiator moved to the top and controller to the bottom:



FC Titan whitened:



Same with PSU:



Last of my fittings have finally arrived:



Fillport:



Bending and mounting the PETG. I've found that 350° celsius was the most fitting heat for this :-)



All done with the tubing:



Fill her up laddy :blush:



Some pictures of the finished build:



























Next up, mounting it to the wall and final pics guitar.gif

I've added some LED backlighting to the case, just for fun :thumbsup:

A couple pics before i goes on the wall:





And we're up!



Testing different colors:

White:


Green:


Blue:
