Still waiting on one more fan to be delivered and I need to get a longer Cat 6 cable in black, tidy up the cables a bit but for now it's done. Really happy with how it looks, and how all my pieces ended up fitting.

When I eventually upgrade my gpu and cpu, I'm going to go ahead and do my first custom water loop with hard bends, but for now this is perfect.

Core i7-4790k
Corsair H110 v2
Corsair LP 16gb RAM
Corsair/MSI Seahawk 980Ti
Corsair RM 750x
240gb ssd
2TB WD Black


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)









One of the best AIO P's I've seen. Grab some cable combs though would tidy it up nicely, and can you go push/pull on the GPU rad to even out the fans?

EDIT: Like I said, that one fan your waiting to be delivered will fill out the rads nicely, haha.

Thanks!

I have the combs, just not looking forward to the process, lol, build took a bit longer than I wanted to tonight.

Definitely will be putting the fan I get tomorrow on the gpu rad.

EDIT:
New fan arrived and installed! I love these SP120 quiet edition fans. I have all of them set at a fixed 1250 rpm and the system is nearly silent.

Installed my EK coolstream 280 today and I had no problems installing it, perfect fot without modifying the P3.

So my question are, will it fit my 1070 card ( L = 285mm / 11.22" ) with radiator ( 60mm thick with fans ) and reservoir installed.
Just need to be sure, as my country doesnt have this not-satisfy-then-return policy.

This is Asus Strix with 305mm / 12" length, and it looks like will touch reservoir if installed. Maybe with slightly shorter card, it will fit ?

I can't say for sure, but the Core P5 is basically a larger version of the P3, and may better suit your needs.

Hello everyone! I just ordered the first round of parts for my first "from scratch" build in far too many years.

This is all that is left of my poor Phenom II X 6 build, and I am (not really, but yeah really) ashamed I waited this long to start from scratch.

Looking forward to rubbing elbows with fellow enthusiasts again! 😁

mad.gif SCREW THOSE DAMN PCIe RISER CABLES!!! mad.gif

I originally purchased the Thermaltake cable, but after reading all the horror stories, I ordered a different cable that had good reviews, before building my new rig. My system has only been running for a couple weeks and everything seemed to be running ok until yesterday. After hours of gaming I started noticing a serious slow down in FPS. Today I started looking into it by running some benchmarks and stress tests. Things immediately were not looking good.

On the 3DMark fire strike stress test I was seeing 9-20 FPS. While the test was running I decided to move the pci cable with my hand and I would see the FPS jump all around. At one spot, I was seeing between 70-90 fps, but once I let go of the cable it dropped back down. I spent a couple hours trying to get it working correctly and finally it just stopped working. The computer crashed and then I got the dreaded 3 beeps and d6 (no video device found) boot code on MB. Nothing I tried could bring it back. Then I remembered I had the Thermaltake cable I originally ordered. I swapped out the cables and it still wouldn't even boot (same d6 code). I was pissed. I figured I may have either fried my graphics card or the pci slot itself after moving the cable all around while the system was running (it did crash a number of times).

Finally I decided to ditch of the cable all together and reconfigure my rig with the graphics card plugged directly into the MB (no easy task with a custom hard line cooling loop). I drained my loop, reconfigured the graphics card and then put the cooling back together. I refilled the loop and let it bleed for a couple hours while checking for leaks. Yes, I should let it run for much longer before plugging everything in but i'm impatient and I really want to know if my new $4K rig will run again.

Press the button. BAM! Boots up without a problem. Run some benchmarks. HOLY CRAP!! My graphics benchmarks are much higher than I have ever seen. I hit 17636 (biggrin.gif) on the 3DMark fire strike benchmark that I originally was getting just under 13000. I was seeing > 110 fps on the tests were I was seeing 70-90 fps when moving the cable by hand.

Moral of the story. mad.gif SCREW THOSE DAMN PCIe RISER CABLES!!! Never again. mad.gif

I have never had faith in those pci-e riser cables, they have and always will be garbage. 2cents.gif

I was having problems with the riser cable that came with the p3. Computer wouldn't boot, couldn't game, games would crash, benchmarks would fail. I got the EZDIY cable from Amazon. Things seem to be working just as well as the same setup worked before this case, even played for 5 hours with no bugs. Hope it lasts, would hate to lose one of the reasons I bought the case for.

Build still looks sick
post #150 of 983
Having had the Thermaltake riser cable fail on me after only 2 weeks, and unable to purchase the EZDIY from Amazon I decided to bite the bullet and order one of these.
http://media.digikey.com/Photos/3M%20Photos/8KJ1-0727-0500.JPG
The cost is prohibitive, nearly the original cost of the case, but as Thermaltake Australia have yet to reply to my email after nearly 10 days, it appears they are not interested in fixing this problem. I believe the new cases sold do not have the cable included.
One of the main reasons I bought this case was to be able to show off my video card. If the 3m cable does not fix the problem It will probably be the last product I purchase from Thermaltake, as their after sales service seems to be very poor here in Australia.
