@moRReus
Thanks for the suggestion. I won't lie, when I first built it with all that tubing I couldn't stand it but didn't have the time or the gumption to drain the loop and start again. Second time around I was going to get some angled fittings. But truth be told, I kinda just up and decided to redo the loop with what I had on hand on a whim one night after having a few drinks (I was bored). I really wanted to go hardline from the get go but also never built a custom loop before, so I figured I should pace myself and go with something more forgiving for my first watercooling build. It sort of worked out in my favour, once that riser cable failed, I was easily able to adjust my video card's position without having to drain anything. Moving forward though, I really want to do hardline, and I can see me using more angled fittings to avoid bending the PETG where ever I can since I am still a noob at this. lol

After several P1 & P3 builds I haven't always wanted to use all of the fan/hard drive mounting space on the right side of the case. Not wanting to leave it unfinished I ran across these and gave them a try. bgears Fan Filter 120mm. They come in a two-pack (paid $3.49 at Fry's).

You get a fan grill, filter and front cover (snaps on). It's not metal (would be nice) but It think it dresses up the opening to a large degree.

Ramping up the fans will make it run cooler, and I recommend getting Afterburner so you can manually control the fans like here - what I set for my RX 580 (it barely makes any noise at 30% for me):



But I think to make it break in faster, try running Furmark for a while - keep an eye on the temperatures though just in case, as it makes the card run at 100% and gets hot very quickly.
I can't guarantee that it'll make it quieter using that for every card, but that and just using the GPU normally with games or other things seemed to make it quieter for my card.

That looks really good bangs; I never thought an oversized radiator would look good in the P3 but that 480 rad fits in nicely with the trees on the front vinyl. Nicely done with the CAD set up too.

This is what I made and have planned to print

(A Commodore 64 schematic crossed with some simple mountains, and a bit of self-made background noise)

I read every post in this thread while planning this build and it would not have worked without all the information I found. So, first, THANK YOU ALL. I LOVE YOU. I edited & just finished uploading the entire build process (~30GB of video, ~6h runtime) to hopefully help anyone who's going to try anything as remotely insane as this build on their own. Here is the link to that.

Here are some pics for you :]












I wish I had a better camera, but I don't. Here's the FULL build component and price list: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/bjWD4D

The build videos I linked above cover every aspect of the build, so please watch if you're interested in any way and have the time. It was NOT an easy build so... I really hope it helps future maniacs like me.

Specs:


Core components:
CASE Thermaltake Core P3 Snow Edition
PSU SeaSonic 1000W Gold
MOBO ASRock Taichi x399
CPU AMD Threadripper 1950x OC 4.0Ghz
GPU AMD Radeon Vega Frontier Edition (Air)
RAM G.Skill Trident Z 4x8GB 3200 14 14 14
SSD Samsung 500GB 960 EVO NVMe

Cooling stuff:
EK CPU & GPU water blocks
EK Vardar fans & 480mm XE radiator
Alphacool Eisbecher D5 250mm Reservoir & D5 pump combo
Primochill flex tubing
Barrow fittings

I finally, after editing and uploading all that madness, have a chance to start using this fat beast. I just wanted to say thanks again for everyone's contributions here because this would not have been possible without it. If you have any questions, please ask and I'll do my best to reply ASAP.

I LOVE YOU.

Wohhhh, great build, looks fantastic and I love the large radiator!!! What size tubing are you using?

I bought a 32.0 card to activate mine. My mobo is older but i wanted functionality.

I have the Thermaltake P3 and I wanted to know if anyone has successfully updated the front USB ports. I was looking to ditch the 2 USB 2.0 ports and add 2 USB 3.1-c ports in their place but they look soldered to the PCB. Any guidance or ideas are welcomed.

thanks!

Thanks dude! Your artwork is fire. There was so much more room for artistic planning that I just skipped. I was really, really focused on the technicalities. Had no idea if it would work physically. The art considerations were just goofy ****, to me. Your artwork will look BASASS. Cheers!
