    Thank you weasel. Between work and IRL stuff it took me 1 week to finished it. It felt like a month tho. :p

    It came out a bit different than how I had imagined it the first time but I think it came out nice.

    I really like the Sentry Mesh fan controller's position.

    P.S: But the real build would be around summer or a bit after. It would be one of a kind Core P5 mod. Never been done. :D

    I will try uploading more photos from all directions.

    One small note tho. As much as I like the Core P5's uniqueness, its has almost 0 airflow going on, especially compared to my previous HAF-X case.

    So people should expect an increase in their temps, mostly under load conditions. I think its around 5-8'C for the CPU(based on my loop) and about +10-15'C for the GPU.

    Those are my preliminary findings so don't blame anyone or anything. More testing is needed. But its not a big issue imo.

    And also the GPU should be installed 1 or 2 slot further back because under load the GPU its "choking" in its own hot exhaust air when the front panel is installed. I have seen +15'C with it on.

    Other than the obvious airflow issues(not complaining, its an open case of course), the case is a dream! :thumbup:

    Very cool! Why not put an acrylic water block on that GPU though?

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for your compliments , it's a nice reward for my work ;)


    @demented brave : I found that the cooler of the 980 TI HOF fit very well with this black & white theme , so I left the original, but I think integrate a waterblock in the loop in few weeks ;)

    I like the look of the components and watercooling work for sure, but I really don't care for this open thermaltake chassis.. just looks stupid imo.

    Nice work though, no doubt about it!
