    Hey all! I helped my bro with his move to a Thermaltake Core P3. He used Thermaltake's lit fittings and a Photon reservoir, but the rest of his books is pretty much LEDless... the effect is that only the watercooling components are lit and it's a pretty stopping look! What do you think? =)

    Every time I see this thread title...Coppermine and Tualatin pop in my head. :p
    Anyways...that's one gnarly-ass rig to be proud of for sure.

    I like the execution. Clean and compact. It all seems easy until you have to put it together.

    I just came here to say I feel like this thread title was Click Bait and I want my money back.

    However, as an owner of this case, I really need to get my Ryzen build in there one of these days..... :)

    Did he do the HG10 thing for the VRM cooling because he only had a small universal block laying around and didn't want to splurge on a new full-cover one?

    He originally did the HG10 thing with a Corsair AIO. He would have preferred a full-cover block but his 970, though it LOOKS like reference card and came with the crappy Nvidia-style blower, is not a reference card; no full-cover block exists. It was some kind of Best Buy monstrosity.

    I convinced him we could replace that Corsair AIO with a universal GPU block. There's a non-trivial amount of Dremel that's been done to that HG10 bracket. XD

    Yeah, a new PSU (or sleeving the cables of his existing one) is on the to-do list for sure.
