BlackRack

Rack mounted Thermaltake Core P3 with custom loop.

Short history on why I made this mod:
I have most of my computers and hardware mounted in a rack in my mancave/office but it is impossible to find a nice looking rack mounted case that can house a custom loop with enough rads to cool a RTX 3090 and the AMD 5900x. So I started testing different cases and found that the Thermaltake Core P3 actually fits really good on a shelf in my rack, it is good to point out that the case is wider than a normal 19" computer case and needs to sit within 19" mounting rails (see the pictures for more details).

I wanted to build something that looks like it belongs in my rack but not just a "normal" case standing on a shelf. So I started drawing different concepts in SketchUp until I found a design that I liked and that would work well for me.

Sent my drawings to get all the mods CNC milled and then I painted them matt black.
