The Kraken

I was inspired to make a black and white build, and decided to try something different and make a reservoir using a Kraken rum bottle. It would suit the black and white build plus using some black liquid would give off the image of it being cooled using rum.

Picking the case was a long and difficult task but finally decided to go with the Thermaltake Core P5, this would display the custom hard line loop I'm planning along with the reservoir if I can get it to work properly. Sadly my core p5 was missing a pump bracket in the box and got in touch with Mike from Thermaltake and he really helped me out! I ended up receiving two of the brackets so I worked out how to include both into this build.

This shall be my first build posted on here, along with this will be my first time using hard line tubing. Set myself a rather fun challenge but hopefully it shall turn out well.
