Thermaletake P3 Titanium (TTP3-T)

Part list:
https://au.pcpartpicker.com/b/8h4qqs



Autodesk workstation & 1440p gaming. Longed to do a P3, it was an absolute dream to build on and made water cooling as easy as possible. If I were to do it again, I'd go with a better motherboard and forgo the colour scheme slightly.

Testing so far has proved decent temperatures -- GPU 25c/52c | CPU 28c/60c (ambient 21.5c), fan speed around 900RPM is whisper quiet. Credit to the EVGA HC block, it is a fantastic product with all the thermal pads pre-applied.

Mistakes made were: not wiring up the motherboard before piping up the GPU - made it very difficult to do after the GPU was installed. Changed the GPU - CPU connection, reducing number of fittings by one. I also bought too many fittings & didn't end up using the rotary anywhere in the system. My approach was to keep the runs as short as possible & reduce the number of fittings that could cause potential leaks. The EKWB leak testing kit proved to be worth the money spent. Pumping the system up to 0.5bar (50kPa) found a weakened O-ring at the temperature sensor. I replaced it and pressure held at 0.5bar for over a day before removing.
