Thermaltake P7 Core Build

This is my first PC build from scratch, my last PC build being back in 2000. Had to read up on lots as technology has moved along so much since then, not to mention learning new things such as tube bending etc

Future upgrades will be replacing the ASUS GTX1070Ti's I bought them for next to nothing as well as the EKWB waterblocks being on special at the time.
Would like to swap both out for a RTX Series in the near future.
Would also like to swap out the sleeved cables for some custom made CableMod sleeved cables.

All in all I enjoyed getting back into building my own PC again, along with it being different from the normal PC case.
Now that the build is all done, the next job is to mount it up on the wall above my desk.

Sadly the photos don't capture the RGB lighting very well because of the poor light in the study..
