TT Core P1 Desktop

First attempt at custom cooling. Super happy with how it turned out.

Please excuse the RGB - had to give it a try. While it's fun to play with, find that I prefer the cleaner look without lighting, as I suspect many do.

Took my time planning with both TinkerCAD and full-sized paper component mock-ups before I started purchasing components. Being able to see and tweak potential layouts ahead of time greatly helped achieve the end result I was looking for.

Custom brackets for PSU and pump. Nothing special there, but I hadn't worked with aluminum strips - took some doing with bends to get a fit I was happy with. Same with hardline tubing bends.

Generic waterblock, pump & acrylic res from Amazon - couldn't figure out how to add these components to build list. Same for accessories - generic eBay 16mm tube and fittings.

Moving on to a full sized P5 build next for my home gaming rig.
