For the monster custom gaming PC, Project p5yche, three 480 mm radiators will be fitted to one of the Thermaltake Core P5 cases. Here is a mock fit of the radiator using the existing mountings, to determine placement of the other two radiators.
Here are the templates for the radiators all in place and ready for drilling. The circled holes will be drilled, and crossed holes will not (due to obstructions or gaps). There are still plenty of attachment points for each radiator to give a solid mount.
I finished drilling the mounting holes for the radiators.
Next I moved on to the points where the two Core P5s would attach to each other. Here are the pieces marked up:
The holes on the edge will be fixed with rivets. The little screws attach the edge of the case to a corner bracket inside. Since the screw heads would prevent the cases sitting flush together, they will be removed. I originally planned to bolt through the holes on both cases to maintain the strength in the corner, but the holes don’t actually line up. So four new holes within the corner bracket area will be drilled and tapped.
Here are the finished case edges:
Now the cases are ready for clean-up and painting…
