Absolutely love this build. Are those two tubes twisted around each other in a helix, in the reservoir? And do the tubes contain the coolant?

This will 100% get featured

Thanks for liking bro. The twisted helix tubes inside the reservoirs don't contain coolant.

Dude this thing is pretty awesome... It really should be a feature type build I think.... I'd take more pictures though. Close-ups and different angles would love to see this as a feature.

Hey, great build!

I just have a question regarding the fans.. I have the same ones you have.. and I can't get the fans to be registered on my motherboard (B450 Steel legend)

I'm using the 3in1 pack with a small included controller... I tried plugging the fans from the controller into the A-RGB header and the fans didn't register in the system

What's the solution to it? Thank you

  • 3 months ago
  • 0 points

I don't have the A-RGB controller because my MF120R fans were all bought in single pack.

Try to update the firmware of the A-RGB controller from here: https://www.coolermaster.com/downloads/#argb-led-small-controller-firmware

If you bought them a single pack... How did you connect them all together in the motherboard?.. as far as I know there's like average of 2 argb pins

Also thank you for the link

I'm using 2 units of 3rd party argb hubs like this, connected to argb headers on my mobo, argb effects controlled by aura sync software: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RPFJH5B/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_CljxEbH7KHJ4N

True, I feel a bit reluctant buying the real Royal as my existing Trident Z RGB have been serving me well especially in terms of OC capability. The 3rd party bars solved my problem :D

GPU: distributors don't manage to get good pricing due to low sales volume RAM: fast-speed kits esp b-dies are very limited

I'm usually not a huge fan of custom loops. I've personally never done a custom loop myself, but I've seen a lot where I find the loop is poorly planned (tubing and reservoirs in areas that obstruct other pieces and features). This one has completely changed my mind on custom loops. Looks awesome!

Hi.. very nice, just never liked those Barrow res. (personally).

5.2GHz @ 1.270v with memory at 4400, 1.50 V? usually with memory overcloked like that it's almost impossibile to keep Vcore voltage that low. i also bought 2 x 9900KS plus tested a third one and none of them were able to reach that voltage combo.. however i kept the best out of three. 32 gb (4x8) at 4400 cl18 it is a very good result.. i wouldn't say it is 1000% stable, 300%hci is not enough :) but yeah very good for that MB topology. i am currently working on a new build, i am using 2x360 (1 thick 60mm and 1 thick 45mm), what temps at 5.2 do you get ? and what stress test ? with this result, you should go for 5.3 daily.. your sample scale 100 Mhz from 5.1 to 5.2 with just 0.045V . Did you try LinX stress test? Thank you

  • 3 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks. 4400 @ 1.50v was tested at 5.0GHz. Those numbers I listed are just to show the scaling of my 9900KS. I have yet to run 5.2 on this machine, but 5.0GHz + 4400 maxed at 87C in 30C ambient, with RB v2.56 for 2 hours. 5.2 + 3200 on my open-air test bench without GPU in the same loop it maxed at 87C with 2x360mm rads. I did not try LinX.

  • 3 months ago

Thanks..

yes, "4400 @ 1.50v was tested at 5.0GHz." this more reasonable but still a very good result, trust me.. i am also pretty sure memory overclock will scale down a lot for you'r next 100 Mhz on the cpu :) i would bet 5.1 and 4133, and at 5.2 even lower, "supposing you have tight timings" without them you may reduce ram voltage accordingly and compensate. let me know.. i will add your info to my "KS" statistics. (for fun) cheers

On HCl I needed to increase vCore by 10mV from 1.225v to 1.235v in order to maintain stability at 5.2GHz CPU and 4400 @ 1.50v: https://pictr.com/images/2020/03/08/5K1SdQ.png

Don't feel like want to test it on RB v2.56 as the core temperatures will definitely shot up above 90c.

Thanks dude ! it is very good result, i just finished my new build.. i needed better cooling overall.. will let you know what i can achieve (if i have better data and you want to know). i have a point for you, as told it is a very good result.. i assume it is due to the fact you ram is not returing you a good performance despite the 4400 and cl 18, i have way better speeds and latency with just 4133. there are two things to consider when this happens.. certain combinations of ram settings will work bad despite numbers seems good or you just need to review the overclock, if you like performance and want the max do it.. with 4400 cl 18 you should have minimum 64 read, 64/65 write, 61/62 copy and 39 latency. this is another reason why you still stable but i repeat.. it's good, by doing what i told you, you'll gain performance at the cost of hours of testing and tries, because you wont be that stable on the edge.

You bought your cpu for 565$? But on the part list it say's you paid 1500$ for it... im confused so is your part list of how much the items are currently selling for? or how much you personally paid for them?

Nice build man. I got a question: I'm new to building. I was wondering why you use a 1500 W psu, because pcpartpicker says you'll only need about 600 W? Do you think a 760 W psu (got one already) would be enough for this kind of build?

Why didn't you use the built in Watercooled VRM heat sink on the board? Isn't that one of the main reasons to get this over the Hero version?

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Firstly Formula looks much sexier than the Hero. Secondly, for ease of removing the the CPU without needing to drain off the whole loop (pardon me for being lazy). Previously the CPU was 8700K while waiting for the 9900KS to be available in my country. Now only I'm thinking to use the built-in VRM block when I have free time, and might also upgrade the CPU block to the new EK-Quantum Magnitude.
