Description

Was moving into a new place so figured my PC needed to be configured to cool even better since I will be living on the top floor!

Originally was planning to go with a vertical configuration but since this was my first time bending tubing I went with horizontal to make the runs a little easier.

Temperatures are quiet awesome, however if I run sub 900 RPM on all fans the GPU can work its way up to 50-52.

Happy to answer any questions!

feature worthy! nice one!

this looks really good how well can it run for several hours with turning off?

With my pump/fan curve the thing hardly works when not gaming.

I could leave it on pretty much indefinitely.

Hi, Can you syncronize rgb add front with aura? Or only chose color with front m|p panel?

Thx

I tried to synchronize the front but I could not get it to work. Unfortunately one of the LEDs however just R and the G B remain fine. Meaning some colors the LED remains off.

Was disappointed that it occurred so early on however I leave it in only blue anyway.

Very clean build! I am designing my own loop for a rebuild and found your design inspiring. I have one main question for you. I saw you had stand-off/extension fittings connecting the 90-degree elbows to the radiators in order to clear the fans mounted on top. What and where did you get these? I would very much like some for my build as well.

Check amazon for rotary adapters and extenders. These are bitspower

Hi there!

Great build. I have two questions if I may:

I wonder how well your pump can handle all this. Did you do some research on this before?

Another thing I wonder about is negative pressure in the case / dust suction when all fans blow outside. Do you see any dust building on rads?

Thanks a lot!

Regarding a D5 pump it should have no problem going through this many components. Especially given radiators are not very restrictive. I can run the D5 pump at about 3000 RPM and barely hear it while having a strong flow rate.

I have done my best to create dust filters on any large open vents (PCIe case slots), anything where dust can get suctioned through. I have not noticed any significant dust accumulating. I used to have a Corsair 500D that would have a push set up into the case and and a push set up out of the case. Providing pre-heated air for water cooling seems very counter-intuitive to me. Since these photos I have added a fan on the exhaust spot as an intake to try even out the pressure.

Great build and nice setup! I have a few questions regarding your setup. I have the same motherboard, 9900ks and 2080ti ftw3. I'm going to do a custom loop soon, do you recommend 2 or 3 rads? What are you current temps while gaming etc? I have the ek distro plate, but it has a ddc 3.1 and I'm thinking about getting the EKWB EK-Quantum Kinetic FLT 240 Pump/Reservoir Combo with a 3rd rad on the side instead. Also do you mind measuring the distance from your bottom top fan to the top of upper rad? I have a xe360 going on the bottom and a pe360 on the top and the you corsair rad dimensions are similar. I'm trying to see if the FLT 360 will fit but it will probably be too long. I like the look of the distro plate, but EK is offering one with a 3.2 ddc instead of the 3.1 version, so I'm kinda torn between my final cooling setup and overall cooling performance. Thanks!

I will do this measurement tonight. If you opt for those two radiators along with true static pressure fans I would expect similar performance. It all depends on noise in my opinion. Both have very similar cooling capacity, but the third radiator allows for quieter operation.

Which case do you plan on using?

Same case the Dynamic XL Black

hi, VERY good build, Did you face any problems with your ram?? other than the rgb

  • 4 months ago

No problems with the RAM, reached advertised speeds no problem.

Looks great!I'm doing a build similar to yours in the same case. Except I'm just putting 3 non rgb fans on the side mounts instead and have the rad holes on the same side for my top and bottom ones. I have a few questions.

How did you get your inlet to be on the left side of the CPU block? Is it hard to use the plug tool with the res mounted that high? Also how did you route the res cables? Through one of the rubber grommets I'm guessing.

Hello, I took apart the mount for the CPU block and flipped it. Very simple. I'm not sure what the plug tool is, res cables went through a grommet nearby.

The little yellow plug tool you use to unscrew the fill port lol. So does that mean you have the CPU blocks rgb cables on top instead?

  • 3 months ago

Nope still easy. Plus I used a Bitspower plug and they're pretty easy to unscrew with your fingers.

And to answer CPU block thing you're essentially flipping the acrylic piece inside of the mount. Therefore nothing changes but the block itself.

It's just four screws right? I thought you flip the plastic thing lol

Do you have any advice on how to get your bends to line up? I'm doing a 011 D XL build. But with the gpu vertically mounted

I would recommend buying a lot of tubing and keep working till you get it right.

EK has a bending tool that can be helpful.

It's funny you used bits power fittings when its bits power who make the fittings for corsairs hydro x line.

Very tidy looking though!

Yup! My local microcenter carries these fittings so it was convenient being able to buy a bunch and return what is not needed.
