Description

UPDATE: Temperatures have improved!!!! While playing AC Odyssey CPU has temps highs of 80s but stays in high 60s and low 70s and the gpu doesnt go higher than 56C after 5 hours of constant play. While playing World War Z CPU temps max out at 68C and Gpu stays in the low 50s. I will be adding a Corsair Commander Pro so i can adjust just the radiator fans at higher speeds, if that doesnt work i will replace the fans to high static pressure fans like a Notuca fan. Stay Tuned for the Modded Front panel - Coming Soon.

Took a month to finish the entire build. Cable management was tight but definitely doable. This is my first water cool build i ever done. The Only problems im having are cooling, my cpu under load gets up to 68-71C and the GPU is around 69C-71C i dont know that is too high or what. When looking at an angle i can see the water block of the GPU isn't completely full. its like 7/8th full. Is this a problem? Im planning on a design cut out for the front panel so there could be more airflow out of the case. I get about a 10C degree difference with the front panel off so i think a cut out would help. Any advice would be great thanks!!

Definitely, the Gpu block not being full is a huge issue, your coolant just isn’t gonna flow as well. I would try to drain ALL the air it of your loop. If you can’t try to move your res so it’s the top of your build so the air gets up there.

Thanks for the tip! i might just place the Computer sideways maybe that will help the gpu fill up.

Nice job! These components are very hot. The 9700k and the 2080ti have cooling issues and i by the looks only one 240? or 280? radiator? My builds i have a hard time bleeding the air out so i have to twist it to the side, front, side and back many times. Sometimes upside down (Dont let air into the pump from the res tho or you'll start from square one). I really like these small foot print builds.

Yeah one Slim 240 Rad i was also debating whether to put a slim 120mm rad on the bottom but I dont know how much that would help.

In the next few months im going to cut out openings in the front panel for more airflow.

I was hoping it'd be free, heh. My basement has air conditioning :p

I do think it was worth the effort and time, it looks amazing.

Mini ITX custom loops scare the living daylights out of me

Yes, leakage and also the idea of building something so delicate inside a cramped space like a Thin Mini ITX case like that.

Can you add all the other water cooling components to the build list?

Thanks!! just wait til i make the front panel cut out design, it will definitely add more beauty to it. To be honest it wasnt even that bad to build in it, i only struggled with one fitting.
