I checked out your build and hardware wise (the important part) you are the one doing the shiting on sir ;) Amazing and overkill as any decent hobby should be. Great work! Love the amount of water you manged to stack in there. The fittings between pump and rad was also awesome. Very clean. Only thing separating us is that you need to put some water thru that awesome GPU ;) Not because it makes a difference, but because it looks awesome! You also managed to get the PSU wiring clean without a PSU shroud. tumbs up

My additional rads makes a very limited impact on temps I believe. You have plenty of rad space. I run my fans around 600rpm during idle. Running CPU/GPU at load with stress test tool the fans run at 1000-1050rpm.

The MEG is buildzoid approved for threadripper 2 with respect to VRM design. Not sure what you mean with "better with higher temps". I think you need link that video so it get the context

The Creation product is superior with respect to features and quality. Maybe the best in the market. The BIOS however...

I'm obviously not the guy you want answering this. But as you might have guessed I have become completely addicted to custom watercooling. It has brought a new excitement to PC building that I have loved since forever. Something that I expect most of us here on this platform shares. And when you love something it quickly becomes a hobby.. and once it's a hobby your wallet suddenly becomes less worried about necessity or sensibility than with other matters you deem as less fun. So a case like this that will be loved by a few and bought by even less... Is it about what makes sense or what is worth it? Or is all of this in the eye of the beholder based on their personal priorities or interest? To me it's worth it. To you it's not... And hell... I agree with your point of view. But I can't argue the sensibility of my pastime activity that brings me allot of joy :-)

Nice :)

I like to stay updated on GPU. But I'm happy to skip av CPU generation or two. Also if you decide to go the custom watercooling route. Make sure you do it for the looks and the silence. Don't think it's worth it for the performance :)

The case is silly expensive. Was lucky and got it used. It's quite impressive once it arrives in the awesome flight case. Just the transport case have to cost 100$.

It hasn't failed me performance or stability wise. Biggest issue I would say is BIOS usability. Even as someone that has been overclocking since forever... I really struggle to familiarize myself with the layout and understand what the different features do. I did a build with a semi cheap Asus strix board and I have to say that it's a dream to work with with respect to BIOS. And the SW tools that come with it actually feel useful compared to the others. Next time it will be Asus... But then again.. how often are you messing around in the BIOS? The MSI HW has been flawless in every aspect.

Feature! Wow.. Pretty big deal for me :) Not sure I'm worthy considering the other featured builds. Anyways.. very appreciated. Thanks for the comments and the up-votes. How can I explain why this is a big deal to the wife....and also without showing her the prices of the parts.... ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Awesome. You will love it. The flight case, the accessories.. everything about the case gives a very premium feel. It was a joy to the normal cardboard box that you are used to see. Post your build and ask questions if you have any. Thanks for the nice comment!

Thanks for the helpfully tip. One question: the bend goes further than a couple of mm... I would say almost a cm. Also do you bend at the mark to reach your target? Also do you set the mark with respect to center of the intended destination? Lots of questions... Appreciate the help.

You are correct sir. The ML120 LED are the ones at the very bottom. They look very good. The ones above are the HD120. They are veeeery bright. Thank you very much for the nice comment.

Good. Nice keys. I like the angled "gaming" keys. Never owned the k70 or the higher classes of Corsair keyboards. Solid braided cables and sturdy USB connectors. Not sure what this lacks to be honest. Lots of RGB. With iCue you can sync all Corsair LEDs.

With respect to "Warm water": Read this first or watch this.

As stated on the EKWB site the flow is split into three. So if we simplify it further it enters with the same "cold" water and exists with the same "warm" water.

So in my loop it looks kinda like this

Ouch... I'm very happy I wasn't able to acquire VUE before the reports from the users arrived. But is the filter able to catch the VUE particles? It did very little to catch the nano particles from my pastel disaster. Any pictures for what the filter catches?

In my setup the same water enters GPU1, GPU2 and CPU at the same time :)

I think EK explains this better than I can so I will link to their material:

Parallel and Serial flow

Does Loop Order Matter?

I actually had to remove the filter from the loop due to it being too restrictive for my setup. It has two valve openings of 5.43 mm that I think is the cause of the restriction. My tube internal diameter is 10mm. Once removed the water reached the CPU section of the parallel loop with allot more ease without cranking the pumps to high. You could argue that the blocks are also restrictive... but I can attest that the filter is very restrictive compared to the internal tubing diameter and that I got better flow (and seemingly head pressure) after removing it. A shame because I really liked the design and the feature to remove filter without draining.

Apparently this filter was first designed for 1/8" connectors. And that is why you are having trouble finding a connector for the LED port. Because that is still 1/8". So I had to purchase a Bitspower adapter (1/8"BSP > 1/4"BSP) and put a normal 1/4" LED into that again.

Hope this helps!

Was unsure of what size(2mm vs 3mm++) to pick :). But amount and everything else was quite easy. Thought see through was the safest with respect to design. Found a nice UK provider that had quick delivery plus some lucky guessing :)

I have never heard about anyone being limited at 1080p. The one example I have is from a test where the guy ran with Titan XP SLI at 4K Surround(11520x2160). And even then he only got it in certain games/applications.

+

Specifically for your card

For the majority of games, there is no significant performance difference between x16 3.0 and x8 3.0 (and x16 2.0, >which offers the same bandwidth). The average difference is only 1%, which you'd never notice. Even such >bandwidth-restricted scenario as x16 1.1 or x8 2.0, offered by seriously old motherboards, only saw a small difference >of around 5%. The same goes for x4 3.0, which is the bandwidth offered by the x4 slots on some recent motherboards.

If I were you I would worry about getting games to run properly with SLI rather than tweaking a potential 3-4 fps more out with a x16 config.

Impossible to comment on without further details. Please list GPU's, CPU & RAM details and test setup. And also resolution that benchmark was run on. All of this and potentially more is highly relevant in determining a bootleneck.

But does x8 3.0 vs x16 3.0 make any difference in real life?

Inconsequential Differences & Margins for Error These numbers are close enough in some instances – like the GTA V 58.3 vs. 58 FPS >output – that they're effectively within margin of test error and do not definitively >show a performance gap. When a reasonable performance gap is shown – like the >~1% difference in Metro: Last Light numbers – it is imperceptible to the user but >measurable with our tools. And we do mean imperceptible – we're talking 96FPS vs. >95FPS, for Metro.

Also as we are running SLI you will also limited by the slowest card anyway?

And yes the fan is for everything else but the GPU. Because the AIO only cools the GPU i believe.

It does. But as there is a fan on the card also I wanted to give it some breading room. Why would you want them right next to each other?

Ambient temp? As in my room temp? Roughly 22 degrees. I don't notice a big difference in card temperature. Ambient shouldn't make a bigger difference for a hybrid cooler from a normal cooler? Idle temp is usually around 28-31, and load temp is 48-55 depending on if you read from the top or bottom card.

NP :)

The 4 & 8 slot is the last slots to be used. So if you are able to fill them the last picture would be with all slots consumed :) They probably didn't include that top save space in the manual.

On the X99 boards the ram is supposed to be placed in certain slots based on how many ram modules you use. It's not a matter of preference :) The recommended location will be in the user manual.

I believe you are on your own if your liquid cooling leaks. Unless there is a registered issue with the cooler you use.. but I believe that will be on a case by case question. The Predator series actually had a scenario like this

Kinda strange question. Why do you ask? :)

I belive the 6700K is 4 core.. but 8 threads. But good question... I don't believe there is many good reasons to go for a 6800k over a 6700K for a gamer. I just wanted it ;-)
