Love this. Simple. Fully water cooled. Clean all around.
AIOs use a stronger coolant and typically won’t break down under their warranty period. Some perform better than others and you may find a lemon even amongst the best brand. You can still replicate that kind of longevity or even surpass it with a custom loop if you use the right parts and coolant.
Air cooling is always going to be less prone to failure but nowadays AIOs from reputable brands are well designed. Not much to worry about
Does it hit the 3600mhz speed on Ryzen?
Nice work. Does the ram hit expected speeds?
Custom loops require more maintenance typically. Depending on the watercooling parts you use. For instance, clear soft tubing tends to leech plasticizer into the loop, which eventually may clog the blocks. Also, clear acrylic blocks can degrade over time. Dyes, pastel coolants, and other fancy additives can also gunk up blocks over time. This system using a type of tubing that will never leech, and all acetal blocks that are are stable chemically as you can get. It also only uses Mayhem clear coolant, so no need to worry about that going bad, staining blocks, or clogging anything.
Sorry about the lack of prices. They were all over the place as I had some used that I sold to the client for a deal, and other parts I got on sale. If I kept the prices as is, they would auto-update, which isnt always accurate.
Yes it does. (This is my other account)
Great idea using the T fitting to have both a fill port and return from the radiator into the reservoir. Lovely work all around
Hey where did you find this motherboard in stock?
Thank you. One more question: do you think the ekwb asrock x399 monoblock would fit with the slim rad and ml120 fans up top? Im concerned there wouldnt be room for the outlet...
this is the part: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-fb-asrock-x399-rgb-monoblock-nickel
Strange that the xmp doesn't just automatically work when the ram is rated at 3600mhz from the manufacturer.
I can't pick out any part incompatibilities and I was under the impression that the 8700k could run ram at 3600mhz, so maybe you just got a bad part.
Nice. Thanks for that information.
I think you may solve that RAM speed issue by running it in dual channel. Check your motherboard for how they recommend to sit your ram, but I know they shouldnt be together like that unless you're using four dimms
Great work. I am interested in building a NAS myself. I have a leftover 6700k (w. 32gb ram) I was going to use for it, do you think that CPU/RAM combo is too underpowered?
Nice work. PM me if you would like to order some custom sleeved wires!
How was the overclocking process on that 9700k? 5.1ghz is very good! Congrats on the system, great work.
Any thoughts on the ASRock Fatal1ty x399?
Does your RAM run at the 3200mhz its advertised for on this Threadripper CPU?
How does that RAM run? I want to get this kit for an upcoming 2950x project and I want to know if this RAM is good with threadripper
Who makes that digital flow meter
This is great.
Really nice work. I have about the same clearance for an MSI 980ti in front of a slim radiator in my Define Mini. Now I wish I got the Meshify Mini!
great photos and a great pc
Looks great. Love the keyboard too how you mixed the stock and double shot caps.
I would recommend having the tube come out of the top radiator and into the top VRM port, which would then exit into the CPU block.
edit: just read what you said in the description. thats a bummer!
Love the dual bay reservoirs. Looks great
Nice work. I'm about to build in a nano s (keep delaying...) and I wish I had a shorter PCB for the GPU. I really like how you have the DDC mounted. I think a clear acrylic cap or stop fitting on the front of the reservoir would look cool.
Could you walk me through that TG side panel mod?
Did you do the case mods yourself? TG and front panel look great and solve the airflow issue
Is that a Zotac 1080 ti mini?
What temperature is your CPU running at under load at 4.8 or 5ghz? Did you delid the processor?
thanks. I'll be using mayhems white pastel and a mix of pink, purple, red, and blue dyes to fine tune the color.
Are those cable extensions or fully modular cables?
Did you make those cables yourself? Looks to me like MDPC sleeving, possibly carbon BTI and vivid violet. Correct me if I'm wrong. I just built a set of cables with carbon bti and vivid violet sleeving and I want to match the pastel coolant to the vivid violet. What kind of coolant/dyes are you using?
What did you use for the cable clips on the backside?
Amazing. Great call on the vented front panel. The wires are lovely. Nice bending job. You absolutely didn't miss a step
I've asked you a million questions already but this is a great PC...
Anyway, how do you feel about the airflow at the front of the case with the fans mounted as you have them? I'm now considering thin 13mm fans and mounting them like you have it.
Love it. Cables look great. I'm in the process of building in the Nano S and I want to get an SFX PSU so I can have more room to fit my DDC pump under the GPU.
Is this the adapter you used to make your PSU compatible? Thanks for the tip
Nice! What GPU brace is that? It looks very sturdy.
How do you like the motherboard? Can you turn the red leds off?
I’m trying to figure out which itx z370 to purchase. This one is highly recommended. Just wanted to make sure.
Nice look with the Aqueduct external radiator.
Really sublime work all around.
What clock did you reach on the CPU?
Love it. I have a few questions:
What power supply are you using?
How well does the EK Asus z270i mono block fit on the Asus z370i?
What temps are you getting?
How do you like that Asus PG27AQ? Is 27 in too small for 4k?
I've used a 32 inch 4k monitor before but I want g sync
I have the pin out diagram for my PSU but I cannot really figure it out.... I'm sure I can get it eventually
Thanks for the info
Amazing modding work.
This should be featured
What kind of information did you consult before making your own cables? I am about to make my first set and I understand how to do pretty much everything except for the most important step, which is getting the pin-out right. If you have any tips they would be greatly appreciated.
Excellent build too!
How do you like the motherboard?
A custom loop would look amazing
