Pump is set to 50% and the fans are set to 30%
EKWB ZMT tubing.
These are CableMod Pro series cables. I think I got them from Amazon.
Idles around 28-30c. Higher during the summer since I don't have A/C in my house.
Here's the order summary (it was easier than typing everything out lol):
The only extra was the taller res, so that added to that total. I changed that after my initial loop was built.
Same here. This was the first soft tubing I've used. I've only used hard tubing in the past.
Negative. I have two nvme drives in here now, and both are running fine without issue. One is also my boot drive.
The power button works fine for me. I don't need to hold it. Mine did not come with a reset line though. I had this case before and I think in my last one it did come with a reset line.
Yeah, it was a celebratory drink for sure.
Under load it's around 45c.
I would say so, that radiator is a 280mm x 45mm radiator, so it's pretty beefy. A thinner AIO radiator should have no problems fitting up there.
Glenfiddich 25 actually.
No issues with clearance. The mounts for the radiator are offset from the motherboard enough that even tall ram fits with no issues.
I have a mild overclock on them. Somewhere around +200/+200. I forget. It's been a bit since I've messed around with overclocking them since I'm maxed out on my monitor in 99% of the games I play. GTA V has some issues holding 85-90fps on ultra in some situations, but other than that game, 100fps all day on every game I play. I think I remember having problems going much higher than those increases anyway. Firestrike would crash out.
I don't know how to edit the parts list here to change that. And I haven't tried yet. I will update when I get a chance to start getting into the overclocking aspect of things.
Not glass, it's bitspower crystal link tubing.
Also, getting featured here seems impossible lol. I would love to be featured though!
If this is a reference to Ryzen, I'm good. I am building a second computer in a few months for my living room/entertainment room for media. That will most likely use ryzen.
I thought the same thing. I went a bit overboard with the fittings and tubing. I could have probably cut 300 bucks off of the cost of the build by bypassing the angled fittings for bends. You'll own something like this if you want it bad enough.
Thanks. It has made a huge transition from being haphazardly thrown together when I first got it built just to see if it boots, to where it is now.
hahaha, got me! I decided to go the route of hardline after seeing Jayz videos one night when I was drinking.
Bitspower Dual Enhance Multi-Link Adapter Fitting, 90° Angle, Matte Black, 4-pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WS5BTA0/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apap_6RtlkghpkFKdl
Whoops. Haha. Two mistakes in the build. Not sure how two mice ended up in there though.
I selected the wrong board by mistake. Should be a Maximus VIII Hero. Not a IX.
Thanks to both!
Thanks! Not too shabby for my first attempt at a custom loop.
Thanks! I like the look of fittings in place of bends. It's easier to keep a consistent look that way.
lol frightening? Temps for the CPU hover around 24c, and both GPU's at idle at around 30c, under load are about 40c.
Cable management could use a bit of work, but right now i'm just done messing with it.
Added another of the monitor with it.
The only problem is the radiators block most of the light in the case. That was the only spot that I could find that allowed any light to come through.
Thanks a lot. This is my first attempt at a custom loop. Give me a few minutes and I'll take some more photos. They're with a two year old Moto X so I can't say they'll be the highest quality haha.
Thanks! I used Bitspower Crystal Link tubing.
Nope, my audio has been pretty solid. I've had a really odd USB connect and disconnect sound that comes and goes every now and then when nothing is being removed or inserted, but other than that it's pretty solid.
Added pics of the current state of my build. I wasn't sure how to edit my parts list, but I have a hue+ and a grid v2 from nzxt for fan control and lighting control.
I'm confused as to the point of this comment.
I definitely will when time allows.
I ended up replacing the stock coolers with two NZXT G10 brackets so that's no longer an issue.
It's a three slot.
hahaha, definitely a typo. Either that or I'm a serious baller.
Thanks! I upgraded some more. Changed cases and then also picked up a Predator x34.
