With 'not about the looks' I meant that it doesn't have to be all shiny, anodized fittings, colored coolant etc. but it should not look like it's made of Goodwill found parts.

I'd have to ask if they have any ETA on X299 taichi monoblocks, don't think so as they didn't have an X99 one either.

There's nothing wrong with ek compression fittings and zmt tubing. I'm using it currently and they fit just fine. Not too tight, not too loose.

Spend the few bucks for clear coolant. It's a hot topic debate on distilled water and biocides and what they may or may not do to the nickel plating of blocks. It may he fine, but it might not be. I do know that either premixed or concentrate coolant doesn't have an issue. Drop the 12-15 bucks and sleep easy.

I need to get rid of 350W of heat, on LGA2066 my Kraken X62 is giving up.
The loop will be built for performance, I don't care about how it looks.

What I'm thinking about now is:
- EK Supremacy EVO X99 (cheaper than the standard version and comes pre-assembled for 2011-3 which has the same holes as 2066)
- EK ZMT tubing
- Mayhems Clear coolant
- EK fittings
- EK-DBAY D5 PWM MX - Acetal - incl. pump
- Noctua PPC 2000 fans

And I'm pretty much stuck on what rad to choose, also not sure how 420 will cope with so much heat. Was thinking about EK CE 420 rad.

Hello Martin,

just a few comments because I went the same path recently (I bought pre-owned stuff, so brands are mixed):

Enthoo Luxe non-TG
ALC 420 ST30 with NB 14 Eloops (PS or 14-2/3 should be all you need); Rad is fine, If I had the choice I´d go for hardwarelabs which should be available to you in the Netherlands better than for me in Germany...

You don´t want a bigger rad up there, you could put standard fans in the top compartment and fit a 55-60mm rad on top, but that would Limit you in Terms of fan usage, and would not yield much if any benefit.

I have used ALC hardtubes and Fittings, no issues except for the fact the the ALC insert does not fit properly in their own hardtubes... had to us a different brand which worked better. Pump is an ALC VPP655, (D5), Res is a Watercool Tube D5. Next thing i´ll do with the case is a mad to fit a 280 HWLabs Rad in the front.

Mind sharing a picture? Would love to see where and how did you mount the res and pomp.

I'm the new owner of a Phanteks Enthoo Luxe tempered glass but I'm not quite a fan yet. I can't get the exterior lights or the power button to work on the case. I've checked the motherboard connections and all the connections present in the case. I can turn on the computer by using the power button on the motherboard. I'm in contact with Phanteks customer support but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for a quick fix.

Did you check the connections to the IO panel? The wires may have gotten tugged and loosened the plugs.

Yes, everything on the I/O panel works as advertised. I rechecked all the connections for the case lighting and the three connections under the top panel and everything is in order. The light around the power button is working but the button itself does nothing when pressed. I'm guessing the PCB under the top panel is faulty. Thanks for the input.

Hello everyone,

I've just joined the club and here's my case...
post #18660 of 19205
Finally got my build ready enough to post pics of it. Still got a list of things to do but it's close to done.

Phanteks Enthoo Evolve ATX TG
360+280+140 rads
Crosshair 6 hero with R7 1800X @ 4ghz EK monoblock nickel
32 GB G.Skill tridentZ ram @ 2933 C16 (dual rank😑)
2x Vega RX 64 with full cover EK blocks in nickel
250 GB nvme Samsung boot drive, 960GB SanDisk for steam 2 ssds for pics and movies.
All monsoon chaingun fittings and monsoon tubing with 150 mm reservoir.
EK d5 pump.and EK Vardar fans, 3x120 + 3x140.
Corsair RM1000x PSU with full cablemod red and black sleeves

I work at a machine shop and run a CNC mill so the top and front were machined with AMD branding mainly for increased airflow. All other openings are covered to force air through the 360 coming in and exhausted thru the 280 and 140 rads.
Our office manager does embroidery on the side so I had her and her husband make me some black leather covers for the PSU cover as well as a lexan sheet used to cover the wiring in the back. So the lettering is all embroidery.
