MSI x99a Godlike Water Cooling Build - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Thread Starter 
That's awesome. I love the sleeved cables in the case. I just ordered the https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-kit-x360 and plan on getting another rad for when I get my GPU block. I already have the EK-RAM blocks so I'm thinking I will just do the CPU and RAM for now until I decide to get the GPU cooler and rest of the supplies. I'm probably going to wait until the Carbon comes out to get the rest of the stuff and at least have everything sized out and functioning. I decided to order this because of this post which you may find helpful. http://rog.asus.com/392212014/overclocking/overclocking-a-5960x-with-ek-kit-x360-water-cooling-kit/

I also just got the 512gb Samsung 950 pro and would highly recommend getting one. Also, i'm assuming that my 750w PSU isn't gonna be enough, so i'm gonna order a 1000w this week. Any recommendations?

I just ordered two EKWB rads, XE series 240 and 360. I might have to do some modding to get them to fit in my Corsair Air 540 though.
We'll see when they arrive..
Still gotta wait on the Motherboard to release though..

Oh, but my bitspower block kit for the godlike finally shipped today! I might do a short unboxing video for it when it arrives because I could not find one online.

Let me know if you do that since that block looks great. I got most of my parts and decided to do Acrylic, so it should be a fun project this weekend. I ordered a bunch of bitspower 90 degree fittings to make it easier, but the other bends are going to be interesting. The XE365 is much wider than I expected though so I have to put it in the bottom of my case along with the pump. I'll take pictures when I do it this weekend and upload as well.

The blocks came in the mail today, sadly no motherboard yet, waiting on the carbon edition. Here is an unboxing video I made if you wanted a closer look at them.

That block looks very nice. I tried doing acrylic for my loop this week, but had some huge issues. I bought the Bitspower 90 degree fittings to use and they didn't fit on the 12mm tubing. I also had a stripped screw on my previous heatsink so that was fun as well. In the end I just took off the ram blocks and did the cpu for now and i'll just do acrylic when I get my video card block. For being so rushed and having so many issues I think it came out pretty good. Here are some pics for now.

Nice move with the carbon wrap, I figured I would use some of that stuff when I get my godlike carbon. And like you, I plan on only putting the CPU/Mobo under water for now because I don't think it would be worth getting a block for my single reference 980. I'll wait for next gen to do that.

Thanks! I didn't plan on using that and actually bought it off of wish.com since it was super cheap. I think it helped make it look much better though compared to the raw metal look it had before. I finally got some good fans and pci slot plates which made it look much better.
