7-way waterblock bridge... eek.gif
post #14302 of 20430
Very close at ordering the EK 240 kit but i'm looking at my rig right now and i'm wondering where i should put the pump/res combo without making the loop "too long". I was thinking of putting it in the rear-chamber in my Corsair 540, probably looks best and plenty of space back there.

Anyone else here with this particular case? And/or suggestions for a CPU only loop?

So yes I can see a difference in yours. Maybe it was lapped and then returned, but if you run your fingernail across it and it doesn't catch I don't think the scratches would be enough to worry about, the TIM should fill it in. You can always RMA it if your worried too much about it.

That's the point made me confused. On the picture the surface is very smooth, as it is on my M6I monoblock.

Yes, I know I modified one of the brackets, but it was obviously off the block when I did that.

Maybe these are really a normal process marcs. But in my case it seemed that the marcs have been added after the plating.


Nevertheless I decided to RMA it, and get sealed one.

That's normal for Thermosphere. I have a pair of them(Acrylic/Copper) and the cooling plates are thin so they can't be polished to the same mirror shine that comes on the EVO block and Monoblocks. There is nothing wrong with them. But one should not judge EK quality based on Thermosphere plates. I have EK Supreme HF and Crosshair IV Formula blocks and both of them are mirror finished quality.

I would have to say that someone took paper to that Monoblock, scratched the surface and returned it. The unit was resold without inspection imho. Cause nobody familiar with EK quality would have sold that block had they inspected it. Or at least they shouldn't have if they inspected it. thinking.gif

Just started a new micro atx build, took my training bra off after using AIO for so long...going with all EK stuff, just bought the xres 140 D5 Revo, waiting on a 360mm rad and still deciding on a monoblock or just cpu block. Acrylic tubing with white pastel.










And this is my other rig, i7 6700K/gtx 980 small form ITX


both cases look the same just one is bigger than the other lol. Both rigs have same specs...

For the asus deluxe monoblock x99 do I need to take the board out of the case or can it just bolt on?
post #14308 of 20430
This build is fantastic with Maximus VIII Gene and X-RES Revo D5 ...and legendary Lian-Li PC-O6S.
Aluminium case is something best.




I hope one day some extra money from upgrade will remain enough to build some smaller custom loop for GPU and CPU.
At least for these EKWB Predator or Swftech H220/H320 X2 Prestige.

Man I love that case! It's the one I've been wanting for quite a while, but unfortunately it seems my Predator 360 won't fit inside it. It says on the Lian Li website that L/W/H can max be 400/132/60mm) and the Predator 360 is 415/133/68mm (with fans).
