There is also the popular Thermaltake Core P5

http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/Chassis/Mid_Tower_/Core/C_00002732/Core_P5/design.htm

but not for myself, it looks nice, but it seems prone to break apart tongue.gif



I have that P5, it's really big, and awkward looking...looking to get rid of it for 80 bucks but nobody wants to buy...might just trash it soon...it's gigantic, if you want a wall hanging case, go with the Lian Li O6S, that was my last build that i sold...let me get a pic

This is my last build, looks way better than the Core P5 IMO..

Just want to double check, is it safe to use Brasso to polishing fittings?

Well, last night I tried to install the VRM waterblock on my Asus X99 Deluxe II MB, only to find out it doesn't fit. The screws are off slightly, and it feels like the VRM chips on this board are thinner, which would prevent me from getting a solid connection between the VRMs and the waterblock. (If I held the block over the VRMs as if there were screw holes lined up on the board, the waterblock was wobbly even with the thermal pad attached). I had this block installed on my Rampage V Extreme, and I want to say it was also installed on my X99 Deluxe a few years ago when the board was released.

I bought the Plexi-Nickel waterblock and it came in a set from EK with the chipset waterblock. Does anyone have this board watercooled? Besides the CPU waterblock and a full cover waterblock? If so, what block are you using? I went to the EK Cooling Configurator, and it listed under Mosfet waterblocks that they had no intention of building one, but it said the same for the RVE, which is the board this came off of. I'm assuming it lists this because EK sells it as part of a kit, not individually. As a matter of fact, I bought this block directly from EK.

If anyone knows of a waterblock which fits the VRM on the Asus X99 Deluxe II MB, please let me know. I'm not biased on brands, as long as it's not a Chinese Aluminum block, but I would greatly appreciate some suggestions.

There are a few reasons actually.

1) pinched o-ring in the mfr process.

2) Fittings improperly applied. Or bad Orings. the orings could've been borked before they ever were installed.

3) Hardline tubes not true in their bends can add unnoticeable pressure to a fitting which can cause leaks.

Then we should always remember the rule of 3 to 5%.

The gist of the rule is this:

With every quality product in this industry the failure rate is roughly between 3 to 5 percent of any given product. That's truly not that bad. It sucks when you fall into those parameters but chances are reasonably slim. mellowsmiley.gif

3) Hardline tubes not true in their bends can add unnoticeable pressure to a fitting which can cause leaks.

Then we should always remember the rule of 3 to 5%.

The gist of the rule is this:

With every quality product in this industry the failure rate is roughly between 3 to 5 percent of any given product. That's truly not that bad. It sucks when you fall into those parameters but chances are reasonably slim. mellowsmiley.gif

Yea but point 2-3 have nothing to do with the block but more the fittings and tubing. But i get what youre saying. For me it was the ek 90° fitting that leaked because the tubing was pulling it in an awkward angle and making it leak. Switched it and no issues since.
