Got my watercooling parts in today. Performance PCs made sure I had plenty of peanuts smile.gif






Made up the drain port:



This clearly wasn't going to work lol, these fittings were a lot larger in real life than they were in my imagination:


I put a small piece of tube in between two fittings, it sure was a pain getting that threaded in between two GPUs:


Installed the CPU and monoblock as well:



I figured out a good strategy for spreading the thermal paste, took a while though. Trust me, it's spread much thinner than it looks. I just did a painstakingly good job covering the whole area thumb.gif

Never been a fan of the grain of rice method. It usually leaves the corners bare. If the heatsink makes full contact with the IHS, it should cool a little better.



Also put the hard drive in. Incredible how small and light this thing is:



The fittings would not even fit on the radiator without hitting the fan. Luckily I can use two of the 45 fittings as spacers:



The pump/res should be here tomorrow then everything can go together. Almost there.

I installed the radiators permanently in the case. The only other thing in there is the PSU. I should be able to drill the holes for the pump/res and leak test the rads tomorrow.





I also tested the Silverstone fan hub to make sure it could run the Noctua fans. It easily powered the 6 140mm 3000rpm fans without getting hot. Those fans sure sound nice at full throttle thumb.gif Brings back memories of what it used to sound like to game on my old 4870x2s! The fans are so powerful that they actually move the floor lamp around.



Obviously some cable management is necessary before the final product lol

I ordered some more WC parts to make the process a little easier: an adjustable SLI connector, some extenders for the front rad, and some 90 degree EK adapters.

For whatever reason the Alphacool fittings are too tight on the Primochill tubing. I can only tighten down the compression ring halfway and even then it requires extreme physical force. I'm not sure if it would be an issue though, even with it only tightened a little, it's still impossible to pull the tube out, which typically indicates that it won't leak. I ordered an EK comp fitting to see if those fit better.

Still no sign of my pump, it's been stuck in Illinois since Nov 30th.

Do me a favor and go check to get yourself a custom set of cables for your PSU from cablemod in ModMesh and Pro variant wink.gif

I might for the 8 pins, they are twice as large as they need to be and no real place to hide them due to the size.

I received the pump today:




I put together a test loop to make sure it works and that the radiators don't leak:



Amazing that these fittings don't leak, they fit poorly and can only be tightened down halfway. But they seal very well:



The male to male fitting here leaked a little since it's hard to tighten down, I think I'll flip the t fitting then move the MTM fitting to the drain:



I'm letting it run for a while to remove any air, so far so good.

Drilling the hole for the pump:



Got the pump installed



I put the rest of the components in and finished the tubing. Getting the piece in between the two GPUs was a pain, I was worried it would leak. I have an extendable fitting that will replace that, maybe when I upgrade GPUs later down the line.




I flipped the drain valve and added it to the outlet. It might not be low enough to get everything out of the 2nd GPU:



Time to leak test thumb.gif Amazingly, there was not one single drip anywhere, at all. Especially impressive considering these fittings will only tighten down halfway.



The tube is restricted a bit between the last GPU and the pump. Once I get the 90 fittings, I'll probably add another here.



The finished product:



Just have to hook up some wires and I'm ready to boot!

Everything is now lit up:





First boot, what a beautiful sight:



After a while of playing with settings, I've got 4.3 GHz on all 18 cores with 1.10v and reasonable temps:



Pulls plenty of electricity at those settings. 560W on the CPU. I can pull 650W with the GPUs loaded running superposition.



It really is amazing how quiet the system runs, I can dissipate that kind of heat with my fans at 800 RPM and the GPUs don't go over 40C! If anything, this loop is overkill.

Still have some cable management to do in the back, plus I need to wire the power button to the motherboard before I can put the doors on.
