The Most Nervous Overthinker Attempts Watercooling
Hello all! So I have been a user here for a few years now and am finally dipping my feet into the wet end of the pool. In the past I purchased a few custom loop builds from system integrators and was not pleased at all. I won't name drop and please don't ask as that is the past and we are here now.
I am planning two hardline systems back to back both using PETG tubing but from different vendors.
The first build: Alpha will be a 2700x with a Vega 64 and it will be hooked up to my 4K TV for couch controller gaming. Chassis is Inwin 303C
The loop will contain both the CPU and GPU.
The second build: Omega will be a 9900k (binned chip already sourced) and my MSI 2080Ti Gaming X Trio that is currently in my main rig. This rig will replace the main once complete. Chassis is TT P5 which will be wall mounted. The loop will contain both the CPU and GPU as well as the VRM via a block build into the motherboard I am using.
Testing will be done on a Praxis WetBench which I just assembled tonight.
All the part for build one are already here (pics after holiday) and the only parts missing for build 2 are pump(s), reservoir, and fittings. I am looking to do dual D5 pumps for redundancy with this and the fittings will be Bitspower White 16mm. I am looking for cool white pump tops but if I can't find them I will go with plexi.
Both will be using 16mm OD/12mm ID PETG. Alpha is EK tubing and fittings (with a few Barrow fittings as well). Omega is Bitspower Tubing and Fittings.
Anyways here is some porn for now until I can rack up all the hardware and parts for some good shots. Feel free to sub and all suggestions etc. are much welcome.
