[Build Log] a first watercooling try

Could not resist to post here.

Made my last own build maybe 25 years ago (I think it was the 386 era).

Now I had the idea to make a machine again. Purpose is rendering and that kind of stuff. Waited long for AMD to mature their new Zen CPUs. But after reading the reviews of the latest Threadripper incarnation I decided it is time to pull the trigger.

Got the 3960x (which has more cores and is way faster than my current DELL dual Xeon workstation and offers plenty of PCIe lanes). Got an ASrock Creator (up to four GPUs -> cool), an RTX 2080 Ti (a second one might follow) an RTX Quadro 4000 and a lot of stuff I never touched before (what the heck is a GPU block and for what do one need fittings?).

Good that there is this forum and all those youtubers to help

I think, that's what they mean when they talk about "complexity" in management seminars.

I decided I have to jump in at the deep end and stop watching reviews.

Ah, got it.

Now I understand why cases have all those holes. They are there to hide the cable chaos on the dark side.

Hey cool,
one can switch on a PC even if only half of the stuff is in. And best is: no fire or explosions.

Are we there yet, are we there yet?

Nope, still working on it
and waiting for PSU replacement cables (the included ones are super solid but bulky as hell).

Time for sleep now.

Thanks for watching

Nice loop setup there. Very clean with few bends

@Hydroplane
Appriciated
Found out by coincidence that X-Flow radiators exist.


I should not care - it is just a bunch of cables to deliver power.
But seeing this bulk drives me crazy.

Please, Mr. Postman
look and see
is there a letter in your bag for me?

Please, please, Mr. Postman I've been waiting a long, long time
to hear from that PSU cable replacement of mine.

(slight deviation of the lyrics of "Please Mister Postman" from the Beatles)

Arghh,

the cablemod ATX cable is not compatible with the Corsair AX1600i even though the shop website said "compatible with AXi series".
Searched the details and found out that AX1600i needs type 4 ATX not type 3.

Damn, why do the distributors not do their homework?
