9900k custom loop plans

The loop will be used to cool the cpu only (about 5.2 is the target freq) in my studio with pretty high ambient temps all year (from 22°C to 35°). It'll will also need to be expandable to include a gpu loop in the future (3080 or 4080 depending on prices and perfs). Therefore 2x360 medium-thick rads from the start.
It will reside in my new case, the beautiful bequiet Dark Base 700 white edition in a reverted layout. Thanks to having a mATX board, there is about 10cm clearance on top (no rad bracket will be used). The case will be modded, to make the top meshed, some painting, and various acryl panels to cover the less nice bits and perhaps a LCD screen.
Full build specs are in my signature.

Said that, this was my inspiration:

And this is the current state of my build, with visible clearances. Yes, I have yet to put close the psu cover and the side panels.


Cpu block: EKWB velocity rgb nickel (100€)
Pump: d5 (80€) (1,5gpm target) any will do as it will be hid in the base.
Reservoir: singularity 300mm tank clear/silver (120€)
Radiators: 2x360 EK PE and EK XE (200€ total)
Tubing: acrylic hard tubing 10/12
Fittings: nickel EKWB ACF 6 pack, plus some 90° and 45°.
Coolant: Primochill Vue dark cherry (25€) OR Koolance low conductive clear (20€)
Fans: All bequiet! Silentwings3 1600rpm max 140mm. The 60mm rad will probably be push-pull, with a custom shroud 420 to 360.
Accessories: LCD 3" screen, a few acrylic custom panels, fill valve and drain valve, one or two more RGB led strips.


I have to recheck all radiator reviews because I was initially set on going with a single 420, but after having the case in my hand I have decided for two 360, while keeping the awesome silentwings 140 fans. The rig is going to be damn quiet basically as much as it is at 5.0 with the 360 AIO. The fans are at 800rpm and I can accept 1100 speed.
The case rheobus with or without PWM control from mainboard is more than enough for my needs and I will not get an Aquaero.

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Change to a Heatkiller block and HWL Rads
Go dual pump if you can

Also Mayhems makes the best fluid. Pick some coloured X1 or Pastels

This on all counts. Excepting the dual pump for a loop that small, redundancy is nice but far from necessary. I would change out the fittings to Bitspower, Barrow or XSPC as well.

And avoid the VUE at all cost. Just look at the thread of horror stories here. Stick with Mayhem's X1.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Unfortunately I need the RGB on the cpu block, but I heard only good things on the new velocity block and the nickel top version doesn't have the issues of the acrylic one.

As I said I have to recheck all rads tests because switching size. I was going for the Nemesis GTX as 420. I think that the EKWB 60mm thick is a little better, but gotta study them again. Probably will be one GTX and one XE in the end.

Dual pump - great idea, I can probably squeeze the extra 100 bucks of the pump and few more fittings.

Fluid - Nobody else makes that color. Worst case I can go clear (I do prefer the koolance low conductive though), or white (mayhems pastel in this case). Anyway I will be using a premixed - not messing with dyes and additives that wouldn't mix well if from different brands.
The loop will be built in a way that I can easily drain it.

I dont understand your question, but I can fit two pumps with that joint if I wish to go with dual pumps.
But I probably won't - it's not a mission critical computer that must be running 24/7 and Laing D5 reliability is good.

I want to build an extreme rig with dual pump in serie in order to get quieter pump. I was planning to get a Lian Li PC-V3000 but it is discontinued. I want to get a large reservoir like Heatkiller tube 200 or alike. I also want to a couple of Shoggy Sandwich (only one doesn't support dual pump with EK TOP) in order to mitigate the vibrations.

I forgot to say. I also want two HWLabs SR2 360 inside the case. What does case hold all this?

Ah, ok, so this is not related to my build. The Dark Base 900 pro would fit your loop (inverted or straight if you prefer).
Then there is the classic Temjin from Silvestone which should still be in production.
Perhaps a custom case made from scratch by a modder would be best if you care for looks too and got as much as a couple grands for case and loop.

As you know from my current experience with the 9900k, even delidded and copper IHS, damn thing is hard to cool(considering your goal). If you could squeeze the dual pump its future proofing in case you want or need to separate the loops for better performance, again as its my current case. Seem you'll be good with the room in the case and the mATX.
Can vouch for Heatkiller block, its doing a great job with my little 280 for the cpu temps.

Thanks for your input. I really do not plan to watercool a vga because I change it every 18 months. It was just hypothetical.
