My first Open-Loop!!!!

Here's my AliExpress Special. Everything came out OK. But the Distplate top left-hand corner outlet is being blocked by my rad. So it doesn't look like the pics on AliExpress. I think going directly to the Rad from the CPU is a cleaner solution anyway. I am extremely impressed with the Barrow GPU water block. The vid card that I have is a Zotac MAXX 2080. That thing would get up to 84c on the regular during gaming. Now with the Barrow Block I cannot get it past 57c despite running furmark GPU stress test for about a half hour.

Now the CPU block is a different story. My 3700x gets up to 80c with that block during half hour long fur mark CPU stress tests and high 70's during gaming. I'm not sure what's going on here but I had an AIO connected to the CPU and I would switch off the CPU stress-test at about 90c because I got scared. This after about 10 minutes of the stress test. I put on the Stock Air Cooler and the temps would get up to 85c and stay there. The Stock AMD Air cooler outperformed this $150 Coolermaster AIO that I bought. That AIO was why I decided to do the open-loop. It was very loud. But getting back to the CPU. I think I might just have a very hot 3700x. I mean with my open loop you can feel some serious heat being pumped out of the rad during long heavy loads. Anyway I think I did OK for my first Water Cooled Build.

You can rename your first post in THIS new thread you started above with ' [Build Log] in front of it in case you plan additional build posts and pics...

Also, you can post your pics separately here: https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...e-gallery.html

looks nice. is flow direction correct on the cpu and gpu? if you had soft tube, I would suggest moving the meter over to the cpu; at least for testing flow.

Meaning not sealed like an AIO. You can open and close the loop till your hearts content. Are these not Open-Loop systems?

Thanks! Flow direction is correct. Bottom in, top out. Flow is good. Its just that my 3700x seems to be a little hot.

I've been running the CPU burner for quite some time and now the temperature will not go past 70c. Not sure what happened but the temps are now better. I actually forgot I had it running. What I love is how the pumps are PWM controlled. Water flow according to temps. I should have done this years ago.
