@Fluxmaven I believe I've actually read a lot of your ryzen content, definitely think it was helpful. Iirc I think you mentioned temps weren't quite impressive with the Velocity block, right? Good to know Barrow fittings worked for you cause I was pretty concerned since they cost like half of most others' brands.
Yea mentioning location is helpful with recommendations. I wouldn't worry too much about the pump. Unless you had a really restrictive loop (multiple restrictive blocks and radiators) it wouldn't be an issue.

I don't own any Velocity products. As far as I know they are very similar performance to Supremacy series though. I also haven't posted a bunch of content about my 3900x rig so you may have me mixed up with someone else. If you would like, I can give you temp info on my Supremacy Edge tonight. I don't have any complaints honestly. I have dual GPU + CPU loop with only 420 + 140mm radiators and can maintain a <10c DeltaT liquid temp.

Wow, sorry about that! For some reason I was absolutely convinced I've seen your name tag around the huge ryzen thread. Might have been too tired and mixed it up .
Anyhow, that's a pretty cool graph, never came across that article. I dug around the german forums for a bit cause it was mainly the only review I found of an aquastream.

I thought it would probably average out at 1Gpm but it's good to know it can do more than that, if I had a flow meter this would have really helped decide the order of the loop at the radiator. I have a HWL 360GTX which should have a medium restriction (based on xtremerigs' review) and I'm currently pondering whether 4x 90° angled fittings would impose a noticeable restriction (in which case I might go 2x 45° and 2x90°). It would be nice if I could expand the rig to include a GPU in the loop at a future point, but no biggie if it's not doable. I'd be glad to know what kind of temps you get on your 3900X under load if you have the time, 3900x/3950x data on waterblocks still seems to be kinda' scarce atm. TIA!

Idk how much my temps will help seeing as how I have a pretty weird setup. I have 2 radiators, 3 blocks, and 11 angled fittings so my loop has way more restriction than yours will.

Build log if you want to see my crazy monstrosity https://www.overclock.net/forum/1808...g-darling.html

Running my D5 at a fixed 90% I get 193 Lph (0.85 Gpm). Attached image is HWinfo current, min, max, average temps after I played the Division 2 for about an hour to get the temps up then ran Cinebench. Liquid temps drop down pretty quick after the machine goes back to idle. Ambient room temp is around 23-24c.

Whoa, that case is awesome! Those grills are really practical, I can assume it's something custom based on the front panel. Really neat layout too, kinda' wish some case manufacturer had thought of making something like this already.

Those temps are by far some of the best I've seen as well...makes me ponder whether a single radiator for the CPU would be slightly underwhelmed (with not-the-best fans).
Cheers for sharing your data!

Thanks. Other than the aesthetics, there isn't anything custom about the case. It's an LD cooling PC-V7. Pretty basic all aluminum case. http://www.ldcooling.com/shop/ld-pc-...k-280-420.html
I don't really like how most new cases are covered in tempered glass and/or solid panels. Having unrestricted air flow helps a ton.

Your GTX 360 on a CPU only loop will be fine even with sub par fans. I only have ML140's which are just decent. Granted if you wanted to add a GPU, I would add another radiator.

They're good cases for their time period but there's better stuff these days for compatibility at least (especially for rads). Nice build quality, I've got my new system in one.

To not be completely off topic, as long as fittings fit and don't leak then they should be fine. If needing to save some soft tubes with barbs are the way to go.

Thought I'd post a small update: so I've tried doing a few configurations, and I can't find a full set of Bitspower anywhere. Like literally nobody has more than a few bits of the same color in stock (I've checked most EU wide shops and some where I've bought before like aquatuning). Caseking are going to supposedly receive some earliest on the 31st, but at this point I'm not sure anymore. Thanks to the suggestions here I thought I'd get a few rotaries and the valve from BP as they have the best track record, and for the rest either to HK + straight barrow fittings or a Bykski block and all BP.

Does anyone know if any decent US vendor ships to EU? At this point I guess I might as well tank the import duty just so I can get a build going, I still need fittings and a CPU block and the stocks situation here isn't going to get much better.
