Custom loop

Hi all


Had been planing to do a custom loop on my new computer in the middle of building, Thought of using Primochill mostly but had a bad experience on their discord. Anyway would like to find ideas and what I would need as far as parts and fittings from other companies.

Also looking for as many as these parts that I can get in White, Since the case is black I want to do a Black and White theme

Using a Phantecks Entho 719(Aka the Lux)
Amd Ryzen 7 3700x
MSI 570 gaming plus
XFX RX5700 XT Thic III
Accelero extreme III For the GPU

Had run through Corsairs Hydro config online tool but honestly their prices seem a little high if you ask me.

All custom loops require a serious investment. You did not not say what exactly you were looking for. CPU only, CPU+GPU? Budget?

Are you wanting to do hardline or soft tube? do you want to use clear tubing with pastel white fluid, or white tubing? For cheaper fittings, Barrow are pretty good and come in white.

A good white 420mm Rad
A 480mm option

That should be possible. You want Res/Pump combo? Or separate.

Either separate or a combo but might be less clutter if they are a combo unit. Then again the Phanteks case has plenty of room. Also not sure what fans of course want to keep the price down on fans since this Phanteks case comes with no fans.

You'll need to provide more context of what you want to use. Depending on rigid tubing or soft tubing, it will change what type of fittings you'll purchase.

I actually swapped to white fittings when I re-vamped my loop last year. I previously used XSPC black chrome compression fittings and went with Barrow white compression fittings for soft tubing. The Barrow fittings are similar to Bitspower fittings but are much cheaper and are unbranded for a cleaner look. I also use Mayhem's Pastel white coolant with Primochill Advanced LRT clear tubing to show off the white opaque coolant. For radiators, I used Hardware Labs GTS radiators, which are sold in white from PPCs directly or PPCs via Amazon.

Having a separate pump and reservoir adds an additional tubing run and fittings. Combo unit is typically the way to go. Arctic makes probably the best budget fans. They do have white models that are available individually, but the 5 packs of black fans are unbeatable for the price.

Another option would be the grey Noctua Redux line.
