New 3900X build- my first attempt at water cooling. Custom hardline loop.

Loving this PC. I have some minor complaints about the case, but everything else has performed as expected or better. I do get some coil whine from the video card under heavy loading, but I've heard much worse though. I know the monoblock is total overkill, but I really like the flow wheel indicator as a quick check that the pump is flowing.

The Alphacool rads have a lot of ports, so I took advantage of that have a drain valve at the front of the case, and ports up high to fill from. Draining and filling the loop is cake. I have temp sensors in the other empty ports.

I am surprised at the amount of power the system can draw. I've seen sustained loads over 750W with my kill-a-watt meter. The 750W power supply was all I could find at the time, I really wanted an 850W or a 1000W model. I will upgrade the PSU when I do a CPU and GPU upgrade down the road.

The cooling capacity of the loop is phenominal. The water temps barely rise no matter how much heat is dumped into the loop. When you are sitting at the desk, you can't tell- but when you stand up, you feel this layer of heat up high that the PC has dumped into the room. It makes one hell of a space heater.

Looking forward to Zen3 chips, and better GPUs down the road. A GPU swap will only take two new runs max with my setup, and they are the two most easily accessible runs.

Looks good.

Those extra ports on the radiators are underrated.

Not OP but if you're referring to those LCD temp screens, I'm pretty sure that's liquid temps based on their hwinfo screenshots.

As another point of reference my 3900x is sitting at 39c under light load with 29c liquid in a 25c ambient room. My rig is never completely idle, so I rarely see it go below 37c.

Nice job on the hardline tube, see too many builds that use hard 90's etc. instead of bending the tube.

Very nice build. I can't even imagine the amount of time and effort that went into it. While some of your component choices aren't the same as I would make, it's still damn nice.

For myself, I doubt I'll ever go hard tubing. Every time I start to consider it, something happens to remind me how much flexibility soft tubing gives me. (For example, I can re-paste my CPU without ever draining my loop, and if a soft tube ever gets in my way, I can easily just push it to the side.) Of course, I also have a bunch of ugly soft tubes sticking all over...
