8700k goes 5gHz withot any problems with 1.35 volts, but the asus bios fan settings do not allow to limit the pump RPM (it is connected as a CPU-Fan) thus the pump goes full speed at 80C and my D5 is a bit loud one at full speed, so it stays at stock 4.7gHz with MCE on. Does the job for me)))

After a few unsuccessful attempts of building a distro-plate I gave up on the idea and used normal tubes and bends. The rig is up and running
the leak test
The lights are on and burning brightly for the masses

The drawing is finalized, sent to the milling shop.
Motherboard recieved by the seller, and was forwarded to asus service center, it might take a while to get it fixed or replaced

Something gone wrong. Two days after the fill decided to power up the rig. Pressed the power button an nothing, checked the psu, the switch is on but it just does not start. Drained the system, disassemble it all, checked all the cables, reassembled it on the “bench” still nothing, jump started the psu, all the voltages are correct. All it does is flashes the rgb’s at the bottom of the motherboard and an orange light next to pci-e slot lights up.
Next day found someone with z370 board and checked all the gear. The mobo is DEAD!!!!
It is currently on the way to the seller and hopefully I’ll get a replacement.
Meanwhile i decided to make my own waterway (distribution) board
Detting all the tubes alligned
Almost the final design in autocad.
It is going to be a three piece board. 8mm acrilyc sandwiched between 2 5mm sheets. All is going to be held together with m4 hex bolts. And lit up with an rgb strip at the back
Looks like it becomes a never ending build

So finally it is fully assembled, all tubes are bent, all waterblocks are installed, cables are managed and all the rgb strips are installedand the watercooling system is filled up with water and leak tested. All is left is to press the power switch, and after the first boot I’ll change the fluid to some EK solid fluid

Slowly this rig becomes a bit better.
First I've added another SSD Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB
After that I ve changed my old Pioneer 50" plasma to something a bit bigger and overall better Samsung 65" Q9FN
And to spice it all up GTX 1080 was changed to EVGA GTX 1080Ti SC Black edition. It was not new and it was from a mining rig, but the price was right and I took the gamble. Cleaned it up, changed thermal paste and now it is running flowlessly.
All is left is to watercool it. Ordered some fittings and will waiting for them.

Aircooled build is more or less complete!!!
Some cable managment to be done
Add a couple more fans and tune it up
A mock up, just to figure out if it all fits

Last case mods, the original plan was to use 90 dgrees hdmi cable, but i could not find one with hdmi 2.0 support, thus had to cut out some of the back panel, the eps cable did not fit so i made a hole a bit bigger
All the hardware is installed
All the games and programs are transferring from the old rigAttachment 203064
All is left to do is to clean up the cable mess, tune it up and install some software

Finally most of the parts arrived
So I decided to test them
Samsung 960 evo 500gb installed
Corsair venegence RGB
EVGA GTX 1080 (not Ti😢😢😢[IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif[/IMG]
Most of it is kind of installed on the improvised testbench (motherboard box)
But the cooler master cpu cooler could not be installed, the RAM and VRM heatsink are too tall, but if there is a will there is a way
An angle grinder comes to rescue
Attachment 203020Attachment 203022
Just a couple mm and it is a perfect fit
Changed coolermaster slim fan to be quiet silent wings 3 (had some around for the x58 all watercooled build)
Finally all temerarly installed and running
BIOS sees all 16gb of RAM, nvme ssd and cpu all seems to be working
Time to install windows
To be continued....
