Steven Stacy Here is my 1st water cooled rig. I still need to clean it up, however, I had to re-arrange it so many times that I've relied on bunch of fittings. I'll have a crap load of fittings left over with so many changes.
A few fittings that's still in the build probably will eventually go so it can look cleaner.

Edit:
I moved the 2nd pump and added an extension to the fill port to eliminate the air gulp in the distro.
Had some great info on another thread.
Skupples gave me the idea to check my air intake with high rpm from the pump. Sure enough air was being gulped under load. I didn't notice it with white opaque coolant. I'm sticking with distilled from now on.

The Kingpin waterblocks REALLY restricted flow. Both in parallel and serial. In the end (and why it looks crazy in there), i had to do Y splitting.

Note on the case. I really like it. It is full EATX and fixes nicely in a AV case. (this is my gaming HTPC). It is a shame is cost so much and the screen on it is pointless (i disabled it.)


Case: Steiger Dynamics LEET
Motherboard: EVGA Dark x299
CPU: Intel 7900x @ 4.8ghz (soon to be replaced with a 10980xe)
Ram: GSKILL Trident Z 3600 CL16 @ 4000mhz
Graphics card: EVGA 2080 ti Kingpin @ 2175mhz
Graphics card: EVGA 2080 ti Kingpin @ 2175mhz
PSU: Corsair AX1600i (It NEEDs the power. A seasonic 1200w wasn't enough)
HDD/SSD: Samsung 970 pro 1TB
HDD/SSD: Samsung 970 pro 1TB
HDD/SSD: Intel Optane 900p NVMe

Watercooling
CPU/Mobo: Optimus Foundation
GPU: K|NGP|N Hydro Copper (blah)
Radiators: Koolance ERM-3K3UC
Res/Pump: Dual pump (BP block with 2 swiftech's D5)
Flow: 6.5 LPM
Tubing: PrimoFlex Advanced
Fittings: Random stuff. Mostly BP and Koolance
Coolant: Koolance 702 Liquid Coolant (blue)

Pretty sweet! Guessing you built it as a strictly gaming system since it's tied into the entertainment center? That's actually a pretty good way to go since I'm not a console fan either. When you're packing such an extensive system into something like the AV box, pretty is never really a factor. Although here's a thought... Maybe next time do a wall build. You'll be able to spread it out, run some clean lines and led lighting...make it a piece of art to accompany the entertainment system. But all in all a good job on cramming it all in there. With the water cooling you won't have to worry too much about a perfect case airflow.

It's this one https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-cryofue...-premix-1000ml

Your build is also very solid! That bottom tube would have taken me a very long time I think
Just curious...what's that small (80mm) fan for?

I used to be a master fabricator/mechanical engineer so tube bending I've had quite a bit of practice at lol Most people don't notice, but the inlet to the CPU block has a compound bend to it as well. 90 into the block and then a 12 degree to angle it down to set the spacing to match the return. The MB originally came with a small 40mm fan and a bracket that sat over the VRM. But the design was bad (fan loud as hell and half of it was sitting over the decorative shroud on the left. Used some left-over acrylic (small monitor) and built a bracket to hold a 60mm pwm fan directly over the VRM. Think it's right around 5db now and is blowing 4 times the amount of air. Used OCCT when I was over-clocking and the VRM barely went past 40c under full load after an hour.

Soulpatch Finally the new cables are in, the last of the lighting and software tweaked for the monitor and it's complete. Having custom cables not only adds to the look but they are SOOOOOO much easier on routing and cleaning it all up in the back. Still debating on a small reservoir where the case badge is located or maybe build a custom one to go across just under the rad fans.

Looks really sharp. nice clean lines and it's good to see runs with multiple bends instead of all those elbows that people tend to throw in. If you want that many elbows, run glass. Acrylic or petg is designed to be bent and get creative with. Love the green as well, what company is that? Dye or suspended? I'm just running clear because I've read too many horror stories on anybody running anything colored for too long. The only time I've ever run anything with color to it was glycol 20 years ago lol

I've finally finished my rebuild including the new cables/lighting. So should take some new pics to post as well. Seeing yours was a good reminder lol

Super clean build there. Loving the tilted GPU, it goes great with the lines of the case.

Loving those lines in the front between the rads, it's cool when you can make something boring like that in to something super cool.

Not all builds need to be an art piece, sometimes practicality comes in front. Especially when you have a cool case like that for a TV setup, I mean what is that thing? It looks like a small rack closet with a 4u installed, just way more stylish.

So was stuck with a vertical mount whether I liked it or not lol But in a world of pre-made components it's good to see some original thinking from time to time.
To be clear I don't mind that people use the case specific kits, they generally look great and cut down on cost and are way more practical. It does however limit the diversity between builds which also makes it less exiting to see (I mean they are still super cool and all, but after you see 10 of the same build the exitment sort or dwindles off a bit).

It used to be you had to hack apart a case to fit even the most basic loops, not saying that is a great thing but it does become a breeding ground for creative soloutions.
