Makes so much sense I got a CVIIHero Block knowing that I am going to end up in an O11 XL.

Monoblocks aren't a necessity as most high end Motherboards come with quality Mosfets and VRMs, but if you're not blowing air over the socket then they help. It's much like RAM. You don't need to watercool them except in situations where airflow is minimal. Such as a O11 Dynamic with two 360s' and no extra fan blowing across/ or with a Horizontal GPU in the way of bottom mounted case fans. So a Monoblock would keep things cool in that kind of setup.

Hope I made this clear enough? The coolant temp stabilizes over a short period of time and heat is expelled at the Radiator.

J7SC I posted this at the Core P5 thread as well... latest vid by Declassified Systems, which/who has done various other TT Core P5 (like this build) and other TT Core cases that are highly unique...

Joossens Completed over a year ago, pics are long overdue...
Alas there's a led that didn't even survived that long :-(

It's my first hardline loop, an all glass build :-)
It is also the first time I modded a case (corsair carbide air 540)

Hope you guys like it!

KCDC Been trying to post my new build, but getting Database error on this thread again..... I've learned to copy pasta lately with OCN



EDIT: My original post: Got my new main PSU cables today from Mainframe Customs. Perfectly done. Still messing with the GPU layouts, but I am currently pleased with what I have that I'd like to show. Also spent an hour or so cleaning the back spaghetti. Made a new Rig Build if anyone wants to give me a pointer or two. Lots of cables I'm dealing with! My desk cabling is next, no need to give me crap for that yet

That's how it is in the SoCal stores at least. The stores are fun-looking at least.
I went to the local one in my area yesterday looking for a 3D Blu-ray, and the merchandise in the store as a whole looked thinned out, as if they were going out of business (Woodland Hills location). Not sure why, but online sales from other retail giants and Amazon might have something to do with it.
