Thanks man, I've built so many Jank high performance PC's over the years, I wanted to try my hand at a "show room" PC for once. So far, it's been making me bleed money and question why I didn't just use soft tube again. Down the road, I'll probably swap all the hard tube fittings for soft tube and convert it to make my life easier, so far I despise hard tube life.Is the pump powerful enough to handle moving enough water to draw away the excess heat? Sounds to me like something is either impeding waterflow (bad/poor bend, too many right angle turns) or pump is the issue. Can't imagine just judging from those pictures that it'd be too many turns in the loop...
Gorgeous PC by the way! Work of art. @robbiemcg1226
The pump is a D5 PWM, it moves at max 3.8L/min according to my digital flow meter, I have it tuned to live life at 2L/min - 3.8 L/min depending on cpu temps.
