My first full custom watercool build!


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

So here goes my first attempt and full watercooling. Have always wanted to and have run AIO for a long time, have built pcs for top 100 benchmarks before LN2 became so common making it impossible with being the richest man alive to compete with the latest gear the day it came out. but anyway! thoughts and ideas from people or suggestions are very welcome! :sunglasse

 

My pc part list is attached.

 

Here is my steam: https://steamcommunity.com/id/icecoldnz/ ill be happy to communicate thru chat!

BTW, if necessary you can rotate the CPU block bezel, light ring, and intake/exit ports independently on that block. It's just like changing the jet plate and only requires you to remove 2 allen screws with the tool in the kit. This can be useful if you don't really like the offset ports or want to create more clearance around the RAM, but still want the "lighting tab" on the bottom. It may also have meaning if you got the D-RGB version. LED 1 and LED 20 are on the same corner under the bezel. That means for sequenced effects you will get some light crossover under that tab. I rotated my ring up so the start/end point was behind the RAM where I can never see it.

Hi,

 

 

So here it is all build and done, I cannot recommend the EKWB kit for anything else other than the silicone 10mm insert to help you bend, and also am not very happy with EKWB for the issues with RGB on the Velocity RGB CPU block as the led dont work properly and is faulty =-/

to be honest it was not as hard as i expected but it is daunting, this was all PETG and bent as normal with standard g/1/4 fittings. i recommend help and dont do it alone. my partner helped me with building it and I couldnt have completed it without her help!

 

Anyway enjoy the photos, ask questions and ignore the voltage as I ran the cpu on auto to see temps.
