My new Hydro X Build

Recommended Posts

After a half year of collecting components for my new PC, the final part arrived a few days ago, the Ryzen 9 5900X.

After the build, i went crazy, because the monitor showed nothing than black, so i dismantled the thing partially to foreclose a defect. A bit later, it shot in my mind, that maybe the bios is not ready for the Ryzen 5000 Series, and YESSS, that was the problem and was easy to solve :-D

 

Short Facts about the System:

 

Case: Lian Li "DER BAUER" O11 Dynamic XL white

MB: Asus Crosshair VIII Formula (X570)

CPU: Ryzen 9 5900X

GPU: MSI Ventus 3X OC RTX 3090

Watercooling: all Corsair Hydro X with white Components when available.

Softtubing.

Fans: Corsair LL120 white.

The orientation of the fans may prompt questions, i have thougt about it a long time. There is always a fight between optic and airflow. So i decided to make the side fans as intake and all others as outtake, this is probably not the best airflow, but it looks really nice. If the temps are too high, i can still flip the fans.

 

Merry and healthy Christmas to everyone.

You know, there's virtually no difference between having fans in push or pull, soooo you could very well install them inside and enjoy both airflow and RGB mayhem :)

 

Same for the bottom rad, if you want it as intake to have two rads running on fresh air, you can.

Looks great! I have been debating on doing 3 rads in my case (same as yours O11 XL). Right now I have a XR7 360 and XR5 360 that I plan to put in the top and bottom... my plan right now was to use the side as purely a filtered intake and the top and bottom as exhausts.

 

What kind of temps are you getting on your CPU/GPU? Any overclocking?

Hi guys, thank you for the response.

 

@Kuro Houou: XR7 + XR 5 sounds good to me. I have 3x XR5, the side one intake and bottom+top outtake. I have no overclocking yet. It seems yet, the Ryzen 9 is not so easy and efficient to overclock. I will do it a little bit for the RTX 3090, as it is possible.

 

My temps are around 60°C CPU rather higher, GPU rather lower. In Idle, the temps are even lower.
