5000D Hydro X Edition build


Recommended Posts

So to start, I am bad at these sort of posts.

Working on a new build using allot of Corsair products including a 5000D Hydro X edition case. Doesn't seem to be too many of these yet so thought I'd share.

Specs - 

Case = Corsair 5000D Hydro X edition

MoBo = Msi Z590 Gaming Edge Wifi

Chip = Intel i7 11700k

CPU block = Corsair XC5

Memory = Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 4 x 8 3600 C16

GPU = 3080 out of an HP Omen

GPU block = Corsair 3080 reference

Radiators = 2x Corsair XR5 360mm

PSU = Corsair RM1000x

Cables = Corsair Starter Kit type 4

Tube and fittings = Primochill 14mm hardline

SSD 1 = Samsung 980 pro 250GB (for OS, Windows)

SSD 2 = Samsung 980 1TB for everything else

Fans = CoolerMaster sickleflow 120 x 6 

RGB control = Razer RGB addressable controller

Riser Cable = LinkUp PCIe4 200mm 90 degree cable

Fan / water pump control = Corsair Commander Pro

Thermal Paste = Artic Mx5

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Think that covers all the parts. Will be gaming on a Dell 27 QHD monitor S2721DGF. Mouse, keyboard and pad are all Razer products.

Pictures attatched of what I have so far. 2nd build and 1st hardline loop.

Thanks for looking.

On a side note, I am taking the GPU out of my current build. Trying to find a 3060 ti to put in its place (in my current build) so my son can use it. 😞

Couple more notes:

I plan to have all 6 fans exhausting like in the build example on the product page under "downloads". May add a fan on the rear at some point.

I really like the case but have a couple of small things I don't like.

The door on the back side of the case is held shut by a rather weak magnet and doesn't stay closed when laying it down (backside down) on a table. No big deal but annoying during this build process.

You can't really put the MB tray mounted radiator connectors up (like shown on the product page) unless you put the fans on the outside of the case top. I imagine the filter would need to be removed for this. Could probably also mount the radiator on the outside of the case with fans on the inside if you wanted to modify the case...?

Hard to plug in the USB 3.2 (?) even with the included adaptor. On my Mobo at least, the 90 faces the wrong direction, up instead of down.

So finished this build the other day. Ran out of time, patience and hard tube so ended up using soft tube to the GPU. May work on changing that at some point but super happy with it so far regarless.

Cool build, ninjatech269! Your feedback is appreciated. In order to access the top ports of the XR5 mounted to the motherboard tray, you are correct that the top radiator fans would need to be mounted above the radiator.

Do you have any more pictures from different angles? Always intrigued to see builds with the 5000D Hydro X Edition. 🙂

Keep us updated if you plan to switch the soft tubing!

It's not perfect but not bad for a second build and first hardloop attempt. Not sure if / when I will worry about the soft tube but I am already considering some changes. Considering moving the distro plate / pump to the MoBo tray and doing a more traditional intake fans / radiator front and exhaust fans radiator top. Also possibly push / pull on the top. So if I decide to do that I will try and fix the tubing at the same time.

I did add some filter material to the back of the case since it functions as an intake with no filter icluded at all.

The door I was complaining about.....I didn't realize until towards the end of building that it came off, duh....

Some pictures attached. The computer on the right is similar spec (MSI z490 - 10th gen i7) and is complete except I haven't found a GPU for it yet. 🥺

That's a pretty clean desk setup for two PC systems!

The rear fan mount is typically used to mount an exhaust fan, so a dust filter isn't normally needed - but I like that it's being used as an intake considering this is a custom watercooled build.

How does the custom distribution plate look from the front?
