  1. EK's compatibility tool says p5000 works with a 1080 short top though, and I believe they use the same, or close to the same PCB as the p6000. Can't find a PCB picture of the p6000 to check though
  2. EK's MLC lineup has QDC's on both hoses I believe, at least it looks like it on the pictures
  3. EK makes good blocks. It's almost like water just erodes stuff..
  4. Haven't heard of more EK fittings leaking than any other brand..
  5. Maybe flip the rad so the ports are at the top, then go pump > rad > CPU > Gpu (Drain port here) > Res in ?
  6. no. 1050ti's are bad cards.
  7. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Bykski-A-MS58GMX-X-Full-Cover-Graphics-Card-Water-Cooling-Block-For-MSI-RX580-Armor/32926543078.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.2.1d2610c8X58ukq&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_6_10065_10068_319_317_10696_10084_453_10083_454_10618_10304_10307_10820_10821_537_10302_536_10902_10059_10884_10887_321_322_10103,searchweb201603_16,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=1878807f-ac64-40aa-82c4-e5309aa661ae-0&algo_pvid=1878807f-ac64-40aa-82c4-e5309aa661ae Basically no uses reference PCB for the 580 from what I know, so you need a block specifically for your card, which is why there are so many and why EK doesn't bother. The above one fits an Armor 580, so should be fine I think?
  8. While some brands make things better than others, there isn't really any of the main brands that straight up suck at one of them. You'll be better off buying from different brands, but a full EK, or full Alphacool loop will still perform just fine
  9. EK, Alphacool, and Swiftech are all mainstream EU/US companies. If you're fine with chinese companies, Bykski is also pretty good, but shipping takes forever. If it's your first loop, you can always try buying a kit with the blocks/rads you want, and you'll be sure everything is there. You can also do what @Cyracus said and just buy full "random" stuff from Aliexpress
  10. The 3 fan splitter is where to plug in the fans, so they don't go into the board
  11. I'll agree with Neftex. Seems oddly CPU-heavy for a gaming rig. I'd recommend dropping to a 9600k and 16gb of RAM if you plan on sticking with a 1070ti (can even upgrade the GPU at that point). That is, unless you're trying to play games at 720p 500 FPS, then you probably need the 9900k to handle the load, but.. Why would you do that?
  12. Yeah, they have a huge selection of blocks. It's actually quite interesting just how many different ones they have, considering the time and money it must take to get a new one R&D'd
  13. If you don't have the pads needed, then don't put a pad on. EK says you need a pad 0.5mm thicker than on the VRM on those caps(?), so if you don't have those, then don't put a pad on them
  14. Apparently not listing a budget means you have an unlimited one
