    EK Custom Loop high temps

    Are you P-state overclocking? This can drastically reduce your idle temperatures. And Load temperatures will depend on your Vcore voltage and how aggressive or not your LLC is. Personally I recommend HWinfo64 to monitor your temperatures, RealBench for a whole system stress test, P95 blend for CPU only stress test, and Furmark for GPU only stress test.

    emptied and refilled custom loop and now have foam

    Did you clean it with detergent?

    custom loop question?

    This is known as a parallel loop configuration. The flow will be uneven across the gpu and cpu, but given the pump is powerful enough is not a problem.

    Going All Out (BTTW)

    RAM cooling is not getting you anything apart from looks, and honestly youll only see a couple of degrees improvement from the 360 mm radiator. The only thing thay would be "worth it" in my opinion is if you put your gpy under water.

    my cpu is overheating

    Turn the pump on?
  6. After travelling over a Threadripper 2990WX overclocked to 4 GHz and the VRM to keep that stable, the fluid temperature increases by 1 degrees on my system. So as usual, order is not important, even after passing over a tonne of heat generating components

    Parts on the way for loop, any advice?

    Multiple reservoirs have no functional purpose. 2 pumps in series can be helpful but is often not required for standard loops using good quality pumps. Only if you have a real stinker of a pump and/or an incredibly restrictive loop, is it worth even considering. (and if the pump is a stinker, instead of having 2 stinkers, better have 1 decent one). I personally wouldn't use soapy water to rinse new components, hot tap water followed by water is my go to for new components. Soap could do not so great things for O-rings (since they are usually a bit oily) and reserve it for deep maintenance only. Air is never good for any system, so the ideal scenario is to completely fill up the system and have absolutely no air. Keep topping off the liquid until there is literally no bubbles whatsoever. This also prevents coolant degradation in some cases.
  8. Macro photography anyone?

      it always bothered me with electronics macro-shots/b-rolls shows how the dust just settles in at all the random spots , never seen a clean picture of an unboxed product ever.

      Yes its so true. This shot was even after a quick wipe, but the lighting catches so many specks.

    Sides of bends bulging

    You're bending the tube slightly too cold and also too narrow around the bend region, you need to heat up a larger region (i.e. more side-to-side)

    Graphics card for birthday present,

    For a single graphics card system, a non-blower will be worth the $10, So I would think the MSI Armor is the way to go. Also they tend to receive waterblocks so more options down the line,

    What causes a loop to leak?

    Not using port extenders in recessed ports is my number one for a slow leak. Apart from that ive cracked acrylic by overtightening a screw too. Both are user error.

    High idle CPU temps after cleaning radiator

    I assume you moved the radiator to a lower point than the CPU block during the cleaning procedure, this may have moved an air pocket from the radiator into the pump block that needs to be moved around so that the CPU block is submerged in fluid and able to move liquid again. You should shake the system around and if possible shake the cpu/pump block while the radiator is in a higher position.

    Can I get away with one rad

    Room temperature will always have an effect on how efficiently you can cool your system, air or liquid, nothing changes. (Because watercooled components are not actually cooled by water, its cooled by water that's being cooled by air). Watercooling lets you increase the surface area for dissipation by utilizing water as a medium to transfer the heat from one location to another. Doing watercooling with a small radiator will perform worse than a large aircooler.

    Custom loop components check

    The 1000D is such a stupidly large case that your pc is going to look minature unless you fill it up with fat radiators and big reservoirs... Even my 900D build with four graphics cards and lots of radiators still look like you can rent it out to a single student for 500 euros a month

    [Poseidon] A relic from the past? - Quad 1080Ti

    Honestly, don't know since its a linux workstation, but I would imagine the Nvidia drivers won't play nice with the graphics cards (or at least 2 of them would be completely paperweights).
