  • Biography
    I've been building and modding PC's since early 2016 and have developed quite the passion for it. I have built anything from a basic air cooled rig, to a complete custom hardline loop. I really enjoy helping others get into the PC community and help whenever possible.

  1. EK is a very good choice for watercooling parts, I use them a lot myself. I would like to mention Hardware Labs for radiators as well as Singularity Computers Protium pump/res combos along with the reservoir mounts. These are just parts that I've found to be the most useful and best performing in my systems. Otherwise everything from your list looks like a solid loop! As for starting with hardline, its perfectly do able and many have. Just plan to take more time for the build and buy extra tubing. Tutorials on bending will also be a great help when you are first starting out. Let me know if you'd like any further help with your build!
  2. Need advice, no flow in loop

    Never had any issues with Mayhems myself.
  3. Help me plan a custom loop

    Maybe you want to take a look at our complete watercooling kits featuring PETG tubing. We also sell all the individual components if you want to part out your own loop and see how the price compares. Let me know if you need any help planning your loop!
  4. PETG Build

    Yes, I apologize, our site did get flagged for Malware but the issue has been resolved, and we are just waiting for Google to re verify our website.
  5. PETG Build

    Looks great to me, only thing I might consider is using a rotary extension such as this one for your drain setup. That way you can rotate the drain and/or T fitting.
  6. PETG beginner.

    We sell a multitude of tools for rigid tubing if you want to check them out. However, I'd decide on tubing size first, as many tools are specific for the size of tubing that you use. For instance, I highly recommend the Primochill RFB for chamfering your tubes if you happen to use either 3/8" x 1/2" (also works with 10/12mm) or 1/2" x 5/8" (also works with 12/16mm) tubing. Or else you can get the traditional tube reamer like this one. You'll want a silicon bending insert and heat gun, of course. And you can check out these mandrel kits if you were interested in anything like that. Let me know if you need any other recommendations for tools, I'm happy to help!
  7. Where to buy EK parts?

    Thanks for mentioning PPCs W-L! If you, or anyone for that matter, needs assistance with your order from PPCs, feel free to get in touch with me. I can also get discount codes for 11% off an order of $250, if anyone needs one. Thanks again everyone!
  8. First water-cooling build

    The main reason I recommend the SR2's is for the fact that they offer some of the best silent cooling performance. At only 9fpi, these rads work really well with sub 800rpm fans. The multi port is a very nice feature though as well, and would not write it off. You can use the ports to help with bleeding depending on the configuration of your loop. With any of those radiators you suggested, you should easily be able to push your OCs very far and still have good performance and acoustics. The GTS line is also very good for silent cooling, being 16fpi. My only recommendation would be to consider using 16/12 fittings/tubing for your build since it is a pretty large system. 12/10 is easier to bend, however it sometimes looks small in larger builds, so it may be an aesthetic concern for you. Just thought I'd mention that.
  9. Black and white coolant

    Here's an updated chart for coolant/tubing compatibility
  10. Help me build a w/c setup

    No problem. Unless you can find ~42-43mm M3 or M4 screws, I would look at these 45mm ones and then use a couple washers or nylon spacers. You will have to check the radiator specs to see if it uses either M3 or M4 size screws. I would say any kit with at least a 240mm (30mm thick) radiator would do you just fine. But it's never a bad idea to have more cooling than necessary. And with the fans you want to use, you could easily use a 60mm thick high FPI radiator if you have the room. Let me know if I can help any further! Thank you!
  11. Primochill 90 Degree Fittings?

    EK also makes a dual rotary 90: http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-af-angled-2-45-g1-4-nickel.html
  12. Help me build a w/c setup

    I'd highly recommend checking out some of the kits we have to offer, we have a large variety of CPU only loops, including some rigid tubing options as well. You can find all of our kits here: http://www.performance-pcs.com/complete-kits
  13. Front or Top Radiator mounting?

    This is a very informational and helpful video that should answer your questions.
  14. New Watercooling Loop

    Get 30mm thick radiators then You can find all of ours here: http://www.performance-pcs.com/radiators/shopby/radiator-thickness--30mm/ I personally recommend Hardware Labs Radiators for their build quality and performance, not to mention, they are pretty clean right out of the box as well!
