  1. For the time and money it would cost to rig up what you think,You could buy a 360 aio if not two of them.
  2. Email antec and ask whats the warranty coverage of their aios
  3. And ek tr4 blocks are not known to be the best cooling for the socket either.
  4. Exhaust in the top is fine,And push or pull is up to you.It makes zero different cooling which way you do it.
  5. I would skip it,If its a oem case a lot of them used micro atx boards,Most cases back then had really bad airflow vs today.And the fans are 80mm the biggest.
  6. How cold is the room you keep the pc in ?
  7. Or buy a cheap motherboard tray like this https://www.ebay.com/i/174031488364?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=174031488364&targetid=883564623986&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9014233&poi=&campaignid=6469750549&mkgroupid=93041470030&rlsatarget=pla-883564623986&abcId=1141176&merchantid=6296724&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkeit7riw6AIVR4VaBR3RpQgIEAQYASABEgJYpfD_BwE Then just ghetto rig up a cardboard box over it with fans,Or find a cheap used test bench/mining rig frame and use that
  8. If you want less headaches clear coolant,And use color tubing and rgb blocks and res.
  9. Being its a custom pcb you have two options,Ek or bitspower and really both are even so pick whats look best to you.
  10. I have seen a am3 cooler bracket plastic thing break.And the pc ran fine for 20 mins hit thermo load and shut down,After the bracket was replaced it ran prefectlly fine for years after this.They are right you can boot with out a cooler and won't hurt it at all.
  11. The green you see is just the block being clear and has a green cutting mat under it
  12. Which 2080ti do you have?Reason i ask not all cards have waterblocks for them,Or your options are very limited if its a custom aib card.
  13. Where are you from tho ?Most places in the usa distilled water is very easy to get.A lot of cpap machine run on distilled water and a lot of people need those machines to sleep good.
  14. The res looks low in that picture,Is the water level higher then half way ?
  15. Monsoon has a dual bay one that has lights in if that matters to you,A easy to fill one would be alphacool with its fill port on the front of it
  16. this is powder coating They can do it to anything metal,The short answer its like paint but a lot stronger and harder coating.
  17. Bykski and barrow are great budget brands and live up to ek standards.A friend of mine has a Bykski vega 64 nitro block,It runs cooler then a blower card with a ek block.That alone impressed me since that nitro runs faster and hotter then a blower card does.
  18. Just remember keep it simple and as straight as you can and life is good.
  19. As thin as a aio rad is really any fans will work.
  20. ek has wooden looking blocks and fittings https://www.ekwb.com/custom-loop/lignum-wooden-line/ There is a ball res pump https://www.alphacool.com/alphacool-eisball-digital-rgb-ball-reservoir https://www.performance-pcs.com/water-cooling/combo-pump-reservoir/optimus-absolute-reservoir-system-acrylic-5-75-d5-included.html
  21. I know im bumping a older post but ek has one chipset block now https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-momentum-chipset-aorus-x570
  22. Do not buy nothing from thermaltake for water cooling.Their cpu block cools the worse,There rads are low end and their coolant is trash.The gpu block is copper with nickel plating over for looks,Copper and nickel will play fine together its Aluminum thats the problem metal.If you want a good rad go hardware labs a good cpu block anything from heatkiller.And coolant mayhems or ek.
