Hello guys,

 

as I am pretty new to water cooling I wanted to ask if you can check my selected parts.

 

The PC has the following specs:

Phanteks Evolv X

Asus Maximus Hero Xi (WiFi)

i7 9700K

RTX 2080ti

1000 Watt beQuiet PSU

 

As I made good experiences with EK WB I wanted to stick with them for the most parts. If there is a better solution for any part, I'd like to here your recommendation.

 

Pump: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xtop-ddc-3-2-pwm-elite-acetal-incl-pump (must fit in the Basement, so no D5)

Reservoir: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-res-x3-250-lite

Radiator Front: https://www.alphacool.com/shop/radiatoren/radiatoren-aktiv/20474/alphacool-nexxxos-st30-full-copper-x-flow-360mm-Radiator (X-Flow, to get from the pump to the CPU block)

Radiator Top: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-coolstream-se-360-slim-triple

CPU Block: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-velocity-rgb-nickel-acetal

GPU Block: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-vector-rtx-2080-ti-rgb-nickel-acetal

Tubing: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-hd-tube-12-16mm-500mm-2-pcs

Fittings: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-hdc-fitting-16mm-g1-4-elox-black

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Greetings

am I allowed to ask about that motherboard?

I know it's a bit off topic, but why would you use that one?

I followed these steps:

1. Asus Board

2. WiFi

3. Not more than $350

 

So I decided between Strix 390-E and the Hero. Preferred look of the Hero :)

added the fittings ;)

Looks good. Do you have something to cut the tubes with and are you going to bend them or just do straight connections?

Nothing yet. I am buying the EK DIY Kit. Do you have any recommendations for cutting and bending? Don't want to use angled fittings to be honest.

The only good thing in the kit is the inserts.

Get something like this for cutting:

A good heat gun from your local hardware store on low to medium settings is what I would recommend for that. Take your time with the bends, measure a few times and order extra tubing to allow for mistakes. On medium or low heat I would hold the tube a few inches away and play with what allows for a nice even heating to time ratio. Turn slowly until the tube starts to bend under it's own weight. Move it back and forth and side to side as well, just a bit, to give you more area to play with. Don't dunk the tube in water to cool it off, hold it still and let it set for a minute.

and that first one is a bad step. have you watched the video? we're talking about a effective 4 phase power design. you can get a good asrock exteme4 (which used to be part of asus) or a gigabyte aorus board with a 12 phase for half the price...

Don't forget the GPU backplate if you're not using the stock one. Otherwise, it looks good! 

 

As a side note, we'll be launching the Maximus XI Hero monoblock in February, though I'm not 100% certain on the date.

Hi,

 

thanks for your reply. I will not forget the backplate :) I just ordered the Velocity D-RGB :( Is it possible to keep the motherboard lighting that covers the I/O panel or do I have to remove that when using the monoblock? And is the monoblock a D-RGB? :) 

 

Do you plan releasing an X-Flow Rad in the near future btw?

I'm not 100% sure yet. I believe the lighting can be kept. The monoblock should be an interchangeable design to where you can use single color or d-rgb from what I've been told. 

 

No plans mentioned for an X Flow though I wish we'd add it :/

Ok :) Yeah X-Flow would be nice :) 

 

Do you know if there will be a D-RGB version of the Vector GPU block?

I'm not certain. I know the strip in the end piece can be swapped out (the terminal shroud cannot be). I'll try to find out if we have plans to include D-RGB strips or something with it.

I hope you did not cancel your plans on a monoblock for the XI Hero 😮
