The Water Cooling Gallery

Recommended Posts

My first watercooling build. Started planning when I got addicted to LTT :P 

It's just a soft tubing custom loop in a 200cmx60cm desk. I'm still lacking a molex extension cable, so only one of the 3 fans on the EK XE360 is turning at the moment. 
When I do so, I'll also comb most of the cables and do a better cable management job.

In the future, I'll get a better GPU. Waiting for 1180...I'll also add two more M.2 SSDs and go raid 0.

Specs: 
i7-8700k
Aorus Gaming 7 Z370 motherboard
G.Skill Trident Z 3200 MHz (16GB total)
EK monoblock
EK XE 360
EK D5 combo RGB PWM pump
Samsung 970 EVO

6x EK Furious Vardar 3000RPM fans. 3 on the radiator, 3 as 'case fans' next to the motherboard.

do you class this as finished? whats with your camera?

Not much to look at, but here are some in-development pictures of my build. i7-7700k and a Titan XP in the loop, all inside of a Node 202 case. At first the thermal results were a little disappointing. I switched the fans to be between the GPU and the radiator pushing air out the bottom of the case and now it works great. It fits with all of the exterior shell of the case being unmodified. Pretty happy with the results. 

It looks great. Can I see more details? I have a similar plan on my 202 and I saw you used full sized fans and rad. How did you make it? Any build logs?

No, not yet. But I was so happy I got a working PC again (leak-free on first attempt!) with water cooling that I wanted to share. Regarding my camera, I only have a (rather disappointing) phone camera. When I finish the desk, if I share pictures again, I'll ask if I can borrow a better camera. 

 

There's still quite a bit of cable clutter. I want to get cable combs and make work of that. Depending on the results, I might add a bit more wood. I have some leftover cuts. If I'm not satisfied with just combing, I'm likely to essentially add a 'shelf' in the space near the front panel and PSU to hide the worst of the clutter. The front panel backside (first picture, bottom left) isn't pleasing to look at anyway. I also have an old ssd and hdd in there. These will be replaced by a M.2 SSD. They're from our old shared computer and we were still offloading data (and a Doctor Who archive). So that's the likely first upgrade I will perform, if I can find some time.

 

And I'm planning to get a new videocard, likely from the new nvidia lineup, and put that on watercooling as well.  (The reason I'm waiting is because I'm saving up) .When I do so, I will also add an extra 90 degree fitting to the pump. I didn't think I use one on the T-split for the drain, but I did. As a result, the soft tube coming up from the pump outlet towards the CPU is slightly bending due to the glass and would be better with an angled fitting.

I still have some work to do like the psu shroud but I'm pretty satisfied so far.

 

More detail on the build log

The only time RGB barf and UV should ever go together. Ever. (Unless it's just your camera making the fluid look like it's UV reactive, but it still looks dank as hell so who cares.)

Yes it is UV reactive but I don't have any UV lights, the effect is only due to the blue light of the rgb. I like it better this way

What top rad do you have and how much ram clearance do you have between it and the fans ?

That's an interesting question - feedback for an 8 year old system. I didn't even plan for that (I'm hoping to get 5).  I'm just going to look at the pictures and fire off some suggestions.  

 

I find the old-school fan grills on the XSPC (assume radiator?) actually quite interesting. But it is white, a paint job might be an amusing idea. Next to it, the bay-cage thing looks quite horrid as does the unfilled rack of drives. But that's just the old case showing.

 

In the second image, one of the fittings looks quite dirty. Clean it :D Beyond that, more evidence of the time/effort/planning you put in hardline tubing. Is that a RAM cooler? One thing that bothers me here is again the drive bay. What I'm thinking off as a solution, if you just want to change this slightly, is the plexiglas stuff JPModified uses. It is apparently quite cheap and you could use it to cover the backside of things and the screw-holes on the bay. Just give it a shroud, basically. 

 

Next image: The grey cable stands out, as does the non-sleeved cable on the right. Might be worth it to sleeve them, although I'm starting to wonder at this point whether or not you have a window :P In this image, there msotly seems to be some chaos in the top right, which might just be because of the cable-management options of the case. 

 

It is extremely impressive. Basically, most of my comments are about the old case :)

Hey guys just wanted to share my PC. I put a lot of time and work and planning into this. It's almost done just awaiting a PSU cover and a custom GPU backplate. Also have a few more cables to sleeve.

 

here is the backplate I am awaiting.

 

Specs? What rads are in the top and front? push / push/pull? what case?

Got some more ram in there and no longer barfing rainbows. It also looked good with white edge lighting but the red turned out better on my crappy iphone camera. I need to get a decent camera one of these days..
