The Water Cooling Gallery

Recommended Posts

One summer about 10 years ago I decided my computer was too noisy. I "fixed" it with an aquarium pump and a Ford Fiesta heater core. Given that there was 5 gallons of coolant the heater core was probably not necessary. I just  stumbled across the photo and thought it might amuse people.

You have mad skills. Ty for being one of the people who started watering cooling.

Was having trouble keeping GPU cool so decided to add some water.

 

CPU: i7 8700

GPU: GTX 1080ti Gigabyte Aorus

RAM: 2 x 8GB 2666MHz Kingston HyperX Savage

SSD1: 512GB Samsung 970 Pro

SSD2: 512GB Samsung 960 Pro

MB: Gigabyte Z370XP SLI

PSU: 650W Seasonic Prime Titanium

CASE: Fractal Define C

 

CPU BLOCK: Byski B-XPR-B-CU

GPU BLOCK: Byski N-GV1080TIXT-X

PUMP RES COMBO: Byski B-PMD3-COV+CT66

PUMP MOUNTS: EKWB DDC Anti-Vibration

RAD1: Barrow Dabel-A360

RAD2: Barrow Dabel-A240

FANS: Noctua NF A12x25 PWM

TUBE: EKWB ZMT 15.9/9.5

FITTINGS: Barrow TB3C-02

CLAMPS: 16mm Spring

COOLANT: Distilled water edit:(Had to add some EK CryoFuel to keep water clean)

 

Running fans & pump at 30% I can barely hear a thing and can't hit thermal limits maxing out both CPU & GPU with simultaneous stress tests. Ready for summer when ambient room temp will raise to around 40 deg Celsius.

This is neat! I'm going to build something very similar, same case, same raditors, don't realize the Define C is so small. How would you drain your loop in this setup?

 

I'm considering mount the reservior in rear fan location ... but its really tight!

I'm not sure but I can only count five instead of seven extension brackets, which could mean that this is a Define C Mini (microATX) instead of the ATX Define C.

 

Nice build nonetheless, really appreciate the matte tubing. I'd love to start a watercooled build in the Define C Mini - two 280 rads, parallel loop, reservoir pump combo mounted horizontal to the psu shroud, ZM tubing... 😍 Similar to this: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/b/Rp3bt6 in terms of the res mount

hell yes for small formfactor watercooling! looks absolutely beautifull. what are te temps like with all glass panels installed? i would imagine having the second rad relying on case pressure would need for all glass to be installed?

Have not booted it yet, spilled some water while filling it up, waiting to let it dry. Better be safe than sorry. Got 2 fans on each side as an intake.

Can not tell anything about temps, the top glas is actually lifted by 10mm to have natural path for heat to escape. Will post more pictures and results then finished and oc’d

This is my toy,

Specs are 

Gigabyte b700 psu

Gigabyte z170 gaming 3 mobo

6600k oc to 4.6 GHz

16gb vengeance lpx ram @3000mhz

1070 hybrid

2x 1tb Western digital blues 

1 850 Evo 256gb SSD

Water-cooling is a full kit from thermaltake with the d5 pump and I added 3x deepcool rgb fans, they stay a static colour but I do change it sometimes.

I also have the nzxt on the back of the chassis to light up the corner, chassis is the thermaltake p3 and a 7 inch raspberry pi screen for temp stats running cam
