I have a RTX 3090 and a 3900X, on a ROG Strix X570 E-Gaming MOBO with 4 sticks of RAM.

 

I'm trying to plan out things to watercool:

Monoblock - CPU & VRMs

RAM

Chipset

M.2

GPU

 

Is there anything else that I'm forgetting?

Chippsets these days don't really need water cooling, however one could argue that stock heatsinks suck and something better is needed. M.2 drives wile may run hot would benefit just as much from a good heatsink. Ram? Ddr4 runs rather cool unlike high speed ddr2 did back in the day so I'd cross that one off your list too.

audio chip on the mobo, if you dare.

 

don't forget to water cool your self. Stay hydrated gamer!

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

how do you watercool pcie slots or audio chip?

 

i wouldn't watercool PSU, that screams danger

pcie slots is a bit ridiculous but you can get a water cooled PSU.

We were joking. Water cooled PSUs were at one time somewhat common among the DIYer however.

Monoblock - CPU & VRMs

You could get a monoblock for your motherboard but I feel like a motherboard like the X570 Aqua would definitely look much cooler.

Monoblock - CPU & VRMs|| Ok

RAM||  Not much point

Chipset||   sure

M.2||   too much cooling can be detrimental to the storage/ram chips, though cooling the controller is probably ideal, watercooling sounds a bit much though

GPU||    Yes (I've been fantasizing about a sandwich watercooled 3090FE😆)

I wouldn't reccomend water cooling an M.2. Ideally they run a fair bit warmer than ambient.

Leetle water block and some double sided thermal tape

Could even get a g1/4 to 1/8in step down fitting or distribution plate and a bunch of raspberry pi cooling blocks to independently cool each vrm.

I do everything but the m.2 as the rig doesnt support them really. And on my newer build the mobo is too low end to have blocks made. 

But thats just enough blocks to not make it too hectic for plumbing. Could make some custom backplates for the gpu. Depending on the card that could be really beneficial.
