The Water Cooling Gallery

My new rig, completed yesterday.

 

Hardware:

Case: Corsair 600C inverted case

CPU: Intel i7 6700K @ 4.7Ghz

Memory: Corsair vengeance DDR4 2666Mhz

GPU: EVGA GTX1080

Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth Z170 S

SSD: Intel p600 M.2 NVMe 512Gb

 

Loop:

EK Water Blocks EK-FC1080 GTX - Nickel

Water Heatkiller IV Pro Intel - Clean acrylic

EK Water Blocks EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM - Plexi (incl. pump)

2 x Black Ice Nemesis Radiator GTS 280 - Satin White

Phobya 250mm reservoir

304 grade Stainless Steel 16mm o/d 13mm i/d tubing

Fill and drain ports

Alphacool and EK fittings

 

Will post temps when my CPU block back plate comes, it seems as though in the current configuration the CPU heats up very quickly.

 

The GPU idles at about 25 degrees though.

Well, I've scrapped the carbon fiber idea, sadly. Sorry for the hype lol. I just don't think it's going to work. The resin on the interior of the matte tubing is not up to par, or even close. And while the glossy sample seems to have good internal resin, it's OD is actually more like 15.5ish mm, and I don't trust that.

So, now I'm back to using borosilicate glass.

Maybe @B NEGATIVEshould add this info to the hardline workshop sticky for reference. Not sure if anyone else has attempted carbon fiber who could weight in on it.

CF works just fine. The tolerance is acceptable,get a small test sample and try it out before just scrapping it.

 

I am just awaiting my CF tube for the S Frame im doing.

I haven't tested it yet, so, it's not completely scrapped but, it might be.

We'll see with the test sample. 

Also, there's a user on OCN who used the S-Frame with matte carbon fiber tubing.

Here is my system:

 

Yes it is build in/on a Corsair 400R. I wasn't happy with the coolant color, I ordered black but it turned out to be purple... sad. Maybe this will be changed to mayhems pastel.

There will be a second gpu in there, and when i get the money, i will also watercool those.

Set-up:

CPU: FX-8150

GPU: Powercolor 7870 PCS+

SSD's: Samsung 830 (256 GB), Crucial M4 (128 GB)

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 (sadly a rev 1.0, no llc :()

PSU: Coolermaster M850

Watercooling:

rad: Phobya G-changer 280 60mm

cpu: EK-supremacy nickel-plexi

tubing: tygon 3/8" tubing

coolant: feser one (not so) black

res: Phobya Balancer 150

pump: MCP655 (swiftech)

I LOVE the look of that external Rad!

My i7 4790k is going up to 80°C on stock, while GPU is around 49°C under full load in same loop.

Not sure if CPU backplate will help you lowering your temps ... probbably need delidding :)

Another dodgy rig of mine, "The Toxic Tower of not much Power".

 

Temps stay under 70C (GPU/CPU) all day use. with no radiator just single fan cooling reservoir from beneath. This was designed to be silent, it did not need water cooling whatsoever as it's old gear at standard clocks (for now), I built this as a Rocket League machine plus a place to put my upcycled tech.

Here's some pictures of the build progress. I'm debating on where I want to mount the reservoir and pump. I'm thinking in the secondary chamber on the case, for noise isolation and keeping the main chamber from looking cluttered.

_DSC0400.jpg_DSC0405.jpg_DSC0406.jpg_DSC0408.jpg_DSC0409.jpg_DSC0410.jpg_DSC0412.jpg

Ordered some more cable combs for the two on the GPU. Though I might sell the 1080's and upgrade to 1080 Ti's, though that's not 100% yet. Already sinking enough money into this build, don't need to put in more really :P

I've started messing with the glass tubing, including bending and frosting it for the light dispersion when the build lights are on. The glass panels should be done in a week or two, and I'm going to have my two radiators, some case panels, and some internal parts, all cerakoted in a few days so that they match the silver finish of the RAM, monoblock, cable-clips, and SLI bridge.

Helle here is my RIG

Gigabyte x99 extreme Gaming Mainboard

Intel i7 6850K @ 5 Ghz

2 EVGA GTX 1080 SC with Waterblock from Aquacomputer ( Germany ) within active cooled backplate. 2200 Mhz GPU and 5500 Mhz Memory

Pump is an Aquacomputer aquastream ultimate

as radiator i use two selfmade steal spirals and an industrial radiator with 3 be quiet 140mm volume optimated fans

my reservoir is an 20L Airtank.

fittings ad piping is normally used for pneumatics.

 

i know the cable management is a mess but may case is not made to have a look inside ^^

 

after 8 hours of playing For Honor in Ultra Settings with 4K resoulution water temperature is at 32°C and i had a max GPU Core temp of 40°C on full load and CPU stays at 35°C

So my glass panels for the case came in. Here's some more pre-finished shots. All my parts should be coming soon that were getting cerakoted. And I'll be pre-building the loop using PETG, mailing it out to Mayhem's, and they'll make glass tubes to mail to me pre-shaped.
