Should of specified, that is turbo clock speed as is thr gpu clock.

As a side note, pre watercooling had the following throttling:

Cpu: down to 1.6ghz

Gpu: down to 678mhz

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.

Best fans to this date. A worthy heir to the Scythe GT's, if you have the money.

Hi all,

 

Inspired by Linus I put my desktop and NAS in a fancy server rack. I watercooled the desktop by supending the two 360PE radiators in a selfmade 2U contraption out of wood. The NAS is passively cooled and completely silent. The bottom drawer (containing power cords, ethernet switch and other pc stuff) is also selfmade out of wood, as is the platform the rack sits on. Due to the shitty airflow of this setup watercooling was kinda necessary, and I'm still working on some extra fans to actively refresh the air inside the rack. But I think this setup looks pretty cool. ?

Finally received GPU block from Fluid gaming. I have 9700k and vega 64. It is a fluid gaming that started as an 240. purchased 2 360mm rads and a bunch of fittings. I used like 5 to get the side rad tubes where I could manage them. I am wanting to do hardline now but I am going to make myself wait for a little while. Maybe get the stuff to bend and practice since I want multiple 90s on each tube in liquidhaus style. 

Could use some custom extensions, another uv strip for the front. Sorry about green text I don't know why it did that.

here are nine O11 builds.. (in german with english subs) for some tubing thoughts

My Asus X99-A motherboard died a week ago and is replaced with an Asus X99 Sabertooth. Not really much has changed on the loop except that I had to go back using my EK Supremacy EVO CPU block. Had to mount it with the logo upside down so I wouldn't have to switch the tubings going in the GPU on the bottomside. 

Also, replaced the Thermatake Riing fans for Corsair's LL120 and a new color mixed from Mayhem's UV ice blue and a little bit of laser green.

This is my first watercooled build in the NZXT H700 (full parts list at bottom). Indeed it is my first pc build, if you discount the ones I helped with in 1995 when I was 4. 

I crammed a 60mm x 360mm radiator in the front in push-pull, and a regular 30mm x 360mm in the top, also in push-pull.

Frustratingly, push-pull clearance is not supported for any top rad unless you have clearance to have fans hanging down over your ram. The gSkill Trident-Z RGB's are 45mm tall, which may clear the fans here, but why even buy RGB ram if you can't see the damn thing. Your aesthetics go right out the window! In this build, the pull side of the fans on the top rad, outside of the case, protrude above the resting elevation of the top cover by 15mm (so the top cover is a no-go).

This was an after-the-fact addition. I'm sure the rad would have performed just fine with just nf-f12's in push, however the airflow in the case suffered and thus the performance suffered on the monster 360 in the front, and thus the performance of the whole loop suffered, and it makes for a cranky first-time builder. That's why I added Arctic F12's in pull on top.

The full-cover GPU blocks were bought at different times, and one was half-off, I assume because it was part of the last-gen phoenix modular-series thing that EK does (phoeniz MLC). I'm not buying a matching one for the nicer one!

 

Performance note: I was able to overclock my delidded 8700k to 5400MHz on four cores and 5300MHz on the remaining two. AVX offset -3.

Under non-avx Prime95, peak CPU core temps saturate to 75 C.

Under avx Prime95, peak CPU core temps saturate to 86 C. P sweet.

1080's dont get very hot under gaming loads, however I am a computer science student and I do quite a bit of long-run machine learning stuff. Under extended loads I will not see over 45 C on these cards.

PC Parts:

  1. MOBO: Asus Z370-E

  2. CPU: i7-8700K

  3. DDR4: 2x16GB GSkill 3200 and 2x16GB Teamgroup 3200

  4. GPU: 2x GTX 1080 reference pcb (one is an msi aero oc, the other a founder's)

  5. DISK: Samsung 970 Pro 500GB (and 32GB optane, seen in pics, I'm not using it though I'm gonna take it out)

  6. DISK: Toshiba 1TB NVMe (the one that comes in a dell xps. Dunno the part number)

  7. PSU: Corsair HX1200i

  8. CASE: NZXT H700

Watercooling Parts:

  1. PUMP: 2x alphacool laing d5 rebrand (VPP655) in a EK-XTOP Revo Dual D5 Serial

  2. CPU/VRM: EK Asus Z370 Strix monoblock

  3. RADS: EK CoolStream XE 360; EK CoolStream SE 360

  4. GPU: EK-FC Geforce GTX 1080 FE (Acetal); EK-FC Pheonix 1080 full-cover (Acetal) that used to ship with EK'sPhoenix thing, I don't think this one is the MLC version,I think this is last-gen

  5. RES: Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Pro 25 LT (250mm)

  6. TUBING: Mayhems

  7. FLUID: Mayhems pastel solid white

  8. FANS:

    1. 6x Noctua nf-f12's in push-pull on CoolStream XE

    2. 3x Noctua nf-f12's in push on CoolStream SE; 3x Arctic F12 PWM in pull on same

    3. 1x Noctua nf-a14 for exhaust

  9. FITTINGS: Alphacool; mixture of expensive Eiszapfen and regular-old cheap ones

Hey guys, 

 

So this will be my first attempt at water cooling and I'm just now starting the process. My current setup is:

  • EVGA 1080 TI FTW3 w/AIO Kit
  • Intel 8700K w/AIO Kit
  • ASUS Maximus X Formula
  • 32 GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4

I'll be upgrading to a newly ordered EVGA 2080 TI FTW3 HydroCopper, and plan on using all EKWB parts with soft tubing. A picture of the new card and my current build are attached.

 

I'm currently on a two month work trip, so wont be able to start building the new loop until March, but enjoy the pics thus far and I'll keep u all updated as I progress!

Looking forward to the build.  Post a link to the build log.

I can't recommend EK ZMT tubing enough.  

If you are going to go for soft tubing, that is the way to go!

 

Let us know if you have any other questions!

if you'll use 7/16" id hose on 1/2" barbs, you wont need ties or clamps. you'll have to cut the hose off the barb to refit.

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.
