Not all radiators especially slim radiators have this spacing.
OIC , I like em thiiiick.

Ye another reason why water cooling is not worth it: you either have to care about / optimize every little detail, or your $150 investment ends-up being worse than a 140mm tower cooler
$150??? I'm at like $600

>.>

Cost me like $500 Au just for the GPU blocks, then the pump, hoses, rad, coolant, 3 lots of fittings...
It aint cheap unless you get lucky with second hand parts, or expandable kits (rare to have good ones)

Yes, I agree. It is a nice hobby but an expensive one.

150€ is only a waterblock for GPU. :laugh:

For the CPU and GPU blocks alone one can pay between 250-300€ or even more.
Then comes pump and reservior which can cost additional 150€.
Radiators in my case three EK PE of 1x120mm, 1x240mm, 1x360mm cost about 235€.
The 6 EK Vardar fans alone cost about 140€. :D
We are still missing fittings, tubing, liquid ,sensors, etc.
I think it cost me all together around 850-900€.

I posted the photo previously for my watercooled OC rig.
It has a Radeon 6900XTU Liquid Devil Ultimate and AMD 5900X under the blocks. :D

Previoulsy was 6800XT reference watercooled, but it got damaged with ESD issue and I went for 6900XTU after that.

It is not the most beautiful at the moment. :rolleyes:
Last time I did it little bit quick and dirty.
Next time when I have time want to re-arrange some things especially the tube going over the upper edge of RAM.

View attachment 207102 Nice selection of parts, Fens are misplaced as they all draw air into the cases. The front fans would be good to turn.:)

@bogam

Thanks.
No all fan on radiators are all pushing the air out of the case through rads. :rolleyes:
The two fans at bottom of the case are pulling fresh air into the case.
