I do believe the only things missing are time and patience required to build it all without leaks; it looks to be a solid selection of parts with no obvious signs of anything being missing. :toast:


You should also post some pictures of the build after you complete it.



p.s. any plans of a full cover block for the GPU?

what is the temp you guys expect it gonna be? my h115i keeps 9900ks around 60-70 during gaming and low 80 in stress test. Gpu hits 72 during gaming.

The fans for the radiators ;-)
And like XL-R8R said, the GPU block. Or do you want to use an air-cooled GPU?

To use your drain valve, which is a good idea, you need some adapter with male thread like this one:

This is also a nice brand making good water blocks, I have the one for the RTX 2080:

what is the temp you guys expect it gonna be?
For the cpu I would estimate low 60, for the GPU middle 50. My 2080 stays in low 50 in gaming and as your card draws more watts I would say temps get a little higher. But not much more as your rads are bigger ;-)

For the pump, I have not received it yet so I dont know how to set up the drain. I thought there are only 1 inlet and 1 outlet or there is more so I can plug the fitting and the drain in that hole.

According to your article from Titanrig, this is a Reservoir/Pump combo, so you don‘t need an extra pump as it is included. There are 6 ports at the reservoir for inlet and outlet, 3 at the bottom and three at the top. You can use one of the bottom ports as drain port, the other two as inlet and outlet. At the top you can fill your reservoir. But as your drain valve has two female threads you need an adapter with two male threads to plug it in. You can‘t use the fitting to plug the drain, fittings are only for tubes.

Edit:
It‘s also to consider if you want to use a tube at your drain valve to drain water. If so you could use a second male to male adapter to tighten a fitting at your drain valve where you can plug the tube.

anyone know if custom loop makes the system runs cooler so can we lower the cpu voltage or no matter how cool it is, the cpu still needs the same voltage to be stable.

The cooler the system, the less the electric resistance and the less voltage you need.

What is going on guys? I flushed with distilled water and nothing happen but when I put the EK premix coolant and so many bubbles and crap stuff. Is it normal and will go away with time?

Just flushed out again and added more new coolant and its clear now. But why when I turn off the power, the water coming to the rad just stop. Does it mean the whole loop not full?

air trapped in the loop, that is normal it will go away soon. Try to tilt the case back and forth until the air back to the resERVOIR.

I use EK Premix also, like HUSKIE said, that's normal. Let the pump run for a while and the bubbles go away.

Do we need to fill the reservoir full or just as it is now?

Eek, what's that gunk or residue? Or is that part of the premix?

I generally fill it and the trapped air will eventually make its way to the res over time giving you an air gap. If you don't fill, just monitor the water line and if it gets low top it off.

I have it 1-2cm higher than you have, but not more. Leave the reservoir open till all air is out, so 1 week should be enough, then close it.

You don't have to leave it open and leaving it like so for a week is crazy. As I wrote above, trapped air will make it to the res. NO NEED to leave loop open.

You don't have any fans for the rads shown but don't know how you have it setup.
If you need them you know what to do.

Nevermind - Missed the OP date and You already have it going so..... :D

Ok, I did it to make sure to release pressure, then I closed it.

Don't bother about the air trapped, as I said it will go away soon, don't fill the Res all the way just leave some gap, don't open the cover just leave it close. It will take sometime, 1 week is too much. Based on my experience it will take 2-3days, it depends how long you using the pc.

Something is wrong guys. The gpu is perfect at 55c max during stress but cpu hit 80 during aida64. Even worse than h115i platinum. I know its gonna happen like that. I usually have problem with cpu block except corsair.

If GPU is fine as it’s in the same Loop I assume, then cpu should be fine also. Did you install waterblock properly? Which block do you use for cpu?
