Description

This is my first foray into the world of custom water cooling. I may have made things a little harder on myself with a few of the choices I made considering the case I was building in but I got it done! (PE thickness rad in front and the use of the Tube 250 Res and larger 16mm tubing)

Custom Loop Parts: EK Supremacy Evo (CSQ), Barrow GTX Strix 10 series waterblock, EK XRES-140 D5 Combo with EK Multiport Top and EK Tube 250, EK Black Nickle and Nickle Fittings, 16mm OD EK PETG Tubing, EK SE240 x1 and PE360 x1, Thermaltake Pacific TF1

I had to scrap the EK pump mount and use L-brackets to mount the res/pump to the floor of the case due to me using the slightly thicker PE360 in the front and my Strix 1080 being so long and there being no room for it. I also shifted the top rad back about 6.5mm to give myself some more room around the res fittings at the top of the PE360. To do this I had to slightly lengthen one of the top fan/rad mounting slots on the case and drill an extra hole to line up with another hole in the EK rads shroud.

Perfect looking loop. Sharp angles, clean bends, nice placement. One of the best I've seen in a long time.

Thank you! I was a bit nervous as well but it wasn't too complicated. I've been watching youtubers like Jayz2cents for years. Theres so much easy to follow videos out there with all you need to know. The only things I worried about was running out of tubing as I was hand bending everything and the two cpu runs took me a couple tries since they are so tight and I was worried about doing the fittings correctly. I only had one leak and that was one of the ports on the rad was loose probably from putting on my rotary 90 and moving it around. But it was an easy fix and thats what the leak test is for, theres no power running to anything in the system when you jump the 24pin except for your pump. If something gets wet just let it sit and dry and its fine. You can do it!!
