    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    YES! I did this, for example: It's showing that a single loop can serve two systems, one Threadripper 3960X + Radeon RX 5700 XT and, in series, one Ryzen 2 3900X + GeForce RTX 2080 ti. In this case, a double series (not paraleel), but showing that things can be done despite what the "experts"...

    The Z Build 2.0

    ...you don't realize how much one can spend in fans until... you buy them all!

    What the h..l can was growing inside my system?

    Yes, I think this is it. Not too bad, since that old Swiftech 240 mm rad is not part of the final dual-system build. Fingers crossed: hopefully no more green ugly stuff coming from this loop (y)

    What the h..l can was growing inside my system?

    Thank you for your thoughts, but I realize that there must be some confusion about when the green liquid appeared. The green liquid came out when I extracted my Zen2 ITX gaming system from the Raijintek Ophion Evo case for moving it into the dual-system Phanteks Enthoo 719. To do so, I made two...

    What the h..l can was growing inside my system?

    Done! When re-purposed the mini-ITX system for the dual-system build, I did a proper cleaning and flushing with the Mayhems System. This means cleaning radiators (part 1) and washing/flushing the loop (part 2). Then, I used the EK Cryofuel to fill it. What I did not do is disassembling the CPU...

    What the h..l can was growing inside my system?

    True, copper becomes green when it oxidizes. Thank you for the hint.

    What the h..l can was growing inside my system?

    I did a mini-ITX build done in 2013 with the The Swiftech H220. I loved it, but switched to other builds soon after and parked the X220 until December 2019. In December 2019, I expanded the old Swiftech H220 (CPU blck/pump and 240 mm radiator) with an Alphacool Eisblock GPX-N Plexi GeForce RTX...

    I like the toll reservoir. It must have taken forever to fill it up, but you have a healthy column of cooling liquid for your system.

    New and Improved Watercooling Sticky - Post Your Systems Here

    Yes, 2 systems, one custom loop... with 1 x 360 mm radiator (60 mm thick) on the top as exhaust, 1 x 480 mm (30 mm thick) on the front as intake, one D5-reservoir combo (on the front), 1 distroplate on the back, one block/pump on the mini-ITX (for the Ryzen 9 3900X). A lot of planning before...

    I made it! :) I moved my AMD Zen2 Monster Gaming mini-ITX system into a huge dual system Phanteks Anthoo 719 case, sharing the 'rent' with a massive Threadripper 1960X, all with a custom watercooling loop. Posting the build process soon!

    Putting first loop together

    I just bought the same size fittings and flex tubes from EKWB! Just matte black tubes in my case. @ FrgMstr, thank you so much for the recommendations! 🙏

    What motherboard to get for threadripper 3?

    I did it! I am building a dual-system machine! Pushed by the fear of empty stores, like empty Microcenter or everything out of stock at Neweeg, I broke my piggy bank and made three orders: Newegg.com Amazon.com EKWB.com Here the pcpartpicker list of parts from Newegg.com. The GPU block for the...

    What motherboard to get for threadripper 3?

    All true (sadly). Only point to add is that this is the best time to purchase PC goodies before the end of the buffer stock from distributors and manufacturer. Once the manufacture and distribution is back, prices would stay high for long. I do tons of multitasking with many PCs altogether, so...
