Hello everyone! After 2 years I post my second thread here, my english still not good LOL, 2 years ago I build my Ncase M1 with AIO CPU water cooling, (Here https://hardforum.com/threads/share...rix-gtx1070-o8g-gaming-graphics-card.1911725/ ) and I decide to upgrade my Ncase with full water cooling system, it’s hard, because my graphic card is ROG Strix 1070, it’s too high to set a full cover graphic card water block, but I still tried to make it, and I success!

I don’t upgrade my hadware, so still use Intel 6700K+ROG M8i+ROG Strix 1070. Here are my water cooling parts.

CPU water block: EK M8i monoblock
GPU water block: Customized bykski ROG Strix full cover water block
Reservoir & Pump: ICEMAN Cooler reservoir with P5 pump for Ncase
Radiators: EK Coolstream PE 240 38mm& XSPC TX120 20mm
Fans: 3xRaijintek Aeolus ß RW 120 13mm fans
Tubing: Bitspower 10/12mm PETG tube
Fittings: Barrow & Bykski fittings

Because ROG Strix 1070 is too high to fit normal full cover water block, I have to bought a customized water block from bykski like this (not mine):

There is a Tips! 2 years ago I use liquid metal(Coolabotory)to replace silicon grease between CPU core and top, get a good temprature, and I use liquid metal between the top and block too, few days ago when I take off the h100i’s block, I found it left some residue and very hard to clean it, then I used the metal polish to clean the top and get a “new 6700k” lol.

Also I replace old PSU silicon cable with new red silver plated cable, I highly recommend this cable route, very clean, good looking.

This is the reservoir and pump, it looks like FrozenQ reservoir for ncase, but it had a build-in pump with 3.5m pump lift. I set a red Barrow manual exhaust valve on the top of reservoir.

Here is the tubing route, it was my first time to build water cooling, I tried my best LOL. The route is reservoir—GPU—TX120–CPU—PE240, GPU block outlet is very close to TX120 inlet, I use a Barrow offcenter fitting to join them.

And I test the temprature, 33℃ CPU and 31℃ When stand by, 55℃ CPU and 52℃ GPU when full load. Good!

Thanks for watching with my desk!

Nice build and that res/pump is incredible for the Ncase. I have never seen one before, where did you get it?

That looks like the optimal pump/reservoir combo to have for the M1...!

SFFLAB should really consider carrying this, or making their own version...

That is a beautiful build!

What kind of pump is that, on the reservoir? A DDC?

Nice build - If that's your first attempt then you really killed it! Good job (y)

That external pump/res is an awesome find. There will be a lot of M1 owners who find that very very useful.

you can get this from Ali ex im looking into this as well for a upcoming 5900x build. there was also a bitspower unit that had pump and res and block seen on optiumtech youtube channel im just weighing the options for build this one looks amazing and should cool very nicely. i want a full copper heatkiller cpu block though as those look sick.

here is the video i was looking for Barrow Block
here is the link to page Barrow Block
