First build. First watercooling loop.
Oh what a fulfilling experience. I had many challenges along the way, but yet at all the crucial points the build went on without a hitch. I suppose thats what i get for doing 3 years of research before building. :P
Specs are as you see on the side bar. As for the loop it is:
-Ek fc1070 gpu block
-Ek supremacy evo (see note 1)
-Alphacool nexxxos st30 xflow 240mm rad
-Ek compression fittings in red 10/16mm (3/8-5/8")
-Ek 90 degree fittings
-bitspower t fitting
-bitspower 5mm spacer male-male
-bitspower blood red plug
-Liang ddc 3.25 18w pump
-bitspower magic cube pump top
-bitspower reservoir upgrade 150mm
-nidec gentle typhoon 1850rpm pwm
Temps run fine on the single 240mm rad during extended gaming periods. Idle cpu/gpu 22c/28c Load cpu/gpu 52/48
In doing this build i have a few takeaways.
Note 1: you need the supremacy evo backplate and mounting mechanism if you want to mount a supremacy mx block. At that point you should just buy an evo block to begin with.
Note 2: i needed to cut off 5mm of the pump mount sled of the define nano s to slide the res far enough forward to accommodate the gtx 1070.
Note 3: the evga 1070 backplate is compatible if the ek fc1070 waterblock.
