Description

Upgraded my main rig with 9900ks - pulled my 2080 ti from my old rig. Chose the case when I fell in love with Performance-PC's water cooling distribution plate which is beautifully made. Bends were incredibly simple with the right amount of fittings. I did much less modding on this case compared to my last few - only cut the PSU shroud to fit the fan controller since I can't fit it in the 5.25" drive bay with the dual radiators. Only thing I'm thinking in the future is getting a picture etched on the tempered glass side. I only could fit 360 radiators due to the internal size of the case compared to my previous R5 being able to fit more 140 mm fans. The EKWB Vardar fans are amazing - just as high an RPM as Noctua industrials but much quieter - the RGB is nice too eliminating need for additional strips. The Acer X27 monitor is gorgeous if your system can run it - once you run HDR you can't go back - the fan in back is sadly much louder than my entire PC.

The final fluid of the system is Primochill Vue. I ran it in my previous system with some deposition but I should have swapped fluid more frequently - will see how it does in this one.

It’s the Aquero pro 6. Great piece of hardware and with amazing accompanying software. Expensive but will probably last decades

thanks for the info. i really liked how that looked, you mentioned you had to modify your PSU cage at bottom of case. do you also know if this will fit in drive bays.

It is designed to fit in the 5.25” drive bay but I couldn’t because of the radiators which take that space and make you remove the mounting brackets of the r6

Great build! I was wondering how you learned to do liquid cooling. Video links or posts because I'm trying to learn to do liquid cooling. +1

Watched Jayz2cents mostly at first - I highly recommend his channel mostly by looking at some of his earlier guide videos - he does more advanced stuff lately. It's honestly in principle fairly easy - just expensive for all the parts. I'm still terrible about perfectly bending the tubes since I do it only sporadically which ends up being the hardest part to get perfect. If you go for the soft tubing it is significantly easier and may be what you want to try. The order of the components rarely matters except for some cpu blocks, like mine, which has a distinct "in" port.

Just tall - doesn't hold that much honestly. The flatness brings out the VUE fluid movement.

Nice build, how often do you change out the vue fluid? I was thinking about getting it in mine but I was worried about it clogging up the system

Last time I used it I left it for a year which isn’t good. Left deposits as the fluid oxidized. Talking to a primo chill rep they recommend swapping every 6 or so months
