You should check the motherboard specifications before making comments like this. If the bandwidth isn’t saturated, then there’s no loss in performance.
Thanks. It's to pass "cooler" are through the radiators, just a preference.
Sorry for the late response. Do you mean the Hexgear cable combs?
See rebuild in my “completed builds”
Upgraded mobo and now use a monoblock.
Thumbs up for the effort man. 100% unique
73C on load for a 6C/12T i7 is what cpu coolers of this size will do. Similar perf like the Noctua NH-D15
Very clever design, love it
Excellent.. I was considering cutting out a new slot for it.
Is there clearance for a slim (15mm) 120/140 mm fan above the CPU block? I was thinking one may fit to provide some cool air for vrms and M.2 ssd heatsink.
How did you manage to install rad+fans without issues from the power socket?
I second temps aren’t the best with just on 240 rad so I put 2 although second is passive. Considering using the new xspc tx240 as that’s only 20.5mm thick and have fans installed.
Awesome blocks. I designed some but never got to having them made.
Orient fans to pull cool air from the top, temps will be better.
I used these fittings
Sorry for delayed response.
It appears they have identical features too (6-phase VRM, no. of SATA ports, M.2 slots USB etc) and I can't seem to understand why they've done that.
A bit peeved off that they won't support APUs for iGPU output but can manage without that.
any differences between B350i and x370i, apart from the chipset. they look identical
very clever loop, I like
The passive rad was mainly to execute the loop design tbh but if memory serves me right the coolant temps dropped by 1-2C.
My loop design is having another revision lol. I designed a plexiblock which will replace the front glass.
RyanEl design is very neat.
Oh very clean
I really appreciate your feedback, thank you.
If I had to do one thing different it is to keep the sleeved cables as short as possible, interferes with the pump/res combo.
Be ready for the unexpected if you are plan on modifying the case, had to drill new mount holes for the bottom radiator.
Do you plan on mounting pump/res in back or front compartment?
Very neat, 5*
I used the D5 pump and XSPC D5 Tank V2 eventually, not enough clearance for EK Pump top, pump and stand.
How warm does your 960evo get, idle and load?
It's a snug fit but it closes without issues as the compartment measures just under 76mm. The power supply is about 10mm from the mid wall.
How did tou modify the CPU block?
Very neat. Love it
Nice build. Rookie mistake not buying angled fittingss. + 1 all the same.
Awesome. Still one of my fav mini-itx cases
gota link to the screen for hardware monitoring? Is it powered my hdmi only?
Very clean loop
I mean these sorry. Same blade design. so should have same noise output at given speed.
Why not the Noctua IndPPC fans will suit build better I think. Loop looks ace +1
Thanks man. I see you were hunting around for an SFX case for watercooling.
Thanks. yes, I had to mod case.
Well executed. Love it.
I’ll have to nick some ideas from this
During gaming sessions GPU temp peaks at 43C, CPU max temp is 55C, PCH 58C.
Thanks . You've done some awesome builds too.
0 (zero)mm. Thumbscrews tightened just enough to hold it in place without pressure on the block/motherboard. But I tend to leave the side open. I like caressing her insides
Paid £220 but traded my 6700K for £190. Picked up motherboard for £120 sold Z170i for £90
A case with a separate compartment for the GPU will be ideal if you are going for that small footprint SFX form factor unless you aren't worried about high temps and/or CPU/GPU throttling.
It's noticeable without headphones, temps hovered around 73-76C with fan rpm at 3000RPM( custom fan curve) but that's in the FT-03 case which has only one 140mm fan at the bottom, with better airflow it should run quieter and cooler.
what cases did you have in mind?
I need a hug!
Like the custom VRM heatsink, nice touch.
It would be interesting to see how much power was drawn by the CPU, stock and OC'd
Do this build some justice, get some sleeved cables. It deserves it
Very original, love it
