Lets be real. This is the 100th iteration and hopefully there will be a 100 more. Watercooling brought a new joy to pc building. And planning out new builds is almost as fun as building it. Almost sad each time I'm "done".
Goal: Stuff the Enthoo Elite case as full of radiators as possible and still allow for clean runs (failed in the cpu area... suggestions are welcome) and some accessibility for maintenance.
CPU I'm mostly using it for gaming but some video editing. I cant defend the 2950x (and allot of the other stuff) and would probably be better of with a 9900k. But when AMD is doing good and making stuff like this I wanted it.
GPU Previously build had 1080's in SLI. SLI is awesome when it works but requires allot of tinkering with settings. 2080ti is awesome and vertical mount removed the empty space that makes SLI look so good. Horrible reasoning.. but lets not pretend that looks are important especially on pages like this.
CASE Enthoo elite is awesome. Awesome craftmanship. As a result the total weight is such that you will need help to move it around.
COOLING ML fans are awesome (14 ML and 3 HD). Mostly EKWB. Also some barrow 90's and extenders. Tubing is 16mm. The size of the case makes this a necessity in my mind. 5 radiators in total. To much? No. Wish I had more... seriously. Difficult to drain. Not sure what to about this considering all the area's where air can be trapped. The EK dual pump is in the back with the PSU. I also used some soft tubing in this area.. not sure I have the skill (or willpower) to bend tube in that space. I also have 4 individual G1/4 fitting type temp monitors in addition to the barrow LED temp and flow monitor.
OTHER: I made the power cables myself. Wanted to match the white liquid. Result was ok.. but considering the time it took the professional made cables are definitely worth the price.
