Moved to pink coolant from baby blue for this build, both EK Pastels, never had any issues, only changed as I fancied a swap, no temperature loss in nearly 2 years with pretty much no maintenance.
When I received the panels back from Denis - from Solidworks to physical parts in 2 days - super happy with the workmanship and finish, and with my design!
3 LL140s is a bit of a tight squeeze, dust filter and front cover still fit
Evolv ATX Airflow
Started with a 6600k/660Ti which appeased my OCD by looking nice on paper but soon upgraded to a strix 970, then a 980Ti. Delidded the CPU and custom looped that sucka, then got my case smashed up moving abroad. Insurance covered a new Phanteks Evolv ATX TG, and then I covered a 1080Ti poseidon. Sleeved cable extensions, moved to a D5 tube res from a D5 dual bay, I was happy, apart from the temps. Designed my own cut outs in Solidworks to a design I liked, and then Denis at Bytemodz stepped in and did an amazing job CNC'ing my design out of the Phanteks panels. Few cosmetic upgrades to LL140 fans and HD120s, and that's where I'm at today.
Whilst modding the panels, I set about the case removing a lot of framework from the top of the case to fit push pull fans between the rad and new open top of the case, to take advantage of the new airflow. Managed to squeeze 3x140 in the front as well which required some more material dremeling out of the way. cable management for 7 RGB fans and 2 plain 140s was a...challenge. case bolts together exactly as it did originally with the dust filters in place which I'm really pleased with. Temperatures are excellent now that I've Liquid metalled the Poseidon, and added spacers under the sprung screws to increase the tension of the card against the cooler, which saw up to 10 degrees better temps under load (and enables the GPU to idle around 28deg, so front fans actually stop for general usage, only turning on for gaming)
I don't have any sponsors but I do have to shoutout Denis @bytemodz again, the guy is an absolute boss and very talented. Hopefully people see this and what he's capable of.
Update 2020: Mid last year I updated this system to change the Motherboard and processor to a Z370 Maximus Formula X and 9900K. As well as this I changed to 32GB of Trident Z RGB. I chose the formula to take advantage of the VRM water cooling, as I had always wanted a gaming level board and really wanted to integrate the board into the loop. This required several new fittings, and I had got tired of the white EK fittings, so I stripped the paint back, Alu primer-ed them and then sprayed them graphite grey. Really pleased with how the fittings came out, the contrast to the coolant and match to other components is spot on. Also ordered a larger 1TB 970 Evo.
I started to strip down the PC in order to fit the new parts, and in doing so and planning the loop, managed to further hide the pump/res inlet/outlet ports to the rear of the pump, which greatly improved the aesthetic, also optimised the CPU block tubing so that it was the block was in the correct orientation (this had always annoyed me, but not impacted performance). I also ordered a coolant temperature sensor and integrated it in the loop, this allows fan profiling from coolant temperature and avoids any ramp up or down of fans which makes it feel a lot more premium. The build was largely uneventful, but took some different iterations before I was happy with tubing layouts and airflow. I also at this time made an adapter to convert the phanteks Evolv RGB connector to the ASUS motherboard, as my old motherboard didn't have RGB.
9900K is OC'd to 5GHz all core, with a -2 AVX offset to take it to 4.8GHz all core in AVX apps. This is done at 1.260v which with LLC gives around 1.236v and temps around 85 deg C. RAM is currently at 3200 stable, 3600 is possible but not all benches/tests complete satisfactorily.
Later in the year I got another SSD (860QVO) to replace the old WD 1TB Blue which went into a NAS. This has made the computer all but silent when booting, a real improvement to the perceived quality of the build, and one I wish I had done earlier to be honest.
The only issue I've had was with some sleeved extension cables from (I think) bitfenix - I was having an issue where in stress testing/benchmarking the 8 pin CPU power was getting far too warm, due to (I expect) the Maximus only having one CPU power connector. reverting to the standard corsair cable only remedied this and as it was hidden behind the top radiator I didn't mind. Then much later I started getting random shutdowns due to low +5v (BIOS reported ~+4.3v) - I checked the ATX extension with a multimeter for continuity and resistance and all appeared good, but the issue dissapeared when connecting with the original corsair cable so have reverted to that for now.
That is about where the build stands, in the interim I have built a rig out of aluminium extrusion for Sim Racing (Pcars 2, Dirt 2.0 and Assetto Corsa Competizione mainly) so that's what I'm using her for. Also got a 3d Printer so am doing quite a bit of solidworks and STL work.
