SnowDeath Micro ATX BUILD Watercooled

PART:

I've wanted something powerfull and quiet so obviously every fan are made by bequiet. 900rpm pwm for 140 mm (2 in front) and 1100 rpm pwm (120 mm) for the 3 exhaust fan. Easy to set and low noise even at full speed. +1 for bequiet.

combo AMD with AMD RYZEN 5 3600 X and VEGA 64 STRIX. Pair nice and rock hard !

Everything on a beautifull white/back/nickel motherboard (Asrock b450m steellegend), For a "cheap" MB you have: 2 m2 slot, argb header, rgb header, 4 ram slot up to 3200 mhz, 4 fan connector + pump....

I'm using 2 8go of 2666 mhz by corsair (vengeance RGB PRO from my previous build)

WATERCOOLING:

I'm a huge fan of EKWB so every pieces are from EK (except the 280 mm rad). CPU waterblock and GPU waterblock are from the VELOCITY series and they are really really cool. Clean and solid !! +100000 EKWB!

First watercooling loop with first mistake, like drain port (forget about it) so i had to changed the loop and add a drain port. i'm using blac/nickel feetings for this one.

Spirit of the build:

I've wanted to do something neutral with no RGB, but the steel-legend B450M have some, so i've decided to add RGB but only with white or black effect.

PROBLEM:

The 280 MM rad in front is a problem. NZXT said it was ok for a 240 or 280 mm rad + fan in front, in practice it's not that easy. The top of the radiator can't fit in and i had to cut off some steel. after that, no problem at all for the rest of the build.

BOOT:

Everything was fine and boot at first start (B450M STEELEGEND is compatbile out of the box with AMD 3xxx series ).

BENCHMARK:

ungine benchmark: 6250 at 4k

cinebench : 1615

TEMP:

CPU : 62° at load, 35 idle GPU : 40° full load, 24 idle

Please let me know what do you think and enjoy !
