Vega has Ryzen!

Hey guys! Over the holiday season I've been building a new computer that I had in mind since I saw the first AMD Vega Nano PCB. Something just made me very excited about it. Was it the really beautiful PCB-Layout? The HBM-Memory next to the Vega-core?

I can't tell, but here it is!

Let me tell you, it nearly made me go insane. The Lian-Li PC-O5SX case is amazing and at the same time amazingly difficult to water cool. But you can make it work, if you order the right fittings and stuff...

What went in there?

The Case: Lian Li PC-O5SX - I'm in love with it and at the same time I kinda hate it at the same time; like a good relationshipp right? Emoji

The PSU: Sharkoon 500W SFX-L unit - It is the same one as the Silverstone one. I replaced the fan with a BeQuiet SilentWings 3 and sleeved all the cables myself.

The main components: ASUS B450-I Strix Motherboard, AMD Ryzen 5 2600 (-50mV offset voltage), HyperX 2x8GB DDR4 3600Mhz Samsung B-Die Memory with tweaked subtimings, Samsung 970 EVO NVME 500GB SSD, Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 Graphics card that is running at around 1500Mhz @ 975mV and 975Mhz on the HBM2 Memory.

The water cooling gear: All parts are of AliExpress. I've used these parts multiple times and until now I didn't get any faulty fittings or something like that. There is one exception, the radiator is a EK WaterBlock 240mm SE one.
But what did I use?
- Barrow AM4 CPU Block
- Bykski Vega 56 Nano Block; the only block I could find..
- Laing D5 Pump with Acrylic Top and nice metal body
- 110x50mm Reservoir
- Multiple multi rotational fittings by Barrow
- All sort of fittings 14mm OD
- 14mm Hard line tubing

Fluid? Some basic clear stuff by Alphacool. I love the reflections that clear fluid produces.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this little build and maybe someone got inspired by it? Emoji
