Waterforce x299x

My first time trying custom water cooling.

It is a work in progress.

Update. After fitting the final tube I pressure tested the loop as shown in 1 of the pictures. After leaving it for 1 hour the gauage had dropped 2 small lines. As I'm new to custom water cooling is this normal? As in maybe the air settling with the tubes. Or is it more likely that I have a slow air leak somewhere?


Current parts used:
Case- Be Quier Dark Base Pro 900 rev 2
Motherboard - Gigabyte Aorus x299x Extreme Waterforce
Processor - Intel 10980xe
RAM - Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 64GB 3200mhz
Boot drive and main Storage - samsung 970 pro NVME ssd
Mass storage drive - Samsung pro Evo 2tb NVME SSD
Power supply - Corsair AX1600I. The rear of the case needed modding as it comes pre installed with a IEC C13 cable which is not suitable for the power supply so this needed removing and modding to allow the correct cable to be used.
Cable mod custom sleeved cables from the configuaror in black and silver.
Cooling:
Pump/reservoir - Singularity computers Protium reservoir and D5 pump with pump cover
Barrow 14mm PETG tubing.
Barrow silver fittings.
EK water blocks PE 360 radiator top mounted.
EK water blocks SE420 radiator front mounted.
The case required a bit of modding to fit the top radiator.
Fans - InWin Crown 120 and 140. 4x 120 and 4x 140. All 8 of the fans are daisy chained together so only 1 connecting to the motherboard is required.

GPU will likely be a Nvidia 3080ti or equivalent when released also water cooled. Gong to use a 1080ti until the new cards are released.
