Description

Took a notion that i wanted to build my self a racing sim. I was planing on using my old i7 16gb ram PC, build the sim and then update the PC. While looking at spec's of things i found this website and it went down hill from there. The PC quickly took priority, I started specing just around Ryzen 3000 launch time. So waited to see what it was all about. On launch date i ordered the 3800x & 5700XT. I had to wait a few weeks on the EK GPU water block. I haven't built a PC for myself in must be 10 years or ever water cooled. Any questions fire away, or if you can help me improve something ive done please tell me.

Waiting on my cablemods PSU cables then its done

3800x 4.4Ghz @1.4v runs fine @1.375v but get higher scores on the higher volts setting. Cant get it to boot any higher.

5700xt GPU @2155mhz memory 900mhz OC wont go any higher on both

Water temps 28-30c idle 36-38c playing games

PETG bending is not fun :( must have taken me 3-4 goes for every bend :D

That looks completely horrible. Kidding! Nicely done! How much of a PITA was it to work with hard tubing?

Thanks :) at the start I thought it was easy enough. A simple 90 bend is, got really frustrated doing the harder stuff. Need to find a better system for measuring between bends. Couple of pipes id like to redo

There is 2 free ports on right side of res. Just kept it 45 degree until all bubbles stopped. Then turned it off set it up right, filled it up and closed the port. Few days later opened port to check pressure.

Thanks, i've two EWK 120's on the other side. They are 3000rpm fans so can be pretty loud when they ramp up. I mite change them out at a later date
