Description

This is my first water cooling build and I wish I did it before . Like every pc enthusiast , I want it to do this but to be honest I was scared to mess it up cause I though it is so hard . Well , finally I decide it to give it a try and I'm so glad I did . Its not only that it looks good but it is so quiet that sometime I ask my self if the pc is working at all . I will never go back to buy any other fans but these (EK Vardar) unless I cant afford it lol . It was pretty ease to build it and if I was little bit more patient I could have done a much better job . I didn't really planned too much on how to do tubes . I just did it as it comes because I will be doing it again . Have to reroute some tubes in different position so it looks better . This was my practice build and in few months I will be redoing my girlfriends pc because its way too loud . The temperatures did not improved much on idle but on full load are 20 degrees lower on gpu`s and cpu . I reused most of the parts from my Black and White build beside case . Got the new case NZXT 700i and did some moods for better airflow . I also took the cable shroud out cause It didn't fit in there imo . Had to move the fans in the front to push position because it was in the way of water pump . The top 360 is pull position otherwise wouldn't be able to install it

I cut 2 holes on the front panel for 2 fans to give some more airflow cause the fans are too close to the back of the panel so this way it sucks in more air . Cable management is so ease in this case , one of the best things . Well , I know its not that great but I`ll do better next time for sure . Most of the fitting are EK of course but I was short a few and had to use some of the Phanteks . Will replace them once I start the other build which I will be using Phanteks parts for it . Also cpu was delided and oc to 5Gh , works pretty good . I'm not gonna be doing parts reviews since I reused most of the parts from previous build . Btw , I gave it that name is because it operates so quiet .

This was really fun and I cant wait to do it again . Check it out and let me know what you think , thanks

Part Reviews

Case

Awesome looking case , quality build slick clean look . Pretty big for an ATX case with really great cable management . Love the side panel push to unlock . Hate the cable shroud bar , it really looks bade for my taste and its in the way of everything , but since you can remove it not that big of the problem . Still have to give 5 stars for the good stuff and awesome looks .

How do you like CAM? Does the Smart device work well?

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 2 points 15 months ago

To be honest , I did not check it what can it do . I have no problems with it at all and I like it because is smaller than HUE+ and doesn't take much space . You can hook up lots of fans and led strips . I run 6 fans and 2 led strips but you can have more of them connect it .

Jamie1196 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Those two led strips are daisy chained right? I take it that the Smart Hub works perfectly without CAM.

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 2 points 15 months ago

Well , there is no way you can change colors without software so you still need CAM . Pretty much like a HUE+ . I Did not try aer rgb fans tho , do idk if they will work with Hub without using HUE+ . And yes , strips are daisy chained .

Jamie1196 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Right. So you have CAM installed and it isn't bugging you about setting an automatic fan curve.

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 2 points 15 months ago

Not at all . Temps are great and fans are so quiet , I don't see the reason why . Maybe the fans , these EK Vardar fans are really super quiet bro .

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 2 points 15 months ago

Its bugging me more that the top panel have poor air flow but that has nothing to do with CAM .

EricZ04 1 point 13 months ago

Great Build. You have inspired me to use the case even thought the price is high.

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

Thanks , glad i could help :)

Do you need a support brace for those gtx1080tis?

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Since i don't use terminal to connect the blocks i do but if u use terminal you don't need it .

VanWinkle 1 point 12 months ago

Terminal? Sorry I have only built one pc and I don’t know everything

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Terminal block is the thing that connects two gpu water blocks . Used to get the water from one gpu block to another . They are usually square and made from acrylic (clear or acetal black) material .

this is the definition of a post card PC. the only thing its missing is a box with my shipping address on it.

Hi there, sorry if this question is a long time after the build but I just want to know how you mounted the pump. Because I will be doing my custom soft tubing loop very soon in this case I was just wondering if you need a vertical mounting bracket. Anyways, nice build!

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

You can mount it to radiator with this bracket https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-uni-pump-bracket-120mm-fan-vertical

DerpyAlpuca 1 point 10 months ago

Just wondering if you will need one. I already found the vertical mounting bracket.

DerpyAlpuca 1 point 10 months ago

So you mounted it on the rad? Never thought of it. Cool

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 1 point 10 months ago

Of course you will need a bracket . You can use that one or you can use more simple bracket from ek also and mount it to the bottom of the case .

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

For me this is the right size , i didn't like 12/16mm cause is too big . 10/12 just perfect :) .

Hector1908 submitter 9 Builds 1 point 16 months ago

that's ok , 13mm is not a big different , almost the same :)
