The reservoir looks like a thermos with fruit punch in it.

Love the build bro, I hope this get featured.

I have just one question, What coolant are you using?

I'm using EK Cryofuel Solid - Scarlet Red. I've read you take more of a risk running brighter, solid fluids due to build up. I couldn't resist!

Really appreciate it man!

Wow very nice build, very good cooling. Also wanted to ask , did you get 9900K 5.2Ghz completely stable on all cores?

Yessir. I lapped this one. I haven't delidded yet, which I'm thinking about doing. Just $500 down the drain if you mess up makes me nervous haha.

1.38V, it's running hot. I use it for benchmark scores :D

If I had a recommendation to anyone, I'd say sit at 5. It's more than enough, and that's what I run regularly.

Nice Rig! I am building a similar one, 9900k, 2080 Aorus, TT View 71TG.

How is airflow for your other components in this? My case is a very similar layout, minus the dual radiator top (looks like that one is wider than mine)

Running a 240 AIO I find overclocking a challenge with anything past 5.0 GHZ, So I am currently scoping and learning the tricks and tips of doing a fully custom loop, but this was the one thing I couldn't find a lot of info on. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks man!

Airflow I'm still playing with. Believe it or not I'm seeing how one exhaust with a 140 on the lower backside will work with buildup. I'm running all SP120's, aside from there, I have an ML140.

I used an AIO for the longest time. Temps are relatively competitive, you can squeeze a few more degrees out of the custom loops, but all in all its pretty similar. If your case can fit it, I've heard great things about the Fractal S36, as well was the Kraken x72.

However, EK just came out with a new line of products that are using aluminum blocks. It's really affordable, and can add a custom loop to just about anything. You just can't upgrade to standard copper/nickel products. You don't ever want to mix metals. The 240G was one I was looking at before this, which is all soft tubing. Rigid tubing can be a pain in the ***. I messed up going with 12/16 for my first build. I would recommend staying with 10/12.

I'd be happy to answer any questions for you, it's pretty limited on current information for water cooling (at least that's what I found when doing my research.) Everything is a little dated and there's been new products that have come out since then. If you haven't seen any of his videos, check out Jayztwocents. All kinds of videos on Youtube about it.

Working on getting a channel up and going myself, its finding the time, and quiet space to record a video without my daughters carrying on in the background.
