    Show us your awesome watercooled rigs!

    Personally I haven't been able to go back to AIOs or air since building my first loop in 2011 or 2012. The open loop bug bit me.

    Woop.

    I went for my second ever custom loop for my current TR 2990WX build. Very satisfied. I still think its the only way to go for a CPU like that. All core OC to 4.1Ghz certainly makes for a hot chip under heavy load.

    Will have to go for my list of components but I do love the Heatkiller waterblocks, huge chunk of copper sexiness, certainly gets the job done.

      Trying to find a case to actually fit my HWLabs radiators which are slightly wider than normal. They're 140mm radiators, but 153mm wide which makes things tough.

      Currently looking at maybe the Phanteks Luxe 2, just so long as it can fit my HWLabs GTX420 at the front. At least before my tubing gets even worse.

        Yeah those ever so slightly wider rads can certainly be an issue. I myself have the be quite! Dark Base Pro which was able to fit in my Black Ice Nemesis 420 GTR Radiator. I have tubing going a few places in my case as you will see below. Having two GPU's with AIO coolers along with my WC loops creates for some interesting routing lol

        My original shopping list for my WC setup is as below

            At first I thought it would affect it negatively and I am sure that technically it does by a degree or 2 with it being mounted in front, that being said the cooling works just fine. I have an all core (32) OC at 4.1Ghz, full load I get to about 70C when its balls to the wall. I cannot complain with that.

              As long as my financial situation doesn't change, I plan on doing a custom loop for my next PC--which I'll be building sometime within the next year. Might save up and wait until next gen Ryzen & 3000 series Nvidia, we'll see. Going to look at Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales if they're good enough, though I want to save up and pay off some other stuff first.

              Is it way way too ambitious to try rigid tubing for my first build? Acrylic or PETG.

                Welcome to EHW

                I don't think it is too ambitious to go with rigid tubing on your first attempt. I would advise purchasing a little more tubing than what you need so you can practice with it and get a feel for it, plus if anything goes wrong you have spare. Also be prepared for the extra time with it as it is a little more time consuming over soft tubing which you just cut to length as appropriate. There are plenty of guides out there but this is a short and sweet look at it : https://bit-tech.net/guides/modding/...and-acrylic/1/

                            Awesome ! Are you sticking with it or ''Upgrading'' to Gen 3 TR ? I use the term upgrading loosely.

                              It would be a pretty nice upgrade, but I'm probably going to stick with it for now.
                              Next upgrade will probably be swapping out the Vegas for two more Radeon VIIs. If I go that route I might need to swap out one of my PSUs. Currently running a 1300W and a 1000W, and if I OC everything it gets pretty close to maxed out.
