After a successful bleed with no leaks into an easy boot, what better way to celebrate than a pcpartpicker writeup?

In celebration (more commonly known as jealousy) of DDR4 and the 5960X, I decided to ditch my MASSIVE Phanteks Cooler for a more sleek liquid cooling setup. While the colours don't look "as seen on TV" as I'd like, I'm impressed with the results in performance nonetheless. Now onto the delicious part breakdown! For reference of any old parts I may or may not be covering, feel free to check out previous versions of this build in a less watercooled flavour Cougar Vortex fan mans: I got these as apposed to the XSPC fans that came with the kit and another one to replace the 120mm fan in the top of the tj11 and am glad I did. Also they have a very sleek look with a cool orange accent! I used the all-orange ones i n my mini-itx build and I died.

Cooling stuff: I don't know anything about this I just went to frozencpu and took advice from that awful imageboard and some tech youtubers. I would have ideally LOVED to get an EK kit for swag overload but they don't make a 480/560 rad and they're hella expensive.

Before you whine about the idle temps, I juts want to clarify what I consider idling: idling to me is running everyday tasks on your PC like a web browser, music, a VoIP service, steam and some other stuff in the background on top of your OS, not just sitting in the BIOS doing nothing. If that was the case, I would be getting <14 degrees Celsius.

I plan on running 3dmark and monitoring temperatures while doing so so I can get the scores and an under-load reading. I'll take pictures after.

The picture you submitted isn't that great. Can you upload a few more? Thanks.

I will upload more pics once I get everything optimized and OC'd, also as for the bad quality of the pics I may borrow a friends Nikon 5200 but if not the "ipohne photography" will have to suffice considering I have nothing to photograph besides computer parts, I have no use for a real camera.

Sorry for the delay on all this.

Unfortunately this build is no longer with us. I've pretty much retired from watercooling as well as any form factor larger than mATX after a nasty leak on another WC'd rig and the convenience of a mITX rig. big sorry

I notice you're using a E-ATX motherboard even though it's not listed on the motherboard compatibility section. Did you have any problem installing that or did it go right in with no problem ?

yeah, it's a full tower case with XL-ATX support, and on silverstone's site they list EATX compatibility soooo yeah.

I've contacted pcpartpicker staff about the problem but it's been a year or so since the original moof machine and there's no fix yet.

It fits in fine you just have to install the EATX standoffs.
