My first build. Decided to go all in and build a full custom loop. Very happy with the end result.

Hey, nice build! Was wondering what CPU temps are? I also have a 3700x and am leaning towards a high end air cooler like DRP4 or the Noctua DH15 but wanted to compare those to a custom loop like yours. Thanks!
I have a 3700x with a 240mm rad and I get around 73c during gaming. Though, I'm using the pre-applied thermal paste that comes with the cooler and plan to reapply it using thermal grizzly conductonaut.
Wow, really? With the stock cooler I am also usually around 70c during gaming (R6), but I guess it depends on what games, cases, and a lot of things. Thanks for the reply!
I run my fans and pump at very low rpm. I'd rather have medium to high temps than a bunch of noise while I'm working.
Thanks! When gaming my CPU temp is ~55°C. Under Aida64 load my temps go to ~75°C. My fans are at ~700RPM and my pump is at 35%.
Ah okay, thanks! Sounds like it's very cool and also quiet!
So clean. This kind of build is where the Asrock X570 Aqua board would fit in perfectly.
Looks great! Well done!
What make are the resevoir and radiator? My P600S case uses the same interior chassis as yours so trying to make the right choice on sizes and get some idea of radiator brands.
I have 2x HWLabs GTS360 radiators and 1x Corsair XD5 pump/res combo. HWLabs makes one of the best, if not the best radiators.
I was tempted to use the fill/drain port holes of the case at first but seems filling the res is no issue with how much room is above it. Any issues with the flow rate?
Glad to hear it is HWLabs radiators. Been looking into them a lot lately.
I have set up only the drain port, because a fill port is useless in my opinion. I don't have any problems with flow rate. Even with the pump at 20% (Minimum speed) the coolant flows without any problems.
In the event that corsair pump gives up look into singularity computers. AUS based and I genuinely love how their mount system works :D
How tall is the tube section of the res by the way? 100mm? 140mm? (Not including the top part with inlets)
The tube is somewhere around 110mm.
How did you cut and mold the tubes? As well how much was the set? +1 actual fire setup
I used a heatgun to bend tubes and a pipe cutter to cut them.
