Hi, new to water cooling here. I assume noticeable heat around my cpu is a good thing after installing water cooler? I did not have this when I use AIO cooler. Also, I notice some condensation inside reservoir, is this normal? Thanks in advance.

If it's inside your reservoir is normal. If outside reservoir or tubes, then that's a problem. Your coolant cooler than ambient. biggrin.gif

Thanks. Glad to know at least this part is not a problem.

nothing to see here. I'm not proud of my miscalculatied, oversized reservoir.

I don't really care about aesthetics. I go for, "how many radiators I can squeeze in". You'll know when you see mine. Just be proud of your work man, upgrade it from time to time.

using Corsair carbide 600c inverted case. Had to remove 2 case fan to install the pump res. Now my GPU (1080 8G) generating too much heat when I run red dead redemption2. Planning to get waterblock for my GPU as well.

Nice set up and very nice light up block and res. During my build, LED at block, ram, etc require a retrofit. So no light up for mine. Be sure to get a full waterblock for GPU. smile.gif

I am waiting somebody to sell. Anyone selling GTX1080 waterblock? That simple setup already cost me ~RM2400.

This will burn all aesthetic lovers' eyes out there. Like I've said, my goal was to squeeze as many radiators as possible. biggrin.gif Built in 2012 if i remember it correctly.

I roughly understand you have entire system looped except RAM. Your reservoir, is it enough for a loop this big?

Why do you need the 2 fan array (doesnt look like they are water looped radiator)? I thought most of the heat should go to the radiator outside the case?

No joke about the aesthetics for sure. haha. man that's stuffed.

Are you getting close to ambient temperatures on your machine with so many rads?
I think he's talking about the two fans below, covered by the cooler master shroud. IINM, exhausting, right?

Yes, thanks for that.

Hey guys, quick question. Where are you getting your parts from? Order directly online from websites like EKWB? Kena tax or not?

EDIT: Please ignore my signature - have not updated in years.

I bought from ekwb website. Their website by default charges 22% Slovenia VAT but it's waived if you register account somewhere else. When it reaches our custom, DHL requested me to pay import tax.
