    Until this morning it was running on air but I have way too much watercooling stuff not to feel pressured to use it.

    Pics tell a thousand words - As was this morning

    Prevously benched like so:


    This morning I started stripping it down to throw some bits and bobs at it (Aquaero 6LT, EK Velocity, EK FC Vega RGB, Aquacomputer D5 with res)

    Rads will be XSPC 360 V3.0 and EK XE240 fitted with Noiseblocker PL2s

    A bit of a long time EK fan (my Supremacy has seen me though Phenom's, FX's and briefly put on the Ryzen until a leak gave the Mrs an excuse to demand that I go back to aircooling like a normal person.

    I had the Acetal FC block for the Vega which I never got around to fitting, this morning I upgraded that to the RGB version.

    Strip and clean

    Faff about with little screws and thermal pads for an hour or so gets you this

    While searching for something in the attic, I found my original EK block - The original Supreme!

    EK Rad will sit in the bottom and I have the drainage for the loop plumbed in

    Basically a 90deg fitting with the tube fed though the rad mount to a tap.

    Bottom rad in situ

    Trying out Alphacool fittings this time around, quality seems good and pricing not insane like the Bitspower stuff

    The Velocity fits in nicely with the Asus Prime colour scheme

    More to come...
