    Hi,
    If performance pc has the unit in stock you can get a little discount by using discount code OCN55 I believe :)

    system is all together, but its lacking RGB! the rf receiver from my LEDS is not working, so ill have to order more anyway to fill the surrounding of the case.

    some notes:

    Its quiet as hell! even gaming, no noise! all the parts that come with the kit are very high quality, i didn't feel like i was going to break anything during install. the fill and getting bubbles out process was a lot easier than expected. i had one other helping me though. The case looks amazing! very clean, all aluminium, smoked glass, looks sexy as hell! maybe some braided cables in the future. lol. my only gripe about the case is how hard it is to get the magnetic doors to stay shut, especially on the back side.

    for the kit, ill admit, the pump is a little weak, ill end up having to upgrade that in the future. but everything is included that u will need. super easy to work with, and honestly, temps are pretty decent! CPU temps are down about 10C from my h100i, and GPU temps are down about 10C as well from the AIO i had on there. im still playing with fan speeds and what not, but its looking good. the EK website said the block was not compatible with my specific GPU, people on forums said that the extra fan port gets in the way and the block needed to be modified or the port de-soldiered, but i found that when putting it together, there was no issues at all. playing BF1 for a few mins yields about 50C on the CPU and 49-52C on the GPU. GPU memory is at about 60C and GPU VRMS are about 55C. these numbers are way better than that AIO i had on there!


    Some pics to come later. im waiting on the new LED strips to get here.


    All in all, if this kit had a better pump, it'd be amazing!

    Hi,
    Indeed 60c gpu is pretty much what air cooling does with fans at full blast on the ftw3 quite a difference on water :)

    Yes water flow running across cpu and gpu cooling fins at a higher rpm will no doubt probably put the items a lot cooler

    yuppp, so when i buy my new CPU and MOBO, ill search for a pump. this card got up to high 80's with the stock cooler on there! Currently, i have the FTW3 LN2 Bios flashed on it. i got +70 on the core and +450 on the memory. no voltage added. whenever i take the gpu cooler off again, ill end up sanding the contact surface with some EXTREMELY fine sand paper. i should have done it before installing, but didn't want to void the warranty so soon! lol

    Thanks!

    so, problem. when the loop gets heat soaked, the front rad is exhausting into the case, and the top rad out the case, i think the exhaust from the front 360 is heating up the top rad causing it to heat the water more rather than cool it. opening the side door, cpu temps drop a lot ~5-8C and gpu temps drop by like 2-3c. u guys think i should reveres the top fans to intake from the top and exhaust into the case? the top fans have a filter on them, and i have the rear fan as exhaust. i feel like doing this will cause the mobo temps to increase a lot.

    Hi,
    Yeah looks nice
    I should of said one hopes for 60c gpu with fans full blast
    All my readings show 40c gpu/ memory/ power sensors in evga precision although I mostly use msi afterburner.

    I'd try making both rads intake and all the hot air will be pushed out the back... where ever it can be pushed out.
    Filtering the front and top should already be there or at least mine do have filters there.

    Alright, I'll try and flip the top fans around.

    I already drained it, and checked the GPU mounts. All was good. I sanded the block where the die makes contact a little. It's a lot shinier now, and dropped the temps quite a bit. I'll see if I can flip the fans without draining the loop. If not I'll let be and deal with it till next weekend I guess.

    Hi,
    Yep great thing about soft tubing you can do a lot without draining
    Thermal paste change...

    Most people with aio's will make the top where their rads are as exhaust
    But they don't usually have a rad on front to think about

    It does look better rad/ cpu/ rad
    I always leave plenty of slack in the soft lines so I can adjust if I want too all I have to do is cut where the fitting is and still have a lot to refit.
