Default Old Watercooler Returns to Custom Loops

Hey folks, LONGGGGGGGG time no post. I just referred someone to an article on the main page and it had me thinking, "I should post in the forum, just because."

So after a long break from running custom water I recently built a new custom loop. Far more advanced than any of my old configurations that is for sure.

So here is my current workstation setup I put together:

-Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.8Ghz for now
-Gigabyte AX370-Gaming-K5 mobo
-g.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB PC2800
-Nvidia GTX 980 (Used off Ebay cause screw pricing right now.)
-WD Black M.2SSD for scratch disk
-Samsung EVO 850 256GB SSD boot drive
-WD 1TB backup HDD
-Thermaltake Tower 900 Case

-Dual Loops (GPU / CPU)
-Alphacool 250mm Eisbacher VP755 Pump/Res combos
-EK Water Blocks Mono block for CPU and Mobo VRM
-Bitspower full coverage block on GTX 980
-EK Water Blocks SE360 thing 360mm radiators
-6x Cougar Gaming Vortex 120mm fans on Rads

This is a big step up from my old days of running a Danner mag pump, vinyl tubing, and a car heater core. However it made me nostalgic. I need to dig up old photos of my stuff, maybe I will see if anything hides in the corners of this forum.


And a video on YouTube while putting it together:

Ryzen 5 Watercooled Workstation

Up until this build I'd be running Air coolers or AIO coolers for a long time. It felt good (if not rather expensive) to get back into building a full custom loop.

Hope all is well, if anyone even sees this!
pro/chat has a website now? wow
