Custom lian li watercooled system

Recommended Posts

So I started a watercooling project back in 2006-2007 and my goal was to build a system that looked great, was near silent and did a great job with cooling. After researching all the available blocks, reservoirs, radiators, tubes etc I decided to build a lian li based water cooling system with custom imported parts from aquacomputers that included the reservoir and fan grill. I also used danger den blocks (maze I believe) for the GPU/CPU and a bix2 radiator with dual 120mm fans. The setup worked amazingly well, it was quiet and the temperatures were always 30c and below with overvolting + overclocking. I no longer have this particular system (got lost when I moved to medical school) but it still brings back fond memories and I plan to build another one when ivy bridge is released. :40_002:

      Hello Tech Inferno eGPU community.

      Just doing some research and wanted to know how many people here implement watercooling into their eGPU rigs.

      Reply below if you do or you don't and why! If you do, what enclosure do you use?

      Regards,
      David

      Posts like the one highlighted below are what make up the heart and soul of Tech|Inferno. We've got enthusiasts  like HotPantsHenry that take a perfectly good MSI GT60-0NC notebook with an 880m GPU and decide to take it to the next level by strapping on a waterblock to it using electrical tape..that's right electrical tape!

      Here is an awful picture, but will give you an idea of what is going on. 
      Cpu cooling is stock. Even with minor OC to the cpu, the temps stay pretty cool.

      Xigmatek Elysium Full System Watercooling
      After my Asus MarsII watercooling project has “failed”, I went on with my two GTX Titans. I was long undecided whether I want to invest money again to set up or leave the system as it is with an unused radiator, reservoir and pump.
      In November I decided to create a list with all watercooling components which I would need to cool the entire system with one watercooling loop. Unfortunately not all parts were in stock at that time, especially the availability of the black 19/13 Monsoon Rotarys was unknown. I let the whole thing fall back a little, I had less time anyway and many things were going on.
      Now in January everything was in stock and I decided to order. My 25th birthday was coming, so I made myself a gift.
      Hardware:
      Case: Xigmatek Elysium
      PSU: Enermax MaxRevo1500
      Mainboard: Asus Rampage IV Extreme
      CPU: Intel Core i7-3960X
      RAM: 4x8Gb G.Skill RipjawsZ 2133Mhz
      GPU: 2x Asus GTX Titan SLI
      Watercooling Parts:
      Pump: Alphacool VPP655-T12
      Reservoir: Phobya Balancer 250
      Radiator: Watercool Mo-Ra3 360 PRO
      Tubing: Masterkleer UV red 19/13mm
      Motherboard: EKWB RE4-Kit Acetal+Nickel CSQ
      CPU: Aquacomputer Cuplex Kryos HF
      GPU: Aquacomputer Kryographics nickelplated + Watercool backplate
      Everything arrived on January 10th, the only thing missing was the R4E motherboard cooling kit, which @svl7 ordered and paid as part of our PS4 deal. Thanks again. ;D
      On Friday the 17th everything was ready to install. As always, not everything went according to the plan, learning by doing and problem solving as usual. I removed the AX850 PSU and the H100 from the top of the case and also tried to clean the whole case a bit.
      After 5 hours everything was mounted in the Xigmatek Elysium case again and the system was ready for looptesting. My room looked as if a bomb had exploded. I did a looptest for almost 6 hours, checked the system afterwards and found no leak. I changed the pump to the Enermax 1500W PSU and started the machine. Temps were all good, I did a clean install of Windows 8.1 Pro, until late afternoon the system was ready for some testing. I changed back to my Logitech G19 to be able to monitor the system temps using HWinfo. (Thanks @Mumak for your amazing tool ;D).
      I overclocked my i7-3960X to 4.5Ghz and the two GTX Titans to 1155Mhz (core; memory stock), highest temperatures reached were 57°C for the CPU and 50°C for the GPUs with a room temperature of 19°C having the four 180mm radiator fans at minimum speed (~40% = ~300RPM) with full speed (700RPM) max temps are 5-10°C lower.

      Some work still needs to be done, I want to sleeve the second GPU powercable and the currently existing temporary solution has to be replaced with a proper installation. The list with parts I need is already prepared, I'll order in the next days...
