So I’d really like to watercool my whole system, CPU and single GPU, R7 1700X and Vega 56 (currently flashed to 64 air BIOS, but may consider liquid just for shiggles if it runs cool enough).
The downside is that I really don’t want to spend EK money, and I want more modularity than buying the Fluid Gaming kit with the upcoming Vega block, as well as being locked into aluminum components.
Currently I’m looking at the XSPC RayStorm Ion EX240 kit:
and expand it with an Aquacomputer Vega block:
as well as expand the loop with an addition 120mm radiator above the GPU.
Did find one build in my case with the EX240 kit (seems like the loop was added later): https://pcpartpicker.com/b/sDBPxr
As well as someone who built an EK loop with about the same layout I’m aiming for: https://imgur.com/a/1jpk7
So I’m pretty sure this can be done.
Mostly I’m curious about XSPC components because I don’t hear much about them. I did find a few reviews of the kit that are pretty good, it’s not molex-powered so that’s a plus as well.
Any thoughts? Opinions? Drastic warnings?
