2 x Sabrent Rocket 1TB NVMe4 (Prime day specials)
2 x 16GB DDR4 C16 (Option to upgrade to 64GB in the future)
Eve Spectrum 27" 4K IPS 144Mhz
HP Reverb G2

TBD:
Fans, do I go with NB Eloops, Noctua industrial or something else altogether?

Layout: At the moment I have one 360 standing vertically with a 240 on top horizontally, thinking 2 x 360 horizontally in pull on the bottom and push on the top.


CPU - 12 or 16 Core, depends on the day, hour, where the moon is on which CPU i'm leaning towards at any given time.

So at the moment Tuxedo is running ok, handles mostly everything I throw at it , just will be unable to handle a Reverb G2 so fixing that and tidying up some bits and bobs.

Well the Sabrent's arrived with 1 DOA, looked to Mr Amazon for a RMA and that was a no go for 1/2 devices, they did offer me to keep it and take 50 quid but my soldering skills aren't up to that. The dodgy one heats up massively so packing both up for a refund, pity, it was a good price. Samsung 980 PRO 2TB, here we go.

R9 5950X on order. Had read somewhere that orders were opening later this afternoon so I should get it by Christmas :P

Looks like it is going to be a monster!

Got a double digit queue number from OCUK today for the 5950X so might even hope it arrives before my birthday (Dec 11th)

I'm leaning towards the 6800XT now instead of the 6900XT - I'll go for a reference card and throw a waterblock on it so whatever I can get on the day :) One thing I will be watching is the release times, OCUK had changed from 5pm to 2pm the night before and I wasn't paying attention.

Sufficient performance :) It's a constantly evolving build that sometimes goes months without being tweaked or touched to weeks on end with the case open where it might get completely stripped and rebuilt.
The oldest parts now are the radiators, fans followed by one of the HDDs (8yrs for fans & one of the rads)
Case, NVMe, memory are about 9 to 18 months old
GPU and CPU coming up to 18 months and 16 months respectively.
MB is less than 3 months old.
Aquacomputer stuff varies too going from about 3yrs to a couple of months.

To the wider audience, do you reckon I might be able to get away with a 65x360 rad running push/pull on its own?

A single 360 for those 2? No way no how IMHO. My preference would be double 360s *minimum*, triple 360s preferred. But this entire hobby is mostly opinion-based, LOL! But a 16 core CPU and that GPU won't be cooled comfortably with a single 360. Your liquid temp would be way too warm for my liking.

Keep with the 600mm combo then :)
I'm swapping out the PL2's for NB eLoop PWM jobbies, they can go upto 2000rpm so should have enough static grunt to cool 500W or so.
The 5950X should arrive the week after next if I'm to believe an update from OCUK. Missed out on the 6800XT rush, still ed off with it, links put up on Twitter first before regular customers.
Need some advice on the drain pipe setup, currently it is a t junction into pump inlet with a 200mm tube into a ballvalve. I was thinking of taking the tube away and putting a ball valve onto the end of the t junction with the tube being fitted as needed? Also running from pump to lower side of card instead of upper side as currently.
I also have a 3D printer coming soonish :) means I'll be able to print a mount for the Aquaero and Hubby to make them more respectable and I'm thinking 3 shrouds to allow the fans suck air directly in from the side panel more easily.
