Fractal i9

Hello again

Well my old buildlog "mITX Watercooled (280mm+240mm rad)" is not suiting anymore, as i won the battle (i managed to build the dream PC, and it looked awesome), but i lost the war (Not fulfilling the goal of a silent mITX machine).

If you are interested in the old build, take a look here: https://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?t=81299

I eventually put shifted to a small ATX case, Fractal Meshify C, but having a windowed ATX case with a mITX board have irritated me since it was finished.

So what to do? Looked at 2700x vs 8700k, but was constantly looking at used PC's on a danish forum. And found a i9 7900x, ASRock X299E-ITX and 32GB 2400MHz i swapped with my ITX parts.

I searched on for a ATX board, and luckily i the forum sold their test sample of the Asus ROG Strix X299-E Gaming for 50% of the new cost. Giant WIN

Then picked up a 400mm Phobya rad with 180mm fans to mount external under the desk. 2 EK quick disconnects, and a monoblock for the board.
Still needed RAM, so picked up 16GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX 3733MHz C17 QC. I'm still not 100% sure i'm keeping the i9, so i need low profile ram, as the Meshify has the normal fractal height restriction when you add a 240mm radiator in the top. And lastly i picked up a new Samsung 970 EVO M.2 500GB, as the watercooling is going to block access to the primary M.2 slot

So the parts
Fractal Design Meshify C TG (reused)
Intel i9-7900X Delidded with LM @stock (New, but used)
Asus ROG Strix X299-E Gaming
Corsair Vengeance LPX 3733MHz C17 16GB QC
EVGA 1080ti FE with LM @2025MHz
Samsung 970 EVO M.2 500GB
Samsung 850 EVO 250GB x2 in RAID 0
Crucial MX100 512GB (storage and light games)
Corsair AX860i with Corsair sleeved cables

Cooling
EK Monoblock
EK 1080ti block
Watercool Heatkiller glass res
Aquacomputer D5
Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 LT
EK CE280mm/45mm
EK SE240mm/28mm
Phobya Xtreme 400mm/36mm
Phobya G-Silent 18 700rpm
Corsair ML 120 and 140 on the EK rads.
A blend of EK and Bitspower fittings.
EK Duraclear 10/13 sift tubing
And finally Mayhem X1 UV Green fluid

RGB
Cablemod RGB/UV led strip x2 with one controller.
RGB on the MB and EK Monoblock

I have probably missed something. But what the heck I'll get going, the steam backup has just finished

I'm curious how much of a difference liquid metal will make on a GPU block vs a more traditional paste.

I have used LM from day one, så I have no idea if there is a difference. But at idle it's only a couple of C from the water temp, and under load it's within 10-15c of the water temp iirc. Haven't really thought about it, just that it's under 50c, even with 25+ c in the room

Under 50 is great !


I delidded my 8700K recently and applied LM, Such a massive temp difference, 20'c drop in most cases.

Well build is done

Don't start building, and negotiating on a house at the same time. 2 hole days to finish the build. AND we bought a house

Before i start a bigger update post, first some temps.
The external 400mm radiator is AWESOME.

Pump at static 2000rpm at all times.
On idle:
Fans in the case at 0 rpm, the external rad at 430rpm totally silent and the rad is on the desk about a meter from me.
Room temp 22,2c
Water temp 25,1c
GPU temp 25c
CPU temp 26c

Its insane

Gaming PUBG last night for 1 hour+ (probably 2 hours+)
The internal fans turn on, and run at about 500rpm
Room temp 25,7c
Water temp 34c
GPU temp 43c
CPU temp 46-50c

Right now, after 3 hours + of youtube and surfing
Room temp 26,1c
Water temp 29,3c
GPU temp 30c
CPU temp 31-32c

The GPU are OC'ed, but the cpu is still stock.

2-3C at most if you custom cool and moderate fan speed. Virtually Nothing if you use reference/default cooler

Custom loop with stock paste will net you around 54 at load given a dedicated 240 rad. LM will drop it a few degrees to around 50-52 if you are lucky.

I tested my 980Ti reference cooler and it made 0 difference. Simply because the card had its temp target and kept going till it achieved it.

I'm the same as Korreborg though. I always use LM anyway since I watercool so, removing the block, I might as well replace the TIM too.

Installed CPU, M.2 and RAM in the MB




The LED strip in the monoblock had to be relocated to insure i don't have to disassemble the hole thing to install more RAM.
