Did a revamp of my case and cooling set-up. I was trying to get some nice benchmarks to show, but 3DMark keeps reporting my results as invalid because the system info didn't populate. I'll try and grab a screen shot later and add it to this thread.
 
System Specs:
CPU: Intel i7 9700K@5.2GHz stable
CPU Cooler: EK-Velocity
Motherboard: Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master
GPU: NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti with EKWB Vector
RAM:32GB G.Skill Trident Z @ 4266MHz CL17
PSU: Seasonic Focus Plus Platinum 850w
SSD: Samsung EVO 970 1TB
Case: Lian Li PC-011
Case Fans: Noctua Redux 120mm (4) & 140mm (2)
Water Cooling Fittings: EK-Tourq Black Nickle 10/16mm for Soft Tubing
Radiators: EK-CoolStream CE 280 & EK-CoolStream SE 280
Pump/Reservoir: EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 RGB PWM

My CPU was hitting low 70C range and GPU was getting into the high 70C range. After the water cooling loop, it's down to the mid 50C range for the GPU and 60C for the CPU. Pretty happy with the outcome.

    I was trying to get some nice benchmarks to show, but 3DMark keeps reporting my results as invalid because the system info didn't populate.



    Only thing I can say about that is to grab the latest standalone version of SystemInfo (5.24 as of now) if needed and try that.
     
    Nice box there, and great temps

    haha yeah man... the Galaxy S8+ camera is really bad with low light. And the quality of the picture is reduced a lot since I had to resize the picture to get it below 500kb to upload here. Maybe i'll steal my wife's Note 10+ for a bit to get some better pictures next time.

    Blue always looks so Good
     
    I usually find that removing the side panel & photos with & without Flash give the best result

    I'll be honest, my first loop was pretty bad. The bitspower fittings and all of that stuff was still pretty new to the custom water cooling stuff on my first attempt and I was looking for the cheapest option for my first water cooling setup.

    Here's a link to that one:
    https://www.modsrigs.com/detail.aspx?BuildID=10630

    Instead of the fittings, I was using cheap hose clamps that you could tighten with a Phillips screw driver. I over tightened a few and had some leaking from the reservoir. I also never configured a drain plug, which will make your experience with water cooling 1000 times better, it's a must have for a custom cooling loop.

    Had to edit my temps in my original post... after a couple days of gaming on PUBG and COD:MW, the CPU temps are a bit higher than they were in benchmarks. I'm still pretty happy with it though.
