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.

    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.

    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.

    Well, I just bought some more parts and i'll be updating this once I get everything. I have most of it...
     
    New Parts:
    EK-Classic DP Front PC-O11D D-RGB + SPC PWM
    EK-Momentum Aorus Z390 Master D-RGB - Plexi
    Hydro X Series XR5 360mm Water Cooling Radiator x2
    EK-Torque STC-10/16 - Black Nickel x8
    COUGAR Vortex PWM 120mm (CF-V12HPB) x8
     
    I'm missing the EK-Torque fittings and EK-Classic DP Front PC-011D that replaces the front my case with reservoir and pump. Plugged in one of the Cougar fans to give it a quick run and see how much air it pushes. These are amazing fans, especially for radiators. They are also super quiet. 
     
    Here is my current 3DMark Time Spy score:
     

     
    And some new picture updates I added to my primary post... The color of the water is UV purple and I bought some UV purple LED strips.

    All right... Finally got some progress on this. There have been a few hiccups, but I got a lot of it put together...
     
    The momentum block was a pain to install since it required me to pull my motherboard out and get behind my motherboard's giant back plate, that took up a few hours of my install time. This thing is gonna be a real pain to maintain since the mounting for this CPU block requires access to screws that are under the motherboard backplate. After I got it installed, I kind of put everything on hold because I thought my corsair radiators had rust in them... after closer inspection I found that it was just some discoloration of the alloy... so I started getting everything put together late yesterday.
     
    I honestly thought I was going to have extra fittings... this front panel reservoir used em' all up. Also, this EK front panel is not installed as instructed... If I did that, I couldn't fit the 360mm radiator on the bottom and the fans would be partially blocked on the side panel. So I have it kind of sitting on the front... not quite sure how I feel about it... I could just go back to my other EK reservoir/pump combo.
     
    I also upgraded to a i9 9900KS, i'll post some benchmarks on those once I get everything fired up.
     
    Here is what I have so far:

    That looks like a pain in the ass lol. I too was considering a distribution plate for the front of my case since it’s just fans.But I have the radiators mounted top and rear and it would have meant having to reverse either the top or rear as intake and I just didn’t want to do that as I felt it was going to choke off the air flow too much. Speaking of which looks like you’re in the same boat with only a rear intake now from what I can see?

    I managed to not cut the bajesus out of my fingers, not sure how... I was going to have the side radiator configured for intake, but it was a bit too tight of a fit to get it all hooked up into the loop, so I turned it into an exhaust. Right now the top and side are exhaust and the bottom is intake. These fans are really good at getting air through the radiator fins, I expect it should perform pretty well... I suppose i'll see once I get it all going.
     
    That rear exhaust on my case is odd... I have a 80mm fan I can mount in there, but it doesn't line up straight and the fan sits at an awkward angle. I looked around to see what others are doing with that spot and it seems to be a popular mounting point for the pump/reservoir combo's or it's just not used... The XL version of this case can accommodate a reasonable exhaust fan in that spot, but the regular model not so much... I don't know what I want to do with that spot... I just don't like the way that 80mm fan looks if I try and make it fit.

    Yeah, a few of the spots on the reservoir are optional... 2 are pass through's, one with a flow fan thing and the other one is just a plain pass through. I might not use both... I'm trying to recycle my tube cutouts from the previous loop to avoid having to buy and wait for more tubing, so those pre-cut lengths will probably dictate the route I go with the loop.

    All right, update time.
     
    The pump in the reservoir just couldn't keep any pressure in the loop, so I had to put my D5 pump back into action. Figured that might be a problem with three 360mm radiators. It's all installed now...

    Here's a few pictures:

     

     

     
    I got it all fired up, set-up my XMP profile and ran a quick 3DMark Time Spy benchmark. Pretty decent score for no overclocking.
     

     
    I didn't really want to spend time messing with the CPU overclock tonight, so I overclocked my RTX 2080Ti and ran another one with the CPU at stock.
     

     
    The temps are ridiculous... On the few runs of time spy, the CPU was sitting under 30C, I saw it hit 49C on the CPU portion, it was for just a moment before it dropped back into the mid 30's. My RTX 2080Ti runs cooler too... During the few runs of Time Spy, I saw it hit 35C max...

    Just running a few tabs of Chrome, my temps are in the teens... Added some UV purple die to the water today, I love the way it looks.

    How’s the temps and loop holding up and doing?

    I had to make adjustments to my loop, my front panel reservoir didn't work as well with the flow going from the bottom up to the top. So far it's awesome, temps on my RTX 2080Ti barely ever pass 37C, CPU temps can get in the mid 50C range when at 100% load. I did have to switch up the RAM with a slower kit to get everything stable again... My 4266MHz kit does not mesh well with the i9 9900KS for now. Working with G.Skill support to figure out what I can do about that... I might just sell the kit though. I updated my mod rigs with the most recent pictures to get it eligible. Only 50 or so systems are needed for the next drawing.

    That's a nice build and great temps, if you can use those speeds with 2 sticks and not 4 it might just be the board memory design holding it back.

    I could run benchmarks with it at 4533MHz on the i7 9700K. Not really sure what it is...
