    Called it the X Factor. Since i see the X tubing mark.  You could have rearrange it another way, but congratulations. I like the red tubing it pops in the black background

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    Re: Early BirthDay Present 2021/04/18 11:46:23 (permalink)
    Thank you guys. It was an early Birthday present. My birthday is not till June, but Kelly wanted to get me something for my build. I scored the cpu $250 new and she knew I would not wait till June. The tubing needs some work. I have bitspower crystal link hard tubing. I want to upgrade to a D5 pump. So I am going to order the EK 140mm Distro plate w D5 and install it where my rear fan is and run either the crystal link hard tube or Copper line w Powder coating.
    Gaming so far
    Intake fans 1300 rpm
    Exhaust 1200 rpm
    Pump 85%
    Cpu 61c
    GPU 35c to 40c GPU Hot spot 46c
    VRM 41c
    RGB OFF

    I am always open to suggestions
    Sometimes I get in my own way.

    X Factor does seem fitting.

    Looks good.   You did what I thought about doing with my Eiswolf.

    I wish that it had full coverage channels rather than just a GPU block, but I am still really impressed with the temps I'm getting from it.

    Very nice, the crossing tubes makes a stylish X. Also if anyone ever asks you the general location of ram in a PC tell them, "Red X marks the spot". I like how the water block you have seems to cover the entire CPU.

    Honestly the mono block is my favorite part. This cpu is almost double the wattage of my previous cpu and my vrm temps are lower now running double the wattage. The quality of the EK block is outstanding. The included PSI tester made the build really easy

    4 years old and still going strong, AT this point i might just wait for an RTX 4080 maybe prices will be realistic by that point. In a perfect world people will stop buying from scalpers and they will get stuck with their inventory

    I'm thinking your Birthday already passed but Happy Birthday anyway :)
    If you haven't named the build yet I'd name it "Blade" after the movie/character, the black and red mix gives it that vibe.
