make sure you Add a drain to your loop - make maintenance Much easier & less messy

Gone for the uv dye so I can see if I have leaks :-)

Was going to add one so that I can pull a vacuum on the system of -0.5 bar then have the drain in the fluid, once opened it will draw the liquid in and eliminate most air bubbles. (Will see what the tubes can deal with before collapsing lol)

The rad is basically an a/c rad so can take a full vacuum, but i think it is the plastic top of the gpu might crack 😂

Ok I think everything but the pump, and Z390 Dark board is now ordered.
 
I just need to work out the PWM lines to rad. I have no issues making the cables, I don't have a dedicated Molex crimper however I have things I bet will work fine, so I can make some 3.5meter PWM cables, I presume the Pump(s) will go into CPU Rad fan header? so need to run two sets of cables for that, and then a single PWM for the fans to the Splitty9 hub.  
 
IS there anywhere you can buy these cables pre-made before I go buying bits to make them.  Can you confirm that you use the CPU Fan header (presume you use this due to the fact it surely has an alarm if the fans stop (i.e pump)).
 
Excited to get building. :D

I’ve ordered some molex 4pin connectors to make my own loom up.

Great news Z390 Dark has finally arrived :-)

Had a quick test fit and gpu doesn’t fit in the case lol 😂
Great!

I could move it to the top of the case as there is plenty of room and just weld in a hanger to hold the gpu properly and mill out the back of the case etc.

Pros - clean looking build with GPU at the top and display point forwards also, any spills means gravity works in the favour of gpu and goes down not going on gpu...

Con - long pci cable required and modding required to make fit.

I presume that there is no problem running like 50-60cm pci extension as electrons do travel at the speed of light lol so can’t see 60cm causing a problem, specially if a good quality shielded cable etc?

I can put it at the bottom of the case but its then in the way, and thats the easy way out lol

It all depends on the quality of the cable. I have a 300mm Samtec one that is lossless over PCIEv3 and v4 x16. 3M makes a cheaper alternative cable that ive heard is pretty good. The cheap 20 dollar ones will have issues.

Thermaltake platinum 60cm riser cable any good?

Edit, think I will need the 100cm version...

Only issue I see is running the riser cable up the back of the case very close the psu (basically touching the side of it) so depends how good the shielding is on the cable...

The 100cm version is £95. So must be made of pure gold, silver and colbot.

Let us know what you guys think about a 1 meter pci cable :-)

Silly question, If I buy a 4k monitor with a max of 60hz, can you still bench mark the gpu? I.e doesn’t matter about monitor or does it effect results?

Just thinking 8,847,360 pixels being driven at 4:4:4 10bit is going to kill the gpu?

Just ordered the Molex 63811-1000 crimping tool. £50 delivered, but pays to have the right tools for the job.

This is for the Molex fan and psu connectors.

Still looking for advice on the GPU extension cable :D 
 
I ordered my monitor today, defo not a gaming monitor but will let you know how it turns out for games lol..
 
Eizo CG319X, response time = still waiting, input lag = major delays expected, colour accuracy = EPIC!, Price = Upsetting..
 
This is a colour accurate monitor for my photography and printing.  I will however buy a gaming monitor once my back account recovers.
 
Ture 4k DCI monitor here are the spec for those how can't be arse to search for them lol...
