Z690 Maximus Glacial in Water Cooled Lian Li EVO and ROG 3090 Strix OC24 and EKWBs

Level 8
This was my first attempt to water cool a PC. It’s not as cool as the Batman desk posted here on the forum, but it took me 4-5 days and 60 hours of labor and 3 months of shipping delays. A lot of measuring, bending, and cutting. Almost gave up twice when my last bend on the 3-bend tubes went wrong, or I cut the wrong side of a perfectly bent one after being sleep deprived for 4 days straight. The finished product is not too shabby:

I’m using Samsung G9 at 240Hz with nVidia Sync. System runs mostly cool. Temperatures are around 70C-80C CPU during full load, Ram around 50C, and GPU 69C-75C during benchmarks. Constantly get 18200 to 18700 score in Superposition 4K test. Maximum stable ram I could get was 5400 @ 32-32-32-51 but it performs slightly better at 32-32-32-96 for some reasons.

Awesome build 🙂
