    Watercooled - MXI-E / 9900K / 1080Ti SLi

    Finally retired the RIVE and served me well since 2012 (?) ....with only upgrades to GPU's....the bug got the better of me...toned it down a tad this time and went Mainstream vs HEDT......

    Was a complete tear down and re-build...most of the WC'ing gear was recycled although went with a EK Supremacy Nickel plated block to match the nickel plated 1080Ti Backplates....
    Still tweaking the 9900k...5.1 Ghz has been a bit of a challenge to get stable.....but 5 Ghz was fairly easy ....I did run some benches at 5.1 Ghz and it didnt really seem worth the additional voltage n heat (as usual) to warrant the additional 100 Mhz......

    As usual..set it up on my table first prior to go into the 900D with all the water....wound up connecting all my drives..installing W10 and playing around with some OC'ing prior to going in the case (hence the H60 Cooler and the very old 560Ti Card)

    Im actually fairly pleased at the performance...the 9900K running 5 Ghz 16 threads teams up quite well with the 1080Tis...very happy with the Loop..
    Full on Gaming for a few hrs (Wildlands or Shadow of Tomb Raider) my CPU dances between 45c - 51c and both GPU's sit at 36c and 37c (1c delta)......even looping Heaven for a solid hour the Max they got to was 38c !!!
    I did completely take apart the EK Blocks and clean em out good (always happy when that big O Ring stays seated

    Its certainly not as pretty as some of these Hard Tube builds....oits more like a Nascar vs a Formula 1 .....still packs a punch
