    Here is his build completed, he said to post some pics. I figured he'd invite me over to check out his new gaming pc after sticking with him for like 5 months making suggestions and answering about 1000 emails and questions, but did he invite me over? No he didn't, I'd like to see how well three titan x's run a 4k monitor.

    I'm not sure if he gave it a name but I call his pc Xenomorph. It has the X for the titan x's and Xenomorph is the scientific name for the alien creature and it has acid for blood like the acid green coolant flowing through his pc, but anyway here's most of the specs excluding fan splitter cables and extension cables.

    Caselabs mercury S8 case with pedestal
    Rampage V Extreme
    5930k
    Titan x 3 way sli
    G.Skill Ripjaws 4 32GB 3000MHz (8x4GB)

    UV lighting from Dazmode
    4 x Aquacomputer inline temp sensors (2 for each loop)
    2 x Aquacomputer flow meters (1 for each loop)

    All water blocks are EK including the gpu backplates and 45-90 degree fittings, the tubing fittings are monsoon chain gun fittings.

    Monitor - Benq BL3201PH

    Led fans in the pedestal and uv fans in the case.


    There are no problems to report.

    I had it configured with more fans but he didn't install them and it kinda looks unfinished, maybe he'll read this and install them. 5 more uv fans in the case and 4 more for the pedestal (2 for each end of the pedestal) would look nice and give more green light at the bottom, he has the fan splitter cables to do it too.

    Yeah the monoblock is a sexy piece of hardware, the monarch ram blocks almost make it look like a little race car engine (the ram blocks being the valve covers), the sli terminal looks nice too.

    Here's some more pics he sent me a bunch.

    The EK monoblock performs as well as it looks, he used the Gelid solutions thermal compound, the 5930k idles at 31c and overclocked to 4.65GHz with 1.29v, cpu temps don't break 70c with the Realbench stress test so yeah the monoblock is doing a great job and very impressive. I told him he has some room to push higher, It seems he has a good cpu too, I'll let you know the final results if/when he wants to.

    Definately. Those are awesome results that he is getting. It would be a shame not to see how far he can go.

    He's been fooling with it and it seems he may have hit the wall, at 4.875GHz with 1.45v the realbench stress test runs but eventually crashes. Temps are still ok so I told him to try it up to 1.50v.

    Hopefully it will stabilize, I told him not to go any higher than that.

    EDIT: He's been running the benchmark which requires more voltage than the stress test. Let's see what happens today with just the stress test.

    SO in the meantime I contacted Intel chat support and asked them what the max voltage for the 5930k is and I'm very surprised that I was told 1.30v and temps shouldn't go over 67c. If this is the case then 4.65GHz looks to be it.

    I give CrazyDiamondFL an A+ on assembling/installing everything and not having any problems, that's quite a build for a first timer, he took on a big challenge and handled it very well with a little guidance but he did change some things at the very end from the original plan.

    1) He should have kept the tubing going from the components to the bottom rads then to the top rads instead of going to the top rads first. No harm in doing it this way it just looks a little awkward. I would have spun the top rads 180 degrees.

    2) Lighting - He ordered five 12" uv strips, I'm not sure if he installed all five but he has connections for 7 strips, might want to add a couple more strips the side with the gpu waterblock isn't lit at all. For the best look it's best to keep the uv lights hidden. UV lights are controlled on channel 6 of the Lamptron fan controller.

    The lighting was probably the most difficult for me as I've only ever used the cold cathodes which uses molex power connectors, but the cathodes have the bulky inverter so we decided against those. If you ever want to light up your case with a bunch of uv leds here's how to do it.

    Start with a good fan controller preferably 30w per channel or higher.

    Depending on how many lights you want to use you can get a 3 pin fan splitter cable up to 6 fans, then connect these 3 way to 3 pin type 10s cables, one will allow you to connect three lights. With a 6 way fan splitter cable you could have 18 lights, be sure your controller can handle it the lamptron fc5-v3 can handle up to 30w per channel.

    We used a "3 pin" 4 fan splitter cable and added one splitter for a 5 fan cable for a total of 15 lights, 4 in each reservoir which is 8 and 7 left for led strips.

    3 pin 6 way fan splitter cable - Any 3 pin fan splitter cable will work.

    https://www.dazmode.com/store/produc...hite-metallic/

    3 way to 3 pin type 10s cable - we got 5 of these, one for each fan connector.

    https://www.dazmode.com/store/search...rds=16&x=0&y=0

    Then these type 9 extension cables in different length's.

    https://www.dazmode.com/store/search...rds=16&x=0&y=0

    Then of course the uv strips, select cable option - No need !

    https://www.dazmode.com/store/produc...-led-strip-uv/

    5mm uv led - cable option No need ! - these didn't need extensions in CrazyDiamondFL's build.

    https://www.dazmode.com/store/produc...odular-led-uv/


    3) Need a few more fans to make it look finished.

    But other than that it's an awesome build and I was happy to help as much as I could.

    Hi,

    This block look really nice, I'm tempted to get it. Would it be worht it to upgrade my koolance cpu block to this full board monoblock ? I can't decide if I want to ditch my cpu block for this one. I believe that the only real benefit would be esthetic.

    Hello Zordrack

    There won't be much difference in cpu temps but what you'd get with the monoblock is liquid cooling on the motherboard vrm's and southbridge as well as the cpu.

    I wanted to share the result with my block. The motherboard and vrm idle at 29 c and 36 c. The cpu temps stayed the same as before.

    Here's how it was before:

    I've redone some work on tubing and cable management. I'm pretty satisfied with the results and the block look awesome.

    Wow that looks nice Zordrack, you got the UV going on and your tubing looks like a neon sign, I like it ! You switched from cold cathodes to led's and what a difference huh? At least it looks like you did.

    The monoblock changes the whole look and definitely looks better. If you're going liquid cooling with the rampage v extreme I see no reason not to get the monoblock, I think it's the best looking cpu/motherboard block there is.

    Nice job I give you an A+ too !

    Thank you for showing us.
