Hi All
this will be the last of my builds for some time.
I will try and keep this as accuarate as possible but sometime when I get into the project, I don’t document all the stages.

i have progressed from a simple WC setup to something that i believe will be complex and at the same time worth the time and effort.


my main issue with builds in the past, is i have struggled to find a case that has space internally in order to do what i want.

i saw a build log online with a dual reservoir and wanted to do one ever since.


build details are as follows even though i am still finalizing everything.


Case: Thermaltake A700 TG

Motherboard: Asus IX Formula

CPU - Intel Still to be confirmed

RAM - Corsair Dominator Platinum - Torque Edition 32gb

GPU - Dual Gigabyte Aorus 1080TI Waterforce WB xtreme edition

PSU - EVGA 750W

Storage - TBC


Cooling - Full Custom Loop Hardline PETG

Fittings - Primochill Revolver - White Overcap
Resevoirs - Dual Primochill CTR Hardmount , White Trim

Pumps - Dual D5 EKWB Xtop Plexi RGB Edition

CPU Block - EKWB Supremacy RGB

Radiators - 2 x EK PE360, 1 x EK PE120

Fans - 7 x Corsair ML120 RGB

Fan Controller - Corsair Commander Pro
LED - Corsair Lightning Node Pro

Thermaltake Pacific Sensors
Liquid - Primochill Pastel Blue or Electric Blue


some items are on import and scheduled to arrive within the next week and so will have to await this to arrive before the fun begins.



Hope you enjoy the log

Depends when that is, trying to squeeze projects like this in at this time of the year and with 2 isn’t an easy.

If it is you more then welcome to

So preparation of the backplate for the reservoir mount has been done.
Bending drilling and painting still needs to take place

This is what procrastination looks like, everything lying around and nothing being done

Front radiator fitted
Probably one of the hardest connections I have ever done, petg tubing was done completely blind, was a simple 90 degree bend, but measuring the length was difficult, reservoirs are connected to the 360 radiator behind the pumps.
Not easy to tighten and make sure the fittings sealed correctly, but all worked out in the end

Dual tubes across GPUs makes more sense. Blocks are designed to have better heat transfer in a specific flow direction.

Will look into that, but never quite understood the flow of dual connections between cards.

have 360 connected straight after the gpu and that should dissipate the heat
