    If it's the Fluid Gaming series does that mean it's all the aluminum parts? EK is going towards not selling those anymore, so you wouldn't be able to upgrade any of the water cooling components down the line.

    You mean to tell me that I can actually buy this? Because that's like $3000 in hardware at MSRP, just between the CPU, GPU, and RAM. Accounting for scalper prices for core components and the metric truckload of water cooling hardware in there, this looks almost price competitive.

    i thought it is a proven fact that all these massive liquid cooling is not showing much or even any advantage over normal light fan/liquid cooling system. They are more of a fun/showing off/aesthetic factor. Tell me Im wrong. The real hard core liquid cooling that makes significant difference is submerging in mineral oil with circulating cooling system

    The GPU's heat feeds into the CPU, of course you are going to see over heating. Both of those should only be getting fresh coolant from the radiators and not inline like that. I like the idea of the straight tubes and they look nice but the way the water is moved around is the issue.

    One possible reason of why the temps are higher in this fluid gaming prebuilt is that the watercooling parts used here are aluminium, like all of them to keep the cost down. Unlike the usual copper/brass components. Should explain why it performs worse than the other build with more common watercooling parts.

    holy crap that back is filled out, currently making some custom cables for my 011 dynamic to reduce cable clutter but my cables never took up that much room :P when i open mine up the bottom is (now) a strait view in to my USB hub and fan/RGB management, and at the top lives the PSU which was a normal one but i didn't like how cramped it got so i put a corsair SF750 in there... with the fan facing the motherboard :P (just makes more sence cable routing wise, EPS 1/2 are at the top, besides them are the 24pin's connectors which are both the highest connectors on the motherboard, below the EPS's are the PCI-E's and below that is the peripheral which all needs to end up below the psu so it's perfect... and it can take air from the top and bottom...not ideal only having a 3-5cm gap and having to take it from above or below but should be fine not that crazy of a system). but then i did take out the hdd cage and just mounted my SSD and 3.5" to the plate as oke i need to disconnect the sata data cables and the peripheral sata from the psu but when you take it out it's all so open and clear :P

    I'll say it. This system is overpriced for what it is. They packaged it poorly, probably saving on shipping costs. The motherboard is not acceptable at this price point. The RAM is subpar, for the price I would expect 3600 C16 or C14 memory, especially since it impacts the 5950X's performance quite a bit. The storage configuration is lacking, I would expect at least a PCIE 4.0 drive at a capacity of 2TB, like the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus or the Samsung 980 Pro. The power supply is 80+ Gold rated. To say "the choices won't affect gaming performance that much" is ignorant. For $6000 I would not expect there to be any compromises.

    Why is nobody doing their watercooling in the following order: GPU - Radiator - CPU - Radiator - Pump - repeat? Especially when you already use two radiators. I feel like this loop is not optimized, as the CPU will be fed water that already has been heated by the GPU. ...or am I missing something? I am sure, it does not do a huge difference, but it should do something, I think... Maybe a video about that @LinusTechTips?

    Those crashes from ASUS AMD motherboards is the reason why after a year of painstaking troubleshooting and hardware compatibility problems that I switched over to MSI (documented on the Tech Tips forum). It was that exact ASUS Prime Pro board as well. Running Cura would also cause kernel power failures across all ASUS AMD Ryzen boards. Thankfully extended warranties for tech purchases come with most credit cards, because that helped with the cost of the replacement MSI board. Been issue free for months now (yey).
