Best Computer 2022

(This article was written on 2022)

(Look at this photo album)

check here to find the best aftermarket graphics card

Windows 10 Debloater Software (ChrisTitusTech win10script)

GPU (Graphics Processing Unit)

Geforce RTX 3090 TI

Geforce Next Gen (September 2022)

Aftermarket Asus or MSI (check it is thier highest tier model and has 3 8-pin connectors)

__________________________________________

Don't do bottom rad since impossible to drain, stick to 2 rads (top and side) to reduce pump speed and you won't notice a difference of 1-2 celcius.

EK-Quantum Vector (front water cooling block)

EK-Quantum Vector (rear water cooling block)

CPU block

RAM and Motherboard Blocks? (get RAM with temperature sensors)

$379.99 - EK-Quantum Reflection PC-O11D XL D5 PWM D-RGB - Plexi (Pump + Reservoir Combo) (EKWB)

(two pumps is only for redundancy in case of failure, not for improved performance)

(rinse out water blocks, tubing, radiators, reservoirs with distilled water first before using)

(best radiator chart)

3 - 360 Radiators XE (bottom then horizontal GPU), PE (top), SE (side) (higher RPM of fans with thicker radiators that restrict airflow)

$119.99 - EK-CoolStream XE 360 (Triple) (EKWB)

$107.99 - EK-CoolStream PE 360 (Triple)

25 mm fans (anti-static) Arctic or Lian Li or EK?

$34.99 - Thermaltake 10 fan PWM hub (Amazon) vs.

$9.99 - ARCTIC Case Fan Hub - 10-fold PWM (Amazon) vs.

OCTO fan controller for PWM fans

(top and bottom fans set to exhaust, provides best temps but must dust regularly, side and rear intake)

adjusting fan curves

$195.95 (should be $75.25) - NEXT flow sensor (amazon)

14 mm tubing from top and bottom radiators and 90 degree torque fittings. (14mm OD tubing, corsair Acrylic)

Drain port on front outside (Bitspower Black Drain Valve)

$? - Thermal Grizzly Minus Pad 8

17w/mK Fujipoly pads (best)

Corsair XL5 coolant performs better than the pastel EK cryofuel (about 1.5 litres of the Purple then added maybe about 250ml of the clear to dilute it)

(GPU idles around 25c's, the CPU around 30c's.... under load GPU stays under 40c's and CPU hovers around 50c's... all with the fans at 50% speed, I gain a few C's if I push the fans to 100% but I'd rather have the silence)

(a basic $5 temperature sensor wire that comes out of port on distro, lets me know how warm the coolant in my loop gets. My coolant idles around ambient room temp which is 20-25c, and under load stays under 35c.)

(How were the temps and flow rates when you had the 3 radiator setup (top, bottom, side) versus the 2 radiator setup (top, bottom)? they were pretty much the same, maybe a degree or 2 different, but the only difference I noticed is since I had more rad space I can run the fans a little quieter... however it isn't worth it to me because it just means I have to run my pump a little louder, and the pump is the loudest thing in my build. These Arctic P12 fans are amazingly quiet even at high rpm's)

(How do you flush the distroplate without making a mess? I don't like clunky dedicated drain ports so when it's time to flush I just flip the case on it's butt and attach it then. the bottom radiator with this setup is impossible to flush out, I literally have to take it out and do it manually, that includes the lower tubes being full of fluid when I'm taking it all out. This isn't a big deal since if fluid spills it won't spill anything other than the radiator itself.)

$7.99 - Lian Li Graphic Card Anti-sag Bracket (Micro Center)

set fan curve to go to 100% when temp goes to 45 C
