My first custom watercooled build. Most of the hardware is from my old pc, only the motherboard, case and watercooling parts are new. Used mostly for gaming and some light workstation apps. Overkill rads and psu I know, but at least I'll have room to add another gpu in the future. :)
I have the 8700k running at 5.2GHz (avx -2) ~1.38v delidded. Tweaked some other stuff as well. Core and package temps stay under 80° for any test I've run so far. GPU and ram are running at stock clocks at the moment.
To avoid a huge mess of cables I decided to build my own, all except the usb-c, usb 3.0 and sata data cables (which I will probably sleeve in the future). Used mostly mdpc-x stuff. The quality of the materials was great and I'm pretty happy with the results.
If you are interested to know more about the parts used feel free to ask.
All in all I think my first attempt at custom watercooling went really well (no leaks, yet)!
PS. Prices are purchase prices in euros.
