Question about water cooling

20 cm almost certainly will suffice for 2 containers. 
Reminds me that I'm not looking for performance but more aesthetics. So even if I do not get another 360 radiator at the bottom, one standing (where the distro plate is with you) and another one at the top of the case will suffice (2 loops of course). 

Thanks so much for the tips. You brought me a lot of food for thought (and homework 😊) I have a few months until Amad and NVIDIA's inventory and prices stabilize and then I will order parts. 
I will probably go for glass pipes even though it is a lot of work and probably more expensive. But work and construction is part of the fun. 

Thank you

Do you know a site that allows you to plan the loop visually?
That is, select the hardware (case, , Video card, etc.) and then stretch pipes as I want to visually see how it came out?

The subject of the custom loop is a subject that is a bit difficult to move or learn on one leg.

In principle, from my personal experience, when building a first custom loop, as the company said here, you should start with flexible piping.

Because you want to build something very aesthetic it will suit you less because flexible plumbing is usually less beautiful and it is less impressive.

PTEG is the second option but in order to reach a high level of finish and smooth bending you need first of all suitable tools and secondly experience.

You need to know what the ideal distance for bending from the heat blower you need to know how long to rotate the tube and at what stage to perform the bending.

I would not go in first construction on glass piping.

It is also important that you buy spare piping that you can make enough mistakes to eventually reach the level of finish you want.

The first step in building a loop The first thing you need to have on hand is the chassis you choose, so that first of all you can perform proper loop planning.

That you do not plan the loop on photos of the package you have chosen online because believe me it is never accurate.

You need the enclosure in your hands to measure and sketch and write down neatly where each pump will sit where each block sat and in the third step plan the piping.

In a way that will look aesthetically pleasing and of course be effective.

 

From my personal experience in my first transition from flexible piping to PTEG piping I have had quite a few improvements so it is always important to bring a spare and even a lot of spare.

 

Regarding the purchase of equipment I have not seen anything in the country at an affordable price.

When it comes to pumps and radiators I would suggest going for reputable companies like EK.

When it comes to fitting you can go for cheaper companies.

 

Look there are lots of videos And tutorials that can help you a lot.

The ultimate goal of my design is glass pipes.
The intermediate step is working with PETG pipes but only as a mockup. I do not need to reach a high level of finish with PETG.
More than that, I do not need to do any bending in PETG because, as I said, my goal is glass and in glass piping there are no bends (i.e., there are but not with the help of "home" tools). Everything is straight pipes and the design itself is in the fittings (angles, elevators, valves, etc ...)

I saw quite a few videos on YouTube and I just stopped mostly because of the stage (like you said) that I need to localize on the hardware I want.
I wait a few weeks until the stock and prices of And Nvidia will stabilize and then we'll see what pays off (in terms of price, availability, performance, etc ...)

Excellent if so was a success :)

I will join the hot recommendations on EKWB, I ordered from them many times and was not disappointed.

They are based in Slovenia, so their delivery is usually reasonably priced.

More niche things or that EKWB does not produce I ordered from Performance PCs, which are cool, but their delivery is very very expensive to the country (shipping from Miami).

 

For example, I ordered BitsPower's orders through ppcs and they have a sufficient inventory (Bitspower maintains thousands of different and weird part numbers in dozens of different finishes)

 

This case is indeed difficult, and the selection in the country is significantly more limited, and it is quite impossible to order dance (not for a fortune, and even then you risk fractures)

 

Pipes and fluids - love the mayhems, they have professional and courteous customer service, a selection of colors, and they are British (close == cheap delivery)

 

A little about my experience:

My project started about seven (?) Years ago (fuck I did not realize it took so long) and it has largely not ended since, my loop ran 3 years in a row, then dismantled for two years and a few months ago I revived it again.

 

I work with flexible hoses 3/8 on 5/8 of mayhems after an amazing experience with primochill pipes inside a very cut Define R4 case (this is the part I want to replace today most of all) with EK blocks and a Black Ice radiator (size 360, Slight but carrying 6700K and 1080) 

 

good luck to you!
