Recently I made a plan to put a water block on my CPU, i have had a Corsair 900D case for quite a while now and i was running my i7 - 6850K Corsair H115i AIO cooler in push and pull configuration. So i made the following changes , i was advised by people to go for soft tubing as it was my first time. Currently running my CPU at 4.4Ghz @ 1.355V while gaming max temps are 58C and on stress testing on real bench the maximum temps were 68C after running it for 2 hours.

i would like to give a special thanks to

for all his help.

Admirable
Looks good but a little messy; soft tubes are indeed good for first timers; I would had rerouted the long tube differently; and i would had gone for reddish pink tubes to complement the custom PSU cables.
And also, i am a huge fan of witchers 3 wild hunt; Nice build and nice wallpaper.
 
well done man.
theoretically, you'd see even lower temps if the radiator was mounted in front as intake or at the bottom of the case.
next step wold be adding GPU to the loop ?
if so, HWLabs radiators are kinda better. As well as Noctua NF-A14x15 fans ;)

Nice Job man, I never went with custom water cooling on my rig, Though I've built a few custom loops to others. I was actually looking at the EK bundles that Micro Center has, but I just don't want to deal with maintenance.

Thanks i know i could have routed the big tube differently but unfortunately its too thick and not too flexible

well you are right, on paper the rad as in flow would give lower temps but the problem remains i do not think i could mount it in the front or the side because of the lack of space and unfortunately i do not think a gpu block for my zotac 1080ti amp extreme is available yet
