    Discussion Budget water cooling solution for a Vega 56 in 2021 ? (ref design)

    OK so TX 120 or 240 sounds like it will work, you'll still need to fit a pump. Can you measure if this will fit? https://www.alphacool.com/shop/ausgleichsbehaelter/pumpenaufsatzbehaelter/24196/alphacool-eisstation-40-dc-lt-behaelter Or maybe add a CPU pump block in the loop...

    Discussion Budget water cooling solution for a Vega 56 in 2021 ? (ref design)

    The 2 cases you've stated has no room for any radiator to be inside. You'll need a radiator to cool the waterblocks. If you must use those cases, you can drill a 20~22mm hole and insert a fill port. Try searching 'G1/4" Fillport Fitting'. You can then connect an external radiator such as...

    Log Would appreciate your thoughts on my prospective build

    AFAIK, Meshlicious doesn't officially support Mini-DTX, or is subject to change. Or maybe change the motherboard to something like X570 or B550 Strix ITX? I'd say wait for meshlicious to release or get an NCASE M1.

    I'm fully aware of the OEM/ODM side of PSUs. I was mostly talking in a "the brand reputation is just OK." kind of tone.

    News EKWB VTX pumps

    I'd suggest doing reservoir-less, using a CPU pump block combo. with DDC there's only the Swiftech apogee drive II, but there's 2 prototypes being developed. https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/freeflo-48mm-cpu-block-pump.9837/ and...

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    yeah, don't bother with the lesser pump if it's not compatible. My guess is that SPC pump impeller is not the same height of DDC. I'd suggest going for only DDC/VTX compatible top.

    News EKWB VTX pumps

    I guess it's true, but if they're the same price and after some reviews, it can be worth a try. main advantage I'm hoping is the 11% minimum duty cycle. My DDC pump is a bit noisy for my taste...
