Description

This is my nice and new gaming and Rendering rig, with plenty of RGB. The most recent parts bought are the Mobo, CPU and Ram all bought at same time to keep cost down, be some of you may notice that the ram in the pc isn't the Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro's but the Vengeance RED Leds, this is because I hadn't installed them in this build when I took the picture but I have them now installed, it always better to bundle parts together where you can in my books. I also just added another 2 75hz monitors to proper utilise my Strix 1080's grunt.

Yeah I just ran a quick benchmark to show a ball park number as to what to expect out of the box. But thank man. I also ju8st broke my 360 Eisbaer Cooler so had to put it back on stock cooler, But wont be long to I got a new loop on.

Hey How do you like the cooler does it make a difference between a normal 360mm?

a little better maybe just because it has a full copper core whereas most AIO use Aluminium cores that aren't as good at dissipating heat away, but it does get easily overwhelmed if you try adding a GPU block in to the mix, I added a Alphacool GPX-N 1080 M12 block into the loop and the temps raised up quickly so a 360 is good on its own just for the CPU like a 2700x but if you ever want to add something else to it then back it up with another rad and maybe a another pump like the GPX pro block that have pumps built in to them, And I'll also say don't go any bigger than a 360 rad with the Eisbaer AIO as the pump is quite anaemic and struggles with good flow rates with a 420 Rad. But under that size I'd have no trouble recommending the Eisbaer 360 its worth the money.

I can't seem to find the 360mm version and the 420 is around the same price, could you maybe post some cpu temps under full load?

Yes don't go for the 420 version the radiator is so big that the pump is really not sufficient enough for decent flow, I advice getting the 360 over the 420.

I may get this for the system I want to build and put it at the top of the case,will it reach the CPU hopefully? How is it if I just use it for CPU?

Hi thanks for your comments, I recently adviced getting the 360 Eisbear AIO over the 420, I now advice not to buy either has the plastic quick release fittings are very prone to breaking, I have now had 2 quick release fitting fail dramatically both times my pc was covered in coolant, lucky both times the pc was powered off but if it wasn't and then they had failed while powered up my pc would be dead by now, if you do insist on buying a Eisbear please consider changing out the plastic fitting for nice brass ones, they cost about £24 each which isnt cheap i know but considering how much it cost to replace a GPU and motherboard and maybe other items its a small price to pay.

thank you for using that cooler, youre a pioneer

and can you post your temps

As good as this cooler is and its a decent price, i have to advice against buying it, I have recently had 2 plastic fitting fail in dramatic style and both times all my componants was covered in coolant, lucky for me my pc was totally powered down both times so i just had a maticulas clean up to do and all parts was saved from shorting out or totally failing. But if people do insist on buying it because it is a good performer, than my advice is to replace the plastic quick release fittings with some nice solid brass quick release fittings, They cost about £24 tops depending on the one you use, I know its not cheap because you would need to buy new tubing too, but considering what a mobo and GPU and ram can cost to replace its a small price to pay.

Did you name it Locutus as in Locutus of Borg? If so that's hella awesome.

Amazing rig, unfortunate you had bad luck with that cooler. Was considering getting it but I'd rather not risk frying anything lol

Very good, yes I did after Jon-Luc Picard was assimilated by the Borg, I was a big fan of all things Star-Trek in my younger years and I loved the Borg episodes the most, Mainly Star Trek Enterprise & Voyager but wasn't so keen on Deep space Nine, but I likes Enterprise too with Johnathan Archer as captain. And yeah The Eisbaer is a good cooler till fitting break Coz plastic.

I gotta agree with you haha, Deep Space 9 kinda sucked really hard, Enterprise was cut off too soon. The first season was a bit rocky but it became a really good show. But TNG and Voyager were the best in my opinion, Captain Katheryn Janeway was an absolute badass

Agreed, Captain Janeway all the way and sexy 7 of 9. I used to fantasise about that one

Hi mate! Im interested in the Alphacool Eisbaer 420. How is the performance with your 2700X? I have a 3700X with idle temps 50C normal...how are yours?

Hi mate, Sorry I've taken so long in replying, I dont come on to PCPartPicker that often. Personally I've not used the Eisbear 420 but only the 360, I got to say its a really good cooler for the money, your getting a full copper core rad with a solid copper cold plate on the pump res, My idle temps normally around 24c to 26c with my room temps around 23c and under full load never steps over 54c unless its a really warm day then it will go a little higher which is to be expected, But I am next to a open window for most of the time so always pulling in cold air. What I will say is if your buying the Eisbear 420 then I would consider replacing them nasty plastic quick release fitting for some nice solid brass ones as I have had 2 of them fail on me in dramatic fashion in the same day and trust me 2 brass fitting is cheaper than a new cooler or motherboard and GPU etc..., Lucky for me I was using none conductive coolant so no harm done but if had been just water or some other conductive coolant then my PC would have been no more. . Also if your thinking of expanding the loop with extra rad and maybe gpu block then add another pump to the loop because the pump in the Eisbear loses it oomph and becomes quite anaemic as its only a 2600 rpm pump and just cant move fluid around quick enough to dissipate the heat.
