Introduction

 

I've been an enthusiast for over two decades now, but I've never bothered with watercooling my PC. It's not something that most enthusiasts would admit, but I simply never got into it, and never had the time. I thought that it was high time that I got into it, and began working behind the scenes on securing someone locally that could do two things: build watercooled PCs, and they had to be a case modder.

Well, earlier this year I began talking seriously with a case modder that happened to live within a 15-minute drive of me, Ryan Hooper, who now mods PCs for TweakTown on a part-time basis. His first gig was to build an EK Water Blocks system using their new EK Fluid Gaming components, which is what we're here to share with you today.

 

 

What Is EK Fluid Gaming?!

 

EK Water Blocks expanded out in the more "mainstream" water cooling market with its new EK Fluid Gaming components, but EK are the masters of their craft... so if you want to build an insane high-end custom rig, EKWB is what you want.

 

For those who want a silent PC experience, liquid cooling is many times more effective at cooling your system than air cooling. CPUs and GPUs are only getting hotter and hotter as more and more transistors and technology are being crammed into them, which is where EKWB comes into play with their plethora of watercooling components.

Silent gaming is a big part of this, and when you're overclocking this is even more important. EK Fluid Gaming reduced the sound output of our system by leaps and bounds, with the TITAN X now not having a fan AT ALL, it's completely silent in operation. During gaming, totally silent.

 

EK provides an easy step-by-step instruction guide for every water cooling kit they sell, with an "error-preventing installation design" used in all of EK's new Fluid Gaming gear. There's just a few screw required, and that's about it. Awesome stuff from EK.
