Default NZXT H440 Build

Hi, I just want to present you my build.



NZXT H440
Intel I7 6700k
Gigabyte Z170-X Gaming 7
MSI R9 290+290x Gaming OC
2x 8Gb Corsair Vengeance LPX 2666MHz
2x Samsung 850 Evo 500Gb
XFX 1050W

Currently selling my crossfire now, i'll buy a new RX480, waiting for Vega. I'll probably sell my 6700k this summer for the new Zen CPU when the price will be revealed.

Hope you'll enjoy ;)

Acrylic, not a fan of PETG because it limit the choice of liquid.

This is the first I've heard of this. What is the reasoning behind this?


All coolants w/ dyes will eventually break down, no matter what tubing is used.

Very impressive looking to me! Nice clean lines and I even like the little details of the routing of the GPU power cables.

Great build. The bends on the acrylic look nice and clean.

I didn't believe that EK would sell PETG and Glycol liquids and not say anything if there was an issue. I emailed them and got this reply:

Hello David!

EK-Ekoolant EVO Blood RED (concentrate 100mL) contains ethylene glycol.
https://www.ekwb.com/shop/EK-PSS/EK-PSS-3830046999535.pdf

The PETG tubing from our web shop as well as all other tubing available through our web shop are compatible with all of our cooling liquids. You should not have any negative chemical reactions.
Best regards,
Grega
