New build with Corsair 6500X case


Well, it's been up & running for a week, and coolant temps have stayed below 35ºc, CPU temps have stayed below 60ºc...all whilst staying silent (or at least I can't hear anything over the fans of my external HDD enclosure and the work Zbook next to me).

There's even a iCUE preset for the LCD pump cover to show both CPU and coolant temps - pity it's limited to dual sensor displays only as I'd have liked to be able to customise that further.

It did take me a while to find the hidden USB-C port on the end of the rad even with videos showing the location exactly. Seems the 90º iCUE Link cables were fitted in a manner that blocked the port. A bit of reorienting and I found the blasted thing ;)
