I had this computer for almost one year. I really love the H500M case. I had an AIO cooler master ML 240 RGB. I had a dream of making a custom water cooled loop in it. Finally had the money to do so. I ordered everything from EK water block. While I was waiting for the parts to arrive, I relocated my 2,5 inch SSD to the back. I fabricated a mount for the reservoir with pieces of metal.

 

Then I received the shippement from EK.

So I had Everything I needed to build my dream machine.

It was my first time doing a custom loop. I didn't wanted to have multiple angled fitting in my build, just to get the level of difficulty a bit higher. I used the nice EK kit to cut and bend my tube. I took my time and think I did pretty good for a first time. I only had 6 pieces of 500 mm and still got one untouched. I did the triple bend on the first try. The one from the front rad to the reservoir. I was really nervous while doing the tube cause I didn't have a lot of play with only 6 tube and a lot of 90 degrees angled to do and no angled fitting. The S shaped tube wasn't easy but I managed it the second try. I think the S shape one from the pump to the drain valve is the one I'm most proud of.

I had this Nvidia Geforce 2080 ti since launch in 2018. It was hot and loud while gaming. This is why I wanted a custom loop in the first place. So I opened it up and installed the ek block on it.

I had to drill some holes on the top fans tray because 3 140 mm would not fit correctly with my 360 mm rad. I have a push/pull configuration both on top and front with ek Vardar rgb 120 mm inside the case and cooler master pro 140 mm fan outside the case. I didn't really like the 2 huge 200 mm fan a the front and 3 120 mm fan would have been a bit small to fill all the space at top and front.

The last mod I did and the most painful one was to resleeved all the green wire from my cablemods extension. I ordered light green thinking it would be like the nvidia green but it wasn't. I selected paracord instead of nylon. Since these extension are quite expensive I ordered some Teleios NV green from mainframe custom wich is really close to nvidia green. The cablemods light green was way to pale. The teleios nv green is on the right and the cablemods light green is on the left.
