Shop the Loop - Red Pill

The iconic Lian Li O11 Dynamic XL, filled to the brim with EK liquid cooling components and the oh-so-desired front EK-Quantum Reflection distribution plate. A look and feel that many wish for. The distribution plate lays the foundation for a stunning, professionally built liquid cooling loop with ample performance on tap. It will easily be the centerpiece of any setup.


Understand the Build

The front distribution plate cleverly integrates the reservoir, powerful Xylem D5 pump, and carefully positioned ports. This streamlines and greatly simplifies the often-arduous process of bending and positioning the hardline tubing. Making horizontal tube runs is a piece of cake now, and if a particular component presents some "wrinkles", a few EK-Quantum Torque Rotary Offset adapters can iron them out in a flash.

Cooling Setup

Bringing the "cool" to liquid cooling are two thick 360mm radiators: the bottom-mounted EK-CoolStream XE 360 and at the top an EK-CoolStream PE 360. Coupled with six EK-Vardar EVO 120ER D-RGB fans, they keep the system cool and quiet no matter what is thrown at them. Luckily, the case is spacious enough that a vertically mounted GPU is possible even with such big radiators. This way, you can show off the GPU water block in all its glory.

The diamond-shaped set-piece on top of the motherboard is an EK-Quantum Momentum VRM Bridge ROG Maximus XII Formula. It serves as a stylish connection between the EK-Quantum Velocity CPU water block and the integrated VRM water block already present on the motherboard. It blends in beautifully and provides some much-needed contrast. The GPU is adorned by the beautiful EK-Quantum Vector RE RTX water block. The look is rounded off with a nickel-plated backplate for some additional bling.

Fittings & Tubing

Fittings tie the build together. EK-Quantum Torque HDC 14 Black fittings are featured, further augmented with red accent rings. A few EK-Quantum Torque Rotary 90 Black adapters are needed for some of the tighter bends. Note that some of the bent tubes that connect the radiators can be avoided with clever use of EK-Quantum Torque Rotary Extenders and 90 adapters. Several segments of straight and pre-bent 14mm acrylic tubing complete the loop.

Customize to Your Taste

The overall theme and color can, of course, be fully customized by changing the compressions and accent rings, coolant, and editing color profiles of the numerous D-RGB LEDs. But you must admit that with the predominant black color of multiple components, red is the obvious accent choice. ????

Hardware used in this example build:

  • PC Case: Lian Li PC-O11D XL
  • Motherboard: ASUS® ROG MAXIMUS XII FORMULA

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Check your GPU for a compatible block HERE
  • Choose the correct CPU block for your platform HERE
  • Depending on the motherboard used, the CPU socket might not be in the same horizontal position. Offset fittings are needed to help you align the tubing horizontally.
  • Flow has been reversed in this build in favor of perfect horizontal tubing. Performance is slightly impacted as the flow is not optimal.
  • Check your motherboard for available D-RGB and PWM headers. Choose the proper cable accessories for the D-RGB and PWM connection of the EK-Loop products accordingly.
  • Do not use chemicals or alcohol on Acrylic/Plexi surfaces.
  • Do not use acidic preparations or chemicals to clean your loop.
  • Contact our Customer Support if you have any questions.
