We built a test system in the P600S with a full custom cooling loop but this time we stepped it up from our Evolv X build.

At the heart of the system we used an Asus ROG Maximus XI Formula motherboard with Z390 chipset and a water cooling system on the VRM hardware. For the CPU we naturally chose an Intel Core i9-9900K.

When it came to the custom loop we used Phanteks hardware for the main components, including a Phanteks R220 reservoir and DDC pump, Phanteks Glacier C350ip CPU block and a Phanteks Glacier G2080 Ti block on our RTX 2080 graphics card.

The P600S has plenty of space for radiators both at the front of the case and in the roof however we chose to install a single 280mm Alphacool NexXxos ST30 with a nickel plated finish. The radiator went in the roof, which meant we could use the removable radiator rack to ease installation. The radiator was connected to the inlet port on the top of the reservoir which meant we had no obvious way to fill the system with coolant. Our answer was to use a Y piece and to install a Corsair fill port in the radiator rack.

Testing
To put this case through its cooling paces we will be using a test system consisting of a Core i9-9900K, RTX 2080 8GB Founders Edition and an SSD. This system allows us to produce a substantial amount of heat and effectively test the cooling capabilities of the Phanteks Eclipse P600S. For stress testing we use AIDA64 to create the maximum amount of load our CPU and GPU are ever likely to see.
