Let's learn modding with TwisterMod | Part 2
Dear sportsgaming.win readers, our second appointment with Twister Mod and Asus ROG on how to make a mod for our PC arrives. In case you missed our first episode, we advise you to retrieve it in order to have a clear idea on the subject. In the first part, in fact, you will find a short, but useful introduction on what a mod is, as well as several tips from our Twister. You will then get a precise starting point and help to orient yourself in a world that for newbies can prove to be decidedly vast and complex.

In this video the artist from Ferrara begins to reveal some of the customized components of the mod he intends realize, even if the video focuses mainly on the preparation of the PC, starting from the assembly. Twister, in fact, shows the assembly of CPU, RAM and waterblock memories on the fantastic Crosshair VIII Formula by Asus ROG, on which the video card, also liquid cooled, is also inserted.

A characterizing aspect of this realization, in fact, is the custom liquid system. So let's try to deepen the concept of custom loop, going to see what are the factors to take into consideration and any pros and cons of its adoption.

Custom loop: let's talk about it

First of all by loop we mean the circuit that allows the liquid to pass through the desired components to dissipate the heat produced. All-in-one heatsinks also represent a loop. However, these are defined as closed loops, as they do not allow any intervention by the user. The custom loops, on the other hand, or customized systems, are built independently by the user, who can decide which components to cool with the liquid. These are solutions that require specific skills and abilities, but capable of giving much higher satisfaction in terms of performance.

Among the “pros” we undoubtedly find the overclocking margins that these systems allow, as well as obviously a much more efficient cooling. The heat is dispersed much faster than traditional heatspreader of air heatsinks, which means that temperatures are maintained much lower than other solutions. Furthermore, the aesthetic aspect should not be neglected, much more pleasant, captivating and futuristic which leaves more space for hardware components thanks to a clearly reduced footprint.

If on the one hand, however, the advantages are clear and evident compared to systems air, there is no shortage of critical issues that must be taken into consideration. First of all, the risk factor linked to the coolant. An assembly error could result in a loss that would endanger the electronic parts. From this it follows that the realization requires more attention and competence in order not to risk compromising from the single component to the entire computer. Not to be neglected is maintenance, which requires fluid changes and constant checks to ensure that the system remains efficient and does not risk damaging the hardware of our PC due to wear. It closes the price, much higher than that of the most classic cooling systems.

In short, it is a solution addressed to users who have a great desire and passion to dedicate to their computer, or even to fully surfed people aware of what they will have to face. In this second video TwisterMod will offer you many valuable tips that will allow even beginners to orient themselves and understand how to create their own custom loop in a simple, fast and (almost) completely risk-free way.

In in particular, our advice is to focus your attention on mounting the kit for the video card. Twister in fact guides us through the disassembly of the wonderful Asus ROG Strix Radeon RX 5700 XT, underlining the phases that require more attention, as well as in the assembly of waterblock and backplate on it. We leave you then to the Twister video which, for those who decide to adopt a custom liquid system, contains a small final gem.
