Its great, but running close to 50% use on both so i just ordered another 1TB.

How was it fitting your mobo in this case? Did it block and grommet holes?

  • 4 months ago

It was a tight fit it did block two holes from my block but I was able to ignore it and not require to put fittings into it.

Looks good man! +1 I want to make a water custom loop but i'm terrified lol

I was in the same boat but i had to try it out to see if its as simple as they say and being that it was my first time doing I took my time to plan it out and make sure i got all matching parts that are compatible. Took about one month to get everything together and about 4 days to do all the bends and test it out. Though what i would recommend is start with soft tubing as andyp297 but when you do switch to hard tubing save the soft tubing. reason i say this is i had one problem were i had to drain the loop 4 times because I had to get the CPU block replaced due to RGB not working and then the GPU RMA due to similar issue. If I had used soft tube to test everything then once I know its ok I can just drain it the one time and then put on the hard tubes. Hope this helps in future builds.

Ditto! But I'm really tempted to try on my next one.

Best thing is to start with a soft tubing loop that will help build confidence to go hardline.

Nice build! What are the temps of the cpu?

  • 13 months ago

on idle it sits about 35-38c on full load 55-59c.

i do not trust that is your first WC ever, bending tube isn't hard but this result is almost pro well very nice build love the smoked tube

  • 13 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks, only reason it looks so nice is barbecue i wasted sooooo many tubes to get it as perfect as i could to the point that some tubes i just didn't want to bend and just added 90 degree fittings to cheat my way through it. i might still buy one more tube to straighten the one that leads from GPU to water block.

  • 13 months ago

you could go same as the cpu to rad and then straight to Wb but might be block with top tubes, anyway i'm sure it will look neat :)

Liquid cooling your GPU? What temps are you getting on it?

  • 13 months ago

same as my CPU temps on idle it sits about 35-38c on full load 55-59c

Does it matter which is in or out on the card?

  • 13 months ago
  • 1 point

On this card i dont believe so because there is fins on both sides but i just have the habit of in left and out right.

  • 13 months ago
  • 1 point

I'm really loving the build! Just one question for you :) Does the card clear if it is mounted as normal? I am going for exactly the same card and case and I just wanted to know.

  • 13 months ago
  • 1 point

no it will not clear sadly. it sticks out about an inch.

Damnnn that's unfortunate :< I just love this case and card combo so much. Which vertical bracket did you use?

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

Currently it’s the lian li 011 dynamic verticals bracket

Does the vertical bracket and riser card come with the case?

  • 11 months ago

no i had to buy that separately.

Yes

This is the first build of me seeing the Aorus Extreme and O11 Dynamic in a build. I'm assuming you kept most of the components stock?

  • 12 months ago
  • 1 point

Yes didn’t need to mod anything though I do have a spare 011 Dynamic I plan to mod to make it left sided.

I am looking to do a build in this case. Any complaints with it? I am not going to be doing a water build. I have heard that this case doesn't get good air flow do you think it still be ok for me? nice build though. +1

  • 12 months ago

From my experience on this case I have done only air cooled , AIO cooled and Water cooler, as for airflow I feel it get amazing air flow as long as you are no going full negative or positive. At max you can put 9 fans in the case, this is not including fans that would attach to an air cooled cpu coolers, but only problem i have with this case is the it is a bit narrow so a lot of the bulky GPUs or CPU cooler will not fit. I was unable to fit 1080 ti FTW3, 2080 ti FTW3, and the 2080ti Xtreme edition GPUs. All this GPUs need about only 1 inch to 1 1/2 more clearance and it would be perfect.

Any special paint you had to use? Thinking about doing the same thing. Love the build!

  • 4 months ago

Just make sure it’s paint and premier and do 3-5 coats.

Does the reservoir block the use of the side fans? or restrict you from placing side fan and radiator?

  • 4 months ago
  • 1 point

It does not allow the use of the side fans.

Looks beautiful.

I'm curious of your thoughts on fitting that e-atx board in this case with that water distribution block. I'm about to run something similar and I'm sort of dreading how tight I think it might be.

  • 4 months ago
  • 1 point

So the extreme z390 I put on here with that water block was a tight fit and because it extended so much further I couldn’t fit two fittings and had to avoid one loop which was important. As long as the loop isn’t near the board it should be ok but will be tight. The XL version of the case should have this issue.

Awesome build man. So for the airflow, does is go from top to bottom on the bottom radiator and bottom to top on the top radiator? Is this how it supposed to be? I am just curious.

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks, I have it so air is going in from the bottom and out from the top. due to the res blocking the side panel I couldn't add fans there to push out from there as well.
