    Hey mate, my pics might help you but the best way is, like you said, to just play around once the case arrives! Order extra fittings just in case! The G1/4 to m19 supplied fitting sits flush on one side, sticks out about 3mm on the other. I actually attached a collar from a barrow fill port to...

    Hey all, just posting a pic of my nearly finished build (let’s be honest it’ll never be completely finished). I believe there was conversation around the Alphacool DC-LT Plexi Top being able to fit in the Formd T1. I am yet to see a photo of it so hopefully this may help someone who might...

    The mythical 25mm x 2 on top? What are the chances on squeezing a thin noctua underneath? ;) This is just so good, power to the 40mm noctua fans!

    I have these at home (https://koolance.com/fitting-single-black-swiveling-elbow-low-profile) and they didn’t work in my case (Bykski 5700xt Mech OC variant) in the T1 as the attached fittings were too close to the main plexi part of the GPU (clearance to the side panel was fine). I am able to...

    Hey all, in the process of building in my T1 and I took some photos of a custom set of cables I transferred from a previous NCase build. Sorry to double post but thought it might be handy information for anyone making their own cables or ordering from somewhere which doesn’t have cable length...

    I received advice from alphacool head of marketing (or at least a guy who claimed to be on reddit) last week that running a d5 pump external and dc-lt 2600 internal would not cause damage to dc-lt 2600. I received my case this weekend and have an lt solo pump as well as a dc-lt2600 in the mail...

    Thank you both for the input, I might just go ahead and sell the lt240 and test out what I prefer between hwlabs + 2slim noctua and tx240 + 2/3 slim noctua. I will wait until my dc-lt 2600 coming from Taobao is confirmed. Also might test with external 280 radiator + 240 to check performance...

    Hey Fabio, I’m sure you have mentioned this somewhere in the 400+ pages (I have been following for last 150 in detail). I am in the fortunate position of having the xspc tx240, hwlabs gts240 and the alphacool lt240 rad as well as various noctua slim and A12x25s. I have the first two rads from an...

    hey cobba, got my status update yesterday, It’s currently sitting in Guangzhou international parcel depot ready to fly to Aus. Super, super excited and hoping my wacky half hard tube, half soft tube plan will work. I have the two tone coming and plan to use a mix of black and silver fittings...

    Looks like the T1 might be for sale on TaoBao, might be version 1 instead of 1.1, it doesn’t specify and I can’t speak Chinese. Please excuse me if this is wrong or has been posted before, been following for the last 100 pages, And have skimmed through the previous 300 pages. Check the third...

    I believe I read that it’s only the copper fins that are underneath the tx240 screws, not the tubes which contain the water so chance of leakage is pretty low. I can also corroborate this with my dodgy installation of my tx240 in the NCase m1, I used the supplied screws of which I hack sawed 4...

    😍😍😍 Thanks for the update, really reassuring. You should post something on reddit once you do a leak test because I could find 0 information about Bykski blocks and Barrow terminal rotary on the internet before you posted!! On another note has anyone ever tried to fit the Phanteks r160 Res/Pump...

    You are absolutely right that the link opens to the Solo mini pump top but one of the ‘configuration’ options is the “something written in chinese characters 60DCLT + water pump? 2600”. Which looks exactly like the DC-LT 40 reservoir and the 60 implies the length. I’m not 100% as I can’t speak...

    Sorry I was really unclear, I couldn’t and still can’t find the dc-lt 40mm reservoir/pump top. The pump I can find but multiple shops who sell it don’t seem to stock the dc-lt40. This guy...
