2 x 120 mm AIOs in an A4 is it possible?

Hello!

I'm currently working on cramming 2x120 AIOs in my A4 v3.
I was curious if anyone has tried something like that before?

The setup will be (for now):
Strix z290i
6700k w. Corsair H55 w. NF-F12 PWM Chromax
16 GB TridentZ RGB 3200
Gigabyte 1080 mini ITX w. 120 mm AIO from an EVGA 1070 Hybrid w. NF-F12 PWM Chromax
Corsair SF600, but if this works well, I'll go for a G-unique unit.

My plan is to install them in front of eachother with flow from CPU side to GPU side in a fan-rad-fan-rad config.

Any thoughts?

Best Regards,
Anders

Well, I already has it installed loosely. Still a lot of different ways to do this.
I have ordered the second AIO bracket and are currently waiting patiently for it to arrive.
It seems to work pretty well. I have decent temps without sidepanels tho.
Here's some pictures of the current state.

Well, now it is build :)
I have dropped the idea of the G-unique brick for now, and just routed the cables out the back of the case and running the SF600 as external.
My temps are good, but I also use undervolting on both GPU and CPU.
GPU running 2000 MHz @ 0.950 V
And the 6700K is offset with -200 mV @ 4,2 GHz on all cores.
After a gaming session in BFV for half an hour the temps saturates at ~60°C on both CPU and GPU.
I am very happy :)

@NotAnAnimal great build man! This was my dream a couple of years back, stacking dual 120AIO in this case but now I just settle for aircooling :)

@element72 there's literally no space left for a standard SFX. With a HDPlex combo he might have been able to keep the DC-ATX inside, situated just above the GPU but then there's still the AC-DC piece which has to be external

maybe flex atx can work at the top, or fan at the top instead, somehow (i dn't know).

u did it? mission accomplished? the psu is on the outside though :eek:
Yes! Mission accomplished. The compromise ended up being with the SF600 external.

Thanks man! :)
Cool! How is that working out on that 3900X? I might opt for a Ryzen build in the A4 later this year, but I'm not sure how to cool it. My 6700k has been a complete bitch to cool with air :(

Idk how I managed to fit my reply into your quote :)

Just need to edit your message out of the QUOTE block hahaha. I'm running the 3900X in Eco mode so it cools just fine, 50-54C at idle (my ambient is 31-33C). I don't do anything CPU intensive - only gaming, web browsing and Android emulator, so it's all good. Moving soon to a Ghost-clone though for more airflow :)
