How long is your video card? Mine's about the maximum. Yeah I guess folks with 2080 ti won't have as much trouble.I managed to do it earlier this week with the stock SF600 Platinum cables. Not saying it was easy. Took longer than I expected. But I don't have any of the issues you are claiming. Looking forward to the arrival of my shorter unsleeved cables though.
I have a EVGA 2070 Super Black. According to their specs it is 269.83 mm (10.62 in). My biggest issue was figuring out what to do with the 24 pin cable. I tried to route it behind the mobo and through the cutout between the radiator and mobo but had a lot of issues getting my GPU actually in the slot. It seems possible for me only if you separate every cable on the 24 pin so they're in a straight line with each other and perfectly flat. Making that happen wasn't working out.How long is your video card? Mine's about the maximum. Yeah I guess folks with 2080 ti won't have as much trouble.
Really depends on your needs. My temps with the AIO are 25-30C lower under load than with the L9A. GPU might be a few C higher due to have the bottom fans set as intake with the AIO, but it seems very worth it for my needs.Upon everything I've seen and read about the 92mm I think I'll just bite the bullet and stick with air cooling for now.
This just does not look ideal: https://gyazo.com/a3a7aa60b20e84f4427c252b1b79e32d
