No... i actually meant zip ties.
They work pretty well to install fans in positions like that.

@Wahaha360 I have the same problem with the 3 slots GPU. For 1/2 mm, even pressing hard and forcing, I cannot mount it. I've secured the GPUs directly to the frame with the thumb screws.

Maybe can be fixed in the V1.2 of the case?
Update: everything should fit now
Added to GPU Tab and SFX changes to V1.1 update.




@Wahaha360 can you approve my id in QQ group? already request with QQ 956043140, thx in advance
Please check my DM for you, I'm from Indonesia.. so I dont have QQ account, also i'm asking my friend to buy this case.. :'(
Sorry, been busy, so told @3feetcat was handle it, but we are sold out.

In case anyone wants to know, the new EK-AIOs will fit, the question is will it perform better than the LT240.

How are the specs of this block/pump combo relative to the LT240? Rather, can it (on paper) support a GPU that's simply routed in as the LT240 can?

Full disclosure: this will by my maiden watercooled build.

Do you know if that AIO can be expanded using normal 1/4 fittings to add a GPU into the loop later on like the LT240 can?

Hello, i plan to eventually make a build in the FormD-T1 but i had a couple questions hoping you more seasoned enthusiast would have answers for.
-How picky is the sidearm with 120 aio's, what are known ones that work and known ones to keep away from
-Whats the deal with the magnets for the side panels? do we need to buy them separately with a hopefully attached site or whatever it may be or is it for convenience and not necessary
-With a motherboard like the Asus ROG Strix X570 -i with a beefy x570 chip set heat sink (i think?), could it fit the Eisber LT pump block? or would the fittings clash?
-is it possible to do PCI -e Bifurcation with a two slot graphics card so i could maybe even fit a capture card to?, also i saw a cable for almost 100$, is there something cheaper that still doesn't impact performance in any noticeable way?
P.S. i may have more questions later XD

Most 120mm AIO's like the Corsair H60 will fit under the right circumstances. I covered my experience when I "reviewed" the case. For most people, there should be little to no problems.
There are no magnets for the side panels, they slot into the top and bottom panels. I suggest watching OptimumTech's video on the case for more information
Yes it is possible to do Bifurcation if you have the right board (I don't think ASUS allows for it, but Aorus does), one of the owners of the case @fabio has done such a thing. Look here to see his build log.
Finally, please check the first page, first post, and it will most likely answer a lot of your questions.

EK-AIO has a better pump in theory, and better RGB.

However, it is not modular (taken apart) unlike Alpahcool LT240, and it uses an aluminum radiator.

So I suspect it should perform worse, but prob within 1-2C, so it's insignificant.
