Just clarifying, you are asking for the space between the case fan and the PCIe riser connector? Or the PCIe power (8pin?)
The PCIe Power 8Pin, I just noticed that those ASUS ROG rtx cards have a recessed 8 + 6 pin connector, I'm thinking my RX 5700 XT Red Devil will need some low profile PCIe connectors to pull it off.

Actually, I'm a dumb dumb. I've just now realized my connector will be fine as is, and can run a 240 with 12x15 noctuas. I've been looking at all the measurements backwards I'm building in the flipped orientation so I've been treating it as though the bottom is the top *Facepalm* well, that being said a 240LT 2x 12x15 and a red devil will have absolutely no issue if that's the case.

No you are right. I read it wrong it's only the multi-gpu blocks that are incompatible...my fault for reading it when I'm half asleep!
I have a the Mech OC 5700XT (good price on sale) and it was hard to source a water block. In the end I went with a BYKSKI from AliExpress and have been using it for 7 months no problems! I just ordered a BARROW 90 gpu terminal rotary and I’m hoping it will fit. I’ll post something when it arrives as I couldn’t find information on the internet. (If anyone know the answer to this please chime in).
This could be a cheaper route and the BYKSKI blocks seems comparable quality to my 1080 EK block I have.

Is it possible to get a list of fittings which are needed to get this done? It would be really helpful to have something like:
4x 90° degree fittings
2x 90° rotary fittings
8x normal compression fittings etc.

I know you water experts probably have hundreds of them lying around but for me as a water cooling noob and going SFF for the first time it is hard to plan everything in detail. It would be frustraiting if I miss one piece in my order or if I waste like 100 bucks just because I bought way too much :D
Did you check my buildlog? In the first page there is a list of parts!

And in the build log, for the other builds, I also specify the fittings needed!

Bykski and Barrow are not the same company, I'm not sure if the terminal will be compatible.

I have a Bykski block coming soon and have a Barrow terminal fitting in my desk right now. I'm ALSO hoping it fits lol.

So I bought an EVGA 2080 Super XC Ultra and slap an EK waterblock on it, and noticed that the GPU's output bracket is 3 slots. Do I need to get a 2 slots bracket to make the installation easier or I can still use the stock one ?

This looks like a good pump, probably will work well in a T1.
Price is also good. As HK is in China and is not just closer to, mailing cost is much lower and no need of an agent. That is a big advantage of being in China. Report some thermals when your T1 is set up.

"Graphic cards support: 312mm long, 2 or 3 Slot GPU (39.2 or 59.2mm from Side Panel to GPU PCB, including 1.6mm GPU PCB) "

So there shouldn't be any issues with 3 slots, although I can't tell how installation difficulty will compare to each other of course.

Also, I'm truly an idiot. I have never once said FormD as "formed". I always pronounce the D because it feels more unique and well ya know. Hopefully I'm not the only one but I'm guessing I am lol
You arent the only one that has been saying the name as "Form dee", but I have to say I like the sound of "formed" better
