Increase volume from 9.8L to 10.5L to support MSI Suprim X 30XX?

  • Yes, worth the trade off to be more compatible with components

    Votes: 107 24.3%
  • No, not worth it b/c it is not better than the ROG 30XX, which fits now at <10L

there are lots of other 240mm AIOs that would be an easier fit than the EK one, I'd recommend going with less than 28mm radiator thickness.


I've made this a while back, it might help you choose an AIO for your T1.

There are different AIOs you could put in there (if you use a 15mm and a 25mm fan, of course). My RYUO 240 fits fine in 3 slot mode.



Hi guys, I'm in the middle of what I hope will be a T1 build (if I'm able to get one) but unfortunately will have to go to through the 3-slot route. I'm currently evaluating my cooling options lurking this thread, can anyone tell me if this spreadsheet is legit?

Massive thanks to every reviewer btw, I'm a long time lurker.

Yes, it is legit.

you still need to keep in mind, that you'll have to route the tubing, but the sizes I've put into that sheet correspond to the manufacturer information of the AIOs.

So Alphacool tells me end of year for the new LT240. So perhaps not worth waiting for?

Good timing dude! I was just about to share what I heard back from Reddit DMs with an Alphacool marketing fella:

>from Eddy-Alphacool sent 9 hours ago

> Hi,
> because of Corona and a few other things, the release of the Eisbaer LT Aurora was moved to end of this year. We have first to care about a few other things here. Plan in the moment is september or october.

Sounds like consistent and recent guidance IMO. I kinda agree with you about not waiting for it if you're in the next couple of T1 drops!

(Also @Chaca, @JRey @Clarenz since I've seen y'all following this sub-topic the past couple of days)

If you want something special, you can always take it to a painter in your area
I agree with this sentiment; if you want some thing special, you have to do it yourself. Wahaha, or any project organizer, dont have time to cater to a niche request.
speaking of color options, color sample came into day. I'm planning to have the outer case all white but leaving the mesh side panel stock black. The Bright White (oven cure) is the one I'm gravitating towards, it matches IKEA's Alex drawers nicely.

Heck yeah man. IIRC I also went Bright White on my Ghost S1. I almost wish I had gone with whatever the shade is that has a little bit more gloss.

Just be careful that, according to my cursory research, whites seem to be particularly heat-sensitive during the curing process. I notice now that my case has yellowed a couple of shades-- dunno if that's due to PC heat or curing time and/or temp that I missed when I picked it up way back when.

That said, Cerakote is the business man! The feel is unmatched, and the tolerances seem essentially unaffected by the coating.

thanks for the heads up, I'll look more into it.
i agree, Cerakote is amazing.

Stormtrooper white was my initial choice but after seeing these in person, I am liking the Bright white more.
But i'll wait for when the case comes in to make my final decision.

I dunno but I'm a pretty patient guy. I could wait for Aus to get them. Hell I'm probably not gonna start putting everything together till like November or December

Is there a temporary cooler you have on hand already that you can chuck on for now then rip it off once the Aurora LT gets released in Aus?

My build is in a sg13 right now with a Fractal Kelvin t12. Which is the lt120. So I have a cooler.

I'm using the stock tubes though. So I am worried about plastizer clogging my block. So i don't want to run the pvc tubes longer than I need to.

I think if it's not going to be until November or something I will just buy EKWB fittings, tubing and a rad.

Another issue. My corsair SF750 is within the batch margin for recall... So I will be without a PSU until I get that sorted.

oof unlucky on the SF750. I just ordered mine so hopefully I've avoided that

and yeah if the LT120 is at risk of clogging then in your situation I'd just buy the EKWB stuff

Hello, I want to buy this product, but the website is not available for ordering. How can I buy this product? I come from Vietnam.

@Wahaha360 I think the poll at the top should be removed. Then how would one know the shop's URL without looking at the first post?

Ships from China. And please, before any more questions (colors, GPU clearance, cooler height etc etc etc) read the first post.

I contacted the store and they said because its a known issue that they will replace the psu on the spot. So basically just wait until my T1 arrives and exchange it over. Basically no impact.

For anyone wanting to use Alphacool TPV tubing but want more options for the uncommon size of that tube (8/13), bitspower has a selection of 8mm soft tube fittings here. Mostly barb type, so you'll need clamps or zip ties. Unsure if the 8/11 compression type fittings can be made to work.
