Production FormD T1 Classic (READ FIRST POST)

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: 65 19.8%
  • No, not worth it b/c it is not better than the ROG 30XX, which fits now at <10L

How long is typical for a shipped case to sit in the 'The airline receives it'/航空公司接收 stage? Been there for the last 5 days and I'm getting real antsy ?

That might depend on your country and delivery service. But it could be worse as COVID is on the rise.

Working on it, I have 5950X and ROG Strix 3090 for my setup.

The ROG 3090 is also between 2.5 to 2.75 GPU slots, which will give me some time to test offering 2.5 and 2.75 GPU Slot as an upgrade kit *without breaking compatibility.

I might have to make a custom radiator that also functions as the Top Panel for the T1 to support the heat output. As OptimumTech video shows, regular 240 AIO just won't do it.
Assumed a 240 AIO cooled 5950X with an air-cooled GPU (RTX 3090/6900 XT) would be possible and within reasonable temps, is that not the case?

I feel like I'm at a custom water cooling anonymous meeting.... With Fabio and threestripeviada...

Hi, I'm DrHudacris and I've been addicted to custom water cooling, but now I will be going with a 120AIO and 3 slot air cooled GPU.
Wait, what?!

What the heck is going on here?! Hahahaha

Longtime lurker preparing components for my first custom loop T1. I know @fabio did a 2x240mm rad build with a Magicool G2 and a TX240 but I was curious if a 2x TX240 build was viable. Since the TX240 performs so well I was thinking to pair two of them together instead of an EKWB Classic or the Magicool G2.

Now I really want to do it. I just hope I can remember how to put the cooler back into my card.

i get it! I keep buying more WC stuff and keep changing setups in my T1.

thanks for the info! HK to DE in 4 days is crazy. DHL is FAST. ?Here’s to hoping China Post pass it off to Canada Post sooner rather than later ?

This is how my T1 going to be for the next 7-10 days ? Only CPU in the loop for now, Big Navi Liquid Devil can't come soon enough.



If everything goes well, will do various testing for the fans on top of the radiator (Scythe Slipstream 2000RPM, A12x15 and A12x25). Ultimately will be the Scythe fan on top, already dry fit it and top panel closes easily without any bulge.

The 5700XT Liquid Devil is 162mm tall, is the Big Navi going to fit?

Hi all, I'm planning my routing for my custom loop. I saw this image somewhere (pretty sure it's an earlier build from @fabio ?).
I was wondering if anybody has done that route from CPU to GPU with 10/16mm tubes, specifically also in 3-slot mode:

I’ve done it in 2slot GPU with offset PSU, I assume it would be possible in 3Slot GPU. I have the PSU as close to front panel as possible. I believe it squeezes very slightly. 10/16 ZMT tubing.

no info yet so no idea, but will make it work anyway LOL (if it continues to be EK-collab then terminal rotary to the rescue!)

I might have to make a custom radiator that also functions as the Top Panel for the T1 to support the heat output. As OptimumTech video shows, regular 240 AIO just won't do it.
And I'm still waiting for Freeflow & Distro plate ?

Hey! I’ve tried with 2 TX240 in that configuration, and for me was impossible, I’ve explained also on Reddit why.
BUT, maybe, rotating 180degrees the side radiator as I had it in the 240+120 side rad, can work!
But was such a complex and weird connection that I am not confident to suggest ?

TX240's are tough to come by at the moment so I might just go Magicool at the moment. You posted on reddit that the G2 seems to be the OEM version of the EKWB and the performs should be equal? For the top rad given that fitting another TX240 might be tough it looks like the Magicool/EKWB are the best bet here. Or are there other radiators I should consider?

Side Rad of a HJ17 is the way to go.

I get 5mm clearance with noctua 15mm’s.

It’s not about the radiator. It’s the ports position that create some clearance issue! Any rad between 20 and 27 is fine. EKWB Classic or Alphacool ST25 or Magicool doesn’t matter. The TX perform a bit better, but we can say just 2/3 C.
