Finally got my shipment confirmation! DHL Express immediately collected customs / VAT and processing fee.

Anyone with a similar build to mine with a J-HACK M2426 and/or pslatecustoms cables? Need to know the cable lengths (for normal PSU orientation probably).

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5600X
CPU-Kühler: Corsair Hydro Series H100i RGB Platinum (w/ 2x Noctua NF-A12x15 PWM chromax)
GPU: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B550-I Gaming
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 2x16GB, DDR4-3200, CL16-18-18-36
SSD: Western Digital WD_BLACK SN750 NVMe SSD 1TB, M.2
PSU: Corsair SF Series SF750 80 PLUS Platinum 750W

Cable length of what? Pslate offers cables specific to the T1, so no need to worry about the lengths. For the ATX to M2426 cable you’ll need 22 cm.

Was waiting for sunlight to take pics.
Here they are:

looks good - Im running a tx240 and tx120 with a 5900x and 3900 and get similar temps.
ambient 23
coolant under load is 40 - sometimes 41-42
5900x is around mid 70s
3900 is around 55-59

so not bad for a 360 surface area.

My order was part of the Dec 1-4 E-White Batch. I got shipping originally but without a tracking number so my order status changed back to received. I emailed to switch to the new Titanium color and got refunded the difference in USD. Yesterday night I received an email with a shipping update and a tracking number that has movement already. Wasn't expecting Titanium to go out this quick.
Quick update on my post. DHL delivered my T1 (Titanium) today. I got the shipment email with the tracking number on Monday. Took 3 days for delivery to the USA. I'll take picture of it when I have it fully built. The QC check looks good. Still waiting on some other parts to come to start the build.

Today I received the shipment (Austria)! Like wtf, that was the fastest delivery time from confirmation to actual delivery ever. :eek:

Updated my build slightly, cleaning up some cables & adding QDCs for filling & bleeding with external reservoir in favor of the tiny reservoir:


I've also removed the DDC heatsink on the Aquanaut to get rid of the panel bulge - but looks like this noticably affected the CPU temps though, so I'll likely add it again after sanding it down (more info & tests in build log).

Somehow threads that I start on the Reddit don’t seem to show up for others, so I’d like to ask the same here:

I done building my titanium T1, but I’m struggling securing the EK 240 AIO. I’m using the small bracket and understand I can then only secure the AIO on one side using 4 screws (the ones that come with the AIO)? I guess I could also use a tall bracket on the side where the AIO fill port is not located for more stability?

Also, how far forward am I supposed to push the rad? If I slide it all the way to the front I cannot push it down enough so that I can screw it into the bracket.

Thanks!

well you should install it with a slim fan and then have appropriate length screws. There's not much to it really. What is the prob exactly? Because it sounds like you want to screw the rad onto the brackets while the rad itself is to wide.
A pic would really help.

I have two Noctua slim fans screwed to the rad, but I assume I will also need to attach the rad to the small brackets. Without doing that and having the not so flexible EK AIO cables to work with, the rad is not fixed securely / nicely.

Does anyone know why january batch cases are being shipped before december 28-31st (and presumably earlier) batches? For reference, mine is black dec 28-31st and is unfulfilled on the formd website, while people with black cases for jan shipping are posting their fulfilled orders and shipping notifications on the subreddit? Just kinda confused

I've seen people from both the Dec 1-4 and Dec 28-31 batches getting their cases. Not sure what the prioritization is, but it seems like everyone that has ordered one is going to get one sooner or later. To me, it seems like everyone from these three batches (Dec 1-4, Dec 28-31, Jan) were all lumped into a single big batch

So I’m a little undecided on radiators to use.

what offers better performance?

HJ 17mm with 2 25mm fans in pull
Or
Tx240 with 2 15mm in pull

I have neither rad, and maybe you can find actual numbers by looking around people's builds, but my take would be:
  • The HJ with 2x 25 will be more silent but have a lower ceiling for cooling potential, since increasing fanspeed will have diminishing returns due to it being thinner and having lower FPI (?)
  • The TX240 has higher ceiling/can likely cool higher loads, but the thin fans will be louder overall
If I were to buy something now, it would likely be the TX240, also given the QC reports on the HJs (seems like they often leak out of the box).

Blackened my build (swapped tubes, PSU fan, and Hanjiang side radiator to black version).

In case you haven't seen them there are results here and here. I think Hanjiang will do better when noise normalized, simply because Noctua A12x25 runs several hundred more RPMs than A12x15 at the same noise level. I really hate Hanjiang for their QC though.

You should always run a third push fan under the radiator, because that helps significantly. Having a third fan under Hanjiang will introduce top panel bulge if you are running A12x25 on top, unless you position the inlet/outlet at the rear end of the case.
