Nice build ?
I smiled about the cable part ?
Do you plan to undervolt the gpu? I am very eager to see your temps of the 2080ti under (gaming) load.
Thank you, I've done a quick test and the CPU max temp were 75°C (4.8ghz OC) and GPU 79°C
Beautiful photos! I still can’t get enough of seeing this case filmed/photographed nicely even though I have one lol.
Thank you! This is my first time photographing product other than food ?
Your setup and mine should be fairly similar. I have the same motherboard, CPU and power supply. My 2080Ti is an EVGA Black, my memory sticks are GSkills, and I just received a LT 240 solo. Really want to know your temps!!!!!

I always suggest the non conductive clear premix. Until now the best I've tried is the EK CryoFuel.

Between the one I've tried has kept is "clear" color longer than the Alphacool one for example.

For the temps, every brand with a good premix coolant is ok. Some manufacturers like Alphacool though suggest to not use the Mayhems product.

Kind of a noob question but I've bought the LT240 and i'm going to buy the Tygon R6010 hose with EK cryofuel clear.
Problem is that i don't know the quantities. 1 meter hose enough or better to order 2 meters?
How many liters of the coolant?

2 Meters to be safe (tubing are pretty cheap, and especially at the beginning is nice to have a safe margin)

1L of coolant is enough, in a full T1 loop without reservoir you can put till 350ml.

Buy 1L of distilled water to clean before properly the radiator.

Thanks! I will order that today

I see some of you are discussing tubing, just wanted to get my 2 cents out there.

Since fabio said that 16/10 ZMT is a bit too thick for this cramped space, I wanted the same maintenance advantages and that matte look so I found watercool.de sells EPDM tubing in 13/10.
Figured it'd be a slight improvement in flow over the 8mm ID of these other tubes.

I have to report that this tubing smells horrendous and it's a bit shinier than ZMT.
I washed the tubing with soap and water and let it vent outside for days and it didn't help at all.

I'm not sure if larger inner diameter helps the temps at all, but if I had to do it all over again, I'd go with Alphacool's TPV or EK's ZMT.

Fine for me, sometimes I’ve missed a bit of more length on the PSU cable.
There is also the chance to have a shorter tail for the c14 plug?

No problem with cable length in my current configuration, but 30mm longer shouldn’t be an issue either.

I’ve never found myself needing more length for that cable in my build iterations, but I don’t see how this change could hurt anything either.

I'm look into it, but unlikely, it's already lowest to the limit by current OEM.

Existing is fine. Longer shouldn't be an issue either.

I didn't feel the need for a longer cable so far, I even felt mine could have been a bit shorter, but I think a 3cm longer one could still get hidden for a clean look, so that should work, too.

Sorry to hear about the smelly tubing :/ Also, tubing ID does not affect flow because your fittings (or the inlets/outlets they’re fit to) constrict the flow regardless.

Sorry if I am being redundant, I did a search about this but couldnt find an answer. Is the Alphacool LT240 still supported in full? I thought I remember hearing it was no longer supported, however a few days ago people were saying they were purchasing the AIO for their T1s. Are most people using just the rad to build a custom loop around it?

I already own a LT240, am I in the clear or should I get an EK AIO if I dont want to mess around with a custom loop? Had bad prior experiences with a loop I made frying a GPU, so im not too interested with ripping mine apart, however am an experienced builder.

Not sure if it's officially supported but it does fit with at least one slim fan (and one normal fan). It's recommended to change the tubing because there was a problem with plasticers of the original pvc tubes resulting in clogged pumps.
Since it's a used pump i'd advice you to take it apart for inspection.
