The clearance from motherboard pcb to the inside of the bracket is 115.5mm. so assuming a 30mm thick radiator and standard 25mm fans that leaves 60mm let's just say the socket eats up 5 ish... Aios smaller than 55mm should fit underneath or blocks with 90 angled adapters.The dual 240 rad support.... that's a wild idea! On the horizontal rad, will there be room for 2 standard fans underneath it?
For the overlap, I can envision a single fan pulling air through one and pushing it through the other.

Now stuffing the tubes in there!... That is an exercise left to the end user
For where the two radiators overlap you can mount two 120mm fans, one on each rad, and still have about a 15mm air gap in between. Hopefully that will reduce some turbulence.
That is an awesome block. Definitely worth trying. Although I think 55mm of space is enough for almost any block with angled fittings on top of it?
gpu length and widths are tricky.gpu length and width, case width and length, cpu cooler height. Also with the top of case be removable? (for reservoir orientation and stuff)
Could you clarify what you mean by "opposite to the motherboard"? Like above it? facing the vented side panel?I prefer to mount 1 or 2 90mm fans opposite to the motherboard, rather than 2 mini fans on the back. Mini fans usually are louder and less efficient than larger fans.
Out of curiosity, what would be the ballpark price given their low volume estimate?Small update for everyone. I got a quote from my manufacturer for the sheet metal work on the new units. It's... more than I had hoped. But I suppose reasonable given there is a lot more panels and bends and work involved in general.
I asked them how it scales with volume to see if it's something I could deliver at a reasonable price as an end product but it's somewhat of an issue. I think it may turn out to be either too expensive for small volumes or I would require volumes so large I doubt I could turn them around.
I don't feel comfortable putting down a number until it's actually settled. I am working with them to see if there is anything that can be optimized for cost. The end result must be competitive with the current market offerings.Out of curiosity, what would be the ballpark price given their low volume estimate?
