Guys, I would like to build a with a Asus ROG Strix Z690-I in this case but as you know the motherboard & the case has some restrictions and limitations. I would like to compile a list of my options for an AIO cooler and currently, I only know for sure that Corsair iCUE H100i RGB PRO XT is compatible based on research. If anyone knows other compatible AIO's with the motherboard & case do let me know please.

This is my PCPartpicker link, I'd also appreciate any feedback: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/mbhb8r

Yeah following my previous post my order still didn’t ship. I asked again and got end of this week for arrival so expecting it to ship over the weekend or early next week!
I've just had a look this morning and all cases are showing as "in stock" so I'm hoping to have it for the weekend 😬🤞🏽

Just had my shipping notification right now! Looks like it's build time this weekend!
I checked last night and the site showed the case in stock but my order was still showing undefined, I was like WTF. Got the email this morning that it had finally shipped.

I received mine today so yours should hopefully be on its way if not delivered today 🤞🏽 fingers crossed for you.

I have opened mine up and initial impressions I am so damn excited to build tomorrow 😬

Spent 3 hours putting together my H2O build last night and as I was getting ready to put the PSU and GPU in and start connecting everything I felt/saw that the AIO was leaking some weird fluid from the socket. I've only ever used air coolers so I asked a friend if it was normal and he said it was a pretty big red flag. I ended up having to take the whole thing apart and then spend 4 hours trying to cram everything back into my NR200. It feels like some horrible luck because from what I've read AIO's rarely have failure issues and I'm such a novice that it is the last thing I needed to encounter.

What AIO did you used? Where does the fluid comes out?
I got the EK 240 AIO Basic. The fluid was coming out of the plastic/metal part that was attached to the socket and where the hoses came out from. The hoses were also covered in it as well, my hands had quite a bit of fluid on them by the time I got the unit out of the case. I don't know enough about AIO coolers but it couldn't have been water since the unit hadn't been turned on and also my hands had a sticky feeling to them as well. Not quite image quality but here's a picture with some left over fluid as I was cleaning it up.

I'm going to order a replacement cooler and give it another go after some rest. :D case was really easy to build in for as far as I got.

I finally decided to purchase the case in its black flavor and it should arrive around the 15th of April :)
I'm still skeptical about the space available on my mainboard to handle the adapter from IDC 19pin to the Type E and so I was thinking to give a shot purchasing also the Sliger FPIO with a single IDC 19 pin cable but I have no idea if those PCB has somehow a standard size (even if they looks pretty similar).

Finally got my case after waiting FOREVER for Overclockers UK to ship it. Very nice case, reminds me a lot of my Ncase M1. Great quality and very easy to build in. This was my planned case for upgrading from my Ghost S1 since I felt for sure I was going to need the 3 slot GPU support. Long story short I ended up getting a 3070 Ti FE and was able to keep my Ghost. Decided to use this case to re use my old parts and build a complete system.

i7 8700k
Gigabyte z370n WiFi
2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 MHz
Zotac RTX 2080 Super Twin Fan
Fractal Design Lumen S24 RGB
Corsair SF600 Gold with sleeved cables from the Platinum in my Ghost
Team Force 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD

This thing runs incredibly cool, my 8700k is delidded and I wasn't able to break 60C running Prime95 with only 1300rpm fan speed. The GPU maxed out at 72C, I had to undervolt it in my Ghost to keep it from throttling. Goes to show how good ventilation is in this case. The Lumen works well in the case and with 300mm tubing I was able to route them below the PSU. The AIO is RGB but this motherboard doesn't have an aRGB header so I ordered a controller for it that hasn't arrived yet, I don't like RGB but the future owner might.

when do you think we'll be able to buy the PCIE gen 4 risers separate from the case? I got a gen 3 case since that's what I need but I would like to get a Gen 4 riser for future cpu/mobo upgrades

You might be able to use a Louqe gen 4 riser. They sell them directly on their website.

I’ve been trying to rule out AIOs / MoBos myself for same case but haven’t bought either yet. Here are the ones that I’ve seen on YouTube builds or reviews be a tough fit either because of inflexible hoses or height/side panel clearance:

Just buy them from LinkUP. This one is from the same OEM.

Disappointed to see that OCUK jacked the price up within days of stock finally arriving. The Gen 3 versions have gone from £99.95 to £119.99, and the Gen 4 versions from £134.99 to £149.99.
