Hi guys, newbie in here and sorry for my English which is not my native language.

Recently i've purchased A4-H2O and i'm going to migrate from NR200P when it arrives. I had planned to buy EK AIO 240 (Basic or D-RGB) because tubing over VRM and PSU looks very clean. But on the flipside, one of the tubes seems very stiff over PSU cord. I thought i would figure this out somehow.

Yesterday i noticed Phanteks Glacier One 240MP. It has brand new pump, silent like EK AIO at %80 pump speed, but it has longer tubes (400mm). And i discovered AIO tubes may go under PSU, i did not know it's possible. Some people say this is the most efficient orientation for AIO tubing for this case.

I have ROG B550-I motherboard, so unlike AORUS boards, there's no obstacle mounting the pump facing I/O side of the board.

EK AIO's are not sale on my country but i've found $87 for used (mint) D-RGB one, Basic model is not even exist. Phanteks is available to buy and pricing around $115 for brand new. Price is not an issue, i'm more into EK AIO than every other AIO's but also willing to build and use the case pain-free.

Will be appreciated for your recommendations.

Can't find any information on the cpu block height of the Corsair H100 LCD - does anyone know if it will fit into the H2O?

Anybody using an Asus B550-I? I want to mount a gen 3 m.2 on the backside but am debating whether to squee a heatsink on it. It’s naked now & not touching the case divider but I think adding a heatsink would be a very tight fit.
I have just done an A4-H20 build and it a heatsink will not fit.

I'm looking for some cable length so I can order a custom length PCIE and 24-pin.

Just a quick question about GPU depth - specs say triple slot, but that can still mean a lot of variation. So, whats the max width / depth within the GPU side?

For comparison: Meshlicious all mesh panels has a total depth of 65 mm available (inside; opening is 63ish).

Thanks in advance,
cu, w0lf.

Edit: hopefully nevermind. Just needed to reseat my CPU.

Hi, what should I do if I am having riser issues. Using a gigabyte x570si v1.1 and a EVGA 3060ti. I had the computer up and running in a different case, switched to the a4h20 and no video.

Are you using a 3.0 riser? If so you'll need to switch the PCIe slot to run at gen3 speeds, it's a BIOS setting.

Hello, can anyone confirm that nzxt kraken x53 + aorus b550i pro ax combo will fit in this case?

The cpu block height is right on the Case's max allowable height, and that particular mobo is known to sit a bit higher, so I'm afraid the side panel won't close...

Hey guys!
Nvidia 4080 (16 GB) is stated with 3 Slot (61mm).
The H2O case states 3 slot 60mm max - so, do we need to file the metal down or will it be a tight but working fit…?

Thanks!

well like RTX3090 FE, I would not recommend at all to use any 3 slots passthrough GPU inside Dan A4 H2O. (2 slots maximum)

Would the ID-Cooling IS-55 fit? The case clearance is 55mm and the cooler height is 55mm, so I am curious if would could be squeezed in.

I just purchased this case from Newegg as they had a deal today where the PCIE 4.0 version was $130.
I wanted this case because I liked the A4 form factor, but I wanted top exhaust. After having a AIO destroy a whole build, I have an aversion to water cooling, so I would appreciate any air cooler recommendations. The IS-55 looks good but I am worried about clearances. Also considering AXP90-X53 and Black Ridge. Going to be cooling a 5700x. Suggestions would be appreciated.

IS-55 could fit, in theory, however no evidence so far (IS-55 is not fitting Sliger SM with same CPU cooler clearance of 55mm). We are within error margin.
However, even if IS-55 fits, it would be like AXP-X53, it will create noise turbulence.

Another solution could be Noctua NH-L9a + 25mm fan + Fan duct NA-FD1.
In any case, you would need to undervolt your cpu (PBO with negative offset) .

Good morning everyone!
I am building my PC, I tried EK 240 but the tubes are so rigid that I hated... do you have anything else to offer me?
I thought of a Fractal Design S24 or a Phanteks Glacial, something that is simple to install, I have a B550i asus, thank you very much

A couple of people have tried in this thread with success. They claim less turbulence than an AXP90-x53 with a 90mm fan. Just be careful of your motherboard/ram selection. These will matter.
