So is there a list of recommended 240mm AIOs for this? Also I'm assuming that flipping it so the rad is pointing up isn't an issue?

I hope more coolers get tested, since it would benefit a lot of people to have a more widely available and somewhat cheaper coolers like the H100i.
Also since some of us have/want the asrock X570 AC/TB3 board which supports a handful amount of AIO coolers...

I'll betcha the community comes in with the extra support on cooler selection. There's a lot of tinkerers in here.

The LT240 is thinner than most AIOs out there, while performing just as well if not better. Wahaha has been adamant that the tradeoff of increasing case volume for compatibility is not worth it for his project, so don't expect an expanded compatibility list. If you want to fit more common, thicker AIOs then this case is not for you I guess.

You might want to look at the Jonsbo A4 and some Taobao cases like Seven-A4 and SKTC S02 instead. All of them are larger than the T1 but should fit more common AIOs.

Those cases look nice, but unfortunately they only have room for a 2-slot GPU. (my EVGA 2070 super is a chunky 3-slot)

Anyway - personally I wouldn't mind ordering the LT240 if I have no other choice for this case, just thought it would be more convenient that's all.
Would be cool if I could order that case with it preinstalled, actually!

If you want a cheap custom loop, I guess this one will fit.

I will be weary of Aliexpress / TaoBao radiators that have not been tested . I have bought a few and tested to my disappointment.

If I had to guess, the Alphacool can perform better because of 1) welding consistency, 2) it hold more water in the radiator itself, 3) maybe the quality of the copper is slightly better.

Well they dont really support 3 slot GPU brackets but they do support GPU thickness very close to 3-slots (for example 58mm in the Seven-A4). A lot of cards are 3 slots thick but don't require 3 bracket slots. The EVGA Ultras are some of the exceptions I guess.

I agree, it was tested here


Seems to work, brand is Freezemod seems to be a reasonable brand.

I meant again as a reminder, it was mentioned somewhere when he was planning to ship/sell.
As everything was in production now. (If I'm not mistaken)

There is no hard set date at the moment. Go here and you can set up an alert notification for the sale to go live.

So looking forward to it!
