I made the same observation. But I don't know exactly where the power inlet is. Perhaps @WinterCharm could provide that info in CAD?One thing to watch out for is the power inlet. Appears to be just below the GPU, and could conflict with the G1/4 extension?
And yes, I'm going with the smaller EKWB ZMT 15.9/9.5. But with your loop suggestion I'm going to have to cross somewhere. For there needs to be 32mm from GPU block to the side panel and I don't know that yet either.
That somewhat of a compromise that I'm not so sure about. Most of the GPU blocks I checked have the inlet towards the rear of the case. That means backwards in my projected loop. But EKWB, for the RTX 3080 RE at least, doesn't seem to prescribe a definitive way, but there is surely a preferred one. And in that case it is most surely backwards. If I can cross the tubes as @August suggested, I could switch the flow for the gpu.My quick observations, it appears that your flow through the GPU block is backwards. I'm also curios to see if you're able to account for the PSU plug at the rear of the case - it looks like your current fittings will collide with it.
Anyway, it is in flux. That was to have that kind of feedback that I posted. So thanks!
My thought process to this point in time:
- As @Post-Newt also found out, I'm not positive that there's clearance for the top rad outlet on top of the PSU. And perhaps that's me, but I'm not super keen to have a water fitting just over the PSU grill.
- For bleeding the loop, it seems to me that having both rads outlets on the same side would be preferable. So both rads oulets to the rear. Tilt the case on the front face for filling\bleeding.
- There's need for some leeway to open either the top or bottom sufficiently to remove the side panel for access.
Work in progress...
