    Sold my crazy big Corsair 1000D 4 radiator monster rig so I could move that PC into this Lian Li 011D (I've always admired them and really wanted one. Also wanted something smaller I can move around more easily).

    I took out my water cooled 2080TI to convert back to air though to use in my ITX rig which I do most of my gaming on now.

    This rig is the loungeroom rig that is used everyday at a guestimated 18 hours or so a day by everyone in my family. If anyone has a cheap waterblock to fit a Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme 1080ti please pm me, not real keen to watercool it as mainly my kids gaming on this now but hey if one came up cheap I probably would.

    Moving to a more simple loop with only 2 radiators (EKWB 360 PE and SE) was much more straight forward and no longer running push/pull meant heaps less wires to worry about. Lucky I've been water cooling for awhile now so had more than enough types of fittings to make the rads easy to connect up (odd space to connect the side rad, ports at the top are the only option but the SE rad fits perfectly in the back chamber/fans inside the case).

    I really think the Lian Li 011D is an amazing case to work in and love it as much as my NR200 air cooled pc. Best cases I have ever owned and can't see myself swapping for a long time.

    Overall this loop seems to use heaps less water and I haven't had to top it up yet, water level seems to just stay the same and it has been running for over a week. The 1000D/4 rad set up I had to keep topping up here and there for a few weeks but that was bigger/more complicated so I guess a lot more space for air to hide in. It would be nice to clean up the build with some nice cables but not really any point as the glass side faces the wall with all rgb off, best not to attract my kids attention to this...

    Oh man! So many nice rigs with gorgeous loops... sadness that the Meshlicious got delayed til the 5/5. Am looking forward to transplanting my rig and upgrading my loop when it gets here! There may be an influx in Meshlicious work logs when that happens :p

    I cracked it with my case and bought an O11D.

    It looks absolutely amazing, might I say. I have three SP120s coming for the top of the case too, and I'll switch the top rad to a 360. I also switched to an X570 and a 3700X.

    Nice build! They are a great case regardless of how you want to build in it. Strongly contemplating doing one with ek’s distro

    Distro plate is the way to go, they look magic and solve a lot of design problems but jesus... they're not cheap... :upset:

    Ahem, I'm sorry sir... but your post appears to be missing the prerequisite RGB-Drenched Money Shot.

    :)

    (for srs, about to start in on a "new" 1/2-3/4 build myself so this pleases me)

    Looks very nice and clean

    I should have gone the old school way.
    Did hard tubing once again but has been a prick this time.

    I don’t know where to do this but just wanted to say how happy I am with ek’s service. I bought an ARGB cpu block to go in my recently completed build without expecting the gpu craziness. Fast forward like 6 months build complete cpu block rgb is a dud. It’s long past the time I have to return it. Thought I’d ask ek anyway and explain I didn’t test it next time I will just to make sure. And without hesitation they gladly sent me a replacement. Not sure if the amount of money I have spent with them in the last 12 months was a factor but for a regular non commercial customer. I wasn’t expecting to be helped. So extremely pleased with ek’s customer service!

    Put a google review or some such in if you are happy with their service.

    Also , if it was only 6 months old I would assume it would still be under warranty.

    Fair probably would be under warranty still, but literally no send us the broken one and we’ll get back to you about it shenanigans. Literally sent them a photo explained how it’s setup and next email from them saying were sending you a new one. (The argb part not a whole block)

    Just very happy with the customer service and thought I’d share with the forum.

    I think I'm done now with my FT02 build. Only thing I would bother changing would probably be the Bay res/pump to a tube combo, it's too much of a pain to fill and bleed that one for some reason.

    Once I'm completely finished with my Meshlish build that I'm documenting in the PC Build Logs section, I'll post some good pics here. Still need to cable manage and tidy a few things up lol.

    It's the Alphacool TPV which is probably the same stuff, 12.7mm 7.6mm so pretty skinny but the have nice nylon fittings to match which hold one super tight!

    missed a spot, more purple needed!

    nice build!

    i need to change the coolant in my 2nd rig. looks like cum. and is loosing its color, all settling in the res. EK Cryo, not happy with this coolant whatsoever.

    5800X
    X570 STRIX
    Colorful 3080 Ultra OC with Bykski Block
    2 x 240mm Corsair Rads with Noctua AF12x25mm (dam these fans expensive $75 each, but do dam good)
    Corsair res pump combo
    EK fittings and tubing
    Caselabs Mercury S3 ITX Case

    Never see GPU temps above 40, and cpu temps above 60. mid 50s on load for a heavily tweaked/clocked zen3 chip is sweet!
