Yea the ports only fit on the bottom. Unless you can get some extensions that are fairly slim and you mount the fans above the radiator on top, the top mount isn't happening. Definfetly get a pump/res comb then it will save you a major headache. I'd suggest the ek d5 revo with a ek uni mount, so it can go straight onto a fan mount.

Having the port at the bottom also allows for a good drain position as these rads dont have a drain port.

Radiators: 1 x 360 black ice gts + 1 x black ice 280 gtx / 2 x 360 black ice gts (someone on here earlier confirmed they do fit)

Fans: 3 X eloop b12-2 + 3x eloop b14-2/ 6 eloop b12-2 + 1x b14-2

Res: Not sure what size to go for, any recommendations?

Water Blocks- EK Titan XP (for a 1080ti founders), EK-Supremacy EVO

Pump: D5 PWM

Loop order: Pump --> GPU --> 360 rad --> CPU --> 280/360 rad --> res


Components
Ryzen 1700 (owned)
AS ROCK TAICHI mobo
16GB DDR 4
1080 TI founders EVGA (owned)
1x 256 M.2. ssd, 1x 512gb SATA ssd
EVGA Supernova G2 (owned)

I will say three things. First, I happen to prefer a 360 + 280 GTS. I find that the case is a little cramped to begin with, and that little bit of extra space is a help. You lose essentially nothing in cooling capacity, 140mm fans tend to have a smoother sound profile (and you can simply use the included F140MP which are excellent), and you lose nothing in terms of looks.

Second, the Monsoon MMRS using two 50mm tubes with a coupler and D5 mount is an absolute perfect fit, and even bolts into existing holes.

Last....are you sure you really want an AsRock?

This.

Or dual GTS 280 so you can fit a rear exhaust fan.

For the res think I should go for the 150ml as suggested. 250 is just a bit too big for comfort and can't make a clean line from the CPU inlet to the Res. Thinking of going for the phobya balancer 150

Re. ASROCK the quality from what im reading is top end and it does not have the same bit too overdone design of the fatality or several of the other high end gaming boards on X370.



Plan so far: Ignore that the branding of the parts dont match on the fans, res and components, im using this more as a size guide (though the rads are the same black ice gts I pan to use)

There's nothing wrong with ASRock boards. They have the same problems as anyone else and reliability on par with MSI and Gigabyte while offering more features and overclocking potential for less money.

Also, a single 360 and a 240 will be more than enough cooling for those components. You don't need to force a second 360 in there. A 280 is even unnecessary, but as said the fans usually are quieter for the same performance and the case comes with good 140mm fans.

I would personally avoid ASRock. Beyond my own personal negative experience, their mobo software is objectively bad. Their customer support makes Asus look like EVGA. Asus, Gigabyte and MSI, in that order, are all better options.

It's a slim 140 with 120 mount holes. Actually moves lots of air while being pretty much inaudible. It however has maybe .05mm clearance from the fitting biggrin.gif

Can't say I agree with that about ASRock. The quality of every component on the board is a clear step below Asus, MSI or Gigabyte.

I will say that I absolutely agree with this. I have never had the pleasure of dealing with ASRock support, though.

The quality of the multitude of components or the lack thereof? Such as VRM and RAM phases, audio chips, etc.?
