That looks amazing! The lights work great with the layout, can you show a pic of the tubing on the back side?

Having a tough time selecting my next pc case. I have now thrown this into the mix, not sure on which case to get. I don't want an overly large one and I don't want anything that cant fit at least 2 360 54-60mm rads. Any issues with this Lian Li?

Hi
No issues with this or PC-O10 Lian li case I purchased and I certainly wouldn't hesitate recommending this case to anyone.

However if there was one thing I could change it would be the way the glass panels are mounted to the case. Can be little fiddly until you have the top screws in place.
Other than that the fit and finish is very good.

Thanks, I have kinda narrowed it down to the tower 900, sm8, i took off the overly expensive enthoo elite. I wanted a case to be not too big and not too small but at least able to accommodate 2 360mm rads

Had picked this case before seeing either Paultoke or Jsunn. It will be my 4th LianLi. Both logs are fanatastic and have convinced me to go UW and leave my Noctua NH-D14 and 8 case fans to slowly die. I congratulate both of you and anyone buying this case must peruse both forums as well as PacMan3E3.

The three downsides to this case AFIK are:

1. You can't use a thick RAD like the XE360 due to the 80mm and 70mm limit top and bottom.
2. Due to the design there is height limit between MB and Glass of about 150mm (This is their CPU cooling support limit) - That is why we have the GPU riser kit.
3. Due to the Glass front there is not much point in placing fans or RADS at the front.

My questions for you guys.

Is there an advantage of using a larger reservoir like the EK-Res X4 250 over the smaller EK's that come with the kits especially if I was not going to put my GPU UW?

Is the Phanteks C350i better than the EK-Supremacy?

Why choose either Magical G2 slim over EK PE360 or HWL GTS 360?

I assume in both builds the air is moving from bottom to top?

Hi

Regarding the EK-Res X4 250

The res is made of glass so will not stain or scratch. It is also optically very clear.
Also has its own lighting.

I used this res to get symmetry/balance as I was using a large E-atx motherboard and Strix 1080 graphics card.
Putting a smaller res in would not affect the performance but in my opinion would not have looked as pleasing.

The downside to the EK is its water flow direction, it has a dedicated in and out unlike the Phanteks thus making the layout easy to plan on the Phanteks.

Magical G2 slim and HWL GTS 360 very similar in performance and size, either would have been ok in my build. More of a case of what I could buy at the time.
However the EK PE360 would have been to thick to enable me to use the pass-through pipe setup used.

Regarding thick radiators
All modern CPU's and graphics cards have very low TDP output compared to a few years back and are easier to cool.
There is not much advantage now day to thick radiator unless you intend to overclock the crap out of your CPU and Graphics card. Or you have a big case and you want to fill the space.
There are downsides to thick radiators weight and air flow restriction. This can case airflow and fan noise, personally I like my build to be virtual silent.
If noise is not an issue and the case is large enough then there is nothing wrong with using thick radiators but then you wouldn't be using this style case.

The residual heat from the components and the fans set to extract would cause convection and as such pull in air from the bottom.

Hope this helps
