I would say ... it strongly depends how wide your GPU and/or how thick the water bridge between them is. A year ago I had 2x GTX 960 in my x5 and 2x tfc xchanger 360 Rads inside (top). Today I have a watercooled gtx 1080 and I specifically bought the founders edition because of the width of the card. Every grafics card wider than the slot cover bracket might cause clearance problems with a 60mm rad. And the gpu waterblock can’t be much wider either. My ek waterblock on my gtx 1080 barely fits.

Because of this clearance problem i am modding my case right now to have more room for the 8pin connectors. I laser cutted Custom aluminum brackets to hold the Rads right under the top cover and two Rads in the buttom compartment.

Btw sry for the messy build in the first picture ... i don´t have a better picture right now on my phone and yes i painted the white fans in black and red afterwards.

Yeah .. today it’s the bad or the ugly I think. As I searched for a gtx 1080 I wanted a card with a better power delivery and better power components to avoid/minimize coil whine but every non reference card wouldn’t fit and the most reference cards where just basic models only asus had a card with better components in the reference design as far as I know. I was only a tiny bit away to do the same as you did and ditch my Rads to be able to buy a better card.

In the end I bought a used gtx 1080 founders edition card so I could test it before. Maybe this sounds dump but I hate loud coil whine so much even if I know that it isn’t damaging the card ... it is Ultra annoying when you have a super silent system and your grafics card is the loudest part of it.

Hello everyone

I had a bit of free time today and worked again on my x5 case. But there is much more left to get done. Dirty cutting work is mostly over.

X9 build finally complete

Figured I would share my build. I bought system that had a poorly setup loop in it. I decided to redo the loop after I moved my upgraded hardware into it. I had purchased the tower 900 but have not opened it and decided to give the loop a try in the x9 first, after finishing it today, the tower 900 is going back!

Specs:
Processor: AMD 2990wx 32 core / 64 thread at 4.2 ghz all core
Memory: 64gb DDR4 3000 MHZ (at 3200)
GPU: 4x 1080ti
Storage: 1tb nvme, 512 nvme, 256 m.2 ssd (have 2x more 2.5 ssd, but not sure I need them in here)

Cooling: 2x EK-CoolStream XE 480, 1x EK-CoolStream 240
Pump: EK-XTOP Revo Dual D5 PWM Serial (2x D5)
Fans: (10x) EK-Furious Vardar EVO 120 (3000rpm)
Reservoirs: EK-RES X3 110, 2x 250 double Helix Res

This case is a monster. I do wish there were tempered glass side panels available, I might make custom side panels, but for now I plan on running with the side panels off. I am debating switching to rigid tubing, but not sure I want to do all that considering I just got this finished. I also put a little bit too much primochill blue uv dye into the fluid, but it doesn't look terrible.

Is the X5 shorter top-to-bottom than the X9? I have 60mm rads in the top of my X9 and there's still maybe 3cm of space between the fans on the bottom and the graphics card waterblock bridge. I'm using 2x Titan RTX cards with Bitspower 20-series water blocks and their SLI 2/3 way water block bridge.

Hi All,


I just bought what is probably one of the last X9's (i heard they are discontinued!). Late to the party i know.


It has not arrived yet, but i have been spending some time trying to figure out how i am going to setup my fans.



The only water cooling will be a corsair h105 for the CPU, my GPUs are air cooled.



The main question i'd like some input on is whether it would be a bad idea to have a mixture of intake and exhaust fans on the top. Whether that be one side intake, one side exhaust or do it the other way and have 4 at the rear and 4 at the front as intake/exhaust.



Originally i was going to go all exhaust on the top, with the cpu rad also mounted at the top as for towards the front of the case as possible. But i am worried that is too much exhaust and will end up not having positive air pressure in the case



im almost certainly going to run one 200mm intake on the bottom front, the rest is tbd.


would love some advice


cheers

Golden rule regarding water cooling: Radiators need cold air.
So always have your radiator intakes pull air from the outside of the case (or push it into the case depending on your config).

I have both 200mm front intake, rear lower 140mm intake, 3 floor 120mm intake, 8 120mm top radiator push exhaust, and rear upper 140mm exhaust:
