EK-Kit X360 with Phanteks Evolv X...

The EK radiator that comes with the EK-Kit X360 water loop kit is 60mm thick. Add to that the thickness of a 120mm fan= 25mm. So, that's 85mm thick.

I want to put that X360 w/ 3 fans on the top of the case. I cannot tell if there will be enough room. I'm confused by the message from Phanteks customer service about whether it will fit or not. The image shows 65mm of space.... enough for the rad, but not w/ the fans...

The motherboard will be the Asus Maximus 'Formula XI'. I'll hate to have to send back the loop kit to EK.

it is 65mm from top to mobo edge at 9:07


now if you look at 6:23 the rad is offset, away from the mobo so low profile ram will fit w/o an issue. you'll just have 20mm covering the top edge.

DOH...

I appreciate you taking the time. But, I'm not seeing what you're seeing. Sorry.

*EDIT*... Ah, you believe there's nothing tall along the edge of the MB to prevent the rad/fans to have enough room, correct?

The Phanteks Evolv X and the 9900K are on order. The Asus Maximus 'Formula' MB I have not even been able to pre-order yet. I'm still trying to decide which 2080ti ....I'm leaning to EVGA, but don't know which one. I will not OC the vid card.

It will "fit", but will likely hang down so low that it will be in front of the CPU block.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

yes, as ciarlatano mentioned.

without try to sound confusing it's the depth when looking in the side. so from the motherboard tray; the standoffs, thickness of the motherboard and "height" of the RAM, vrm heatsinks and cpu block need to be 50mm or less. i'm sure everything but the ram isn't an issue.

i found this pic w/google and i believe that could be EK XE360 that is 60mm:

Spoiler!


everything looks good - just need the cpu power plug and ram installed before installing the fans or rad w/fans (that is usual) if 85mm-65mm= 20mm (less than 25mm fan thickness.)

That appears to be a 38mm thick PE360.

With that image and explanation, I see how the the case top rad/fans fit there.... Thanks. My fans will blow out thru the radiator. Three fans in front blowing in. Rear 120 or 140 fan blowing out.

So, I'll get the EK-Kit X360 water cpu-only kit. I'm going to get the PrimoChill 'blood red' flex tubing. The Evolv X is on order through PerfPC's.

I have been unable to even pre-order the Z390 Asus Maximus 'Formula XI' yet. The 9900K cpu is pre-ordered.

With the above description of how I want to set up the fans, etc, which EVGA 2080ti should I get? (I will not OC the vid card.)

sorry my friend but that's a bad case choice for the kind of set up you want to do. You'll be so sorry even if you manage to cram it in. You should really be looking at something similar but larger and more comfortable like TT x71:

Just received this email from EK customer tech: He says it will NOT fit!! I don't know what to do...

Thank you for contacting us.
That is correct, if you have only 65mm of space there you won't be able to fit the X kit in this case.
I would suggest getting the S kit for this case, where the radiator is 28mm + fans 25mm, so there won't be any issues with that.

Again.....it does fit due to the offset on the top mounting. However, it will hang in front of the CPU block, and is a terrible rad choice for the case to begin with. Though, the S Kit is a far worse choice given that it uses literally the worst rad on the market.

You can do the XE in the front, or you can put the pieces together to use a PE rad. Or....you can simply put together a loop yourself.
