Not really, I have reviewed it at launch and while it looks very nice, it can only accommodate soft tubing, if you wish to use the sliding radiator frames. It also has horrendous air allowance.
I have helped to build (for a friend) a triple loop cooling system inside it, with 2x 480mm radiators and 1x 420mm radiator, using hard tubing, which negated the possibility to slide the frames without bleeding the whole system. There was simply not enough air going through to allow proper cooling without ramping up the fans. Don't get me wrong, it worked, but could have worked better. Taking down the frontal tempered glass panel and the top one helped cooling tremendously. One extra inch air allowance on top and front would have made wonders.

The client of the build send the case back.

i only use soft tube anyways, however after my time with 900D, i'm good on 1000D.

The sliding radiator thing is a decent idea, but what concessions were made in terms of space and customization to implement a feature that honestly isn't even that useful.

also, as you said yes, definitely looks like an air trap.

I think I'll stick to my STH10, and eventually the LianLi DK05.

My biggest gripe with Aquacomputer is how flimsy and thin their cables are. Just had a 3rd calitemp cable break on me. So thin and the connector is so small that all the breaks are at the connector making the cable unfixable

For the price they charge for the cables you’d think they would be better shielded against breaks like this but nope all are super thin and break super easy. Just moving the cable around can break it.

Seems I have a dead Quadro. Anything I plug into it doesn’t work. Need to reformat so not sure if it’s showing up in Windows yet.
Just won’t start any fans connected to it.

Will investigate more

It may be necessary to update the controller software.

I’m hoping that’s just it. I’ll reformat tomorrow and see. I did just get a new one that I don’t think I updated the firmware for before I took the rig offline so that could be it. I know I mixed up what was new and what wasn’t.

THIS!!! I've broken two cables and I haven't even finalized my system or completed my build yet! You would think that a thicker gauge wire would be used or something! Whenever I make an order for gear, I sometimes just throw in a few extra of each cable just in case... Now that I think about it though, I'm just adding to the problem... Why would they build better cables when they have idiots like me who buy extra just because they can't or choose not to afford the downtime?
