It's just a Cablemods vertical bracket, unfortunately.

I honestly didn't even discover this until I completed my build and tried to put the side glass on. That moment was stressful, to say the least.

I believe this is one of the largest 2080 ti PCB's and it does fit with the EK block. It's just extremely close and if your card is not perfectly snug in the PCI-E slot, the glass won't close.

I just snapped a pic to try and demonstrate how tight it truly is. Believe it or not, there is a slight gap there...



The other issue with the EK block on the FTW3 PCB is that it's quite long. So unless I got creative with my pump mounting, I couldn't fit the GPU vertically. Even though I do have a vertical bracket for the 011 XL.

If I could do it all again, I'd have purchased a 2080 ti with the reference PCB as those have more GPU block options and the blocks are a bit smaller. But, the FTW3 + EK block does fit, nonetheless.
This is interesting. A buddy of a buddy with the same GPU and XL says he can't close the glass without removing the terminal cover. This is something I do like very much about my Phanteks P600S. It's very roomy with the width. I also have the EVGA 2080 Ti FTW3 and EK Vector water-block and my block sits almost an inch back from the glass, it looks very comfortable. I like the Lian Li 011 XL very much and am still considering building in one, I just wish they went a little bit wider to accommodate the very large water-blocks. Oh and yes I am very lucky my GPU went in horizontally. The tail end of the water block touches right on the pump/res. I actually have to apply a bit of force to get the GPU seated into the PCIE slot properly. This was all trial and error (the pump mounting) and was not pre-measured. I could just as easily have had a GPU that didn't go in. Your build is extremely clean and very nice looking BTW.

Thanks!

I've heard of others who were unable to get their 2080 ti FTW3 + EK block to fit in the 011 XL, as well. The only thing I can think of is their motherboard stand offs are slightly taller. That, or they haven't pushed their GPU fully snug into the PCI-e slot. With my tinkering over the last few months, I have run into a couple of situations in which the glass wouldn't shut. Upon inspection, my GPU was just barely not 100% snug into the PCI-e slot.

We're literally talking 1mm clearance, at most. So it could be a number of things, including something as trivial as not tightening the motherboard stand off screws in firmly enough, or even motherboard thickness. Regardless, if you have a 2080 ti with a non-reference PCB and an EK block, and your considering this case, I'd play it safe and plan on going vertical mount to avoid a potential massive headache. In retrospect, I really think I just got lucky.

Indeed. I am actually waiting on the Dual vertical mount from Lian Li. Found it @ https://www.overclockers.co.uk/lian-...ca-77p-ll.html. It is out of stock everywhere and where it isn't it is price gouged like fleabay. Cannot wait until I get it.

Damn! Now I have to have that. I'll keep checking for inventory to come in stock, as well.
