Description

Dual EKWB XE 360 radiator should not be able to fit in this case, but it does. I had to sacrifice two fan slots to make it work.

This is my first water cooling build, bends were planned out but there was some issues, the back to front bend from the CPU to Pump was like 8 bends and a nightmare. Bends were made to work more than made to look good because of this, I would like to rethink the layout of them in the future but for now it works. They currently block access to a lot of the cords making everything a PITA to plug in.

All RGB is in sync with ASUS aura and it's just amazing what you can do with it. I don't think RGB is really worth it, but its baked into so much at this point that you might as well embrace it? (at least in over the top builds)

Took a lot of planing and buying parts on sales like black friday to try and mitigate the cost... haha. EK had a decent sale so everything is EK for water cooling.

Parts list is just for the Desktop.

Top screens are desktop Win 10 screens OC to 100hz for games and content consumption. Bottom screens are laptop Pop!_OS for work. Synergy (like version 1.1.10 stable) to KVM between them works great.

The O11D’s specifications states it can support two 360mm rads

Now I would have just used a smaller radiator in the bottom while still being a 360mm for the fan slots

I would have put a thinner 360 rad on the back side, but I read on r/watercooling somewhere the case could fit 2x XE rads with one on the side (I assumed incorrectly it was on the backside) haha. The karma of taking advice on the internet and not measuring >_>

I'm still in search of something thicker than the CoolStream SE 360 that can fit in the side. So far, the only one specs-wise that looks like it might is the Magicool 360S G2 Ultra Radiator. Though, I'm wondering how much better the performance of the Magicool is than the EK SE (if at all).

This is the coolest setup I’ve ever seen. Beautiful pc as well

Nice build! Finally somebody who uses riing trios with tt sync controller and asus aura. I have so many questions. How well does it work? Are you able to control each lighting zone of the riing trio's individually? (two outer rings and the inner fan blades) I just love the riing trios and i'm really looking forward to having them in my build as well.

Hi, Can you help me by answering the questions?
Do you hear the cpu coin whine when you have your ear close to the back or the front of the cpu when it run?
When you plug in your speaker or headphone, do you hear that coin whine on your speaker?
I am having that problem. The coin whine is not loud and unnoticeable if you are not in a quite room, but when you plug in the speaker, it is so loud.
I use Asus z390 E gaming mother board. I am looking for the solution for my issue. I hope it is because of the board that cause the cpu to sound like that so it is cheaper and I have more options to replace it. Any helps from other builder of asus and intel chip are appreciated! I got the same noise like in these video below:

could you have used the 140mm version of those fans in this case?

No, all the holes are 120mm for fans

I think your implementation of RGB is great. To me, RGB makes the most sense when it's used on fans. I can do without it otherwise.

Great job, especially for a first water cooled build. Someday I'll dive in, too.

Are you doing some major overclocking? I'm curious about all these setups that have double radiators in the PC-O11D.

I just did a build with a single 28mm thick 360 and the performance seems like plenty. I've even overclocked my CPU and RTX 2080 a bit with temps perfectly normal. But I see all these double and triple radiator builds and I'm sitting here wondering if I'm missing out on some huge gains or it is just "because watercooling"?

Also, holy cow, I've got the same EK pump combo and had no idea it could fit there! I'm assuming you just screwed it into the vents of the cage cover? Edit: Nevermind. I don't see the cover so it looks like you drilled some holes for the mounting. Nice!

There was literally two holes with perfect spacing there for the pump on the back, The rads are overkill but yea Im doing 5.2Ghz on the CPU, still have to figure out the GPU OC.

Amazing build. What mount do you have for your monitors? Those are 27" on the top, right?

Is what I have, the fix bar is nice when you have heavier monitors.

Is there room for a 30mm radiator and 25mm thick fans under the vertical GPU bracket?

  • 12 months ago

Ive seen other builds do it, but idk if they have the EK SE rads which are 28mm instead of 30mm. Or if it was just fans and I didn't notice.

You can view builds with this case via https://pcpartpicker.com/builds/by_part/VxRzK8

Or just wait for the PC O11 XL to come out
