This is my first Ryzen build. Despite having R2D2 in there, it's technically not a Star Wars theme. He was just sitting on my desk so I threw him in there :)
Anyway, the CPU AIO (Captain 240ex RGB) is mounted to the front, however the hoses obstructed the first PCIe slot. I tried to finnagle them but it was too tight so I had to move the GPU to the second slot, thus reducing the bandwidth. (Aside from benchmark scores though, I see no real world effect. Games run fine at X8 slot speed). I could have mounted the rad to the top but it wouldn't look right.
The GPU is an Asus 1080 TI Turbo with an NZXT Kraken G12 installed and paired with a Corsair H55 cooler. I removed the bottom drive cage and installed the rad there. The CPU is set up as push/pull, and GPU is pull, both are configured as intakes. Yes, I'm aware that this configuration introduces heat into the case, but the temps are GREAT!!! When idle, the CPU is at 30-31c, with the GPU at 26c. Under full load, the CPU averages between 55-60c, and the GPU has averages 45-50c (without overclocking, which I'll play around with later).
All RGB lighting (fans, RAM, mobo, and AIO) are perfectly synced up with Aura and working great.
I painted the PCI expansion slot covers white, which I think adds a nice contrast against the black mobo. All in all this was a fun build, but the Focus G case can make cable management very challenging, especially when you add PSU cable extensions. Anybody who owns this case can probably attest to that lol.
Thanks for looking!
