    I tried 20mm and 25mm, thos heights displace PSU holder a little to front and cables from PSU became to close to front glass window. So, I selected height only 15mm.

    Thanks for the explanation.

     

    I started receiving parts and began putting them together. The two things that worries me the most are the clearance for AIO cooler and RAM.

    The Z53 AIO that I have is quite thick with 52.4mm water block height and 30mm radiator height. I did a test fit and was able to stuck that in between the PSU holder and case. The side touching PSU holder cannot fit with protruding screws, so I left that unscrewed. I'm still looking into ways to secure the AIO cooler similar to yours.

    I was able to close the top panel without cutting the extra plastics for included fans, but I might remove them purely for aesthetics. 

     

    Once my motherboard arrives, I will report further results later.

    Hello Kyle, thank you for your reply.

     

    1) About size of radiator. Yes you can use H100i AIO. The size of radiator of both AIO is almost the same:
    LC240: 272 x 122 x 27 mm
    H100i: 277 x 120 x 27 mm

    I think any 240mm radiator can fit in this place. Only existing limitation is height. There is no more space to fit higher radiator or higher fan. And pay attention to fans and pump holders. One of fans need to be placed very close to upper pump holder. I cut one fan's holder to fit fans above memory and pump holder. I attach photo to show where to pay attention.

     

    2) About H100i. I used it once in one of my previous builds. H100i was perfect.

     

    3) About leaks. I use many years All-In-One water cooling from different brands like Asus, Gigabyte, Corsair, Coolermaster, Enermax - all work fine, and I never saw any leaks. For me there is no difference between brands. All brands has high quality and good temperature cooling. The only little difference for me is connection type and posibility of PWM on fans. I use overclocking and PWM of all fans to make system silent. Sometimes some AIO has his own management and you need use different software. In my build both Asus MB and Asus AIO work nice together. Is the first time I use it together and I happy how it work. For overclocking and PWM management I use "AI Suite 3" and for lights I use "Armory Crate" (both ASUS software).

    Hi Andrey,

     

    Cool build there! I'm thinking of using NZXT Z53 240mm AIO with radiator Dimensions: 123 x 275 x 30mm. Do you think height above 27mm is possible at all? I know it is pushing the limitation.

     

    Thanks
