Many differnt questions. I think the best think is you are familiarize with watercooling, than you would see that many question could be answered yourself.

 

 

For example I have two radiators (45mm thick), a waterpump and one reservoir in my core x2 for cooling the cpu and gpu. The system in my configuration is still quiet.

 

 

Soo,, I may just be going a bit mad with the cooling option then from what it sounds like. Though I do want to cool the cpu, gpus, motherboard (i have found an adapter) and memory.. I figured 2 rads would be able to handle all of that.

Hi all 

 

My view on x2 

 

Almost perfect ... 

 

Rad support is great, not superb but great . I would like to have option to buy another 360 bracket for lower chamber, because i want to put down another rad instead of 3 brackets for SSD's ... I mean, you really expect to have somebody to stack 3-4 SSD's in a case ? I doubt it.... I think most of people will be satisfied with 1 SSD and 1 HDD, and place above PSU is perfect. So the right side will be mostly unused, except if i could buy bracket and put 360 on 1 side and 240 on other, plus 240 in front ( i need the top 5:25 ) 

 

My idea is to have make custom side panels and top one out of acrylic and show the WC , and rads etc will be down ...

 

So, do you plan to put the bracket in sale or i must make one by myself ????

Just curious, would the Core X2 hold an ATX motherboard? I love the cube shape, but I don't want anything too big, so the motherboard I'm getting is the Sabertooth 990FX keyboard, and looking to use watercooling for the AMD 8370 processor, and either the 980ti or Titan X for the video card. Which out of the 2 would be good; the Core X2 or Core X5?

So far so dont it seem like any of the places you can preorder the X9, carries extra panels, meaning it might take a while before we can swap them out.

 

Also, it seem that the design team didnt fully account for extreme builds. In 1 case so can you use 3 of 6 480mm rad mounting points, if you stack 2 so can you use 5 of 12 480mm rad mounting points. Its the psu that is the most limitling factor, as its only 2 places you can put it and each blocks 2 480mm rad mounting points.

I was thinking about this as well as my only rad now is on the bottom. I plan to add a second and I could put it on top but I prefer the look of them on the bottom with the RIING fans showing in push configuration. One option would be to add an extension to the motherboard tray toward whatever side you consider the back. The rails are plenty sturdy for this and it would give the case a proper "basement" area while adding a place to mount SSDs or Side mounted Reservoirs.

I have a question for the more adventurous people. Has anyone considered cutting out the PCI mounts and turning them so that you can put the GPUs on riser cables?  Give them more visibility as well. I have the window on the opposite side so that the CPU area is visible. I like to show off my board and block there, but then you only see the back of the GPU.

I'm looking for additional fan brackets for the Core X9 as well as a second power supply separator. All I'm seeing on the store is extra side panels (I'll likely get a second mesh panel). Are these still sold or am I late to the party and the series is no longer supported?

Also, is it possible to get the front USB 3 ports working with a motherboard that only has 1 header? I bought a splitter but only 1 of the USB sockets works.
