WOW that gpu/watercooling mod is amazing. I have the exact same graphicscard and want to mount watercooling onto the pcb, but the NZXT G12 doesn't fit. How did you make it fit into the original cooling shroud? Do you have pictures of the process or could you somehow describe somewhat in detail how you managed fit it in the shroud... Thanks in advance!
I was inspired by our build and sold my H100i and bought the NH-D15 with the Chromax black fans and white panel. But I struggled with the same issues as you did with getting the massive cooler installed. I realized that I couldn't preinstall the mobo and put the cooler on afterwars, because of the confined space. I had to fit it all together and install the mobo afterwards with the cooler preinstalled, but that meant I couldn't install the top left screw on the mobo with the cooler blocking the access.
However I found a solution. I realized that the spacers for the mobo could be unscrewed and accessed from the back of the motherboard. Then I bought a 6mm spacer with threaded ends in both ends. Screwed the spacer on the mobo from the top before installing the mobo and tightened a screw on the back of the mobo plate when everything was in place. This really resolves a lot of issues.
What a clean and awesome build. I was wondering about the temps on your strix card since it sits very close to the psu chamber. Any readings on that? Looking to do and almost similar build just all black with blue leds :-P
