Default Hydro X in Obsidian Series 500D RGB

I have seen videos of Hydro in this case but Im getting ROG Strix 2080 ti OC going into the vertical mount. Im wondering if the 360 mm rad will work in the front along with the reservoir attach to it. The config says 120 rad for the front I want to replace it with a 360 rad. The config code is 1f78na . I hope the GPU has room to Clear the reservoir. I tried Asus GPU and it shows 360 in the front not the ROG ones. Asus Brand is 3.5 cm shorter then ROG brand.

Hi!

If you are going with a vertically mounted ROG Strix 2080 Ti OC, then yes, you will be able to use a 360mm (XR5 360) radiator in the front along with the XD5 RGB Pump/Res unit.
For reference, please see the image below.

One more thing Commander Pro has 2 RGB ports on it and Hydro X needs 3 RGB ports to make everything works. How can I connect 3 RGB cables to the Commander Pro? The case Comes with Fan RGB hub and the Commander Pro that means one of the RGB port is already be occupied. So I’m confuse here I look everywhere else nothing can solves this issue before I can buy Custom RGB cooling. What it looks like I need Node Pro controller for the Hydro X

XG7 GPU water blocks and the XD5 Pump/Res unit can be daisy chained so you will not need so many RGB ports. One RGB channel is sufficient for up to 2 GPU water blocks, 1 pump and 1 CPU water block.
In your case, you can start with the XD5 Pump/Res, daisy chain it to XG7 GPU water block and as last connect the XC7/XC9 CPU water block.

For more information I recommend to check our CORSAIR Hydro X Series Custom Cooling channel.

Is the waterblock size of the rtx 2080ti rog strix the same as the rtx 2080 super rog strix?


I'm building my new pc with the corsair obsidian 500d rgb and the rtx 2080 super rog strix and I wanna get the hydro x system for both cpu and gpu.
The configurator suggests me to get a 120mm front radiator, a 240mm top radiator and a 120mm rear radiator, but I wanna get a 360mm front radiator like the user mentioned and a 240mm top radiator, will it fit? I can install a vertical gpu mount if necessary.

This may help...The RGB cables chain from the Commander Pro to the XD5 Pump. from the XD5 pump they go to the XG7 GPU Block, From the XG7 GPU block they go to the XC7/XC9 CPU Block

Single Pump setup




or if splitting the loop

dual pump setup




More info here on setting it up.

Hey!

Sorry for barging in like this, but I was wondering if you guys can also help me with a dilemma regarding the Hydro X Cooling and the 500D SE RGB case and its radiator support?

Ok, I know that the case supports 120 radiator on the back, 280 up top and 360 in the front, but does it support all of them mounted at the same time?
I'm planning to use hard tubes and cool both my GPU and CPU. GPU (2080 TI Strix OC) will be mounted vertically and the pump will be attached to the front 360 rad.
Considering above I'm really wondering if it will all fit?

Thanks!

Since I was't getting a proper answer I decided to order both the obsidian 500d rgb and the custom loop with a 360mm and a 240mm radiator. When I'll recieve all the stuff I'll try to make the loop and give you a real feedback. If It'll not fit I'll return the case and get a bigger one.

Here is a 500d build video with a 240 rad up top and a 360 rad in the front.

Hi!
The GPU water block for the 2080 Ti Strix is a few milimeters longer compared to the GPU water block for the 2080 Strix.
When installed on a vertical mount found in the 500D you will be able to install XR5 360 on front and XR5 240 on top.
With long GPU water block model such as the Strix one you will need to mount the pump unit in such way that the outlet of the pump will face towards the rear side of the case.

Hi!
Can confirm that the 500D can be fitted with XR5 360 on front, XR5 240 on top and XR5120 on back.

This is what I was waiting for! Thanks GregX! :)

Thanks. But I was actually asking about XR5 280 on top along side with XR5 360 on front, and XR5 120 on back. Can this also fit the case?

I thought so, thanks.
So 280 on top and 360 on front (without 120 in the back) will work OK?
