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.
