The Arctic Freezer II 360.What cooler is that plate from, the EK AIO?
I was considering that but trimming as much as needed to fit would reach the gap where the screws are secured, compromising stability. Hope Arctic comes with a flat backplate.I guess youll need to be handy with a Dremel - you should be ok to reduce the size of the mounting plate to fit?
Alternative would be to have taller mobo standoffs.I was considering that but trimming as much as needed to fit would reach the gap where the screws are secured, compromising stability. Hope Arctic comes with a flat backplate.
I thought about it but would also interfere with the GPU mounted horizontally.Alternative would be to have taller mobo standoffs.
EDIT: Scrap that - would affect the I/O...
Tried one but returned. Didn’t even opened the PCI-E cable.Has anyone bought/installed the 'upright GPU' mounting accessory?
The 24Pin PSU and PCI cable look very close.
Does anyone know what thread are the 4 screws that go through the top of the case into the bracket?
I'm assuming just self-tapping but really hoping not.

The screw used to secure the bracket is the short ones, with the flattish head, similar to the ones used on previous O11s. The screw size is similar to the ones used to secure the motherboard, if I remember well.
The PCI-E cable will only be close to the 24pin cable if that one is loose, I mean, not using a sharp angle to tidy it up.
I decided to go with the vertical mount.
Personally, the PCI-E cable crossing the motherboard wasn’t ideal for me, but would be ok for a more complex build with few radiators and other bits around.
I understand the appeal, as it makes the case look very unique.
Here you go:
Ah man. I am currently waiting for a Lian li evo case and an arctic freezer II 360.
Hope I don't run into this issue. I'll be using an old 1151 bracket for a 8700k...
P.S - Does anyone know what the wait is these days on a black Lian Li Evo to order and ship out?
