Finally managed to fulfill my dream and made fully P/P setup with 3 rads in a case.
Build consists of 3 420 GTX radiators. Because of space limitations, I had to use MATX motherboard - B650M HDV/M2 :D Its a bit funny that fans are more than 3x the price of a mobo.
Any suggestions what could be changed?

I like that, great job all round. I do like the minimal look.

I'm just starting my very first WC build and I decided to go for the O11D Mini so I'll have a little less room. I've also got the Corsair LED fans with all the cables and paraphernalia that goes with!

Seeing your build is making me think I should consider less RGB and simplify. Then I think about how much I love all my RGB and re-consider! :cry:

I'm not familiar with this case, so a quick question. Is the pump located behind the motherboard tray and what is clearance like with the psu?
Any pics of the completed look behind there?
Thanks

Dont have any more than the one above - you have to mod the psu mount and move it down to fit. Standard o11 evo is better for it as it has 2 psu positions.

If someone's buying from scratch, it would definitely be worth looking at the EK FLT 80 or 120 pump/res. You'd lose some liquid volume, but increase options for putting it out of the way.

Thays true, but I've had flt before and found it incredibly noisy and much harder to bleed than heatkiller.

That's awesome, I've built 2 black on black murdered out themed builds in the last year - a MITX/MATX, so this majorly appeals to me, very nicely done mate!
