pretty quiet

Felt the urge to upgrade from my O11 Dynamic when the Luxe 2 got released.
Thought I might aswell upgrade my motherboard already in preparation of the 3950x release and throw in an additional 480mm rad.

The 3x 360 rads in the O11 did already a pretty good job at keeping the system silent, only the pump was audible (still not loud, just audible).
Hence the brass dual D5 top, and 3x 360 GTS + 1x 480 GTS + GPU + CPU + Chipset is quite a bit of restriction. Still get about 90l/h with both pumps running at a fairly low speed, with both at 100% I'm looking at 240l/h.

Radiator mounting was fairly easy, going with a 360 in the side avoided any clearance issues in the top. The fans for the front rad are mounted on the outside (between the chassis and the front cover), required no modifications. But the IO panel is slightly too large to fit a 4th fan, a 100mm or 80mm might fit.

Fairly lucky that I bought the OEM editions of the 360mm GTS for my old build, clearance on the bottom and the side mounts would've caused issues if it was the non-OEM edition (which is 133mm wide while the OEM is just 120mm wide).

The chipset cooler from Watercool (the SB 3.0 LT) worked like a charm on the Gigabyte Aorus Pro, although GPU clearance is going to be an issue if the card is too wide and makes the 2nd PCIe slot unusable if the expansion card is too long. But temps never go above 40C and I don't have an angry little fan in my system.
