    "You can completely CUSTOMIZE it to your specifications at" lol. Just as long as you choose either a GTX 2070 super or a GTX 2080 super. I know the graphics card requires a custom made block for the hardline tubes and that the 30 series is almost impossible to find but the fact that you can't configure the element cl to have a 30 series Nvidia is really disappointing. It makes me think that the experiment was a failure and that they are giving up on the element cl line. Either there is q catastrophic flaw or the cost to make the machine is just too much. It's a bummer bc I really fell in love with this csse. But it sucks bc there is a viseo card already out and costs roughly the same price as the 20 series, but they aren't available foe this case setup.

    Just got mine. It does look cool but jesus the pump sounds like a boat motor, also it has some random poor quality fan attached to the top which cannot be controlled through BIOS. On top of all that the cable management is such a jungle that side panel won't even close. They just bent two of the metal hooks back and sent it to me with a big bulge in the metal and a gap in the panel.

    people get hung up on the aluminum thing too much. it's going to be fine even IF you mix metals, and aluminum as a full solution will do an excellent job. you'd have more of a difference between the binning of cpu and gpu over aluminum vs copper cooling.

    You'd think a company would hold off launching/ promoting a new build till they got their hands on some 3000 cards. The price probably would have come down a little (if using a 3070) and it would have been quite a bit more capable when it comes to gaming performance.

    How this thing even breaths, ok water will soak up a lot of heat but it is an acrylic box with the rad on the side and no airflow, this will become a furnace after a few hours on.... Maybe i missed something but as a design it seems a bit poorly thought out.

    biggest downside of the aluminum is it makes changing the gpu and block limited to that material choice else risk mixing metals and all the fun involved with that

    Hang on, did they ship this prefilled or did you just not show the whole filling and assembly? Because holy shit I certainly hope they didn't ship a 2200 dollar piece of electronics with water inside it... Also a single radiator of that size is going to struggle keeping that CPU and GPU cool without the fans going into serious overdrive. The system looks super clean, but you lose the single most important part of water cooling; silence. The water temp is going to get uncomfortably hot running the fans at low RPM.
