Well I think it’s time to add another rad. My single 360x30 just showed its limitations. The new MS flightsim. I hit 70’s on cpu which isn’t abnormal for zen 2 but mid 50’s on my 2080 super hydrocopper. Gonna have to put the fans on my folding profile while flying until then and live with the noise Increase. Debating between a 45 or 60mm 360 in the bottom in push pull (current 360 is in the roof in push) or a 30-45mm 420 in the front in push or push pull. Not sure what’s gonna be best for airflow. Currently a 140 in the rear as exhaust and the 3 120’s up top as exhaust then 3 140’s in the front as intake.

Well, having to RMA my GPU pushed me to order parts since I'm going to have to tear into the loop anyway.  Went with an Alphacool 420x30mm to go in the front, bought 3 non-RGB versions of my Fractal fans to use in moving the 360 to the bottom of the case so both rads are taking in outside air.  RGB 120's will stay up top as pure exhaust now.  Also ordered a couple inline temp sensors finally, and a 200mm tube to double my res capacity (more for looks than functionality).  Was going to get an Aquacomputer flow meter with the 3 pin cable, but realized I don't think it will actually talk to the water flow port on my motherboard.  Seems like everything is made to either plug into an Aquaero or a PWM fan header and I'm not sure what the Asus port wants.  Also picked up the Cuplex Kryos replacement bracket that modifies it to fit over Zen2/3 chiplet design CPU's better.  I figured $15 is a lot cheaper than a $100 Optimus block to see if it works better.
