I recently got the Lian Li O11 XL case with RTX3090 hybrid along with CPU AIO 360. My CPU is a Ryzen 5950X running at 4.5Ghz with 32GB RAM running at 3800MHz.
 
I  was thinking of the following scenarios - What is the best placement for the radiators and fans for the above?
 
scenario#1:
bottom 3 fans - intake
CPU AIO 360 - side intake
GPU hybrid - top exhaust
back fan: exhaust
 
Scenario#2:
bottom 3 fans - intake
CPU AIO 360 - top exhaust
GPU hybrid - side exhaust
back fan: intake
 
Scenario#3:
bottom 3 fans - intake
CPU AIO 360 - top exhaust
GPU hybrid - side intake
back fan as - exhaust
 
Personally, I'm leaning towards Scenario 3, but don't like the idea as that GPU will dump a lot of heat into the case and itself. But the GPU will get fresh air into that radiator and most of it will get out thru the top and the back at a small expense to the CPU.

    I will choose scenario 1. Per my daily use in gaming, I found the heat generated from GPU is the thing most bothering me.
    CPU temperature can be handled by 360 AIO.
    And a positive airflow setup is a plus.

    I used to run my KPE 3090 last year front intake and yeah it dumps a serious amount of heat into your case when gaming. I ended up mounting it up top without much change to temps. I have the AIO now front case.
     
    I vote for scenario #1 too.

    the reason I like the GPU aio on the roof , is it makes it easier on the pump and CPU aio's can usually overcome bubbles better than the GPU units

    Not sure if that makes a difference as the hoses are always facing down on my rads and the top sides of the rads are above the pumps. So I see no bubble issue.
