Oh, that's a dual 8pin Lian Li Strimer, I believe there's a Strimer Plus or V2 around now. Here's a link as an example

Edit - Do take note as to where you'll be connecting it to your PCIe connetors, from top or from below the GPU, and do take particular note of where the clip-on thingamajig is on your GPU and on the connector.  The reason why mine looked a little uneven is because I'd had to move the fiber optic tubes (for RGB) to the reverse side because the clip was on the wrong side.

Some GPUs have the the clip on top, some below. My Sapphire Nitro+ happened to have it on top which was why I'd had to move the fiber optics tubes to the reverse side....I hope you get what I mean.

Nice! AMD reference design weren't always the nicest lookin' or that effective, right up to the last blower type on the RX 5000 cards. AMD had made great improvement by leaps and bounds with the RX 6000 card, the blower type cooler went the way of the Dodo and in came this cool (pun's fully intended) lookin' triple fan design which I like.

I'm so happy to see this design iteration being carried forward to the RX 7000 cards, though the junction temp issue is of great concern. I too, amd looking forward to getting back home and starting work on my 2nd rig, being build from my spare R9 3900X + Nitro+ RX 6900 XT (after my 5900X + RX 7900 XTX upgrade). When done, I'll have two powerful all AMD rigs to game with, so I can't wait to get back. 

Oh yeah, do post pics of your rig when you're done, always nice to see others who are enthusiastic about their builds...

Yes, let's see some pictures of the build as you assemble it.  Maybe a blog?  Don't forget a picture of the parts too, so everyone can drool when looking at them.

As Albert Einstein said, "I could have done so much more with a Big Al's Computer!".

Too much ? lol

Recycle Case Till I get the Thermaletake P3Recycle Case Till I get the Thermaletake P3

Very nice! At first, with a quick glance, I was wondering where the RX 6900 XT because all I saw was Gigabyte and the Aorus branding.😘 Big fan of Gigabyte Aorus myself, I have two X570 Aorus mobos, and I do have a GPU brace thingamajig (yes, marvel at my technical prowess and my use of all the technical terms) except mine's RGB. RGB, as you very well know, improves system stability, ensure max OCability, improves cooling and yes folk. can bring about world peace.

Edit - This pic is of my present system, with an old pair of 2x 8GB Patriot Viper RGB 3600MHz, which will be replaced by 2x 16GB Corsair RGB RT 3600C16 when I get back. I will also replace the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 6900 XT with the MERC 310 RX 7900 XTX. The former will go into a new build I'd planned for, and have already gotten all the parts needed for a build when I get back. This 2nd gaming rig is basically spec'ed like my main rig a few months back, except for a new mobo and some other parts:

GB X570S Aorus Elite AX. 2x 16GB Patriot Viper Elite II 4000MHz, Sapp Nitro+ RX 6900 XT, Crucial P3 Plus 500GB NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen 4 (OS), 4TB Leven JS600 SATA SSD, 2x 1TB Samsung 860 EVO SATA SSD, 2TB WD HDD (downloads/Music/etc), Enermax MAXREVO 1500W, Thermaltake View 31 Or SOLDAM XR-1 Black Knight (haven't decided on case yet).

Love your build! May I ask which 16-pin cord you're using for your GPU? I love it.. and they're really hard to find online!

Incredible, thank you so much!! 🙂

Nice! I'm thinking of getting two of those dinky monitors myself for hardware monitoring (are yours Lamptron?), one for my main rig (in sig), the other for my soon to be built 3900X + RX 6900 XT. Not gonna mount them inside the case thought, not practical for me as my rigs are usually on the floor, they'll be on my desk, perhaps under my monitor.

I'm still undecided as to what size and screen format to get, I'm liking those 8.8" - 12" 1920x480 screens, also looking at a 7" 1024x600, maybe one of each? The only thing holding me back is would AIDA64 or HWInfo64 be able to be used with these off-brand displays? And perhaps, whether setting up AIDA64/HWInfo64 would be easy, or difficult? I'm an old dog, and it's somewhat true, you can't teach an old dog new tricks....😥
