Hight for what? The rads?  360mm is best, for thickness that's up to you, the regular ones are 30 or 40mm thick which is good, if you want to go with one of the chunky boys that are like 60mm or whatever that's fine too if you've got enough clearance.  

i would build my first custom loop soon and i am creating a list of things im gonna buy exluding tools i have a system with a 3080ti gaming x trio, r7 5800x, x570 a pro 32gb 3200 mhz trident z neo in a o11dynamix xl and i was thinking about buying this list of things and wanted to know if this was a ok configuration and i havent decided wich tubing im gonna use (hardline but idk wich brand) 

here my list of things i allready picked out: gpu https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-vector-trio-rtx-3080-3090-d-rgb-nickel-plexi https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-vector-trio-rtx-3080-3090-backplate-black cpu https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-velocity-d-rgb-amd-nickel-plexi pump reservoir https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-quantum-reflection-pc-o11d-xl-d5-pwm-d-rgb-plexi and fitting maybe these https://www.corsair.com/de/de/Kategorien/Produkte/Custom-Cooling/Fittings/hydro-x-fitting-config/p/CX-9052007-WW

@schmxtr - you haven't mentioned any radiators in your shopping list. I have 2 x O11D XL's and use 3 x 360mm rads in each. With the distro plate, you may be limited to two but don't hold me to that. I use a 45mm thick up top, and 30mm on both the side and bottom but I have traditional Singularity D5 pump/res combos, not distro/pump combos.

That distro plate butts up against the front glass panel, it won't interfere with using 3 rads unless they're some abnormal/weird size. Which is good because if you want to keep that 3080ti cool with low fan rpms... 3 rads will be a good decision. As for hardline tubing, I like corsairs lineup of tube and fittings personally.   Looking like a great build

Those lines will work just fine, just make sure the fittings you buy match the size of tubing.  I used 3 of these in my buddys build:

  Corsair Hydro X Series XR5 360mm Water Cooling Radiator https://a.co/d/3NGZOFV 

 

Pretty good bang for buck imo. If you want to only use 2 that's perfectly fine.  Just about every reputable brand has decent rads tho... do NOT buy aluminum, buy copper only, aluminum doesn't mix well with copper or Nickel components.

 

If this is your first time doing a custom loop or even just your first time doing hardline make sure you do alot of research of how to bend the tubing correctly.  90% of people's complaints of leaking or warped/melted tubing comes from lack of patience and practice.  Take your time and maybe get some extra tube to practice bends... if your budget allows. Also, you don't need to spend a fortune on tools, but having decent tools will make things go smoother... highly recommend getting a vacuum tester, just don't buy cheap chinese crap.
