Welcome to the forum Dyang0307!

You will have to ask DS if they would do that.   
Makes it very difficult for DS to properly stress test and evaluate your system and flesh out any problems.   They can’t exactly evaluate your custom water blocks fit on your video card or it’s cooling function at load, can they.    That said, It’s just a coolant loop to a waterblock designed to fit your video card that you tell them you already own.   Just noticed you chose hard line tubing...not helpful...how do they size that to fit without your card?   BTW most leaks we hear about are with inflexible hard line tubing... recommend flex tubing, add quick disconnect fittings and a drain valve.

They could do this I think if you sent them your video card...not sure they will want to.    Lots can go wrong with doing things this way.

I have a 2080ti founder edition. If they can make this work I'll def buy this set up. If not I'll go a cheaper route.and thank you for the advice. I'll go flex tubing. This is my first water cooling set up so I don't know much so thank you

A couple comments on proposed build here. You have overkill on some things...that’s absolutely ok long as you are well aware of that and can afford it.   Plenty of us here do the same.

Not sure what you plan on doing with this rig, but for gaming 16gb RAM would be all you would really need.   Strong Asus Hero motherboard.

Don’t think you will want the noise suppression selection in a water cooled overclocked rig...Kinda counter productive....you chose excellent Corsair LL Series RGB fans and you should probably want maximum fan performance for best cooling of your overclocked CPU and GPU...not dialed down to quiet a rig.   Won’t be very noisy anyway with your GPU fan removed for a waterblock.

Be aware that if this is a gaming rig, and cash is tight...performance of the top 8-core i9-9900K CPU and the next best 8-core 8-thread
i7-9700K would be about even in gaming.   The main difference is Hyperthreading...the i9-9900k uses Hyperthreading to get 16 threads...something gaming doesn’t take advantage of...both will overclock very well.   Could save you a few bucks going with the also excellent i7-9700K CPU if you are only using this build for gaming.   

You also have more than enough power with the nice Corsair 1000w PSU...you would still have plenty of power using the 850w or 750w with just one RTX 2080 Ti FE.

Just some things to consider before ordering...

hello Dyang0307 and welcome to the forums.

As far as building a PC with your own card... your best bet is to contact [email protected] and ask him directly. He is the man who gets things done.

Way too many things to go wrong here IMHO. I think the custom liquid cooling is very expensive overkill to begin with. (Bias disclaimer.) This way to go about it for a first timer just seems a mountain too high. It's not maintenace free, you know, whereas an AOI is....

Whatever you decide about that, you should know if you get the 860 EVO here, you're paying nearly 3x what it costs on Amazon ($152).
