might i suggest v1 tech for the backplate. they use magnets to attach to the screws and look quite good, they even do rgb versions which come some short light strip and a remote, or you can hook it up to a 5v rgb header?

ive been thinking about a getting a backplate, but im either gonna switch out to a 980ti or a 1070 in the coming months, but thanks for the suggestion!

Hi, very nice build you’ve got there. I was thinking of building something very similar. Did you use a reservoir/pump combo? Do you have any part of the watercooling system in the back section of the case? Is the PC quiet or noisy? Thanks

Everything is in the front, yes it has a DDC/pump combo setup. i redid it and now have 2 radiators and 6 fans(2x 80mm rear, 2x120mm bottom, 2x120mm top), its extremely quiet with my custom fan curve.

was there any GPUs clearance issue?

the waterblock is a VERY tight fit, i actually spaced out the side panel just a bit with some washers to get it to close. a FE card w/ a cooler will have no problems. my old strix 1070 fit with air cooler but was also very tight and wouldnt fit with a gpu block.

Ah, I see. So maybe the extended PCB on some graphics card with enormous cooler height has clearance issues with the side glass panel. I heard even if you manage to put one in, it will push very hard against the glass to the point where the PCB is bent (on bitwits mini silver build fitting zotac mini 1080ti) Do you think the EVGA single fan blowers will fit in? Im currently planning to put a 1070ti blower inside.

sorry for the late response, i just saw this, i ripped my q37 build apart a few months ago for an upgrade and then things came up. im just now getting around to ordering parts for it again, will update once i have it back together :)
