Agree regarding the case, there seems to be a distinct lack of options for MATX form factor these days.

Thank you kindly. My one gripe is that I should have stuck with the Corsair LL120 RGB fans!

Neat build, you got a super deal on the Fractal Design Define R6 :)

Likewise, speaking of an upgrade, I like the look of your 2080 RTX..... I've always found EVGA cards to be reliable.

Thanks buddy. Most of the water cooling items were bought from Bykski Pro Store - https://pro2mod.aliexpress.com/store/3002061?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000002.2.16fc4da5raa7Jf. They often do promotions, so at times it is possible to save even more.

Even though the case is super tall, there is very little room to route cables via the side panels. It was also very tight because of all the water cooling gear. Mind you, I dread to think what the thermals would have been like with air cooling!

Thank you very much. I think the only way to lower the temperatures is to ensure that the front radiator does not suffer from poor airflow. I had another ITX build with a single 240mm radiator (45mm thickness), which had better temps...

From one Shift X owner to another, I feel your pain. Love the build, especially the monoblock :).

Actually I was thinking about modding the front panel, however the temps were actually not too bad when gaming (main purpose for my PC). So in the end I did not go ahead with any mods.

Apologies but I've since sold the case, however I think the front panel is aluminium. Just to make sure, it might be worth e-mailing Metallic Gear and asking them?

The custom loop worked really well, but I needed something bigger for more drives, expansion etc. In my opinion the case is very good, especially for the price. The only problem that I encountered was clearance for the rear panel, with all the cables in place it is a tight squeeze.

Best of luck with your new build :)

Sorry for the late response. There is not a huge amount of clearance, a couple of centimetres, but that's enough.

You will be able to fit the Be Quiet Dark Rock cooler no problem along with the GPU of your choice. It would probably be far tighter in the ITX version, but some skilled installers have managed :).

Thank you. I completely agree with you regarding the NZXT cases, very good build quality too. +1 for Team Vulcan :)

The rest of the build is very quiet, hence the possible replacement. I've got my eye on the A4 Dan Case, which a blower style card would be suitable for. I'll just have to relegate it out of the office! Vaild point though.

I feel your pain, but I think this is just an awesome build. Never would have thought about the dual reservoirs mounted on the top of the case. Were you nervous drilling out the holes ;0.

Good question. I had some spare from previous custom loop builds and just wanted to make use of them. Plus they fit the colour scheme :).

Nice build and good choice of GPU for 1440p.

I also still have a Corsair 1200AX - As a reviewer on Amazon once said, these things never die ;0.

Maybe some braided cables would help with the cable management (if funds permit).

Does that RTX 2070 Graphics take up three PCI-E slots?
