Thanks, that was the easiest place to put it to be honest lol

Yes, you can remove the LED strip easily. The black aluminum piece screws off where you can remove the strip (it's stickied on).

I've seen a great build where they did the false wall for the cleaner look! I wish I had the tools and time to do it, it's definitely a big improvement visually. I've already got my sights on my next build, so I don't think I'll be doing it on this one.

Yeah, the fittings are touching the fans. You have to remove the fans to get the fittings off (since they screw on/off).

I've got an inch or more between the bottom fans on the radiator to the mobo, it's an ITX mobo. This is a MicroATX case, you couldn't run a MicroATX mobo with the bottom radiator and fans. You could run this with a single 280 rad, but it may get a little warmer (or run fans faster/louder).

Yeah, it's crammed in there. Had to grind down parts of the front fans to fit.

Thanks! It's the second one I know with a custom loop. Definitely cramped, but I love the look!

Best of luck! It was rough just getting 2 rads in there!

I'd go with X1 since you're using EVGA. That's what I'm using on my FE card. Mine got up to +1250MHz memory and +145MHz core clock. You should be able to get more if your power can go over 124%! I'm on a custom water-cooling loop though.

Loving my 2080 too! It overclocks like crazy! Digging the looks too. Clean build!

Yeah, I ordered it that Friday after the 2080 released. Glad to have gotten it so soon! They've had them on pre-order for a while before launch I presume.

Thanks! It's definitely far from perfect. The guys on YouTube make it looks so easy! But I'm very happy with it.

The Samsung EVOs are great. I always run an M.2 for the OS and put everything else on the other SSDs to allow for better performance when it comes to multitasking. I would definitely recommend them!

I have already. Let me dig up the results!

Thanks! I noticed not too many people use this case, but idk why. It's great to work with!

Yes, I will need to get a picture of the backside! Thanks!

Added some pictures for reference on temps. It's not too bad considering all that is being cooled.

I have no issue with the front intake on mine. I get good airflow, it's definitely a problem up top since you're trying to blow hot air out and the glass traps it. I have my PC on a shelf above my monitors so I just took off the top glass since you can't see it. Definitely a 5-8C difference when you have your CLC venting up top. This case has to be one of the best ITX cases for radiator support (reasonably priced, or I'd say the Lian-Li) and layout. It's hard to find one that can support two 280mm rads.

I had to delid my 8086k. It was thermal throttling at 5.0ghz on all cores in Prime95. After delid it's max 80C at 5.2Ghz at 1.395V on a CLC. It can get up to 5.3Ghz at 1.435V, but I want to keep it under 1.4V. I'll probably end up getting the 9th gen too. I chose the 2080 because comparing new 1080ti it was a slight bump for a slight performance increase and Ray tracing later on. I'll probably upgrade to the 2080ti once the price settles if I need more performance.
