    Brickless S4M 1080 Ti 8700k Advice

    Hello, long time lurker but first time poster... Finally made an account today. When I first saw the S4 I immediately fell in love.

    This will be (another) attempt to squeeze both a GTX1080 and a 8700k into a brickless Skyreach S4 Mini - inspired by @JarrettP 's solution using two separate power supplies, but going for a passively cooled combo of a HDPLEX 160W for the motherboard, and a 200W Mean Well PSU to power the...

    What cases are you using? No GPU Build with 110mm tall heatsink

    Title pretty much says it all - what are you using? I'm think I'm going to go with the Noctua D9L to cool an 8700k, but so far haven't been able to find a case that will fit a heatsink of it's size that doesn't leave space for a GPU - even though its not a 'big' heatsink as such.
