That thing is insanely cool, but I don't think dual 300w power bricks is reasonable, nor does it seem possible that tiny radiator could cool a 9900k and RTX 2080?

The GPU is an MXM module with a top-down heatsink and fan. That said, the side panel we saw was not vented.

This system is only water cooling the CPU in the photos last year the CPU and GPU were water cooled in a similar layout. those specs might have been a i7 8700k or 7700k and a 1080ti

EDIT: the final product will cover both (should have read sorry)

Note: I had terrible grades in high school physics. Wouldn't the radiator on top of a relatively small footprint tower create a very unstable PC?

Somehow I doubt good temps, even with the monoblock. That's just too much heat... :\

The fact that an STX Z370/Z390 motherboard with an i9-9900K and an MXM 2080 card exist is mind-blowing to me. I guess it has to if laptops are coming out with said components but... it just puts all of these massive three-fan, three-slot cards in an odd light. Such a card would basically fill the entirety of that case. It's certainly an audacious project.

I'd like to see how they do the monoblock for cpu and rtx2080, because the gtx1080 mxm was too long and interfered with the front I/O and Asrock includes longer standoffs (7mm vs 5 for shorter cards) for cards of that length, which means the card is not flat. I'm assuming the 2080 and 1080 are of the same length.

It has those small wing flaps on the side panels towards the back io area just like the Dan case. Lol

Gordon of PCworld said it was a 2080ti; is it true? o_o (or would a system be feasible?)

looks like its about 300mm tall by 110mm wide by 160mm deep based on the thickness of the rad.

Very interesting. 11 x 16 x 30cm would give you a 6L case, sounds fairly accurate.

I know it's not the final version but the window is a bit small. Looks very strange and it could at least extend to show the entire loop.

The power plug should also be at the bottom. Otherwise in many situations you would be reaching down the back and have to avoid bumping it, when plugging or unpluggin stuff.

Has to be a bit bigger than that. The rad is 45x124x157. I would guess it is closer to a 7 L case. But just a wild guess.

Edit: Somehow I missed that Alphacool makes a 45mm thick 92mm Rad, So it could be 100-110 mm wide.

It is a 92mm radiator, the fan is a Noctua NF-B9 Redux. With any thickness the Radiator will never be able to cool the CPU yet alone cool the whole loop once the GPU is included. A friend of mine and me have tested that, due to a project of our own.
It also can't be a 2080ti since there are no ti versions of mxm cards.
The lack of enough vents at the bottom will have it suffocate anyways...
Also having the pump of the system the highest component of the loop is very dangerous, as the pump will not work if it runs just a little dry (just like in the picture shown)
