I like your no compromise setup :)
I'm going for the H60 to cool an intel CPU with an NF-A12x15 & think you've got the best GPU for the case.
If it's just for gaming I think another 2TB NVME might be a good alternative as currently there isn't much difference using PCIe 4 over 3

Thank you 👍,

Why the NF-A12x15 you don't think the NF-A12X25 will fit?

Yes it will be exclusively for gaming and maybe a little Unreal Engine 5 development,

I went for a nvme gen 4, to (hopefully) benefit from the GPUDirect Storage api in future games.

I considered the mjolnir but decided against it because im not going to pay that much money for a case for sheer aesthetics with bad thermal performance. Why not a cheaper case and invest in a better setup?

I wanted a sub 10 Litres SFF case to move around (once a month), that can be air cooled (CPU), and in the future when im no longer moving it, switch over AIO water cooling,

I wanted it to fit the RTX 2080, luckily the case was delayed, and i put my hands on a RTX 3080 😅

I had two choices, ether the Thorzone Mjolnir (350€), or the FormD T1(220€), it was very close, but finally picked the Mjolnir (for aesthetics, and the core mecanism) ,

So i tried to have the best air cooled components without going full oven , (Ryzen 7 5800x, RTX 3090) 🔥

The Asus rog has an I ssue with the pbo and curve optimizer be aware.
But if you disable you should be ok
The h60 should be good
I would suggest changing your fans to noctua for better noise levels

Hello Guys

I am thinking a build based on the same CPU : the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
with :
- mjolnir case
- Gigabyte B550I AORUS PRO AX
- Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x16 3600MHz C18
- case fan bequiet silent wing

GPU keeping my current rx 470 untill I can hopefully find a 2070 or a 3060.

What water cooling do you think I should use for the CPU?

Water cooling is limited to 120mm AIO. There is a spreadsheet of 120mm AIOs for Mjolnir. Several folks have used the Corsair H60/H60i coolers. Be sure that the pump block height is < 51mm. Avoid any coolers where the tubes exit vertically (perpendicular to the motherboard) such as the Arctic Liquid Freezer II, and any coolers with pumps mounted on the tubing, such as the BeQuiet Pure Loop. NZXT M22 fits, but folks report the tubing is difficult to route. CoolerMaster ML120 coolers should also fit.
