I am Adi and like everyone I have SFF bug.
I have always a laptop user, but I need some more power and don't want to spend 2500 EUR on Blade 15 Adv.
I am planning on Ghost S1 build with 5600x and EVGA 3070 Ultra.
I need your suggestion on CPU air cooler and if this GPU will fit?
I am thinking of Blackridge with Noctua fans.
Has anyone build the similar build? and I am not adding any tophat to make it as small as possible.

There's only one cooler you should consider for the Ghost S1 and that's the Noctua L12 Ghost S1 Edition – the cooler the case was designed around.

Depending on your motherboard, you could also go with L12S and bend the heatpipes a bit or go for any other alternative; however, seeing that the L12 GE is just $55 and can be easily bought, I don't see why would you go for Black Ridge instead.

Regarding the GPU fitment - "EVGA 3070 Ultra" is not nearly precise enough. If you're thinking about the 08G-P5-3755-KR – it should fit just fine.
