Recently built my first SFF build in this case and am loving it
Currently running a 5800X3D and 3080, but curious about possible upgrade paths in the future. I'd like to move to a newer CPU once 14th gen/Ryzen 8000 come out next year, but the thermal properties of Ryzen 7000 and 13th gen have me a bit concerned given that in certain workloads my 5800X3D will hit 90C even with an undervolt. Currently, I'm running the EK Basic 240 with 2x Phanteks T30s. I'm thinking that the high temps are due to the fact that the radiator is sucking in a lot of the GPU's hot exhaust, so its cooling capabilities are diminished. Would a custom loop improve system thermals overall, even with only a 240 rad? My GPU temps are currently excellent (~65C even at full load for extended periods), so I'm willing to compromise on GPU thermals to keep CPU thermals better.
