So I "lucked out" last year and got a 3080 Vision OC which is 320mm x 126mm x 55mm. It's huge. All I want is to squeeze it into a FormD T1 but that won't happen.

I'm looking for a case that can fit this GPU, and also fit a 240mm AIO but stays around 10 liters, preferably under.
The smaller the better.

I'd appreciate any help!

does it fit in the formD T1 V1.2/V1.5?
Yes, for now

2021-04-17: lifted features from T1 EVO (aka V2.0), not sure to call it V1.2 or V1.5​



TLDR:
- Still less than 10L, either 9.8 or 9.95L, currently 135x220x335mm
- 46mm under the mobo for Radiator + Fan, 20.5mm TX240 radiator + *dual 25mm thick fans, 27 or 30mm thick radiator + *dual 15mm slim fans
- Support dual 240mm radiator setup, with 48mm CPU cooler height left for Pump & Res combo
- Will support both ROG 30XX and MSI Gaming X Trio 30XX, debating MSI Suprim X 30XX support, it's 13mm longer and will push volume over 10L
- Support 1.25, 1.50, 1.75, 2, 2.25, 2.50, 2.75, 3, 3.25 GPU Slots for more GPU vs CPU space allocation possibilities

How does it compare to T1 V1.1 *IMO
- This update is really for 3 kinds of people: 1) need to fit ROG 30XX , 2) need to fit MSI Gaming X Trio 30XX, 3) want dual 240 radiator setup.
- T1 V1.1 is overkill for most setups, so most don't need this update

Do you guys think there are cases that can fit this card and do simple air-cooling?

I have been tempted to buy that JIMU D+ case. It looks like a very nice clone.

what is your CPU? I would not recommend slapping a top-down cooler on anything hotter than a Ryzen 5800X/ Intel equivalent.

the JIMU D+ case is indeed very promising but only CN orders have been shipped, international orders are delayed so I'd say wait till then to get some 3rd party reviews / on-hand experience.

It's just a 5600x. I have it undervolted and overclocked but I can run at stock since I don't run anything too crazy.
