Hi everybody,

I´m glad that I´ve found this board to discuss my project which I planned the last weeks.

The Parts that I already own:

NCase M1 v5
Asrock Fatal1ty x370 itx/ac
Ryzen 1700
EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black

Basically what I want to do is watercool the rig with two radiators, currently I´m looking for XSPC TX240 with 25mm Fans as bottom radiator and don´t know which one I should take on the side.
Which one would you guys suggest?
Is there a huge difference between slim and normal radiators on the side bracket?
Is there a better solution than the TX240?
I thought a slimmer radiator with better fans will cool better than a thicker one with 15mm fans, is that assumption correct?
What are your generell suggested radiator for cooling an Ryzen 1700 and a GTX 1080 TI in the NCASE?
Futhermore I asking myself if I should go with the Apogee 2 or the Alphacool Eisbaer LT (Solo) as pump?

As you can see there are a lot of questionmarks in my head.

Of course I´m not planing to break any worldrecords with the 2x240mm rads but I think it should be possible to get the system much cooler and the noiselevel down :-)

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards Verizon
