I am downsizing my previous ATX build to the Formd T1. I have most of the components with me and need some advice on the remaining parts. Here are my parts so far;


Case

Formd T1

CPU

AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12 Cores - 3700 MHz - 105 watts

GPU

Colorful iGame GeForce RTX 3080 Advanced OC D6X 10GB

PSU

Corsair SF 750 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply

AIO

Cooler Master MasterLiquid LC240E RGB Close-Loop AIO CPU Liquid Cooler, 240mm Radiator


I am planning to water cool my CPU with a dual radiator and keep the GPU air-cooled. Any advice on the motherboard, RAM and the memory storage!

Also, any other comments are appreciated. This is my first itx build!

That card is 60mm thick in the spec. Supposedly, Colorful counts this thickness from outer surface of backplate to the tip of the fans (ie max stock thickness). T1 has (3-slot mode) 59.2mm allowance (counting from back of card pcb to side panel).
If we assume the thickness of the backplate plus the gap is about 3mm, then this leaves about 2mm clearance between fans and the T1 side panel. Physically it should be compatible. But acoustically, this might be too narrow and causes turbulence noise. Just beware.
