Hi All,

Please check/critique my build for compatibility. A few questions:
  • AIO - Should the x52 be side mounted and if so should it be intake or exhaust?
  • Fans - Looking for some 120mm fans to put at the bottom like Optimum Tech - any suggestions? Should these be exhaust or intake as I assume the GPU fans are exhaust?
  • PSU - I couldnt find a SFX PSU with anymore that 650w - will this be enough?
  • Do I need any other fans i.e top mounted?

This all looks good to me. I'm not sure about the specific cooler location questions (besides that I think the only place a 240 mm rad will fit is on the side panel), but I do want to reassure you that a 650 W PSU will be overkill, if anything. For that build I'd probably go with the Corsair SF450 platinum, or the SF600 platinum if you ever see yourself upgrading to a more power-hungry GPU. It'll be more efficient and only slightly more expensive than that SeaSonic unit if you go with the SF600.

I second the Corsair SF600. The shorter SFX PSU will make life easier than the Seasonic SFX-L.

600w is plenty even for 9900K and 2080Ti.
