CPU: 3950x
MBO: AsRock x570-ITX/TB3 Phantom
RAM:
Trident-Z 32GB 3600MHz
GPU:
Reference card 2080ti (Asus Turbo if i remember correctly)
PSU:
Silverstone SF700
I'm moving from a fully water cooled Ncase M1 with a 9900K and the same 2080ti I'm using for this build
Moving to the X570 for PCI4 and i simply need more cores
Waiting to be implanted
Boiiii! Dat gonn be a lot of runs per 170 square mm 😂

Would the expanded GPU config allow fitting 2 full-sized watercooled 1080 Ti's alongside a D5?

i.e. is the following config possible?
- 1x CPU waterblock
- 2x waterblock for full-sized GPU
- 2x 280mm radiator

Here it goes now.

CPU: 3950x
MBO: Asus ROG Strix X570-I Gaming
RAM: GSkill Trident Z 32GB (2*16) 3600Mhz CL14 (I might change it for a 64GB (2*32) kit I have around, but timings suck)
GPU: Titan RTX
PSU: Corsair SF750

And obviously 2 280 rads

It might just drive me insane trying to connect the VRM blocks togehter.
I havent done the tubing yet since i want to see how much clearance i have in the case.
All of the VRM blocks are going to be daisy-chained together in a separate loop from the CPU and 2080ti.
Here it is with fittings... Crowded to say the least.

Yes, with hardtubing, its gonna be hard, imo 13OD softs are the best way. It depends on the size of the GPU waterblocks. I recommend to wait the case before buying the tubes and fittings. What type of burification pcb you want to use?

The design of this case makes sense, I’ve always wondered why we haven’t seen anyone sandwich 280s until now.

I’ve spent days looking for another case to build in but none of them make as much sense as this. It’s a fantastic combination of radiator volume and beautiful design. Love the efficiency!

So I’m planning:

CPU: 3900x (currently running a 3700x)
MB: Asrock X570 Phantom Mini
RAM: Corsair 32gb (not yet decided whether to upgrade to 64)
GPU: RTX 2080 super
PSU: Corsair SF600 Platinum

Liquid cooling parts on order but delayed. Hopefully another week or so 🤷‍♂️

Awesome design. Your website photo gallery shows a model that doesn't look like the ones available to order. The photos show adjustable slots that appear to allow for easy movement of the top and bottom panels. Is that just a prototype? I like that idea the most because it looks like you could just sell one model that could be used by anyone.

Thanks! Yes it was a prototype but the slots didn't work well, because we cant screw it down properly when the case closed. The current one is working like that, but there are a lot of holes in the inner side, so mounting is more stable, and fixed.

I see. After looking at the different configurations I can see the holes. So, the "base" model can be expanded top and bottom? I was a little confused by all the different models.

The base is the same in every case, the only differences are the distros, and the back IO panels height, to close the gaps when the case expanded. With the smallest distro/back IO you can expand all the way up, but the gaps will remain uncovered. Thats why you have the "covered" option in the configurator.
