Hi all!

I'd like to do a build with an NCASE M1 with the tempered glass side panel. I wanted to have a 3080 and a 5900X in a custom loop. I recently watched Ali's video where he put an undervolted 3090 and Ryzen 9 5950X with a EKWB 240mm radiator with slim Noctua fans into a FormD T1. He mentioned that there were some issues with the thermal performance, and so I was wondering: would an undervolted 3080 and 5900X with a 240mm rad and slim fans work in a NCASE M1? I wouldn't really mind if the temperatures are warmer than usual for a water-cooled system, as long as it's not throttling. I figured that something like that with an Iceman res and a good pump in the NCASE might work since the TDP of an undervolted 3080 + 5900X should be lower than that of Ali's build. Does anybody have any experience with doing something like this, are there any alternatives you guys could think of that are better than this?

The video I was referencing can be found here.

Thank you for your time and help,
