I'll keep the original fan on the ENP 7660b, reverse it, and see how it fares first. The Noctua fans don't have enough airflow to safely cool a full 600 watt draw. While my current system doesn't pull that many watts, I want to plan ahead (and not shorten the life of my PSU).
You're right, it's best not to replace Noctua fans.

I am in love with this case. I would hop on this right now if I could get a hold of a sub 213mm rtx 3060 ti or 3070. Can't wait to see the finished product.
It's a leap of faith. I'm skipping this gen and only hope that a <220 mm **70 class card exists in the future.

I can recommend two graphics card models to you.
ASUS DUAL GeForce RTX 3060 Ti MINI 8GB GDDR6
EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti XC GAMING
Both of these cards are about 20cm in length and I don't know if they are available for purchase in your area.

You can look for these two graphics cards in your country, and you can probably buy them. They are both around 20cm.

I have a 2070 ITX that is still serving me well. I won't start looking for an upgrade until the 4070/4060ti (or similar AMD offering).

At that point in time, I can only hope that high end GPUs still exist in this form factor. With so many main-stream ITX cases being released, I'm fairly confident there will be options.

You are right, rtx2070 can currently cope with most of the situation, and because of the virtual currency reason graphics card selling price becomes very expensive.
Hopefully, when the RTX4070 is released the price of the graphics card will become normal.

I think that a lot of gpu vendors really want to market to the hardcore RGB and max performance cooling solutions out there. I might be wrong. We've seen Dan create his own heatsink and Loque pushing Noctua to re-release their nh-l12.

This lack of GPU stock and the crypto craze is just impossible for new pc builds.

@COOJ What is the difference from your 7660b? I saw in the site that it has the modular retrofit. Does that make it longer than the standard 7660b?

The 7660b module will look like this after modification, and comes with a black matching cable.
The original length of the 7660b is 150mm (without the cable), after modification the length is around 170mm.
I will buy the PSU from Enhance China distributor and then give it to a professional for modularization.
