Very space efficient. this Design looks similar to mine.

Yep, seen your designs, very nice!

I think your type of sandwich can be super optimal (because the mobo can be squished to the max), but my case is closer to the classic sandwich layout (except for the inverted GPU facing backplate outwards), therefore there is some access to the motherboard.

Small update:

Installed the Aliexpress waterblock, the results are not that impressive: it looks good and has RGB, but the idle temperatures got 4-5 degrees worse and I can't pass Prime95 without throttling anymore (so full sustained load temps are over 98 for some cores). So the block has to go and I have to come up with some alternatives (unless maybe there is some air still in the block and it will improve with time).



The GPU-230 from Koolance looks very similar. If there is something wrong with the Aliexpress Unit you could try this one, or I could send you mine.
