+1 Nice job! This is good inspiration for my build. Imma be doing a similar one with Ryzen. Looks really good. Maybe you can add the tempered glass panel from NCASE: https://www.sfflab.com/collections/parts/products/ncase_m1-window-panel. Really awesome, seeing other people do it. Is there anything that went wrong with it or something that you weren't expecting? Just wondering for my build. (づ◔ ͜ʖ◔)づ

Thanks alot man, as far as wrong nothing too major I think i had a issue on the custom cables being flipped the wrong way on the 'shorty cables' from ensourced. - Thermally I was never really satisfied the l9i isnt much better than a stock cooler - I would really recommend getting the biggest cooler you can fit like a noctua d9l & I know its impossible to be picky these days but a blower style card is a major plus, I later switched to a evga 1080 ti sc black and my whole pc ran much hotter and louder so much so that im actually in the process of switching to micro atx case just so im not so limited on cooling solutions - I usually game for long hours and having the heater on my desk was driving me crazy lol

that is interesting. Might I suggest running a dual 120mm fan intake on the bottom of the case to run tat super clocked and switching the cooler for a Noctua D9L, your system will more than likely run cooler with that. My older brother has the going in his M1 build and he was able to run a stable 2125MHz clock on a SC2 Elite (Blue) 1080ti and a 5.2Ghz overclock on his 7700k at 1.42 volts and he has not seen any temps above 80 on the CPU and 83 on the GPU, and his system is a manageable 443 Decibels under full load.

Wow those are impressive, do you guys live in alaska by chance ? lol all jokes aside I might just be unlucky - i sent my first 7700k back due to temps and even on my new one I end up running 80-85 w/o a overclock when gaming, but im sure that d9l makes a big difference - as far as fans underneath i don't have actual metrics but it caused a lot of turbulence especially as intake and slightly less as exhaust, my ears were happier just removing them all together

if CPU temps are what is driving you nuts then would look at the d9l because it will most likely help drop temps on the CPU as a whole by about 7-9 degrees, however if the fan curve is a adjusted you may see even more of a drop in the range of 9-15 degrees under full load on your CPU. If you are not bothered by GPU temps then just stick without the bottom intake then, but definitely go with a new cooler if you can.

Nice! I've been wanting to take a stab at an mini ITX build. This case looks fantastic.

The cables are a nightmare with that PSU. If you have the PSU fan on the inside it looks worse, but the cable runs are a lot better. Flip it around with the fan out like you have and like it's supposed to be, and there is a terrible twist in any full cable, or you do what you did and have the shorty popping out through the front.

I'll echo what others have said. The D9L and a delid will help your temperatures dramatically. IDK how you live with the blower card though. I had one at first but eventually went with a dual fan EVGA card with intake fans on the bottom and now my system is whisper quiet under any conditions. It increased internal temps by 7c average, but I'm at 5.2 @ 1.4v sitting at like 83c on CPU and 76c on GPU so we're still gucci.

hey man late to your comment but thanks for the info ! I checked out your build i think I've seen it before on reddit before but VERY NICE ! clean all around. I actually sold my M1 recently and im giving a micro atx build a run because it has more cooling options want to give that beefy nh-d15 a world

PC and Desk look great. You should add a pic of the whole setup!
