Hi, I came from here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/V8Bbt6

Fantastic build, very space efficient and really good looking. Optimal selection of components, perfect for 1080p gaming, with that CPU and RAM I can only imagine the good FPS you are be getting, 90+ as you say on most games for sure.

Congrats on the air-cooling and the non-existent RGB.

The Noctua fits perfectly as long as you don't put a fan on top. The only thing that can give you problems is the graphics card, the power cables may hit the glass panel, I recommend you custom cables to avoid that.

I can't tell you much about the desk except that my mother bought it when I was a kid about 10 years ago at a local store, so I don't have much information about it.

Hi, I saw that you posted several comments and I could not answer before, I'm glad you liked my build, as soon as I get home I'll take some photos of the whole setup.

So you think I haven't tried without those two fans and I just put them in because they look nice? When I say I've tried every possible configuration it means just that.

Of course I am to blame, not the case. It's that damn 2080 that heats the inside of it. The NVME, a few millimeters from the GPU, protected by its own heatsink reaches 76 degrees, the motherboard reaches 46 degrees and the CPU 65. If I get to remove those fans, especially the one on top, the NVME reaches 85 degrees, the mobo reaches 56 degrees and the CPU that has to use hot air to cool itself reaches 76 degrees.

So for the moment those fans stay where they are.

I was thinking of doing exactly this, it's an excellent suggestion. I'll update the pictures if I finally do it.

You've probably already noticed that the CPU cooler fan is inside out. As you have it, that fan is moving hot air from the cooler into the chassis, although this is a valid configuration especially in push-pull double fan configurations, it is less effective than a classic config.

That fan placed the other way would be taking air from inside the chassis to refrigerate the cooler with that air, that is the recommended configuration if you use a single fan to cool the CPU.

I'm thinking about using this same chassis and that same CPU cooler, could you tell me what temperatures you're getting?
