I don't ask about the thermal performance, but it looks sick! Good job!

Hi! From my experience I would go for Asus all the way, it delivers a very high quality products (I have built 6 PC's on Asus boards, no issues at all with hardware/software). Asus Z390i is handling easy my i9-9900k overclocked. With mini itx form factor you are more flexible when choosing a case. Good luck with your project!

Thanks mate! Actually it fits with a SFF PSU, you still have another 10 mm to psu.

I drilled the holes manually, I wasn't easy though.

Hi! All of them are Alphacool compression fitting (G1/4 to 11/8 mm).

It was easy, I bought two radiator mounting brackets from XSPC. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/xspc-120mm-universal-radiator-stand-wc-064-xs.html

Hey! You can use either Corsair software or Asus aura.

I absolutely love this case for how it looks, as you can see in my build list, I was playing with it for more than a year. The biggest problem is the heat dissipation, you can't really build a high performance pc in it. I have modified the case heavily on my way to a good performance/noise ratio, I was able to fit 3x120 mm radiators. After all this time I still think it is the best looking case on the market, but silent and cool operation is more important, that's why I switched to TT core P3. Great job +1 (because I know how challenging it is).

Great job!! It's nice when people are showing a bit of creativity, not limited to putting things together...

Wanna see the possibilities of this case in terms of water cooling? You can keep the 1080ti ice cold in the same loop with your cpu, all whisper quiet. Check this out: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/qFq48d

Thanks for comment. I didn't want to add any restriction to the airflow...

They offer good performance at low rpm, but the main reason is that they are coming from the previous case Phanteks Evolv Shift.

Not really... the only way to drop the temperatures is to take off the panel or to go for a liquid cooling solution like me :) Look at my second build to see the transformations.

My pc under load was CPU=60-65 GPU=70-80. To have a lower temp on GPU you have to take off the side panel. But having a strix with fans on front of GPU will throttle like crazy with case side panel on. And also be careful about the size of your graphics card, somebody was reporting installation problems with Strix. I have ended with a dual pump, 3x120mm rad custom loop. If you want a cool and relatively silent setup look here: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/66mqqs

Nice build! I will suggest you to add another 120mm radiator (15mm thick) where the top fan is, that will drop your temps. Have a look at my pc, it is not done yet but my cpu under load is running at 65 degrees (not delided) and gpu under 55. All the fans are set to exhaus the air from inside the case. Good luck!

I got a tiny reservoir integrated in the cpu block, which is enough to fill and bleed the loop. Also, regarding the parralel flow to gpu/cpu, I will agree when you're talking about a traditional loop, but here I got two blocks with pumps, gpu ~70 l/h and cpu ~100 l/h, even if they are not matching I will have a slightly higher flow to cpu, but I am able to decrease the pumping speed on cpu to match them. My understanding is that when the flow rate is not sufficient, you got excessive amount of heat which is not effectively transferred by the liquid to the radiator for dissipation. The total volume of my loop is ~300 ml. 70 l/h=1.16 l/min =》one full loop volume is recirculated in ~15 sec, or the water passes one radiator in 4-5 sec. I still got the fealling that I will benefit from parralel flow. I will give it a try, it is not that difficult to do and I will share the results here.

I have uploaded two photos of the front side without cover. As the radiator on the top side is not an usual thing for this case, I have made a couple of additional mounting holes and they are shifted to the right with about 1cm comparing with the standard mounting holes for 120mm fan. So the radiators are mounted with 5mm screws and the fans with anti-vibration silicon mounts.

But be careful, it will add some airflow restriction.

It's just an average dust filter, nothing special.

Nice job with that holes in the front panel. Do you think it is possible to do the same with a simple drill with drill bit hole saw? I'm planning something nice in my Shift and extra air flow will be very appropriate.

It is an acrylic side panel painted with black spray paint and it looks like original Phanteks glass panel. If you are careful enough it is not difficult to drill acrylic sheet. Talking about temps, there is no difference for my GTX 1080ti with blower style fan, but I reckon for aftermarket GPU cooler (I mean frontal air intake) that will make some difference. To be honest, even in this tiny case my temps under load do not exceed 80 degrees, which is acceptable for reference design GPU.

By the way, be careful when choosing the gpu due to size issue. If you're planning to go for air cooling, blower style is your option. Good luck!

Hi Tao,

There is not enough space between motherboard and case fan. You can buy a 140x15mm fan + phanteks halo. Also there is no RGB controller included, I am using RGB header on my Asus Strix Z270i. Any questions, please ask!

Cheers!

But aesthetics... are there phanteks halos rgb frames on case fans? I would rather buy a decent CPU air cooler or an average AIO and a rgb strip than rgb frames. But it is your choice, I respect it!

Nice try overall. I thought my temps are pretty high with this case, but looking at yours mine is damn cool :) The blower fan on my reference GTX 1080ti does the job, I got 70 degrees under load (80% TDP).

Yeah, because about 80% of Shift builds have the same parts, there is not much to change basically...
