This build replaces my previous Meshify C 1950x Threadripper build. After using that build for almost two years, I realized what I had was overkill from my workload. I didn't need SLI or expandability. 16-core worked fine but I was begging for better single core performance, since most of the CAD work runs on single or dual core most of the time. All the bing bling of hardline loops got less interesting after a while.
For this new build, I wanted to downsize because I didn't need the expandability and it would also be nice to take up less space and more portable. I was hoping Fractal did a Meshify Nano-S, that would have been perfect, but I chose the Ncase M1 because it's the only other m-ITX case that can do dual 240mm rads and hold a m-DTX board. I was eyeing the Crosshair Impact since Computex. The Ncase has an aluminum industrial look, so I wanted the PC to look like a machine rather than computer. This mean giving up PETG hard tubing and going w/ EPDM tubing, for that industrial look. I used the Iceman res/ddc pump combo, because that "attached" on look fitted in with the scheme. So no more pretty tubes, TG, or special lighting(there are some). I kept the ML120 RGB, but will replace them with the NA-AF15x25 when it comes out in black this year. Otherwise, this build looks like it's all business all the time.
Loop configuration: Reservoir/DDC Pump --> 240 Side Rad --> CPU --> 240 Bottom Rad --> GPU.
