Yes. It's a 1080p60. I want a high refresh 1440p ultra wide, but need to save for a couple months.

Yes, AIO fans should be intake in that case.

It's not truly SFF if it doesn't require cutting/modding of some component or another.

I also clicked the link to take a look. By the looks of things, he is replacing the 2 stock exhaust fans with the Noctua's and adding 2 fans to the front.

In this particular case, it has been demonstrated that leaving it as exhaust only is better for GPU thermals. Personally, I would replace the exhaust fans ONLY if you want something nicer looking. While the included fans aren't the greatest performers, they do well enough and the money can be used elsewhere. Leave the front open with no fans.

Great build.

BTW, with a top down cooler, you can safely remove the VRM heat sinks from the mother board and use that NH-L12.

Under load, is that single 140 rad enough?

I like the aesthetics, but those 3 downward facing fans are fighting your GPU for air. It would be better to run them as intake to feed your air into your GPU. This will result in a positive pressure build, but that should work better than currently configured.

Need more pics! How much clearance does that SF450 have for air, when the case is closed?

+1 Great build.

Question: would the radiator + fans fit behind the GPU at the back of the case, or will they only fit at the front, like you have it?

There is not a lot of exhaust in your system. I would add another fan behind the GPU.

OR, perhaps make the whole build with negative pressure, all exhaust. I'm very interested in your results.

+1 for the build. =)

Give us more pics! This deserves a Feature!

Also, how are temps when using only 1 radiator?

Great build that will last for years. +1

I only wish those B450 boards would drop. It would have made that 2600X that much better.

+1 for a job well done.

Personally, I'd consider going for a tower cooler in a case like that. It would be quieter and better at cooling, but the Cryorig C7 is more than enough for that Ryzen 3.

1: add grills if you are worried. It is a tight fight there, so I can understand your concern.... if a grill is too big, maybe you could use a coarse mesh screen to do the job.

2: if you look again at http://modivio.com/ there is a picture with cool air moving down and hot air getting pushed out of the sides. Right now, you are trapping some hot air inside of your case.

Love the build! I've looked at Modivio cases before.

Question for you: Why use the 80mm fans as intake? Wouldn't they be better as exhaust, to pull the hot air out of the case? Right now, those fans are pushing the heat from the GPU to the CPU, which may be a cause for the warmer CPU temps.

Question: How effective is the fan behind the GPU? You currently have set to intake, but the PSU exhausts into the same space that's it in-taking from. Doesn't that create a loop of hot air? You are the third person I've seen install that fan as an intake and I wonder how the thermals are vs. it as an exhaust.

Good build.

I would recommend turning your 2 front fans around as intake... Right now, all of your fans are exhausting.

Love the build.

Question: will a fan fit behind the motherboard, rather than inside the case? I'm curious if a custom loop is possible using 2 120 rads. There are some very small rads that may fit in the front 120 mount, the thickness is the only concern.

Love the build.

I'm surprised thermals aren't better on a 240 push/pull, but you have that monster of a gpu. All the air going into the case must get past that beast. It looks like those 80mm fans are currently exhaust; I would switch them to intake. Get some fresh air into your rad and see if that helps.

Your front RAD is choking. I love this case and this is an amazing build, but the airflow on the front rads must turn 90 degrees minimum before venting out/into the side. With so much work into this case, I would consider a front panel mod. Def a +1

Wow, so the airflow is reversed and goes from top to bottom. That makes cleaning filters real easy, and it makes the pictures make a lot more sense. Thanks for the reply!

It looks to me like your PSU is giving you a bad loop of hot air. If I'm not mistaken, it is currently pulling air from the front of the case and pushing it downward, then the big fan is pulling that hot air back into your case. If you could reverse the fan on your PSU, that should help with temps.

Also, as much as I love the current aesthetics, if you turn the CPU cooler so it pushes air up, it might generate less turbulence and give you better airflow (and temps).

I still love the build and you are so getting a +1 for this. =D

Looks good. The temps could be better... The case is designed for 2 intakes at the bottom, 2 exhaust at the front, 1 exhaust at the back. Still, I love this case and +1 for a very sensible build.

In this case, intake is supposed to be at the bottom, exhaust is supposed to be at the back AND front. Without buying anything, I would put your 2 fans at the bottom and check temps again. That should shave off some degrees.

Otherwise, love the look. =)

I like the looks, but I got to ask why the motherboard power cable isn't routed behind the tray. Is there not enough room for the sleeved cables? Otherwise, great build.
