I have a friend who is DEAD set on building in this case. I have tried numerous times to sway his mind but have come up unsuccessful every time. He will be playing League of Legends and CS:GO exclusively with the occasional streaming of videos. Money isn't really a concern...but he wants it to be more than capable of performing flawlessly at max settings at 1440p... just not "too too" overkill. He is big on aesthetics and wants it to be red and black yawn, just not a full loop since it is his first computer. I was thinking about a reference 980 since the air flow is somewhat limited, especially in front of the card.

If you could put a parts list together that would be greatly appreciated. I know enough to get a decent build going, just not enough for such a difficult layout. He doesn't care if it's Invidia or AMD.

Not sure if "too too" overkill, but I tried. I hope this is the case http://www.amazon.com/Lian-Li-PC-O5SX-Aluminum-Wall-Mountable/dp/B00UPIB2PO as it is what I based this on.

Also video of the case https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwQUdXBWqTw

Thanks man. I will show both of these to him and explain everything. Same question though, wont the aftermarket coolers on the Ti pose a problem?

It shouldn't as the the case has a lot of ventilation on the sides, The 140MM fan I added to go in the back should be used to push more cold air into the case. With no 3.5 cage to make room for the bigger card, this added space gives more air flow as well. Besides the taking up of room in the case a HDD can add unneeded heat so SSD's only, one for the OS/one for games & documents. In my mind it should work out fine. If not there is always full out water cooling everything for more $$$.

Closest Case on PCPP that looks close to (maybe exactly) same: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/lian-li-case-pco6sx

That's the bigger mATX version. The one in question is mini itx, similar restrictions to the Silverstone rvz01 but a bit less CPU Clarence. However you can install AIOs which you would pretty much have to for either overclocking and or aesthetics.

Yeah, just found that; looks like 4 different versions. Nice looking but very limiting for GPU, it seems.

Yeah about 7.5 inches from memory. I was interested in them a while a ago but the price is a joke so I moved on lol

R9 Nano? lol

He won't fit a 980 in that case. Using the MicroATX version of it, none of the current GPU fit inside there.

it would have to be the mini ITX 970s for max performance. or as I jested the R9 Nano..

"Money isn't a problem" Also, I saw that you can remove the drive bay on the right hand side which gives you enough room for a full size gpu. The drives would just have to be moved to the back which is fine. There is ONE build on here using this case.

He is using a gtx 970 here.
