I would definitely not recommend delidding a soldered IHS. 9900k is a bit much for a 120mm AIO. Though, I would try flipping all the fans to intake and leaving the 120mm aio as your only exhaust. You have three components fighting for air in a small box, w/ itx its almost always best to force as much air into them as you can.

Well I'm comparing pricing to the actual kit:

Comparing a single 8Gb Ram to dual Ram kit isn't comparing apples to apples as well. Nonetheless, like I said in the initial post, make an offer you are free to do so.

Over $900USD for a CPU and Motherboard alone. Yikes! That would be a hard pill to swallow.

More Pics Required! :P

Solid Bends for your first time. Would rather be a first time on a 1060 then an expensive 1080ti. Interesting loop order btw, I would definitely have gone with Res-CPU-Rad-GPU-Rad just to keep the loop simple.

Stellar Build! Would you recommend the PrimoChill rad? Been looking at them myself for a future build.

Even though the 7700k and 8700K share the same socket, older motherboards are not compatible. You must buy a newer board for it to be compatible with the Coffee Lake CPU's

If you are willing to embark on this journey, get the best LM and thermal paste you can afford. Thermal Grizzly's Conductonaut & Kryonaut would be my choice. You going to be spending 600$ on a chance, so be best not to cheap out on supplies.

Though I would suggest either going with an 8700k if you must have Intel or going with AMD's 2700x if you must have an 8 core. Both would most likely leave you with more thermal headroom.

Maybe if you De-lid, under volt, and use a cooler that fits in the case(the scythe shows to be 2mm over height). I'm an itx enthusiast, but I would highly suggest getting an itx case that allows better cooling options. Say an H200i or something similar.

Gotcha, I seen the stock cooler in the early set of photos and assumed. Though if the ribbon was limiting you on height and choking half of the cooler, that would have definitely pushed me to grab an APU. Not bashing you though, its a wonderful build and hope to see more.

Definitely get a +1 for such a unique build. Though I would have gone with the new Ryzen Apu's given the chance. Would have looked a bit better without the gpu and with a noctua NH-l9i would have definitely been a quieter choice.
