HotBox

This is my first build here, but since builds.gg started I have gone through several stages of development. The case before this one was huge...
My childhood dream had come true (almost) in September 2018, when I bought the Lian Li PC-O11 Dynamic (by der8auer). The dream was to build in a Lian Li case... So the dream came almost true, because back in the days Lian Li only manufatured full aluminium cases and PC-O11DX has little aluminium in it - besides the narrow front panel, most of the aluminium weight wise was in the cooling section of the build (360mm AIO and FTW3 heavy rad).

Louqe Ghost S1 looks more like a Lian Li case (in fact it should be manufactured by Lian Li as far as I know), although it's still not full aluminium because of the steel "backbone" in the middle. I love the looks of this case and the challenge it poses in terms of building. It's definitely a case for advanced builder and not in terms of building - the building in it was a breeze. I assembled the whole system in 2 hours after sauna and some beers in the middle of the night. My homework of very good though. I watched every possible build guide and review of this case and chose components carefully. I was planning to build with my 7700k from PC-O11DX, but managed to sell it a week before the Ghost S1 came in.

But this build is still not complete... I am struggling with an idea of 240mm AIO with Noctua fans and no additional "tophat" to achieve sort of "no hood" style.
I don't know if I should do it and boost the 9700k to 5 GHz all core overclock?!
