Old-Man’s Velka 7 (no RGB, no nonsense)

First desktop since early 2000s - had a lot of fun with this build!
Wanted clean lines and a subtle look, and feel that the Velka 7 with 3060 Ti FE delivers that the black (with silver accents) I was looking for.
Did fan swap on Black Ridge CPU cooler with Noctua A9x14 chromax, and added the backplate from the NH-L9a mounting kit for better mounting pressure (also went with the NT-H2 thermal paste).
Undervolted both CPU and GPU so that temps max out at 70C and 73C respectively. Obviously some fan noise during prolonged gaming (3060 Ti FE is not that quiet) and when running benchmarks, but otherwise inaudible during day-to-day use. Highly recommend the this case to anyone looking to get into Small Form Factor PCs with a small footprint and good GPU length support.
