RVZ02B-W AIO Liquid Cooling Mod

Me? Using a real PC case? What happened?

I bought this case from someone on r/hardwareswap a little over a year ago. It was already a semi-complete modding project: the original owner had made some cuts in the GPU compartment wanting to mount a 140mm AIO in it. My 1080ti mini was too long for that, but I knew the 2700x I was using would probably be too hot for any air cooler I could fit it this case (58mm max CPU cooler height, the 2700x has a 130W TDP). So, I bought an H60 120mm AIO from someone else on reddit and made it fit with a dremel and some serious cable management. I've seen people do similar mods with the Node 202 so I was pretty confident this would work, and it did end up working out super well.

I don't remember what my temps were like with the 2700x, but the 3600 I'm using now idled at around 45 degrees (GPU idling at about 35). I want to say the 2700x idled at around 55, but I never wrote it down (sorry guys!). I took all my parts out yesterday because I'm planning on selling this case and building something more interesting, but it was a great case and a successful mod. I've used this build as a portable VR rig, and it was awesome to be able to take it all with me easily.
