Believe it or not, this slim case holds a 1080ti and a water-cooled 2700x
The CPU side, with the exhaust hole I cut
Not the cleanest hole I've ever cut but it works well
Successful mod, fit both a 1080ti mini and a 120mm AIO in the GPU compartment. I took the dust filter off the Noctua so you can see better how tight of a fit it is.
As you can see, it's a very close fit (cable management for the GPU was kind of a bitch but what can ya do)
A before pic of the case, the guy I bought it from had already made some cuts trying to fit his 140mm AIO
Again not my cleanest cuts, but it holds well. The fan on the other side screw into the radiator on this side and holds them both in place.
A slim Noctua also fits on the GPU side. In this picture it's flipped around, but it pulls air into the radiator and the Corsair on the back pushes it out the exhaust hole in a pretty effective push-pull setup.
The CPU side of the case. The AIO lines stick out when the case is open, but they actually fit inside pretty well and don't bulge if you put the side on carefully.
Originally, this case had space for two 2.5" SSD drives, but with the big hole in it it only fits one. But I was still able to cram in my Corsair Commander to control my fans and lighting strips.

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.
