    on the one hand I want the cpu heat out of the case and would try and mount the rad on the top - on the other hand the rad manufacturers recommend to put the rad at the front for better cpu cooling (cold air enters he rad). therefore the rad at the front isn't bad. I guess that the air from the rad going into the case will only raise the temp by a few degrees (I would expect the air/temp inside the case to be any more than 35ºC.

    I just did an internet search but the common general large auction site (Uk version) now doesn't seem to have any.

    I love those parts. Did you print them yourself? I really want to get into 3d printing when I 'retire'. If you did them yourself, which printer and software packages did you use?

    The results look fab.

    Yes, Using an Ender 3 Pro, which was given to me free along with a load of filament. models downloaded from Thingiverse then "sliced" ready for the printer using "cura" which is free.

    Ive done some headset holders too. I will have a go at creating my own models at some point, because i know AutoCAD i will probably start here first

    long story short, I had an issue with my 9900k, so I thought stuff it, I will give AMD a good go, So I bought a 3900X and a 5700XT.

    Just finished building this system, so here is a pic of how it looks the now.

    Looks a bit bare at the top without the 360mm rad lol

    Only issue I had was the USB 3 connector cannot fit :( this is because the two USB connections on the motherboard are right at the bottom, and this conflicts with the fans on the bottom of the case.

    So I will buy a USB c to USB b connector as my case has this on the front.

    I don't use the USB hardly ever but just in case, I will buy this adaptor.

    So I just picked up a Phanteks P300A as I was looking for a decent airflow midsize case for a fully ATX Motherboard and given how well the P400A has performed it was obviously worthwhile giving it a shot. Here it is here...

    I have to say it was a nice case to build in and also the airflow is actually fantastic on it. I've got my 3700X @ 1.3v which is sitting around 4.2Ghz solid when stressed and hits a max temp of 65c on the Low fan setting. My 5700XT 50th Anniversary (Back to that now) has seen some nice drops without any voltage changes or anything like that and tops out around 80-82c typically. Big drops all in from the 220T case which I was using before this and looks sooooo much better. £49.99 is an absolute steal for this case.

    Hadn't been connected to VPN, so these pics hadn't loaded for me previously.
    Really like the look of this build.
    What do you use it for?
