    Nice. Slimmest case I've seen. Apparently so slim GPU can only be mounted sideways with riser cables. I presume open side for cooling since no intake fans, just top exhausts.

    Very interesting in both design and uniqueness in the way he is using air cooling and added a push pull config like you would find in a liquid cooling setup.

    Can anyone share what PCI-e extender / cables were used for the GPU? Thanks!

    I would guess he used the one that comes with the case.

    Nice, I like that it's aircooled rather than water, something a little different.

    Love that we have an air cooled system featured.. and a beautifully crafted one at that.

    Nice work! Very deserving of ROTM

    Hi all, thanks for the feedback!

    The riser cable comes with the case, part# is Lian Li PW-PCI-E38-1.

    There are 3 intake fans modded to the posterior side. One 140mm pushing air behind the MB/CPU, and two 120mm behind the GPU. The front side is closed by a really nice tempered glass panel.

    In my experience, the best setup for temperature was when I turned the top fans around as intake for a full positive pressure setup. I also turned the CPU and PSU fan to pull - blowing air onto the glass panel. I used washers to raise the glass panel a little, and the air exhausts out the side of the raised glass.

    Best regards to everyone :)

    I too am glad to see an air cooled system win, but not just because of variety. For a while, it seemed like liquid cooling was almost a requirement to win. To me, it often says "hey, look how much money I have!" because these days, it's usually an unnecessary expense and risk.

    The way I see it, ROTM is more about originality, creativity, and effort rather than performance or expense. This month's winner is a good example of that (that's not to say it's a cheap or mediocre computer though).
