    How's the pump noise, though? My mini-itx case had room for a darkrock 4 and that'll cool 200W. Good enough for a 3950X.

    there's a light noise of the liquid getting moving when i turn it on, but it's quiet by the time i'm booted to the desktop. I've got an EVGA CLC240

    I am also somewhat thinking I might just take my current Mid Tower. I'll just need to find a way to replace the glass side panel. Plus see if I can swap in that M.2 SSD in place of the smaller SSD that is in it currently. Then I'll just need to worry about upgrades, no a whole build. Since I can always pull it out of the cab when I am on home time. Dunno for sure 100%

    That memory speed is gonna hold you back. Ryzen really likes above 3200mhz to get the full potential

    Nice, I'd looked at a similar Case. I know on my above build it is a bit overboard on that mini case. Probably could have saved about 100+ going with something cheaper. Liked it's rugged, and also has that "handle" spot on top to carry it out of the cab if I need.
     
    Dieselboss Thanks this.

    You should do the SSD M.2. 2TB. Only about 50.00 more.

    Anyone played HBS's Battletech?

    That's a neat case actually. Not cheap, but cool.
