I have never attempted to watercool with a single 280mm rad, how effective would that be with a cpu and gpu?

Depends on the GPU but not very good tbh.

Plenty for most setups, you won't be able to keep your fans running at 500rpm under full load like some more extensive loops. But 1000-1200rpm on most decent fans coupled with a decent radiator would keep temperatures well within bounds for basically any single GPU/CPU loop.

280mm rads are enough, don't forget it is only ever so slightly smaller than a 360mm rad, but as said it depends on your setup also.

Well that thing would look really pretty sitting on my desk at work, it doesn't make any sense to go through the hassle of watercooling my work machine.... but it would look really pretty sitting on my desk tongue.gif

This also would work really well for a living room build if you're trying to do a "console" gaming thing. Looks cool to me. thumb.gif

I think it's great, might end up getting 2 or 3 of the itx version. Was going to get the glass matx evolv, but this footprint!

Both are ITX. The taller one just has more room for watercooling.

Yep, mispoke; meant the regular SHIFT. Sexy little things.
