I had more of a think on it and realized I could add a 240mm aio, and fairly easily, by virtue of using the matx board. This gave enough room to mount the rad next to the psu but with enough of a gap to allow air in from the expansion slots and from the 120mm case fan. So, I snagged a corsair h100i platinum on a prime day deal and installed it. Side benefit is that it also feeds a ton of air to the video card, and coolant temp is only about 5C above the case temp at full load (~40C) so the card runs cooler with lower fan rpms than before.

The system is overall quieter under load as the fans don't need to go much over 1500rpm to keep the cpu cool, where the noctua air cooler would ramp up under load and be fairly audible. It should have enough cooling capacity for the WX chips now, and also allowed me to mount my 2nd hdd back in it's original spot below the bd drive.

Hello everyone, glad to see this Club! Owner of the trusty old GD01 here. Small issue: the front panel USB/smartcard latch has stopped working, added a small video below.

No visible signs of damage. Is there a way to fix/replace this or I'd better start looking for a brand new case? Thank you.

Running Title "Synth Rider"

-The goal of this build was to make something powerful without any need for overclocking, virtual reality games are the prime use of this computer but I really wanted the flexibility to stream and do 3D modeling. Coming from an i5 7600k @ 4.6ghz / GTX 1080 I wanted a noticeable performance and multitasking capability.. powering virtual reality smoothly on most games and settings isnt an easy goal to achieve with a budget build especially when you are powering a valve index so I tried to weigh in being as budget conscious as I could be given the circumstances.-

I picked the GD09 for this build because its uncommon but conventional form factor as well as its payload capacity, giving me enough room to fit just about any component I want and cooling capacity for said components. The exterior design is done with wood adhesive wrap and gold vehicle pin striping I cut and formed to my liking, about 25$ in materials and ive got alot left over.. may end up clear coating for longevity and durability.

For ventilation I have the rear 2x 80mm & 1x 120 Fan as intake, 2x front 120mm as exhaust and run a hybrid cooling power to noise ratio.

In the cooling the department for components ive decided to keep it stock seeing as there are nominal returns for overclocking the ryzen chips and going that route would save me money on aftermarket cooling and premium overclocking board. My Temps (cpu) 35-72c / (gpu) 40-74c running a custom fan profile for ryzen and no overclock on the gpu.

Going on to power as a veteran builder I know not to cheap out with power supplies, Fortunately seasonic has a 650w sfx power supply that comes with a standard atx bracket giving me the versatility to use this in smaller build down the road and give me some much needed cable management room in this case. *Note I highly recommend getting extension cables if you use this power supply on full atx builds as the cables are sfx style length. Defiantly didn't save myself any money here but it was well spent.
