All liquid cooling mini-ITX case?

I see cases that will hold a full size GPU and still allow for a 240mm CPU radiator. What about removing a GPU fan/heatsink and replacing with a liquid cooling too? Will something like a Fractal Design Nano 2 work?

I would be using on a 1080P 2560x1050 ultrawide or possibly a regular 1080P TV so I was thinking an RX580 would be fine and offer more liquid cooling options. Then again a Vega 56 would work well but that's just even more money just for the GPU not even counting a liquid setup. I don't remember, was there a Vega 56 stock liquid option? I seem to only remember Founders edition.

I realize the Ryzen cooler is pretty good and undervolting the GPU seems to work well, but I'm trying for maximum silence and heat dissipation, it will be inside a small enclosed space not out in the open.

A Difine Nano S would work, but you can go much, much smaller as well.

Are you looking to go custom or with a CLC/AIO cooler?

Watercooling your gpu is possible as well.

But if you're going with AIO's, would you want to fit 2 240mm coolers or 2 120mm coolers?

An RX580 is fine for 1080p.

I did a water cooled NanoS, 7700K w/ TitanXp. 240 in the top, 280 in the front. Had to do some simple mods to get the 280 in the front and still get the fans under the dust screen, basically move the front of the case divider over about 1/2" and re-rivet.

Some details here:

Some details on the modified res I made so I could fill/bleed from the side port of the res:

I already use an AIO 240mm CPU cooler (H100i) for my CPU so I was thinking of using that for the Ryzen. If it's possible to use it for GPU then maybe a cheaper 120mm radiator for the Ryzen would work too. So to answer your question, 1 240mm and 1 120mm should work OK. Probably just get a Ryzen 5-2500.

FWIW, Space Madness is my favorite R&S episode.
