Ok, so I can officially confirm that overclocking with this case is possible and it does not require any liquid cooling whatsoever. My setup:
GTX1080 with blower type cooler (blows air out)
Arctic cooling PWM fan in front 12x25 (sucks air in)
Corsair SFX 600W gold PSU (blows air out)
i5 7600k with big shuriken 3 heatsink along with noctua a12x25 PWM fan (blows air out)
2x8 GB DDR4 RAM with OEM corsair heatsinks
Samsung 960 evo m2 nvme
Performed stress tests, none of the components went up more than 65 degrees celsius with a maximum overlock that mobo allows (1 profile for RAM and 4.6ghz for CPU).
Took me 2 years to finalize the build and find the best solution for airflow. If anyone knows any better options, please share.
Btw case is with the mesh in front and yes it is quite noisy, but since I always use headphones I don't really care. It is also worth to mention that the case sits in a small compartment within my desk, so the airflow around it is not perfect, but I am impressed with the temps. Also, there are no clearance issues or requirements to cut and so on.
