I know this is an old thread, but I started planning my next build a couple months ago and the only thing I had already decided on at the time was that I wanted it to be a mini-ITX build using the Core V1 case, which I'd already procured. Around the same time, I was experimenting with delid and my first custom liquid cooling loop in order to get my current system (4790K) to 5ghz, which was a great success. This ultimately led me to the decision that my next system (which would be Coffee Lake) would also be delidded and custom liquid, so naturally I thought to search for a 200mm x 200mm radiator and see if it would be plausible to pair with the Core V1 case. I was only able to find one 200mm x 200mm radiator (the phobya), and only one instance of someone pairing it with this particular case - which was right here on your thread. I have already modified my case and planned/situated the cooling system, so I am now just waiting (impatiently, lol) for the mobo/cpu when Coffee Lake becomes available.
Anyway, it's obvious that you spent considerable time on the case mod planning and implementation, and from reading your posts I would venture to guess you probably spent even more time capturing and relaying the information/experiment to the members here. I can tell you are very thoughtful and meticulous, and I just wanted to say that I really appreciate all of this. This is the first time I've stopped to write anything or make my presence known on this thread, but I've accessed it many, many times throughout my research and planning, and it was incredibly helpful. Without this thread, I probably would have never even risked purchasing the radiator for fear that it wouldn't be feasible.
Thank you for all the time you invested on this.
