Well, judging from your previous build, the final product will be awesome and look significantly better than my attempts!

One thing I forgot to mention – the build I posted is the only one I've found that has a radiator in the front and on the side. You can't do it with the standard configuration; I had to flip the side radiator bracket so the fan mounts were on the side closest to the motherboard. As you can probably see, this creates issues with routing cables through there, as they are very close to the fans.

This may also be the first Enthoo Elite build to have been posted online that uses a Mini-ITX motherboard in the main motherboard area I have yet to upgrade my core hardware since my NCASE M1 days... it'll happen soon...™.

That being said, the issue with cable management will only get worse with a bigger board, as I won't be able to route the motherboard and CPU cables through the motherboard cutout. I'll climb that wall when I get to it though!

Thanks! I decided not to do rigid tubing this time around and went the the stealthier black ZMT tubing which is a delight to work with. I was thinking of doing other rad configs, but this one allows shorter tube runs and looks cleaner to me. Getting closer to a final look, hopefully this weekend! That ITX must look so tiny in the main mobo spot in this case.

Wondering if any Elite owners here has vertically mounted two GPUs? If so, did you have to use a Phanteks branded PCIe riser cable? Are all premium riser cables the same as far as their mounting goes? When comparing the Phanteks premium to other brands, it looks a little different. I ask because they're impossible to find in stock and want to make sure I can order any premium riser (3M, TT, etc) and that it will install properly in the vertical mounting cage.

I am debating between this or the Corsair 1000D. Would love to hear your opinion on which one you would choose

I don't know quality build of Phanteks cases, especially this one, but I know for sure, Corsairs 900D and this 1000D series cases quality is poor, at least to my liking, very thin skin, the construction wobbles so its not the most sturdy case.

Phanteks Elite is infitiely better built then any Corsiar case .. like the difference between a Rolls Royce and a Yugo.

Does anyone know if Phanteks has ceased production of this case? Doesn't seem to be in stock anywhere.

Disregard. Direct messaged them on Facebook and they promptly responded to say there's more coming in May.

Not talking about the build quality of those two case, I think the 1000D and the Elite serve different purpose, and two very different WC path.
On my side, I have chosen the 1000D, mainly because I'll have a mini itx and a Eatx setup, and I can drop enough radiator inside while still getting fresh air moving in without going through a radiator (because of the dual line of fans you can put on the front)
So two very very different tower, if you don't need dual setup, and money is not an object, I think the Elite is of better quality overall.

Starting to get somewhere happy with my build, still finishing wiring and led layout, some wires still showing. Added a Commander Pro to the mix, keeps my fans nicely humming off water temp. No more rpm spikes! Couldn't help but add their addressable LEDs to the mix for some fun. This case really is a pleasure to work with. Playing with more LED profiles now that I have a hang of iCue. Might get new pcie and 24 pin cables, I can't get these cablemods to straighten out. 80% there, enough to finally post a pic or two.
