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.
