I have built a silent mini-ITX using 250D, to brace for the quarantine.
Aorus X570 I + Ryzen 5 3600 + Noctua NH-U9S + 2x16 GB Ballistix Sport LT (3200MHz CL16) + Sapphire Pulse RX 5700 XT + Asus ROG Thor 850W + stock fans
Silence is my priority. I will let CPU/GPU throttle if it comes to that.
I had the GPU, but one of its fans were making a rattling noise, and I'm waiting for the replacement now.
Everything was functioning pretty silent and pretty well otherwise. Still I wonder, should I get a 200mm Noctua NF-A20 PWM for the front intake? Will thermals/noise/performance improve?
I suspect that it might even get worse, because of the fan filter and that a 200mm fan has less static pressure.
Will it even fit? When I asked Noctua, they said it won't fit!

I'm using the 250D as a home theater / gaming PC.
ROG STRIX B360-i Gaming
Intel Core-i5 9600K
16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX
Corsair 650AX PS
EVGA GTX 1660 Super
I'm also putting the 5¼ drive bay to use with an older bluray drive for physical media.

Figured id post some pics of the work. The Asus GTX 1080 Strix just barely fit. My ram and the front fan had to come out. Cleaned up the cables quite a bit. Id love to get some proper sleeved cables but its just too much.
The card sits at 61 degrees while gaming at 1440p. It sits at 65 degrees while gaming on the 4k 75" tv it sits under. Great temps i think and the card is inaudible.

I'm building a 250D rig myself and my plan is to go with the EVGA RTX 2080 Ti XC (Not Ultra XC). I've checked the measurements and it should fit just fine. Sadly it seems like its the only 2080 ti card that will fit and its the ugliest.

This might be a duplicate question, but is there a list of GTX 1080 cards that fit the case. Im just about to upgrade from a MSI GTX 980.
I know there are specs on the case and cards but it seems there are exceptions to just going off the exact measurements.
I'm specifically looking at the following:
-MSI Gtx 1080 Gaming - Im pretty sure it fits and this is my first choice card
-Asus Gtx 1080 strix - confirmed above to fit!
-Gigabyte Gtx 1080 - I can seem to find anything on it

Just finished my new 250d build.
For anyone who is wondering the Asus 1080ti Strix does also fit into the 250d. You have to remove the shroud and reattach it inside the case, but it wasn't too complicated.
I am fairly certain that the RTX 2080/2080ti strix wont fit, as they are slightly thicker and there is only about 1-2mm of width left. Could maybe mod the side panel to make it work though!
