Now let's get down into the more interesting part.
Would have been nice to use SN750 with that heat spreader, I ended up fit in the EVO970 with the original EK heat-spreader. It's tight but will work if you remove one of the brackets off the heat-sink.
For the record, you can also mount a 2nd M.2 SSD at the back of this board, but I had no luck with mounting the SN-750 with that "fat heatsink". In my experience, these M.2 drives runs pretty hot these days, so not sure if I want to add the 2nd one without any cooling element.

Starting with some Team Group T-FORCE XCALIBUR rams
Personally I think these so good without the RGB lights
And then these is the Ryzen 3700X!
X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI
WD SN750 Black! I really like the beefy head spreader, so bad it's a bit too wide and won't fit into the X570i, I ended up using the 970 EVO instead.
Lastly there is a honorable mention on the 2060 Super FE
Long story short, I ended up returning the card as it turned out to be a water cooling nightmare, smh nVidia... I ended up get a GTX1660ti mini instead from Gigabyte, it's slower but got it for 50% of the cost I paid for the 2060EF, it's probably one the best nVidia card you can get for $300 unless you are looking at the 2nd hand market.

Let's start with a few pictures of the vanilla Evolv Shift, the rest is history.

[Build Log] Project 99 Mini-ITX Ryzen 3700X Custom Loop
Welcome! It's me again, time for a new journey - code name: Project 99
Intro & Objective
My goal for this build is create a super compact, yet nimble and deadly mini-ITX custom loop system equipped with the heart of AMD Ryzen 3700X, the body of Phantek Evolv Shift, and powered by the Team Group Memory and Seasonic Power Supply with a few surprises to come. I want to thank Team Group and Seasonic Power Supply for sponsoring this project!
My vision of the project is to show size isn't always the key factory when it comes to performance, you know what they say, sometimes, big thing come with smaller packages.
Before I get into the build-log, there’s one more thing… and that is the name #99 and where my inspiration came from.
Her name is 99!
Spoiler Alert, do it at your own risk
Below are list of the hardware I will be using for the project.
A warrior's spirit needs a warrior's body, now time to get to work to wake her up!
