Just built my first system in the new air version of the case. It's working OK but get's a little warm (unsurprisingly).

AMD Ryzen 3950x
EBGA RTX 2070 Super XC Ultra Black GPU

32GB Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB RAM
Asus ROG Strix X570-I Gaming ITX Motherboard
Corsair H801 V2 AIO
2 x NEXT Hue LED strips
1 x Samsung 850 Evo 250GB NVME SSD
1 x Samsung 860 Evo 500GB SATA SSD
1 x Samsung 860 QVO 2TB SATA SSD
Seasonic SGX 650W PSU

I'm really pleased with it. but I have a couple of issues. The GPU power cables are right up against the PSU. I might end up changing it for a shorted PSU however the smallest SFX PSU is still 10cm long so it will only clear one of the two PCI-E power connectors fully, it will still block the second. I saw these on ModDIY but when speaking to them about the cables it seems the low profile side is in the PSU end, not the GPU side so they are no good. The 2070 Super I have is a 6 pin and 8 pin card.

The other issues is the heat. Now I wasn't expecting completely chilly temps considering it's a 3950x but I was hoping for a bit less than the standard temps I'm seeing around 62c. Under loads I have seen peaks of 90c but it settles around 85c. a few degrees less than I was seeing before I changed the TIM for some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaught. I'm not sure what else I can do to reduce the temps without underclocking it.
