Ignoring Dimensions to the Extreme!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A friend of mine just completed a build I specced for him. As soon as I saw the ASRock Phantom Gaming supported LGA 115X I saw the opportunity to reuse his Cooler Master Hyper T4. His tower cooler allows for perfect airflow in his Corsair 380T and it's fun to defy the limits of this case, as the T4 and his Strix 1080 are not technically compatible with the case.

Screw that noise. Well, time for an upgrade from the old 4770K, so I sold him on the 3900X (had to convince him AMD wasn't trash) and designed his build to work best. He laid eyes on some pretty ram, agreed to finally ditch his mysterious clicking power supply, and bought it all- right before I moved to Iowa for college. Well, he can build a PC too I guess.

 

As soon as he unboxed the motherboard and tried to affix the cooler, he realized the T4's heat pipes simply don't fit up against the heat sinks of the X570 Phantom Gaming ITX.

 

Who are we to be restrained by simple dimensions? (brace yourself)

Spec list, buyer beware for the phantom gaming X570 ITX.
