    Phanteks Evolv ITX is a great case that is quite large for the form factor, but makes for a very easy and clean build with lots of cooling potential for high-end parts (check the link in my sig).

    I have the Evolve ITX with a Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML240L in the top.
    I can take a picture and post when I get home if you like?

    You can do full custom watercooling in it, so you'll be fine! The Phanteks Shift X will do it too.

    I just bought the Fractal Design Nano S. Decent price on Scan at £57

    Not managed to build everything into yet as the MB does not arrive until next week (and I am away all next week anyway). That said, there is a lot of space in it for all sorts of hardware. I would just suggest an SFX power supply to give that little bit extra room around the GPU. Having measured, it will take a gigabyte windforce 2080ti, but not the Palit Dual of the same if you have a radiator and fans in the front rather than the top

    I got the evga 650w sfx power supply. Fits a treat and would mean the fractal could take a 2.5 slot wide gfx card without breathing issues on the first fan

    Do you think a 2.75 slot card would be an issue with the Corsair SFX PSUs?

    A couple of photos (Google is your friend) show there will be room, as long as the ATX to SFX adapter allows mounting the PSU at the bottom in the Nano S (e.g. the Silverstone adapter).

    The top picture is with a Gigabyte Aorus 1080Ti which is a 3 slot card.

    With the evga one, using the bracket that came with it (which must be similar if not the same as a Silverstone one) you effectively get another 2 slots worth of space, so a 3 slot card should fit in the case with an sfx power without issue.

    That said, I bought the gigabyte windforce 2080ti, which is a 2 slot card but fits length-wise even with a 240 rad and fans in the front of the case

    @Fingers66 I had been looking for 2080tis in that case on Google. Hadn't figgered to look for 3 slot 1080tis as a reference. I am slow.

    Here it is...almost done...made a 3d printed custom plate for wiring management, because I like to have the wires straight...just needed to cut a small rectangle above the big oval hole and then i fixed that red plate with m3 screws....
    It came along very nice...with plenty of room for a custom watercooler...though I'm thinking to modify further more the case by complete removing the plate where the radiator mounts and cut 2 holes on the top of the case and mount the radiator permanently on it...and also upgrade the 200mm front fan with a noctua one...or 2 140mm fan for blowing fresh air into the case as well I'm planning to put an an acrylic window to the side panel...
