My goals -
Be able to play current games at 2160p on MED-HIGH with 60fps, or 1440p with HIGH-ULTRA at 60fps
1TB SSD for gaming
4TB HDD for movies/media
No optical drive
Need to optimize cooling for powerful components while keeping small form factor
BUDGET - $1200

How can I keep CPU and GPU cool while using the smallest case size possible?
I'm think liquid cooling the CPU for sure, but should I invest in a liquid cooled GPU as well?

My current thoughts for build:
Waiting to see Ryzen 3rd gen prices, but probably whatever the follow up to the Ryzen 5 2600x is...
RTX 2070 (do they make these small enough to fit in a micro-ATX build?)
16GB DDR4 RAM
1TB WD Black NVME
4TB WD Blue HDD
Corsair 240mm Liquid Cooler
Also I want to incorporate blue-tooth on MOBO for accessories

Any recommendations for a good horizontal case for HTPC/TV gaming setup?
