Aerocool seems to have stepped up their game, those Mirage fans look amazing, are they as quiet and move the air as claimed? Normally there's a difference between standard and Pro versions, but their stats/looks are identical. How does the temps compare to the old case now?

They do! Although RPM is a bit weak at 1300, its doing fine. I'm actually not too sure on the differences between pro and non pro, but these are the 12 pro's. Disappointed in build quality though, the rubber feet are coming off due to gravity and adhesion going soft due to heat.

The cooler is great, with the 3600 idling at 34 degrees and about 10 mins into a Prim95 test only goes to 59 degrees.

Nice looking build. 👍. But there's a lot of weight on that right hand, lower cpu pipe and no support, it'd be one to watch for leaks, there's a considerable amount of stress on the lower edge of the o-rings.

Ouch lol. There should be several access points on that distribution plate, so they'll all work together, saving you some bending headaches. Running the loop in a good way vrs making it look good and being successful in both is always a challenge. 💪

It took me a while to figure out that the door handle is not part of the system :D
LOL yea its a little bit of a mess right now but im sure finished product will be amazing. That picture is only to show the monitor and desk setup thats my old build. This is my new build so far with new case and front distro plate and reservoir for liquid cooling system but thats all im saving im changing the motherboard with a new Asus Maximus XIII Extreme Glacial 590 motherboard with a 11th Generation inqtel i9 CPU and a 30 series GPU this final phase of the upgrade will be pretty expensive because i dont see a end in sight for the scalping of the GPU market buying all the stock up and selling it for triple. It will be a pretty badass custom build once i change the cpu, gpu andconnect all hardware that i can to the liquid cooling system. It maintains my cpu temperature in the 20's Celsius and thats without even turning the pump speed or fan speed on radiators up. My biggest issue is getting my hands on a 30 series gpu without paying triple. i can get one easily but not without paying like crazy. but like many others my impatience may get the better of me and might say oh well and pay the extra so i can get what i want.

My new mini ITX rig which I for some reason have called "Mini-Me" is completed! I decided after buying my 3080 earlier this year instead of getting rid of my former 2070, I would build around it, and make something that's smaller and more portable that would be far better than upgrading my aging Dark Knight rig.
