Lian-Li A4-H2O Black SPCC/Aluminum Mini-ITX Computer Case, PCI4.0 Riser Card Cable Included - A4-H2O X4 BLACK
About this deal
Aside from the obvious potential for keeping CPU thermals more in check versus a small air cooler, having the 240mm CLC take up essentially the entire top of such a small case helps to prevent hot air from lingering inside. The manual’s suggested tube routing represents an ideal case that isn’t easy to replicate with the Fractal S24 CLC we have.
Makes you weep at the level of build quality he gets, however there are other YTers that provide good info too. From what I've seen of SFF builds the fans are almost always intake except at the top where it's exhaust.PC builders and PC case makers toss around the hoary old term "SFF" (small form factor) as if it means something definitive.

This is another example of the manufacturer choosing to ignore protrusions like screws and case feet almost arbitrarily, and we again stand by our decision to include those protrusions.I'm really happy with the feel of the Thermalright AXP-90 X53 (Full Copper) and the temperatures are ok too. Users should definitely experiment with different mounting orientations and tube directions for best results.

To choose to ignore certain protrusions is not only a slippery slope, but could mean someone just barely isn’t able to fit a case in a media console or corner.
The larger radiator worked so well that we wouldn’t mind using the Lian Li A4-H2O with an even more power-hungry processor: Something like the Core i7-12700K perhaps? We’re still adding cases to the list, and we’re looking forward to testing lower cost options as well.
Because this isn’t comparative against other ITX cases due to a change in components between the smaller Terra and the Dan Case, we’re only going to look at the noise characteristics between the choice we found most impactful: The GPU positioning.
