    Was thinking of getting the hydro AIO on it. I have never done a custom block before and I'm not confident in trying now :)

    Why does the slide mention "frames per second (up to)" - is this still an average FPS chart? interesting choice of words.

    cus it’s dependent on type of workloads and in some cases cpu I’d expect

    OK, last post on this matter as it is really OT here.
    Some cases support inverted layout, usually so that the cases with a glass panel can also be placed on the left side (or the glass panel on the right side) and the components are still on display. I'm aware of 4 cases that support this layout, there may be more:
    - be quiet! 800 and 900 series
    - Cooler Master Cosmos C700M and C700P
    IMO it's not only about providing the features that I need, but also supporting masterful engineering that is required to achieve this degree of flexibility. You pay a premium for that though, as these cases are on the expensive side.
    If you want to build a PC like that, there's a few things to consider:
    - airflow: main concern is that the GPU will be pushing the air from top to the bottom. If you have fans installed at the top, they may work better pushing the air in towards the GPU rather than out. Then the issue is balancing that with sufficient quantity of exhaust. Water cooling may be the answer.
    - cosmetics: while I find it more inreresting to have the fans in the view rather than the backplate, pretty much all of the GPUs will have their logos upside down.
    - vertical GPU placement may become very difficult, as the card would have to be hanging from the top of the case.
    - I/O ports will be located lower, which I find beneficial

    if you buy a 3070 that isnt a FE TUF or what ever zotac has you have wasted your money and should have chased for even the zotac 3080, would vastly out perform what ever you got

    3080 Gigabyte Eagle for $1600 at ComputerAlliance. I have a 3070 Gigabyte Gaming OC in the mail but very tempted to upgrade to the 3080... Someone talk sense into me!

    The only sensible option is to get the 3080.

    Yeah even though I've overpaid I'm glad I got the 3080 instead.

    Now to look to sell off the 3070 when it arrives...
