No one done a watercooled build in the Phanteks Shift XT?
Same but im thinking of building with an external rad anyway so at least i could keep the internal components cool while all the rad heat is expelled elsewhere like i have it now.Sort of contemplating it, but I actually like the normal Shift X with full glass side panels and standing upright. I think XT would be an amazing option though if I did not have an external rad as airflow is much better. I wish there was a mish mash of the two cases tbh.

I've decided to finally move away from Phanteks for now, going ultra compact with a Dan A4 H20 and migrating my itx build into it with an external rad. Will keep the inside fairly roomy without having to squeeze a radiator in there so should be pretty clean.Yeah thats what I mean sorry. I think with external Rad, the XT is less attractive. IMO the XT fix's the normal Shift cases in terms of airflow and more so if you install radiators. The Normal Shift I think look prettier with large tempered glass side panels but that sucks for temps. Non-issue when you have an external rad. There are some elements of it I do like so would love to see them translated back to the normal shift cases.
All personal pref I suppose.
Yeah really pleased with it, its so much lighter compared to my shift build haha. Weighs a fraction of what that did and so much easier to move around the desk.Ahh that has turned out awesome. How you like it compared to the shift?
