    I know many people use this configuration, but that CPU radiator blowing so close to the GPU, on an overclocked CPU no less, is very off putting for me.

    And yeah, a GPU bracket wouldn't be missed here.

    Re: Scan 3XS Vengeance RTX

    Actually slightly surprised considering the sheer size of the cooler on the gpu, that they don't come with a gpu bracket similar to the one provided with Sapphire's implementation for the Vega gpu. Would definitely make sense considering the case used also doesn't provide one, like Lian Li have done in the past. Seems like a gpu that would benefit hugely from being watercooled itself, just to get rid of that weight.

    Entirely subjective of course, but hate that case (feet look cheap and nasty).

    I agree with you on the case but, a quick look at the configurator showed there is a wide choice of case options offered with this system.

    Remember that the CPU pricing has soared because almost all Intel chips are in severe constraint.

    Must admit, that's one of the things I do like about Scan's configuration options, being able to change the case to presets, or add one in later of your own choice.

    Agreed on this case. Shame they did have a better option for the photoshoot.
