New rig built by Nereus (husband). 
 
 
For a mini-ITX case, the Corsair 250D is very well thought-out, and no problem dropping in a 120mm radiator with push & pull fans in the front.
 
The be quiet! push/pull fans on the radiator are the only fans used in the case, and it runs very quietly - idles slightly over 30°C with ambient room temp at 77°F.
The rig sits inside a modded desk with a grill installed at the front for air intake and a bunch of exhaust holes in the back and sides at the rear. Seems to work well. The last photo is a gif showing desk door open/closed.
Fire Strike score 15,699 with everything set on stock specs.
The Corsair 250D case normally has a flat front panel. I purchased the custom front panel (with all the holes in it) from MNPCtech.com - much better airflow as a result.
Awesome little mini-ITX build, even if the GPU is starting to get a little dated now (GTX-980Ti SC).
 
Parts used:
Intel i7-7700k CPU @ 4.2GHz base clock, 4.5GHz boost clock.
EVGA CLC 120 CL11 CPU AiO water cooling.
be quiet! model BL070 high speed 120mm PWM fans x2 for radiator, no other fans used with this build at all.
Corsair Vengeance LPX (black) memory, 16GB (2 x 8GB) @ 3000MHz, 15-17-17-35.
EVGA GeForce GTX-980Ti SC (06G-P4-4992-KR - with the Titan cooler) 1190MHz clock.
ASUS Strix Z270i mini-ITX motherboard.
EVGA Supernova 850 P2 modular PSU.
Corsair Obsidian 250D mini-ITX case, black.
Samsung 960 EVO (500GB) m.2 NVMe primary drive.
Samsung 860 EVO (1TB) secondary drive.
ASUS PB278Q 27" (2560x1440) monitor.
Phanteks Halos RGB fan frame (for some bling lol).

    I like the minimalist approach. Is that an AC Infinity grill? I added a 17" one to my desk to support the side ventilation for my Phanteks Enthoo 719 case.

    Cheers. On the desk door? It's an 8" x 8" steel HVAC duct cover with a black powder coat finish I grabbed from Amazon for a few $. Does the job and looks fairly good imho. :)  The side of the desk I just drilled a grid pattern of 3/8" holes through the wood, and the rear has an open rectangle so the GPU blower exhausts pretty well.

    I had fun building into a similar case for my daughter, the TT core V1 has a similar layout but I believe yours is smaller. 

    love the gif of the door

    Upgrading the GPU:
     
    OLD: EVGA GeForce GTX-980Ti SC (06G-P4-4992-KR - with the blower cooler) 1190MHz clock.
     
    NEW: EVGA GeForce RTX-2070 SUPER Gaming (08G-P4-3070-RX - with the blower cooler) 1770MHz clock.
     
    About 50% GPU performance upgrade. The 2070 Super was discounted down to $399 so I went for it. I was going to rebuild her entire rig, but the i7-7700k in there is still a pretty solid CPU, not that much of a gain going to an i7-10700k other than more cores, but it isn't really needed.. plus the 10700 runs significantly hotter - 91W vs 125W, and more heat is definitely not welcome in a mini-ITX build. Might be a small hit on the GPU performance with the 7700 vs 10700 CPU, but certainly nowhere near enough to offset the gain moving from 980Ti to 2070 Super. I'll do a benchmark and update ModsRigs once the GPU is installed.
     
    I'll take a look at the Zen 3 Ryzen 4000 chips when they come out in October and maybe consider a full rebuild then, assuming there's a compatible mini-ITX motherboard.

    So compact. Think a 30 series card would fit in it?

    Good question. I just checked it out.. apparently not. :(
     
    The card in there now is 265.63mm long, the 3070 / 3080 is 300mm long. The Corsair 250D case specs says max GPU length is 290mm. Ouch.
     
    The 3060Ti FTW3 would fit (285.37mm).. but none of the EVGA 3000 series come in blower style anyway (which you really need to have in that SFF case), so it looks like the current GPU will be staying there for quite some time.
     
    I will be doing a full rebuild on this in the next month or two - upgrading to a mini-ITX Z490 build

    That case looks like a breeze to build in. I love the way they designed it to open up so fully.

    How are the thermals in that case?

    No problem, although everything runs at stock speeds, I haven't overclocked it. The CLC120 AiO keeps the CPU nice and cool (push & pull fans) with all the cool air being drawn in through the front, and having a blower-type GPU means there's no hot air being dumped into the case from the GPU, so it's pretty good all around. Going to break that rig down soon and put a Z490 board in there with an i7-10700k and RTX 2070.
