Watercooler noob checking in.

If you had a case with space in the front for a 360mm rad, how feasible is it too cool both the CPU and GPU with that?

It's a 1080 and 6600k at the mo.
7700k and a 1080 on a single 420MM radiator with 3x140 ekwb vardar fans that I hover around 600 RPM. The GPU rarely breaks 45C, the CPU rarely breaks 65c, granted only mild overclocks at stock voltage since the goal was silence and not extreme performance. I did delid the CPU and replace the stock thermal paste with thermal grizzly conductonaut which yielded a 20c across the board reduction in CPU temps though. Basically my system temps track the room temperature more than anything else. Radiators can outperform typical air coolers of the same mass and dimensions because of how the case can breathe differently with them, air coolers pretty much always end up recycling some already heated air in a case, but radiators don't have to.

I'm pondering a wall-mount PC type of setup. Are there any good "cases" out there premade for this or is that still more of a DIY niche these days?

If you're having problems you're either holding the phone wrong or you have tiny girl hands.

A case with a VESA mount! Now I've got a really stupid idea about putting a dual monitor mount up but with a computer floating on one of the arms.
