I'm looking to build a SFF system with a GTX 1070 (using an NCase M1)
I see that SPCR has a build guide where they use the case and put in an Arctic Accelero Hybrid II, so it seems like a good choice for the case (I assume that the newer III would be fine, as well).

But, I was wondering, has anyone compared this cooler to the MSI Sea Hawk X? This has the advantage of being cheaper than a video card + a separate cooler, and also eliminates a lot of the hassle of install.

Thanks.

I went ahead and got a Sea Hawk X
The pump itself is pretty reasonable, but the GPU fan is somewhat buzzy. I'll need to pull out the SPL meter to get a reading on it.
The radiator fan, IMO, is pretty loud. I immediately replaced it with a Be Quiet Silent Wings 3, which is much more tolerable.
With the radiator fan set to 50% and the GPU fan set to automatic, I saw a max GPU temperature of 45 degrees over a half-hour of gaming.

I may try taking off the shroud and putting a 120mm fan below it.
