    X570 ITX Motherboard Review Thread.

    Any news on the Asus Impact x570 dtx board? I've been curious if the Noctua C14 will block the m.2 riser card. edit: nevermind, comparing image of the dtx board with where the C14 sits in my own case, it is pretty clear that the C14 will bump into the m.2 riser card.

    ASUS 2080TI DUAL OC

    I wanted to retain my 25mm noctua pressure fans, not even including the 2mm or so rubber gasket between case and fan. Sounds like I may not be able to... dang.

    Could you please post a photo of the fitment? Might help me determine if I can fit it in with its fans removed and my noctuas retained.

    I'd like to know as well. Personally I would want to remove their fan shroud and just rely on the dual noctuas I have below the card currently (using an Arctic Accelero III right now).

    Buying Noctua NH-C14 (non-S) heatsink / cooler

    Thank you so much for the reply! Well back to plan A then! Unless I come across a steal of a deal, I'll wait it out. Hopefully turbulence can be curbed somewhat with a quality notcua fan running at low RPM. Time will tell! Just to confirm, the 135mm of clearance will be the case with a ryzen...

    Tartar sauce! I just re-examined the measurements and yeah... good point :( If anyone (@Damascus ?) still has one available let me know!

    Buying Noctua NH-C14 (non-S) heatsink / cooler

    I am still casually browsing for one at a decent price, but thanks to the prototype C-style cooler revealed by Noctua I'm willing to wait. The prototype will be just enough shorter to fit a full sized fan it sounds like.

    ASUS Strix X470-I

    I hate the shroud too, but with my Arctic Accelero III 1080ti I ended up having to remove it anyway! One of the screws on the corner of the X bracket was just barely hitting that shroud, so the GPU was a few mm from being seated properly (it did still boot). Figured it was the perfect excuse...

    Noctua "Black Out" Chromax Line

    Slightly shorter, and improved, NH-C14S.... oh my! Maybe I won't need to hunt down an original NH-C14 for my Ncase anymore!!!

    Buying Noctua NH-C14 (non-S) heatsink / cooler

    I am seeking the original, non-s, variant of the NH-C14. Currently my Ncase M1 build has the S version, and the slight difference in height is limiting my fan options. I've considered other similar options, but in the end I would like to track down an original NH-C14. Please include pictures of...

    ASUS Strix X470-I

    I had a preorder with Amazon for nearly a month. A little over a week ago they were finally in stock, but on Newegg, so I cancelled my Amazon order. Just finished putting my rig together last night! Fantastic board.
