    Raijintek Thetis: Another small ATX case

    Nice! Now you just have to ditch that 3.5in drive for a 2.5in ssd ;) I recently dropped a 4TB samsung SSD in mine.

    Raijintek Thetis: Another small ATX case

    Nice! I really like that magnetic cover. I've already started to have parts on my break from all the times I removed it. I've been debating buying this AC Infinity fan cover/grill and cutting out the top of the case to install this with a bit more offset to better fit my radiator: I'm not...

    Raijintek Thetis: Another small ATX case

    No, but I've been contemplating it... the main thing holding me up is that I'm on year 6 of this hardware, ready to refresh it, but I can't get any stock of the CPUs or GPUs I want to build it with. I instead bought a used 6950x and replaced my 5930k with it and will just use the extra cores as...

    Oh, right, the 3xxx series has that blow-thru fan... I guess try top down first and run prime95 and furmark together for 30mins and see what your temps are, and then reverse the fans and see if they are any better/worse...

    I'd go reverse airflow in your case... set bottom and rear fan to blow inward, and rad fans at the top to push air through the rad and out the top of the case.

    Nice! I also added larger feet to get more airflow out of the bottom.

    Raijintek Thetis: Another small ATX case

    Nice! That's a lot of PC in a little box. I'm still looking at possibly finally picking up a Cerebus X or something now that I know I can build in a case this small. Would be nice to have some side-mounting options in a case like that.

    The top filters are pretty good. Default layout is top intake, exhaust out the back/bottom. I've tried it a few different ways. I currently have the case on its back panel. I use the top and center bottom as intakes. PSU and rear fan are exhaust.

    I don't really have any before/after data, but it does seem to be quieter, either due to less air noise, or due to more airflow causing slower fan speeds due to lower temps... =)

    Raijintek Thetis: Another small ATX case

    I recently cut the entire bottom fan grill out of mine, much like how I cut out the rear fan grill. I also removed the fine plastic mesh in the top metal grate to get more airflow.

    Completed SFFtime presents: P-ATX, the 9L case with ATX and AIO support!

    Strange that you're having issues. I just fedex'ed in a macbook from china with no issues. I mean, it sat in china for a few days, but once it started moving, it quite literally arrived at my home overnight. Arrived just a few days ago.

    Raijintek Thetis: Another small ATX case

    Looks good! I might get a shorter PSU though so that your GPU sits level, but it's not really an issue...

    :highfive: I still have an X58 system running here at home too =) I'm amazed at how well it still does.

    I've crammed a bunch of stuff into a 14x14in Rajintek Thetis ATX case: I'm currently on version 3 of my build, which is pretty messy, but has good thermals and a full water loop: My earlier builds were a bit cleaner: All the build info here...
