    Discussion Should I add a GPU to my system or get a better APU?

    Hello, I have a mini-ITX motherboard with a i8700k but without GPU which I've been using for for music first and foremost (DAW/studio as well as live music with a lot of processing) as well as for day to day use (browsing, text editing...) for 2 1/2 years. I watch some videos but I don't do any...

    Concept [UPDATE 04.30] LYNX S Series: A Cylinder Mighter on the Ground. 12.5L & 14.9L vertical case with water cooling and full-size graphics card.

    Hello, this is an interesting design. I like the idea of having the outputs on top. I have opened a related thread recently: Cases with motherboard outputs oriented to top? IHMO the main reasons to set the outputs on top are: 1. A fast access to them in order to plug and unplug cables easily...

    Discussion Cases with motherboard outputs oriented to top?

    Since revision 2.0, Velka 5 and Velka 7 both have all outputs on the rear instead of top.

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    Hello, I’ve seen some pictures of V5 with the motherboard outputs oriented to top. However on Velka’s website the picture shows the outputs on the back. Is the top orientation possible with current V5? What about V7?

    Discussion Cases with motherboard outputs oriented to top?

    Also in this category: Sliger SV590 and SV540. DarkFlash DLH21 (but I don’t see the point on orienting the outputs to the top if they must go through a single opening on a side). Also I couldn’t find the company’s website. Velka V5 and V7 but there is some confusion as how the motherboard is...

    Discussion Cases with motherboard outputs oriented to top?

    I am not sure if I will get a GPU. I am in audio and my current setup uses the Intel integrated graphics successfully. However this could be an issue if I switch to AMD.

    Discussion Cases with motherboard outputs oriented to top?

    Mhhhh, the Xtia is a totally open case, which I prefer to avoid also (for transportation first and foremost). I like the Silverstone FT03 but the plastic parts make it looking a bit cheap. Actually Silverstone appear to have other models with this configuration: CS-01, CS01-HS, as well as the...

    Discussion Cases with motherboard outputs oriented to top?

    Hello, My current assembly is in a Sharkoon QB One. I would like to build a new computer inside a smaller case, probably with watercooling/AIO. The QB One has a big asset, that is four USB connectors on the front. It seems that only a few models have this feature. However I have figured out...

    Cooling Your opinion about my aircooling flow diagram for the Sharkoon QB One?

    Oops... ...I forgot to mention there’s no GPU. Would you still give the same advice knowing this?

    Cooling Your opinion about my aircooling flow diagram for the Sharkoon QB One?

    Hello, I am assembling a PC in the Sharkoon QB One case and I would like to be sure to have the best possible aircooling flow. Can you comment on this drawing? I have a Noctua NH-U9S (red in the diagram) with two 90mm fans (grey and yellow). I have two 120mm fans (orange and green) for the...

    Enclosure Factal Design Node 202 and Asus Z370-I Gaming backplate misalignment

    Thanks for the suggestion. Finally I could plug my HDMI but it's a bit inclinated and it's very sensitive to any plugging/unplugging on other plugs on the motherboard. Anyway I have decided to switch to a Sharkoon QB One case to get more space for better cooling because I want to achieve some...
