    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    It is air-cooled. I don't want to watercool until I can get my hands on a FE edition of the 3080 or 3090 and use the limited edition EK waterblock that's really short. It isn't plug and play, but if you use the ThermalTake Toughfan 140s, you can shave the edges off to the first notch on three...

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    Got mine! Finished installing it into my Meshlicious PC case. I went with the Black POM and Copper Version. Pretty easily assembled, no leaks, tooling looked fine. O-rings take a little patience, but not too bad. Been running for about 3 days. I installed it with a 45mm thick 280mm Alphacool...

    Eagerly awaiting this release!!!! Hope development is going well and still slated to be ready this month! About how many will be available in the first run do you think? Want to get one early, I have a custom loop waiting on this as an upgrade from my old aquanaut, since I switched to Intel and...

    Can’t wait for this release. I just moved my 5900X using OG Aquanaut out of my Meshlicious to a Velka 7/3090X build. Really need this product for my Hackintosh Meshy build with 11600k/6900XT!!! The it’s already built, just patiently awaiting this!!! Will buy as soon as it’s available. If you...

    That is a price I can get behind! Very competitive for what the product offers imo!

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    I don't speak for everyone, but yeah I would love for it to match the Optimus cold plate gen 2. If you really don't want me to send it that's fine, but I wouldn't have offered it if it was that prized. I won't be needing it anytime soon, until I buy your version 2 product anyway, and I'd love...

    I already ordered the cold plate from Optimus. So instead of giving you dimensions, I’ll do you one better and send it to you when it comes in this week. I have zero use for it if the screw holes don’t line up for this Aquanaut I’m currently using anyway. You can keep it as long as you...

    Production Meshlicious - 14.5L Vertical, 280AIO mainstream case

    Just got my Meshlicious in! In case this hasn't been answered yet, The Arctic Liquid Freezer II 280 DOES FIT. You have to take the fans off to slide the RAD in and then mount the fans back on the Rad, but it fits no problem. Being the thickest AIO I'm aware of at 36mm that's AWESOME! It was the...

    Production Aquanaut Combo/Extreme - Ultra Low Profile CPU Block & Pump Mount Combo

    I have one of these already and love it, but I have a quick question. Does anybody know what the thickness of the cold plate by itself is? I don’t want to take mine apart right now, but was thinking about trying to use an optimus cold plate v.2 and see if I ended up getting better temps with...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    The only things I see missing from your photo are what you already know about. The power button and the rubber feet.

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    I was in on the September pre-order and received my Velka 7 today! Some thoughts: The case is sturdier than I thought it would be. The edges/corners having the steel poles is awesome, they definitely make this thing feel solid. The powdercoating/painting or whatever on the side panels is pretty...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    Michael are all the newer versions of the case, including people with a current pre-order going to receive the updated front panels? Just wondering when the revised version will become standard issue. Thanks.

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    This is just my opinion but a 3800X inside the Velka 3 is probably too much. A 3700X would have been a better balance. You're not really losing much gaming performance going with the 3700X. Based on your GFX card choice, I'm assuming this is for a portable gaming rig. I just don't think the 37mm...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    Nice, let's hope we both are! Yeah Michael is definitely swamped right now. I wouldn't expect any action on the forum from him for a few days, which is totally understandable.
