Did u run your L12S fan as intake or exhaust? I find that if I run it as intake, with the same cpu temp around 55 c during gaming, fan speed is about 50-60% when using fan as intake and will increase to 70-80% when using as exhaust. Using fan as intake does heat up the case a lot even with a...
I run my L12S as intake blowing towards mobo thinking it’s probably beneficial for vrm cooling (not that I really need it because I’m not overclocking and not using a very tdp processor).. but I’ve never done any stress testing. Not sure how the other components like chipset, m.2 SSD are doing...
Actually it’s screwed in on one side only, I placed some pads to support the other side. Just to demo/show/try out that with a little bit of creativity, there’s no lack of storage options. Alternatively, that space should allow at least a couple or more 2.5 inch SSD
Looks like the turning the psu 180 degree is the way to go whether using a aio or not.. will help with both cable management & psu exhaust in this orientation
If turning the psu 90 degree, the cables exiting is too close to mobo, might not be feasible unless using custom ultra short cables
Exactly... i think i will remove the bottom screw on the SSD side, just to reduce the stress on the connectors
once secured it with the GPU to the backplate, i would say overall it's rock solid
this is the first sandwich layout case for me though, so i have no past experience how others perform
Just for sharing...
My build specs:
intel skylake 6600 + noctua L12S
zotac gtx 1070ti mini
ram 16gb DDR4 2133mhz
corsair sf600 platinum
m.2 SSD x 1
2.5 inch SSD x 1
3.5 inch HDD x 1 (yes, i put it in, why not?)
*Temporary system - problem with Ryzen 3600 system
i thought flipping the SFX psu feature was removed... (vivid memory it was stated that it is dropped in one the older post)
Glad to know it's back! Might help A LOT to keep the cable mess from chocking the 120mm aio fan. Thought i'm just going for L12S, will test it out later if i have the time.
