    Fastest Intel CPU that will work in A4-SFX case with Noctua NH-L9i

    Dan - Wow that was an extremely informative post, thank you! I do prefer Intel CPUs, so I think I will do my build with an i7 8700 while also setting the "long power duration" to 95W. I did see that the v4 of the case is in the works, I looked around the the web for a release date and didn't...

    Fastest Intel CPU that will work in A4-SFX case with Noctua NH-L9i

    I have to admit I'm a bit confused when you say the L9i can't cool 95W. Dan said above that any CPU will work with this cooler as long as I set the "long power duration" to 95W (or undervolt) right?

    Myzhi, can you explain to a noob (me) what settings you changed specifically with the z390 to undervolt and keep tempts in 70-80C with the 9700K? Are you using the Noctua cooler?

    Fastest Intel CPU that will work in A4-SFX case with Noctua NH-L9i

    Maybe the i5-8600 would be the right choice to keep the TDP at 65W?

    Hello, For my first SFF build, I would like to use a Dan Case A4-SFX and I'm going for simplicity, so I'm going to do something similar to what Dan lists in his Intel-Performance build here: https://geizhals.at/?cat=WL-678542 However, I'd like to use a faster CPU than the listed i5-8400. I...
