    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    Just a quick update on the increased venting and the GPU repasting. I replaced the side panel with the larger vent version and it did help the GPU temps by a few degrees. Not massive, but certainly a worthwhile update. I saw a drop of 2-3 degrees on the GPU. I really appreciate you making...

    Concept HDPlex 400W AC-DC External Enclosure

    Any new info on this? Id love a nice clean solution for an HDPlex 400w external brick. Currently running the Dell unit, but its not really enough for my setup. If I stress test it crashes out. It runs OK just normal use and gaming, but its pushing the Dell brick unit hard.

    Super cool! A single low speed front fan to pass air thru the case and the passive cpu heatsink would probably let you add quite a bit of wattage back into the cpu and still remain functionally silent. Maybe rotate the fins on the cooler to be horizontal rather than vertical if you did add a...

    The 10400 is plenty for me and any gaming I do is limited by the 1650. I was going to do a 3600 or 3700x also but when I went to microcenter to buy it they had just gotten the new batch of Intel stuff so I decided to give it a try. I have a 3900x and 2080 super system in the livingroom on the...

    Thanks, Let me know. I'd be willing to pay for it. Not a problem. Was actually thinking about buying a 2nd case so i could Frankenstein one of them and not have to worry. A single panel would be cheaper than that...

    Excellent note! I have not taken the card apart, but with what you just showed me I will probably do that this weekend! Certainly can't hurt anything. Good lookin out!

    So... you have a bunch of primary side panels that arent usable? Any chance I could buy one of these defect parts from you so i could do a little experimentation with adding some additional GPU venting. I want to try adding more ventilation holes, but dont really want to start cutting my panel...

    Hi. Under normal gaming use the GPU is running at 99% almost all the time so the temps get up there. Under just daily work or web browsing its no problem since there is no load on the gpu. Doing a bit more tuning on the power and frequency settings in MSI afterburner and I think I have it...

    Yes. Front fans pull air into the case. I did a bench test with the motherboard and GPU setup on my test bench and tested to see the limits that I could overclock the GPU before I assembled everything and it only got up to the mid 60's overclocked to the limit and pushed flat out and the fans...

    Hey Mr Lone. Just a quick post to say thanks. Great little case you made here. Really like everything about it (One suggestion for improvement). I got mine earlier this week and just finished the build. I didn't take pictures along the way so no internal photos, just the finished build...

    Budget APU Build - Case?

    I did personally go with the NH-L9A. But I'm probably a bit more of a fan snob than the average person... The fan that comes with the Asrock A300 wasn't necessarily "loud", but it was an annoying whiny pitch. Like someone above suggested, if the stock AMD cooler can fit with the fan shroud...

    Ghost Complete

    Props. Beautiful build. I love the ghost. This is super clean looking. I would almost run it on my desk without the side panels.... Otherwise who would know all the top notch work that went into it.

    Budget APU Build - Case?

    The answer to your question is simple IMO. The Asrock Deskmini A300. Perfect for Ryzen APU builds. And yes it does support the 3000 series APUs with the most recent Bios. However, Im not sure if they come out of the box with that most recent bios or not. Here is a lin to the supported CPU...
