    zotac 3070 amp in A4

    @dondan if I wanted to go with a 3090 or 3080, I'm looking at moving up to a bigger case like the h20 or c4 - if I can get my hands on a card before those come out though what are your top recommendations there (with the understanding that it's not optimal)? Seems like the evga xc3 will fit with...

    Just as an anecdote, I just had a capacitor burn out on that motherboard. Let's see how good their customer service is, they've had a lot of one star reviews on google maps for their returns :/

    EVGA 3090 in DAN A4 v2

    Super, much appreciated for that. My system is currently down with a blown capacitor on the motherboard but I reckon i'll hop on an evga card when the right amount of ram comes out. Cheers for the advice!

    EVGA 3090 in DAN A4 v2

    @KulaHI Were you using the larger fan under the asetek IO with the losercard power supply raising mod too? Are the badges on the fans just simple stickers and the heat is loosening the glue? Cheers!

    Cool, so some of the issues highlighted by ali / optimum may already be addressed!

    EVGA 3090 in DAN A4 v2

    Superstar! This has definitely become more interesting with the 3080ti being dropped down to 12 gb of ram. Not totally clear on how you're cutting down your 3090, seems like you're going for the shroud and fan area rather than the backplate? Very interested in your thermals and noise levels. I...

    EVGA 3090 in DAN A4 v2

    Wow, I'm really impressed by that! Very stupid question but what type of thermals and clocks are you getting? We aren't being fair to such a big card but I'm kind of tempted. I've got a 3950x in mine and I've been waiting for the 20gb 3080ti for a while, if one of these came around I might be...

    DAN A4 v4.1 - My first SFF build - need your help

    I'm on a 3950x and the 645lt also, I have the block at the bottom of the case, a NF-A9x14 on top of that in intake mode and a second NF-A9x14 under my motherboard also in in take mode. Idle temps are around 55-60c and up around 75c during gaming in cyberpunk. As far as I heard, the 5000 ryzen...

    Cooling Tips: Achieving better acoustics with the Asetek 645LT

    Thanks for clearing that up @AseDen

    Cooling Tips: Achieving better acoustics with the Asetek 645LT

    @AseDen dragging this one up from the archives - any idea what fan and screws this was? I was using a low profile noctua on top of my 645 and when I tried flipping it, there wasn't enough height in the fan to cover the right angle fittings on the block. It also seemed like it'd be really tricky...

    My first ITX Build - Dan A4-SFX V4.1

    @dondan it seems like the 10600k is a higher tdp rating than the 3950x but this build has nice temps with the blackridge. Worth a look compared to my higher pitched 645lt and noctua over radiator or do you think it's risky?

    Dan A4 with 3900x Build

    @vcxzy I'm a film vfx artist so I need as much cpu power as I can possibly get. Typically my scenes are too big to git into GPU memory so CPU and normal ram are still really relevant. I've been so busy in work this year that I haven't fully pushed the system yet, my chaosgroup vray benchmark...

    Dan A4 with 3900x Build

    If you can find one at a decent price, the 3950x is cooler than the 3900x - lower clock speed but more cores so it cools better as per optimum tech. I'm running a 3950x on an aorus x570 board with a 645lt, a noctua on top of the 645 and another noctua underneath the motherboard. Using pslate...

    Fits a RTX 3080 ?

    So we have this as an exhaust solution and also people getting better temps by adding the additional stand off spacers also to give the 3080 more of a gap between it and the psu - interesting!
