    SFF.Network Behind The Scenes Updates

    I genuinely feel bad for anyone who's bought these boards and has all these issues. It should at least work on default out of the box. Gigabyte are being hammered by the community for what seems to be a shambles across all their Z690 range. Asus seem to be having the most success with boards...

    Try that one, a Gigabyte engineer just sneaked that link into that thread I don't know how long it will stay live for.

    SFF.Network Behind The Scenes Updates

    It just shows how rushed to market this was, the major forums I frequent are rife with Z690 issues. Intel really haven't done much QA with it. Right now consumers are the beta testers. I think you've been lucky to have had such a good experience so far. It's a far call from what others are going...

    You won't with PCI-E 3.0 drives, it happens on PCI-E 4.0. The temp fix is to drop the lanes from 4.0 to 3.0 if using a 4.0 drive

    SFF.Network Behind The Scenes Updates

    Running DDR4 above 3600 reliably is another "seemingly" Gigabyte specific bios issue across most of the Z690's atm. No major DDR4 testing on what Alderlake IMC is reliably capable of either as yet, could be a bit of both. I have some B-die here I'd want to play with at 3800 C14 Gear 1. which...

    SFF.Network Behind The Scenes Updates

    I keep looking at one for a 12700 65w fun toy build. Trying to resist until it gets a few more bios revisions / more exposure I'd have to order off the Egg, UK availability is non existant. Read all the horror stories it does seem hit and miss. The Gigabyte B660 board looks utter trash for the...

    Concept Thoughts on how to compremise between SFF and cooling.

    Edit:2 (Cut out the longwinded reply) Keep what you have and go external rad/s? get all that heatsoak away from such a dense packed area.

    Motherboard Z690 ITX Motherboards

    If I was building an ITX Alderlake rig anytime soon, the only half sensible choice is the Gigabyte DDR4 board. A better bet is to wait for the B660 ITX boards if you don't plan on a 12900k. B660 is more than enough for 12700k and under. Rumor is you might lose the PCI-E 5.0 on B660 but at this...

    SFF.Network NVIDIA Announces RTX A2000 Low-Profile Workstation GPU

    I had one on pre order and cancelled, just not enough of a bump to warrrant that price tag. A fun toy? sure, but not at the price.

    Completed SFFtime presents: N-ATX - 14 L case with ATX mbo and psu, 4-slot gpu and 360mm rad support!

    I know what you are saying there Marc, I think something like an A12x-15 pulling air onto the Backplate with an A12x-25 (maybe using a 3d printed duct) assisting with Flowthrough on the other side looks to be an interesting proposition here in the N-ATX 14 for 3090 FE users Will need to use a...

    Completed SFFtime presents: N-ATX - 14 L case with ATX mbo and psu, 4-slot gpu and 360mm rad support!

    He's using a 3090 Founders Edition, they exhaust differently to AIB cards. I can see why he's asking these questions. This case will attract a lot of attention from 3090 Founders Edition users wanting to keep them air cooled. With how you've designed it, it's perfect for that use case scenario !!!

    Enclosure Does anyone make sv590 v2 window panels?

    None for sale from 3rd parties that I've ever heard of. You could probably mod one of the panels that come with it. Or get someone to do it for you, makerspace, laser cutting services, local metalwork engineers, panelworkers etc.
