    Concept Sun Cool 150W TDP slim heatsink

    I'm suspecting now it's unlikely to provide any notable performance and will just about be on par with other stock heatsinks, with the nice feature of it being copper, but which comes at the drawback of cost. It might, if they get incredibly lucky, be able to be roughly comparable to an old...

    Production Project CPR - Customizable PCI-E Riser (up to X16)

    Kotproger, I mean being able to reattach the excess after cutting it off. Simply such that if you've trimmed it down to say an x4 but in the future need the riser as an x8, you don't need to buy a totally new one. I may well have misunderstood something somewhere though.

    Concept Sun Cool 150W TDP slim heatsink

    Fruergaard is right. The heatsinks in the video are superficially similar to your one, however, they have a fan included, they aren't designed to be passive. They both have really rather thin fins, maybe no the absolute thinnest, but still incredibly thin, in comparison to yours, both have heat...

    Concept Sun Cool 150W TDP slim heatsink

    Stumbled into a video by NFC showing a couple of mini-ITX coolers in action. Thin fins. Heat pipes / vapour chamber. Noctua are the big boys when it comes to air cooling in my opinion so copy them bar their brown colour-scheme is a safe way to go.

    Concept Sun Cool 150W TDP slim heatsink

    Be sure if it will or will not work, otherwise your making a product which you don't know will actually work, therefore the simulations were meaningless. Or just simulate it as a silicon die heat source.

    Production Project CPR - Customizable PCI-E Riser (up to X16)

    Just an idea for a slight improvement. Being able to reattach the parts of the riser. Not sure if it's feasible at all, but it'd be pretty neat.

    Concept Sun Cool 150W TDP slim heatsink

    Pretty sure your typical CNC miller couldn't do this, however I wouldn't say it's impossible, or prohibitively costly, if the item is being mass produced. It'd really depend on the thickness of those fins and if they'd get teared off in milling. Extrusion would probably still be faster and/or...

    Yes mi'dude?

    1 water cooling loop for both CPU and GPU...

    I was having a bit of a think about using 1 water cooling loop for a GPU and CPU. One good pump with a nice 360mm radiator or such, then the pipes split so the CPU and GPU are in parallel. One way valves where it splits and joins back up to prevent back-flow. I'm likely not going to do this...

    Production WH-nano:5.59L Balanced SFF case

    Wow. It's so...small. Nice look overall. Cool work!

    Concept CPC-1 PC CASE

    Not a huge fan on this design however a good point it makes, you can have a massive fan in your cylinderical case. Big fans = less noise unless your Linus.

    Concept CPC-1 PC CASE

    I personally don't think "chambering" is the way to go. I think you'd be far better having a more open internal, and seeing how stuff just fits in one bit cylindrical space. Chambers could make airflow worse and cost a lot of space by restricting layout options. Your going to need multiple sides...

    The space inefficiency thread

    Sorry for the cruddy picture. Phone photos usually come out better but these didn't. Also, messy room so ain't getting it any further out. S340, Red and Black. If I go RGB I may paint the red bits white. i3-7100. RX580. Two SSD's and a HDD cannibalised from old PC's (we have a collection of...

    Origin of your nickname

    I am back with the intent to properly design a case, even if I don't produce it. So I'll chime in here. Pronunciation is just a nice capital L, capital J, spike. Now backstory. Back in the good ol' days of being a little kid I discovered the world of online games! Yippee, all these games...

    Concept CPC-1 PC CASE

    The reason for the usual upward flow of air is that ATX, and microATX (not sure about mini ITX) were designed for an airflow moving from the bottom (usually at the front) up toward the top rear. Originally they intended for CPU's to have passive heat sinks and the fan on the PSU to provide the...
