I’m continuing my study on overpowered CL530..:)
Right now I’m focusing on GPU.
Depending on my tests with my gtx 1080ti gaming X, especially on recycling hot air, sapphire nitro + on rx 6800xt could have my preference over Red Devil. (Lighter, more compact, as powerful)
However, Red Devil has...
Anyway, right now, I'll bench CL530 vs SM550 before potentially, luckily, hoping start thinking buying a new GPU (and CPU).
As multiple times confirmed, crypto currency miners have simply bought almost AMD GPU (even former generation) & Ampere GPU...very frustrating period of time for hardware...
Yes saw it, thanks.
Now he wants to replace his CL530 as thermal performance is not enough for him...it is sure that SFF world is pushing to make some compromises..;)
His remark about 5800X and L12S is surprising me.
I don't think so.
Main issue in CL530 (like Node 202) is hot air exhaust.
Those type of case are very good at intake but struggles on exhaust (node 202 is catastrophic on this later).
I need to check clearance between back panel & GPU, but potential exhaust in CL530 seems good. (like P/N ATX...
Don't miss understand my post..;)
I was refering to someone else post on Reddit that was experiencing major issues with RTX 3090.
As stated I'll benchmark in detail this CL530 (once received) by comparing it directly to SM550 and Cerberus-X...:)
SX750 platinum is arriving to market, as competition with cooler master v850 sfx gold...only missing player will be seasoned.
Most probably I’ll buy one sx750 for my future build.
Cooler master could be a decent choice, but as Corsair, I got 2 faulty psu in the past.
I'm continuing my study on CL530 (Main aim is to replace my SM550 with a 3-slots GPU compatibility at similar size).
However integration of RTX 3090 FE seems difficult. (check above link)
I don't really want to undervolt my GPU, especially as my SM550 has top notch GPU cooling capability right...
anyway, main focus & difficult points will be get all those new hardware : Zen 3, RX 6000 cards or RTX 3000...
From GPU point of view, for SM550 upgrade path is simple :
AMD : RX 6800XT/6900XT reference card
Nvidia : RTX 3080/3090 XC3 (EVGA)
CPU : Zen 3
Smart Access Memory support on...
Yes we agree.
Only point I’m not 100% sure is about top dual fans as I didn’t manage to put it in place in my Cerberus-x (mostly because it’s a pre-production version).
Anyway even going with middle single fan is working just fine
