    Prebuilt [SFFn] ASRock's DeskMini A300 - Finally!

    I am happy with my A300+R3400G. Installed as well ADATA XPG F1 2x8GB 2666MHz memory and OC to [email protected] Only one BIG issue, not much of linux distros support ryzen integrated graphic or even can boot out-of-box, for the majority of distro kernel upgrade is needed :/

    Selling [EU-->Worldwide] Monsterlabo The First - Fully Passive ITX Case, 19L

    Hello, I am selling my The First (after starting to build my own wooden case :p) Fully passive ITX case with integrated heatsinks for CPU and GPU. While its main feature is 220W of combined CPU/GPU heat dissipation when fully passive, there's an integrated bracket in the case for a 140mm fan for...

    Production The First - Monsterlabo High Performance SFF case & Fanless CPU / GPU

    I tested 1800x vs 3700x on the same hardware(both at stock speed/voltage), with fan constant speed (same bios stock settings)...

    I had an experience with TT 200mm fan just once, with core V21 case. In less than a year it start to have a ticking noise at low rpm :| Maybe, need to drill a hole in Noctua fan to fit?

    Interesting... I am waiting to upgrade my rig to 8C ryzen 3700x. I will post my thermal results. P.S.: Temps in WoT EnCore bench :p

    As I recall correctly nvidia's boost take into consideration thermal and power limits. Default curve for the same frequency go well beyond official tdp of 180W.

    No, i will check it then i'll try to optimize it more. Since AMD boost to around same clock for x and non-x models, isn't this TDP too low compared to max power consumption?... at 28:14:

    Wow, great thing! I tried and downvolted 1080 to 900mV. Firestrike ultra stress test: at default settings: 55C and ~1750 frequency at the end, 28.11 avg fps undervolted: 52C and ~1830 freq at the end, 28.41 avg fps

    From my experience, for hi-end components case need a solution to have some sorts of air intakes. Even only 140mm fan will be effective. Currently, the bottom clearance is too small to allow an efficient fresh air intake, and 200mm fan won't help a lot because of his low pressure.

    Looks nice! You do not need necessarily attach the fan to the top plate. At least with noctua fan, thanks to rubber pads, if the upper plate is tithely pushed over the fan, he will never move (and there is no vibrations over screws) :) Looking forward!

    Yes, I have both fans installed. Mainly because the 20 cm fans do not have a lot of static pressure, and I installed dust filters not only on the side panels (as seen above), but also on the bottom of the case. I will try to test without a 14 cm fan in the future when I switch 1600x to 3800x...

    Personally, I put rubber spacers on backside of motherboard to tighten easily heatspreader https://postimg.cc/5XYVDg3Z
