    I was away for a few months and the original idea has changed completely. I came here because I liked the original idea - I'm out.

    Node 202 - Ryzen 2700x running hot

    Did you even read the TDP Guidelines for your cooler on Noctua's website? It clearly states: For the 2700X - Recommended with good case ventilation only, might drop below base clock speeds with continuous 100% load. This is clearly a case of a self inflicted issue, caused by lack of research...

    So either investing in filters, or having them be included in the package would negate the downside of mounting radiators in way that improves performance, but reduces accessibility.

    Haven't cleaned the radiator in my current system for 2 years and it's still below 50° when running at full speed. There's also a filter to take the brunt of my dust filled room. Last time I cleaned it, it only yielded Δ2° improvement, but changing the TIM yielded much better improvements, so I...

    Yeah, it seems like a CPU and GPU watercooled setup is another project in itself and the C4 sounds more like an expansion upon the philosophy of the A4 with a revised aesthetic design. Would make sense in my book. Maybe a case specifically designed for watercooling only could be the next...

    Opinion time! I'm gonna be honest here and say I would probably buy whichever contraption comes out of this thread, because the suggestions I've seen so far cover more of my needs than any other case currently on the market (not 100% but damn close). All >> I << really want is a slightly larger...

    Not true. I use AIOs to keep noise down and as a hardware thermal hysteresis, not for overclocking. I'm personally in the market for a 2x240mm SFF case (two 120mm would probably do, but my hardware selection will be limited), since that allows me to get a watercooled dedicated graphics card...

    I currently have a 120mm AIO on my aging i7 920 (+130W TDP) and it's handling it like a champ. One of my friends has a (third party) 120mm AIO on his Vega 54 and temps are are around 60°C +/-5°C when gaming (depending on the room temperature and seasons), which I would personally place well...

    Concept "Cable Management shaft" of 2x 120mm AIOs?

    You could have the side of the rad with tubes, pointing toward the front and back instead, running the tubes along the front and back. Maybe even have some kind of built in protusions in the case, where you could fasten the tubes with velcro or cable ties. It might even alleviate the length...

    1st 120mm AIO: Ryzen 2400G 2nd 120mm AIO: RX 580 On the surface it might not make sense slapping on AIOs, but I'm not doing it for the temperature; silence is my goal and the AIO provides enough "resistance" for temperature changes, so that fans won't sporadically spin up and down. It also lets...

    1) IMO no. 2x 120mm AIO is exactly why I'm interested in this case. 2) USB-C. By far the more practical and aesthetic solution

    How do you know this when... Systems falling within the SFF domain are inherently small (that's kinda the point) and every SFF builder knows that compromises have to be made - it's about finding the perfect balance and getting as much out of it, despite the constraints. No one here expects the...

    This. So much. It seems like a recurring topic in the water cooling community. I'm not gonna start arguing about the merits of different configurations, because honestly, I don't care. 55mm clearance seems to cover the majority of AIO components, which is what is important here. It's not about...

    Production MJOLNIR: The minimalistic – but not boring – 9.7L Case

    Personally I think that's a bad idea. Send it to HarwareCanucks or another similar professional youtuber instead.
