    Case and air cooler recommendation for 3700x and RTX 2060 super

    Best bet is the Ncase, I would wait for the v6.0. Going to be tight in the front IO/power button area.

    Case and air cooler recommendation for 3700x and RTX 2060 super

    Yeah if you are still thinking about getting a Steck it is probably too long and too thick, have you looked at the Sliger SM560?

    Prototyping Nouvolo Borg (a.k.a. Qube) - Cube PC Case (12L)

    If you can get a hold of a H7 probably going to get pretty decent cooling.

    Intermittent sound/graphics issue, do I need a new pcie extension?

    I know it would be a pain to do but you should pull the parts out of the case and install the GPU directly to the motherboard, see if that fixes the problem. Save you the trouble of replacing a good riser cable.

    Production CCD MI-6 Microtower Case: Performance in less than 7L

    When I first got the M.2 I was still using my Ncase and bought it because I was seeing idle temps of 70C and load temps of 80C. At first I wasn't running a bottom fan and temps barely changed at all. I installed bottom intake fans for GPU cooling and later noticed my M.2 temps had improved a...

    Production CCD MI-6 Microtower Case: Performance in less than 7L

    I used this one off of Moddiy, bought this back before EK and others started to make them. It is 3mm and not had a problem with clearance.

    Production CCD MI-6 Microtower Case: Performance in less than 7L

    I have the same motherboard and the I am using a MyDigitalSSD which uses the Phison controller which run very hot. I installed a heatsink and had the bottom fan as intake, lowered temps 10 - 15C. Make sure you have a fan at the bottom, the heatsinks don't help if there is no air movement.

    Sffpc build recommendation for light to medium rendering jobs

    You could probably get by with the SF450 but the SF600 is a good PSU, I have one with 8700k and RTX 2070 and works wonders.

    12 cores in under 10 liters. [3900X, Sliger SM550]

    Build looks great, love the logo on the front. Be interested with your thermal results. I have a set of @pslate cables in my Ghost and I have to say his power cords look really cool.

    Production The Sliger SM550/560/570/580 (2 and 3 slot riser layouts, with air and liquid cooling variants)

    You can only rotate 30 degrees. I have an Apogee Drive II in my Ghost and even with Koolance low profile 90 degree adapters the height is still 65mm, just fits in the Ghost but won't work here.

    AMD X570 ITX Motherboards

    Not sure if any of the x570 will support Win 7, I have a MSI B450i and it supports Win 7. Edit: Appears only works with * To support Windows® 7 64-bit, you must install an AMD Pinnacle Ridge & Summit Ridge CPU.

    Production CCD MI-6 Microtower Case: Performance in less than 7L

    Nice build, I had the GTX 1070 Aero itx in my first MI-6 build, it's a good little GPU. If you want a custom 24pin cable you might have a talk with @pslate from pslatecustoms, he does a lot of custom cables for SFF cases and might be willing to do a custom fit one for you.

    Prototyping Expandable custom loop ITX Case with distroplate built in

    Maybe it is just me but I can't see the point to this case unless you are doing a full water cooled build and then it is brilliant. So I can't really see the need for 3 slot GPU support. Also wanted to say that everything looks incredible so far and great job bringing it about so quickly.

    Ryzen 3600 vs 3700x temperatures (65W parts)

    Thanks for posting that @TheHig, I have a 3600x coming and it will be my first AMD in many years, I have seen a lot of people talking about very high voltage readings and was a bit concerned.
