    Some of the more specialised stuff, like this kind of memory sticks for example, isn't going into distribution outside euro zone, I think, and there are stores that sell those directly from german distribution here, but it's simply that they order stuff there and mark up the price and add...

    Those are like 50% more in Poland, and are 2666, not 2933, so I was wondering about that part.

    Wouldn't really expect that to work honestly - that's a 125W TDP CPU and that 125W is probably without turbo. There's no silver bullet for that. Also what kind of cheap VLP ram you are talking about? I'd love to test that out.

    I have no idea which way did you mount it, but probably it's the opposite way. The whole point is for it to have a solid mounting to the case body :)

    Lower lip of the riser mount in your build is not inserted into the notches of the center wall. It's not assembled correctly.

    Oh, I didn't notice that. So it's not really a black ridge clone, it won't support 120 mm fan under the fin stack. Still, this is technically just a reversed NH-La, but made more complex because the fan is under the fin stack, worse mounting mechanism cause it's ID-Cooling and maybe looks...

    This kind of riser is not supported by our case. Sentry holds the riser by the pci-e slot body from its sides. You need a riser that has PCB parallel/going straight into the pci-e slot plastic body on the GPU side. The one you have linked has slot body soldered perpendicularly to the PCB. Also...

    I think that for the blower fan, making the duct so small is potentially limiting the airflow. I'd make it bigger to take as much area of the inlet. The perforation reduces transfer area.

    I did try it. https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/sentry-2-0-evolution-of-console-sized-gaming-pc-case.7106/page-32#post-145622 There's a lot of stuff we have actually tested before deciding on how to proceed with each version of Sentry. We've got a stack of those transparent plastic...

    I did test that. The same effect of fan being close to perforation and being loud because of that.

    I've tested this adapter: https://www.overclockers.co.uk/bitspower-ultimate-fan-adapter-80-92mm-to-120mm-black-fg-015-bp.html As a fan duct, although the cover wasn't fully closed because of it, and two noctua nf-a4x20 pushing air out from over the chipset and it didn't do much on 3700X. Zen2 is...

    Not really scientific approach here, but roughly it looks like this: I'm running War Thunder at 144Hz freesync @ 1440p. I've fixed the clock to 4GHz on 3700X at 1.15v and I have 60W PPT as in "45W ECO mode". NH-L9i was running on something around 55 degrees C on stock/normal fan curve C7G was...

    Fun fact - you know what Cryorig still can't do properly with C7G? You can't mount the cooler on AM4 with just included wrench/screwdriver because you need to move the standoff/distance screws and the included wrench/screwdriver can't be used for those. They are pretty tightly screwed in. You...

    Installed the C7G in my rig just now. It's like I can't watch anything on youtube on stock setting cause it's whining. And it's just like 1 degree better than NH-L9a ... Investigating further...
