    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    I feel like Rev 2 of cerberus should eat the penalties and go a little taller to fit more top AIO options and regular sized fans. Maybe I'm the only one that would be willing to deal with 20-30mm more height.

    What direction (intake exhaust) do you have all of your fans set to? I'm still refreshing best-buy trying to nab a 3080FE myself. I won't have quite the narrow gap issues. I have some rubber screw substitutes myself but I paid the Brown tax for them. They work fine but they're pretty pricey.

    Log SMALLEST ATX CASE : CERBERUS-X (Complete build log)

    Marc, that is really annoying. Sorry you have to deal with that. Hopefully that will mean that if a user does order a SX750 that it will be the 1.1 with proper fan info. Has the SF750 treated you well? I have a Ryzen 3600, an NVME storage drive, 2 sticks of ram, and an EVGA GTX 1080 all running...

    I gotta say.... I like my U9S but that looks quite pretty and makes me consider AIO.

    Thanks as Always @MarcParis for your thorough tests. I presume that a 3080 FE is same length as a 3090FE. Would a front NFA12 fan fit in the front of the case for helping to vent the hot air off the GPU? Looks like it might be a little long. Also what is IBT 2.54?

    What is IBT? IBT 2.54 Very High and Cinebench R20 (multi) free? I was considering doing a before/after on temps when I change my CPU cooler in the next few days.

    If I'm planning for that RTX 3080 FE to show up for a 5800 CPU pairing, what PSU is your favorite that is available in the USA right now? (Prefer SFX) What 3080 did u nab? Got any pics in a Cerberus X yet?

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Recommendations for an SFX or SFX-L that would work in a Cerberus X and also handle an RTX 3080 or 6800XT graphics card? Notes: 1. I'm not sure an SFX-L would work with a 3080. 2. I would also like some headroom for a future CPU upgrade. I've got a 3600x right now, but am considering a 5800x...

    I was going to recommend X for you all the way up until you mentioned flying. If space is a premium for travel, also go smaller if you can. There are so many ITX/DTX (and a few MATX) for AMD that you're basically fine with the non-X to me. You might want to confirm compatibility before you dive...

    Inspired me to head over there and skim the thread. Found this gem. Convinced to wait on one of those for my next build.

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Is this the proper thread to share opinions for new variants of Sliger creations? Would a new thread be ideal? I was just thinking I would like a Cerberus/X 2.0 with a few options. 1.) Reverseable / top mount GPU. (looks like the S610 and S620 do that) 2.) A little more vertical height...

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    This is where I was pulling my data. It's just one data point so I'm guessing if the temps are lower, it is only a few degrees for 5600x v 3600. Just found this one too. Looks like it is slightly better, but probably not worth it for an AIO build. Maybe slightly quieter on air but performance...

    I thought hardware unboxed said the opposite, but maybe they were mistaken.

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    I wonder if Ryzen 5000 will run cooler similar spec v spec vs previous processors. maybe worth an upgrade (if you're on the fence) for the more limited thermal envelope of cerberus/x

    I know you have moved on to bigger and better coolers. I plan to not overclock and may get a 5600x or the 8-core version (forget the name). In each case I'll just let precision boost do its thing. I'll post pics once I've assembled in case anyone is interested but may not get to it until thx...
