    Dan, can you explain why the added 35mm to the total height?

    I have Arctic P14's in both the normal and slim versions that I would be using in the build. Those should be good for the radiators? The only issue is maybe their thickness. The full-size fan is 27mm thick, and the slim fan is 16mm thick.

    Thanks for the list. Do you plan on doing quick connects for the side radiator or just having the tubes long enough so you can remove it if you need to? And is there a big difference between manufacturer's of watercooling components? I looked at XSPC for their slim rads, alpahcool, EK. Also...

    Has anyone worked out a parts list for doing a dual 280mm water cooling build?

    DAN C4-SFX

    I am really looking forward to this case, as I plan on doing my first water cooled build in it. Dual 280mm Rads, etc. I'll be transistioning from my NCase M1 v6.1. Which is currently stock, and not water cooled. I couldn't water cool that case anyways because I have TUF 3090 and all the water...

    @dondan - I'm curious if you did any testing with the Noctua C14s with the 140mm fans?

    How much better is the D12L compared to the C14S. I'm probably missing something here but... D12L = 1 or 2 120mm fans, with a 140mm fan on the side bracket? C14S = 1 x 140mm in low profile, along with 2 x 140mm fans on the side bracket?

    Air Cooling Ncase M1 - Silent and Powerful

    The Silver Arrow 130 is a great little cooler. It cools just as good as the C14s. I had both but went with the C14s for the looks.

    Perfect Air Cooled Ncase M1 Ryzen 5900x RTX 3080 FE

    You said you settled on B550 motherboard? Which brand, model did you go with? My current build is a 3950X on an Asrock Phantom Gaming B550i board (because it has the type C header) paired with a deshrouded Strix 2070 super. I originally purchased the Gigabyte B550 aorus pro ax itx board, but it...

    Air Cooling Ncase M1 - Silent and Powerful

    NO, the C14s on ANY ITX motherboard (B450, X470, B550, X570, etc.) will need to be used with a 120mm fan in order to keep the PSU in the stock position. I have seen someone cram the stock 140mm fan in there and leave the PSU in the stock position, but it causes tension on the cooler and bends it...

    Air Cooling Ncase M1 - Silent and Powerful

    The C14s is the superior cooler. The U9S is good though, if that's what you really want. If you check the SFF Reddit and search for u/M1AF he has a spreadsheet that will show you all the different cooling combinations you get do for the M1. It's an extensive amount of work that he did. But the...

    C14s + Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AX issue

    Sorry for the late response. I don't have pictures of the overhang of the C14s on the Aorus board. I swapped it out for the Asrock B550i Phantom Gaming ITX/AX board, and everything fits just fine. Of course the socket placement on the Asrock board is more central compared to the Aorus board...

    C14s + Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AX issue

    UPDATE: Fixed the issue, had to tear the board apart just to get to the battery in order to reset the CMOS. Trying to short the jumper on the board just doesn't work. Also, the board + C14s is not compatible, no matter how you mount the C14s on the B550 Aorus Pro AX it won't fit. The vertical...

    C14s + Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro AX issue

    Mounting the C14s vertically on the new Gigabyte B550i Aorus Pro AX motherboard results in the end of the heatpipes making contact with the GPU backplate. This is also with the bend of the C14s heatpipes pointing up which Noctua says not to do. I'm not sure how much of a temp difference that...

    V6, 9900KF, Thermalright Silver Arrow, 2080 Super with Accelero III

    That's really weird that you're 3600 + SA130 isn't performing well. I stress tested both the SA130 and the C14s on my 3700x and they both performed extremely well under load. It's been awhile but I was seeing temps with Prime 95 running for over 48hrs peak at like 82-85c. So both coolers are on...
