Thought I'd through some photos an such up about my new case.
Gone from pure SFF to just a bit over SFF.
First up, components
CPU : AMD R7 3700X
MB : Gigabyte Aorus X570-i
RAM : DIMM3: Kingston HyperX KHX3600C18D4/16GX
GPU : Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2060
M.2 #1 : Crucial CT1000P2SSD8 1Tb...
Thanks, I think I have solved it, the Gigabyte board has a metal back plate which bar a small contact run of VRM's with some silicone pads is purely for "show" though who will see it is beyond me. I removed it as well as some other tweaks going from negative to positive air flow and it seems OK...
I recently upgraded my motherboard to the Aorus X570 an I'm debating a second drive. But the rear M.2 relies on dissipating heat via the a thermal pad to the chassis, which would usuallyvbe metal obviously the base is plastic.
I was wondering if anyone has an what kind of temps have you gotten...
I run that setup in my XTD, had to juggle bits around (flip the PSU) but it works.
I did run a pure APU build in the normal LZ7 I ran a slim 120mm fan as an intake an a full thickness 140mm fan as an exhaust that would really well.
I have the side panel as an exhaust, poor photo but I can't find the charger for the SLR.
So base intake is the 92mm then the 120mm as an exhaust you can kind of see the thinking, PSU is facing the board. I'm slowing working on shorter cable runs and a better lighting solution.
Anyone had any issues with hot PSUs? I have my case mounted vertically (cables out the bottom) and the PSU mounted fan facing down.
Seems the upper left if getting a bit warm to the touch, Solved by taking the wood panel off which is the top for me, just wondering has anyone else come across...
With mine I have the U9S fan orientation is a bit different but not ideal.
The front 120/140 has a Noctua slim 120 as an exhaust with a fan on the the heatsink graphics card side drawing air in. seems happ enough temps are within the acceptable range, GPU is noisy but thats the GPU's design...
I'm using a 150XT Pico on my 2400G build without issue, thats APU, SSD, M.2, 16Gb RAM an a couple of fans. Its been rock solid, iirc the 3400G is the same power draw anyway so theres no reason it wont run normally.
Need to clean up the cabling, the Pico is a little close to the RAM but liveable.
Temps so far are great idles quite happily between 34-38c load while gaming gets to 57c but its nigh on silent. More importantly the other components don't seem to have any problems temps well within comfort...
