    S4 + HDPlex 200 possible brickless + build questions

    Personal experience, 8700 DOES NOT consume 65W, it goes upto 80-85 during full load. 65 is TDP. the combo of 1060 mini and 8700 will not work unless you underclock or undervolt considerabley!

    May I know which hole we are talking about? If its the rear ones, definitely it wont fit, as its 12mm. If its front ones, i dont see why it can't because the connecting diameter is less than 16mm. Some pictures might help.

    Dynamo 360 with Hdplex 160DC-ATX

    I have a similar query, I currently run a 8700 & 1060 with a hdplex 160 and Mean well uhp200-24.

    Though copper is a good conductor, its oxide layer is not... If the ihs forms an oxide layer it might be less conductive to heat.. Thats why intel coats the IHS before installing. Though it might look sick, you are gonna slap a heatsink anyway...
