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

    What do you think is the best orientation for the c14s with a window panel? I take it I’m better off with the Kraken x52 with the window panel?

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

    What cpu are you guys using? I have a 2700 overclocked to 4ghz at 1.3v and I’m cooling it with the Kraken x52. In some stress testing I never saw it go above 65c and it was still whisper silent. I can’t imagine the c14s would be better than that. I have the window panel too, so I don’t think my...

    I’m using the asus x-470 and the psu is mounted on the internal frame with the fan facing out.

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

    Does someone have cable lengths for their Cerberus X they want to share? I want to get some custom cables, but I'm not sure what lengths work best. I imagine pcie cables should be about 5 inches, and the 24 pin should be 6inches.

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

    Didn’t take the best pictures and I definitely want to get some custom cables, but my system is up and running. The motherboard i had was a dud, so the AIO was fine and I won’t need to replace it. My internet is awful, so I probably won’t finish actually getting everything done with it until...

    Definitely like the price of the Arctic aio. Under $100 usd for the 280 version. Thanks for the suggestion. I didn’t realize they had some aios.

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

    Sorry for asking a lot of questions, but the Kraken x52 I bought used might be defective, so I’ll have to replace it. That was the only one I was a fan of because of the pump block and the nice design imo. All of the other ones look awful to me except for the Fractal Design s24. I don’t see many...

    I had to take my build apart due to some faulty parts. The replacements will be here Monday though and I can post pictures.

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

    Hey guys, I just got my Cerberus x today and I’m almost done putting it all together now. I have my fans pulling air through the radiator because that’s the most common setup I’ve seen. Should I switch that around? Any other things I should remember before I finish up?

    Just ordered my Cerberus X! Just waiting on my Kraken x52 to come in tomorrow. How long does it usually take to arrive after it ships?

    S4 MINI Classic (S4M-C)

    I was thinking a 1060 since I can find them cheaper now that they are a bit older. Brickless might not be an option unless I get the skyreach mini.

    S4 MINI Classic (S4M-C)

    I will be using my 2700, but I’m not sure on the gpu. I don’t need crazy performance on it since I won’t be using it all the time. It would be hooked up to a 4K tv though and when I take it to LANs I’ll be playing on a 1080p monitor.

    S4 MINI Classic (S4M-C)

    Hey guys, this thread has been quiet for sometime now, but I am hoping to reuse my classic mini as an htpc/ LAN computer. I would like to try and make it brickless if possible, but I know the classic has less options in terms of brickless due to the space inside compared to the Skyreach. Any...

    Would a 240 aio be better for the extra space at the bottom? The cooling wouldn’t be all that different.

    Does the Kraken x62 fit with no problems on the bottom of the Cerberus X? I'm looking to get the x62 for my build. Also, do people switch out the fans, or do they keep the stock fans on?
