    Production SFFtime presents: P-ATX, the 9L case with ATX and AIO support!

    1: I'm running a flat 8 pin cable for the CPU underneath the motherboard with no problems. Basically if it can fit between the motherboard and the standoffs then it will work. Nothing thicker than that. 5: I'm not using the included stand, but it doesn't stand on it's own without it. This is...

    I noticed problems with not being able to screw in the GPU properly but this came down to the standoffs being a little too high. I sanded them down probably 2mm and after that the GPU fit perfectly.

    Sent an email, this riser definitely looks a lot more promising the way it's put together.

    I've also seen R5 3600 reviews that put it at less power draw than the 9600k, so in reality it does seem the 9600k uses more power than a R5 3600 checking multiple different sources. This image falls in line with my every day testing of usage with PBO disabled hovering 64-66w on the R5 3600...

    Those are without DLSS, which usually increases performance 20-30%. And he did say he is using it. The FPS might be spot on, but the temps definitely aren't, the best air cooled 2080 super on the market will hit at least 68C, while he's hitting 55C on MSIs budget cooler card the Ventus.

    My R5 3600 reads as drawing 64-66w during gaming and 80-90w during CPU stress tests. Even so getting 40C on a 9600k is more or less idle temps, you can't get those kind of temps under load without a full custom loop. Which leads me to believe either the monitoring program he's using is wrong...

    Are you sure you're reading those temps correct? I've tested my C7g on my old R5 3600 and I get temp spikes as high as 71C. Although Zen 2 does use a lot more voltage than a 9600k, but that's still a 95w part vs a 65w. I assume you have sync on which is severely limiting your hardware from...

    Since you're not really using much of the HDD bracket. You can break off the very back of it and just use the front half, attaching up to 1 HDD + 1 SSD on the front half or just a bunch of SSD. This allows you to use a slim fan as exhaust for the GPU in the space behind. Since open air GPU...

    That's very strange, every case I've ever used mounts the SSD with the side screws. I've never used a case that uses the back holes. Will definitely avoid that brand if that's true. Edit: Also you can use some non-conductive super glue to glue the riser shielding down. That should be a...

    As I've said this is mainly because there's a bit of play room between the main side panel and the main core of the case. I got around this pretty easily though. What I did was took some "hockey lizard skin grip tape" and placed it along the lips that the panel will rest against. This not only...

    Yeah, I don't know I guess whatever adhesive they used just wasn't strong enough for the sharp bends that have to be made with the cable

    After a couple hours I've seen the heat start to build up from the GPU around the center of the case, kind of like a dead zone of hot air that passively exhausts through the holes in the case. But this impacts the GPU from starting at 75C to peaking 79C after an hour or two. So yeah, either I...

    Going to be installing 3x 60mm fans to the top. Is it recommended to put them in for intake or exhaust? I feel intake would work best blowing cool air into the CPU area?

    True especially running a 8700k + 1080 ti with a 600w PSU. It's definitely getting hit for around 400w with no cooling capability.
