Could you help me choose a cooler and a motherboard for the 8700k? I'd like the motherboard to have at least one m.2 header. I'm willing to delid the cpu if it improves temps significantly.
Thank you in advance.
I have been lurking these forums for a while now and finally decided to make an account to get some advise on a build I have been wanting to do for quite some time. I'm looking to build a portable (as in easily transportable by bike) powerhouse that supports an overclocked i7...
I am looking to transfer my music rig from a Fractal design Nano S to the s401 (For on the go) and am unsure of how to properly cool my CPU. I looked at the Noctua NH-L9i but many people have said that it is not up to the task. I currently have no graphics card so if liquid...
Hi, I just wanted to share my build which I'm using for both gaming and streaming simultaneously. After delidding my 8700k and installing liquid-cooling I was able to overclock my cpu to 4,9 GHz and keep everything under or around 70 degrees Celsius under heavy usage. Of course I had to put some...
Hello everyone! I recently built my first SFF computer case from scratch. But because Im lazy please read my post over at the LTT Forum if you got the time:
Some images of the completed case...
while I am waiting to finish my Cerberus-X build, I've decided to shrink my actual system from an Evolv Shift in a DAN case.
Well, now the size is PERFECT!! Thanks to @Thehack and his frame I was able to put the Noctua A9x14 on the Cryorig C7 cu, having now a perfect balance between...
Hi Sff Forum,
I'm building a Dan Case v3 and am in the process of choosing a CPU.
The Cpus im looking at are Ryzen Zen+ and i7 8700 / i5 8600 Series.
Is there a way for me to calculate what i can expect from a specific CPU with a specific Cooler
to find the best Performance / Temperature...
Hello, long time lurker but first time poster... Finally made an account today. When I first saw the S4 I immediately fell in love. It's such a pleasing case to look at, and the amount of power you can cram into it is absurd. I've been doing a bit of searching and this is what I've come up with...
This will be (another) attempt to squeeze both a GTX1080 and a 8700k into a brickless Skyreach S4 Mini - inspired by @JarrettP 's solution using two separate power supplies, but going for a passively cooled combo of a HDPLEX 160W
for the motherboard, and a 200W Mean Well PSU to power the...

Hello guys, i have been toying with the idea of building the perfect most high-end money no object SFF gaming machine, but i need advice on the parts, so far i came up with these :
CPU : Intel Core I7 8700K + Delidding Tool + Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra
MOBO : ASRock motherboard Motherboards...
My new project is %85 completed. Thats it my case. This case is unique in the World beacuse I'm using first time with that case Monsta Radiator :)
This project is not completed yet because my orders are shipped but not arrived. Hard tubes and Fittings for Hard Tubes.
If you don't...
Before going forward (this thread/build will be a while), just a bit of background.
I’ve always have been and will remain dedicated to air cooling, accepting the pros and cons of course. This time for this PC I wanted to finally build one in a mini case with max performance and...
Title pretty much says it all - what are you using?
I'm think I'm going to go with the Noctua D9L to cool an 8700k, but so far haven't been able to find a case that will fit a heatsink of it's size that doesn't leave space for a GPU - even though its not a 'big' heatsink as such.
Hello! Im completely new with the concept of mini PCs.
I want to build a PC to perform live and I was thinking on the S4 case cause I could mount it inside a custom build rack , next to other gear.
I Use Ableton Live and I use E drums and a bunch of MIDI controllers , so my project is big (but...
Just ordered mine. It's very expensive but i need it for my small build. 8700k can be very toasty.
