    Ryzen 3600 vs 3700x temperatures (65W parts)

    Hello, seeing as orders have opened for the new Ryzen chips, I'm curious about the fact that the 3600 and the 3700x both have the same power draw of 65W. Despite the 3700x being more powerful, I know this doesn't necessarily mean it is going to run hotter. I know it's very early days, but I was...

    Taking the NH-L12S/Big Shuriken 3/etc. off before transporting my system due to weight

    If I went with a NH-L12S/Big Shuriken 3/etc. sized cooler for my portable SFF setup would I need to remove them before transporting the system? Are the coolers too heavy to remain secure on the motherboard and not cause damage? Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm asking because I...

    Mini GPU on a diet

    ***** Before I start, it's worth mentioning that this isn't an ongoing build per se. It's the steps taken to modify a component, for my build. It's probably been done before, but, I figured it might be cool to some people, and this seemed like the most appropriate space :) ***** For my current...

    Petition for short tube sff specific 120mm AIO

    Hello, I'd like to tag @AseDen for this thread. So when designing chassis, some of it is a bit of a chicken and egg problem. We had a few chassis built around specific coolers in mind: namely the Big Shuriken 2 and the NH-L12. The Dancase A4 had also been modified to fit the Asetek 92mm in its...

    Smallest case fitting i7 8700k OC

    Good morning, 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...

    Buying Case and Cooler

    Hey all, I want to try my luck at snagging a deal on a premium sff case! Something along the lines of the Dan Case/Ncase, but even the ranks of Case Mod will do. Pretty much a beginner at this stuff, but let me know what deals can be had! For coolers, I am looking for something that is decent...

    Noctua Graphene Coated L9a & L9i Cooler

    Just found out about this on Noctua's official Tmall page: L9a Link L9i Link The graphene version is new and there is no information about it on the page. I understand that graphene has much higher thermal conductivity, but does it work well in real life?

    AMD Wraith spire fan on wraith stealth?

    Hello Everyone! I'm planning a build on the Geeek A40 and most of the options for CPU cooler are pretty ugly or expensive. My CPU will likely be the Ryzen 7 1700, which comes with the Wraith Spire LED cooler. Clearly the spire does not fit the case, but it is easy for me to purchase a cheap...

    AIO cooler dimensions in Sugo SG13

    Hello there, I just joined the community today after spectating for quite a while. I have a general fit question for AIO CPU coolers in the Silverstone Sugo SG13 WB-Q. Has anyone attempted putting the NZXT Kraken X42 or the Deepcool CAPTAIN 120EX in this case? My concerns are- - NZXT 140mm...

    Dan Case A4 with open air gpu

    I'm currently thinking about doing a build in the beautiful Dan Case A4, but non of the blower style gpus i'm looking at really match the aesthetic of the build. I was curious, would I be okay using the EVGA SC2, with an open air cooler, for should I be looking at exclusively blower style?

    Closed Cryorig C7 Cu Copper NEW!

    I got my hands on two Cryorig C7 Cu coolers from China. They are in the possession of my TaoBao agent (very reputable company called SuperBuy - confirmed via pics). There is a bit of an "early adopter fee" because of shipping from China, but I figured for a chance to get one of these after...

    Anyone have experience with ID-COOLING IS-25i?

    I'm not very satisfied by the looks of Scythe Kodati that I have so I was looking for a cooler and came across the one in title. I'm wondering if the fan is detachable and I could replace it with a regular 80mm case fan of my liking.

    Thicker fan on Noctua nh-l9i

    I currently use my noctua nh-l9i as cpu fan. And no surprise, it's very silent. I saw that I can get 25mm fans that fits the cooler both in the beige color and in the grey redux one. can actually fit it in my case and still have 10mm before I hit the plate. Will they perform better than the...

    Low-Profile Cooler Suggestions

    Hi, posted this elsewhere as well but wanted a broad opinion range. In the past, I bought an AXP-100 Muscle and used it. It's a damn awkward cooler, but it cooled an overclocked (4.5) G3258 well for a side spare build and worked just fine for what it was, temps were good too, nothing to be...

    AM4 ITX Cooler Compatibility

    I was wondering if anyone would be able to answer my question of whether or not the Dark Rock TF would have any compatibility issues on both the AsRock AM4 ITX or the Biostar X370GTN which I am about to be using until the AsRock board becomes available. Also probably worth noting that I am using...

    HG Osmi Build

    After missing out on the A4-SFX batch this February I did some case hunting and came across the stunning Osmi case. Despite the oft mentioned difficulty of working with it, I've been quite taken with its looks. It's the best looking ITX case out there IMO. With that said I'm thinking of the...
