    Custom modular AIO tailor-made for the Dan A4

    Hello there. So with a week off, I decided to give this project another go. It was a stressful experience. Instead of just being content with default components, I mod my gpu and now do this while being constantly terrified in the process of messing things up. I'm a laid-back kinda guy in...

    Dan A4 - riser cable on the GPU side?

    How dangerous / stupid this is..? GPU riser cable is set on the GPU side, behind the plastic separator When GPU is inserted, it's resting on the plastic separator, but is not tight too much. I'm just looking at it and wonder how stable that plastic is, since it's touching GPU metal backplate?

    PSU / Asetek AI airflow issue in DanCase A4

    Looking for some advice on my DanCase build. When installing the GPU, there's very little clearance between the bottom of the GPU and the top of the AIO fan.
