    Selling [EU-->Worldwide] Monsterlabo The First - Fully Passive ITX Case, 19L

    Hello, I am selling my The First (after starting to build my own wooden case :p) Fully passive ITX case with integrated heatsinks for CPU and GPU. While its main feature is 220W of combined CPU/GPU heat dissipation when fully passive, there's an integrated bracket in the case for a 140mm fan for...

    Prototype Winter One v08 -- Custom Case update. 15.4L SFF with dual 240mm radiator + Full Length GPU. CFD Goodness inside!

    Winter One -- v08 Update Last Changed: 25 May 2020, 12:30 am So it’s been 4 months since I showed off the v05 design. Since then, there have been 3 iterations on the case, each one with a different focus: * v06 — Cost Savings & Manufacturability, Exterior Redesign, Exterior Airflow Studies...

    Prototype cirrus7 incus - fanless case for ASRock DeskMini A300 and other popular STX sized boards.

    Introduction: We have been working on a passivly cooled STX design lately. This form factor has gained quite some interest since ASRock has launched its DeskMini A300. The DeskMini A300 is a nice SFF Barebone system based on the AMD Ryzen CPUs with a powerful Vega 11 GPU integrated. The idea...

    Prototype CoolerCase ...a case that cools...

    After over thinking for way too long this semi passiv cooling project, that I should describe as a "trial at universal GPU and CPU cooling integrated in the case", I don't really know where to start... A teaser? A disclaimer saying it may fail miserably? Some specs first maybe... Motherboard...

    Cutting my passive heatsink to fit (?)

    Hey guys! I got the Arctic Alpine 11 Passive heatsink pared with i3 2120t 35w. It's about 5mm too high and I really want passive cooling. Can I trim/cut the fins? My thinking is by removing ~ 5% of it's total mass shouldn't affect it's thermal dissipation that bad. The fins are only made of...

    High thermal conductivity dielectric material?

    Hi guys, I'm looking for the best high thermal conductivity dielectric material which is widely available to consumers / companies and needs to be a semi-solid material so it could be injection molded :) I need it for a project i'm working on involving some high electric components which I...

    Heatsink theory

    Sorry for making so many new threads. Anyhow, I'm thinking about how to make the best possible cooling solution, either 100% or 90% passive. It seems maximum surface area of heatsink is the bottleneck (heatpipes are uber-effective at moving heat away from the CPU, so the only issue is...

    Covering your entire case in heatsinks / building a custom H1.S clone frankenchild.

    So I'm wondering, if I used some heatpipes going to the outside of the case, and covered the case in something like this, Or, simply made the entire case out of heatsinks (I don't really know how I'd do it... I can't weld or anything like that). Wouldn't that be the ultimate passively cooled...

    Thoughts on how to passively cool a GTX 950?

    I have my current build inside a Jonsbo U2 case which contains an Asus GTX 950 mini but I'm thinking of downsizing further. I'd like to move to a sub 5L case in the future, probably custom built. To give you an idea of the layout I am going for, it will be like the In Win BQ series of cases, but...
