Hi all, got myself Dan case A4 few days ago, so i registered here, to share experiences, learn few things, and to thank creator for very very awesome case
I got 4 windows machines, and 2 macs, and i thinker a lot with my windows PCs, its a hobby i enjoy.
I decided to make small 4k capable gaming machine, that must be silent as priority, and cool as second one, with no hit on performance.
This are the parts i used:
Asrock H410 ITX
Intel Core i5 10400F
Kingston HyperX 16GB
ADATA Xps 1TB NVMe
Palit GeForce RTX 3060Ti Dual fan
Silverstone SX 500W
Dan Case A4-SFX
Installation was fast and easy. The GPU performance and noise in gaming was not
. Fans are average, so they where making a lot of noise, because GPU was at 80C max, but boost was low at 1650MHz. I was not happy with that, so i went and bought 2x NF-A9x14. That didn't help at all, no matter if i put them intake or exhaust, or 1 intake 1 exhaust.
I cant stand noise, so I went back to store and bought 2x NF-A12x15, took off GPU shroud and fans, and put Noctua baby on the GPU.
Then went to BIOS, setup all the fans, boot up, launch afterburner, undervolted the GPU, fired the games, and yeah it worked like a charm.
Whole PC is silent, cool, and performance i excellent, max temp 75C, boost up to 1950MHz, depending on the game, average is around 1900MHz.
I am happy with whole machine, just need to buy SSD cooler, since i don't like the temperature on it, it goes up to 70C.
Here is the link to the pictures, since i just registered cant post pictures here:
