Thought I'd share my first ever build. Really happy how it turned out.
  • Ryzen 2600
  • Gigabyte B450i
  • Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 3200MHz
  • Corsair SF600
  • Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB
  • Samsung 860 EVO 1TB
  • Radeon R7 370 (may replace with 1660 at some point)
The only small problem I have is my RAM keeps going back to 2133MHz. I set XMP to Profile1 and it works fine as 3200MHz but when I restart PC or shut it down, RAM goes back to 2133MHz.

NVMe drive is around 50°C. CPU and GPU are around 37°C. Didn't really test yet on full load.

Have you checked if any BIOS update is available for your motherboard ? That might fix the XMP issue.

BIOS came updated for Ryzen 3000 with version F40. There are two more versions available after F40. I may update, I am worried something might get messed up.

Backplate removed?
Wondering what kind of magic you did to fit it there because it shows the card thickness is 50.2mm but max that fits according to dan cases site is 45mm.
I didn’t take the back plate off and did not modify anything on the gpu or case.

Here's another Black Ridge V2 on the Dan A4-SFX.

CPU Fan: Noctua A9x14 2500 RPM Version
Case Fan: Stock Black Ridge Fan under the motherboard, set as exhaust

Ambient: 27C
Gaming Load Temps: 55-65C
Synthetic Load Temps: 80C
BIOS/UEFI Settings: All stock for the CPU, with Manual RAM timings at 3600 C16 (Ballistix Sport LT)

Setting the Black Ridge fan to intake and the bottom fans to exhaust appears to be the most optimal configuration for air.

Such a pity that it's not possible to mount those two fans on top for exhaust. That would be my perfect layout.

Build done up in late may thought I'd like to share this DAN A4 V4 build.

i7-9700K lapped IHS & die
ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ac
KLEVV Bolt X 3200MHz 16GB @ 3900MHz C18 2H Stressapptest
EVGA RTX 2070 Blower
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB
Crucial P1 1000GB
Corsair SF750W Platinum
Asetek 645LT 92MM CLC
3x Noctua NF-A9x14 PWM

I have requested for a custom BIOS from ASRock back in early may (P4.00 based) with IA (Core) AC/DC control for adaptive mode (offset) based OCs. The checksums are in place obviously as with regular production BIOSes. Gigabyte/Asus has this option already exposed. As the default VIDs when used with positive offsets cause tremendous VID boosting and wild vCore fluctuations beyond what adaptive does.

Setting IA AC/DC value to 1 (by AMI Aptio V BIOS values) is the equivalent of setting 0.01 on asus

Use at your own risk.

Heya everyone ,

I got the asetek 645LT AIO installed , but i raised he feet of my Dan a4 and i installed the Fan below the chassis not inside the case , i did this because i believe the fan was being choked between all those cables...
You think its worse?
Should i get it back inside the case?
I dont want to go for PSlate cables as i find them to be too expensive for me especially if you order them on priority , plus that with my taxes they go too high.

Anyone can confirm that asetek 645LT tubes can get over gskill trident z and close the case nicely? I heard some talks it works.

Hello!
I built my Dan with a 3700x and a Noctua NH-L9a. I am now wondering how much I would benefit from an Asetek 654LT.

My rig scores around 4600 at Cinebench R20 and has an average clockspeed of 3865 GHZ on all cores. After a few consecutive runs, the cores are at around 80 degrees.

If someone has an Asetek with the 3700x and can share his numbers, that would help me figure out if I order one or not. Even though the silicon lottery may not allow to estimate a potential gain accurately.

I mainly fear the mounting challenge about the 654LT, I have lots of cables under my PSU, and the pump noise.

Have you tried the 3D print fan duct before twitching over to the 645LT?

I have the 645 and the pump noise is inaudible as long as you turn the RPM down in the bios or a fan editor.

A bit offtopic, but since we were discussing X570i chipset temps a few days ago, it's woth noting that according to a Gibabyte tech we may use the wrong PCH temps info on HWinfo:

So it might not be an issue to keep the NVME on the slot between the chipset and the fan. i have it there, and actually the fan allows to cool the ssd as well.
BTW the whole thread is interesting to follow, and with new bios information on the 1st page (https://www.overclock.net/forum/28023210-post4.html). Last bios (F4L) was posted yesterday.

Anyone have the 2070 Super in the Founders in the A4? If you do, how are the acoustics, and temps and would you recommend something else?

The IDLE noise of the FE cards is very high and you can reduce it so I would use the Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER Windforce OC

Thanks @dondan . There was another reply somewhere on this forum that the GB card doesn't fit when the 645LT is installed.

I do prefer the GB because of idle stop feature
