xredlinexx1, thanks for the info. I'm looking to buy new at this time.

camborambo, thanks also for the info. Good to know that they were in stock just last month.

By they way, I checked the w360 site and it's back up. It shows that the case is out of stock. But it does allow you to sign up for email notifications.

I found some more information on the 3080/3070 XC3 cooler:


This one should fit.

Hi, @dondan is possible new version of dan a4?? or new version of asetek 92mm for better noise? i want to buy it on caseking.de on european zone, but isnt available, when i can buy it? rtx 3080 founders is available for dan a4 because has 2 slot and her size on picture is more small than custom, the problem maybe is the front fan, no?

Soda the composition now with Thermalright AXP-90R

CPU AMD something like 4700
GPU nvidia 3700

1 MSI MPG B550I Gaming Edge WIFI (7C92-002R)
2 Noctua NF-A9x14 PWM, 92mm
1 Noctua NF-A9 PWM, 92mm

1 Corsair SF Series SF600 80 PLUS Platinum 600W SFX12V (CP-9020182-EU)

Thermalright AXP-90R 45 Euro incl. shipping + 1 Noctua NF-A9x14 PWM, 92mm ( ~15 euro ) = 60 Euro
compared to 35 Euro from the NH-L9. For 10 degrees ? less I would do that immediately. Fan Duct is on top of that.

My question is if it fits on the mainboard or not. I don't want to have it delivered within 4 weeks and realize it doesn't fit on the board.

I do not dare to order at the moment ...

1 AMD 4700x 65 Watt CPU
1 NVIDIA 3700 e.g. ( EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 XC3 Gaming )
1 Thermalright AXP90/R Cooler
1 Samsung SSD 970 EVO 1TB, M.2 (MZ-V7E1T0BW)
1 Crucial Ballistix black DIMM Kit 32GB, DDR4-3200, CL16-18-18-36 (BL2K16G32C16U4B)
1 MSI MPG B550I Gaming Edge WIFI (7C92-002R)
2 Noctua NF-A9x14 PWM, 92mm
1 Noctua NF-A9 PWM, 92mm
1 https://de.aliexpress.com/item/4001...earchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_
1 DAN Cases A4-SFX V4 black, Mini-ITX (A4SFXV4-B)
1 Corsair SF Series SF600 80 PLUS Platinum 600W SFX12V (CP-9020182-EU)

in the english speaking forum I was recommended to turn the AXP90 90 degrees so that the fins seem to run parallel to the ram.

But I have no idea if this will work and if the cooler will fit on the board at all. I would really like to order including Dan Case but I don't dare. Cooler in Asia order 35 days wait and notice that it does not fit together I do not want to experience this. :(

Can Dan or would confirm that the purchased cooler works from the top, will it work with good speeds that will be superior to the Noctua cooler?

Dan, thanks so much for the info. Based on what we've heard from EVGA Jacob, it seems that the 3090 XC3 would also barely but surely fit the DanA4?

Based on what I could scrape together, looks like all the XC3 versions will physically be the same size, so in theory one could put a 3090 XC3 into the Dancase and have one hell of a small gaming rig :)

I know we don't have the cards in hand but any thoughts on deshrouding the xc3 3080? Wondering if I should get the xc3 or fe, just would rather not wait since it sounds like if you don't grab them right away you may have to wait till 2021 for a card and who knows what the mark up might be.

For those curious on the XC3 versions:

Black - No backplate, 1710mhz boost
Gaming - Backplate, 1710mhz boost
Ultra- Backplate, 1755mhz boost


Hmm, no black plate preferable?

Yep, I'm rocking a EVGA 2070S Black in Dancase, and the missing backplate has not been an issue at all.
Anyway, curious to figure out how the riser cable situation will play out. I have a B550 board incoming and obviously would like to take "advantage" of the PCIe 4.0 compatibility on both the card and mobo. But without a proper riser cable can't do that.

Dondan: any chance at all that you could offer the 3M™ 8KC3-0726-0300 riser as a separate purchase? :)
