Hopefully we get a review sooner rather than later - I imagine a 3080/Ti FE would work just as well in classic mode in the C4 as it does in the M1.

Is there any updated ETA on when we'll be able to purchase it or is it still Q4?

Is the silver anodized finish bead blasted, or a brushed finish?
Forgive me if I overlooked this info In a previous post.

Thanks

You can finally rest now. Your watch has ended. 😂
I wish, but between the Meshlicious still not being available in Canada and my GPU search, I've still got a fair bit of time left on my watch:

@All: I really try to understand why Ali has so bad thermals in sandwich mode but I can't get. Just in this moment I retest it on my 3900X Ryzen with an RTX 3080 FE and I got really good temperatures.

Here is my test as a reminder:


Maybe he will take a look at it again.

Do your fans on the AIO run at 1550 and 2000 rpm in the sandwich layout (push and pull config)?
The fans in the review are running only at 1200rpm (at minute 6:30). But could this make such a difference? Hmmm I don't think so especially when the temps are lower in classic layout and the fans running at even lower speed (1100rpm).

I did think the PCB was supposed to have a cutout, so that certainly did not help.

But he uses an Intel 10900K, so of course it turns into a furnace. No one in the SFF community should even think about getting Intel at this point.

Not true. Mid range 11th gen blows out Ryzen in terms of value. A $170 11400 gets very close to performance of a $300 Ryzen 5600x.
