It will be difficult to make the clearance wider b/c doing so will reduce the side wall thickness. During CNC machining, the vibration from the cutter might break it the part if the side walls are not sufficiently thick.

There is suppose to be 120.8mm width. Can you measure your radiator width and the width of your chassis for me?
Sorry I do not have a caliper with me. Can't go to office to retrieve it yet since everyone's to work from home

For now this is the best I can get:

No change for me either. Now I’m kinda worried since ours left earlier. Well, maybe Tomorrow
no progress for mine to Japan since 3/7 either, number of flights must have been very low and non-essential items like designer enthusiast cases pushed to even lower priority :(

Still no concrete answer on how to mount the LT with securfirm to AM4. Hopefully someone will post some photos and a how too.

In the meantime it may be possible to use securfirm and the AM3 bracket with modifications. Just cut the corners out.

No idea if the cold plate will reach the cpu. But there is plenty of thread to get a nut on the post possibly even a spring. Considering the AM3 brackets will end up not being used by 99% of people. I am thinking of sacrificing them and seeing if this method works.

I think you use the 2 holes in the middle because im pretty sure noctua coolers mount using the middle 2 and the bracket seems aligned with the 2 things in the middle already.

Same. No updates on the tracking, still shows "2020-03-09 - 航空公司启运 (Airline departure)"
I'm not worried though, EMS tends to be always slow and the situatuion here in Italy does not help.

This it the L12S, yes? Which CPU are you using? Does it get loud/very audible/annoying when gaming?
yes, this is l12s, i'm using [email protected]/1.25V also I have fixed speed for it while gaming, 1300 rpm, it was pretty audible in the previous case, and I still had no chance to test it in the T1.
I'm sure that noise level from the l12s will be lower now, as currently there is only one fan and it's below the radiator, previously I had push-pull config with one fan mounted on the case panel and there was turbulence noise from it.
I'll let you know when I done some testing with temperatures/noise level.

I would really appreciate it! I plan on being on air cooling for the foreseeable future until there is a distroplate.

I am pretty sure that the NOCTUA SecureFirm works with Intel 115X socket, because it replace the Alphacool Backplate that can be a mess to remove.

BUT for AM4 or amd, just use the stock AMD backplate and the four nuts/screws/spring included with the cooler and that’s it. I’ve installed the LT Solo on your same motherboard many times and no problem till now!

My case arrived and is stuck in customs. Here they don't try to guess the value of the product and will ask me for the details.

Has anybody completed a build yet with a 2.5 inch drive?
If by that you mean 2.5 SSD, yes I did, the end of the rigid plastic of the alim cable doesn't fit properly in the slot but it worked fine, they're just a little tension on it

Yes that's how it work for sending the package. But on the receiving end you can have custom fee that you will have to pay at delivery, you may even have to provide the VAT receipt to the custom first in some instances

he's in new york, so no import duty, VAT, or customs handling fees.

basically just pay for the case + shipping on the [insert company name here] website via shopify payment platform, wait for shipping/delivery (which is clearly a bit right delayed now based on the US test shippers' responses), and then that's it.

With stock AMD backplate you mean the one that is already attached to a vanilla AM4 mainboard right out of the box?

Yes! I mean, just follow the instructions on the manual of Alphacool LT for AMD. :) The problem is with the Intel 115X socket that has no factory backplate, and the Alphacool one is not enough "safe".

Ok good information.

So to be clear. There are no issues with mounting AM4. No need for noctua mounting?

Intel is the issue?
