Found an issue with my unit.

The GPU bracket is too low and doesn’t sit flush with the GPU’s bracket. This also causes the locking bracket to be too high.
My GPU is an R9 290X. I tried another GP (R9 295X2) and it also has the same issue.
I tried readjusting the PCIE cable and the PCIE bracket and it didn’t help.

Can you take pics of the bottom of the PCI bracket? The little tabs and how they fit in the case?

Can you please send an email to [email protected] along with the pic and the problem.

Thx

It is! You see? Because is EXACLTY wide like the max dimension of the T1 (133mm) It makes pressure on the side panel, letting them bulge a bit in the center.
If you know any woodworkers/furniture makers near you, it would take about 10 minutes to sand 1mm off each side.

The temps are 2/3C better than the TX240. Both the coolant and the CPU, and also the GPU stay 2C lower.
why do you have to make my TX240 look bad, I just got them yesterday 😂 now I'm gonna have to embrace the bulge and put 3 A12x25 on that rad now haha
jokes aside, how's the bitspower pump top working out? will you go back to the DC-LT combo later? Yes/No and why please?

Nope, I am happy with the actual setup! I will not go back to the DC-LT for now. If the new GPUs are a bit longer maybe I will, but I love my setup now!

very true! though by that point I hope either the FreeFlow or the distroplate is out already haha

You know me..if 2 fans fit, 3 is better! It's the American way!
more is better - I studied Econ as my major and I approve!

Hmm, this will be everyone problem? because CNC machine working with pattern, they made same items in single plate aluminium. CMIIW

Here the temps after 25 minutes of Blender rendering, all cores overclocked to 4.3GHz and 1.275V for Vcore.

This is great! Were you using noctua Slim's or the Kaze flex? I think Kaze given the RPM at 99% PWM?

Last question @fabio: if you can take caliber measurement of kaze flex slim without pads vs noctua slim without pads, I'll rebuild my loop 🤣

It could be the bracket. Bracket is not CNC. This was one of the issues that was being fixed for V1.1

Edit: Looking at the pics more carefully, it looks like it might be easily resolved with an adjustment in the GPU and/or PCIe riser. Other users in V1.1 have not had this issue afaik.

I am using the Noctuas actually! I did it for you! 😂 (The reading is because I didn't change the MAX rpm to show in the widget 😁 )
Ok, as soon as I can I will give you the thickness of both with a caliper

Does anyone have experience with both versions of the DC-LT pump? Mainly on whether the 3600 version is reccommended at all over the quieter 2600 version.

SO, the Noctuas I have , are almost everywhere 15,30mm thick.
The Kaze Flex, 14,9 in the center and 14,8 at the corners!
The Kaze Flex structure is also less rigid!
