Building with stock cables is kinda a pain in the ass, but the case is just so small and good looking. :eek:

Comparison with NR200p and Antec 300:

Internally:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5600X (stock settings)
AiO: Corsair H100i Platinum w/ 2x Noctua A12x15 (intake)
GPU: AMD Radeon 6800 XT (stock settings)
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 3200MHz 2x16GB
Motherboard: ASUS ROG Strix B550-I
PSU: Corsair SF 750 Platinum
SSD: Western Digital WD_BLACK SN750 NVMe SSD 1TB, M.2

In terms of thermals I am left with the following (HWiNFO64) after firing up CSGO (Deathmatch, 1440p, high):
  • CPU (Tctl/Tdie): ~70°C (74°C with quieter profile)
  • Coolant: ~ 37°C (40°C with quieter profile)
  • GPU: ~82-86°C
  • GPU Hotspot: ~88-102°C
  • Motherboard: ~54°C (59°C with quieter profile)
I cannot use the Quiet Profile of the Corsair H100i anymore, as these temps ramp up the 2x Noctua A12x15 beyond 1470RPM, which is way too loud. CPU temp is good, only slightly above what I had in the NR200p (classic layout with 2x Noctua A12x25 on top for exhaust, radiator with slims on the side in intake mode).

GPU temps are a little bit concerning (?), as they increased about 9-10°C compared to the NR200p in classic layout (GPU fans facing towards bottom).
I noticed the case gets really hot, especially the GPU side towards the bottom, so maybe higher feet could help.

Do you have any experience or hints on how I could improve temps? Maybe even with the following things:
  • Undervolting
  • higher feet
  • fan position and orientation
  • cable cluttter (I ordered a J-Hack M2426, but this will take a while)

The radiator fans should be set to exhaust. That will likely help with your GPU thermals.

Undervolting will help for sure. I lowered the temps of my 2080 Super in my Ghost from 83C to 74C and noise levels are much better. Taller feet aren't going to do much since you don't have any bottom mounted fans. Changing the AIO fans to exhaust rather than intake will improve GPU temps but hurt CPU temps.

Does it make a difference, if the fans are on top or below the radiator?

@rfarmer the 6800 XT seems to exhaust a little bit to the bottom. In the NR200p in classic layout this would just blow to the side (at the ventilated panels). Here it blows towards the table basically.

Some have reported turbulence noise when the fans are below the radiator. It might be best to have them on top. It would also help if you route the tubes away from the fans/radiator as much as possible, but I'm not sure how feasible it is.

CPU temps could be lowered again by undervolting. @JDK Have a look at OT’s latest video:

* snip *

I love the Antec 300: just a basic mid-tower, but with a hint of elegance. Been trying to work out what the modern equivalent is.

I know this has probably been asked like a million times, but does anyone know when we could expect the V1.1 to be able to be ordered again? I'm looking forward to using this case for my new build 😎

That’s the plan
Could you please let me know the estimated shipping time of Dec 1-4 batch silver T1? I saw people who's in Dec 28-31 even early Jan got their titanium and black T1s. I need to change my shipping address if you cannot ship the case by the end of Jan but I don't know whether you will ship the case this or next week.

Finally started (slowly) building in my T1, but no rush since I'm waiting on more parts to arrive anyway.

Got a few questions you guys can maybe help me out with regarding custom cables. I'm going to order the J-HACK M2426 and just realised I can also buy custom cables over there.

1. I saw that the M2426 is on back order, does anybody have a rough estimate how long I'll have to wait for this part/cable?
2. What length you guys recommend for the CPU and GPU power cables? I'm going to be using the PSU in flipped rotation.

The answer to that can be found right above your question...

Settings the fans to exhaust and swapping one A12x15 to a A12x25 (even messier to build, as the A12x15 is in danger of touching the motherboard) lowered the temps a little (the smaller fan has a custom curve and the bigger one is on "quiet") and the case is sooo much cooler as well in exhaust. ^^

Again some CSGO (~30min Deathmatch, 1440p, high):
  • CPU (Tctl/Tdie): ~72°C
  • Coolant: ~ 37.5°C
  • GPU: ~77-82°C
  • GPU Hotspot: ~82-92°C
  • Motherboard: ~53°C
I am fine with those temps and noise is okay. We will see if a longer gaming session changes those, then I will try to undervolt a little bit.

Thanks for the help guys!

There's a super cheap coolermaster elite 120 on craigslist that i was going to buy as a stand-in case until the 2.0 releases but the poster wont email me back smh.

Anyone here in denver and have a cheap ass case to sell? could be convinced to pay for shipping if you're trying to offload a case. the cheaper the better lol i just want to get rid of my mid tower.

I don't think you understood me, I saw that they said it is gonna still be produced, but I wanted to know if there was a general timeline of when we could probably expect them to be restocked again, that's all lol.

Not sure how to read W360 his reply. Could also be that he meant that you will no longer be able to order a T1.
