Did a HTPC/on-the-go build in the HT5. It's got big shoes to fill as it's essentially replacing my NCASE air travel rig, but so far the portability is wonderful.

CPU: Ryzen 4650G
Cooler: NH-L9x65
Board: B550I Aorus Pro AX
RAM: Patriot Viper Steel 4133CL19 @ 4000 16-16-16 or 4200 17-18-18 depending on where I am
Storage: 256GB PM981
PSU: HDPlex 200W AC-DC + 200W DC-ATX, mounted with 3M tape
Fans: 2 x NF-A8



Tried using a NH-L12S but the fan pushes against the rear I/O shroud and it can't fit in the other orientation because HDPlex. A8s are quiet at higher speeds but the L9x65 is a lil louder than I remember my first one from 2015 was.

I honestly wish I could get a side panel with a 92mm-sized cutout so I can use one of my much better 25mm NF-A9s instead of the NF-A9x14 on the L9x65. I only need 3mm more.

Kevin (@K888D) can whip up a custom side panel for you if you want. I've ordered two so far, one with my original purchase and one later :p Didn't charge much for it either!

Oh, and I just realized that you must be Tabascosauz from over on TPU :p Welcome, I guess! This also reminds me that I have to actually get my own build log done, or at least post some pics of the finished build. I'm still waiting on one of my custom side panels (sadly seems to have gotten lost in shipping; I blame Covid and Brexit), but the current state of affairs is still pretty good.
