Think it was 300w? I'm definitely looking to go this route, it looks/fits great
edit: is there any purpose to having the 10mm fan on the psu other than aesthetics? guessing it's basically a designated cooling solution for the psu?
Hi ! I'm new to sff, and the lone L5 looks very appealing and suitable for my need.
While waiting for its availibilty (and new AMD ryzens with 65W TDP), I've been researching for a while and I have a few questions for advanced enthousiasts here.
Thanks in advance for any help and tips.
- The zotac 1650 LP is not available at the moment in the country where I live (Japan) but there is here an MSI GeForce GTX 1650 4GT LP whith a height of 37mm. The MSI is not mentionned on the compatibillity list of the L5, unlike the Zotac 1650 (34mm height) and the MSI 1050 (35 mm height). Is it because it's slightly higher or would it fit ?
- I didn't find any build examples with previous versions of Lone and ryzen cpus. Is there a reason for that, like heat dissipation problem or PSU compatibility ?
- PicoPSU 160-XT being easily available on Amazon, it sounds a good option for me with an external brick. But I wonder if it would be powerful enough for a 65W TDP CPU with a 75W TDP GPU like the 1650. I've seen some 1650 bench where the total system power consumption would reach 214 Watts (https://www.anandtech.com/show/14270/the-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1650-review-feat-zotac/15)
- The new Scythe Big Shuriken 3 is not mentionned on the compatibility list of the L5. It seems OK to me since its measurements 122(W) × 69(H) × 122(D) are smaller that the Noctua NH-L12S 128(W) × 70(H) × 146(D), but shape is quite different. Any clue ?
Woops, sorry, my mistake !The "height" there is actually the width. Will fit no problem.
Woops, sorry, my mistake !
Anyway, thanks a lot for all your answers, I feel more confident to try this.
About Scythe, they are made in Japan, where I live, and therefore easily available and almost half cheaper than imported Noctua for me. I've been using bigger models from them on my desktops for years and they perform great.
There is an interesting review/comparison on BS3 vs other low profile coolers on Optimum tech :
One more question. Can this 4pin miniDIN to miniFIT-JR adapter ( http://www.mini-box.com/4pin-miniDIN-miniFIT-JR-adapter ) be mounted without mod to the Lone L5 ?
News for you! I've did the same test without the top cover, and actually the temp was better only of 2 degree on the CPU! It stay stable at 89 degrees after 30 minutes.@fabio Thanks the for the test results! Looks like the temps are stable. Not sure if they could be better or not. I'd be curious to see what temps are stressed without the case cover on as a baseline. If you haven't already, you could also try flipping the NH-L12S fan to see if there's any difference. Does the G-Unique AC-DC PSU get warm or hot?
I've received the new Supermicro Z390
Suddenly there is something in the G-Unique that doesn't allow the system to start. Then, I think that also it was the cause for the system instability with the previous motherboard.
With the new one, it seems that the system get power, but after half second everything goes down, and even the 24pin G-unique has anymore the blue light on.
Maybe is some protection that the Supermicro has; I had a similar issue with another G-unique and the ASrock Z390 Phantom ITX. The same config was working perfectly with a GIgabyte and an Asus.
OR, maybe is something with the EU 220AC?
Anyway, come back to the trusted HDplex 160W! And a few new things:
I've painted the green aluminum riser in black
I've changed the fan for x2 SilentWings 2, to check if the noise is better than the NoiseBlocker
Swapped the Quadro with an Asus 1050 TI, WITHOUT FANS - passive!
This stay on the 50 degrees while 3D Modeling! and Pass the FurMark preset with a max temp of 72 degrees - fan BIOS settings as "Quiet".
IF I see it will get to hot I will put its heatsink on the Quadro, and that's it!
Actually now I am curious to get one of the 1650 LP to see how it runs in passive mode!
