There is some technique as the two tabs on the one side of the fan mount have to line up with the rectangle holes found in the chassis. If it's a tighter fit than normal, then the difficulty of lining these up would increase. I would practice without any fans on first. Try to insert the fan mount as vertical as physically possible. You will be constrained by round permanent PEM nuts on one side, and by the front flange on the other side. Hopefully that makes sense. I will try to provide an illustration once I'm back at work on Monday.
Do you have the MSI RX560 low profile? If so did you figure out the fan profile/noise? I was looking at the same card for a hackintosh build as well. If the fan noise is too loud I might try the WX4100 which is pretty much the same card just 5% slower.Excited to see it!
Mine comes Tuesday, but I'm not sure I'll be using it now..
I've had an issue with my Hackintosh build plans in that the RX 560 Low Profile I have, that I was going to use in the Lone, doesn't ever go below 30% (2800rpm) - sucks..
in Windows I can custom curve it lower, but not on MacOS side sadly (which would be what I would use 100% of the time on a Lone build with it.
I don’t it have anymore no, sorry.Do you have the MSI RX560 low profile? If so did you figure out the fan profile/noise? I was looking at the same card for a hackintosh build as well. If the fan noise is too loud I might try the WX4100 which is pretty much the same card just 5% slower.
Ordered my L5 yesterday. Looking forward to this build.
I guess I'll just have to give it a shot. I'll try replacing the thermal paste and tweaking the front fan for more intake.I don’t it have anymore no, sorry.
I did find it annoyingly loud because it’s one of those cards that never shuts down or idles.
Depending on where you keep your case relative to your sitting position, your mileage may vary.
I had even looked at getting a passive GPU cooler for it and just working with the airflow coming through the case from the front through the back.

Did you happen to find any passive coolers that would fit? I couldn't find anything helpful in 30 minutes of googling.
Kind, but it’s the case + sunlight doing all the work!You certainly have an eye for photography. Beautiful composures!
Do it! If you're not picky about performance, you can limit the TDP of most chips to fall within the rating of the heatsink—otherwise, if you have even a bit of air moving across it, it sounds like it can easily manage 65W.I’m really tempted by that Alpine passive. I already have a L9i otherwise... I wonder what the noise differences under load will be.
I haven't heard of anyone myself.I know it's not supported, but it appears there is technically room - has anyone tried putting a Meanwell in one of the L5's yet? I just got a (small) raise at work and I feel like I've got $130 burning a hole in my pocket.
Also, Lone would you ever consider a revision with more ventilation on the GPU side? Maybe something twice as long front/back?
