That looks awesome! Did G-Unique make both the plug-in unit and the AC-DC unit?Brickless is live!
I had a little happy accident. G-Unique case was about 1mm too wide. I ran it under some orbital sander, slipped and messed up his case, sorry. 3D printed another one that covers the sides of the fan, also used the L5 holes for the vent. Printed the bottom lid, but meh, too much work. This will do. The 3d print is 1mm too small everywhere. A lot of post processing to do, and I have problem sanding things flat... Might revise it and reprint it later. or @Lone can make a new enclosure in metal.
I need a better 80x10 fan, this one is humming a lot. (GDSTIME Quiet 80mm Fan from Amazon)
Oh ya... ordered some bullet connectors for the power supply. The GX12 plug are mounted inside, lol. Figured out when I solder everything.
The clearance is so satisfying
- GTX1650 LP (or waiting for ti)
- Noctua NH-L12S with black chromax fans
I use silicone fan mounts, but they do require about 1mm extra clearance. For example:I've been playing Doom 2016 on the machine. It's on the default settings, but it's butter smooth.
The noiseblocker blockers are ironically loud. I've ordered some NF-A8 PWM Chromax fans. Does anyone know what screws to use to mount them to the case?
I always have good results with Noctua.Good news. I got the 25mm NF-A8's to fit with the HDPLEX 200W. The fans are very very quiet!
I think with a (slim) fan blowing on the HDPlex with or without a heatsink would be more than enough air to keep it cool. Especially if the other case fan slot is populated by a full thickness fan there should be more than enough airflow.I always have good results with Noctua.
I wonder if the 24pin ATX connector position (relative to the edge) varies from one motherboard to another. That HDPLEX is just 1-2 mm too wide. I wish HDPLEX could figure out how to make it slimmer. Realistically, I will probably have to just make the L5 a little bigger, or decrease the clearance between the fan mount and the front.
It would also be interesting to know how well the HDPLEX stays cool with the outer heatsink removed in the L5.
No problem, if you do consider doing a sandwich case at some point I'm with the others on design language. Looks like the L5 on the outside, but with a mini itx gpu sandwich setup on the inside.Thanks for the info!
I would consider that, but only if I decided to expand this hobby.
