The FPS have ranged between 14-31, but on average they mostly stayed around 15-17.

As Settings i use: the standard
Preset: Custom
API: DirectX 11
Quality: High
Stereo 3D: Disabled
Monitors: Single
Anit-alising: Off
Full Screen: On
Resolution: System

If you want me to set specific settings let me know.

Are you at 1440p? Usually I test at 1080p, higher resolution and the fps is too low to glean much info. The other settings look the same as mine. Press F9 and it'll show you results at the end of the loop

Here's mine at stock iGPU and 3200CL16, hopefully as apples-to-apples as possible

Also stock iGPU with 1080p and 3200CL16:

Interesting. I had a similar 3-4fps average drop going to F13 at identical settings (46.1 F13 vs 49.9 F13l), but it doesn't tell the whole story as there's at least one dip in every scene (fps drops like crazy then rebounds quickly within the same second). Did you notice any fluctuations in the fps counter during the test? In scene two there's always a one-time ~5fps drop as camera crests the hill, but aside from that fps should be relatively smooth

I was wondering if the small distance between the CPU cooler and the two front case fans would negatively affect the airflow. I mean that this blows away the air which flows from the CPU cooler to the bottom a little bit.

What are your opinions?

I don't believe this is an issue. The case fans help to reduce and maintain stable temperatures.

Has anyone tried running an AMD Ryzen 7 5900X in a Lone L5 along with the G-Unique Arch Daemon DC-ATX and Adapter Technology ATS200T-P120?

Cooler under 70mm? NH-L12S will throttle a 142W 5900X if you use it for its intended content creation purposes. I already get similar temps on just my L12 Ghost S1 as you do on your AXP100 copper, so I'm pretty sure the L12S is as good as it gets.

Eco Mode 5900X would be no problem for that power brick, but at that point, you're really not getting what you paid for. A stock or CO-undervolted 5900X runs 80-100W already under just 1- or 2-core gaming loads, so running Eco Mode or capped PPT will affect all-round performance, not just MT loads.

Maybe if your sole objective is r/sffpc e-peen

Hi,

There is currently no ETA. During the winter months I tend to have more time, so maybe winter 2022.
Do you think you can work on a variation of the L5 with a Flex ATX PSU fitted into the GPU space? I saw you've already considered fitting an HDPLEX 400W HiFi DC-ATX instead of a GPU and some Flex ATX PSUs are pretty much the same size. It's just that the behind panel where the GPU sticks out should be redesigned to a single wider outlet instead of the current two narrow ones and with the holes to screw the PSU.
If you think this is doable, I would rather wait for it even though the rest of my hardware is already ready. There are not that many small form factor cases for an APU out there. Especially one that can house a big CPU cooler. Everyone's just interested in gaming PCs!
Thanks

I'm not really doing anymore computer case design at this time.
