Yeah 1/16" is the right thickness.totalElement neodymium block magnets: 1/2" Width x 1/2" Length x 1/16" Thickness. Wholesale/volume discounts available. Free US shipping $10+totalelement.com
Would these magnets work? I'm thinking of getting them but haven't had time to measure the thickness of the original magnets since I've been gone, and wanted them to arrive when I get back into town. Could someone check for me
Yeah, Reddit has a bunch of rules about self promotion and SFFpc/hardware are pretty strict about it.Please note that I consciously try not post too much on reddit, and to let the community have their discussions, unless there is specific requests directed to u/nouvolo. You can see the lack of posts from all other vendors also, at least official ones.
Honestly, I think you'd see better cooling performance and next to no audible difference out of a true SFX and then a 120x25mm fan below it. The silverstone SFX-L is great if you pull it apart and replace the fan with a better 120mm fan, but in the 2 builds I've put together with them, the fan started to rattle about its baring after 3-4 months. Maybe they've since fixed the spotty QA on them as it was when they first launched, but since you can get SFX in up to 700W platinum, I haven't gone back to silverstones SFX-L line.I like the idea of the larger fan and also the cheaper cost tbh, but I'm not sure if the fitment will be possible or if there are any other downsides?
If you really must have a 120mm fan on your PSU, I've only heard good things about the Seasonic SGX line. Its fan has a true FDB, so it should hold up better than Silverstones sleeve baring. It also happens to be a few mm shorter in depth.
