Thanks for sharing your findings.
- Great choice of a case. And very fine writeup. Seeing that you struggle with the backplate and temperatures, I may have two ideas of improvement for you.
Regarding the airflow from the "blocked" fan: I went with this mod, where you basically cut the two connecting tapes of the riser und arrange two lines behind each other. I tried to put three lines into one, but that was too much pressure on the fan cover and made the fan blades hit the cover.

And regarding air flow in general. There is this huge inlet on the front cover which isn't used by anything...
And since I happened to have an NF-A14 PWM lying around i just went on. Guess what fits between the SF450 and the metal cover of the case just perfectly?
If you use the anti vibration pads on both sides, it just fits by pressure. Not worrying pressure in any way.
I hope these ideas can help you a bit with your little temperature problem.
Thanks for advice on riser. I’ll definitely check it.There is also the Louqe MKIII PCIe 4.0 Riser.
It has no ribbon Cable, instead it uses seperate Twinax cables. Much better for thermals, should allow free Airflow.
And thanks for bringing the heatissue to the Table, i never thought about Riser temps - will place a Tempsensor behind my RX6800 to monitor it
yes thanks!Strange, works for me.
Can you at least see the picture now?
Similar single wire riser like Louqe version. It should definitely help cooling.
I know length for sliger riser : 25cm
How to select angle for riser?
I've seen mention of left angle or reversed. What version should I look for CL530?
Louqe version remains the best version for aircooling. However it's only in straight angle, not compatible with CL530.
Thanks for sharing it!So after all this talking i was motivated to make my riser great again. And do it right.
Much better than before.
