yes indeed...it will be perfect timing for second run of this excellent game...testing improved riser airflow (and maybe tweak cpu...if time allows..)..This video shows another reason to just turn off depth of field / motion blur. --> Better image quality and more frames.
PS: Wow, that hit on translucent reflections is insane.
Thanks..Awesome and wholesome report of this tweak! I like it, especially with the pictures showing everything in detail. Those results are better than i expected; I didn't compare it side by side. Also those tapes look much better than cable ties.
It's nice to see that the IS-"74" Evo is doing magic in your Conswole as well.
PS: I wonder if you did check out AMDs PBO2 feature, undervolting the voltage curve? It looks like it uses a pretty high voltage for the clock speed. You might squeeze out a bit more performance while maintaining the same power target and temperature.
(I'm running the 5800X at less than 100 W, until i got my SF750). It peaks at 4850 MHz with no additional overclock.
Well you are right..psu is exhausting towards gpu but also back exhaust fans.Did you also check the difference between certain vertical orientations?
Btw. the orientation of the power supply is really strange. I'd prefer to have it exhaust upwards. Away from the GPU. Not towards it.
I didn't fix it. It's fixed by pressure.
Ok thanks a lot. Not so great fixing mechanics.I didn't fix it. It's fixed by pressure.
The distance between the SF450 and the cover plate is around 26 mm. The NF-A14x25 fits just fine if you mount the Standard plastic dampeners. NF-A12x25 should be fine, too.
The fan should make hot-air Recycling harder, at least for the PSU. But your hot graphics card won't like it much. Once my SF750 arrives, i'll have a look at the mounting mechanism again. It really is dumb to have it blast the hot air towards the GPU.
PS: The USB-Header cable does also provide some support for the fan.
Well thanks again for your support.The 3090 is one hot beast to tame!
There are still some things to try, but the airflow management is likely the "problem" here. In a next revision of this case the position of the air-removal fans should be considered.
While intake is huge with the complete side-panel inhaling, the exhaling seems to pose a problem. Maybe there is some hot air recycling going on. PSU fires into the direction of the GPU. Especially in your case, with only the one GPU fan, it might just exhaust through the front and get back into the GPU.
Otherwise, with the big fan on top of the PSU, it might even provide some cooler air for the GPU now.
On the one hand, the design of the case seems to fit very good to the FE, with intake on the front panel and output on the other side.
On the other hand it might still be better to have two fans providing cool air to card, forcing the hot air out somewhere else than the front panel.
Also I still think it would be better to have the PSU blast upwards. Would need some modding though, since the cable looks to be too short.
Additionally some more mesh on the 80 mm thin top side would help (80 mm fan location?).
PS: I removed the rubber corner on my IS-60 NF-A12x25 fan and it was just enough to not make contact with the case. Also used the short screws provided with the cooler. Had to enlarge the upper holes by drilling though, to fit the screwdriver through that hole.
At this moment I'm just glad i see someone else optimizing this case. Cause I'll stick with it. It's optimal for my use case.Well thanks again for your support.
I'll continue experiments with RTX 3090 FE inside CL530. After I cannot also forget results from Cerberus-X...so cool & quiet..
CL530 is exhausting well hot air as temperatures are decreasing pretty fast once load is gone.
Fingers crossed that my current CL530 setup will last..
Your welcome, thanks to you too.At this moment I'm just glad i see someone else optimizing this case. Cause I'll stick with it. It's optimal for my use case.
Can't wait to receive my SF750, which has been postponed to the end of March again, yesterday.
