Nothing decided yet, CL530 is still in active service.Na, this thing is too big. I started my ITX-experience with considering this thing, but it's just a small ATX-case if you ask me. I mean, it can fit a NH-D15 if you mod it a bit.
Regarding current use: I'm still waiting for my SF750...
GG..Finally the wait is over: SF750 arrived. Like 3-4 months after i ordered it. But it's here now!
For sure, update bios will force gen 4 pcie...for compatible mb... Hopefully my B450-i is only gen 3...so no issue for me..I have to check if ASUS provided the BIOS for the GPU yet.
Actually, I'm a bit afraid to do it: I hope this doesn't activate PCIe4.0 again. Then i would've to tear it all apart :/
How did your BIOS update work?
Regarding PSU position:
Yeah, your 3090 is 61 mm tall. Mine is just 52 mm.
The only chance I see to make it fit is to use an additional spacer between the PSU and the PSU bracket. If you lift it by a centimeter or more, it should fit.
It should however help a lot since your card doesn't exhale sidewards.
Great news if it's working on Gen 4 with Gen 3 riser..I did update it, after I told me that I got a whole weekend for any fixes. But it just works at 4.0 now in Windows now. Which is awesome, since it is only the 3.0 riser.
Have to check it in games later.
PS: ASUS didn't release the necessary update yet it seems. Still no rBAR, after MB BIOS update and installing the correct driver. Quite a shame, i wanted to take the additional frames in Horizon Zero Dawn.
Well they are staying lit after computer is turn off..Why do you want to do this? Are they to shiny?
Gotcha, you are creating offset with wood pieces in order for PSU to receive more cool air from top fan.Ok, mine doesn't show LEDs when it is off. Such things would annoy me too.
But back to the old topic:
During sleeping, i had some ideas about tinkering again. These (possible) bad things about the mod had to be erased.
The solution: Wooden spacers and more zipties:
Before (SF750 in 180° direction, on its original place)
After (SF750 in 180° direction, moved up by 2.5 cm)
It cannot be seen very good, but this really opened a lot of breathing space. And it got another benefit which wasn't even planned:
--> The lower part of the NF-A14 now additionally pushes cold air into this compartment. At the moment he is additionally mounted even a tad lower. Win-Win I'd say!
Update on Risers, performance values and BIOS update:
- I had to revert to PCIe 3.0 because the graphics card wasn't recognized occasionally in windows
- Graphics card is now running at 2040 MHz @ 0.987 V and 8150 MHz. This wasn't possible with the SF450.
- CPU is now fixed at a maximum TDP of 105 W with PBO undervolt of -15. It could run a higher TDP, but that's just generating too much noise for the small improvement in performance.
I fully agree about SF750..it delivers what promised, quietly.It actually is meant for the GPU to have more breathing space due to all the cables lingering around between PSU and GPU.
And additionally this warm air area gets more pressure and cold air from the fan ontop the PSU.
(I think it would now fit to bigger GPU as well )
Yes, the SF750 really is awesome. The fan isn't even running outside games.
