Well it just so happens that I ordered an IS 60. SM550 is next up. Right now the only AM4 itx Board I have in hand is the Aorus B450i — so we can see how the 3600 on it now goes and for curiosity alone I’ll have to drop the 3900x in.Good experiment will be to check if IS60 could handle heat from R9 3900X..
Let us know what you will do at the end..
Ahah big thanks to you..Well it just so happens that I ordered an IS 60. SM550 is next up. Right now the only AM4 itx Board I have in hand is the Aorus B450i — so we can see how the 3600 on it now goes and for curiosity alone I’ll have to drop the 3900x in.
Ahhhhhhhhhhh....evga hadron...with their nasty and noisy PSU...Its a Hadron Air. I picked it up years ago with a bad PSU and i5 haswell build in it for cheap. Removed the PSU and HDD cage and SFX PSU goes in easy with clearance for reference length GPUs. Painted Stone Grey with Krylon brand spray paint. PSU is mounted by removing two of the fan screws and then screwing them back in from the front of the case. Faceplate of the case is removed as well as factory power button and USB. the power cord is a ninety degree plug to female c14 and is zip tied to the floor and accessed from the rear like the original. What is surprising is how big it looks next to the Cerberus X even though the Hadron is 16ish liters in volume. I am pretty pumped to get this system down to under 10 in the SM550.
I had to swap out the ram when the IS 60 was installed as the RipJaws are not happening clearance wise. The pic in the post above is with 16g of Team Dark Pro b-die with the top cap of the heat spreader removed. The IS 60 rests right up against those but fits just right.
Here is a pic before the CPU cooler swap.
What will become your allmighty Cerberus-X if your SM550 is becoming your main system?..The SM550 is ordered but no shipping email yet. I’m taking the plunge and making it my main system so probably sticking with the 3600 BUT will see how the 3900x fares on the Aorus B450 itx and IS 60 for science!
Hopefully this weekend or sooner.
Thanks a lot!Thank you for all your hard work and meticulous documentation. I have really enjoyed this thread. I was wondering if the ID cooling IS with a slim 15mm noctua fan would fit with a sm550 without the washer mod. On sligers website it says this cooler requires the vented panels.
In fact I also applied flat head screw on is-60, but I guess, washer mod is still needed.I can confirm that that IS 60 cooler with the Noctua slum fan does not fit the SM550 without the washer mod.
With the washers it just barely clears and fan turbulence from the panel vents is pronounced and noisy. I’m actually running without the side panel presently for this reason.
