I've just ordered a ASUS X570 Crosshair VIII Impact M-DTX-Mainboard along with an AMD Ryzen R9 3900x.. all that's missing now is the beautiful machone including the announced m-dtx support <3
really hope 2020 is the year when it finally arrives!
Maybe next month I can show what I want to do with the MachOne execution.
Love the design. Hope it would release in 2020. Will definitely grab one.
Btw, I have few questions regarding to cooling performance based on the air cooling layouts:
1. Would CPU always intake hot air from front GPU if the air pressure is from front to back in Gear One layout? Since the side panel is not perforated, it seems like it could potential blowing hot air from GPU to the CPU, and CPU cannot intake any cool fresh air.
2. Most GPUs are now open-air. Would it cause cyclic hot air between GPU and front case fan in Gear Two?
1. it's a problem with prototype design, so I added fan mounting next to motherboard in my latest iteration (not shown).
2. it's a problem with prototype design, adding fans next to motherboard in my latest iteration is my attempt to address this problem.
I'm not working on the large Mach One at the moment. I'm working on a smaller one first.
