I was debating this myself - my build is almost identical - but I waited until it was finished to see how thermals were.Hi
Looking to pick up a Velka 3 shipped to the UK.
How essential are the case fans?
Planned build is Silverstone 350W Flex w/ 3600 and RTX 2060, with M2 SSD + possibly 2x additional SSDs. Wondering if can get away without (can go none-NVME M2 to keep temperatures down).
So, where are the pics? Also, mind sharing your setup?Well... It's been 10 hours after the case arrived... I got off the work and started assembling the case... It took me nearly 2 hours to complete it since I'm not used to build mini itx PC's... This is my first one, and all I can say it, this case is worth every penny, every spent minute to assemble!!!
I have never seen a better or smaller case, yet that poweful. All praises go to @VELKASE Michael the creator of the case.
Well done and good job Michael, keep up the good work!
What cooler are you using on the 3600?I was debating this myself - my build is almost identical - but I waited until it was finished to see how thermals were.
My Ryzen 3600 runs around 60C under (actual) heavy load, maxed around ~70C in Prime95 benchmark... switching to "Quiet" cooling profile on my motherboard showed negligible changes in temperature, but noise dropped to almost inaudible (I'm about 3ft away from the case). NVMe runs cool - but my motherboard is the ASUS B450-I which has a heat sink for one of the m.2 slots.
YMMV if you plan for using any other processor, but I don't think I'm going to install case fans in this one. I am leaving that space open though, which might be helping with the thermals.
Currently I needed to open one of the side because still I have 3.5 " disks.Amazing stuff! Can you post pics once you assemble the case? I will do so as well. I'm surprised that there aren't any youtube reviews on Velka 3/5/7 cases yet.
The only review I saw is from the old case Velka M.
Any chance you could share any more details or photos of the motherboard IO shield issue?...
3700x + Cryorig C7G + Aorus x570
And, when you assemble the case if you have x570,
1) IO shield on the X570 is not detachable, and the case is slightly not fit with X570 io panel but somehow you can put it.
It is possible.Do you think it could be earlier then the date you have written on your site? "Expected ship date: October 23 "
I'll post them today once I get off the work .. I wasn't home for the weekend. The case and thermals are amazing.So, where are the pics? Also, mind sharing your setup?
The possibility of support for DC-ATX power supplies with external AC-DC adapters and 2 mm extra maximum graphics card length. There will not be any changes to existing features or the current appearance of the case yet.I see we're on rev 1.2 for Velka 3 - what changes can we expect ??
The NH L9a; as far as I'm aware that's the only heatsink that will fit in the VK-3. I currently have overclock disabled in mine, what about yours?What cooler are you using on the 3600?
My temps have not been so great with 3600 and Black Ridge set up to exhaust. I'm about to switch the fan to intake to see how that helps my temps. I'm getting temps in the mid 80's in the VK-5 with my setup current setup. I know it isn't the case because I've gotten the same results in another case with several case fans.
