    Could a video card work perfectly for everything but fail in VR?

    I've replaced the cable on my Vive several times by now. Color artifacts would be pronounced in dark screens/areas, and intermittant blackscreens, this is a dying cable. It wouldnt freeze my system though.

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Yep almost Titanium, and the Gold is almost Platinum. I would start with the root cause and work your way from there. Thus highest efficiency possible depending on your budget constraints and sensitivity to emitted sound. I don't quite get your reasoning though, when you mention allocating...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    No direct vs eachother, but Johnyguru has pretty in-depth reviews of both. You can compare the reviews as they follow the same structure, in particular the load testing results. He does refer to the gold in the platinum review to some degree...

    Any thoughts on the MJOLNIR?

    Good find. The more I look at it the more impressed i am. Its kinda an A4+. Between A4 and what the C4 was trying to be. A good alternative possibly if you're dying to have windows. For me not the case, then there isn't much additional to sway me over from my A4. Aesthetically still regard the...

    Corsair SF600 600w SFX Powersupply

    Similar system in DAN A4 (with 1080). The cpu cooler is definitely much louder. I think the 90mm case fan i have under the cpu is still louder than the PSU fan. I'll keep an eye out at which load the fan starts spinning. But all in all i'm really happy with this purchase, coming from the...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    ~4650 region i recall. 3700x / Asus B450 itx / NH-L9A going to 95degC near the end of the test. PBO is off, no OC.

    The state of VR - Lost it's steam?

    Yep, correct. Have 2 Gear VR's collecting dust.The quoted figures and source quite old (2016 sales). The Gear VR was bundled with phones so skewing the numbers. But don't consider "Gear VR" true VR, and as said after a few tries most people lay them away. Friends and family members all saw the...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    My 2c. Just did a build with the 3700x and NH-L9A (and Asus B450). So even the TDP is just "65W" in practice its still quite a hot chip difficult too cool well. I've re-seated my cooler 4 times to try different amount of thermal paste and techniques. The rice grain in the middle didnt work that...

    3900X Temperature Reading Help!

    Yup heard the same, Ryzen Master is the one to use. Have the same issues, even higher reported temps with my 3700x (hitting 95C in Cinebench :S)

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    I don't think it will fit with the backplate offset like that. There is only space for the PCIE riser itself, not much else. Bit of a strange design from Zotac, unfortunate for our case's gpu layout. I'm sure you can remove the backplate without much problem, but you might need new screws.

    SFF in a big rig??? :eek:

    Your budget constraints and game types you intend to play would be helpful additional info. Hades Canyon NUC, with Vega M GH is quite capable. It comes to about 75% of the GPU power of the RX580. (Quick check on GPU boss, so big grain of salt). I was looking into it a portable VR capable...

    R5 1600 going to bottleneck a Rift S?

    Question, is it using all six cores "equally" utilized? Or you see the last two cores at a marked lower percentage than the first two? And "not breaking a sweat", means what? ~60% ?

    PC Deidicated For VR Gaming

    Ah I was going to reply why use VM would only complicate matters, your requirements do jump around the board, so no PC after all then. And would second/third the comments not to go cheap on GFX card. To note your current is quite capable of VR. Havent tried the Quest, what i've read its...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Anticipating my V4 from SFFlab. Just to note, it's being held at Belgian customs because no invoice information provided from "Taiwan". The BelgianPost import division wrote me a letter about this, and I provided the necessary info in return (Declaration form and invoice/receipt copy). If...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    It's just fastening clips, RMA seems a very overkill process. Let alone bothering to reach Dan for this. I broke one of these clips trying to pry it out of my Ncase because of space needed for a tall Gfx card. 5 clip sets in stock at overclockers (female side should fit)...
