I wouldn't recommend Metis anyone(unless you plan to mod the case) because thermal on this case is terrible. GPU will get hot(and loud) very easily due to lack of air intake, and the fact that GPU is mounted at the top of the case makes it even worse since hot air will just rise to the top.
Hi, got i7 5775C yesterday I was wondering if there are any ways to improve the performance on Iris Pro 6200.
I've increased "dedicated video memory" size in the BIOS and also changed the "power" settings in Graphics control panel to maximum performance after doing some google research. However...
Roughly how much performance increase do you get from i7 6700 setup over i7 4790 setup? 10-20% or more?
i.e. i7 4790(4GHz), Z97 mobo, 16GB DDR3 2400 vs i7 6700(4GHz), Z170 mobo, 16GB DDR4 2666
Price different between the two setup isn't much so it would really suck if your purchased new i7...
Found a smaller version of Antec ISK-110 case, InWin BQ695.
It's got 2x USB3 ports and also come with 150W(or 120W) Internal PSU, not bad.
Wow, that motherboard and a small case to go with that would be freaking awesome.
I really hope some decent case manufacturers gonna make the case for that mobo.
Does anyone know if that 5x5 mobo is socket 1150(DDR3) or 1151(DDR4)?
Hopefully it's 1150 so you can use the i7 5775C(with Iris Pro...
Because not everyone needs a gaming GPU in ITX system.
Intel NUC's performance is still relatively slow(compared to ITX) and NUC runs pretty hot and loud. (especially the i7 NUC thanks to the inadequate heatsink/fan used by Intel...
Cool thanks, I will once I get the Q21 case and GPU, unfortunately they are not available yet.
PC-Q21 case can support upto 6.5" GPU so GTX970/960 Mini will fit fine(R9 Nano is only 6") and case can support 120mm fan at the bottom. http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pc-q21
I just hope...
Depends on the CPU TDP and ITX case type.
I think Noctua NH-L9i would be perfect for Lian Li PC-Q21 case with 65W i5 6600 or i7 6700.
But Noctua NH-D9L would be ideal for Raijintek Metis case with 91W i5 6600K or i7 6700K.
What is the rough overall performance different between 4790K system and 6700K system? 10-20% or more?
i.e. 4790K, Z97 mobo, 16GB DDR3 2400 vs 6700K, Z170 mobo, 16GB DDR4 2400
cos it sucks if you bought 4790K system in past 2-3 weeks considering the price on 4790K setup and 6700K setup is very...
I think Nano should perform well cos it's virtually identical to R9 Fury X on the paper, and priced at US$650.
Q21 doesn't have any default intake fan, so it would be best to use the bottom HDD slot for 120mm fan instead if you are planning to use any gaming GPU. Q21 can still take another SSD...
Should be easy now with Lian Li PC-Q21 and AMD Radeon R9 Nano! :cool:
What do you think?
e.g. I made two diff specs using the latest Socket 1151
Spec 1 = bang for buck, still high 3D performance
Spec 2 = $ is no issue
CPU: Intel i5 6600 (65W)
HSF: Noctua NH-L9i
Thanks for the replies.
No gaming is not a high priority, but I still wouldn't mind putting the best single slot GPU for the case if possible, or maybe even a dual slot card with aftermarket cooler etc.
But maybe I should start looking for a single slot 750Ti or 670.
5775C isn't a bad idea but...
