    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    You can see on the Arctic webpage what you'd normally need: What I've used is basically the long screws, some of the washers and the nuts, along with some spacers.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    My solution is based on my card, a reference Radeon 290X. It's by no means a universal solution and I have no experience with a GTX 960. My 290X can consume up to 275W of power, a GTX 960 is about half that, so I wouldn't expect the VRM part to need the heatsinks. I ran without for a while until...

    For my 290X, I got this kit, which fits nicely with the Arctic Accelero Xtreme kit: GELID Solutions > Products

    Not really, since it was never cooled in its original state. Most times, the memory chips will suffice without cooling. The VRM heatsinks are important though.

    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    Yeah but it's still just a Realtek ALC 1150 chip and the Realtek drivers alone also works, but not the headphone amplification detection. Or atleast I don't remember it working correctly. I don't use any of the other software, just the modified Realtek driver Asus provides.

    I have an Asus VII Impact, like it says in my signature below my posts.

    PCIE Bifurcation

    I often respond about Cerberus questions but I'm in no way involved in the design or manufacturing of the Kimera Cerberus, except for my unending whining about the red color scheme.

    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    When I insert my headphones into a connector with amplification (on my board specifically the front port through header) it brings up a dialog box asking me what type of output device it is. If I choose "headphones", it will do an impedance check (and pop loudly). So if you don't have this kind...

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Generally stacked fans don't work together because they're all limited by the lowest pressure/airflow of the bunch. You could certainly use the two Noctua fans "solo", I did with my card and it performs well when I changed them to exhaust (out the bottom) so heat doesn't go into the case. I used...

    How good is Freesync LFC (Low Framerate Compensation)?

    I have the Acer XR341CK with a FreeSync range of 30-75Hz I believe and LFC support. You do notice when it goes below 30Hz but it's not that your screen will be flickering, just a dropped frame or two. I haven't witnessed without LFC yet, but I've read it starts to insert BLANK signals showing as...

    NCASE M1 version changelog and suggestions thread

    True, it's also just my opinion on the matter. I just don't want people to think the holes are an aesthetic feature, but an integral part of the case ventilation. I don't know if Necere or anyone else made a direct comparison, also because you'd use different coolers for both scenarios. Still...

    NCASE M1 version changelog and suggestions thread

    When you said "a tiny bit", auto-correct suggested you mean "a whole lot". Without that side panel perforation, top-down CPU heatsinks are generally not going to perform well and you miss the only good spot to mount two fans if you are using a full size GPU. Considering most people use...
