    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

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

    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 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...

    Before asking NCASE about Micro-ATX...

    I see his point: keeping support for "obselete" standard hardware keeps people supporting it too, making it a long endeavour. This might be OK for standard ATX behemoths, where recently cases have begun excluding multiple 5,25" as-standard. It's the same with ATX and SFX PSUs: 99,99% would be...

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    Personally, I'm excited about the SX800-LTI since it again raises the SFX bar, which the SX700-LPT just did a moment ago. But I am curious why the extra time is needed for development. Not that I don't see the use for it, I'm curious what Silverstone is doing to go the extra mile. The SX700-LPT...

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

    Necere : with the Kabuto II end-of-life and the new Kabuto III soon available, might it be a good fit ? It seems to be a few mm larger and a few mm offset but 2 mm reduced height, so I would expect it to fit. Since it's one of the better choices when using an ATX PSU or the HDD bracket, it seems...

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    Than I don't get why he used that argument against Meaker, since Lian-Li beat the SX700-LPT and the platform the SX800-LTi is based on, to market. If he just wanted to point out that there was more fine-tuning and certification needing to be done, he should have just said that. The world...

    3 Slot "MATX" motherboard in Ncase M1

    It's a server board (x minutes boot time, most basic set of ports) focused on storage, if RAM is the only limitation you have, it's a lot of compromise just for that.

    SilverStone SX800-LTI 800W Titanium SFX-L

    There are more GPUs than just the GTX 1080, like the "GTX 1080 Ti" that is undoubtibly going to launch after the "New GTX Titan" launches which will both probably use more than 180W. We're also not sure what AMD has planned for us soon and early 2017. You think it's strange that SFX PSUs are...

    SilverStone SX800-LTI 800W Titanium SFX-L

    You should want a higher efficiency on higher wattage because of temperature and power consumption being scaled in percentages. 800W PSU with >94% (Titanium) efficiency at 50% load (400W) means a maximum of 24W heat output or AC overhead. 800W PSU with >90% (Gold) efficiency at 50% load (400W)...

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

    This. All open-air cooler GPU cards dump all their heat inside the case and without fans forcing it out (side-panel fans as exhaust) it will heat up the GPU and CPU making them both perform less. The previous generation reference cooler on the GTX 980 and 980 Ti was already one of the better...

    I like both designs, very nicely done overall with unique details. If the quality of the materials is good, I'd might pick up the cylindrical one.

    Silverstone SX500-LG 500W Gold SFX-L

    I have had an i5-4670K, Radeon R9 290X (275W consumption), SSD, watercooling pump and two 120mm fans for about a year on a 450W PSU that was modded with a slower fan than comes standard. It worked without a problem, unless I put a very restrictive filter over the PSU and it couldn't cool itself...

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

    Blower cooler GPUs exhaust the heat out of the back, while open coolers exhaust inside your case making recycling warm air possible. The open air cooler recycling problem is solved by reversing the fans (if using custom coolers like Arctic Accelero Extreme) and exhausting it through the bottom...

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

    I'm not affiliated with Ncase but I'd like to point out some aspects why this isn't an easy choice. Quantities: keep in mind that MOQs (Minimum Order Quantities) are a very important aspect in manufacturing that means the difference between not possible and viable. Some fabrication procedures...

    In what aspect do you see the Caselabs BH4 or BH2 as response to the Ncase M1, I see zero resemblance of any kind. It is however a compact mATX case but a totally different design and layout.

    ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac

    Most television screens have dynamic contrast, dynamic motion compensation and other "dynamic" stuff. But often, these work by processing a bunch of frames in advance and giving a lot of input lag in the process. Not something you'd notice with video, but you would with a PC. Some monitors could...

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    It depends on what you need and how optimistic you are. The Corsair SF600 has already had a bunch of reviews showing it is a very goo SFX PSU. The Silverstone SX700-LPT is an SFX-L PSU (slightly longer) with 100W more power and a 80+Platinum rating. If 550-600W is what your components need, I'd...

    It's not the screen with "dynamic this and that" features enabled ? I don't see how this board could cause this though, but it does have that HDMI passthrough thingie.

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

    I can't say what works better, but not all radiators will fit on the bottom, so you might need to use fans on the case floor anyway.

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

    Although not very comparable, with air-cooling I have witnessed the same in the Ncase M1: side as intake, bottom as exhaust performs best.

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

    Are you saying that a watercooling loop will scale with waterflow ? Your phrasing insinuates a more powerful pump will make the entire loop perform better in a likewise scale, but that's not true. In a PC case, airflow is important, not pos/neg pressurizing your case. You get airflow with the...

    I'd like to read those reviews, maybe they were used in motherboards that don't support 1.35V DDR3 memory, but it's still working perfectly two years later, as it should. I don't have watercooling anymore, I went to aircooling when my GPU block leaked and never looked back.
