I play all the time on the weekend. I kinda wish I have gotten the rtx 2070 super for higher performance in fps and my streams. But the 2060 super is perfect for price to performance on the budget. So this is what I am using. So far it has been great. Great temps too!
That idk. Everything is plugged in. I did request pre-length cables for the Dan case. It's similar length to pslate cables.
It worked when I set it up.
I got them from bykski. They're normal length similar to Corsair but cut short length.
No problem :)
That sounds like a huge performance hit. :/
Thank you and me too!
Yes I did. But I won't be putting a 3900x...maybe the 3900 non x haha
Because I use the nvenc encoder for streaming. Otherwise I would love to get the 5700 xt sapphire pulse. The amd encoder from their GPU are not very optimized for streaming and still needs work. Therefore, I was lead to get the 2060 super. And I didn't want to use the x264 encoder because I want more performance.
Thank you. I use nvenc (new) for streamlabs obs streaming. And I use CPU for cores and threads.
Hahaha I hear ya!
Thank you. Idk even how I get that type of RGB effect like that. But it works :)
I got them from Etsy site. More specifically, seller is dreambigbyray. Got these nice custom length unsleeved cables that are perfect for the Dan case.
Which bios update you have on the motherboard?
Yes. It was easy
Not that I know of. But I do plan to add a second radiator on the bottom with 2 noctua fan intakes. Just waiting for my white 90° rotary fittings to add on my CPU block.
And yes. I just ordered a stack unit and I'm going to place that on the bottom. I have xspc tx240 slim radiator that I will use for push intake with 2 noctua fans.
And it DDC pump is quiet. at first when you start it up for leak test, you will notice it. But once you settle into coolant, all you hear are just the fans. And I actually bought their reservoir that's 180 mm . But didn't really fit inside my case. So I still have that but instead use the phanteks glacier r160 that can't be combined with the DDC pump from bykski.
And I also got it from AliExpress. I live in California so I got it quick
Yes in a way. I switched to a nouvolo steck case with stack unit. I can now use a 240mm aio over 120.
Walmart has a sale on them. And since I work for them I got a discount.
I rerouted the cables and still managed to have a cleaner look.
I think I have a faulty gpu. I am actually going to RMA ship it Sunday. I placed back the stock cooler for gpu and temps were back to 88c. So it’s probably a bad gpu.
2 fans connected to aio, 2 fans connected to sys fans and one fan connected to cpu header.
Look on eBay.
Thank you :)
Thanks. And I am using extensions. I do plan on getting custom cables in the next month when I get my taxes.
Yeah. I debated this over commando pro because of price.
1) 3 pack Corsair rgb fans usually come with lighting node pro and the rgb controller for those fans.
2) process of removing stock rgb strips from the base is difficult since it stuck there. And on top of that, Corsair strips have to stick inside the inner layer of the base for the strips to stay in place.
3) my motherboard has rgb header but I use Corsair for rgb instead
The sf600 can fit in any case as long you have the bracket. It's made for SFF cases such as dan case and louqe ghost, etc. But you can use ths psu on any case as long you have the length of the cables and the SFX to ATX bracket to mount it in the case.
And the reason it's showing that error for the AIO is because it only needs one. I use a 2nd for my gpu and it can be mounted on the rear with no problem. It sees as if you are using multiple AIO for the cpu instead of gpu.
I got mine from Amazon. These are corsair lightning node pro rgb strips.
Which part didn’t fit?
Corsair because other retailers will have them in February. I kinda wish I had the msi b450 mortar titanium white motherboard and 280x or nzxt h400 case (mAtx) white since there is not X470-I white motherboards.
It’s somewhat easy. It was my first time
Opening a gpu and replacing a cooler.
So far black ops 4 and I get high fps 1440p. Sometimes as high as 175 FPS.
Yeah at first because of cable management. But if it helps in boosting for better audio, I’m ok with it.
Amazon usually have those. I just searched for sfx to atx bracket
Yea. The older motherboard had only 1. I have nvme for bike and m.2 for storing games
I had the same concerns. But it turns out it will fit no problem.
Any 120mm aio (not nzxt).
I didn’t know it would fit but I saw another build that it does.
Much better in thermal performance than a smaller air cooler. With that gpu you have there, you have space for a 120mm aio. And, good for psu too since the fan of the psu side is facing to the aio. With that, it’s better cable management because the motherboard psu cables are on the Mobo side and gpu power cables on the other side.
No I meant a normal 120mm aio, not 92mm. You can use a compatible (Corsair recommended) 120mm aio with slim noctua fan.
With that gpu, how come you didn’t get 120mm aio for your cpu?
I thought you meant reversing the psu so cables come out towards the back from the back.
No. This is the only way the psu can be mounted. Maybe a custom 3D print can resolve that.
Not bad then. I plan on doing this if I get the zotac 1080 ti mini and amd 3700x with a different motherboard. Once that’s in next year, I plan to custom loop in the a1 :)
Hopefully a complete set doesn’t cost too much.
1: How are the temps with the 240mm rad on the bottom via passively?
2: any thermal bottlenecks to the gpu since the red directly below that is passive?
3: Fans in the base?
