Re: Will SPCR ever review these SSDs anytime soon?

I am curious about the power consumption of these drives. With all the apparent problems with regards to heat/throttling, reducing power draw should be an important factor. Especially considering it will often be used in laptops. Anyway Intel is saying typical power consumption should be around 100m...

Re: New build in the Mini-ITX chassis > Ncase M1

As edh mentions you could try the accelero extreme or you could go with the twin turbo. One way to get rid of the heat is to flip the fans around so the fans of the gpu exhaust hot air under the chassis. A little unconventional, but seems to be working rather well in the ncase. For fans you could us...

Re: GTX 1060 Compilation Thread

I just installed the twin turbo III in my ncase and works perfectly. I will have to do some more testing but temps and noise is way down. It is a tight fit though and I will have find some way of connecting the usb 3.0 header again. RAM clearance could also potentially pose a problem. Oh, my bad, I...

I will post my results when I have got the cooler installed and have done some testing. Interesting idea about the mono plus. I have the ncase m1 and seeing as the case is only 140mm wide 120mm fan aftermarket vga coolers seems to be out of the question. However users at hardforum have fitted both t...

Re: GTX 1060 Compilation Thread

Well using a standard 25mm fan seems to be a bust. With an NF-A9 it was running at 83c and 1600rpm and it was actually louder than the stock fan. I think this is likely because there's only about 3mm between the bottom of the Rosewill U2 with a 25mm fan which you can see here , the shroud on the NF...

Re: Corsair SF450 spinning at idle

Thanks for the tip. Seems like a good idea placing it on the floor. But I do not really think there is room for it. I would have place it right under the fanless gpu where I have placed an intake fan.

I will see if I can get you a picture of the setup.

Thanks for the tip lodestar. I have installed the program and found it very useful. CPU temperature is not a problem. CPU is idling around 31-32 C.

Re: Corsair SF450 spinning at idle

Been a little busy lately, but I have now tested with a thermometer. The sensor has been placed at the top of the psu where the exhaust is. This is also at the very top of the case. The indoor/room temperature is at 24.7 degrees Celsius. The sensor reports max temp as 32.8 C and min temp as 28.5 C (...

Corsair SF450 spinning at idle

Hey everyone. I have just put my new build together and everything seems to be running fine. I went with the Corsair SF450 as my psu. Here are just a few words about my experience so far: I have to say I love the smaller form-factor of the sfx standard. It really frees up a lot of space in the case....

Nice! I think I will be keeping the the RAM then. However I decided to go with the i5 6600k instead of the i3! It should arrive tomorrow hopefully. Unfortunately I have yet to order the psu, as I am waiting for it to restock. No plans of overclocking though... So it looks like this: Ncase M1 i5 6600...
