May I suggest some zip ties on that cabling? It would be nicer! :wink:

Thanks for sharing, anyway! :mrgreen:

@CA_Steve It depends on the game, Overwatch which is probably one of the more taxing GPU-vise brings it to 60C pretty quickly with the fan in completely silent mode. I have a fanmate 2 on the fan now and will make it spin faster when I play taxing games like VR stuff. I would like the fan header from the MSI 1050 Ti to feed the Nuctua fan but I can't figure out the polarity of the JST Molex, the old fans had a black and a dark blue?! cable... :/

Oh, and that's without the lid... I like convection too much to put a lid on anything.

Edit: solved the polarity, MSI says blue = positive, and you can see that cable is red if you google the card, but my molex JST came with the polarity inverted, feels weird is there no molex standard for how a plug should be polarised?!?!? What is happening to the world!? ;)
