    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Also most importantly that shroud looks f*cking epic. How did you match the noctua colors so well? Also how you mount the noctua fans within the shroud? Did you cut them out of their original frame? I need to know! All gpu's need noctua fans!

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Yeah this is not like a typical case where you have dedicated intake fans and dedicated exhaust fans. It doesn't work like that. However if you seal the cpu fan and seal the gpu fan shroud to the case panel they become like case fans, directly drawing in cool outside air, creating huge positive...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Wow that's hot for a 1070 in Sentry. I have had a 1080 Founders Edition and a 1080ti black edition from evga in Sentry and never hit 83. Can you provide some pictures of your fan setup? One thing that worked well for me, sealing the face of the gpu to the case side panel. Essentially going...

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    perhaps respectable is a better adjective. Nh-l9i is perfect for 65w. I use LP53 with noctua nf-a9x14 for 88W i7. Just curious if this coolermaster is any better that nh-l9i. Yeah. Just curious any time I see a new super low profile cooler. Probably about equal to the nh-l9i.

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    Anyone come across this coolermaster G200p low profile heatsink yet? This is the first I've heard of it. It's available on Amazon in the US. A bit more expensive than the venerable nh-l9i but if it's better it maybe worth it. Though it'd definitely look better with a noctua fan. Mmm that...

    Asrock b450m pro4 bios 3.60 issue

    Post time was totally normal with the 2700. So I figure it's got to be related to pcie 4.0. Or some other technology related to the new 3xxx cpu's. In my experience with Intel boards in the past if you disabled unnecessary things like com ports, disable Lan boot, or specify the pcie version it'd...

    Asrock b450m pro4 bios 3.60 issue

    I realized bios 3.60 also wasn't saving any bios settings. Nothing survived each reboot. That may have been contributing to the slow POST. Updating to 3.90 fixed the problem. POST is still a little slow, but not nearly as bad. Settings in bios seem to stick now too. Also gained new voltage and...

    Asrock b450m pro4 bios 3.60 issue

    Alright, I'll give 1.0.0.4 a try. Gotta say the first boot with 1.0.0.3abb was nerve racking, definitely thought it bricked. So upgrading again makes me nervous.

    Asrock b450m pro4 bios 3.60 issue

    Having some issues with v3.60 agesa 1.0.0.3abb Background : Just slapped a Ryzen 9 3900x in my b450m pro4to replace a 2700. Worked ok with bios 3.30 (earliest bios to support Ryzen 3xxx). But the post time was like 2 minutes. Its run a case fan (just one of them) at full speed for a full...

    Looking for black mesh/filter/fabric for case front

    For anyone interested I ended up using this particular fabric I'm sure if you took your time, you could actually make it look quite good versus my utilitarian approach. It's available in several colors too so that's cool.

    Looking for black mesh/filter/fabric for case front

    The ugly beast Almost forgot about the front i/o :D also tried to singe the corners with a lighter to melt it down a bit so it's not sticking up. it's easy to melt as its polyester. But it started melting more than I wanted so I gave up on that endeavor. Cut out enough of the front panel so...

    Looking for black mesh/filter/fabric for case front

    Well that was the best $8 I've ever spent. Cpu temps dropped 20C. Astonishing. Doesn't look like a total dumpster fire. Doesn't look uber professional either but damn it is functional. Case fans are actually quieter now too even though they're all running at the same rpm there's much less...

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Not bad. Thats a lot of hardware in a tiny package! Though I guess you can say that about almost any Sentry owner :D

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Ah good eyes, I didn't even notice but yeah the gpu looks like it sticks out beyond the side of the case by the rear i/o. I was wondering more about the thermals... iirc that's a very power hungry gpu.
