    Lian Li all brushed aluminum cases

    For those sad over the loss of aluminum cases and CaseLabs (as am I)... I'm about to start a new build with a Sliber Cerberus: https://www.sliger.com/products/cases/cerberus/ They are mostly aluminum and made in the USA. Yes, about 3x the price, but not much different than CaseLabs used to be.

    FS SEA: CaseLabs Merlin SM8, Corsair Dominator 32GB DDR4, MSI B350 Tomahawk, lots of EK parts

    Ha - if only it didn't take up a massive amount of space, I'd probably be willing to put it in the garage. I get that they're practically collector's items now. But I'm fine with parting with it - there's plenty of well-thought-out cases on the market these days. And at least one still made in...

    FS SEA: CaseLabs Merlin SM8, Corsair Dominator 32GB DDR4, MSI B350 Tomahawk, lots of EK parts

    Bumping as I've removed the items that have sold. CaseLabs case still available.

    FS SEA: CaseLabs Merlin SM8, Corsair Dominator 32GB DDR4, MSI B350 Tomahawk, lots of EK parts

    Thanks tango. I did notice they don't seem to have a website anymore, but spare parts can still be had on Amazon I believe. It's a shame.

    FS SEA: CaseLabs Merlin SM8, Corsair Dominator 32GB DDR4, MSI B350 Tomahawk, lots of EK parts

    cdoublejj, it's 22.44″H x 11.18″W x 22.38″D without the casters, so that probably bumps it up another 2 inches or so. It's a big boy! I believe all the WC parts are aluminum where they interface with water, but I could be wrong. I haven't experienced any galvanic corrosion issues with the build.

    FS SEA: CaseLabs Merlin SM8, Corsair Dominator 32GB DDR4, MSI B350 Tomahawk, lots of EK parts

    EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM pump/reservoir combo unit ($125 shipped CONUS) Worked flawlessly in my custom loop for about two years. Includes the original box, install instructions, and assembly tools. Also includes radiator mount (EK-UNI Pump Bracket), if you want to attach this to a standard...

    GTX1080 with Accelero Xtreme III and case fans - fan curve issues

    SOLVED: My 1-to-3 fan splitter only includes RPM on one output, and it was the one I wasn't using.

    GTX1080 with Accelero Xtreme III and case fans - fan curve issues

    Here's my main Afterburner screen. I've enabled the custom fan curve but it appears no matter what I do it shows "27%" as the fan speed value.

    GTX1080 with Accelero Xtreme III and case fans - fan curve issues

    Downsizing from a full-size ATX tower to a mITX Ncase M1 and trying to reuse as many of my components as possible. Also removing my custom water loop and going back to air - with a Noctua U9S CPU cooler and, since I didn't have an original fan shroud for my GTX 1080, an Arctic Accelero Xtreme...

    Raspberry Pi4 as HTPC?

    I have a full blown WIndows HTPC that really only gets used to watch streaming video through a web browser. Not YouTube, as the YouTube app built into modern TVs or my Fire Stick 4K is just a way better TV experience. Given that I only use my HTPC for that very limited function, I was wondering...

    Building a revenue generating workshop heater?

    That's what I was thinking... Basically the farm would be in a closed-off carport in the shop, separated by an insulated wall. When it's cold in the shop I can turn on the ducting to blow in some of the warm air from the farm. In the summer, I can close that duct or redirect it to the outside...

    Building a revenue generating workshop heater?

    I'm new to mining like all the other vermin that have been coming out of the woodwork lately, but after seeing how my year-old video card is now selling for three times its old price, I figured maybe there's some opportunity here. I've started to mine on my rendering desktop while not in use...

    Watercooled Ryzen in NCASE M1?

    With access to a 3D printer and the ability to custom model brackets, any possible way to get that EKWB EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM pump/reservoir combo stuffed in there, while still retaining the side-mounted radiator? Alternatively, could I just use the D5 pump and purchase the FrozenQ...

    Watercooled Ryzen in NCASE M1?

    I was hoping it would look OK but in that picture, from that perspective, it really does look like hell. Do you have any zoomed-out pictures there? With the baby-blue configuration pictured, where is this pump located? I'm liking more and more the idea of mounting the 240 radiator on the...
