Looking forward to any build pictures from end users. As I've still to decide between cube or flat case to place beneath monitor.
Wish more manufacturers focused mid-range requirements instead of getting carried away trying to fit monster graphic card that bumps case dimensions.
Was looking at the new pictures and thought about PlayStation 2 logo that could be rotated if you changed orientation of console. Probably too labour/cost intensive compared to current logo.
As a example.
Looking at it the N could probably be aligned differently as could be mistake for a Z.
Thanks for the pictures Necere.
One work-around I thought of at the time (without considering practicality) was having the graphic card output connections facing the front of case, and using an extension similar to the principle of PSU extension used in M1. But still stuck with PCI riser...
Looking at Newegg pictures (fourth in selection) showing card back it seems the extra length includes the plastic shroud extending past circuit board. Could contact EVGA and ask for confirmation and if a revision is due.
Only recently became aware of this project, were as the M1 had more community word-of-mouth that fed back to [H]ardforum.
Going smaller is definitely appealing, as the shoebox style case versatility is wasted on me. As I personally just need mid-range graphics card support, capable/quiet CPU...
Is anyone running a MSI Geforce GTX 760 Gaming using the two Molex connections with an adaptor to 8 pin auxiliary power?
Just the use of an 8+6 pin instead of more common 6+6pin auxiliary power surprised me.
I'm passively running a i5-4570S (lower base speed but turbo boost is same as normal 4570 speeds) using an old Enzo Technology Ultra-X CPU cooler in a SG05 with the 300W semi passive PSU.
I plan to fit a Promlimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 fan underneath the heatpipe fins blowing air upwards...
To cover future upgrade has anyone tried an AMD R9 270X using the Molex to 6pin adaptor cable to connect second auxiliary power?
Going by power consumption values from TechPowerUp reviews it should be fine, as similar to a 660ti (ignoring the stress test maximum Furmark).
MSI 270X Gaming...
