    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    I had 1080Ti n Sentry and it was fine. Then had 2070S. Just got RTX3070 FE and it same as 1080Ti and 2070S. I guess having crippled cooling with one fan not going to do anything wouldn't be good.

    How far do you guys it from the CX48? I sit 80cm away from my 40"monitor. WOuld sit the same when get CX48, but I'm thinking if I should maybe get CX55 (£200 cheaper)...

    PQ is most imporant for me, yes:) I never had TN panels, horrible stuff. Right now I have Philips 40" monitor which is VA and now I want to get best visual experience you can get for PC gaming.

    Thanks for confirming. I'm planning to use RTX 3070 - well, once I'll be able to buy one;) So it sounds like it is really the best PC monitor money can get right now?

    Hi guys, I'm planning to buy CX48 for my PC to be main monitor. I've read dozens of pages here and would like to ask for a short summary:) So I understand that there is some issue with setting it up to 4K VRR 120MHz and nvidia cards? LG said they will fix it with new firmware, is that right?

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    I wonder if RTX 3080 FE would work fine in Sentry? One fan would be blocked... I'm trying to catch 3070 FE for my Sentry, but was wondering if 2-slot 3080 would be OK, that 300W is a bit too much for Sentry.

    I think I'm ok with the result. Noise wise, it is very similar to what I had in ITX case, so its fine. It will always be a bit louder as I almost literally have GPU outside:)

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    OK, so i got my v1.1 Just built it, i5 7500 stock + Noctua NH-L9i, RTX 2070 Super FE. So far idle/web browsing shows CPU 40C, GPU 26C. Gaming, Witcher 3 for 1 hour: CPU 64C, GPU 83C. I think this is ok for this kind of case.

    [SFFTEC] Z-CASE P50: Innovative console-style SFF PC case

    This is really cool case. But you know what I would do? That front hole - I would make it full covered, but with mesh/holes like on top. Second thing - I would add SFX PSU option - I'm sure this could be fit in instead of Flex version. I would love to get one and mod it, I have some cool ideas...

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    Hi guys. I just bought v1.1, gonna use i5 7500 with Noctua NH-l9i and RTX 2070 Super Founders edition. What are your temps while gaming? I'm curious to see what temps you get using similar components. Gaming, not stress tests.

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    Sounds good, thanks. There is one for sale, 1.1 black, I thought I could get it, but ideally I would prefer beige/grey 2.0... I guess I need to keep any eye on MM and see if someone will sell one... Zaber wrote they don't have any and won't for now...:( Why Nocuta cooler is venerable? Is it...

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    What is the main difference between those two? I'm not planning to watercool it, just use 2080 card and Noctua low profile cooler.

    SENTRY: Console-sized gaming PC case project

    Is it still worth getting version 1.1? Or is 2.0 way better and no point buying 1.1?

    SENTRY 2.0: Evolution of console-sized gaming PC case

    Were can I buy Sentry 2.0? Is there a point getting version 1.1? I may grab 1.1, but don't know if differences made in 2.0 are worth more and 1.1 isn't way to go?

    Slim ITX case options

    If you like shoe box shaped cases, Sugo series is perfect for this. If you prefer something more towery-like, I like all those small Lian-Li or Colltek/Jonsbo cases. Look at Cooltek U series, they are nice.

    Slim ITX case options

    I decided to go with Jonsbo UMX1 Plus. I found one very cheap on ebay - in e-shops new one costs around £140. I found a new one for £75 on ebay. Now, after watching many reviews of dsifferent air coolers, I also decided to replace AIO cooler with Noctua NH-U9S. Looks like this is pretty much...

    Slim ITX case options

    See, I've been looking for a slim ITX and don't understand that none of those available cases have possibility to stay thin, but accept full length GPUs and AIO coolers. Well, there are few, which I'm considering, but those are so expensive. These are some of those I've looked at: Metallic...

    Slim ITX case options

    I'm looking for a slim ITX case, that would let me install full length GPU (like 1080Ti), sff PSU and AIO 120mm cooler. Ideally, slim vertical case. What are my options?

    i5 7500 vs 7600K in games

    I'm at the point where need to upgrade my system. I was wondering, what is the point of getting i5 7600K and OC, if 7500 could have similar fps in games? I will be gaming at 4K, but cannot find any gaming benchmarks on these two compared. I found some tests of 7600K stock vs OCed at 1080p. If...

    Now, moment to mount all the hardware. This huge graphics card will get it, it was a big moment, never tried it before the final build, so this was a moment of truth - did I measured all good?:) Of course I tried it once before without panels etc, knew that it will fit in, but look at it... thi...

    Next was to use those mounting brackets for AIO radiator fan I made before. Added rubber gromets... ..and that was it! Basically finished most of the hard work. It was time to put all things together... ..including feet! At the end I decided to go with powder coating. I...

    UPDATE TIME! I had my birthday this weekend and spent some "myself-time" working in my shed:) After I got those rods threaded, I put it all together and installed panels on the frame. To mount AIO cooler radiator with fan, I made those L shape mount frames for it. Cut them out...

    Another update. There was a really nice weather today, so went out and did some work on Chimera. I bought some 2mm clear plexi for front hole. I trimmed it to fit in the front hole, it will be a background for front panel design. Here's behind a front panel. I think I will use double sided...
