    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    Been away for a while and didn't even know about the L3. I'm not in the market for another case atm, but lone, you've done a great job!!! It looks awesome!!

    Do you know if the fans have the correct connector on them? Or are they just bare wires?

    Silverstone SST-SX600-G 600w Gold SFX

    Guys, I just installed my GTX 970 (Gigabyte Gaming G1). Ambient is 74F. PSU fan now spins up under idle, even with the 120 mm fan and duct mod. So the mod really isn't worth it, unless you are running integrated graphics. I'll probably remove the duct and turn the PSU around so that it gets...

    Silverstone SST-SX600-G 600w Gold SFX

    Yes, the sound signature of the M12-2 is definitely less annoying than the chattering of the PSU fan. I can hear the M12-2, but it's just a gentle "whoosh" of air. The PSU fan, to me, was louder and had a more annoying signature. Before I did this, the chatter was definitely noticeable, to the...

    Silverstone SST-SX600-G 600w Gold SFX

    Yep. I was hoping that it would prevent it from starting even under load, but that's not the case. Maybe a more powerful fan would do the job, but I'm aiming for silence. It's nice that it doesn't start up under general tasks (web browsing etc) where the load is minimal. Because of that, I'll...

    Silverstone SST-SX600-G 600w Gold SFX

    Just wanted to provide an update to my "120mm fan blowing air into PSU" idea. I received my M1 case and have the components installed. Ambient temp is 72-73F. The PSU is pointed to the interior of the case, and I have the 120mm fan (Noiseblocker M12-2) on the opposite side. Once installed, the...

    Silverstone SST-SX600-G 600w Gold SFX

    It's now been idling for ~50 minutes. Fan is trying to start up - the blades are moving several mm. Apartment temp is 65.4F. This is with the fan at ~7V. I'm going to stress it, will report back. EDIT: Ran ITU for an hour. Ambient ~67-68F. PSU fan didn't spin up. PSU fan blades actually moved...

    Silverstone SST-SX600-G 600w Gold SFX

    I looked for that last night. I didn't notice the fan blades moving at all. I've had it on for ~30 minutes this morning, fan running at ~7V, and the fan hasn't started up yet. No strenuous tasks though, just e-mail, web surfing etc. Can't hear the same high-pitched sound though. I agree. But I...

    I think I've found an interesting solution to our fan problem, which I'm hoping someone will be able to replicate. To start with, I have an i5-4590k, oc'd to 4.5 gig, currently running integrated gfx, SX-600 PSU, 16 gb RAM, 2.5" HDD, SSD, and a couple of fans. For reference, my apartment is...

    Mine went in the Monday shipment, and has just been scanned in at the New Jersey USPS facility. I guess USPS is taking their sweet time.

    It's no problem for me atm. My build is sitting on a cardboard box on my desk, waiting for arrival of the case. It's been like that for the past couple of weeks, I'm sure a few more days won't hurt it!

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    Nope. All 970's bar the Asus and possibly MSI cards should fit in the M1. Even the MSI card might fit, but it might also contact the side panel.

    Hrm, the Guru3D review says the MSI card is only 5+1 - http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/msi-geforce-gtx-970-gaming-review,3.html :confused:

    It's 5+1. Same as the MSI card. Check out the review at Guru3D.

    Which 970 Are You Buying?

    I would get the MSI card, but I think it's too wide for my case (nCase M1). Thinking I'll remove the fans from the heatsink of the Gigabyte card and put 2 120mm fans on the case floor, blowing directly onto the heatsink of the card.

    I'll be going for the Gigabyte G1 Gaming 970.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Necere, considering we're talking about this card, and given that it appears to take up two slots, what's the distance from the inside bottom of the case to the top of the card? I'm wondering if the fans could be removed and replaced with 2 x 120mm fans on the case floor, plus shrouds if necessary.

    Did you remove the removable section from the backplate of the 980's? That supposedly helps with cooling when cards are sandwiched next to each other in SLi.

    GTX 970/980 specs @ Techpowerup, plus 3dmark gpu-score leaks... Neo: "Woah."

    Knew I'd read it somewhere!! Thanks Brent!! So compared to the currently available 970's, the 980 has a better blower cooler and better power delivery system. Now the question is, is that difference worth $220???
