Hi, it's been a while since I've written on my Ncase but want to replace a water system with air cooled.
It's got an older 5820K CPU with the funny mounting pattern.
What's a good air cooler these days??
Just pitching in... The X99-ITX can take 32GB sticks, 64GB sticks and 128GB sticks. So: 256GB max. But needs Xeon, there should be some cheaper options on eBay these days.
Also you could benefit from ECC.
Hope you find this helpful. I originally was trying to keep access to the mobo for the M.2 and cpu upgrades, but I'm unlikely to upgrade soon.
The top fan header is for the Predator, and I modded a fan extender to actually fit in the 'hidden' (under PCIe clip) third fan header.
Need to shuffle...
SFX-L PSUs tend to fit better with the fan facing into the case. I have a GPU with backplate and there is enough space. The SX700 has best compatibility due to the lower stickout of the connectors, then the SX500, and then the SX800 (or the Lian Li PE 750; same OEM) which has quite protrusive...
I think this has sort-of been discussed before but not succinctly:
As well as the left and right angled IEC connectors, would it be possible to supply a down-angled, or up-angled version?
No changes to the M1 necessary.
Haha, well it certainly seems like my build won't appeal to many either, I rather like an 'industrial aesthetic'. To be fair, my implementation is a heck of a lot neater: CNC-milled panels so that stuff lines up. I'm going for maximum radiator capacity, so it has an EK 240SE, an EK 240PE/XE (not...
Jeez, thats worrying that the Manufacturer hasn't corrected the listing, but it has only been 11days-CORRECTION: they have commented twice more in 2016 on this part incorrectly asserting that it is Registered. I've checked another Kingston listing and that spec definitely is Registered...
It looks like the Kingstons are registered (http://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/KVR21R15D4_16.pdf). The Samsung ones are LRDIMMs and use a buffer (http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/products/dram/server-dram/ddr4-load-reduced-dimm/M386A4G40DM0?ia=2504).
What have I missed? :)
If you don't want to drill and tap to a larger size, you can maybe use a threaded-insert or maybe even a thread repair set (Heli-coil). All of these require a bit of tooling (sometimes included). The simplest solution may just be to drill it out and use a nut, you could maybe glue the nut in place.
Looks like its starting to appear in the UK on Overclockers.co.uk and amazon, but price gouging is significant!
