    DAN HSLP-48: A powerful sub 50mm heatsink

    So basically for a significant portion of the top selling RAM on the market, this heatsink is likely going to pose an issue, even with a 92mm fan. Bummer:(

    DAN HSLP-48: A powerful sub 50mm heatsink

    Is normal DDR including standard heatsink? Most RAM these days seems to have pretty significant height increases due to ornate heatsink? Would something like Hyper X Fury RAM fit under this heatsink?

    DAN HSLP-48: A powerful sub 50mm heatsink

    So that would be a 120x15mm fan? So VLP RAM with a 120mm fan and then 33.75mm RAM with a 92mm fan?

    DAN HSLP-48: A powerful sub 50mm heatsink

    I'm having a hard time determining what the max height is for RAM with this heatsink. Dondan, would you be so kind as to please specify in the OP what the Max compatible RAM height is with a 92mm/100mm fan as well as a 120mm fan?

    Gauging interest in a new DC-DC board solution

    Hey Guys, I'm currently trying to see if there is interest in a DC-DC board I have been planning out with the good people over at HDPlex. As a fan of small form factor I am really tired of the 24 pin cable and so I set out to design a board that eliminated the need for all that bulk while...

    VR Backpacks Outdated Soon?

    So as headsets move from 1080p to 4k and eventually 8k, wireless will continue to be a viable option? Just thinking about getting a backpack rig or making my own DIY, but don't want to spend the time or the money if it's just going going to be wasted on new tech.

    VR Backpacks Outdated Soon?

    Hey Guys, I was just wondering what the enthusiasts here think about whether VR/AR backpacks or wearable PCs have much of a future with the Vive and Rift both having wireless solutions on the horizon. It seems to me that as the resolution of headsets goes up, which it inevitably will, wireless...

    Will a 5775C fit a Intel 5x5 board? or: Anyone wish STX took off?

    I am presently working on having a custom DC to DC board made that will make these sorts of builds possible. It will have a 4 pin pass through connector as well as an 8 pin PCIe connector to power a GPU of choice. Total power drawn by the system will need to stay under 300W. The pass through...

    Gigabyte BRIX Gaming UHD (2016)

    Perfect example of a manufacturer taking the cheap way out. 6700T would have been my choice.

    Gigabyte BRIX Gaming UHD (2016)

    Shame they opted to launch this with the GTX 950 which is an end of life GPU. The 1050ti is right around the corner, runs on the same 75W TDP and sits about midway between a 960 and 970.

    Gaming SFF machine from NUC?

    Here you can see a build log by Aibophobia where he uses the new AsRock Mini-STX motherboard to do exactly what you're talking about STX160.0 - The most powerful ATX unit, in the world! The only issue you'll run into with most NuC/STX sized boards is that they while you are correct that they...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    For all the people moaning about the price, Dondan sold 1700 cases without issue in 30 days and after Linus builds in it and posts the video on LTT, there will easily be the demand for ten times what's already sold. Why should the case be cheaper other than the fact that you lot are too poor to...

    ITX Polaris & Pascal cards

    Pretty sure the 1060 PCB is exactly the same layout as the 670 and 970 which means the Arctic Accelero coolers should work just fine with it. I know the Accelero Twin Turbo III has a 21cm heatsink

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Hey Dondan, This might be deliberate, but I was charged 22 euro for shipping on one case, but when I upgraded my pledge to two cases, the shipping price went down to ten euro total for both units. I have a feeling this wasn't on purpose.

    Skull Canyon NUC (2016) w/ M.2 eGPU

    If you have any way to test thermal throttling that'd be really cool. I know I've already read that this happens which gets me to thinking about doing something like this will Skull Canyon: Laine's Luna From Newegg reviews: Cons: -Under heavy CPU load the temperature increases very quickly to...

    HDPlex PCIe Riser Cable

    Just wanted to make people aware that HDPlex has released a new PCIe 3.0 16x riser card and the thing is beautiful. Unlike most of the other products on the market (I have a Li-Heat as well as a number of standard issue cables), this thing is massively pliable and much lighter than anything else...

    Mini-STX: A new form factor

    Seeing as it is an AsRock board and there will be two M.2 slots, hopefully at least one of them will be Ultra M.2 (4x PCI 3.0). If that is the case, just use one of these bad boys: http://www.bplus.com.tw/ExtenderBoard/P4SM2.html It's already been done here (PCIe 2.0 x4 in this example)...

    Why not both? The DUAL current steam machine.

    Kinda getting away from the direction this thread is going in, but in my mind this is a perfect way to "modularize" the Flex ATX power supplies (specifically the 500W FSP) without resleeving, cutting cables or voiding warranties. Anyone this this will/won't work?

    Any pico-itx boards with PCIE 4x or 8x?

    You can get an adapter from BPlus that allows you to convert the M.2 slot on an Intel NuC board to a x4 PCIe slot. I don't know if this would meet your needs, but worth looking into. There was a buildlog on here a couple months ago that outlined how this worked.

    i5 NUC and GTX980

    Don't believe that NuC has the requisite M.2 slot.

    i5 NUC and GTX980

    AsRock's new Skylake NuC specs are out and it looks like a PCI 3.0 U.2 slot will be available on it (x4). Bodes well for future iterations of this build.

    i5 NUC and GTX980

    Have you thought about powering the NuC via the Auxillary power connector under the 2260 to 2280 part of the M.2 card? Wondering if you could get that running from another splice.

    i5 NUC and GTX980

    Doesn't do M.2 and ExpressCard and mPCIe are both limited to 1x PCIe 2.0 lane which doesn't give very satisfactory performance. Add to that a bulky and inflexible cable and a bulky and large base and it's a pretty crappy option for a small form factor PC.

    i5 NUC and GTX980

    Don't know if anyone here considers themselves knowledgeable enough to figure out a power solution to get something like this running, but if anyone does I could really use some help.

    i5 NUC and GTX980

    In Intel's tech sheet it states "Using PCIe x4 M.2 SSD maximum bandwidth is approximately 1600 MB/s". PCIe 3.0 can transfer about 985 MB/s per lane which means at 2x it would be about 2000 MB/s. Considering that it would take 4x 2.0 lanes to transfer this amount of data, it would seem to me that...

    Using M.2 PCI-E lanes from NUC to communicate with external GPU

    Can do this build under 2L with a 970 whereas the smallest reasonably available ITX build will be Dondan's A4 which is over twice the volume. If I can solve the problem of getting power to the PCI slot to power a short or low profile 750ti, then the volume would likely shrink to well under 1.5L...

    Using M.2 PCI-E lanes from NUC to communicate with external GPU

    I already have the both the B and M key M.2 adapters from BPlus, an M.2 extender board a Galax GTX 970 OC Short Form (193mm), HDPlex 250 and all the other bells and whistles to do this build. I will be getting the new i7 NuC when it ships on May 10th and am in the process of having the case...

    Project H20-Micro a Watercooled 3 Liter system with GTX970

    Out of curiosity, was there any decrement in performance due to the x4 slot vs. a x16? If you don't know, any chance of testing it on a motherboard with a x16 slot?

    How many ppl are interested in these power supplies

    Not really sure what the power supply you're talking about looks like. Perhaps you linked the wrong photos? Does it accept 2 AC bricks or something
