    New Silverstone FT02

    Does it provide enough push? did you have to seal the area around it since there should be other space left around it? That's funny, I was almost tempted to get the fractal design fan, my friend found it, it should be able to fit under the video card, the only thing that blows is that they...

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    ya'll sure that computer doesen't belong to the guy from low cost cosplay? j/k https://twistedsifter.com/2020/12/lonelyman-low-cost-cosplay-2020-gallery/ Sorry if I haven't been too active, the 180x180x2mm fans are not common, not too much competition, it's a combination of pay a lot and get...

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    yeah, I don't remember if the replacement I put in were the revised version, don't remember if they have the same code. Originals are supposed to be FT181, but I remember at some point they were revised, don't remember if they kept the same code name. Revised might be AP181.

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    I'll check on it later on. Started looking for at least a OEM replacement, man there aren't as plentiful, and they cost more, but they were never cheap to begin with. Is there anything else that really outperform these fans when it comes to noise and air delivery?

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    Technically not, there's an actual bracket and indentation for the fan, so doing that would force the fan to overlap with the rail that it lines up, also half the fan covers the video card so youd have to offset to only use less than 25% of it. Hope this visual helps. So the fan has a...

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    Here's what the rig looks like. The last image shows the fan clearance at the back, and that's without the rail adaptors that has to be attached to the fan so that it lines up. Once in IMGUR you can click to go to site, right click on image and open if you wanna see it bigger.

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    I think that 3rd fan is not as useful since its all the way front where the optical media, single mechanical HD is, and a hidden sata ssd is hidden. I don't think that area of the case "gets anywhere near hot" Man if the fan was just a bit thinner, I messed rubbing the broken one in the space...

    New Silverstone FT02

    Anyone find a slimmer fan that they mounted in the middle? Just rebuilt, after trouble shooting some issues finally noticed bottom fans were dead. I had a spare one and put it in the furthest back spot. Need to replace top fan too, do you all recommend stock, or something else?

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    Ok made some progress today. While messing around I was so fixated on the big image that I missed some of the little things. I messed up. The bottom fans were all dead. The case fans from the FT02 are so quiet I had not noticed that they had given up the will to keep going. I had a spare one...

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    I inspected the wings when I put it together, it looked fine. The cores all have the same temp. I'll look at the tightness tomorrow again and the wing bolts, is it possible to over-tighten the 2 main bolts with the spring on them? What makes it a little harder to rationalize the numbers is my...

    New 5800x with NH-U12P SE1366 R possibly heat issues?

    New build. Processor was idling high 74-76C. I reapplied paste (Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut), and did a better job at tucking some of the modular cables, now I'm idling 55-58C. I decided to do some testing on Prime 95 8 core torture, blend. It keeps a good constant 76C or so, and once the test...

    Which of these x570 and b450-550 do you guys recommend?

    well here's what I ended up happening. Initial intention was the cheap mobo and the 2700x. Slept and woke up maybe the 5600x with the discount ($140) is cheap enough to make it worth my while. Went to MC and opted for the 5800x (250$ after discount), and Asus TUF gaming x570 plus wifi extra ($20...

    Which of these x570 and b450-550 do you guys recommend?

    Long story short my x370 and 1700 died, I trouble shoot all the parts. I was going to wait for AM5, but this created an urgency to buy time. All options would end up driving far to micro center instead of waiting days for parts. Option 1. My friend let me borrow his 2700x, buy a cheap...

    Thanks for the reply. Man it was wild when all the calibrators were parading it around on streams, and out of nowhere Vince came along and was like there's something off the peak brightness. The latest video caused some ripples in the AVS forums. here is where he shows the layout difference...

    Sony GDM-FW900 CRT Monitor Brand NEW in BOX

    Y'all are brave people cause that thing was heavy. I even be attached a note to the bottom of the base congratulating anyone who had the fortitude to steal it. Won't touch the tempered glass stuff. Fear it's one wrong vibrating frequency away from shattering.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    I think Vince main problem with the s95b is that movie mode was supposed to be as close as possible to the intention of media creators and instead Samsung added their own spice. Since it has more limited settings it might be impossible to dial it in 100% in that mode. Who knows maybe if people...

    Sony GDM-FW900 CRT Monitor Brand NEW in BOX

    Yep. One thing that is good and bad was that, yes it will run and make lower quality content look good and was less discriminate about the resolution dialed in. Funny thing is I was messing around dark souls 3 the other day, changed resolution to either 800 or 600 and in my ips it turned into a...

    Best buy failed me, they did not have the S95B on display, even thou the website said there would be a display. Guys there said they haven't set up the new displays, and that it might be a few days before its done. He was talking about next month.

    Sony GDM-FW900 CRT Monitor Brand NEW in BOX

    No. This monitor has a 16:10 aspect ratio. I heard of people being able to push a little above 2304x1440, but at the expense of refresh rate due to the RAMDAC limitations. I'd hit up the FW900 thread on the monitor thread. You give up an insignificant amount of width to get a tiny bit of height...

    This puppy does 2304x1440 @ somewhere between 80-85 at that resolution. You can get crazy refresh by lowering resolution.

    Sony GDM-FW900 CRT Monitor Brand NEW in BOX

    That's a rough one. I had one, I loved it, things get old and eventually succumb to time. I would say currently it's advantage is still motion. Modern monitors made improvements in size, resolution, geometry. There's still something special about the FW900, I don't even know if this brand...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Before it came out I remember the Samsung website or bestbuy somewhere listed the nits. There was a 500 nits peak difference between the 55" and the 65". I am searching the web and I can't find it anymore after launch as if that spec was scrubbed out.

    I already have a TV, I squeezed in the biggest that I could at the time that was within my means. I want to use it as a computer screen and space becomes a factor because it adds more complexity to viewing distance. For the computer I have a finite space, I was looking at the alienware, the c2...

    I messed that up, sorry about that. I confused the A90K (XR-42A90K) with the A95k. If that's the case hopefully Samsung wont mess up and offer an interesting alternative.

    You got lucky. I liked the clarity of the monitor, but I hated the tearing. My display before that was a fw900, I never saw or noticed tearing until I moved to LCD. I'm split between upgrading my screen, or keeping it until It doesn't do it's job anymore. I'm waiting to see what that 43' sony...

    As long as it doesn't kill these panels prematurely. I had a Korean overclock monitor, I didn't win the lottery with the one that I got, got to like 85-90 or so, but didn't hit the magic 100+. That thing did not live past the 2nd year mark, maybe I got unlucky. I wouldn't be surprised that...

    Oh the Fw900 is way gone. Nothing lasts forever, there's other guys that are more resourceful than me keeping theirs going. One of the issues for me was that at some point they stop having ramdac on some of the video cards, so there was no analog signal to use on crt anymore. After the FW900...

    I was talking about comparing it to LCD and I used the word Was hard to beat. The FW900 was a beast of a monitor, one could almost say its the Ferrari of CRT without stepping into Bugatti territory (Reference CRT monitors) and that metaphor is a bit funny because now we have civics that make...
