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

    I Have a V5 case and due to circumstances outside my control have to replace the motherboard with something more modern. I would therefore like to get the new front plate which is currently out of stock on the Ncase site. Are there other sources for this part?

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

    Fun fact - the Airflow from the card now impacts my M2 SSD which means it flies way over its limits and causes the system overheat. I have an M2 slot on the back of the motherboard which I can use instead but that was an unexpected development and direct result of the airflow from these beastly...

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

    In terms of the fan spec I’m quite confused about what is needed. There’s lots of options. I assume 4 pin & 12v for the Motherboard connector and variable control I think but I suspect I don’t want ultra low noise as much as efficiency. So assume a 92x25 (not 14) for the back and an A or S...

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

    Hi rfarmer thank you! I recall you were helpful ‘back in the day’ when I put the original setup together. I’m not looking to do anything whizzy, just want to be able to put the side on the case and not have it turn into a storage heater. I used to run (and still occasionally use) a...

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

    Quick question in respect of the RTX cards which have pass-through cooling. How does the sandwich format affect expulsion of hot air through the back of the card and out into the world? Won’t it just heat up the separator and radiate the heat back at the card? More of a general sandwich-design...

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

    Hi all I have a V5 Ncase and just added a 3080 FE model to replace a deshrouded 1080Ti. Fits nicely but the way it directs air through the back end of the card means it’s not working well with the current cooling solution. It probably doesn’t help that my cabling is an unholy mess. so...

    Audeze Mobius Gaming Headset Review @ [H]

    It looks like the user KaiSc is clearly backing you up in your view of the mic which is positive but sad that Audezee have misrepresented the discussion you had. Very poor form. https://www.head-fi.org/threads/audeze-mobius-review-impressions.887808/page-132#post-14564603

    Audeze Mobius Gaming Headset Review @ [H]

    It would be interesting to bash together a specification for an 'ideal' headset and see what you end up with. The problem is that people want different things, or are being told they want different things by the marketing, so there can be no one-size-fits-all solution.

    Audeze Mobius Gaming Headset Review @ [H]

    "...We were truly expecting a wireless USB solution when we purchased these. We feel that we were mislead with the marketing on the wireless feature...." Yes, me too. In fact so were a lot of others - we were talking about this in the wireless headset thread, after all. In terms of head...

    I use the over ear momentum's and they're amazing. Proper solid bass and great isolation. Can't speak for the on-ear versions but my experience bodes well.

    Best Wireless Headset for Gaming?

    So a week in and I'm really enjoying the Pro Wireless. It's hooked up to my PC by USB and Xbox by Optical, and my phone by Bluetooth. It really can do everything. The comfort is way better than my old corsairs and are a whole lot better at isolation too - once the headphones are on, no sound...

    Looking for on the ear headphones

    Firstly, I hope that your skin cancer is properly sorted by the operation and you get to use your new headphones for many years to come. I have been using a pair of Bose travel headphones with my Xbox for a little while (now replaced by some Steelseries over ear ones which I can use on the...

    DAN C4-SFX: The smallest water cooling case in the world

    Definitely provide an option for 2x120mm. There are so many hybrid GPU's out there with a 120mm that it would cut off all of those potential users. Flexibility with the number and range of AIO's is key for this to work, IMO. I have no preference over the front ports because I tend not to have...

    Although I'm interested in seeing the Hardforum take on matters some of the reviews I have seen make me think that these are not going to be the cans for me. Comments around the quality of the headband, the rubberised coating, and difficulty connecting to consoles etc mean that I think I'm...

    How to transmit PC audio over wifi to speaker?

    It is. Plug one component directly into your router or a wired network point and it creates it's own network which is more reliable than having all of them using just your home wifi. Like most people I just use them to access Spotify or similar music services but actually it's quite useful to...

    How to transmit PC audio over wifi to speaker?

    I agree, but if you already have some components which you're using for wireless streaming (which most people will do) it may not be immediately obvious that they can also be utilised in these circumstances,

    How to transmit PC audio over wifi to speaker?

    You can also use Sonos. Some of the products have a line-in which you can share with any set of speakers you like in the rest of the system. Slightly pricey but the audio quality is pretty damn good.

    RVZ03 Cooling Advice

    I like the FTZ01 because of the material - it's why I went with the Ncase eventually. Can't confirm the clearance I'm afraid but it wasn't much - you can see on one of the images I was able to fit the rubber foot between the GPU and fans to hold the former steady. The foot will be smaller than...

    RVZ03 Cooling Advice

    The RVZ03 I think has the same internal clearance as the ML07 which I used for my last build (still have this). I managed to get a Coolermaster Seidon 120M in there. Took a bit of effort and you really need to get your cabling right, but it successfully cooled the i7-4790 for three years - and...

    Best Wireless Headset for Gaming?

    Can you not just plug in a cord for a couple of game-hours like I do with my XBox controller? I wonder what the substantive difference is between my Sennheisers which will go 22 hrs against one of the main headset brands which seem to do half that at best?

    Best Wireless Headset for Gaming?

    Me too, but I'm at a crossroads. If I shell out for the Steelseries Arctis 7 I'll wish I had gone for the Wireless Pro. But if I go for that and for £50 more could have had something truly amazing but for the want of some patience then I'd kick myself.

    Best Wireless Headset for Gaming?

    That's a £295 headphone in the UK and not wireless, but can see the keener US pricing (and they're good looking headphones too) so certainly take your point when comparing US prices. I was previously looking at the OPPO PM-2 though I note they're no longer making products so perhaps a lucky...

    Hi all, I currently have a Corsair Vengeance 1500 headset. It's 7.1 surround with sort of felt earcup and leatherette headband. The felt picks up dust and the headband gets uncomfortable but otherwise it's not a bad headset. However the cord is driving me nuts now and I want to go wireless...
