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

    Today I tested the PCIe 4.0 compatibility with all A4-SFX generations and here are the results: Windows 10 crashed with a blue screen directly after the boot logo on the v3 and v4 risers. Only the 3M Twin Axial riser was able to handle PCIe 4.0. I made a 6 hours benchmark run through...

    ezeftw: I have the feeling you have the same problem like this guy on your board: https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/abnormal-idle-temp-i5-8400-nh-l9i-65c-avg-w-asus-z370i.7342/ For this guy the solution was to rotate the heatsink 90°. You could also try to use the boxed heatsink to...

    DAN HSLP-48: A powerful sub 50mm heatsink

    XstreamHard For the Z390-I you can remove the big I/O cover. For this mod I recommend to use the Black Ridge with Noctua A12x15 fan and VLP Ram. Than the fan will push air to the motherboard and the power regulation area so you need no heatsink on it.

    Van0: Great result. How much affect has the fan duct on the results? Did you tested pull vs push? Can you confirm that the black ridge isn't matte black painted annymore? Now it is more like black nickel plated?

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

    Maybe some of you know that the A4-SFXv4 will get a new riser cable. This riser cable is very price attractive and in the same price range of two hard risers. So I like to discuss if you are interest in using the A4 hardware layout for the C4. (GPU behind the motherboard). Compatibility...

    DAN A4-SFW: New build - help understanding temperature results

    Setup "Max Long Power Duration" in UEFI and set it to 95W then your CPU will not boost higher and the temps will be much better. But keep in mind Prime temps are not gaming temps. If you have 94°C in Prime gaming temps will be ~ 70-80°C

    Flexible PCIe risers

    They use two layers of ribbon cables (similar to old ide cables). Between the layers and around all layers the use shielding foile. For twin axial you have two single wires sourrounded be shielding + connecting shielding to ground layer. So no they do not use twin axial.

    Flexible PCIe risers

    Li Heat will work too, many cases use these cables, but the attached datasheet is so wrong. A ribbon based cable with only sandwich shielding can't be better as twin axial shielded cable. Twin Axial has no crosstalk and a grounded shield that absorbs noises. They did a wrong power calculation...

    z06blaze: Did it not work to shift the fan some mm more into the ram direction? Btw: Mount the fan in that way, that it suck air through the heatsink, this will reduce temps.

    SaperPL: Keep in mind like we have a silicon lottery it is the same for heatsinks (there is a variation for heatsinks and soldering quality). So against your L9i the BlackRidge is much better but with a perfect L9i sample the difference is 2-3°C. This is why EKL used 6 heatpipes to compensate...
