I can live with the 3-5C on my CPU as it is currently running around 70C in AIDA stress. But I really don't like throttling on my GPU, I just returned a Palit 1080 Dual OC, I could not for the sake of god get this thing down in temps, even with 2xNH-F12 at the bottom and the GPU fans at near...
Need advice on new GPU... With temps and noise in mind - What is the best 1080 OpenAir GPU out there?
I have been looking at EVGA 1080 DT Gaming, and GigaByte 1080 G1 Gaming - But am unable to find someone who put one of these inside a Ncase M1.
i7 7700k @ 4500
2x 960 Evo
The lack of only only one m.2 on the Asrock is a problem as I have 2 Samsung 960 on my build.... Sooo back to the Asus Strix z270i
I was thinking, how often do I need to configure the pump anyway? Could I temporarily connect to USB from pump to a free USB2.0 on the back of the mobo, do my...
I want to run the best possible AIO CPU watercooler 240 at my new build. I was thinking of the Kraken x52 - BUT I also want to use the Asus Strix Z270i, which do not have an internal USB2.0
SO my question is, have someone found a converter from internal header USB3 to USB2?
News on the Spreadsheet
Reddit user T3mpust have done a great job updating the spreadsheet - "DOES GPU / GPU COOLER FIT", please have a look at it, and keep it up to date :)
NCASE M1 SPREADSHEET:
Question for you guys - Will it fit:
I am looking at getting this Gigabyte 1080 TI.
H=41 L=280 W=114 mm
So when reading on the specs at ncase webpage it should fit right in, is that correct?

Everything from the US is put on 25% tax when importing into the EU... (n)
So the only way to get it at the US price, is to travel there... Even If I order something from ebay.com the toll will open the package if it is from the US, and charge around 25%. So I guess that is just how it works...
Cool, thanks for the info, I will look into this P12 for case-fan. I will try running it without the air-filter though I don't believe it will make a big different, but I hope to be positively surprised. It is worth mentioning that the room temperature is around 25-28c
I got the Air cooler, because of the "noise" from the watercoolers are higher than this baby... :) Ordered a 92mm fan I will mount at the back of the case as excaust. Actualy I am pretty happy with the way it works now, last test showed rock solid performance at AIDA and Realbench, with a max of...
Just signed up to Hardforum so I could post my Ncase build, and thank all of you for this 500 pages thread with goodies :)
First build in 11 years! Still waiting for the 1080 (or the 1070?!) so for now this old 260 thing got to do the job. It is running at 4500 @ 1.265 atm, but...
What cooler did you end up buying? :) I have the exact same system on the way... But as the Noctua C14 is unavalible in Denmark, I got the Noctua D9L instead and some extra 92mm fans and some 120mm. Was thinking about placing 1 or 2 120mm slim fans on the case side.
