Thermal glue arrived so i replace the stock VRM heatsink with copper blocks.
Temps seems ok, i see a 5°c drop with HW Info, the psu dont suffer overheating (on winter VRM stays cool but as soon temps go higher the vrm heat go up to the PSU causing the fan ramp uo 100%)
Installed the NVME to...
Now my Slimline have two USB 3.0 front ports.
I bought a cheap Aliexpress USB 3.0 front header to replace broken USB 2 front ports
You need cut with a razor blade or a knife a plastic cover to fit the header on the shroud and add tape or glue to prevent some movement when you plug something on...
New upgrades incoming:
The VRM heatsink feels extremly hot after gaming sessions
Gonna replace the stock VRM aluminum heatsink with full copper heatsinks from Alphacool.
Just waiting a tube of thermal glue to attach it on the vrm
Second i ordered USB 3.0 front header ports to replace the...
I decided remove the metal piece of the case between pci brackets to see if that improves thermals (considering the blower style fan, this card needs have clear the exhaust grill to push hot air outside fast as posible)
The metal spacer between 1st and second pci express slot blocks...
Share the result of the cleaning and Undervolting the card (a must action to get safe temps on this case)
As arrived with stock pads and thermal paste, the card get too close to Overheat,reaching 85+°C and 90°C on GDDR6 NAND's with max fan speed
Replacing the pads with Thermalright Valor Odin...
Finally my RTX A2000 6GB Arrives.
I dont like the noise of the blower cooler
But im going to fix it as be possible adding some lubricant and replacing the pads and thermal paste
I think this GPU was used to minning.
Isnt too old to have the bearings dry, but if was used 24/7 thats possible
The Thermal pads and Thermal Paste arrived today
So i replace the stock VRM pads with Thermalright Valor Odin 15W/MK conductivity to get lower temps
And CPU Thermal Paste with Thermalright TFX 14.3W/MK
The best thermal paste i tested (in my opinion)
Feels "dense" compraed to other thermal...
I think finally gonna build my dream Slimline
I won two aunctions a couple of days ago, one for the Low Profile RTX A2000 6GB, coming in two weeks (hopefully).
And the other for a cheap Blu Ray Reader 5.25 Drive
The disc Drive fits to tight but its ok, now i have again a Drive for play...
I Undervolt the processor to the limits, the results was good.
11400F never gonna boost to the max turbo speed on ITX case like this with safe temperatures
On Stock settings gaming always reachs+ 80c with Intel Specification (65 watts and 4.2Ghz All Cores)
The system runs ok, but i...
A look to the inside
If you buy the AXP 100 look carefully the Motherboard you want to use it
In my case the Z490GTN dont allow to mount it on every position
The fix to fit the heatsink was bend the cooler to have clearance (VRM and RAM block the cooler)
Or buy a ram without heatink, its the...
I rebuild my Slimline because the motherboard and PSU died on a storm with multiple shutdowns.
This time picked a Intel CPU because Ryzen processors and Motherboards are expensive
My new specs:
Core i5 11400F with 45 watts TDP Limit (runs similar to 10400F, but 11gen has PCIE 4.0 lanes,a...
More pictures of the final modifications
Added 2 60mm Noctua PWM fans
Prevous fans started showing bad bearings noises and i replace both
Set at 1800 rpm for inaudible work
At idle the PC its silent, the GPU its the noisest part, its ok
GX 750ti now have 4+ years and the bearings start showing...
Ok i think finally found the best noise/performance/airflow setup for this case
To someone who try to reuse this little box on the future, without spending a lot of money trying to reach to the same goal:
If you find a way to mod the HP S3000 stock cooler to fit on Intel 1200/AM4 socket, with...
I installed again the AMD 92mm fan, and remove the delta fan because the PSU feels cold even with maximum energy load
All the fresh air coming from the 92mm enter by the grill of the PSU and keep the components cold.
If you are tired of the noise from the Flex ATX PSU, you can use a Noctua...
I replaced the Gammax 300 cooler, because there no clearance with the side door and that produces turbulence , increasing the real dB fan noise.
My repleacement was a Thermalright AXP 100 Full Copper with Eloop B12P 120mm fan locked @1400rpm, 17dB and 50-58°C on CPU intesive games
Hello again, i bought a new cpu cooler,
The fan started making some annoying noises and someone told me its caused by the fan, its too close to the side panel this produce turbuleces which amplifies the DBa of the fan.
So i choosed the Thermalright AXP 100 Full Cooper, its only 44mm tall (vs...
My Shuttle PC60 start failing some days ago
No matter which game i tried to play the system reboots instantly
Thankfully i kept the Shuttle PC63J , used on a older pc build
With the stock shroud the PC63J dont let me put back the motherboard, the PSU its too big and block one screw hole for the...
Look on Aliexpress , you can find cheap but decent motherboards for Xeon processors if you wanna try on the future a new build.
The VRM s on this case suffers if they arent cooled with a decent heasink, my X470NH motherboard shows 58-63°C with a copper heasink playing games
I set the cpu fan...
How much you spent at this point?
I dont undertand the insistence to upgrade a obsolete platform
With the S5000 case ,you can install easily a Micro ATX Motherboard
A cheap AM4/ Intel motherboard with a budget CPU could be a better idea
Instead wasting the money trying to make work this project...
Just leave it there, you gonna brick / fry the BIOS , on that case can only be recovered with a usb programmer and some special programs.
And that will cost you more money.
Windows version isnt the factor you cant install the updated BIOS,
If the the meta info inside the BIOS update doesnt match...
With the stock cooler
you gonna fry the CPU and VRM's if you put a 95 watts TDP procesor inside this tiny case
To keep VRM on safe temps with a 65 watts TDP processor, i spent 40 bucks on a high performance cooler,
Because with the stock Ryzen cooler, altough the CPU temps stays safe, the...
I received today thermakright TFX thermal paste
The results was insane,considering my previous TP isnt a bad one CM Master Gel Maker
(but now thinking maybe i got a dry unit of the Gel Maker, because the CPU and the cooler glued together when i reaplace the thermal paste, and the last apply was...
I added a thermalpad to the SSD NAND's and controller, and now the temps dropped 10c (before 55c- after 45c)
Plus i put 4 cooper pads to the motherboard's VRM, Biostar heatsink only covers 4 VRM , 1 of the left side and 2 of the top dont have any heatsink
With the pads now all the VRM are...
I made some changes, Noctua P12 fan start making a strange noise and got for a refund
This fan was replaced with Noiseblocker B12P Bionic Fan, set it to 1500rpm its inaudible and the performace increased (The diference between pull cold air insiode the case, the temperatures on the CPU are...
Hello again,im keep doing moddifications to my slimline
I got some extra earnings and i decided upgrade the fan (again) to a Noctua P12 PWM
Artic fan its great, but the weather feels warmer and the fan started spinning at higher rpm and the noise become noticeable, isnt disturbing at all, but i...
After 6 months i can say my Slimline its now 100% like i wanted
I removed the stock fan of the CPU heatsink (Gamemax Gama 300 if someone want to know the exact model)
Because Gamemax stock fan was noisy under load, so i take the Arctic fan i bought it before and fits perfect,
now the noise its...
Hello again,after waited 2 months i gave up with the cooler (dont use national post to import products at this moment
They lost my package,the last tracking update was on april 30 and no one knows what happended
I ordered again the cooler using DHL and finally arrived today (5 days to be...
Your build looks nice
Im happy but not satisfied because the stock amd ryzen cooler isnt enough quiet to my expectations
So i decided change the cpu cooler
Looking for a decent and not expensive cooler (top class low profile coolers are to expensive to my budget) i found this gamemax gamma 300...
Hello again, i keep modifying my slimline, trying to get best airflow
I removed stock 92mm cooler master fan of the heatsink and put a silverstone ar06 92mm low profile fan which i cannot use
because silverstone never offered a am4 mounting kit
Cooler master stock cooler now im using it to keep...
Hello again,i post new pictures, now everything its plugged correctly,card reader works as be expected.
Was worried about temps , but everything looks ok using HW Monitor
Max temps playing games was 60°C on the Ryzen 5 1600 using stock cooler, im impressed with the noise levels, isnt audible
I finally build my new slimline
Heres the Pictures
Os need to be reinstalled but thats simple,considering the time i need to expend to get a decent cable managment.
Another problem i found building this rig was the front panel doenst match the order of the motherboard
I need cut all...
I decided upgrade my slimline to the next gen games requirements
My actual rig:
i5 2400 Quad Core
16 gb ddr3 RAM
Biostar TH61 ITX
GTX 750Ti Low Profile (The 7850 low profile from afox died after 1 year of usage :( )
I cannot say anything against my actual rig, i used since 2015 and every...
I updated my rig (FX 6300 with ECS A960 MV Motherboard) cuz the new games need a lot of CPU power and my APU becomes weak
Very happy with the results
Advanced Warfare : 60-50 fps high settings,SMAA and HBAO+
Far Cry 4 : 40 fps high settings,SMAA and HBAO+
The Crew: 60-45 fps High settings ,FXAA...
the 750 LP destroys the gtx 650 and only costs 10 more bucks
i bought a accelero l2 plus to finish the overheat of my 7850 , now i share the results
Fits perfect (need to use the 43mm screwholes and match without problem :D) , if someone is planning buy this card,i recommend you 100% this cooler,im getting 61°C max playing battlefield 4 thats insane...
