The only drawback is that you'll need some 12V voltage source so no powering the monitor from USB only (unless you do step-up voltage conversion which would likely exceed the USB specified maximum amperage).
I don`t understand.. thermalright axp 100 RH 65mm tall.. with fan;;
Hi dondan,The new thermalright axp 100rh is 1mm too high. The ultra maximum is 50mm. But the thermalright fan is 14mm high if you use a scythe 12mm fan it will fit. I will test it.
Maybe you can power them from the PSU with molex to DC barrel adapters like https://www.amazon.com/4-Pin-Molex-Connector-5-5mm-2-1mm/dp/B0121QHR2E.
Another one I found:This is a great idea, do anyone knows if you could fit the cable through the hole in the back of dan case, above the GPU slot? i was watching Linus video since i have an EVGA FTW 1070 and it seems that the video card occupies that space, but it could be possible be routed between the gap of the pcb with the cooler itself, it will be just cool to plug the monitor directly to the case.

Soon the web will be flooded with near identical A4 builds.
More exotic differences:
- Silver vs. black case
- Corsair vs. Silverstone vs. other brand PSU:s
- Custom sleeved cables vs. stock cables
- L9i vs. C7 CPU cooler
- Different GPU:s (doh)
- Different motherboards (doh)
Can anyone else think of anything else?
- Sleeved PCI riser cable (reward for figuring out how to do this properly)
- Vandal switch
- Water cooling, likely external radiator, custom pidestal or similar
- Side panel window
- Drilling mod to mount more fans somewhere
- Repainted case
- 2 slim 92mm fans wrapped in modders mesh, put on top panel to help suck air out
- Custom feet
have you guys considered this cooler from ID-cooling? according to their site it has a tdp of 130watts but its a bit expensive though
first of all thank you very much for your great work, I am really looking forward to get my A4.
Regarding the AXP 100RH, the homepage says the fan is 15mm, so maybe also a 13mm fan would fit? Could you please check as well? There are some nice 140 fans available with 13mm thickness like the Thermalright 14013R. If the performance is similar to the APX 100H Muscle, this might be be best option for a CPU cooler in the A4.

Delidding improves the thermal flow from the CPU to the heatsink, nothing else. It only conveys significant temperature improvements if the cooler can handle the heat. Likely the C7 or L9i capabilities will be the bottleneck here. That said, temperature will drop by a few degrees anyways because the cooler can diffuse the heat more effectively if its temperature (difference to ambient) is higher.
