is dondan still working on a less ugly pcie extender?
No because i need to order 10.000 units from 3M for a custom one.
I think owners of this case feel proud to have the world's best PCI-E cable. You can hide it if you want, but the fact is: it's the best.
I switched mine out for a LiHeat riser (300mm D.type).
3M on the left, LiHeat on the right:
Same mounting dimensions:
Fits fine and doesn't show through top of case:
Is the quality as good as the 3M? Probably not. But it works for me.
You can of course just paint it...........
Or use gaffers tape, but I'm lazy.
that's looks so better! specially on top of the case where the other one blocks soo much air flow. great mod!
What's wrong with the Gaming X card? Is it too tall, or too wide? (searched the thread, but didn't see any specific call-outs on compatibility)
It's 2.5 slots, so too thick to fit in the Dan A4 without hitting the side panel.
Only a few aftermarket cards fit. The top-top end are all 2.5 or 3 slots.
I got the Gigabyte Gaming OC 1080 Ti but it has really bad coil whine. Paired with a 7700K and SF600 if anyone was looking at the same sorta power usage that might produce the same whine.
Sorry to hear about your GPU coil whine issues. Gigabyte from what I have read and experienced myself, has a pretty bad record when it comes to coil whine compared to the other aftermarket GPU manufacturers.
I think the best GTX 1080 ti that might fit is the EVGA FTW3. I say might as it may be too long but won't know until it is released around mid may
I want to swap out the founders edition for the FTW3 if it fits. Per EVGA, some have already shipped
Hello everyone! I've put a few pictures in the build thread https://hardforum.com/threads/dan-a4-sfx-post-your-build-here-thread.1924512/
About the wobbling power button. I think I have found a way to fix it. I've noticed that the switch itself is not that wobbly. The bare power switch actually gives you a really good confident pushing clicking sensation. Just like any other PC case in the world. But you loose this sensation with the front cover on. Its getting all wobbly. Why? Some thing must blocking it. What's that? And I guess I've found the answer. It's the spring. Yes. You have to get rid of the spring in order to get that confident pushing clicking sensation back. Screw out the power button (the outer button, not the inner switch!). Toss out the spring. Screw in the power button back. Check if the button tends to fall out without a spring. If so, just a little bit bend that little thingie that holds the button in place. Put your whole cover back on the case. Enjoy your power button giving you that really confident pushing clicking sensation.
What is THE CPU cooler to get at the moment? Won't be getting my case till whenever the second batch comes in (is the July 1 date on overclockers.uk placeholder or is that the earliest they'll be back?). Any cheap cases/setups people recommend that I can use temporarily until the Dan case shows up (hope to fit a 1080ti FTW3 if it fits at all)?
Lol a "few". More like a ton over three seperate posts hehe. Looking good!
Rappy: LP53 with NF-A9x14
Thermolab, correct? Anything specific I should know about mounting/etc.?
Check out the review thread on that cooler in the cooling Sub forum. There is a lot of info in this cooler and mounting it, orientation, etc. over there and in this thread.
following cancellation/postponement of another small case, im really glad i have my a4 sitting next to me.
For some reason, I got nearly 10C lower temp with my Cryorig C7 than with my Thermolabs LP53 on prime95, with the same Noctua fan and fan curve. I know you guys will say things like heatsink not seated properly or too much thermal paste etc, but I'm back on my Cryorig and I'm too lazy to do any retesting.
I think your heatsink isn't seated properly or you used too much/little thermal paste.
Yep, I went from a C7 to a LP53 and got lower temps.....(and less noise)
to be clear, you mean you went from a c7 with a noctua fan to a lp53 with a noctua fan?
I have been wondering about this for ages, I would love to see a proper test by someone who has both of the top combinations.
No, was a C7 with C7 standard fan, to a LP53 with Noctua fan in the interest of full disclosure

i am waiting evga 1080ti ftw3
very nice.....a list of all the stuff with prices would be helpful.....is that a 1070 video card? I love how it actually fits in that box! (like it was made to fit). I live out of motels 80% of the time so that small box is getting very appealing lol List your hardware in a sig so people dont ask the same questions over and over!

Thanks for clarifying that
Anybody up for doing a proper comparison between the C7 and the LP53 both with the noctua a9? The C7 is so much easier to get, cheaper, can be mounted to AMD sockets and it is bigger than the LP53, although not full copper...
You have 12.5TB of storage in your build...holy cow!!
Where are the tests?
5+5 is not 10. It's 9 at best. That's how HDD mathematics works.
In my experience the c7 is about 3 Celsius better. I think it was because of that on an Asus z270i you can place a LP53 only in a position with the fins horizontal and the airflow fully blocked by the memory on one side and significantly blocked by the VRM heatsink on the other side. I've seen people screw that heatsink out but don't think that worth it in my case.
Thanks for the info, I agree taking of the heatsinks a is a bit to much of a pain..
I think I'll get a a9x14 and fit it to the wraith spire, milled down in height a bit to fit, and wait to see how Dan's cooler turns out, getting so frustrated waiting for a Ryzen itx board! I don't think I'll get the biostar either as I want WiFi and Bluetooth....
how much worse are the temps if the I/O shield is installed?
