    Are you sure there's not something wrong with your PSU? I haven't noticed any noice coming from my SF600

    Yeah, is's okay. I used this PSU in my previous build in NODE 202 and it was okay. But now it spins it's fan to fast as I guess(

    I think that is the same header that Asus used, first in the Z270 and now in the Z370. The one in the Z370 is a 3.1gen2 header if I'm not mistaken.

    You should replace the fan with a Noctua A9x14 fan, you can buy an adapter from moddiy or plug the fan to an available MB header :)

    I wouldn't go around advising people to mod power supplies. Don't fuck with that if you don't know what you're doing.

    If you buy this case and can build your own computer in it you should also be qualified enough to unscrew the 4 screws and plug out the corsair fan and put in the Noctua fan in the SF600 tbh...

    I think most of the concerns are about the PSU Caps retaining charge, just discharge them by repeatedly pressing the power button before opening it

    I wish this bullshit would die off already. One batch at launch was noisy, and one of them made their way to Tomshardware, ergo ALL SF600's are noisy forever...

    I absolutely agree. I've been running my SF600 in my V1 case for such a long time and it powers a 7700K/1080Ti and here's the number of times I ever heard my PSU fan at all: ZERO. I've been saying SF600s are silent, period, many times, regardless of any reasonable load. But still this myth perpetuates. People still keep going and gimp themselves losing 150W of headroom and just to save 15 bucks or whatever and justify it by saying the SF600 is noisy. Jeez

    It is as if people with a noisy SF600 don’t read or understand what is said in this thread: a Corsair PSU that is not dead silent even under full load has an issue that is 100% covered by it’s 7-year (!) warranty. Contact Corsair or your seller and your PSU will be replaced!

    I contacted cryorig again, to see if the Cryorig C7 Cu ed. Was on schedule (late march)

    Here is the respond:
    “Hello Seb,


    Thank you for getting back to us. The estimated releasing time of the copper C7 is a little bit delayed, still in status of quality control.


    Regards,”

    Prob wont see a release before april i guess

    Oh my goodness that cooler is delayed forever. Good thing I'm still waiting for zen+ before starting my build (deciding between 2600x/8600k).

    thanks for this, I wanted to wait until april before I ask again, as last time I asked them they told me march (a few months back) - I really hope it is released before any new AM4 mITX Mainboards I might wanna get are released (going to buy the 2700X) :D
    I don't want to wait forever to finish this build, especially as I am switching to the DAN C4 with watercooling as soon as it gets delivered (i guess next year?) anyways ^^

    You're losing shots jenosmaverick ! :ROFLMAO:
    I managed to put it on two Sundays ago!
    It is not easy, you have to be very careful,
    with riser of course!
    the biggest risk is especially for the motherboard!
    Several people have assembled it, not just me! (y)

    Right, I was recalling a requirement that PC-mounted Type-C ports only serve USB spec 3.1 or greater. Perhaps I misremember, or this was a recommendation and not required.

    I think this is more on Intel. Apple's first Type-C port did not include Thunderbolt. Intel, by withholding gen2 speeds from its chipsets, pushed OEMs to provide gen2 via their Alpine Ridge controllers which, it just so happens, also provide Thunderbolt.

    TL;DR: if you want gen2 USB from Intel, you have to buy a Thunderbolt controller.

    Yeah, if you take a look at Asus's spec sheet the front panel USB Type C is running through an ASMedia controller:

    I'm going to go ahead and say we won't see USB 3.1 Gen 2 headers (and by extension, front panel Type C) standard on motherboards until intel integrates it into their chipsets.

    You can have a standard 92x25mm fan under PSU there is already made mounting for that in V2, you can also have a 92x14mm fan under the mobo/riser, tho you have to be very carefull not to break the risers soldering points.
    Try go up some post/pages i think it was D10S who had cramped a fan below the mobo.

    Saw his post already. I asked since I haven't seen anyone do it yet and was thinking it might not be possible. I'm really a newb into modding.

    I do not think its worth "trying" to cramp the 92mm fan down below the mobo and risk destroying the riser.

    I believe that we should never do things that we do not feel like doing!

    I repeat, a risk of compromising the riser or worse still the motherboard is,
    you have to be very delicate in handling the riser and when you screw the mobo,
    you have to be very careful because it will beat slightly on the fan, but I have it mounted and like me also other!
    (among the options also put the one that breaks the fan, but that, of the three, would be the least damage!)

    Honestly, you guys must understand that I move on a different platform:
    - the X299 motherboard generates a lot of heat
    - if you put the two M2 behind the motherboard, they suffer a lot behind, one of them is just behind the PCBs, suffers more
    - i9 CPUs to be mounted on this motherboard, generate much more heat than i5 i7 etc of Z platforms...
    So to dispel all this heat, something needs to be done, in our case.
    From what I see are very few who have mounted a 92 below, someone has put an 80, but most have nothing and are happy
    So the answer is:
    YES, you can feel comfortable even without a 92mm down there!

    If you have the V2 and not using the drivebays i recommend using a 92mm under the PSU getting as much airflow in the case is Always nice :)

    Well I just ordered a Be quiet 92mm as I wanted a complete dark theme build (don't wanna paint the noctua). I'll just let a friend of mine(custom pc builder) take a look and see what can we do about cooling. Imma start my build after holy week with a 8600k can't wait for my 2600x my laptop is seriously failing me at gaming. Thanks :D

    Edit: wow first time I saw 2 fans below!! Would let my friend really take a good look into this and we might actually try it with his expertise of course.

    Under the mobo you need a 14mm tall fan, i don't know if the Be Quiet or other brand have it...
    All we know how god is this NF-A9x14, but you must paint it black! ;)

    I do have an Akasa 80mm Slim fan underneath the mobo but to be honest temps didn't improve significantly - maybe 1-3°C.

    It was my original idea to cram a 92mm slim fan below the mobo.
    Honestly, just take the riser off the case, it's just 2 simple screws. Fit it back in when you are done installing the fan. Are people seriously trying to cram in a fan with the rise cable on? *facepalm*
