    No, not yet, for the custom cables I'll need several days to dismantle all the components, measure everything, make/cut/sleeve the cables, test the new cables and then reinstall everything in the case. This is too valuable "game time" that I'd rather spent gaming now I'll see what the future brings

    if anyone has a Zotac card with an Asus AURA sync compatible motherboard, I just did a mod to enable the full rgb
    capabilities of the card, not just the 6 or 7 ones in the spectra firestorm utility from Zotac.

    Obligatory little video montage with epic music:



    Images of the mod in the video description. Enjoy!

    Sure. I'm going to be comparing it against the l9i though. That's all I got.
    Pretty happy with l9i's performance tho. 8700K 4.3ghz@1.04V getting 60c delta T in prime95 8K in place FFTs 10min run right now.

    Got the c7 cu just because copper looks cool :D t's probably going to be 2 weeks till it arrives.

    And now that the c7 cu is finally out, just need that silverstone 500w fanless unit to come out.
    My build is going to double in weight with both of those in there.

    edit:
    It's delidded with CLU inside the IHS, but no other mods.

    Wow nice! Is that 8700k delided? I'll prolly grab an 8600. No ryzen asus mitx to be found in my country + still a price premium for 8600k and above leaves me no choice.

    Good evening I am new on your forum and I have just acquired a dan cases A4-SFX V2. I traveled the majority of this forum and I found a lot of information to guide me to my installation. However even if I could see that some configurations are similar to mine, I wonder about the viability in time.

    I give you the components that I want to install.

    ASUS ROG STRIX Motherboard Z370-I Gaming.
    Intel i7 8700K.
    ASUS TURBO-GTX1070 8 GB graphics card.
    Power supply BE QUIET SFX L Power 500W.
    Crucial SSD MX300 1TB M.2.
    SAMSUNG SSD 860 PRO 500GB.
    G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4 (2x 8GB) 3000 MHz.
    Noctua NH-L9i.

    I wonder if the noctua is really enough to cool my 8700K, and what vcore I should put in the bios so that it does not heat too much. It's been a long time since I did not have a computer, I spent a few years on laptops. This case I like a lot and I would not kill my components when turning on. If I switch to watercooling that you advise me to take, I think my diet is too big to install the radiator.

    Thank you, your forum is at the top.
    Ps: sorry for my english ^^.

    What are you gaming temps on your CPU and GPU?
    Is the 92mm sufficient enough?
    If yes, then is awesome, goood job there!

    I feel sorry for that psu getting blasted by 300-400 watts of heat :(
    Interested in how high the water temp is in there while playing a demanding game through. Is that LCD screen reading water temp?

    The temperature is not good...(playing Witcher3). GPU is maintained at 60-70 Celsius degrees. But CPU is over 90 celsius degrees in realtemp.
    So I have several plans to lower the temperature.
    I will come back with detailed temperature data when I get a payday^__^

    Is your CPU delidded? Might be a solution if not? (Not sure if you mentioned this already)

    thats Sad man, would be cool if it was sufficient.
    a Delid on the CPU could work, but still that would give 15-20 degree, still hot af.

    The c7 cu just arrived at superbuy warehouse and they sent me a pic of what's in the box. It's going to be on the way to me soon.
    4626609315233_3_2_9jps5u.jpg
    For 58 dollars, its the same price as the lp53, but doesn't take 1-2 months to shipf rom Korea.
    If it performs the same or better it's a pretty good deal imo considering it fits on motherboards that the lp53 doesn't fit on and also supports am4 out of the box.

    Yeah, superbuy is a middleman for taobao shopping worldwide, if you want to have an easier time. They order for you, have the package sent to their warehouse, send you pics of the package like above and can help you pick a number of courier companies to ship to your location.

    You can order directly off the taobao seller using google translate if they offer worldwide shipping too.

    What specs? Honestly the fact that it works at all is nuts, especially with the gpu at those temps. How high do you have the fan running? And as someone else asked, did you delid?

    Nice, it took 2 days to ship from seller to warehouse, so pretty speedy so far.

    Nah I wanted the original copper. Not sure about the benefits of graphene coating. No one has properly tested it on heatsink yet, but I am very curious about it though.

    From the posts of other 8700k owners they delided it first then went with noctua and add multiple fans or aio. 8700k just runs pipping hot.

    You seem to have ordered a graphene coated c7, which is a service a taobao seller called grey whale sells. The fan is white with white sleeving, so I'm guessing it's the c7 cu coated in graphene, not the regular c7.
    The only way to be sure is to scratch some graphene off and see what color the fins are inside, I guess

    How much did you pay for it? Regular price is supposed to be 369 RMB.

    One seller is selling 2 options of the C7 Cu, pure copper and copper with graphene coating. Till now there is no advantage or disadvantage known. I found the first test in this chinese forum https://www.chiphell.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=1840437&extra=page=1&page=1&mobile=2. What I read is that the C7 Cu performance 1-2° better than the AXP-100 and is rated by 115-130 TDP. A seller is also selling fan clips for mounting a A9x14.

    The main problem will be the fan noise/turbulence. For this I think we need to lower the Mainboard 2-3mm and use fan duct of 6-7mm. The highly maximum of the Dan A4 is 50mm for CPU Cooler (48mm is with 2mm secure range.).

    Ye i see, i just did some research and some sells it in graphene coating, but is that trustworthy it could just be some shitty painting... And there is really no evidence for the graphene to work as, ppl claim grahpene-copper coating to dessipates heat 30% higher than normal copper...
    i see i did buy the graphene version of it, tho the seller had copper pictures on his sellpage on Taobao :(
