Haha good catch! I can't believe I forgot to include that. It was horizontal. The previous post has been updated.
I expected some improvement on 1080TI in vertical orientation, we should see at least some minor boost clock improvement if it's not hitting power limit (therefore not getting below target temp).
It looks like Paul did test his Sentry 2.0 with water cooling. I was getting worried that we wouldn't have anyone do a test with an AIO.
He did, but having a fan pull the air from the inside rather than cool the CPU with fresh air is, uhh, suboptimal? Also expecting to cool down OC'd 8700K with C7 alu which even had issues with proper mounting if you VRM components were too tall...
Yeah, it's great that someone finally did it, but on the other hand we saw how many things we should still improve in our manual, because he could get better performance than he did. For example, like Saper wrote, AIO's fan should be taking the air from outside of the case (page 13 of the manual), while in Paul's build it was cooling the radiator with the air from GPU section. Probably Paul made his video a lot earlier than we updated this page. Also this aluminium C7 fan might be problematic. As I remember, it had problems with proper connection with the surface of the CPU, because it layed on the nearby capacitors.
Nethertheless such reviews are also important because they make people to start asking questions, like: Why everyone could achieve better results in this and this situation, and why you couldn't repeat them. Some reviews are still to come, and maybe we will see some more AIO builds (I hope).
So when we'll be able to buy it?
Hi i searched the thread and internet but couldnt find the answers to my 2 questions.
Can the sentry 2.0 handle higher gpu's like the zotac mini itx cards (1070, 2070 and above) without modding the pci power connectors ? It was mentioned at the beginning of the thread but i cant find a proper conformation nor a resounding "no".
I think no because the gpu diagram is still the same in the 2.0 manual but i can hope right ?
Is the sentry 2.0 still the same sheet metal thickness as the 1.1 ?
Kind regards and thank you for the great product.
You mean people found you before link replaced timer. Damn! : D Still I think this are your friends or something like that.Ninjas!!!
Quick question: Did you have a time change last weekend? We updated the clock after that (-1 hour), so if you didn't refresh our website on your computer, then you probably had an old date. We would never to such thing like to make some "secret links" for our friends. There are no individual batches in this campaign, so what's the point?You mean people found you before link replaced timer. Damn! : D Still I think this are your friends or something like that.
Hey can you elaborate on serial numbers. How do those start on Sentry 2?
We checked our repeatability, and everything is ok (both assembling speed and the quality). Only issues we can expect are probably connected with the delivery time from our subcontractors and paper work for customs services. At this moment we do not know how Brexit will influence our external orders, so I do not know if such delays will occur or not. We will do everything on our side to manufacture all units as soon as possible.Also do you expect any issues with manufacturing like those rare cases that sometimes happen.
Does anyone have a link to pictures or videos of the case in grey?
I didn’t know there was going to be an option other than black. Very exciting.
Oh yeah that might be it I probably didn't refresh just so I could see time ticking downQuick question: Did you have a time change last weekend?

Thank you so much! I read through the page but the colors are close enough I couldn’t tell which was which. That gallery only showed the white version, but I’ll look closely at the indiegogo again.
I wasn’t sure if any of the review videos had gotten the Navy Grey version.
Is there any hope for a white model coming in a possible future campaign?
