Oh my god, this build is beautiful. The SFX power supply must help in decreasing GPU temps.
Hello, I'm back! :)
I am currently considering whether or nor I should purchase the SF600 SFX power supply for more GPU clearance as my current card runs a bit on the hot side. What are your GPU temps now with the SF600?
Thank you, this build is beautiful!!
Nice build, I was just wondering if you can upload more pics near the GPU and PSU area since I am also considering changing my current PSU for an SFX variant for my Define Nano S case and I would like to know how much room there is in between the two, many thanks!!
Since you have cash, you might as well make a trip to your local pharmacies like CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens and purchase a Paypal My Cash card and redeem it into your account.
I no longer have it but it held up pretty well when I had it even though I couldn't crank up max settings on all games at 1080p.
The ratings you see on the Acer Predator's XB241H bmipr amazon page are from the XB271H bmipr variant. The 24'' panel was a new addition to the Acer Predator amazon auction page and there has been no recent reviews for that new monitor.
If you want to purchase one of these two, you have to find out which monitor outdoes the other but I can list the similarities for you down below:
Advantages of the Acer Predator XB241H over the AOC G2460PG:
Acer Predator XB241H is a better monitor compared to the AOC G2460PG even though it cost a bit more.
After reading the list of replies, if you listed accurate information on the eBay selling page confirming that the item you sold is as you claimed used, then the buyer should not be able to appeal the case and request a full refund.
If this was directly through paypal to avoid fees, you need to include additional information or documentation of your conversations between you and the buyer about the condition of the item and the number of accessories or items that is included with the base item.
If you claimed that you told your buyer that the item was used and the buyer said he didn't know, I think his intentions to scam you was already quite apparent unless your clarification was unclear.
Did you make a Paypal account just for withholding balances without the verification of credit/debit and banking confirmations? That might explain why you can't transfer money directly to your account but I propose that you go to a friend or family member and ask for a credit or debit card and transfer money to your paypal account for the time being.
But wouldn't cutting off that strip cause the mounting bracket to lose support for holding up heavy GPU's?
Are you sure it's not a design flaw? Lookit the triangular exhaust holes, a row of it is blocked off by the shroud itself and the middle row of holes is covered by the computer cases mounting bracket.
idk man. The exhaust bracket design did not take the cases mounting solutions into consideration, the exhaust holes are so damn small and the metal shroud itself covers a whole row of triangular exhaust holes. But yes, the FE edition coolers are much quieter compared to the older reference coolers. 50% fan speed runs at 2000RPM~ and 60% fan speed runs at 2500RPM~. I have my card run at 60% fan speed once I go past 50C load and my card throttles at 83C even with unrestricted airflow path to cool the card. Even with the high pressure, hot air isn't really exiting the card fast enough for cool air to run through the heatsink.
I don't have the guts to mess with a $699 card and possibly risk losing the warranty..
Yeah, I should just get another non-reference card.
Exhaust brackets like those would be perfect, same with the EVGA High Airflow Bracket!
The shroud extends and blocks off the bottom row of triangular exhaust holes which cuts off a majority of expelled heat that the cooler can potentially direct out. I don't know why NVIDIA chose to do that since the previous reference models like the GTX 700 and GTX 900 has that bottom row opened up and not blocked by the shroud. The GTX 1080/1070 FE all have this issue...
This build is as beautiful as the real Tiffany Hwang.
GTX 980 Ti SLI should be much faster than a single GTX 1080 since it was claimed that the GTX 1080 was only faster than an GTX 980 SLI but the new pascal cards seem to be able to yield high core clock speeds. I seen a few speculations and articles claiming that the GTX 1080 can yield 2-2.5GHz overclocks on the core speed from the stock 1.6GHz~. Even the GTX 1080 that was run in the launch convention was already running at 2.1GHz with the founders/reference edition, I expect even higher clock speeds on the non-reference cards or with liquid cooling. With 40-50% overclocks on the core, the GTX 1080 should surpass even the GTX 980 Ti SLI.
Considering the GTX 1080 is suppose to run at 180W then we can expect the power consumption of the GTX 1070 to be around 150-160W since the GTX 980 and GTX 970 operated at 165W/145W perspectively. Your current PSU will able to power the new cards with ease as the GTX 770 uses more power to run and your motherboard will be able to accommodate the new cards since both your card and the GTX 1070 uses the PCI 3.0 x16 lanes.
You won't expect any non-reference model cards until a little before or after the official release date for the GTX 1080 in May 27th and GTX 1070 in June 10th. Considering the superior cooling with the non-reference coolers, it should be higher clocked and run much cooler and it'll be much cheaper since NVIDIA set their Founders Edition much higher was to keep other board retailers to be within the $599 MSRP to their own $699 MSRP.
The GTX Titan X isn't a consumer based graphics card, the GTX 1080 is. 16GB VRAM....24GB VRAM...It's a consumer/gaming card, what's with all this VRAM capacity that would never be fully utilized. You are being to unrealistic here.
The VGA port is incredibly outdated with poor analog visuals and the number of resolution it supports is much less than a single DVI.
It's pretty obvious NVIDIA likes to play with gamers appetite by displaying raw specifications and performance without any real statics or benchmarks. No benchmarks keep gamers speculating and desperate and Huang knows from the presentation in Texas, he's got a huge number of gamers in the bag who would buy this crap outta the card once it launches.
At the convention, Huang claimed that the GTX 1070 was faster than the GTX Titan X. So yes, the GTX 1070 is faster than the GTX 980 Ti.
Another Define Nano S Build! +1
That ITX power supply gives you much more clearance for airflow.
Noctua has top notch metal backplate that spreads the weight across the board, it'll be fine if OP doesn't shake or throw his case around lmao.
It mounts perfectly on the back of the Cooler but there is only a few centimeters of clearance between it and my rear exhaust fan. Besides, pull setups on Air Coolers doesn't look as great as push configurations. :(
Sorry for not specifying the ram clearance issue with the mounted 135mm fan. If the fan is mounted the way it is in the photos, even with low profile ram, you would have to mount the fan higher than the heatsink for accommodation. I forgot to factor in the fan's compatibility with my case and it's costly....
The cooler can mount 120mm fans but the rubber paddings doesn't align well with smaller fans other than the 135mm because it's much wider.
Nice compact Xeon Build!!
How were you able to find an EVGA GTX 980 Backplate? They are out of stock everywhere and I'm unable to get one.
Wowza, Dual PC!!
The build looks pretty good but the compact Noctua Cooler with the dual fans looks very odd to me...
This is not just your ordinary Noctua Build when all the intake fans are Noctua's static pressure fans...
This is incredible!!!!!!!!
Thanks! These fans work great for compact cases and mITX builds.
I think you should contact Noctua via email and see if they provide compatibility with 80mm fans for that particular CPU Cooler but given their great customer support, they would probably ship you a few of those clips free of charge as long as you ask nicely.
The relative size of the twin heatsink should be able to accommodate a 80mm fan but I'm not sure if the retention clips supports 80mm fans.
I had a similar issue when I had my PC running a few browsers while I was away and my computer restarted from an update without my consent and now, I'm stuck with a buggy and sometimes unresponsive start menu.
There is no real option in completely disabling Windows 10 Home Edition updates unless you have the PRO version.
I already did the clean install via Windows reset feature, it completely wipes the drives without a chance to recover the wiped data and it installs the updated Windows 10 version onto the computer but the problem is still there after the re-installation. And the windows.old file would not be deleted with disk clean up and my file shredders. Only thing good this Windows 10 update has done was free up more of my windows drive space...
It was an offered free upgrade for all Window 7, 8 and 8.1 users during the release of Windows 10.
There is an option to do a clean reset via Windows reset feature by wiping all the drives before installing windows but it's a longer process which takes like an hour or more to do. The sudden update broke a few of my application icons and games so I'm stuck with this until they patch this crap..
I did not expect Windows 10 to update without my consent as the computer was on running a few browsers and videos and it possibly forced restarted my computer to proceed with the update..
I have a spare CX600 that is still powering my old i5 650 PC.
AF Fans to pull air into the case and SP Fans for radiators and heatsinks. Dust filters aren't that restrictive compared to radiators and heatsinks so you can just slap AF fans in the front and it'll still cool your internal components regardless.
If you do remove that top exhaust fan, it will look great with the Moduvent on top.
Another incredible Nano S build!
But have you considered removing the top exhaust fan so that you can mount back the Moduvent Panel on top?
Noise levels will drop and it will prevent dust from falling in between the mesh.
That's what I thought but the sleeved cable wouldn't secure itself into my 24-Pin motherboard cable. The newer sleeved extension cable I bought went right in with no difficulty.
yay another define nano s build~~!!!
I gave up on it and just ordered a new one, the PSU sleeved extension cable was able to fit into my brothers 24-PIN cable and not mine. So I guess the cable wasn't compatible with all power supplies..Thanks for the help though!
Oh hey, nice of you to come visit again with same comment.
Is this a fake build by any chance? This build looks nice and the pictures are crisp clear but you only provide only two pictures when you post many other pics for your other builds.
Well, even if you managed to checkout on the order, OutletPC will probably cancel the orders since they lose $300 for each STRIX GTX970 that they sell off lol.
OutletPC will probably void or cancel all orders on the misplaced item. They would lose so much money if they sold a few dozen of these at $35 lmao.
If it's two cards, I'll buy both the GTX 680's for $225 in a heartbeat!
