  1. Hiho everybody, haven't posted in ages, but since I'm currently in the middle of upgrading my system, I thought I'd ask for some advice here. Some background first: Moving into a new, tiny apartment for university and I simply don't have the space for my Be Quiet Dark Base 800 anymore. What I'm trying to do now is to put my pc into the shelf that's standing right beside my desk (IKEA Kallax). Since I'm upgrading my CPU I also have to get a new Motherboard, problem being that I'm somewhat budget constrained and the cheapest mini ITX board I can get is twice as expensive as a half decent micro ATX board. What I need, but can't seem to find is a case that fits both a micro ATX motherboard and a roughly 170mm long PSU inside a case that's not wider and taller than 33cm. It should also fit a GPU at 300mm length and optionally a CPU cooler at 160mm tall. The price should, if possible, be below 60€. The rest doesn't really matter. I already thought about using a test bench, but all the ones I could find were 100€+, and I'm not 100% prepared to pay that price for a sheet of metal with some screws in it. Thanks in advance
  2. I'm sorry to have to break it to you, but there's no way for you to upgrade to iOS 9. The oldest iOS version you can upgrade to is 10.3.1, which might be jailbreakable in the next couple of months, but who knows. If you decide to do that you better do it quickly, since this version could be unsigned in the next few days. The reason for this is that Apple unsignes all their firmwares a couple of weeks after a new version was released. The only way to bypass this is if you have an SHSH2 blob of the version you want to up-/downgrade to. To get those you would have had to have that iOS version installed on your device at a time when it was still signed, though. I personally don't understand why Apple is doing this, but nobody can really do anything about it.
  3. That sounds way more entertaining than it probably was, but definitely good to know. But I have to say that I didn't experience anything alike. Of course the fans were hovering around the set rpm, though I guess that this is to be expected.
  4. I was using HWMonitor and corsair link, as well as the MSI command center to monitor everything, while stress testing with heavy load. I believe that as long as the sensor readings weren't wrong, the pumps, as well as the fans were running at the correct rpm.
  5. Holy... Thanks for telling me, seriously. I would have probably thrown it out if I didn't know that. Just submitted a support ticket.
  6. I'm now officially fed up with this now most likely completely broken piece of cooling equipment. After getting close to 100°C after not more than half a minute put the intel stock cooler and ordered a Noctua NH-D14. Thank you for the help, but I guess it was all for a dying aio water cooler.
  7. With the fans turned the other way I the temps are hovering at about 70°C with the cover off and 77°C with the cover on. I'm going to give it a try. I did give it a try and it made the whole situation a lot worse, once more. I now get idle temps of just under 60°C. About the tim. I am not really sure what tim stands for, but I'm assuming you mean thermal compound. I'm using Arctic MX-4 Thermal Compound and I applied it by putting a little bit of it on the middle of the CPU and then applying the cooler. From the looks of it, it did spread evenly.
  8. There you go. The attic has about 4cm of clearance, while the radiator takes up a little over 2.5cm of that. So there's only less than 1.5cm left for the air to flow. One thing that worries me though, is that even with the top and side panels off I only get down to ~45°C in idle and marginally under 70°C when stresstesting, which still seems quite high to me. So maybe the top cover wasn't the problem after all?
  9. I did just that yesterday, but it didn't really change anything at all. But I think I figured out the problem. It's my case. The clearance from the radiator to the top part of the case is only a few centimeters,which takes airflow to a somewhat non existent level. Hopefully this won't hurt my CPU in the long run, but right now there's not much I could do about it. The spot the radiator is in right now is the only one I can put it in. All the other spots are for 120/140mm radiators only.
  10. I would definitely make good use of a Blade Stealth. There's always a use for a potent ultrabook in a high school student's life, considering that my current laptop has problems compiling a console application without the processor maxing out.

    Ps4 pro !

    I think at this point a Playstation is the far more logical thing to have (at least for people who own a gaming pc), since Xbox exclusive will in most cases mean Xbox and PC exclusive. 4k bluray would be nice to have, but it's not a must for Sony to include it, considering how many other things ps has going for it. The frequent sales on the ps store for example.
  12. This. Plus the better performance on psvr. The whole system with the vr headset and the tracking camera is 50€ cheaper than an HTC Vive alone. (at least where I live) And I can now finally play all the exclusive titles that I was never able to play before. Especially with Microsoft releasing a lot of exclusives to pc. Amazing times we live in.
  13. After some time of gaming the air is pretty hot, but it usually is cold if under load for less than 30 minutes.
