    cases with vertical gpu mounting would be much needed

    What are your planned system specs?


    Is the vertical mount needed or really wanted? For a gaming PC, native PCI-E vertical slots can be detrimental to cooling performance which can result in a loss in FPS.

    for those power savings the price of a platinum/titanium rated unit isn't really covered. better off to get something gold rated which will provide most of the benefit at much less cost, as gold rated PSU's are pretty common and inexpensive these days. Just look at the TXm series  - 80+ gold and it's not even fully modular

    I should mention I got the 650 P2 with a $40 MIR, making the price effectively $80 before tax and shipping.

    Here is my fan curve, doesn't appear to spike Imo.


    Definitely doesnt have a dramatic spike like one would expect given the situation. How long have you owned the card?


    You could try switching to X1 to see if the software behaves more normally. X1 funtions nearly identically to MSI afterburner, but takes advantage of the extra fetures built into EVGA cards. (Not always necessary though, I used Afterburner on my 970 FTW for years)

    It only happens when the temperature reaches 77 or higher and stops when it reaches 76. So It's A software issue? I happens regardless if I use software or not. Sorry If I sound a little new. I'm not very experienced on this kinda of stuff

    It's possible that your GPU fan curve is set to jump the fan speed after 76ºC. Can you check to see how the fan curve is set up and report back?

  5. The EVGA fans are asynchronous, meaning the fan spinning up is connected in software to the heat sink on the CPU die rather than the VRMs. In order to fix this, you need to use Precision X1 because other softwares dont detect the other fans as fans (I have to do this using the slightly older XOC for both my 1070ti FTW2 [Project ITNOS] and 1080ti FTW3 [Main rig in Sig] which have 2 and 3 fans respectively.) Using that software, i can lock all fans to ramp up with GPU temperature rather than be individual to VRM temps. 


    Misread the question. It could be a glitch in the softwares ability to properly read the temperatures, making the software think the card is spiking in heat, so it ramps up the fan to compensate but the realizes everything is okay so it lowers it back down. How often does this happen? It shouldn't break the card or damage it, but if it's happening a lot it would cause unnecessary wear and slightly shorten the lifespan of the card.

    How notable?

    To be honest I got this PSU in a few days before the GPU so I made the swap weeks ago. The old PSU with the 970 and 750ti draws about 240w from the wall, where as the 650 drew about 225. Not a huge cost savings considering my power bill is about 10-12c per KwH, but hey! It's something. 

    The dual 1070ti's run at 280W now, cant tell you how the bronze would do because it doesnt have enough PCI-E connectors.

  7. First off, the Dark Rock Pro 4 is about 163mm, not 159

    Secondly, it will fit. Proof? Example builds from PCPP








    But TV! Some of those are the NZXT H500, not the H510! You may say. To which I respond; the only thing that truly changed was the addition of USB-C and a new "Elite" variation. The core frame of the case is pretty much the same.

    I'd have to get another power supply but I'm considering setting that up to fold 24/7 if I can figure out how to optimize it for that (linux install, etc)

    I recommend a high efficiency PSU (platinum or titanium) since it's on 24/7. It might not "pay for itself" depending on your power/cost rate, but going from bronze to platinum was notable for me using a Kill-a-watt meter.

    As of right now, I do not have anything connected to the motherboard. I know I have the sata's connected but I am adding some cable extensions tomorrow and I will have a look to see if there is a cable to connect to the motherboard. I did not see one when I set it up originally. 

    That connector is important, as that's the signal to tell the fans to spin and how fast. The SATA just provides the power to actually run 8 fans off a single connector, as normally you're limited anywhere from 3-6 fans depend on the amp rating found on the fan hub. (Motherboard headers usually can only supply up to 1A amount of power)

    No budget 


    Looking for a REALLY GOOD air flow case. Easy to clean dusts out and one with a handle would be nice but not necessary.


    I'm assuming this is an ATX case? ATX cases with handles are rare unless you're buying specially sized ATX cases like the Sliger Cerberus X, otherwise they're DIY addons. 


    Here's a slightly filtered Canadain PCPartPicker list of cases



    Since you like the Meshify C, I'll make other suggestions based around that


    Lancool 2

    Phanteks P300A (Upcoming in march 2020)

    Coolermaster NR600

    Phanteks P400A (multiple versions of this depend on how many fans and what flavor of RGB)

    Coolermaster MB511 RGB

    Corsair 275R Airflow

    Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG

    (say the Corsair one)

    Corsair RGB is entirely proprietary to their own products unless you DIY and rewire their products.


    To add even more bad news, your motherboard has 12V 4 pin RGB headers, but your case comes with ARGB fans which are 5V (and usually 3 pin) which are NOT interchangeable. Fortunately, your case should come with it's own controller, but I dont believe it will be able to connect to the motherboard in anyways, so you'll be limited in the modes available to you.There is a regular RGB edition of this case that comes with the 4 pin RGB headers which you would be able to plug in to your motherboard directly.


    Here's Bitfenix's PDF on their RGB ecosystems and all the different connection methods. 


  12. Looks like the 305mm max length is based on having a side radiator


    The case itself is 480mm long. If you dont mount a side radiator, you can mount basically any GPU on the market today in there without issue. That being said, the Meshify C comes with a top dust filter, and there are no fans on the top exhaust unless you plan on populating it with fans. It also has a 120mm rear fan for the main exhaust so your cant wont block all of it.

    Where could I sell a old PSU that’s 4 SLI/Crossfire Compatible??? Would consider a swap even. Because it’s a high power Setup.

    The LTT forums has a Classifieds section that unlocks when you have 100 posts. Alternatively, r/hardwareswap on reddit is a good place, but you'll need to provide the moderators there with some extra info if you're not a frequent user of that site (like I wasnt when I bought a GPU there)
