  1. I'm not asking about the card, I'm asking about the coolers. Most of the slap on gpu aio's I've seen still need 2 slots worth of space. I'm asking if there are any that fit within a single slot of space.
  2. Basically all in the title. Are there any gpu aio coolers (just the cooler, not gpu) that are single slot? Or are they all dual slot because of the pump?
  3. Can we reschedule this for the weekend? Kids go back to school that day
  4. Be careful? How about just don't use it? Also, relevant news article: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/08/ftc-must-scrutinize-hotspot-shield-over-alleged-traffic-interception-group-says/
  5. Is there a pump/res combo that will fit in a 1.5in x 1.5in x 6in space? If not is there a res that will fit? (could go with a cpu block with integrated pump)
  6. So I'm starting to think about my next rig with the announcement of threadripper and I'm wondering if a 360 rad in is enough for the ~500 watts an OC threadripper + 1080 ti can pull. I'm assuming it would need to be in push/pull, but would that be enough? Would I probably also need a thick high fpi rad? Or would I need 2x 240 rads to get enough cooling capacity?
  7. SLI on mini-itx. This has been done in a few pre-built sff gaming rigs and experimented with on smallformfactor.net/forum, so it can be done, but you have to know what you're looking for and do some digging to find any good information. An LTT video could really help make it more of a thing. Basically just pcie bifurcation to split itx's single pcie x16 slot into 2 x8 slots. As Linus has shown before, x8 is not an issue even with the highest end gpus. do a watercooled sli rig in a node 202 or the s4-mini edit: or make the world's smallest 2 gamers 1 cpu rig, the ultimate portable "1v1 me bro" build
  8. Did you read the whole post? I'm not asking about the stock cooler. I specifically listed 2 different low profile noctua coolers and the cryorig c7.
  9. though I suppose I could try to convince him to go with an hdplex and put an aio where the psu goes
  10. he's got a full length 1080, an AIO isn't happening.
  11. I've got a friend whose planning to update his system with am4 and a 1600 and shrink his build down to a node202 for travelling. He wants to be able to hit 4ghz though for gaming and is concerned that he may not be able to keep temps under control. Anyone have experience with ryzen oc in the 202? Can the cryorig c7 of noctua l9i with an extra 120mm slim fan or l9x65 handle the load for that?
  12. Probably none. The only cables that are really vulnerable to actually having issues due to emi are things like pcie extensions that are carrying tons of high speed data and are very sensitive to interference, but that's why most of them are shielded. It would take a TON of emi to interfere with things like power cables, and at that point you probably have other issues.
  13. yeah emi shouldn't be an issue. It only really effects longer un-shielded cables and the like.
  14. If you're worried about the case lasting, you can always put a nice heat resistant finish on it.
  15. As long as the wood is completely dry it shouldn't warp. My pc is still in an unfinished wood box, and it's been fine. As far as grounding, if you're really worried, you can always run a wire from one of the standoffs to ground on the psu, but it should be fine regardless.
