  1. Hey guys, i've been having fun with my ITX build(my wallet hasn't, though), and while i'm mostly happy with everything(wraith max crappy rgb aside), there's something that's been plaguing my brain with doubt: DC and PWM fans, specially when using a fan hub. A while ago i changed my riotoro cr280 for a fractal design define nano S(great little case, if you cant get something smaller), i had bought 3 120mm id-cooling PWM fans, which were working relatively well(really noisy), but the nano s came with 2 140mm on front and a 120mm on the back, all from fractal design, so i switched to those. still i lost the ability to configure the curves, because the fans are DC. If i connect one of my PWM fans in the first port of the hub, i get to configure it, but i'm afraid that might cause problems for the other fans (maybe spin faster that they should? dunno). Now i'm thinking if i should get 2 120mm and 2 140mm phanteks PWM fans to replace my actual ones, but still the 120mm have a diferent max RPM than the 140mm ones. So i'm not sure, i feel i should have 2 hubs, one for 140mm and one for 120mm fans(which i cant because my mobo has 1 chasis fan header other than AIO pump and CPU). Also i'm kinda worried the hub will cause more problems than benefits(it's not sata powered, only connects to the fan header), maybe i should get a fan controller? if so, which one can you guys recommend? in case i didn't explain myself well enought(which i think i didnt) TL; DR;: i dont know if: 1. it's worth using a PWM fan over a DC fan. 2. the main fan on a fan hub can cause the other fans any problems(specially if they are DC and the main one is PWM, or if all are PWM, if the size/specifications are diferent) 3. what's the ideal situation for using more fans than the mobo has headers, is a fan hub good enough? should i get a fan controller? Thanks
  2. as i said, this image is with my old PSU, right now there's a lot less clutter.
  3. Hey guys, recently i moved to an ITX, after a lot of suffering because i cant get stuff in my country, i ended up buying a riotoro cr280, and finally an SFX PSU and a fan hub(also an asus rtx 2080, which is awesome) , and with it, now i have the space to put a 120mm fan next to the PSU(basically, in front of it, right under the blower of the GPU, images of the old psu at the end of the post). Considering my fan hub has space for 4 fans, i've been thinking if i should add another fan(having 3 intake fans, two on the front, one from the bottom, and one exhaust on the back) or just move the lower intake fan there,but having 3-intake and 1 exhaust kinda isnt clicking, so i wanted to ask for opinions. Should i move the lower intake fan to the bottom? or keep it there? Also, if i add another fan, should it be exhaust or intake? if it's exhaust, what's the best place to put it?(there's space for 2 exhaust on the top) right above the CPU? or closer to the front? thanks
  4. TY.

  5. Hey, i've got a question about airflow in the case.(specifically, about fan configurations and intake vs exhaust) Should i ask it here? or make another thread in the air cooling forum?
  6. temps(tested the cpu with prime95 and the GPU with furmark): Corsair 400c riotoro cr280
  7. here are some pictures of the build, tbh i cant believe how small it is lol. when i test temps in this i'll upload it
  8. Forgot to ask, what tests can i use to test the temps on my old case and the new one?
  9. Yeah, sadly. Ended getting a ritoro cr280 (it's kinda like a poor man's define nano s), hopefully at some moment i'll be able to get an sfx PSU with an adaptor so that the GPU can breath(right now it's not a problem as my vega 56 has a blower fan)(i'm saying hopefully, because, again, sfx PSU are non-existent). Thanks everyone for the help though, might post some photos when the build is done
  10. exactly. been thinking i could get an inwin a1 plus(though i would end up paying something like 470 US$ just from taxes and shipping) or a meshify mini C, which, while it's a really nice case(wanted to get a meshify before deciding to get something ITX) would be kinda crappy since i wanted something small.
  11. thanks. still it seems like my country doesnt like itx or something(cant get it anywhere here) saw a video by bitwit and read in a couple of places that itx cases with the standard atx form factor (horizontal GPU with PSU under it) have problems with GPU airflow on non-blower GPUS. i know this isnt exactly the theme of the topic but wanted to ask how much of this is true? should i just get a mATX case?(i can get a meshify C in my country which is a case that i really liked, might be a better idea?)
  12. quick question: does this happen on the fractal design define nano s? i'm pretty sure there's a lot more space than on the phanteks, but wanted to ask anyway
  13. Hey guys, i'm looking to get an ITX case but where i live i've been struggling to get anything other than phantex evolv ITX tempered glass.(wanted an h210i tbh but it seems there's no way to get it over here) i've been reading all over the internet that the evolv ITX has really crappy aiflow because the front panel chokes the intake. Does this still happen in the tempered glass edition of the case? Thanks
  14. finally found someone selling the wraith prism, funnily enough it's pretty good compared to my hyper 212(in the sense that it's not a much hotter), and not noisier(or at least, not noticiably so) tested both with prime 95 in small FFT Hyper 212: Wraith Prism: now i just need to get an ITX Case, sadly my country keeps sucking at economics and politics so there's still nothing anywhere(exept the Evolv ITX(tempered glass version) but i've heard the front panel chokes airflow, so i dont think i'll go for that)
