  1. @brob Hmm the x62 will only fit on the bottom of the case I think I'm gonna take my chances with an air cooler. I ordered the Noctura NH-U9s. I'll see how heavy it is. I'm not really sure what to do now.
  2. @brob Just in case the NXT x62 does not fit in front and I still want to try out liquid cooling do you think the Kraken X42 would be ok? https://www.nzxt.com/products/kraken-x42 I'd try installing it like this then and move the power supply to the front https://www.gamecrate.com/build-asus-980-ti-silent-vr-ready-mini-pc/13145
  3. @brob What if I just had the computer lying on it's side whenever I'm actually using it ? That should solve the problem right?
  4. @brob Hey so I got this feedback regarding the AIO on another forum. I'm curious what your thoughts are on this? "One thing to be aware of: AIOs with the pump integrated into the CPU block should generally not be mounted with the radiator below the pump/block. With a setup like this, any air in the AIO will gather in the pump/block rather than safely in the radiator, and as the loop ages and permeation and evaporative losses add up, you run the risk of losing water flow due to there being too much air in the pump housing (which can also burn out the pump if it gets too bad). In other words: an AIO installed in this orientation will have a shorter lifespan and require more maintenance. It'll still likely last you nicely for some years, but shorter than if installed in any other orientation." "Moving the case around a lot would mean you run a slight risk of getting air in your pump no matter what, but then again it ought to be rather trivial to just tilt the case a bit with the pump running to get the air into the radiator instead if the radiator is mounted to the front. The best way to do this - if it fits and is possible to route the tubes that way - would be for the ports on the radiator to be at the bottom. That way, any air in the rad would stay at the very top with little chance of moving around (unless you lay the case flat or flipped it over)."
  5. I have this motherboard which claims to be able to handle a max 128 gb RAM https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MPG-Z390M-GAMING-EDGE-AC/Specification Though I'm thinking of only getting 32 gb RAM to begin with I'd rather not have to completely replace them ( = waste money?) if I eventually upgrade to 128 gb. I'm trying to find the correct 32gb single stick of RAM for now. It looks like one single 32 gb stick costs about the same as 2 x 16 gb sticks. 2x 16gb https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GCWQ6AM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 1x 32gb ( is this compatible with my motherboard?) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015BJ35GU?psc=1&pf_rd_p=8fa6ba1a-2072-45aa-b31a-1a2b1219cb02&pf_rd_r=CET70Q1G7XA24SVFWGX0&pd_rd_wg=qYmja&pd_rd_i=B015BJ35GU&pd_rd_w=gN1le&pd_rd_r=798af6b8-967d-4e6b-bc83-9cb2a4016079&ref_=pd_luc_rh_crh_rh_sbs_vsc_02_02_t_img_lh# What do you guys suggest? I can see myself upgrading to 64 gb in a year or two. Which would equal spending around $400 total but then the concern is the day I upgrade to 128gb I will end up replacing the $400 worth of RAM entirely to get $800 of new RAM. Which means over all spending $1200 on RAM!? Right now 128gb sounds outrageously like an unnecessary overkill but there used to be a time 32gb was huge amount! or perhaps the prices will go down alot by the time I actually need to use 128 gb?
  6. Hi Guys!So I'm in the process of putting together my very first custom built computer and I just realized.. what do I do if it's raining or in general what's the safest way to take it around with me?Something with wheels would be nice.. I'm guessing a rolling carrier-on bag would the best solution. Any precautions I need to take?

  7. Hi brob, Thanks you so much for your invaluable advice and suggestions. You've been a great help. I would not have known what things to look out for. I went ahead and ordered all the parts I need. Here's what I got: PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU Intel - Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor Purchased For $494.79 CPU Cooler NZXT - Kraken X62 Rev 2 98.17 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler Purchased For $149.89 Thermal Compound Arctic Silver - 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver 3.5 g Thermal Paste $6.30 @ Amazon Motherboard MSI - MPG Z390M GAMING EDGE AC Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Purchased For $178.00 Memory Kingston - HyperX Predator 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory Purchased For $204.99 Video Card Asus - GeForce RTX 2080 8 GB ROG Strix Gaming OC Video Card Purchased For $799.99 Power Supply Corsair - SF 750 W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully Modular SFX Power Supply Purchased For $179.99 Case Fan Corsair - ML120 Pro 75 CFM 120 mm Fan Purchased For $24.33 Case Fan Corsair - ML120 Pro LED Blue 75 CFM 120 mm Fan Purchased For $24.33 Case Fan Corsair - ML120 Pro LED Blue 75 CFM 120 mm Fan Purchased For $24.33 Custom Cerberus Sliger Micro ATX Case Purchased For $272.00 Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $2358.94 Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-05-12 17:50 EDT-0400 I think all I have left to buy now is the thermal paste. Is there any particular one you recommend or are they pretty much the same? I also got dust filters from https://www.demcifilter.com/sliger-cerberus I think I'm all set. I cannot think of anything else I may need. For airflow set up I'm thinking of copying the set up of the video I linked.... where he has fans blowing in from the front and bottom and out on the top. . For power supply placement I chose the SFX/SFX-L Plate configuration from https://www.sliger.com/products/cases/cerberus/ Looking at the motherboard it looked like placing the power supply in the front like the SFX/SFX-L Internal option it may not even fit. I guess I won't know until everything arrives. https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MPG-Z390M-GAMING-EDGE-AC/Specification If you advise otherwise differently about anything certainly let me know. Thanks again

I'm not sure what mounting options I need for the case.I guess I would need one SSD for the OS and one 3.5 HD to start with. Also what's the best set up for the power supply and fans?
  9. Thanks for the quick reply. That case does look nice. I'm trying to find something more compact which is what I liked about the Project Orthrus one. I don't need silly lights and prefer not to have glass panels. I guess one on the side is OK. I just don't want to have to worry about breaking it. As I mentioned before I would most likely be taking the computer to work and back home every day. I only plan to use one graphics card.

I'm not sure what is best and I'm sure finalizing the case would help determine this. I think the motherboard, processor and video card are pretty much decided but I'm open to suggestions. I already have hard drives, a monitor, mouse and keyboard I can use.
  10. I'm interested in building a portable pc workstation to use for 3D Animation, VFX, VR & Game development. I do a lot of contract work onsite and always end up using my own computer so durability and portability are a must! I really like the MSI Trident X series but the two things it's lacking are: i - the 32 GB RAM limit ii - and being a custom case & motherboard I don't know whether this means I would be able to upgrade the video card later on when the time comes I'd like to be able to use a Micro ATX motherboard like this one: https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/MPG-Z390M-GAMING-EDGE-AC so that I can have more RAM and PCI slots and use a full size graphics card like an GTX 1080 or RTX 2080 For cases something similar to this would be nice? But it sounds like this just for itx motherboards? Project Orthrus https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/project-orthrus-smallest-sli-matx-case-v2.835/ Others cases I have been looking at are: Thermatake Core G3 - sounds good too but reviews all say they are very cheap quality? https://www.thermaltake.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00002936 Cerberus http://www.sliger.com/products/cases/cerberus/ Riotoro CR1080 https://www.riotoro.com/cr-1080 The more I try to research it just gives me a headache! Anyone else also building a portable workstation computer for similar use? I could definitely use some guidance here.
