  1. Step 1 of testing: Pull out 1 stick of RAM and test just the second. Swap, retest. Put both in, and test again. See if any of that does anything. If nothing useful comes from that: Buy a 20$ (or so) SSD, so a 120GB (Or a cheap 250 if you can find one) and plug it in. Install windows on it clean, and then see if freezing happens. At a minimum, you'll be upgrading your experience across the board. (Trust me, it's worth the 20-30 bucks.)
  2. Okay I'm not going to be as downer as some of the others here are, but they're not entirely wrong. There are a LOT of limits to what you can do here. But you can definitely make a difference inside: Okay, here's what I would do: One, buy some zip strips, the tiny ones are fine for inside the case. Two, unplug everything related to the PSU (And SATA Cables) from inside the case: Unplug all the cables in the Orange bubbles. They're plenty easy to unhook. (The tall bubble over the bundle of wires? The main 24 pin, or whatever pins that system has, should be under it. NOTE: Do NOT start unplugging the super thin cords at the very bottom of the motherboard (The ones under the Red Box.) They're way more annoying to deal with plugging back in. But you can probably route them a little better once the mess of PSU wires is out of the way. Once everything is unplugged, start trying to separate out the cords individually, so you can see what goes where. Example: That cable can be freed up from the messy bundle, and just be wrapped up some to go from the PSU to that plug directly. There are at least a couple cords in there that aren't being used, once they're separated, you could stuff them on top of the CD Rom Drive, out of the way. But also, as mentioned, you need new thermal paste on the CPU, since you removed the HSF. Otherwise, it is what it is, there isn't a lot of change you can make to this system to improve things.
  3. you can get a fan splitter that'll do everything you need in the existing case. How many fans are you looking to run? https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=526&bno=60&tb=54&area=en
  4. Can't you just retrofit better fans into your H510i to make it silent? Nothing your listing is going to be that loud, so it should be plenty quiet. (Unless you meant 'I hate the glass sides and want another caase with no glass' )
  5. Are all the motherboard standoffs under the board on that edge? It might be the board flexing down?
  6. 50/50. You may get lucky or not, it's impossible to say. They can sometimes look at manufacture date by Serial Number, which would be older than your proof of purchase, but it is a chance still. Search your email. For reals. Or did you buy it from Newegg or Amazon or something? Look in your account there. I will say that when I've contacted Phanteks support they've been pretty awesome, but there are no guarantees in something like this.
  7. AiOs are not any quieter than an air cooler with good fans.
  8. you apparently never walked into Microcenter and saw a whole 4 PSUs in the entire section that should be loaded. Cuz that absolutely happened.
  9. You want an Inverted ATX Case. There are some out there, but not a ton. https://www.bequiet.com/en/case/1472 is one example. (You can take the whole thing apart and flip the parts upside down.)
  10. ^ Agreed, You're not asking very clear question, or possibly just to many and it's getting jumbled up. Can you elaborate a bit?
  11. I also have the Evolv ATX! I love the case! I've also had a lot of really good luck with Phanteks support when I reached out to them. The Enthoo Pro M SE: https://www.newegg.com/black-white-phanteks-enthoo-pro-m-se-atx-mid-tower/p/N82E16811854060?Item=N82E16811854060 Looks like it might tick your boxes, as well as offering external 5.25's if you want. (IcyDock maybe?)
  12. Any case is a silent case if you build it out right. The bestest, most noise-cancelling case ever will sound like a turbine if you put the wrong things in it. Any decent case will be quiet if you use the right internals. But to do silent, you're generally going to pay a bit more for the parts.
  13. Just don't make it a Linus DROP tips cake!
  14. I'm not sure it'll be possible in the space, but can you flip the radiator upside down? That's the wrong orientation for an AiO.
  15. I used one that was slightly bigger than that as an output for a 3rd screen at my last job. Worked fine. It wasn't displaying anything more high-test than Word or Youtube, though. Don't ask for it to do 3d.
