  1. I'll give that a shot
  2. I would probably recommend upgrading the PSU. With all the upgrades you are interested in, you will approach 250 Watts, and you should always leave some extra power headroom as well.
  3. Hello, Just built a new system. My motherboard is the Asus ROG Strix x570-I. For some reason I do not have any audio through rear io. RealTek drivers are installed, straight from the asus website. The device manager does not recognize that speakers or headphones are plugged in. It only recognizes Nvidia High Definition Audio as a device. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers several times and looked around the internet for a while and I found this. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/all/realtek-audio-console-not-opening-gives-error/428d86bd
  4. The rad does have a fan mounted. If you look at an image of the evolv shift, you will see that there is room for another fan on the front wall of the case. I was originally planning on mounting that fan in front of the motherboard but the gpu bracket gets in the way. I am planning on ordering one of those super low profile fans to see if that will fit.
  5. SpookyCitrus, The rad is probably okay where it is, there are only two spots for case fans. One at the bottom and one near the motherboard tray. That is fairly obstructed by the graphics card though. It would be good to have more air running across the mother board. I will remount the aio for sure and see if that helps
  6. I'm planning on making a design on the front panel and that should also give it some more room to breath as well. I'll try some changing the thermal paste as well. I have a new tube on hand.
  7. That's a lot hotter than I'm used to, especially coming from intel. I mean, it's getting there though. I'd still be happier around 35C
  8. Hello all, I just put together my new system. I have a 3800X, 16gig kit of 3200MHz Corsair Vengeance Pro, an Asus Strix x570-i, with an NZXT Kraken M22, all in a Phanteks Evolv Shift. Before I begin, I know, the shift has awful airflow. I noticed there was an issue even without the side panels. In the bios, I noticed that the cpu was idling around 35 C and the package was around 40 C. After allowing it to sit for a while, not side panels on, it got up to 45C. After installing windows and all side panels, while completing tasks like checking email, with some downloads in the b
  9. Thanks @KWelz, so mount the radiator on the front wall of the case, not on the floor. Is it possible to mount next to the motherboard or is it too close to the board? Would you also be able to send a pic of your system?
  10. Hello, I'm thinking about getting an evolv shift x and was wondering if anyone has used it. I'd like to use one of the NZXT kraken AIOs but I'm not sure what will fit with one 3.5inch hdd installed. The manual says you can fit two drives without any radiators mounted. Has anyone fit a radiator in this case as well as at least one 3.5 inch drive, also what size did you use? Thanks
  11. The second processor works, but not in that socket. is it a setting I could be missing?
  12. Hello, I have two X5660s and a Tyan s7012. I had some issues getting it to post but was able to get it to post with a single X5660 installed. When I install the second, the system fails to post. I have updated the bios to the most recent revision. A green light blinks near the second cpu. I've tried multiple ram configurations
  13. update: I removed one cpu and am now able to enter the bios. The bios version is from 5/11/2011
  14. Before I do that, is there any chance that it is a dead board?
