  1. Maybe I'll consider a different case then. That's impressive, I can't believe the guy was getting 68C. The Enthoo ITX suffers from mediocre thermals.
  2. Thanks for the feedback guys. I think I may just consider a 3080 if the temps are manageable and rebuild next gen in a larger form factor, although the mini itx has been a lot of fun.
  3. Anything and everything, it's not that I really need a 3090, just like a 70 year old man doesn't need a Ferrari, but it's just wanting to have it. I wasn't able to have these things in my early 20s, so now that I can afford them it's nice to splurge haha. Edit: I don't know that a Hybrid card would fit due to the 240mm AIO only being able to fit on the top of my case. It would block the the radiator of the hyrbid card on the front or back.
  4. You don't think a FE 3080 would be okay? It's a dual slot 3080 that should fit, but I wouldn't really feel comfortable putting something in my case that would reach temps higher than 85C.
  5. That was my concern, I thought it would be a neat thing to do, but it just might not be practical.
  6. I haven't been able to find a lot of information about 3090 temperatures in mini itx cases. Even if temps are stable in larger cases, it doesn't necessarily apply to mine. What kind of temperatures do you think I'd expect to see? 90c? Higher than that?
  7. Budget (including currency): N/A Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Any Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I currently have a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv TG Mini ITX case. It's a dual slot case and I currently have a 2080 ti evga black GPU. The length is fine, but the height of the card is what is a tight squeeze. (See pictures below). I was wondering if anyone knew what my options will be
  8. SOLVED For those of you who happen to come across this problem yourself, this is how I fixed it. I downloaded a program called MiniTool Partition Wizard. I deleted the recovery partition that separated the 2 portions of the drive. I then right clicked the (C:) drive and pressed extend and extended the unallocated drive to become a part of the (C:) drive.
  9. I was able to delete the recovery partition and I turned the unallocated portion of the drive into a new volume (F:). How do I merge the (F:) and (C:) drives now? There is nothing on the (F:) partition.
  10. I suppose the issue was trying to clone a smaller drive to a larger drive. I really wanted to avoid having to re-download Windows and all of my software etc. It's not a big deal and I don't mind having to do it, but I'm at my download limit with Xfinity and didn't want to have to wait until the 1st. The 516MB partition is a recovery partition, so if I delete that partition do you think I'd somehow be able to allocate the unallocated 976GB to my (C:) drive? How would I be able to do that without having to create a new volume?
  11. Hello, I've never made a clone of a drive before and I'm a bit confused. I'm sure the answer is simple, but I'm not sure what to do. I have two m.2 drives, one is a 970 Evo Plus (1TB) and the other is a Sabrent Rocket (2TB). Long story short, my 970 Evo sits right above my GPU and gets too hot in my mini ITX build (constant 70-75c while gaming). I want to use my Sabrent that is mounted on the back of my motherboard instead because thermals are much better. This is my reason for wanting to clone my 970 Evo. I downloaded software called Macrium Reflect and it seems to have made a clo
  12. Thanks for your response! I was just concerned as Samsung stated that the 970 was rated up to 70c. I wasn't sure if that meant that it was potentially hazardous to expose it to temperatures above that. I've never had an SSD just stew at temps like this. I might just end up removing it all together and using the Sabrent as my only drive. What do you think about my fan placement as described above? Do you think changing fans 3/4 to intake rather than exhaust would make a meaningful difference?
  13. For example, these are my idle temps. The 970 always sits at a good 20c higher than the sabrent (which is on the back of the motherboard away from the gpu) and the 970 always has similar temps to whatever my gpu is.
  14. After about an hour of gaming, it just sits at 70c+ for as long as I continue to game. It seems to sit slightly lower than whatever temp my GPU is at. I have everything installed on my 970 evo, os and all, but I might try installing a game on the sabrent to see what happens. I suspect the issue is with its placement right above the gpu though. I guess my main concern is whether or not anyone thinks this is a potential fire hazard or what the possible outcome of having an m.2 sit at a constant 75c for hours is.
  15. I just completed my first mini ITX build. I used the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX case. Here are the specs below: Windows 10 Home i9 9900KF z390 I Aorus Pro WiFi 32gb Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 3200mhz EVGA 2080ti Black 1TB 970 Evo Plus m.2 2TB Sabrent Rocket m.2 Corsair Rm 850x PSU Corsair 240mm h100i RGB platinum AIO 5 120LL fans Temps are toasty in general since it's a small case, but none are really of any great concern except for my 970 evo plus. This is my primary drive that I have everything installed on, OS and all. After
