  1. Best bang for your buck is going to vary where you are buying from and/or what currency. Cougar MMX330 is really one the cheapest ones I ever seen. Seems quite rare to see $40 CAD or less for something that has good airflow. https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/mx330-x-pc-gaming-case/6000198493631?cmpid=sem_google_en_pla_none_869128514_77863726265_None&gclsrc=aw.ds&&gclid=CjwKCAiA1eKBBhBZEiwAX3gql_zyBpIovHh56vvoLU3MxucDf1Mqim61saU-cjIkrr0ai6tSprBiGxoCxQAQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
  2. I think negative pressure would work best for the setup. Front and bottom both as intake. Rear fan as exhaust. Radiator would be on the front, because it's best to avoid having the pump at the highest point since that will be where air will likely to accumulate over time which will eventually lead to pump failure. Are there any fan slots at the top of the case?
  3. It should fit if you have slots to mount 2 fans, but may need to check clearance at the top to make sure it fits.
  4. You can still use case fans if they fit on the radiator and if you find the temperature ranges for your use suitable. They may not perform as well, but may still be enough if not overclocking.
  5. I was looking at Mike's Computer clicking on Zotac RTX 3060 and noticed they had stocked. Before I could complete my purchase I had to update my current delivery address. By then it was already too late. =(
  6. If you use something like that Deepcool you still need to watch how many amps your are going to put into that fan header on the mother board. Its usually 1amp max. Aliexpress has a different type that provides a power source. Look around to see if you can find a better price. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001928908216.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4d0qUoj8 If you have the same type of fans they will go at the rate of the fan that is connected to the red header. Sometimes there is a long delivery time time, but it took 3 weeks for my delivery to arrive. I always k
  7. It appears to be like many other AIOs out there that are compatible with AM4 and TR4 which have a smaller contact surface than chip. If you wanted more surface area over the chip you really need to get something more specific for the Threadripper.
  8. Do you not like the look of the current cooler or upgrading thinking you will have better performance?
  9. Have you tried moving fan #3 downwards or moving both front fans downwards to see if you get any lower GPU temperatures?
  10. Did you try adjusting the fan RPM to ranges to see if you avoid getting the coil whine and maybe not have the fan spin up so high so you won't need to buy a new fan. I've had some fans that have some annoying motor noise so I reduced the RPM even if it mean +3 degrees higher temperatures on loads.
  11. if it's a pump or fan you can determine it from adjusting the rpm or dropping it to zero. I know my GPU can have some coil whine once a game is running, but not always.
  12. Both cases would work well with your components. It's probably going to come down which look do you prefer. Do you have any plans for future upgrades to add? I like how small the Meshify C is, but it could be challenging to work with if you do water cooling custom loop with RGB in the future which I found out from my experience. Meshify C: bottom of the a has a option to place a fan at the bottom if you remove the hard drive cage. bottom fan filter is better than the Corsair. has bigger opening at the front of the shroud (after unscrewing a cover) if you plan to
  13. Please list your components you are going to be using. It can help people decide what you plan to fit in the case.
  14. Have you tried checking Craigslist in your area. I check for the computer parts daily in my area incase I see something I like or that I can use or keep as a spare backup. Sometimes I make an offer for something incase they don't find a buyer. There are a lot of things listed over priced so you have to do some research into it if you are not sure what a fair price is.
  15. Do you have any components in the 5.25" bays that gets hot? You may not need any top exhaust fans if those bays are not in use. My typical setup is 1 top fan at minimum at the furthest back as the case will allow and have it set with a much lower RPM than rear case exhaust fan the CPU cooler. Having too many top fans can exhaust cool air before it reaches the CPU cooler. I usually cover up the fan slots on the top that are not used. 2 front intake fans look good and may need some adjustments up/down depending on your components.
