    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.

    Have you tried moving fan #3 downwards or moving both front fans downwards to see if you get any lower GPU temperatures?

    You need some wood grain vinyl adhesive trims on the white area to give it a retro look. I'm not too sure where you can put since the area around the wood should be raised up so you don't see the edge of the vinyl.

    I am already using Fan Control, but really want to avoid using it because it doesn't seem to work for my motherboard alone without having the Commander Pro installed. It seems Fan Control doesn't know how to read motherboard info with iCUE initializing something. I haven't checked if it still needs iCUE since December 2020.

    Steam is likely created from the condensation from cooling. It's really not a good idea to cool a oven, but looks more like some one is trolling

    I prefer the first diagram and not really sure if you actually need top fans both running in 2 directions. Having a top fan as intake and exhaust seems more like it just sucks the exhausted air back inside. Maybe it makes more of a difference if you were running the fans at at higher RPM to cool it without being concerned about the noise. I would just use 1 top fan near the back as exhaust and have it at a lower RPM than the rear exhaust. Or even no top fan if you were trying to keep it quieter.  Every one has their own preference when prioritizing quieter or strong performing computer while keeping the temperatures within acceptable range.

    I've been following this to see if it resembles anything to the Magnavox Odyssey version 1 or 2. My childhood game console was the Mattel Intellivision so I wanted to see how this turns out.

    Your motherboard does have the 12V RGB and it looks like the fan pack does include a RGB cable to connect to the motherboard. One of the fan's RGB cable is connected to the motherboard RGB cable and the other fans RGB cable is daisy chained to the another fan. You use Gigabyte RGB Fusion software to adjust the colors. That is how I'm interpreting it from reading the Amazon description and Gigabyte website. The motherboard can probably handle all 5 RGB fans on one RGB header, but you should still check your manuals specifications.

    Hello guys,
     
    this is not a classic case-mode, I will make changes to one of my favorite projects "ZOROG" which will still find a place on my desk in the form of a computer for entertainment.
     

     
    I will totally change the inside and outside of the case, using the same hardware with some minor updates. And this time I thank all the companies that supported my work!
     
    On the 3D renders below you can see an idea of what it will look like:
     



     
    Thank you for watching!

    alyen got a reaction from G9XFTW in What were the reasons behind removing side panel case fans ?   
    I actually think the side panel fans has always been a excellent idea, but never been done in a good way.  So what if part of the side panel had a mesh? Some people would rather not even have a window at all. Upper half of the side panel being a window really isn't too bad. There isn't much to look at many case with long shroud covering the power supply to the front of the case down below anyways.
     
    This is how I think it can be done with:
    Make the case wide enough too accommodate the typical graphics card so it can be mounted normally in the PCI slot. The case should also be wide enough so fans can be mounted on the side with a removable bracket so the fans are not actually attached to the side panel. This would also allow the option to mount a slim radiator with fans.
    Another way is to mount the fans onto the side panel. Fan cables are plugged into hub on the side panel. When the side panel is fitted on properly to the case a circuit if formed that connects the fan to a cable plugged into the motherboard.
     
    It would be kind of nice to have some options like this being to make things have more optional functions.

    I just use HWInfo. It doesn't do overlays on top of other apps, but you can have items displayed in the Windows task bar or move the window to another monitor. It's kind of disappointing ICUE doesn't have something more practical considering all of the products they sell.

    alyen got a reaction from EnzoMP in Artic Liquid Freezer II 280 + Noctis 450. Will it fit on top?   
    I do not own the case, but you should check height clearance of the top panel above the main part of the case. Arctic 140mm fans are 27mm thick. Steve from the Gamers Nexus video said the height was 25mm or 26mm if you were to mount fans on the top.
    Even if there is enough clearance to mount the radiator you have to check if it fits with the heatsink and I/O shroud for that motherboard. And there is also memory clearance if you pass I/O and heatsinks. It's a really tough call from looking at pictures.

    alyen got a reaction from TVwazhere in [Canada] [Newegg] Rosewill cases - Prism M & Spectrs D100 @ $70 CAD   
    That Spectra D100 is a nice deal. RGB fans are only 3 pin, but I like dual ring RGB.
    Max CPU cooler height of 170mm maybe enough to fit a something like Noctua  NH-D15 with low profile RAM. 
    2 vertical PCI-E slots and can fit a 120/140mm fan at the rear.
    We don't seem to get all of these features in lower budget cases anymore.

    alyen got a reaction from LIGISTX in Hyper 212 Evo 140mm Fan Bracket   
    I thought about doing something like to direct the air so it doesn't escape from the front, upper and lower part, but I wasn't quite sure how far down I could mount the fan. The 2 fans are also at slightly different height as well. After going through so many printing attempt to get things to fit exactly I decide to use some that was good enough. When it comes time to replacing the fan I might try to improve the design.

    alyen got a reaction from Aereldor in Hyper 212 Evo 140mm Fan Bracket   
    After several years from using the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo on a FX-8320e I decided to make a 140mm bracket. This design still allows the fan to slide downwards to the motherboard or upwards. It's only compatible if you are not using the memory slot closest to the CPU. Unfortunately the fans I'm using are 27mm thick so I wasn't able to put enough static pressure onto the VRM heat sink as I had hoped to, but still allows more air to pass through underneath lower part beneath the aluminum fins. I never bother to get any temperature readings with the 120mm fan nor was I able to even measure the temperatures for VRM. I was able to push my stable over clock to 4.3 GHz from 4.2.
     
    I uploaded the .stl file to MakerBot Thingiverse.

    Does it hit 88 degrees with the case open or closed? Does the side panel have some vents next to the fain area for the graphics card. The air flow looks really bad in the cramped case and the front intake holes are so small that the Kryonaut may not do much.

    I have a Cooler Master CM690 case with a spot for a slim fan, on other side of case where the CPUI would be but I never bothered to put one on there. If I did I would probably make it exhaust, but I really don't think it would do much. It think it was too much trouble to look for a 80mm slim fan back then.

    alyen got a reaction from bluehillday in are the arctic p12's silent fans?   
    The P12 PST for my setup seem fairly quiet. I don't really hear anything until my ears are 2 feet away from the case while under light CPU loads. I usually keep my fan RMP from 500-900 and up to 1300 RPM on stressful loads. I do hear some kind of sound somewhere above 1200 RPM at times when the fan revs up and down when the CPU gets really hot. I corrected things by adjusting the higher temperature range and RPM from bios. I don't see it as a flaw in the design.

    You would need to list the components you intend to use. Full size towers seem to going extinct with drives being smaller these days and not much demand for 5.25 bays for most people. I only use SSD and M.2 drives now.
