  1. And to add to this. Make sure you measure yourself to ensure that the chair will fit you. All those dimensions will help making your decision.
  2. Just make sure you get a paint that will help with heat transfer (i.e. engine paint). Other paints would just insulate the metal which is not what you want to do. And for $10, yeah I would go that route. Stop by the auto parts store near you, and find a color or black that you like. And just to 2 light coats, that should be enough.
  3. That and if it is possible, did you check the level of fluid inside your AIO? If you have been running it for awhile, which it sounds like you have been. Then maybe you are a bit low on your coolant.
  4. If you are able to, I personally would run it both ways. Set up one way, take your data, then set it up the other way and take data. Then you would know for sure which way is best for you setup. Yeah it feels like you would be wasting time, but the investment in your time would yield you the best results. Then you could share what you came up with.
  5. Maybe it would be oxidation? Kind of like the Statue of Liberty. If your temps on the 2600X were good, just roll with it. Clearly it didn't hurt your cooling performance, so don't screw with it.
  6. Sometimes I just don't understand why people do a push/pull configuration on a radiator. Sometimes the pull fans would just wear the push fans down faster. It isn't like you are going to change the speed of the air going through the radiator. Just look up a heat transfer equation in Google. If you want better heat transfer, spend money on a radiator with more surface area. That will get your temperatures to drop further. Then you would need new fans to move the air with either more speed or greater pressure to overcome the larger surface area. etc, etc. Wikipedia defin
  7. I am partial to the Lian Li Lancool II Mesh. (I have the performance model) Routing cables in it actually wasn't bad. The cable way covers on the back side make it easy to hide if you don't do a really great job. Just remember that if your cables bulge out too far, then even with the cover on, the backside tempered glass won't stay closed! One of the joys of having a magnetic closure on your side panels. But seriously, for all that gear you are putting in, I would add a couple more case fans (at least an exhaust one on the rear) to get some good flow. Good lu
  8. Here is the fan header for the performance. Sadly I can't look at Lian Li's website from my work. I know it shows the layout of the Fan hub for both.
  9. I know it seems odd, but that is why that side of the bottom panels is mesh and not solid. The Lancool II had a slit for air. But when Lian Li did the Mesh model, they added that to give you an option for bringing in air from that side panel to push it upwards. Personally I haven't done it yet, but I only have a GTX 1070 that isn't overclocked. So I run about 70C under full gaming load.
  10. I was curious what country you lived in because of the price hike. If you are going to leave the GPU inserted in the motherboard, then I would recommend the Lancool II Mesh. Sorry that they don't have the Performance one for you. To better get cooling on your GPU, pick up a 3x120MM fans and one 140MM fan. Mount 2 of them on top of the PSU shroud. There is opening for them, they get their air from the side bottom cover. And install one on the rear exhaust and for air balance install another exhaust on the top rear location (140MM). The RGB model has 3X 120MM RGB f
  11. There is also the Lancool 215 if you want a cheaper version of the Lancool 2 Mesh. I just swapped my son's PC into the Lancool 215 for Christmas. He has a Ryzen 5 2600X and a RX 5700XT. I don't have thermal numbers though sorry.
  12. It really comes down to personal preference. As long as the chair fits to your body, then get what options you would like. As for the GN video, I have the Ergo Chair 2, that I purchased for my wife. Technically I can use it, I am just under the weight limit, and my thighs touch the arm posts a little. but it has some great lumbar adjustments to help get that posture you want/need. I use a AK Racing MAX chair currently. It had the dimensions that would fit me and it has a weight limit of 400lbs. My only complaint is the stupid 4-D arm rests. I wish they would jus
  13. How much room is there between the wall on the desk/table top? I agree with both ideas given above. I am still trying to cable manage my setup.
  14. I agree with the paint over and then stencil what you want it to say. Or say nothing at all. UMMM maybe a dumb question, what does the "LANE" mean? Personally, I would just primer and paint the case a different color if you want it to look different.
