I actually really really like these DIMMs with no heatsink... I'm not wild about the dragon though, perhaps snow camo instead.
I would buy the heck out of a snow camo set of these if I had a white build.

So ... any ETA on those next generation 120/140mm Noctua fans? (I gave up on the 200mm fan and the noise cancelling project thingy. Their R&D department sure is taking their time, don't they).

Also, any one here knows of an alternative to the NZXT's GRID+ V2 that actually works with Noctua's PWM fans. I don't think NZXT had any news on a GRID+ V3 or something like that in their booth

I would not expect something from Noctua until the end of the year.

The biggest complaints I see about the case in regards to airflow are those that keep the stock 200mm fan. It's kinda sad to think of getting rid of it, but I definitely see it's limitations in a setup that needs a crazy amount of flow. Once I get Windows installed on that build, I'll have to do some testing for myself to see how everything goes. The last plans I have for it are to upgrade to 2x140mm in the front and go with a 'sensible' GPU like the RX 480, should it pan out to be everything AMD says it will be.

The 200mm fan is pretty worthless indeed, but its not the cause of the terrible GPU temps, its most definitely the shroud. I would't be surprised if the temps dropped 5°C or more just by removing the shroud and all the metal obstructions attached to it, even with the 200mm fan.

That's why the Define S Nano is a much better design, it has a clean airflow path to bot the GPU and CPU.

Here's an example my statement:



I think this speaks for itself. rolleyes.gif

Does it? Because you didn't include a graph that shows the most popular PSU shroud cases?...

No but it does show the case we were talking about, the Evolv ITX, and how its significantly worse than any other case on the graph. If you want to compile your own graph with cases with gpu shrouds tested with the GPU in close proximity to them, go have a ball. But its not worth my time to disprove your nonsense.

If you want to believe in your own little fantasy that PSU shrouds are not obstructions and improve airflow, that's fine. But don't go soiling this forum with misinformation.
