i'll be happy to get anything below 75c on full load with fans on 1k rpm given the case that i am using. might reverse the front fan as exhaust as i went with all intake on the rads(top and rear)

I have a Fractal Nano S and the GPU slot in the case isn't lining up with the PCIE slot on the mobo - it appears the mobo is mounted about 5mm too high. Asus Strix Z270i mITX mobo, there are only 4 mounting holes in the mobo. When I install the GPU into the PCIE slot, the thumb screw holes are nowhere close to lining up. And it might be the mobo, it seems like the GPU is really tight against the shield around the audio connectors.

Yeah, I just discovered the issue at lunch and am back at work now. And to add that the I/O shield lines up perfectly, no issue there, so the I/O shield and the mounting holes in the mobo/case seem to line up fine. Either the PCIE slot on the mobo is too high (I see these mobos mounted in cases), the hole in the case is off (I see others using this case) or maybe the mounting bracket on the card is off (I see others using this card). But for an idea, picture the row of HDMI/DP ports about halfway covered by the top of the GPU slot in the case:



EDIT: I got in in there, just loosened everything up and re-aligned. It's still an awfully tight fit, but it's operational!

I went with a Corsair SF600 power supply to allow better airflow for the GPU. My entire system can't even push it to 50% load so it is still silent. The only downfall was the stock cables. They were way too short. So I ended up just picking up a set of CableMod cables for it. I also swapped out the stock fans for some Fractal Venturis. This thing is damn near silent.

Overall I really like this case. I went with the non-windowed version for better noise isolation and because I planned to put it in my desks cubby. (The cubby has no door or rear paneling)


This is a post from quite a few pages back, but I am looking to run a similar setup in my next build with the Nano S and this SF600 PSU. Could you link the kit for the CableMod cables you ordered? I'd rather not buy more cables than what I need as they can get $$$$$.

Thanks

What you're looking for is the C-Series RMi / RMx of cables.

7700K delid done and cured, now this
17951983_10156258968685620_8710367983395994042_n.jpg?efg=eyJpIjoidCJ9&oh=6feb84ff4935402b5b42b26cf5e31b34&oe=594C94D1

Upon learning that I can also control the fan speed via the GPU temp, I am sold. This should tone down my GTs nicely.

Question though, I have a 4 Swiftech Helix here, are they any better than GTs? Too lazy to swap them out

grid+ v2 fits perfectly in front of my core 500. as expected the delid reduced my temps by around 20c, now to stress test before putting everything back together

You'll have better temps with the top and rear as exhaust, leaving the front, side and bottom as intake

As you have it the heat from the rads is all being blown back into the case

I might give that a try, the case itself is hot when I stressed both CPU and GPU at the same time.. 7700K hits max of 69c on stock settings, 75c when running 4.7ghz auto 1.260v and 980TI hits 70c on stock
