I think is not aluminum (at least not the plate), it seems to be niquel-plated cooper (to protect it from corrosion and give it better looking), so there isn't any problem using Liquid Ultra with it.


The Noctua NH-L9 seems to be a lot better than the Gelid Slim Silence.


But why you buy such small things (like the fann and the SSD), and then go for a quite big case? You can fit lots bigger (and quieter) CPU coolers and normal SSD and HDD there. And a SFX PSU is more than enough for that rig.

Because I have the Asus Strix 750 Ti in there too, and the footprint was smaller than my laptop, oh and it was $40 thumb.gif

Any recommendations on a SFF case that fits a standard ATX PSU?

Check the OP for some cases plus you need to include a few my requirements than that.

Yeah i took some pics of it today when I installed it, meets up with the top of the Corsair Vengeance LP and is a couple mm taller than the I/O parts (not higher than the I/O shield, though) seems to be relatively quiet, but the Noctua industrial 3krpm 140mm fan is LOUD sometimes, so I can't really tell.

hail sithis!

Pretty sure there's a Y at the end and it was a PR typo.

Nope, Galaxy and KFA2 have now combined their branding now and they are now GALAX.

Shame to see them discontinue KFA2 that was a dope brand. It's definitely still Galaxy lol.
