Mini-box M350. It's currently in pieces, so have a stock photo:

Also I don't even have a tracking number yet (thanks Newegg!). With some mods, I think it's possible to have thin mITX plus a GPU in there, but for the time being I'm not going to experiment. "Keep it simple, stupid" is advice I should follow more often lol.

I can really recommend the NH-L9i for lower wattage CPUs of 45W or even lower, maybe it would work for 65W and higher as well, but running Prime95 on that will certainly make it spin up.

this ziggy is amazing and cheap too when i got it. it tames my 100w 7850k and 5800k AMD where most other solutions fail and you can mount a regular thick 92mm fan if you dont prefer a slim fan
I have the newer LD963 with 3 heatpipes which supposedly handles 115W, but I found that small heatsinks can't handle full loads running 24/7.
Usually very low profile heatsinks are used in very small cases without direct access to fresh air and ends up reusing the hot air.

Is that a new scratch made case? Got any more pics? its just a square panel tongue.gif

Is the C7 really that good? The price is hard to justify thou, for a little bit more you can get a huge dual tower which has alot more materials and 2 fans.

the LD963 is actually older, the 964 is the newer one with 4 heat pipes. still my 3 heatpipe ones tamed my 7850k rather well and thats full loads 24/7

i have it in my ISK110 and an SG05

I thought so too, until I read this on the LD963 page

The Xigmatek PRAETON LD963 is an intelligent evolution of the original LD964 design.

I had a 963 in a jonsbo C2 cooling a 95w cpu and it caused everything else to heat up including the psu connectors
Given identical specs, I would think cpu temps would be better in the isk100 than in the sg05 since it draws air directly from the outside.

Given identical specs, I would think cpu temps would be better in the isk100 than in the sg05 since it draws air directly from the outside.

i think the fan, the rpm used and the case ventilation plays a part.

initially had had some problems with my 5800k in an ISK100 using a 120mm slim scythe but thats because i wasnt able to expel the heat out of the case with that sort of static pressure. so i had to be abit creative in shoving some 40mm fans in the case.

stock fan and a 92mm slim noctua does pretty well on my 7850k in an ISK110. stock fan cooled slightly better but noctua was far quieter. temps was reasonable and certainly better then the noctua L9 that others have attempted with.

in my SG05 since i have another one left over as spare, it never got beyond 70c with a i5 3450 that has been +4bin overclocked. fan was inverted to blow into the PSU though and im using a full ATX PSU.

i think the SG05 cooled far better then the ISK because the heatsink gets plenty of air from the from 120mm intake and it doesnt have to work extra hard to force ventilate the hot air because the PSU fan takes care of it.

btw what CPU were you trying to cool in your jonsbo? i think the issue with the jonsbo is that it doesnt have/ poorly located an intake fan that the heatsink starves for air given the case volume. simply not enough air moving around so heat gets trapped and depending if you have the PSU facing inside or outside it probably couldnt ventilate the heat properly due to the lack of top vents (if relying on convection)


oh to add on to your list of coolers i can recommend the scythe samurai zz if you dont mine something slightly taller then the rest but like the xigmatek preaton will have no compatibility issues regardless of CPU socket placement(even if its smacked right next to the PCIe slot) or ram height.

the deepcool gabriel is also a rather decent cooler for its price considering i have one cooling an AMD FX 8 core

This. It's still probably about the same cooling capacity of a hyper 212 but takes up so little room so great for itx cases.

Teaser for now. I have to edit out some serial numbers. rolleyes.gif But to get a sense of scale, here's the case and the box the motherboard came in:




It's a bit on the small side.
