the big upside of the IS-60 is that it will fit node202 with a 20mm fan on the top - mine arrived yestarday (after 6 months with one unsuccessful delivery attempt) so I will do some testing soon

6 months?! I assume you're not in the US?

Anyone using a Thermalright AXP-100 in this case? I got a full copper version and the temps are idling on the high side and the fan gets loud every 5 secs which doesn't make any sense this is supposed to be the best low-profile cooler out there (and I really had a hard time in acquiring it and paid $200 including shipping). xD

It performs really well outside the case so I guess it's probably because it's already stretching the height limit since the cooler is 58mm, which is 2mm taller. I've seen some forums where they said they modded the cooler to fit or some had changed the to a shorter one. So I bought an IDC IS-30 and swap the fans. That way it would be 56mm and hopefully solves the problem.

Anyone that had gone through this? Would like your thoughts on this. Thanks

Speedholes(tm)

Hello Beautiful People,

This thread is great. I would like to add something. c:

The 5700 XT Red Dragon was overheating out of the box. I added two Arctic P12 and changed to [email protected] / [email protected] The vertical stand was ditched for some 3D-printed stands that add plenty of room under the case. This was not enough. I cut some speedholes in the GPU chamber.

https://ibb.co/NVmbKxq
https://ibb.co/vvnyJcD
https://ibb.co/s9YxkNb
https://ibb.co/h9s4jw9

I cleaned the edges and think about adding a nice bevel. Yet, no one is ever going to see those holes. The Node 202 is needy. If want to see the other ghetto mods I posted on Reddit a while ago. Who needs screws to mount a fan to CPU sink anyway? https://www.reddit.com/r/sffpc/comme...t_in_node_202/

So I got the IDC IS-30 and got to test around with this case. Using ThermalGrizzly Kryonaut and stock fan curves with the Gigabyte X570 I Aorus Pro WiFi/

Here are the results with my R5 3600:

AXP-100 Full Copper (Stock fan)
Idle: 44c, 39dB
Load: 73c, 45dB

AXP-100 Full Copper (IS-30 fan)
Idle: 44c, 31dB
Load: 75c, 46dB

IS-30 (Stock fan)
Idle: 46c, 35dB
Load: 80c, 47dB

IS-30 (AXP-100 fan)
Idle: 46c, 35dB
Load: 79c, 47dB

Ryzen Stealth
Idle: 55c, 26dB
Load: 83c, 36dB

I'm keeping the stealth since the other two are just way too noisy even on idle. But what I've noticed is that this case loves thick high SP fans, otherwise the slim fans will just be way too loud.

But maybe I'll toy around with the fan curves and if it's still too loud, I'll just buy the Noctua. xD
