    Mini ITX case selection, please help!

    Both the Silverstone SG13 and the ncase M1 won't fit the CPU and GPU 120mm radiators with push/pull fans (overall thickness 100mm) on both. To be clear; I'd like to have the smallest and lightest possible case that would fit these components. It must certainly be smaller than the Fractal...

    Mini ITX case selection, please help!

    Hi guys, it's been a long time. I'm going to build a powerful Mini-ITX PC for gaming mainly on my 34" LG monitor (1440x3440) in my room and occasionally carry it to the living room to play on the 65" 4k TV, and I need your expert advice to select the best case for this computer as I have some...

    EK Releases Monoblock for ASUS MAXIMUS VIII Impact Motherboard

    As you can see here : and here : They have managed to do so, under the sound card in the past, but now it seems that they don't feel that there is a need to cool the chipset.

    EK Releases Monoblock for ASUS MAXIMUS VIII Impact Motherboard

    Why don't they cool the chipset anymore? Doesn't the Z170 need any cooling? EK used to cool the Z97 chipset in the previous iteration of this water block intended for the Asus MAXIMUS VII Impact.

    In Amsterdam : Where to buy computer components?

    Yes, but I'm only staying there for a three days, and I'm not sure that they'll be able to deliver the items in time. Also, occasionally some sites reject my credit card since they insist to have the card issued in the same country where the item is to be delivered, newegg for example.

    In Amsterdam : Where to buy computer components?

    I was trying to avoid it but it seems a must; I will have to drive for an hour to Alternate.nl in Ridderkerk to get all these parts, since they have them in stock. Thanks a lot for your help!

    In Amsterdam : Where to buy computer components?

    Hi All, I've a business trip to The Netherlands soon and I would definitely like to buy some computer components while there, since these are hard to come by in Saudi Arabia. Does anyone know of a good computer store in or near by Amsterdam? Please note that I can't buy online.

    Remote ‘Kill Switch’ Added to Intel’s Newest Processor.

    Sorry, I thought that you were replying to me since it was sent directly after my post, my mistake. The big grin should have given me away there! Not all Jews are Zionists, in fact only a few are, and there are some non-Jew Zionists as well. Zionism has nothing to do with religion, it's...

    Remote ‘Kill Switch’ Added to Intel’s Newest Processor.

    ... I was clearly joking, and I'm surprised that you didn't get it, was it so hard to understand? :wtf: Anyway; for the second part; the Zionists control over world media is a fact and not fiction, and definitely not a part of any conspiracy theory. If you are interested I can refer you to some...

    GTX 580 - should I?

    That's a nice looking block, and at an excellent price, does it perform as good as it looks? I am considering to water cool my GTX580, and was thinking to go with Danger Den's block, but it's $159, is it better performance-wise than the EK block? I intend to build a custom loop to cool an i7-950...

    ... Sandy Bridge CPUs are made in occupied Palestine (aka Israel), right? Could the Zionists have something to do with it? :D ... it seems like one of their ideas in their continuous efforts to control the world ... they already control most of the world's media, so why stop there? ;) ...

    Official AMD Radeon 6000 Series Discussion Thread

    ASUS GeForce GTX 570

    I completely disagree; for this performance and at this price ($350) it is a very good deal, but I'll wait for one more week and see what Mr. Cayman has to say before I make up my mind ;) I am sooooooooooooo glad now that I didn't get the 5870 nor the GTX 480 and decided to wait till end of the...

    Thermaltake Introduces Armor A30 Compact Gaming Chassis

    ... just exactly how is the top fan supposed to properly exhaust air if the power supply (which is installed immediately beneath it) is blocking 60-70% of its intake ... furthermore; the case's active air intake is achieved by only one 90mm fan (front) :wtf: while air exhaust is by two 60mm fans...
