My former cooler was a TT Water 3.0 240.
Not only I had an episode of air getting trapped in the pump, I don't know if there was something wrong with the mounting mechanism on it or just by project the Asetek design (using the default AM4 motherboard brackets) didn't get enough pressure.
My temps are actually better now. And dead silent.

Given Ryzen 7000s thermal density a larger cooler likely wouldn't do a ton better regardless. Very nice looking cooler and the fans seem more than adequate quality wise. I still prefer AIO for my primary pc but do like the simplicity of an air cooler and the nearly 0 risk for failure. Temp readout seems very accurate which is also nice.

I made a little upgrade to the mini-itx pc in my dual system. I swapped out my RTX A2000 to a Gigabyte RTX 4060 low profile card. However do to the new card dumps the hot air in side the case and not out as the RTX A2000 blower cooler dit and with very limited direct airflow. That had a pretty negative impact on gpu and cpu temperature.

So what i dit was to borrow my friends 3D printer and this came out of it, together with a GPU undervolt from stock 1.050 MV and 2600 to 2775 MHz to 0.950 MV and 2750 Mhz locked. Significantly lowered temp on GPU from 80-81 C to 69-72 C and CPU temp from toasty 86 C down to 75-78 C at stock settings. Remember cpu cooler and GPU cooler in it self is all ready limiting by it self. So undervolt and some better airflow can really make a big change.

so this it how this frankenstein pc looks now.

Thanks....Why is it brave with going gigabyte?

It´s more a coincident with all are gigabyte. Well first of all, EVGA is out of the picture. I had a Asus RTX 4090 Tuf card before the gigabyte one. The asus card was better in all aspect hornestly, but had one major flaw. It coilwhined like a mad dog. So out it goes and at the time, gigabyte was the only card i could get (this was just after RTX 4090 was launched, so limited cards was aviable at the time). So i got the gigabyte card.

RTX 4060. Well there is only gigabyte low profile card, so i really dit not have any other choise. So far no other has made any hint of a new low profile card based om the RTX 4000 series card.

That is how I ended up with a Gigabyte 4090 the MSI suprim and Asus Tuf both had horrible coil whine vs my gaming OC having 0.

lol. Guess we are in the same boat then. But yeah, the asus card i had. I have never ever owned a card before with that much coil whine. It was really bad. The gigabyte does still coilwhine, but far less and with a undervolt to 0.900 mv and 2600 mhz locked. Coil whine is practically gone. How ever i mis the Asus card more silent fans.

Mines not bad becuase the pc sits like 15 feet away from me if I stick my ear right next to the card I can hear some really faint coilwhine but the glass has to be removed.

Also it never breaks 68-69c becuase I have a low ambient and 6 T30 dumping fresh air onto it.

Ah i see. My pc sit litterly next to me. So if there is coil whine. I will notice it. I have had my 4090 reach 79 C. That was at the worse condision possible. really warm summerday, max power target (600 watt) and comsume close to that and overclock on the card. Stock it´s pretty much the same as your card. With undervolt, it is significantly lower throw.

I actually run mine at 350W but it does not break 64C in that scenario. I was talking about stock.. .. When I did max out power limits it was up in the 75C range but the fans where very noticeable probably near 100% and my T30 where at 2000RPM when I did that.

Thanks to everyone who helped get it up and running.

I know it's been a major headach but at least that's one sexy AF SFF PC.

Using my 2nd PC for the weekend as I'll get a new CPU on my main rig on monday. Thought that it's wise to put this setup together already so I don't have to do 2 setups in one day later.

Brings back memories my last high end ish Amd gpu was a Asus DirectCU II I remember it running super warm 90c ish in quiet mode and 80 ish in performance.

My case sucked back then though 690 ii advanced

Gamed pretty nicely at 1920x1200.

IIRC Asus made a stupid mistake and used the same coolers with similar-performing AMD & Nvidia cards instead of optimizing an own cooler for different cards :shadedshu:

I'm more than surprised how well 290X still holds this day even though it's a 10yr old card. With the NimeZ drivers even newer games are supported

edit: Also made a mistake and forgot to plug in the case audio cable. I'll fix that later :laugh:

I made a little upgrade to the mini-itx pc in my dual system. I swapped out my RTX A2000 to a Gigabyte RTX 4060 low profile card. However do to the new card dumps the hot air in side the case and not out as the RTX A2000 blower cooler dit and with very limited direct airflow. That had a pretty negative impact on gpu and cpu temperature.

So what i dit was to borrow my friends 3D printer and this came out of it, together with a GPU undervolt from stock 1.050 MV and 2600 to 2775 MHz to 0.950 MV and 2750 Mhz locked. Significantly lowered temp on GPU from 80-81 C to 69-72 C and CPU temp from toasty 86 C down to 75-78 C at stock settings. Remember cpu cooler and GPU cooler in it self is all ready limiting by it self. So undervolt and some better airflow can really make a big change.

so this it how this frankenstein pc looks now.


I had to double take, damn that's the same case I am using. I dig the printed funnel.

IIRC Asus made a stupid mistake and used the same coolers with similar-performing AMD & Nvidia cards instead of optimizing an own cooler for different cards :shadedshu:

I'm more than surprised how well 290X still holds this day even though it's a 10yr old card. With the NimeZ drivers even newer games are supported

edit: Also made a mistake and forgot to plug in the case audio cable. I'll fix that later :laugh:

They where all kind of warm I had an MSI gaming first but it was even worse and I had a really had experience with sapphire the the previous generation. The card I liked was the lightning but it came out a bit later. the Reference was super trash.

The last MSI card I've had was a 780 Ti Gaming and at least it had a good cooler. Actually the card was a good card in overall, I was going to buy a 1060 3GB but back then Kepler's support was fine and I got it with a good price so I ended with it.

Ran practically everything fine maxed out at 1080p back in 2015 when I had it.

Finally have it more or less working properly after a week+ of struggling post upgrade.

Ryzen 7 5800X3D, iD Cooling DashFlow 240mm AIO, Gigabyte X570 I Aorus Pro WiFi, 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4-3600 CL16, 2x2TB NVME, Radeon RX 7900 XTX, Lian Li 850w SFX PSU, Lian Li x Dan A4-H20 case. It's our HTPC/"game console". Sitting in the middle of the living room cause we just moved.

Thanks to everyone who helped get it up and running.
nice, personally i prefer some mesh than TG

I made a little upgrade to the mini-itx pc in my dual system. I swapped out my RTX A2000 to a Gigabyte RTX 4060 low profile card. However do to the new card dumps the hot air in side the case and not out as the RTX A2000 blower cooler dit and with very limited direct airflow. That had a pretty negative impact on gpu and cpu temperature.

So what i dit was to borrow my friends 3D printer and this came out of it, together with a GPU undervolt from stock 1.050 MV and 2600 to 2775 MHz to 0.950 MV and 2750 Mhz locked. Significantly lowered temp on GPU from 80-81 C to 69-72 C and CPU temp from toasty 86 C down to 75-78 C at stock settings. Remember cpu cooler and GPU cooler in it self is all ready limiting by it self. So undervolt and some better airflow can really make a big change.

so this it how this frankenstein pc looks now.

You are using the 3D printed duct to funnel bottom airflow to the ATX system, bypassing the ITX system that needs less airflow?

@Tomgang if you are going to introduce airflow that way, may as well try running the L9x65 with fins in west-east orientation instead (rotate 90 degrees in either direction). It's already a very weak cooler and extremely dependent on airflow.

Maybe your room is just warm, or 1 ducted fan just isn't enough airflow but the L9x65 kept my 5700G at or under 80C usually. With 2 80mm fans. 5600X should run noticeably cooler under all circumstances.

No. I use the funnel to direct airflow to the mini itx system. It lacked airflow before and the cpu fan just sucked in the hot air from the gpu. Raised cpu temp higher that it should be.

Yes the cpu cooler is all ready limited as i stated before. No my room is not hot, its around 20 degrees Celsius. So normal temperatur.

It Simply lacked airflow. The cpu sucked in the hot air from the gpu. By directing more airflow to the cpu cooler that could remove the hot gpu air. lowering temp by 5 degrees Celsius alone under the same conditions compared to with out the funnel.

The side table TV stand is a (hopefully very) temporary solution, so I haven't spent any time on cable management yet... But it's still an improvement over "everything on the floor" from a couple days ago. We had a really nice built-in for the TV at our last place, and I'm missing it right now. Ah, the fun of a new apartment.

1000020365.jpg


Speakers are new-to-me, just picked them up today - Wharfedale Sapphire SP-88s. Not amazing, nothing compared to my old Martin Logan reQuests, but at $80 for the pair they're in deal of the century territory. In great shape, too - just a little corner of the veneer coming off the back of one, nothing glue won't fix. I've got the grills, but the first thing I did was take them off and hide them from my cat. ;-)

Amp is a completely refurbished (all new capacitors as of a couple years ago, everything tested and brought back to spec) SUMO Andromeda. 240wpc in to 8 ohms, 400wpc in to 4 ohms. Given the speakers are rated for 150 watts at 8 ohms, we're in an apartment, and I don't want our neighbors to hate us, it's plenty.

I need to re-run DIRAC Live and update the room correction - the DAC / preamp is a MiniDSP DDRC24 - but it doesn't sound bad as is. Certainly an improvement over the JBL 305P MK2 powered monitors they replaced. Those will go live on my desk in the office now.

And now I got my main PC back together. Also the Crosshair seems to work fine with a Zen3 CPU, I had problems with this before with a Zen2 CPU.





Also, the hoses aren't so dim as they look in pictures :laugh:

Did a rearrange on the fans. Put the 3 noctua fans off the side rad on the front, and split the 4x lian li linked into 3 and 1 and put the 3 where the side rad was and one on the back. Btw it does not look no where near as bright as it does in the pics.
