Re: Akasa Euler Fanless case

For i3-3220T - 59*C (ambient 23*C-24*C)- 100% cpu - that's LinX at standard settings,we got similar temps when we put celeron g1610. Idle drops to about 39-40*C. Having 50 is not bad(assuming it is during heavy use). We also compared akasa's thermal compound given with the case and it was surprising...

Re: Akasa Euler Fanless case

Just wanted to let You know, I recently build over 50 systems using Akasa Euler. None of the problems reported in this thread appeared. No problems with alignment whatsoever.

Re: Akasa Euler Fanless case

Case itself also has two holes on each side of the case (can not be seen on the akasa's photos), that is probably for chipset cooling. Anyway, it is nice fanless case. Tested it with celeron g530 (65W) and it was not that hot.

Re: Any Intel 7-series mITX boards w/DC in?

The board You looking for is a DQ77KB. Layout is identical as DH61AG. DH61AG will get bios upgrade to support ivy bridge cpu's . H61 chipset will remain as a low budget option through 2012 so bios update is almost 100% certain.
