Re: Quiet Mini-ITX Gaming Build Guide #2: NCASE M1 Edition

I finished the exact same build (except a bigger SSD and more Ram) than the poster, and it's really a nice set up. Very Very silent, the only thing I can hear is the sound of the water just after its start, other than that it's impressive to see such a powerful rig doing so few noise ! Thanks a lot ...

Thanks Mike, will use your link.

So the choice is either the original Zotac featured in your build with its liquid cooling or the new one (with or without LC ?). My understanding is that the results are pretty much the same in term of noise.

So I'll go with the old one ;D

Re: Quiet Mini-ITX Gaming Build Guide #2: NCASE M1 Edition

We worked with the new Zotac 970... found a min 60% fan speed limit seemingly hardcoded into the firmware. Min noise is 17~18 dBA, pretty good, but certainly not as low as 0 as in the Asus or MSI top models whose fans stop at low load. The new single fan models probably aren't going to be that quie...

Re: Quiet Mini-ITX Gaming Build Guide #2: NCASE M1 Edition

Well i guess I just have to return the GC then ;D

Would appreciate if you have a definitive answer on the GC choice. My understanding was that the original card was too large as well. Hope the new one you received will make it.

Re: Quiet Mini-ITX Gaming Build Guide #2: NCASE M1 Edition

I'm planning to do exactly this build, with only the graphic card replaced by the Asus Strix GTX970 listed as an alternative. The only issue is that I'm not an expert and certainly never have built such a small PC. I will try to use the current article to make sure I'm not breaking everything, but w...
