Re: Akasa Euler Fanless case

When i moved the sata plug from the inner blue socket to the outer blue socket the board no longer sloped as the inner one is on top of the HDD power and sata lead and lifts the edge of the board up with the lack of room from the sata lead bent back on itself.

Well to answer my own question i've not noticed any real difference in load and idle temps between Arctic Silver 5 and the White stuff that comes with the Euler.

Maybe it's because i've only used 35w CPUs and would need more heat to notice?

Re: Akasa Euler Fanless case

@ rotor The only way i can get mine to align was firstly to move the sata plug lead to the blue one on the outer edge otherwise the inner blue one lifts the corner of the board making it slope even when it's pushed down so the CPU posts are uneven. Then to get mine to align i have to push down on th...

Re: Akasa Euler Fanless case

Hope it's something like that.

Was hoping someone could pull out the speaker jack and check theirs is the same and that it's normal and not some warning error light reflecting from the board.

Re: Akasa Euler Fanless case

If you turn off user acknowledgement then the Management Engine requires a username (nominally "admin", but you can change it for obscurity) and a password for access. Intel enforces relatively strong passwords. If you want to go through the trouble of setting it up it will further require certific...

You still have to authenticate the session. At least a password is required. You can set up TLS certificate based authentication if you like. Also, in my note above, I mentioned the lack of VPN support. The main reason you want VPN support is to move the management access onto a separate LAN with b...

I just disabled it in the Management Engine BIOS. KVM sessions are just accepted without acknowledgement.

Thankyou for the review. I can now see from the pics it would be a lot of hassle trying to fit two drives and using an Msata with a normal 2.5" storage drive would be the best option.

Re: Akasa Euler Fanless case

I know it would be less hassle to use the Msata but it's just annoying that the mini slot runs at half speed and the Mini Slot is not set as a bootable device unless you have intel raid drivers installed so it's a pain swapping between windows and linux and such.

To keep things clean inside i was going to use wax thermal pads like you get on the bottom of intel stock coolers but as you say it gets quite hot i think that i had better use thermal paste.
