Re: Perfect Computer Chassis: In Win 303C (Forget the KL07)

Sorry the FT02 and FT05 do though. I thought you meant upsidedown where the motherboard is 180 degrees not 90.

Re: Perfect Computer Chassis: In Win 303C (Forget the KL07)

There are quite a few, the FT04 being the notable oneas far as SPCR goes.

My Issue with the mainline FT/RV series is there hasn't been new 180mm based model in years. Nobody else seems to have even a dual 180mm standard case.

Its hard to stomach old school windows and cable management.

Re: Windows virus infect Android?

Even if the machine reading the files can't get infected, it can still pass it on. You would need some way to clean the files first.

I have the 4TB Ironwolfs in my new NAS, they are not that quiet, the spin isn't bad, but the accesing is a clicky. They are good VFM though. Certainly not going to be buying 8TB of SSDs any time soon.

Re: Quiet workstation - case and cooler?

Also maybe consider the FT02, it has 5x 3.5" and 5x 5.25" and 1x 2.5". Realitically three of those 5.25" bays could be used with 3.5" drives. Maybe even hotswap them, if you need that.

Shame it's so expensive.
If you don't mind how it looks the RV05 is very similar and almost half the price (£74 Vs £119).

Re: New PSU

Probably the AX760i as it has corsair link. Sorry for my foggy memory. If it were the AX760i, the relevant fanless operation range should last about 170W, not that much, neither the fan is a particularly good sounding one (though from what you said, that fan might also be defective/worn).

Do you know if that goes for the EVGA versions? like the G2 and P2? or purely a Superflower deal? As far as I know they use usually the same ball bearing fans, so they should perform quite similarly (if not pretty much the same).

Said that, the Leadex Gold 650W and 750W have the best fan profile of the Gold line up, while the Gold 850W is rather noisy, so I guess that even for the Platinums the 750W may be a better bet than the 850W (take note that usually Leadex Platinum units have a slightly more relaxed fan profile, over...

Hi welcome to SPCR. I'm no expert, so please bare anything I say with a pinch of salt. The Leadex platform is also used by EVGA.

Re: Thoughts on used 780 vs 960/970?

The 980 and 970 are tesselation monsters compared to the 780 and AMD cards. My mate had to do a similar trick to the AMD users with his 780 and Hairworks in the Witcher 3. Essentially force lower levels of tesselation. I think its Nvidia's way to promote new features in their cards in their Gamework...
