I expect pricing to come down on gen 2 real soon ;) AMD is on the gas!

It is a NCase M1 v6.1, the NZXT that you see is a fan controller stuck to the side of the power supply.

Jeezus 22.5c just before I pulled the enermax and took a snapshot of the temp. 15 min. Later, after I installed the noctua cooler the ambient was 22.5c...when I screenshot the temp.

I posted the before and after temps to show the improvement achieved by replacing the Enermax cooler with the Noctua Cooler, so the ambient, in this case, would be... meaningless.

yes, it does, Noctua has two smaller TR coolers that may let you populate those slots, for me, I need the cooling more than I need ram for V-Ray rendering. It also interfered with my top PCI slot, and as you may know, our MB PCI x16 is the top and 3rd lower, and the 3rd PCI slot is less than Ideal for an air hungry GPU, however, I have just recently discovered the Noctua cooler bracket has the option to slide the cooler up a bit so that is a relief. A good vid on the Noctua TR coolers - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYYMzJKxYig

Standoffs come in all sorts of sizes, maybe mounting some standoffs to the bottom of the case would be a solution.

Really interested in this, I may build one for my wife. Doesn't the fan mount to the rad and the whole assembly mount to the bottom of the drawer? really well done by the way!

I am not a gamer, but I'm sure you can, it is a powerful machine, however, I have heard that Threadripper is not the ideal gaming CPU, I think Intel still has the best single core performance for gaming. also, something to consider is that options are limited for the AMD TR.

And oh yeah, there is only about a .1 mill between the cooler and the glass :/

Oh, yeah, I wondered about that but the description for that part didn't include my cooler, may have to order it and give it a try anyway. Thanks!

Thanks! :) I'm not sure why, but I actually like the brown pads on the noctua industrial fans. And I like the fact that they will last longer.

She has the H500 case fans in their stock neg. air configuration, GN tested this configuration and found that it worked pretty well. the only benefit I found swapping the fans to the front on my sons H500 is that it helps keep the dust out with pos. air pressure, the temp drop was negligible.

really nice work Gamer Girl!

Yes. I designed a case for it but I don't have the equipment to make it yet. https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuNh0O7GLya-gb1HZrxHZG8XZRJYBQ

I ran out of USB headers so I used an NZXT USB Internal Hub Controller, and yes, I used a pass-through HDMI to use the little guy as my 4th monitor. Thanks for the kind words...mate ;)

I have the same CPU GPU combo, I use my machine for CPU heavy 3D modeling and rendering, but I agree with TheDankKn1ght, there is a better budget balance for gaming. Damn nice build though! The CM is not bad, I've seen a hell of a lot worse lol :)

this was my first build, decided to do this at the last minute, low on cash and needed this system asap for my work. those items made the most sense to skimp on considering the type of work I am doing. The CPU was the highest priority for the Applications I am using. I will allow myself more time to gather cash for the next system ;)
