So tiny, so clean! +1
why had you removed the thermal cap on the CPU?
delidding the CPU can improve thermal conductivity. replace the orginal thermal paste between the cap and core with liquid metal and put the cap back.
Did it improve it and if so how much?
from what i've read on the 6700k it's usually 6-10 celsius. intel using cheap TIM unfortunately
Nice man! What stress temps do you get with that cooler and the delidded i7. I want to delid mine but scared ill ruin it. Ill prabably wait a year so that way if i mess up ill have an excuse to upgrade
You must really like mini itx cases. Nothing wrong with that. +1.
Sweet deal on the Nano, got mine for 480ish a couple months back
Amazing build; I'm planning out one just like this. What are your CPU temperatures under full load?
by full load you mean P95 something like that? never tried but i say it will be hot as hell espacially in summer. when i play LOL, the hottest core never go over 65 in this weather. watching movie is alot cooler than gaming. Idle is about 40 degree. surething that i got benifit from deliding the cpu.
Thanks. Yeah it would be great if you tested CPU temps with a benchmark program. Doesn't have to be Prime95; Asus ROG RealBench is probably more realistic.
i dont recommend R9 nano, coil whine is common issue of AMD Fiji GPU. mine has slighly coil whine. GTX1070 is more powerful and cooler.
