Small form-factor type gaming PC connected to the Samsung 40-inch TV in the living-room.
Pulls HTPC duty as well.
how are the temps on the Zotac 970 on load/gaming?
i have to say the Hue+ really makes your build stand out a lot.
Where I live is hot (Trinidad) so average load temps hover around 65C on GPU intensive titles in the day. Temps are significantly lower at night.
Idle temp is about 40-43C.
Been planning my build for weeks; been worried about trying to fit an IU01 and Hue+ in this case. Glad to see it's possible with room to spare and cable management can still look amazing. Love your build.
Make sure and link it here when you're done so I can ogle it. :)
Any problems fitting this cooler with your mobo and case?
None at all...which is why I went with the Nano S in the first place. It's a real dream to build in.
I really don't know why you got such a cooler for and non-overclockable CPU unless there is a way to do it. Anyways great build!
Mostly for aesthetics, but I may get a k-SKU CPU and Z-series motherboard in a future iteration of this build.
Better to 'have it and not need it...' as the old adage goes.
Migrated everything from a Corsair 250D...
Unfortunately, there's no fan-splitter included. You'll have to purchase one separately, and run your fans directly off of a power-supply connection.
OK, my mistake...I just re-checked the parts box and a 3-pin fan-splitter IS in fact included.
One fan on the splitter has all 3 wires, while the other fan has 2.
Check it out...
(Let me know if you can see the image)
You certainly can.
I don't think the 7-12V that is supplied by your motherboard will be an issue for this cable.
Fortunately, we have some of the best internet speeds in the region... from 30MB down/2 MB up, all the way up to gigabit fibre.
I myself have a 150MB down/10MB up connection. It's pretty sweet. I can't complain too much.
