Description

Q500L with simple modifications, 2x120 cuts on each sides + rear vent cut. Used in HTPC Position

Push pull for 240 GPU rad (4x NF-A12x25 PWM) Push pull on CPU Rad (stock x2 NF A12x25 PWM replaced by x2 NF-F12 PWM) Right side intake (changed : was exhaust on pictures) x2 NF-F12 PWM Front intake x2 NF-A12X15 (slim)

A lot of Noctua fans I know !..

All the fans are controlled by motherboard (also GPU fans) with Argus monitoring software that is a must for fan control. It can even control Z390 motherboards, speedfan was not able anymore (too old :( )

the temps are so low !!! Even at full load and OC (2150MHz) the 2080ti never goes higher than 55°C, with only 1000RPM on fans :) The NH-U12A is also a cooling beast for 9700k

so silent config with a lot of power, happy with this low cost case

Lots of negative pressure. That thing is going to take in dust like a dyson.

you're partially true. No matter about positive or negative pressure, it's a myth. Since you have no air filter on intakes it will make no difference. Furthermore, this case is so opened everywhere that I think it's near neutral pressure inside. But you are true that the best way to prevent dust is positive pressure with air filters on intakes. I will try to make it like this ;)

I realize tat you cut a large hole, but suction is not a myth; its physics. The myth is that it affects cooling performance.

I reverted the 2x120 case fan on the right, so now I should have something near neutral inside I think. All intakes are filtered. It should be OK.

not enough Noctua,there should be another Noctua exhaust at the back and another 120/140mm at the front as an intake. :)

Did the cutouts compromise structural rigidity? I'm considering doing the same thing

No problem at all with rigidity. i often swap the case to make modifications and it does not twist

Is this PC still available? And are all the Noctua fans included or do I have to buy them because they have no price tag.

I'm trying to save up to buy later on either this year or next.
