  1. hi Prastistron, and thanks for replying... yes that window panel would be sweet to see the insides of 110A, and thats whats missing in CM mini itx cases - windows! yes, you can cut out one easy with dremel if airflow is not a issue to your case. as for your question i conclude your CM button isnt the colour you want to match your setup... basicaly i went to electronic shop with my CM led in hand, the store guy went right to the drawer and just gave me a green one (after tersting it with a watch batery to see its glow) ...then at home i put it inside the hole of the front CM button and wraped the +/- electrical cords around each metal poles of the led (no solder needed) - heres a pic below: so basicly unclip your button, take out the glue holding the led and take it with you to store for a swap 1€... as long as the 2 poles dont touch eachother, youre good!
  2. well, i went to my pc store and ordered a new case... not a coolermaster brand, sorry!!! guess i wont do a review no more LOL Thermaltake core V1 black, with glass panel ...a MITX case with more room for cabling + for a better CPU cooler, than this basic intel one. my CM power button broke and inside theres is no more clip to hold button in place at front, so i had to jumpstart trough motherboard how about this CPU cooler? GEMINI M5, from coolermaster of course !!!
  3. trabalho de equipa impecavel, parabens! espero que ganho premio modding pc em lisboa
  4. im trying to figure out how to use gigabyte FUSION app and control the RGB on my new GPU logo... my MB is not AORUS but why app center mentions FUSION 2.0 when interface aspect shows an older version app center only lets me control the MB leds, but nothing on GPU... so i installed AORUS ENGINE and ...nothing there !!! am i missing the plug to an RGB cable from my GPU to the MB ???
  5. congrats! very practical for transportation, very clean job ...and very colourful so whats GPU you got? couldnt find it in pics. happy new year.
  6. cool mod !!! old & rusty = tetanus LOL do the acrylic blades go all way inside the case OR you cut them as the shape of front panel (to avoid taking space inside the case, for your components) sand, metal tears, barbe wire and bullet holes make a good madmax aspect to the case, indeed just keep your cigarette flame away from spray can, ok? continue the good work.
  7. heres a resumé of my pc stats by CPU-Z:
  8. As for the previous point #4, about SSD upgrade: Does my MB gigabyte Z370N-wifi, has the correct slot for M.2 stick ??? MB info mentions: << There are two 2280 M.2 slots = one PCI Express 3.0 x4 SSD /// one suporting both PCI Express 3.0 x4 and SATA-600. >> Does this SSD M2 stick, fit ---> CRUCIAL brand, to match my SSD disk https://eu.crucial.com/eur/en/CT500P1SSD8
  9. so, what else can i improve among CASE, KEYBOARD, MOUSE, MB, CPU, GPU, RAM, SSD ??? 1) when money allows, i´ll check back on modular green sleeved CABLES - once i decided for a case and know the distances for cable management. 2) ive already upgraded the GPU 1660 and RAM 16gb, but upgrading the CPU implies probably a new MB which implies new RAM (endless tail-bite), and thats a no-no moneywise! 3) maybe a faster SDD disk - already have Crucial 500Gb with a R/W of 560/510 Mbs and 80% free space, so no need to touch there, really. 4) as for installing a SSD M.2 stick, im afraid is not compatible with the INTEL OPTANE slot (optane is expensive and wont improve my pc performance, with its tiny memory size) so i wont touch OPTANE either. 5) ive bought a neat and heavy key-personalization CoolerMaster CK350 keyboard, along with a basic 2-buttons no-RGB, but fast at 16.000CPI - the Endgame XM1 mouse, so im good there on perifericals (but those mouses are the first thing to brake and im used to swap twice a year LOL) CONCLUSION: my pc works fine, processes fast, speedy enought for my demands in gaming and internet, so what else ???
  10. i fancy the newest cheap coolermaster H100 case as a next upgrade but i would love to have some glass sides like the cool TermalTake V1 which is bulkier than my actual CM elite !!! lately ive been dreaming of a bigger and more expensive open-air mount, where cable management and space is not a problem... only dust and hits !!! no protection at all... cooling at its best !!! the MINI HYDRA metal plate. https://www.hydra-shop.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/IMG_3921-1920x2223.jpg
  11. nice case! i might upgrade mine to one like yours! H100 is taller and has an handle and cool big RGB fan... what not to like - cheap too as you said, do pay extra for modular psu and you will only have to plug half the number of cables from basic PSU (cant cut them off) had same problem with my case, so i swapped psu now i only have 4 cables to run leaving my case with more room inside - lot air flow!
  12. heres the new GTX 1660 super mini ITX... its silent allright - quiet at last !!! im so tempted to paint it green also... another day, another mod soon. ---
  13. UPDATE after 11 months: finally upgraded de GPU and end this noisy fan, while keeping the mini ITX format (AKA no artic copper cooling block) a GPU to match my motherboatd GIGABYTE i went from: 180$ msi GTX 1050 ti @4Gb --> 266€ gigabyte GTX 1660 super mini @6gb ---> https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N166SIXOC-6GD#kf ...i also doubled my RAM from: Gskill 1x8Gb @2600Hz --> Ballistix 2x8Gb @2400Hz (didnt know if my MB supports 2 x 3000Hz)
  14. so, as suggested by a msi forum expert, to solve my noisy gpu fan, i can either: 1) change for a new MSI fan at second hand representative warehouse guy, but its invalidated by my green paint on GPU 2) i buy another gpu similar (180€) or higher (300$) duhhh ...then the msi helper, gave me a link for a new fan replacement: ARTIC CELERO 3 passive fan for gpu https://www.arctic.ac/eu_en/accelero-s3.html
  15. well, since i used my green led strip for the interior, i had to go to the motherboard fan settings (gigabyte RGB fusion app) and put it back to a green also!
