      AM4 Socket Support   04/24/2017

      Due to technical issues, the topic on "AM4 Socket Support" has disappeared. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we are trying our best to have this topic back up as soon as possible.   As we read in the topic, there is a lot of discussion going on when the new brackets will be arriving. We can tell you now that the brackets will be ready for pre-order on our CM Store EU tomorrow and will be ready for shipment around the 16th of May.   You can continue the discussion in this newly created topic:

  1. GALAX GeForce® GTX 1060 http://www.galax.com/en/graphics-card/10-series/galax-geforce-gtx-1060-goc-3gb.html Dimensions(with Bracket) 195*130*41.5mm
  2. No entiendo la pregunta o cual es el problema, si es que el ventilador hace mucho ruido porque llega a maxima velocidad debido al procesador que se te calienta mucho, tal vez si tienes dinero disponible, podrias cambiar el enfriador tx3i con uno mas grande con ventiladoir de 120 o 140mm
  3. Hi, I test this modified CPU cooler in a sort of open test bench outside the case, adding the Scythe Mugen 3 attached to the CPU back plate and with with a 2mm thermal blue pad in between, so far the results are not quite special, room temperature about 26 degrees Celsius, and the CPU was reaching 40 degrees at idle even with such extra CPU cooler attached to the back plate. The next step I plan to increase a bit the cooling performance is to increase the size of the extra heat sink at the base of the front CPU cooler from 100x40x20mm to 100x60x25mm, below are shown some photos, thanks for watching
  4. Hi, today I attached together the CPU cooler with the new CPU heat sink bracket, later I install in the motherboard, thanks for watching
  5. Hi, this weekend I drilled and tap the holes to attach the brackets for the CPU secondary heat sink, may be I overkill using four screws for each bracket, some photos below, thanks for watching
  6. The retention bracket for the original Hyper 212 cooler was made just for LGA775, the mounting hole distance for LGA1151/1150/1155/1156, are all the same which is 75x75MM, therefore I think the new retention bracket and back plate you got must be OK
  7. Hi, finally the metal work factory has made me the new modified brackets for the CPU cooler, I just need to make some holes on the aluminium heat sink for the screws, some photos below, thanks for watching
  8. Hi, I think there are variety of ways to can attach the fan to the case, I usually tap the mounting holes of the fan to use 5mm nylon screws, but in this case may be you can use M4 nut and M4 screws, inserting the screws from outside or from inside if there is no space for the head of the screws from outside the case, another way is choose sort of elastic silicon clips which dont require any screws or nuts, is up to you to choose
  9. I think is the GLADIATOR 600 , you can check the link ....http://www.cmstore.eu/spare-parts/gladiator-600-front-panel/
  10. I completely agree, three pins fans are better than two pins fans and four pins PWM fans are better than fans with just three pins,
  11. Hi there, today at the metal work factory we finally bend the latest revision of the motherboard tray and squeeze together the self clinching flush nuts for the ATX standoffs, later after I drill some holes for the screws, I still need to bring the various case components for the electrostatic powder coating
  12. Hi there, Yesterday I bring home the new revision of the case feet made of Stainless-steel 3mm thick, hopefully this weekend I can drill the holes for the screws, I attach below some photos for comparison between the new and the previous design of the feet which were made of normal mild steel 3mm thick
  13. Hi there, a bit of time available now to do some case modifications, I order the metal work factory to modify again a bit the case feet and also the cutout of the motherboard tray, the latest case feet will be made with Stainless-Steel 3mm (bullet-proof) thick, which is harder and stronger than usual mild steel, I reduced the height of the case feet by 20mm = 2cm, the original design was 100mm height, therefore now the whole case will be above the floor by just 80mm, I think this is still enough and not too close to the floor to hinder the airflow to enter the case through the case bottom, below some photos of bending/fold process at the metal factory
  14. Nice and tidy design! well done
