There is still a hard drive there and it is, if not moved by you, right at the front of the case so quite audible.

Xbox one controller here. Works really well with Windows 10.

There is a difference of 3 to 5 heat pipes and the ability to easily have two fans on the Noctua. It may help just replacing the fan but...

Yes as with it moved to the top bay and the front HD rack removed, there is space for the 120mm fan. Plus, there isn’t the drive in the...

Most likely the cable. If using display port try hdmi instead, unless you need G Sync. Try a different cable.

That’s a good price. I went pc case gear as I like having a local place for warranty. I paid $30 more.

Case fan is in. CPU cooler needs 4 x M3x16 screws and 4 x M3 washers to install it so once Bunnings opens after Christmas, I'll get them...

The fan that I removed from the case was a Foxconn PVA080F12H. Specs from Amazon: Brand: FOXCONN Model: PVA080F12H Size: 80 * 80 * 20MM...

Make sure you run Windows Update and see if everything has been installed. Best thing to do first with any new Windows installation. Dell...

This should fix it. After a trip to the hardware store in a couple days to get the M3 x 16 screws, it sill go in. Should be great!...

Request an investigation and report as missing. They can’t just then go by the scans.
21/12/2020 - 10:37
Having a quick look it appears that unit has a considerably smaller graphics card in it. I don't think the clearance is there for that fan....

One mentioned it was too loud once replacing the others with Noctua. I like the one where they placed a 120mm Noctua fan where the HD...

Drops to 60-70's max instead of 100C. It may look the same, but better fans and better cooler. Three heat pipes vs five. It's just a better...

If you have a close look at the plastic front cover, you can see air can come in from the bottom through holes in there. it isn't as bad as...
18/12/2020 - 15:57
It does appear so. I have ordered that cooler and an extra 2 x 92mm fans to set it up like the picture below. That should do the trick....
18/12/2020 - 15:56
Yes there are two fans. A pancake and the tower. This machine has the tower yet under intense CPU load, it still hits 100C. After...

I’ve already looked at a couple options. Noctua most likely the way I go but not sure which model. Have to do some measuring.
