I was looking at the Motherboards again - b350 vs x370 - and I really dont see much difference between the two except for the sli part - usb-c and all that other stuff is on most b350 boards as well. chipsets differ some, but as far as i could find out not to the Point where it should make a difference for someone like me that is not going to do crazy overclocks. My main reason for now to consider x370 is the visuals - and the cooling of the mb i'm hoping those designs will provide - they just look so much better. I love the taichi - but I Kind of refuse to pay extra for wifi that I dont Need. also, i dont Need 12 usb ports o0 Actually, I dont Need anything those x370 offer me in plus of a b350.. its really just the Looks :D but do i want to pay a 100 bucks just for Looks?

atm i'm in love with the AX370-Gaming-K7 from Gigabyte.. :)


I don't know about you, but MSI's X370 XPower Gaming Titanium have my wallet hostage. I don't need anything of the X370, but those aesthetics.

The Titanium was my favorite for a looong time and still is, for me, hands down, the best looking mb out there atm. But since I'm gonna have a black PC, I decided to go with my 2nd favorite - and that is the gigabyte ax370 gaming k7 - I think the brushed black should blend in nicely with the case. I ordered it yesterday because it was at a nice price (100 more than a decent ab350 board, but still 100 less than the titanium) - delivery time atm is given as 1 month

Haha! I'm planning on a white on black setup! Wanted an all white rig, but that seems out of the window. That did set me thinking! Wonder if Calyos would be open to suggestions of an all white enclosure.

Does anyone know if Calyos is consulting someone on building a good case? I mean even with case makes such as Fractal Design, Corsair etc etc, there are always caveats. I understand they are fighting function with cost there, but we are getting a premium case now. I do hope they are consulting reviewers on getting the features right. Are there any reviews out there of how building in the NSG S0 would be like?

I think it would be really easy to make an all white case: just buy white sticker-sheets? (maybe make sure they are heat resistant?). dont know the name in english - maybe something like this?

Amazon.de

Calyos is working with a french modding group afaik - but I dont think there is any prototypes in testing as of this moment (could be wrong though)

I'm so excited for tomorrow! Ryzen 5 revealed. I'm leaning towards the Ryzen 7 1700 atm - temperatures without OC are just amazingly low :)

edit april 11th 2017

after checking a few reviews: ryzen 5 1600x is a very good processor - but I feel that I can get more out of the ryzen 7 1700 - especially regarding the heat - it runs VERY cool when not overclocked (3ghz) and aparently some people get 3.7ghz out of it without upping the voltage and thus no difference in temperatures - so thats the way to go for me in the NSG-S0 . My build is almost planned out now - only waiting for the Vega 10 now :)

Actuellement, pour une utilisation streaming - jeux vidéo - H24

Je pense prendre un R7 1700 et l’overclocker pour gagner en performance.

utiliser la Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut comme pâte thermique . La meilleur dans sa catégorie me semble.

Pour la carte graphique, j’attends Vega :)

Pour l'écran 1440p, j'attends :) Voir ce que le marché proposera .

En alimentation, je prendrais une 80 Plus Platinum semi-passif modulaire :)

Pour les petits ventilateur 120mm, on verra ^^ y en a qui traine chez moi :D

Je ne sais pas quoi prendre en carte mère, j’attends d'avoir plus de donné sur le comportement de la ram - cpu - gpu

L'avantage de devoir attendre, c'est la possibilité de prendre son temps et de commander au bon moment :)

D'améliorer ou de changer ses choix pour qu'il corresponde au mieux à ses besoins.

Je ne pense pas faire mes achat avant juillet ~ aout :)

I was wondering. Does anyone have an idea what would be an effective way to mount the Nsg on a wall?

Functionally, it would be hard because the fins have to be exposed. Unless you'd want the tempered glass side against the wall.

There was an article I read before where a guy used cold air from the outside to passively cool his PC through holes in the wall and funnels. Obviously he didn't have an NSG 0, but you get the idea.

Hi here my thoughts about noise reduction.

Short:
Power supply: be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W
Graphics card: GTX 1080 Ti custom design preference on no coil wine.... ( bc i heared all Founders edition have coil wine)
Either EVGA or Zotac.. both don't loose warrany bc removing the cooler and overclocking Here a list of details but its from 2014 ( https://www.ht4u.net/reviews/2014/grafi ... index3.php)

I want to get the SLI version ( space is not that much of a problem maybe i want to add a 2nd card later on.)

Going SLI will require a fair amout of power especially if i want to overclock my shit my estimate is 850W based on this article : ( https://www.computerbase.de/thema/netzt ... -anno-2205 ) sry its in german u may use translate ;-)
As for graphics card i did not select any model so far bc of hackintosh compatability of other components.
probably GTX 1080 Ti custom design preference on no coil wine....

Noise cerated by the Power supply is also an issue for some devices. i will get this power supply: be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W it should be the most silent on the market even though it has a running fan (u only notice/hear from 80%(680W and more) it is more silent than a semi passive device bc is has less electrical noise... (very good voltage regulation and almost no rille) i hope this will reduce the coil wine everyone should be afraid of ;-)
Alternative Power supplies in the 850W range:
1. be quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 850W
2. Super Flower Leadex Titanium 850W
3. Corsair HX850i


if anyone interested in wall mounting: i would wall the PC if needed by setting it on a custom steel shelf with holes in the shelf below the fins. the shelf would be l shaped from the side similar like a wall mount for a tv, but l shaped and not flat. Its the only reasonable way i can think of wall mounting it. I have tested it with a washing machine ( something like this https://www.amazon.com/Wall-Mount-Perso ... B000G1C7A4)
