    So I've been fiddling with a lot of the default settings on my X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI and you would think GB just copied all the optimized defaults from their ATX version, without a thought that maybe ITX users might be using a smaller case and actually want the idle heat/power savings. Not to mention stability issues... which hopefully changing Idle current level from Auto to Typical current level has solved. And AMD, maybe give us some proper Ryzen power saving settings with your drivers? Make me go to Reddit to find some guys tweaked power plan...

    I've managed to tweak a slight undervolt, disable some crazy default OC settings - I think SoC/Uncore OC mode being on was responsible for chipset temps in the 60's at idle which are now in the 40's and lower fan speed curve. All without much noticeable hit to UI performance (in games the RX580 is the bottleneck).

    i havnt used the gigabyte x570 itx boards, but i have built 2 x570 master systems for friends, and i found GB's bios absolute rubbish compared too the x570 itx strix and x570 dtx impact.

    Glad you were able to achieve an undervolt and reduce temps :)

    Well crashing is still here... :lol: So infrequent it's not much of an issue, just a little annoying. Anywho... cooling. The wraith prism is just too fucking noisy. I've been looking at <158mm coolers and the good ones are all around $100, if I spend another $50 I could get an Artic Freezer II 280. Seems like a no brainer?

    one of the x570 master systems i built with a 5900X is currently running an Arctic Freezer 280mm, its a brilliant cooler, and can be found cheapish on Amazon.

    Apropos of nothing, I’ve come into possession of 2 pairs of 120mm fan mount clips for the Noctua NH-C14s. I’m going to be selling the cooler soon, but if anyone wants the clips for their ncase / nr200 builds shoot me a message.

    Hoping someone can help me here. Does anybody know if the Alpenföhn Black Ridge fits on an ASUS B550-i?

    Yeah it looks like you may run into issues with RAM clearance, and you definitely can't mount the fan in the bottom position - has to be on top of the heatsink.

    In-Win have made a twist on the InWin Chopin case and called it a Chopin Pro.
    It comes in what they are calling Titanium Grey and they have put a 200 watt PSU in it - up from the 150 watt they normally have in the non-pro Chopin.

    The point of the post is that I can’t find anyone who sells it. If anyone has any tips on getting Chinese stuff can you help me out with getting some please. Even a few of the 200 watt PSUs would be great.

    You would think so wouldn’t you, but no, just a new colour and bigger PSU.

    Isn't it just one of this power supples in the Chopin
    Buy InWin B1 Mini-ITX Case with 200W Gold Power Supply [IW-B1-BLACK] | PC Case Gear Australia


    There's also an intersting variant of the Chopin, that allows an optical drive

    Thats what I am suggesting..
    Buy the B1, swap the PSU, sell the B1 with the 150W supply for $50 - $70 or so..
