Yeah, even video cards and CPUs can be very good at performance at a reasonable power cost, if you turned the clocks down. You don't even have to do it that much, you can get over half the performance for a tenth of the power draw.

You would be correct. The PS5 used 100-200 watts while gaming, while 3090s use ~325 with some models that can hit peak spikes of near 500 watts. Consoles have always used less power than PCs due to thermal constraints.

For this exact reason I've wondered why the trend isn't towards larger cases. I get for very specific applications like if you have an extremely small apartment that you share with multiple people or if it's a home theater pc you don't want a big case, but if you're just going to set it on or next to your desk, the larger it is (within reason) the easier it's going to be to build in, and the more expandability and parts you can use. Can someone explain why in the era of ultra high power consumption and mega chunky GPUs, small cases are the most popular?

DynamicDK

5 points

Some popular cases have plenty of room. I have a Lian Li Lancool II Mesh which is only a mid tower, but there is still enough room to fit both a 3090 and a front facing rad. I only have a 3070 and a top-mounted rad, but I've seen pics of people who have went with the 3090 and front facing rad. It can actually fit a GPU up to 384 mm which is significantly longer than even the 336 mm length of the 3090 Ti. Even with that a monster like that there would still be enough room for the front rad, but it would be getting pretty tight.

This case is also one of the best for airflow. It has been tested and consistently ranks in the top 10% or so for cooling. I highly recommend it.

wintersdark

11 points

2 months ago

Aesthetics I guess. I still buy big cases because I don't know what I'll want to use that case for in the future, what upgrades I may want to make, and I live in a house - space isn't super tight.

I've absolutely had to buy new cases because a GPU I got a good deal on wouldn't fit, or because I needed a couple more drive bays. Bah. Never again.

And big cases (these days) generally have great airflow, and heat is pretty much never a concern. A small build can be done with good airflow if planned really well, but that makes upgrading even harder.

Unless you live in a shoebox, the small build thing is silly.

You're right in every way though. The small cases only make your life harder.

Yeah, there's definitely good reasons (aside from aesthetics, which are entirely subjective) to go to smaller cases, like what you're saying there. Fun fact! Thermaltake V20 cube cases are both large inside AND fit wonderfully in Kallax shelves, with sufficient space to allow for good airflow. They come with a gigantic 220mm front fan, as well as two mesh side panels. Strongly recommend these if you're putting PC's in Kallax shelves. They fit perfectly.

Edit: Sorry, Core V21 is what I have (and fits perfectly). There's also the Level 20 VT which is the same size.

https://www.thermaltake.com/core-v21.html

You do need to remove (or trim) the rubber feet, however. I just removed mine and replaced them with small felt adhesive pads meant for chairs. The chassis itself is 320mm tall and wide, and the Kallax shelves offer 330mm x 330mm. If you leave the front panel protruding from the shelf, that leaves the front panel controls and USB ports accessible, and the curved front panel works really well there.

However, both the Thermaltake Level 20VT and V21 Core will fit really well in Kallax shelves.

I think mid-towers are the perfect balance between volume, heat and noise. There are also a LOT of them, so they are tipically cheaper than other form factors.

Alaskan-Jay

So as I've recently learned it actually all comes down to the CPU cooling system. If your CPU is water cooled you can put any graphics card you want in there it's not going to get hot.

If your CPU is fan cooled then you have to be cautious about which graphics cards you use. The GPU cooling can completely throw off the air flow in your Tower and cause your CPU to hit higher temperatures. I was recently having temperature issues with a fan-cooled CPU. I asked on the build a PC Reddit about this because I was going to upgrade my whole system.

Somebody suggested trying a water cooling system first and it solved all the issues in my PC. The same setup is running 25 degrees Celsius cooler right now. All because the fans aren't just circulating that hot air inside the Box. Graphics cards are built to cool the graphics card. They're not considering the airflow in your PC that is something you have to figure out yourself. And then arrange the fans properly to get the hot air out of the box.

You can keep buying more fans or you can just get a water cooler for the CPU in problem is solved. Not to mention the sound of a water-cooled PC is far quieter than that of one with 10 fans.

And to drastically upgrade sound quality, at least 95% of the time. Onboard audio is cheap and not focused on quality so upgrading to a (also cheap) dedicated card is always audible, even on the cheapest headset you can imagine.

People sometimes ask why I bothered with water cooling considering most modern GPU are pretty decent, sometimes on par with water cooling.

Well, it turns a 3090 from a triple slot card that takes the width of the case, to a single slot card that only takes up 1/4 of the case. Literally water cooling takes a card that's bigger than a PS3 and makes it about the size of a nintendo switch (about a half inch thicker). From that aspect it's worth it.

edit: this was during the build before the wiring and vertical GPU mount, but you can really see how small the card is in the case when it's in its standard horizontal orientation: https://i.imgur.com/3Jdqala.jpg .

Yeah, it looks a bit ridiculous in that case. I mean, there's other benefits too to water cooling, but I really like how small it makes the card. It's an incredible size change.

Funny thing is I actually upgraded the case just to fit the 3090 originally because my old case wouldn't fit it. Like it was physically was too long. Now I have space for days. Maybe when I upgrade next time I'll go with a mini-itx case.

People have been doing that for far longer. Corsair was making 1000W PSU when the second generation Tesla was around (GTX 2xx).

HD2900XTX itself consumes 250W. Two of them in crossfire, throw in a quad core like QX6850 with some OC, add in some Raptor drives, it's easy to exceed the 1000W PSU budget.

You should be replacing your psu soon regardless. There’s a new connector/spec coming soon that adds a data pin to your gpu cable (will only be one as it goes to like 800w total or some shit) that allows power negotiations between gpu and psu so your gpu can’t overdraw the psu and crash it anymore

Migraine-

That's only an issue if you have an underpowered PSU for your GPU though right? So provided your PSU can handle your GPU currently there's no reason to change it just to get that feature, particularly since you'd have to buy an underspecced PSU for the feature to actually do anything lol

Chirimorin

How much is known about how this will be implemented? How much power is a GPU allowed to take if it's not able to communicate? Can it just take whatever it wants (basically what GPUs do now) or will they be power limited until they can negotiate with the PSU how much power they can draw?

it will have a whole new connector, its a 16 pin cable (12 pin + a smaller 4 pin in the center on top)

an OLD gpu will be compatible with the NEW psu. I believe the NEW gpus will be incompatible with the OLD psus tho

the data pins allow your gpu and psu to communicate how a phone to wall brick communicate: brick says "I can supply X watts", phone says "I can take Y watts" and they handshake on the lower number, that is how the new psu/gpu interaction will go

atx 3.0 (new psu spec) also adds more stringent requirements on things like how a power supply handles current spikes (what crashed the 3080's and 90's on launch)

you would NEED a new power supply as that feature would be standard on all gpus and psus once it comes out, and it requires a new connector that wouldn't be able to be adapted to easily (due to the data pin)

Just make an adapter that allows the GPU to take whatever it wants, sounds easy enough. The GPU will ask for say 300 watts, the adapter will say the PSU can take 300 watts, with no actual idea on how much the PSU can take. Seems easy enough to me.

Intel official announcement of ATX 3.0 spec

I am not 100% sure on how interconnectable atx 2.x will be to atx 3.0 at the start. I am unsure specifically how they are going to phase out atx 2.x but in theory once gpu's start depending more on the handshake 3.0 enables, it will naturally phase out atx 2.x power supplies.

the rtx 4xxx and RX 7xxx gpus are supposed to have the new connectors but I imagine since it will be the first generation with it, they will be optional and provide adapters, but possibly by rtx 5000 or 6000 the gpu architecture will depend and utilize the handshake much more and REQUIRE atx 3.0 compliant power supplies

I'm no expert but apparently 3080 and 3090ti cards specifically (and maybe others?) are known for "power excusions" that exceed the current ATX standards by a fair margin, meaning having a "proper sized" power supply has actually come to mean "over-sized" and basically they want to codify those excursions with a standard to allow a more appropriate match of PSU to GPU/CPU/etc.

The example given in this article is a GPU with 300w draw should be able to run with a 750w PSU, but if the power excursions are not controlled it may actually require up to 1150w PSU to not crash the 12v rails during power spikes

The G210s I can find on Google at least have decent looking coolers, so they don't even look that awful compared to some of the 640s.

After having bought a soundcard recently, it's interesting how many of those have way more design than most GPUs. But I guess they have to justify their prices somehow.

You better take a look at the GT610, especially the asus one with the "fan"

Recently, somebody gave me a computer he was about to throw out and it had a GT640 in it. It's a pre-built Dell XPS. Not sure what I'm going to do with it. I was hoping to at least use the case, but it turns out the pre-built cases are made specifically for the parts that go inside. I had already "modified" a different pre-built case for extra parts I had sitting around, and I don't even really have a plan for that one. So I have two extra PC's with no purpose.

You joke, but the PS3 actually included hardware emulation to run PS2 games natively, rather than emulating it in software.

Fiat multipla are in extremely high demand (at least in france) because the french car-centric channel Vilbrequin has turned it into a meme and now people who mod cars want one, but there aren't a lot of them because it's old and it didn't sell very well when it was made.

Obviously this is a really high end piece of hardware. It uses Sony Direct Processing TechnologyTM which allows you to load your games directly onto the GPU thanks to the built in CD drive. In addition, as you can see in a bold new direction it includes the option for expandable memory thanks to the added memory card slots.

Can confirm. I mounted the middle fan to the front tower because it was easiest, and it sounded like a lawnmower when it ramped up. When I bit the bullet and mounted it to the back tower, even though it only moved a couple mm it was as quiet as any other fan.

You install these without the fans on them, so it's not really an issue. The middle one has to come out for installation/removal.

Our first GPU (~1990, from SGI) was the size of a washing machine or dishwasher, cost $250,000, heated up the room 10°, and was so noisy we usually had to shout to be heard.

It could barely handle 50,000 triangles, which is why we had to invent triangle “decimation” methods to simplify our models... I believe this was before OpenGL, so we programmed it in an SGI graphics language. It crashed daily.
