Yesterday itchy hand already assemble the casing.
I notice the noisiest component is the power supply.

I wonder anyone did manage to put in a fanless PSU into the casing or not.

The silverstone SFX PSU. Now seriously considering the fanless ATX PSU if it can fit into the casing.
Might need to change GPU to ASUS mini CU series if want to use fanless ATX PSU.

Can't find them in Malaysia but they are available in Amazon USA and it delivers to Malaysia.

Since I don't do overclocking,air cooling is sufficient already for me.
Just wanted a quiet PC when I am not playing game.

A comparison of casings I have. From left to right Silverstone Raven RVZ1, Silverstone SG03 Aluminium, NCase M1, Johnsbo V3+.

Any local seller? Forumer?

Its a crowd funded project.
You have to wait for the 3rd batch which no one knows when.

However you can ask the owner on the project to see he got extra unit or not.
Here is the link for the original source for the project.

SX600-G already arrived.  You can order from hikari85

Went to viewnet on Saturday. No luck.

Anyway I am still considering either SX600 or fanless PSU.
I can change my GPU to Asus GTX760 mini to accommodate the space for PSU.

I got mine from hikari on sunday. Got very low scraping sound like the fan scraping the grill. Also got chirping sound when the fan is about to start. Only when i put my ears close to the intake. No coil hum heard so far. The fan is absurdly cheap-ass for such an expensive PSU.

Add 1 more, the fan doesnt stop when started after 15mins, that means the internal temperature probably already exceeded 45c. Not really semi-fanless, just delayed the fan start only tongue.gif. Eventually the fan has to start due to the internal temp exceed 45c.

Many thanks for your feedback.

Looks like hot Malaysia weather will cause the fan to always turn on.
I will start planning for a fanless ATX power supply for a quiet PC.

Finally I have finish fitting my Ncase with fanless ATX power supply.
Lucky mt VGA card still have like 2mm gap before touching the PSU casing. Save my money to buy another smaller VGA card. smile.gif

Fits nicely. The long power cables would need trimming in later stage.

2mm gap before the heat sink of the GTX760 touches the power supply.

Last time I bought my Ncase V2, it costs about rm700 including EMS shipping.
That time USD was around 3.0 I think.
Now USD is 4.4
ouch!!!

Now Ncase is V5 already. Time flies.

My Ncase after 4 years still going strong.
Change to 600W SFX PSU and it still can fit a very long 3 Fan 1080Ti.
