Presume the H7 itself got a fan blowing thru the heatsink or exhausting heat from the heatsink? Did u use the included thermal paste or applied any?

Maybe it is due to the restrictive front panel which limits the amount of air intake, hence cooling isnt that great? But, what matters more is the cpu temp when gaming. if nvr hit above 85degC for like 1 hour of gaming, it should be fine.

$98 from lazada. I was waiting for it also, but totally no news about it leh. Cryorig also never reply emails and stuff. So just wack. If it comes out in the next 1-2months then FML.

Yeah, i havent try on gaming yet. I'll try it out tonight and see how it goes. Hopefully all is well!!

as per my earlier question to you, your room is ac or not? if not ac, still acceptable if room ventilation is constricted (meaning ambient temp can be around 30deg c) but if it is ac it is a high.

arctic mx4 is fine.
