    That M1 case does look very nice. I like how they managed all of the stuff in there. A few years ago the Node 202 was small but came with thermal issues. I’m starting to see those thermal issues as my computer ages and more power is required.

    I hear you. That'd be an undertaking to migrate all of that for sure.

    Lackrack FTW! They're a legit thing. I've seen a few where people stacked them too. When I finally migrate to a rack format (Still rocking a HP z640 Tower) I'm more than likely going lackrack.

    That M1 shipping from Taiwan takes 1-8 weeks. That’s a long time

    Detuned processor, now it sits nicely at 70C after turning off Turbo mode. No computer mods until I want to upgrade the whole thing.

    But... no turbo mode = slower.

    yes but saves me about 10 degrees on CPU temperature. I needs a new build but would rather put the $2k elsewhere.

    I don't know. My i5 keeps hitting 88C even turned down to 4 GHz. New thermal paste and reapplication of the heat sink coming tomorrow.

    Definitely do a before and after! Keep an eye on your ambient temps and you'll have a good estimate of your Delta-T.
