ducennejul thank you for the response and the photo.

It will be interesting to learn how well your system cools once the air gap around the edges is closed off.

Good modding,

Yes. No way for cooling with tape around.

If I close the gap with some tape, there is still the original air holes at the bottom on the black plate.
but I am sure that will increase a bit the temp.
That would be great to have the same case a bit bigger with a more efficient cooling system.

I have the beatiful DNK-H Case and the components (check my signature) for a few days now!

Everything works great Out-Of-The-Box! I allready love this little baby, because it looks sooo
nice in my living room, it is freakin' fast and all the well known Audio, Video and Office applications
run smooth and gently!!!

"Finaly got my HDMI AUDIO working FLAWLESS!!!"

Just mounted the EFI, opened your command file, confirmed 2 times with Y,
typed my password, restarted and there was the Output SAMSUNG - Type HDMI!!! :)

Fan Speed and noise is absolutly OK! As I prefer to listen to music when I work and watch movies LOUD!

When I'm done with my build, I will post some pictures here! ;-)

To reduce fan noise use this BIOS adjustments:
  • Monitor / CPU Fan Control / CPU Fan profile - Manual / CPU Upper Temp - 75 / CPU Fan Max Duty Cycle% - 50
  • Ai Tweaker / CPU Core Voltage / Offset Mode - / 0.08
  • And make sure, that you install resistor with the Fan

That's it.

Thanks to all involved--this is an awesome little system :thumbup:; easy setup, and great compatibility...I was able to use this guide to install a 4590 I5 with a slim HSF, and used an external 230W power supply for HP laptop/dock, so I can use this as a hi-power unit video editor, or whatever, whenever I need to ( native board support for the 85W TDP processor ). Mostly will be using as everyday unit, on lo-power use ;)

Most of my hassle in this build was not build-related, exactly--I was trying to get Asus to cough up the specs and details for a good power supply. I ended up relying upon 'hearsay', because those morons couldn't find their own engineer specs.. :(
what I used:
mobo =Asus H81T R 2.0
i5 4590 3.3Ghz 6mb
128G BP4 mSATA 128Gb OS drive
16G Crucial DDR3-DDR3L 1600 Mhz
HP Smart 230W AC Adapter PN: AT895AA#ABA (Tip: 7. x 5mm)

First few startups and light use showed ~85W total use by watt-meter , including ~22" Dell monitor!
The Display and Computer each use ~40W each, in use...

Might send some more details after I get it into a case--probably will be installing in a drawer under my main display..

Anyways, kudos & thanks to you guys (esp woodoodm!) :clap:

I love this case! and they are actually having a new version coming up this year.

If you go to the shop page. they are even providing configuration for the machine

I am very tempted to order one but for the skylake, they are using ASUS H110T or GIGABYTE MDH11HI.

Are those two motherboard hackintosh-compatible?


You can find the details of the two motherboard here

https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/H110T/

I am noob in hackintosh and i saw some previous posters suggested that Gigabyte GA-H170TN might be the better choice since GA-H170 is well supported here. For some reason it is very hard to find Gigabyte GA-H170TN in my country..

I just received my DNK-H 2015 case, and put my system together (Asus H110T, i3 6100, 8Gb RAM, 90GB SSD). When I plugged the power in for the first time, the system booted but the fan didn't work all together.

I go to the UEFI setup page, after accepting the CPU fan error, and it just says there is no CPU fan plugged in.

I can see an extension plugged-in the fan cables, with what seems is a resistor. If I take it out, and plug the fan directly to the motherboard, it recognises the fan and it starts working.

I haven't started to install my CustomMac / hackintosh until I understand why this is happening. Is this the correct way to work? Or, even with the resistor on, the fan should rotate when the system starts?

Hope to ear from you soon.

Best regards
