A "drag" to become famous, a somewhat alternative installation experience

Installed many times, and used a lot of chassis. Most of them are conventional, they are side-penetrating or not side-penetrating, and the doors are opened on both sides. However, there are also some relatively alternative chassis, which will give people different feelings. This time, I came across a rather different one, and I would like to share my experience with you. After all, a cookie-cutter style can be tiring, so it's still pretty fun. This is the U6 computer case from Josper. The first impression it gave me was an ordinary metal case with a brushed metal front and an aluminum panel. The sides have glass side see-through. Looking at the size, it seems to be a chassis that supports M-ATX, but it is actually the largest chassis that supports ATX. The front face is very simple, only the front interface in the lower right corner has the power button, USB-A interface, USB-C interface and audio interface. Looking at the rear of the chassis, it is a conventional structure at first glance, the middle is the PCIE slot, the bottom is the power supply position, and the top is the motherboard interface. However, there are two thick handles at the back. What does this mean? For ease of transportation? The transport should also be at the top. Look at the right side of the chassis, which is also transparent to the glass side. If the wires inside are messy, people will see it. From above, you can see that the top is also made of aluminum alloy, and there are large heat dissipation holes. However, this seems to be integrated with the front panel, and there is no place to install the top radiator. Does it not support the top fan or water cooling? There are more and more questions. Look at the bottom, wow, it's also aluminum, it's really all aluminum and glass. Installation instructions and accessory box. Accessories, in addition to conventional screws and straps, there are 2 CPU power supply extension cables, this is a bit interesting, why give this cable? I am getting more and more curious. Then I also found that I don't know how to open the case. After researching it for a long time, let's look at the manual. After looking at it, I found that this chassis really has a different idea. First, remove the four screws on the bezel shown in the picture above. Then, when you see that the two handles are not working, you just grab them and pull them back, which is like undressing the case. Of course, it's not easy to take off your clothes, you need someone to help you hold the clothes, and then you can come out. If you're alone, you'll also need to hold down the top of the case with one hand and pull back to pull the case out. Therefore, this chassis is removable, with a glass side transparent and aluminum alloy shell on the outside, and a rack on the inside. This design has its own characteristics. Look at the rack that was pulled out. The bottom is a fully enclosed power compartment, and the top is hollow. Well, there is a cover on the outside of the chassis. Then, the upper left corner did not penetrate the threading hole of the backplane. At this time, I suddenly understood the function of the CPU power extension cable. PCIE slots, the first three are active and the last four are dead. Looking at the back panel of the chassis, you can see that the left side of the power supply compartment is the hard disk rack, and the right side is the position of the power supply, with a filter. Well, after reading it, I'm ready to install the machine. This kind of transparent rack should be easier to install. The motherboard uses MSI's MAG B660M MORTAR WIFI, commonly known as mortar. There is a saying called Mortar of Indecision, which means that if you are hesitant about which motherboard to choose, use MSI's Mortar. MSI's B660 mortar motherboard is powered by 12 channels of 60A power, 12 channels in parallel, upgraded to an integrated DrMOS power supply, and the maximum current through a single channel is 60A. At the same time, the third-generation titanium inductors, 6-layer PCB and 2-ounce copper reinforced design are still used to ensure product quality. There is also an extended heat dissipation, which can ensure the heat dissipation effect of the device. The CPU power supply adopts dual 8PIN power supply, which is strong in the B660 motherboard. Four DDR5 memory slots, near this corner, have CPU FAN, PUMP FAN, and ARGB interfaces. There are 6 SATA ports near the lower right corner of the motherboard, which is 2 more than the 4 of the ordinary B660 motherboard. On the underside of the motherboard, there are common interfaces, as well as additional fans and ARGB interfaces. In general, the interface of this motherboard is still very rich. The board has 2 PCIe x16 slots and one PCIe x1 slot. The first one is the direct output of the CPU, and the supported specification is PCIe 4.0x16; the second one is provided by the B660 chipset and supports PCIe 3.0x4. There is also 1 PCIe 3.0x1 slot. The first PCIe slot has metal armor for protection. At the same time, there are 2 M.2 slots on the motherboard, and there are frost cooling vests on them, which can provide good heat dissipation. All-in-one I/O interface, with four USB 2.0 ports, three USB 3.2 ports, 2.5G wired network port, wireless network card antenna interface, DP interface and HDMI interface, and audio interface. Come to the motherboard and install the motherboard into the rack. This one supports ATX motherboards, so I moved the screws first. Put this MSI B660M mortar motherboard properly, you will find that the upper space is very small, and there is no threading hole left for the rear back panel, so there is an extension cable in the accessories, this extension cable, you can walk to the right to the back concealed wiring holes. The next step is to install the power supply. The cover at the rear of the power supply can be removed, and then the power supply will pass through here. The power supply is the HCG of the well-known brand Antec, 850W, which can provide free replacement for 10 years, which is enough to rest assured. Antec is a famous old factory with a history of 35 years, so it is still trustworthy to replace it every 10 years. The power supply has HYBRID function, which can be more silent. Gold module power supply, the interface is rich enough. And it uses a 20+8pin motherboard for power supply, leaving room for upgrades. The power supply adopts active DLC+DC-DC conversion, 120mmFDB silent fan, and liquid bearing. 140mm small size, the lowest fan speed is 0, energy saving and noise reduction design. All Japanese capacitors, more OCP/ OVP/ SCP/ OPP/ OTP/ SIP/ NLO line protection. After the power supply is put away, it is ready to install the CPU cooler. This time, the HXW-240 ARGB water cooling radiator of Josberg is used. The packaging is neat. This 240 water-cooled body is white, from the water pipe to the water-cooled head to the cold row, including the wire, is also white, in line with the white trend. Two white fans with ARGB lighting effects, like the water-cooled head, are also white wires. Supports various platforms from AMD and Intel, with good compatibility. Install the fan on top of the radiator. After installing the cold head of the striped shirt, the installation is OK and relatively easy. Then I made a mistake, here we look at memory first. The memory is XPG Longyao LANCER DDR5 6000 memory set, the cover is full red background, the right side is the image of the two-dimensional character "Mila", and the left side is the outline drawing of the memory. There is XPG LANCER RGB at the bottom left, indicating that ARGB is supported, and the color synchronization of the whole machine can be realized. The rest of the information indicates DDR5 memory, 16GBx2 capacity, 6000MT/s. The surface of this XPG LANCER 6000 is white, with DDR5 in the upper left corner and twill, which makes the memory not monotonous. Metal heat dissipation vest, the top side is a triangular light-emitting area. We see that almost the entire top is covered with luminous material, which has a matte feel, and the words XPG, which looks more beautiful. After installing the memory, the reverse color series is still very compatible with the surrounding environment. However, we see that after the cold radiator is habitually installed on the top, the fan of the cold radiator conflicts with the memory. So, in fact, when this chassis was designed, the top only supports fans and does not support cold row installation, which I ignored. So I re-installed the cold radiator to the front, and now there is no problem. Install the cold row to the front, you can see the whole picture of the memory, and there is still something to gain. After installing the graphics card, it shows that it is AMD Radeon RX 6700 from Sapphire. It adopts Navi 22 medium core of RDNA 2 architecture, 32 sets of CU computing units, and the number of stream processors is 2304; the number of texture units and rasterization processing units is 144 and 64, video memory bit width 160Bit, video memory bandwidth 320 GB/s, with 10GB large video memory. There is an SSD mounting position above the power bay. The overall installation is basically completed, is it a bit like a Tai Chi map, black and white. Then push the chassis frame in, and the screws are fine. Front photo, an aluminum metal chassis that looks like M-ATX is actually ATX. Start the computer, it lights up. The RGB color of the water-cooled head and memory is uniform, and the lower left is darker. Enter the system normally. The display is MSI's 2K gaming screen MAG274QRF-QD, IPS screen, 2K ultra-high-definition fine picture, 165Hz high refresh rate, and 1ms GTG response speed. At the same time, it supports NVIDIA G-SYNC, the screen does not tear, and achieves a good gaming experience. Its color is rich, using the original color quantum dot technology, its color gamut can easily cover 100% sRGB, 100% AdobeRGB and 97% of the P3 color gamut. Color accuracy is excellent, with an average Delta E of 0.82. Run Master Lu to see the system configuration, the CPU is i7-12700K, the memory is XPG DDR5 6000MHz 16GBx2, the motherboard is MSI MAG B660M MORTAR WIFI, and the display is MSI MAG274QRF-QD. Running Master Lu, the running score is 1.89 million, of which the memory score is 270,000. We see that the memory is working at 4800MHz. Running the AIDA64 memory test, the read is 73008MB/s, the write is 67848MB/s, the copy is 6498MB/s, and the latency is 91.5ns. Then we overclocked the memory to 6000MHz. At this time, the reading is 89739MB/s, the writing is 80200MB/s, the copying is 79558MB/s, and the delay is 78ns, which is a lot improved, about 20% higher than the silent frequency of 4800MHz. After running Master Lu again, the memory score rose to 330,000, an increase of 21% compared to the previous 270,000. In general, DDR5 memory is quite powerful. XPG's memory is OK, with good looks and strength. This U6 chassis of Josberg is full of features, and Josberg always seems to like being different. The pull-out design makes it easier to install and feels a lot more comfortable. The compact chassis can support ATX motherboards, and the design is unique, but it has a unique taste.
