The case can only handle 62mm and smaller coolers. As I said, the price is better ($29.99 vs $54.99 for the Scythe) and it also has the benefit of not overhanging the RAM, which is important because I live near a microcenter which is having some great deals on RAM kits, but none of them are low profile.

Basically, I care more about price than I do about squeezing an extra 200 MHZ out of the CPU.

Am I suppose to put ram before the cooler? (Asus z170i and TR axp-100r)


Or am I suppose to fit the ram

I see absolutely no reason not to fit the RAM first. Having the RAM in already might slightly inconvenience mounting the cooler, but with the cooler installed first, it might be hard to impossible to get the RAM in. Unless there is some nuance to your build I'm not getting from your picture.

In other news, Microsoft sneezed today.

*Linux users countered, saying their sneezes were more secure and open source.
*Mac users said their sneezes are better, more magical, and "just work".
*Windows 7 users complained that Microsoft was forcing them to sneeze, too.
*Playstation owners deployed a list of games that include sneezing at 1080p.
*The EU sued them for trying to monopolize sneezes.
*Privacy advocates believe someone is tracking sneezes.
*Consumer advocates called it a $neeze and expect Microsoft to bill them per $neeze at some future date.
*The average human being had a normal day OBLIVIOUS to the anti-Microsoft knee jerking.

Ram first. My cooler is a HUGE pain to mount... Looks like you shouldn't have a problem though....

Just did the step up process with EVGA for the GTX FE 1070, hope to squeeze it in the RVZ01 with no issues.

you won't. There will be a lot of space left, don't worry. The FE is smaller than most custom PCB. I own a 1080 GTX FE, same size. You can actually 2 25mm fan under it and there is still space left

I am also going to get a GTX 1080. But I am not sure if I want to get a card with a blower like the FE or one with big intake fans.
I think the reference card usually doesn't have the best cooling solution but I heard a blower maybe better for small cases since it pushes the heat out. Anyone has experience?

There is some MSI custom PCb with blower fans.

I choose that FE because my holiday was starting and it's was available and the price was not a lot higher than custom PCB in my country.

In the rvz01, i set up a custom fan profile (50% fan speed at 70C), i put 2 silentwings under it pluged on the 12v (fan extension card X99 type). Full load (Overwatch with a 200% scaling) it's not realy noisy, a bit more than a custom PCB, still nothing to be concerned about, i'm sittings between 72-73C, clock at 1810MHZ stable. I tryed W3, but the game do not push the 1080GTX enough.
