Thank you very much smile.gif

I think the NH-L12 bottom fan hits the ram a bit, but I don't think it's something serious.

I'm also in need of help about this actually.
Also planning to build on this board paired with 4670K inside sg05, I'm choosing from these coolers: Noctua L9i, Thermalright AXP-100R, Noctua L12.

Does anyone have any experiences with the Silverstone NT06 cooler on this board?

I'm installing in a Silverstone RVZ01 case so I need something low profile. After reading through this thread it appears that the NH-l12 has some clearance issues and I want to know if this one is any better.

You might go have a read through this thread here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1466816/silverstone-raven-rvz01-ml07-owners-club

The NT06-Pro is finicky as hell in respect to CPU socket location, and in the RVZ, there's not a whole lot of space for much!!

I know it was the recommended cooler for the case. All else fails i will send it back. I went ahead and purchased it. When it comes in I'll post an update.fingers crossed.

Hey guys, debating a prodigy build at the moment as I regular a lot of lans and lugging my 600t is getting a bit tedious. My biggest concern dropping from ATX is losing my soundcard (Xonar DX), I hate using others PC's without the soundcard now as it's kind of converted me over the years to decent sound. I noticed this board and wondered what the soundcard is actually like that can be attached to it? Will it be a downgrade from my Xonar? If so I'll have to consider the Prodigy M instead and got M-ATX, but the airflow and layout of the prodigy M is rather strange :-/

I had a xonar DX for a while, and I honestly can't tell the difference between the DX and the card that comes with the Impact with my sennheissers. But I'm also slightly hard of hearing in one ear...... I say go for it, but, I am definitely NOT a fan of the Prodigy case, honestly I would say go with a different case personally. My LAN rig is a Silverstone SG05 with a 3770k and a 780Ti both liquid cooled, and it's half the size of the prodigy smile.gif

I ordered most of the parts today for my new build and went to a shop where they display this board to pick one up. Good thing I did because I learned that the CPU cooler I had in mind seems to interfere with the Impact Power thingy. (Mugen4, not the fins but the heat pipes interfere)
I've tried placing a few of the demo cooler that were available to see which one fits but so far most of them seems to have very slight contact with the heatsink and the Power thingy, or the cpu fan hits the RAM.

The parts I ordered should arrive tomorrow. Im going to the shop again tomorrow morning so that I can start the build as soon as the delivery comes and I need some help with choosing a CPU cooler. I was hoping for a tower cooler with 120mm fan but if it has to be smaller I guess I dont have much choise.

CPU will be 4771. Since I have no plans OC'ing for now, my priority will be , silence(7) : cooling(3) , though I will be playing games like BF4 so it has to have decent enough cooling for that.
I haven't bought the RAM yet and it can be either one with or without a large heatsinks. Liquid may be a good choise for this Mobo but Im not prepared for the risk of moisture just yet. I dont know much about it and air cooling cant go wrong if you compare them.

While I go back the thread searching for other posts about coolers, I would appreciate if someone can help me by throwing a list of cooler that you know will work with this board.

I've been reading and posting here for a bit and I've read every post. What I've learned is that for this board the best cooler is water. It be from a custom loop or from a closed pre-built setup.

Thats my 2cents.gif, good luck with your build.
