Hey Mariolillo, this looks great thanks for sharing.
I bought a EVGA graphics card with ACX cooler over the weekend. I'm interested in the PWM mod you did as this look like something that might benefit my system. Is that a mini GPU fan header to 2 4 pin Fan adapter in the pictures? How are you powering the ACX fans then? Do you know if there is any problem powering an extra two fans (i.e are you more likely to burn out the GPU header?)

I'm thinking about upgrading the fans in my case as well. Sounds like you've had some real success with those Prolimatech USV12. Just wondering if you had considered any other fans?

Ive currently got the NT06-Pro as a CPU cooler but it seems like going the one of these thermalabs CPU coolers with room for a fan above it is the way to go for both noise and cooling.

If my memory is correct, the only thing the GPU fan header is doing is receiving the rpm signal and sending a pwm signal, the power is coming from a molex connector on the adapter. I could be mistaken, but I believe that's what his setup was!

Can you try aida64? You get a 30 day free trial. Run a load test with that and it will give live load temps.

I just tried it out, ran it for 2 minutes on the first test. Then I ran a second test at a little over 3 minutes. Let me know if this is sufficient or if you need me to run it a bit longer. The sound from the PC at full load sounded like a fatty PS3 for sure. My 770 fan seems gets rather loud under load and is very noticeable in this case. I was playing some games tonight on here. Good thing for the receiver to drown out some of that noise.

Thanks for posting. I still kind of like the RVZ01 more than the ML07. The ML07 just looks boring and doesn't have the beauty of other Silverstone HTPC cases including the smaller ML line, IMO. Plus I think the ML07 is going to be a bit more expensive too than the RVZ01.

Is it possible to fit an AIO unit in this case with the Impact? I was thinking the H75.

Really hard honestly, and the H75 is almost impossible. The Cooler Master Seidon 120M (NOT THE 120V!!) is a guaranteed fit with most boards (I got it to fit with the impact, the asrock z77e-ITX, and the asus p8z77-I deluxe), but, it's still really tough to do, and requires you to use the stock slim silverstone fan with the cooler.

Thanks for that dude. Is that push/pull? Another quick question you may be able to help me with, is there enough room for 25mm fans under the GPU?

Nope, I set the fan as a "pull", so basically it was side panel>rad>fan>

And yes, you can fit normal 25mm thick fans in the GPU area with most dual slot GPU's.

So using the 120M, with the Impact using the slim fans included with the case should I be able to use a push/pull on the rad? I dont know the dimensions of the slim fans thats all. Appreciate all the help.

As Jimhans said, NO room for more than a 12,5mm fan pulling. If you dont mind, can can put your pushing 25mm OUTSIDE of the case:
25mm fan pushing >> panel >> rad >> 12,5mm pulling.
Even then, I was not able to fit the 120m Seidon like some others, the screws on the cpu block were bulging too much to be able to strap down the tubes around it. You best bet is if you own a SHORT graphic card, you can put the radiator at the end of GPU section.
I also tried the H75 and RMAed it because it was too tight even with only the 12,5mm fan pulling. I have the Impact as well BTW.
After trying H75 and 120M I decided to go with a performing air cooler instead of underperforming water cooling (because of tube kinking and single fan usage or modding the case).
After reading reviews of many, I went with the NT06-PRO which is made for this case anyways...

Those were my 2 cents!
