I'd be hoping to fit the below components (or similar) and just wanted to check here to see if anyone spots an obvious issue I'll encounter. I had been considering an AIO water cooler for the CPU but from reading through the thread there seems to be some issues with kinking in the tubes.

1 x Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Tri-X 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
1 x Intel Core i5-4670K 3.40GHz (Haswell) Socket LGA1150 Processor - OEM
1 x MSI Z87I Gaming AC Intel Z87 (Socket 1150) DDR3 ITX Motherboard
1 x TeamGroup Vulcan RED 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit (TLD316G1600HC9DC01)
1 x Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache - OEM (WD30EZRX) HDD
1 x Silverstone Strider SFX Gold 450w '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply (SST-ST45SF-G)
1 x Silverstone SST-RVZ01 Raven Mini-ITX - Black
1 x Samsung 120GB SSD 840 EVO SATA 6Gb/s Basic - (MZ-7TE120BW)
1 x Noctua NH-L12 CPU Cooler

I noted Whoanelly's previous post regarding the very tight fit of the Noctua NH-L12 on the MSI board but I'd imagine in a case like this there's going to be tight fits regardless.

@ Whoanelly, did you have any issue fitting the GPU riser with the CPU cooler in place? I have heard that it's quite tight and may actually interfere with the PCI-E port.

I would very much welcome suggestions for alternative components if there are any issues with the above.

My only suggestion is maybe swapping out the 290X for a 780 Ti do to the amount of heat that these AMD cards put out, especially in a SFF case like the RVZ01.

this looks like it could be a promising cooler!

I think that's pretty good considering the size difference between that and the NT06/Noctua, I wouldnt want to to let it get much hotter than that (60C). I'll have to power up the raven tonight and run the test again...I might have saved the report on the desktop, cant remember.

So assuming my numbers are around 50-52 and yours is around 57 (all under a synthetic load) I guess the question is is it worth almost double the price to shave off 4-5 degrees (and losing sight of your MB to a monster heat sink) if your average is below 60C

Looks alright. My only thing is I guess you'll lose the ability of the top/side fan in the Raven/ML-07 @ 74MM in height, so it makes it as big as the NT06 and Noctua

But learning from this thread the following should be considered:

is it quieter than the NT06?
is it cheaper than both the NT06 and Noctua,?

Lastly how does it compare to the AXP-Muscle/100?

Keeping this thing as cool as possible on the inside should help reduce the noise, and Im personally all about the fans with this build, so losing one for me is not a consideration.

For only a few degrees, I'd send the Noctua back. First try the AXP in your system before you start sending things back to make sure you are ok with the noise levels from the fan.
post #1076 of 7142
yeah thats what Im thinking. If noise is acceptable, temps between 50-59 is good enough for me, and we can call it a member recommended cooler thumb.gif Just waiting on getting the NF-S12 fans I ordered to replace the 2 15MM's. I got my Sony Blu ray drive today too, so might as well wait till I have everything to rip is all down again. Sucks about the restocking fees though with newegg...but I did use the cooler.

Sorry for being quite, so I've posted my build.

- Silverstone SST-RVZ01 Raven Mini-ITX
- Asus Z87I PROFESSIONAL Intel Z87 (Socket 1150) DDR3 Mini-ITX
- Intel Core i5-4670K 3.40GHz (Haswell) Socket LGA1150 Processor - OEM
- Asus GeForce GTX 780Ti DirectCUII OC 3072MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
- TeamGroup Vulcan GOLD 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-19200C11 2400MHz Dual Channel
- Kingston 240GB SSDNow V300 Drive SATA 6Gb/s 3 2.5" x 2
- Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 240GB 2.5" SATA 6Gb/s x 2
- Western Digital Scorpio Black 2.5" 500GB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s
- Thermolab LP53 Slim & Quiet CPU Cooler 53mm height LGA1155,1156
- Corsair Fan, SP120 PWM High Pressure Fan 4 pin, Dual Pack x 2
- Silverstone Strider SST-ST45SF SFX Series - 450 Watt





After a week of testing with this case I've found that the corsair fans are too noisy.:mad:I placed them under the gpu, so I've swapped them for 2 Akasa AK-FN058 Apache Black Super Silent 120mm Fan - 4 Pin PWM:)
Also I've ordered (should arrive tomorrow) Akasa Viper R High Performance S-Flow fan & Thermalright TY-147 140mm Case Fan to try on the thermolab cooler cos again the corsair fan are too noisy lucky for me the asus board has 4 pwm fan headers:thumb:

This build is mainly for gaming on my 42" led lg tv 1080p up to yet only played titanfall & cod ghost (all setting maxed out) vsync 60fps CPU max temp 53c GPU 63c

I'm not in to stress testing so no max temps but I've have overclocked the CPU to 4.2

Any question please ask:thumb:

Not really a question, but a statement. Please understand that even though the board has 4x 4-pin headers, only the CPU/CPU OPT are actually true pwm, and the CPU OPT is only if you have it set to mirror the CPU header. The other fan headers only use voltage control, NOT PWM.

I only meant that I could plug all 4 fans in to the motherboard so I didn't have to use cable splitters or separate fan controller

Also asus fan-expert 3 supports 3 case fans to run at different speeds at different temps indepently

Jim, do you know if the ASRock Z87E-ITX chassis header is true PWM?

Nice build! How did you mount a 120mm fan to the LP53? I'm thinking of using the LP53 with a noctua 80mm fan.

How are your fans setup on NH-L12 and sidepanel? Intake or exhaust?

I'm thinking the AXP-100 fan might be a little louder than the NF-B9.
