And I noticed the thing about the orientation, but it seems to me it only matters if you are putting the case in the vertical position, because it has to do with the direction the heat pipes are running. (at least according to the manual for the CPNS8900)

I don't have the cooler myself. I was trying to buy it before Newegg messed the order up and I had second thoughts and decided to cancel. My experience is that most itx motherboards have the cpu socket close to the memory sockets, I believe it follows intel reference design. Looking at a few youtube videos and online user reviews, it seems the pipes touch the ram (from the side). Not sure to what degree.

I read about the orientation in the online manual, however, i think it also affects horizontal orientation for the reason that there is less pipe surface in direct contact with the cpu core. I don't think it is much of an issue with AMDs as their core are bigger compare to intel. The intel core is rectangular, not square.

Did you try placing with the pipes in the ram's direction? Did they make contact?

RAM clearance for standard RAM tho would be good for people who's CPU placement is in the middle of the board.

I was looking at the Big Shuriken 2 as well, but it seems to have clearance issues with many of the boards. I'm looking to use the Asrock Z87E and with that I think it would hang too far over the opposite side of the board.

So at the moment I'm tossing up between the NT06-PRO and the AXP-200 (possibly paired with a Prolimatech 140mm x 15mm fan if the stock one is too noisy). I'm concerned about the noisiness of the NT06's 20mm fan too, but I'm hoping it might be possible to squeeze a quieter 25mm fan in its place with low profile RAM. I'm not sure if either of these are options for your board though. Since the NT06 fits on the Z77E, it might fit the Gigabyte board too. Or the Noctua cooler with a slim 120mm fan in place of the stock 25mm fan might be another option. I don't like the idea of having two mismatched fans on the cooler though, especially when all the boards only give us 2 fan headers to play with.

There's also the smaller AXP-100 and the Samuel 17. Both could be used with a slim or full size 120mm fan. That seems to be about it for air coolers for this case from what I can tell. Clearly Silverstone want us to be using the NT06-PRO - I'm sure it's no coincidence that it fits the available clearance with only a couple of mm to spare.

In a couple more hours, I'm gonna be test fitting the Seidon 120M on both an ASRock Z77E and an Asus Z77I-Deluxe in the RVZ01. Those are the only two boards I have to test with, sorry I can't test with the ASRock Z87E to help those who have that board.

I'll post thoughts and pics.

Just waiting to get the little man into bed......... rolleyes.gif

Do the silverstone case fans seem a little noisy at system idle? Do they have to run 100% all the time because they're not PWM? Not sure if my board (Z87E-ITX) can control the speed. I might try two Noctua NF-S12A PWM fans instead. I have no idea if that will actually help cause I'm a noob, hah.

I guess I'm most concerned with idle noise. Since the 780 Ti ACX will probably be the loudest thing in the box at load? I really have no idea...

Yeah I have noticed that. They are much louder than I expected them to be, and they definitely run at 100% all the time.

I'm having a ton of trouble getting my card in right now. I'm running an Asus DirectCU II 290 in the case, I had to unscrew the power cable out of the back of the case and pull it out a few inches because the hard plastic on the inside was interfering with my 290. Also, I can't seem to find a spot to mount the GPU support brackets and I think it's because one of the pipes on the side of my card sticks out a bit too far.

Is it safe to run without the bracket?

Ok Folks, here is an update.

The Cooler Master Seidon 120M does fit in this case with the ASRock Z77E-ITX motherboard. ZERO modifications required to fit, except a couple of zip ties.

Photos:

Sorry, for the crappy pics, but hey, its 1:20am here and I've been up since 4:30am.











The ambient temps in my house at the moment is 23-24c, idle temps on i7-3770k@4.6Ghz@1.28v is 24-26c, 60 minute run on prime 95 with same OC setting had a max temp of 67c.

And I am headed to bed now, I will do the test fit on the P8Z77I Deluxe tomorrow or sunday. Night biggrin.gif

Hello everyone!

I've been following this thread for a few weeks and ordered the parts for my build yesterday afternoon, they just arrived this morning:

  • Silverstone SST-RVZ01 Raven Mini ITX
  • Silverstone ST45SF-G Strider SFX Modular 80PLUS GOLD
  • Silverstone SST-PP05-E Short Cable Set
  • Intel Core i5 4670K, 1150, Haswell
  • Gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI, Intel Z87
  • 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair DDR3 Vengeance (CML16GX3M2A1600C10B)
  • 2GB ScanFX GTX 770 Overclocked (MSI GTX 770 OC)
  • LiteOn DL-8ATSH Slim Slot, Black, 8x DVDRW
  • Crucial M4 128GB SSD (spare from existing machine)
  • 1TB WD WD1003FZEX Black 3.5" HDD
  • Xbox 360 Wireless USB Receiver
  • Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-Bit DVD En



I'm going to be building it this afternoon, I'll post some more picture later. I'm going to be using the stock CPU cooler for the moment as I've read about the many troubles with clearance throughout this thread. I would like an AIO solution but I figured I can get it up and running with the stock cooler and sort it out later.

Awesome Jim, so did everything fit snug with the Seidon or did it look like there was some room there. This looks like it could be the perfect AIO for this case. I also notice no kinks or bending of the tubing in a way that would be worrisome.

It's pretty dang snug Zombie. On the pcie side, the tubes touch the riser card, not with any undue pressure, but they touch, and the end of the rad tank just touches the lip of the case when putting the side panel on. It's a pretty tight fit, but it goes together almost as if the cooler and board were meant to be used with this case specifically, it's that close.

And your correct, that's why I wanted to try and get those pics through the venting on the rear of the case, the tubing is touching the ram, the riser card, and the fan housing, but not the fan blades. I'm using one of the skinny fans that comes with the case, set to push air over the rad, and out the side panel, since with the fan set the other way, the temps were worse than the NT06 AND the stock cooler. Those little skinny fans really aren't that good as a "pull" fan on a radiator!!
