You shouldn't ever run furmark on the GK110. Look in the Ti owners forum and the Classified owners forum, it's been known to cause damage to GPU's due to it causing an overload in some of the VRM's on the cards. It's baked a couple of 290x's also. Ultimately it's an unrealistic "test" and has to many flaws to justify its use. I'd loop unigine valley 1.0 and do some prime95 at the same time to find a more realistic temp personally.

Eeeeek! Good to know! I'll have to do that in the future.

Can you fit a full fan above the motherboard? Maybe get a higher RPM fan to get more air in the case. Cool the ambient around the GPU and CPU

Hmmm. That is actually a good idea! I'll have to try that.

I also got my Raven RVZ01B 3 weeks ago here in europe. Planing to build a following system once the 600W PSU will be available:

- ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE Motherboard
- Intel Core i5 2550k @ 3.3 Ghz + Zalman CNPS 8900 cooler
- 2 x 8 Corsair LP 1600 Mhz Blue memory
- Inno3d 780 GTX Herculez 3GB 3-slot card (YES 3 SLOT i already tested it and fits without the Silverstone fans by the case)
- 1x SSD 128 from samsung, 1x 2,5'' HDD 500 GB from WD Blue, and slim Seagate 1TB Drive (all of them are 1platers FTW LoL )
- Silverstone slim PSU cable set (A MUST!!! but not avail. in europe :/ ) and ultra thin sata cables smile.gif


I do not intend to overclock anything. As soon as I'll install my components I will post some photos.

My only concern is the amount of vent space for the card.... normally it runs idle @29C and 61 stressed....but this case will obviously add
a small air gap and i hope the card will manage to pull some air in through the 2 x 120mm openings. The GRP fans are 3 x 90mm i think.

Interesting that a card that big fits! But.. will it be good for the system overall? You would have to take out the fans in the GPU area which makes difficult(or impossible?) the positive air pressure inside the case, thus the system overall would be hotter.. Please give feedback if you build it, I'm interested on how it would behave in this case thumb.gif

So, my CPU finally arrived and last weekend I built the system biggrin.gif

Pictures: http://imgur.com/a/P7LoG

The hardware:

Intel i5 4670K
ASRock Z87E-ITX
NVIDIA GTX 770 Reference
Corsair Vengeance LP 8GB
Silverstone Strider Gold 450W

Still need to get an SSD, but I can wait on a good deal for that.


The experience was very positive with this case, it's SOLID! Although cable management presented it's issues, it was easier than I expected. I still have to do a better work, but that will be next weekend. I'm thinking of getting the PP05-E kit, but not until I give it another try with the cables bundled with the PSU. The 8-pin CPU placement in the Z87E-ITX is the only thing I didn't liked, horrible placement!

The good thing about the Z87E-ITX is the CPU location, NT06 or the Noctua NH-L12 should fit without problems.

Temperatures in the case are excellent, the positive pressure blows the hot air out from every corner in the case, keeping it cool.
Stress testing the CPU with Prime95 ramps up the temperature to 80c; however the rest of the case stays cool, which is great. I did not run Prime95 for too long since I only have the Intel stock cooler for now.

The only bad thing about using the GTX with the reference cooler is that it will go up to the 70c and 80c in no time. With Unigine heaven 1.0, it takes about three minutes to go all the way to 80c (I still have to test it with games). The rest of the case stays pretty cool considering the temperatures of the GPU, but the area around the exhaust of the card in the back of the case gets very hot. SSD's / HDD's above the card will definitely take the heat. I am only using one fan in the GPU area, I don't know if another one would do a big difference with the blower cooler, although I'm not so sure it will.

I got the reference card at a great price ($250), so that's why I went with that one, although after testing I believe that a card like the EVGA with ACX and two high performance fans paired with it should give the best temperatures possible for an air cooler.

Comments, suggestions or corrections are expected biggrin.gif

As soon as I am ready to build it i will post pictures here on this thread but not before silverstone makes a more powerful PSU - waiting for the 600W to appear... like they promised.

Indeed i had to remove the fans but the inno3d has temps at idle about 29-31C and stressed 61C. Additionally like you wrote - the case has some opening for the air to flow sideways out SO IT WILL HELP.

If you have problems with cable management try the PP05-E and they also have very slim SATA cables (although I am not entirely sure because I have yet to install everything probably end of april).

Have a nice game and a cool rig everyone!! thumb.gif

Anyone more savy on this case than me want to chime in on something?

As I am currently the only "Red Tide" person with aspirations of this case, can someone look at the Gigabyte A88XN-Wifi, and tell me if the NT06-PRO will fit? From my picture dead reckoning, I believe that it will as there seems to be a good quarter of an inch difference in socket placement than the Z77E-ITX because the orientation of the socket is different. The A88X is running north/south in relation to the IO/RAM slots, whereas the Z77 is east/west.

Maybe a certain shop owner has one of these boards, and can dry fit them as the PCI slot seems to be the issue.

Actually, I think the PCIe slot is going to be a problem AND so will the psu if you use the nt06. Since the CPU slot is so much farther to the side opposite the IO ports. We don't carry much in the way of AMD boards and CPUs because they don't sell well for us. We have some FM2 and AM3+ boards and CPUs, but I wouldn't carry the FM2A88XN-wifi in stock, first because it's a gigabyte, and we have had serious QC issues with them, and second, it's an ITX AMD board, it would never sell in my store. Even the customer reviews on the board aren't that great.

Please don't think I'm talking down on you or your choice of hardware! But from a retailer who's been running the store in the same location for the last almost 8 years, I know what does and doesn't sell well for our local client base.
