I think you maybe didn't apply the thermal paste properly when you were changing motherboards or the cooler isn't getting proper contact with the cpu.
50 - 60 idle does seem really high for a stock 4790k (unless you live in an environment with ambient temps constantly 90F +)

I would suggest re-installing the cooler - clean the surfaces of the cpu and the cooler properly before re-installing as well.
Also, did you put too much thermal paste onto the cpu by any chance?
A lot of my friends who are new to building computers put an obscene amount of thermal paste and this can seriously detriment the thermal performance.
Just in case, as a reminder, you're only supposed to put a little bit of thermal paste in the center of the cpu (about the size of a rice grain.)

Scythe big shuriken 2 is a really good low profile cooler and it should definitely perform better than the Silverstone NT-06 (it will be a downgrade if you switch over - so don't do it.)
the missing rubber washer shouldn't really impact the thermal performance as well.

and processor throttling down to lower clock rates is pretty normal when the temperature gets really high - in order to protect the cpu.

Yea, but, for some reason, they decided to only added vents to half of the top part of the case and only on the side that's furthest away from the GPU. Just checked and both cases are like that. Kind of a weird choice, in my opinion. I felt like it would have allowed the GPU to breathe some more to just let the whole top of the panel be fully vented.

Either way, I'm eager to try out my 390.

In your opinion, is the 500W SFX-L or the 600W SFX PSU a better choice for this case and an i5-4690k + 390?

The vents are in the exact same place on both panels, windowed or not. There are vents above and directly next to the GPU. Sounds like you might be messing with the panels upside dowb or something, because you're mistaken in vent placement.

If you're running an overclock on either of those two, I'd recommend the 600w unit.

finally did the RVZ01 build on Saturday, so far so good!

GPU arrived earlier than expected, so that went in (obvs)
ALL the things!

just need to tidy it up at a later point, the SFX-L PSU really does eat more space than expected, so I could do with longer MoBo power cables than supplied to route them more tidily.
As tidy as I can get it atm - that sfx-l unit does take a bite out of space

The 8900 cooler also is a very tight fit on the VII Impact
Cooler just touches the raised components
Cooler just touches the raised components

but all ok so far and sooooo quiet
can't hear a thing, but atm just getting baselined

Only thing I wish I had done differently was to take more time to polish on her, maybe repainted the case, but overall came out well. And I really am starting to like the windows more except that I can see a shining red light from the mobo which kind of aggravates me. Now to wait and see if anyone has found a better cpu cooler to overclock skylake with.

Good mod, but I actually don't understand how heat goes smile.gif

So almost everyone is saying that 500W is not enough yet the most biggest number i've seen for 390 is 371W full load with power hungry i7 5960X
http://techreport.com/review/28612/asus-strix-radeon-r9-fury-graphics-card-reviewed/11

(one guy with seasonic 520W -don't remeber which model excatly said that 390 and overclocked i5 is going nice, no probs)

So even if you overclock 390 a little, and leave cpu at stock you'll have let's say ~400W so you have 20% left. I know little about power, and learned already that real efficiency is lower but 500-L SFX PSU is gold rated, it supposed to mean something.. It does have 40A on 12v rail, should be plenty

I'm still fighting in my head should I choose 390 over 970 but bigger PSU gonna be louder, whole thing may get hot, and I want build in raven or ml08

Thanks and i should have explained better. First I removed ssd mounts. I mounted my ssd below the mobo between two vent holes on bottom of case frame. I then cut two holes to access gpu chamber. I then mounted 2 x 120mm fans. I added my hdd where the optic drive should go. There was a bit of grinding and cutting also required to get all of them to fit in there. Next i cut a hole out of the side panel and added a grill. Theres little space from memory less than 1/8" between fan and grill. I set the fans to exhaust pulling air from the gpu chamber to push out the side of the case. I do wish i had tried a single fan first just to see what temps would have been but alas i was in a hurry and didnt take my time to really plan things out. But at least i accomplished what i wanted to, lower temps and keep an hdd in there.

Here are some pics of my FTZ01 build.

As you can see the Cryorig C1 fits with an ASrock Z170 Gaming Itx without the plastic shroud. Quiet tight but still ok.

Pre-build critique?

CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($229.99 @ SuperBiiz)
CPU Cooler: Zalman CNPS8900 Quiet CPU Cooler ($38.89 @ OutletPC)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97N-WIFI Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard ($100.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury Blue 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($39.89 @ OutletPC)
Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($163.89 @ OutletPC)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB Video Card (THIS MUST STAY, Purchased For $0.00)
Case: Silverstone ML08B-H HTPC Case ($84.50 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: Silverstone 600W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply ($117.99 @ Directron)
Other: Belkin Anti-Static Wrist Band With Adjustable Grounding ($5.48)

After reading a few pages of this thread, I'm not sure if the Zalman cooler will be able to handle the heat from my GPU. Should I buy the Noctua NH-L12 fan or thermal paste?
Should I be worried about dust in the unfiltered top and bottom vents? I could buy filter material and tape them to the inside of the case, or even get the windowed version of the case instead and then tape the middle of the case all the way around.
With the handled version of the case, how easy is it to remove/attach the handle? Does the case let in dust when the handle is not attached?
Is the internal layout the same as the Silverstone Raven RVZ02? Where is the slim optical drive on the ML08?

Thanks, there isn't much information on the case online, I guess due to how new it is.

The rvz02 and ml08 are the same. I love the zalman cooler and it would do well for your cpu. Id recommend the windowed version for that titan x though. Theres not a lot of cooling difference but there is some. Optic drive is near the top opposite the gpu.
