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 ML08 has the same internal layout as the RVZ02, just with a different exterior plastic casing. I don't know how the handle attaches/detaches, but I dont think it would prevent a large amount of dust from getting in your computer. I would say just open up the case and blast it with compressed air every few months or so to clean off dust. I think the layout is pretty simple that it won't take more than a couple of minutes to clean.

People on the forums have stated that the Zalman 8900 has a few millimeters of clearance on the windowless filtered version of the RVZ02 exterior, and around a millimeter with the windowed version. I'm thinking should be fine for mild to moderate overclocking on a 4690K. The 8900 comes with a small pack of thermal grease so you dont need to buy more

I dont think the NH-L12 will fit the ML08. The case has 58mm of CPU cooler clearance, and the NH-L12 needs 66mm without the top fan. According to this review, the 8900 and NH-L12 have the same performance: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/zalman-cnps8900-extreme-cpu-cooler-review/6/

As for the GPU, I have an MSI GTX 970 in mine and it runs mid 60's to low 70's while gaming. Any recent NVidia card seems to do fine thermally with just fresh air intake + no additional GPU fans. Add on a few degrees C for the filtered version.

Can you please elaborate on that?
Is the rvz02 with the clear plastic better at cooling than the all black version?
Why is that?

Cheers!

Well i tried both. And while both still hit high temps in my situation, the windowed version took way longer to get there. As for why im guessing the extra ventilation. The windowed kit has aroynd 1/4 to 1/3 more vent holes plus no filters.

Hi there!

I'm new here and I've built myself a little FTZ01 rig. Spent some time lurking before I went ahead with the build so it's my pleasure to share it with you helpful people.

GPU is the EVGA 980ti SC running at 1459mhz core 3900mhz mem.

I've installed the 4790k cpu running stock on the Asus Z971-plus Motherboard. This is cooled by the H80i GT water cooler and in quiet mode is completely silent, I'm very impressed. Idle's temps are mid 20's and gaming temps are high 40's, low 50's.

I quickly tried overclocking the 4790k and managed 4.8ghz with a 48 multiplier @1.375v, didnt streets test but did some gaming and ran valley benchmark which all ran stable for the short time I tried. Valley benchmark with Max 1920x1080 settings gained me 105fps average at 4.8ghz compared to 100fps at stock speeds.

Now the installation of the H80i GT is pretty retro looking as I went for the external mounting. I managed to fit one of the H80i fans on the inside of the case, screwed through the case lid clamping the radiator to the lid itself.

Please check out the pic and let me know what you think. I really love the retro mod look of it but I know it's not to everyone's taste.

Cheers.

Interesting cooling choice here.
Could you post a picture of the back to show us how you manage to insert those tubes inside.

Look mate, i have the impact vii, I tried the shuriken big 2, ar06 and the zalman quiet, the shuriken and the zalman quiet were extremly difficult to install and once i did the cooling performance was not that great, also with th zalman and shuriken big one of my ram slots were kindof pushed down on, ar06 installed perfectly however cooling performance was horrible, i got about 75 degrees and my 4690k wasnt even overclocked, so then i did a bit more research and bought the Thermalright AXP-100r, It was perfect looked good, very easy to install and had enough ram clearance for my corsair lp ram. The cooling performance was perfect and i reached 4.2ghz overclock with my 4690k and only reached 76 degrees. I would greatly recommend the axp 100r for the asus maximus vii, perfect for the rvz02 since its only 58mm

Anyone tried a TD03 slim AIO on the rvz01? If it could fit would it provide better cooling against something like the nt06 or the ar06?

Cheers

I agree the Zalman is a pig to install on the VII impact because of the location of the bolts, on mine however with low profile ballistix ram the cooler only just touches the heat spreader, no cooling issues with my 4609K yet, but still to start overclocking it (i did also use Arctic MX-2 not the supplied 'grease')

Do you think where the shuriken and the zalman coolera were sitting on your ram that it wasnt letting them set properly?
