It's going to be difficult finding a good ITX mobo for LGA 1155. I got lucky and bought a Asrock Z77e. The asking price was $249.00, I got it for $149.00 shipped. (Contact the seller and see if he'll work with you regarding price)

The 2500k has a TDP of 95w. I wouldn't recommend the NH-L9i if you plan of overclocking.
Quote:
Caution: The NH-L9i is a highly-compact low-profile quiet cooler designed for use in small form factor cases and HTPC environments. While it provides first rate performance in its class, it is not suitable for overclocking and should be used with care on CPUs with more than 65W TDP (Thermal Design Power). Please consult our TDP guidelines to find out whether the NH-L9i is recommended for your CPU.

Here's a Gigabyte Technology GA-H61N-USB3 and a ASRock Z77E-ITX. I know the Asrock can handle a decent OC. I'm not too sure about the Gigabyte mobo? But for the price, it's worth looking into.

I cant say anything about the silverstone coolers, but I bought a scythe big shuriken 2 rev b, should come around next week.

Thanks, also interested in the Scythe big shuriken 2 rev b now that I hear the Noctua isn't that good. But the Shuriken is really thin, can it really cool a 2500k at say 4Ghz?

Anyone else have any suggestions?

The Asrock looks great but that price... Seems very hard to find a lga1155 mini itx board. :/

Btw, is the SilverStone SST-SX500-LG PSU a good choice to go with a ML08? System might have a gtx970 in the future. Heard the 600 had some problems.

Contact the seller and negotiate the price. The Asrock Z77e mobo that I recently purchased from ebay was selling for $249.99. I told him that the motherboard on release date was only $149.99~. I asked him why he would mark it up that high for a used motherboard. He agreed and accepted my offer of $149.99, shipped. The worse they can do is decline your offer.

Yes, that psu should be more than enough for a 2500k and a gtx970. I'll be using the same PSU for my 980Ti and 2700k itx build.

post #5304 of 7096
Greetings, been reading this thread for awhile now, first time to post.

I'm interested in down-sizing from my current PC, one that uses a CoolerMaster Elite 130, to the RVZ02. Ever since I saw the Falcon Northwest Tiki, I wanted one of my own, and I'm very much interested in the RVZ02 with Filters (dust is a problem in the Philippines).

My current specs are:
  • Case: CoolerMaster Elite 130
  • MoBo: Asus H87I-Plus Mini-ITX
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 4790
  • CPU Cooler: Stock
  • RAM: 2 x G.Skill RipJaws DDR3 8gb, for a total of 16gb
  • PSU: Seasonic S12-II 520w Bronze
  • SSD: 1 x Samsung Evo 850 128gb for the OS, plus I'm also looking for a cheaper, slower SSD for games / apps directory
  • HDD: WD Green 4TB 5400rpm, and failing the above, I'm also looking for a 1TB 2.5 7200rpm HDD for games / apps directory
  • ODD: Asus DVD Burner
  • GPU: None yet

Nothing too fancy. Couple of things to note here.
  1. This will be used as a relatively high-end Steam machine / media player.
  2. Waiting for next-gen GPUs to arrive. Since I'm targeting the GTX 1070, maybe we can use the GTX 970 as a reference for heat.
  3. Will not be overclocking anything (yes, I know I'm on Overclock.net, I'm sorry).
  4. Keeping the 4TB HDD is crucial.
  5. Will be getting a slim-ODD for this - don't care much for downloading GBs of game files over the net.

With that out of the way, I have some questions. Please bear with me, these are gonna be long and tl;dr material:

I read a while back that the RVZ02 will be ditching the HDD bays. I watched the YouTube Video, but I could not see any major change between the RVZ02 as is, and whatever it is they decide to call the new RVZ02. Was LinusTechTips mistaken? The ability to keep the 4TB HDD is a major factor here, and since I'm not too fond of the RVZ01 and its derivatives, if it could not fit, I'll be staying in my Elite 130.

The 3.5-less RVZ02 was shown at CES 2016. When will it arrive, and/or is there any part number or so that will help me avoid it, when ordering online from Amazon? Iirc there was a Silverstone rep here, perhaps he can help, if it's not too much to ask.

I can't really pull the trigger and buy one now just to be safe because: I'm waiting on the next-gen GPUs, and hopefully, the mini-versions of them, so I could mount the HDD. Failing that, I've seen a mod here where one of the SSD trays was pulled (hammered?) out to make room for the HDD and perhaps I could follow that, but with space for only two drives on that side, the "games" SSD will still have to go somewhere, and it will still likely be the GPU chamber.

So the other question is, with the GPU of ANY (reasonable) length in the GPU chamber, is an SSD thin enough to go underside it? And how will the SSD tolerate the heat?

Finally, a question you all know:

Given my spec above, how do you think my system will go? Of course, I'll be replacing the ATX PSU with the Silverstone SFX-L 500w one, and I'll be saying goodbye to the ODD as well, but using a GTX 970 as an imaginary reference GPU, how will the rest of my system run? Will it burn brighter than the sun, or be fine, temp-wise?

Thanks!

I've found a retailer selling this http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4463#ov

How does that look? What motherboard are you using?

If you do not plan on OC'ing your cpu and not getting a GTX970 (only supports PCIe x4) in the near future, then yes, get the motherboard. I'm currently rocking my sig rig. But I have a Asrock Z77e ITX ready to go into a FTZ01s.

I'd recommended this, Gigabyte Technology GA-H61N-USB3. The price is right and you can get a slight OC.

Well from what I have read, the Big shuriken is one of the best that can fit in that small case.

If you are interested: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/low-profile-heat-sink-mini-itx,3639.html

When mine arrives I can tell you if it can manage my i7 6700k on 4,4 Ghz. Right now I just limited it to 3,8 Ghz to keep it cool.

Time for some exciting things!!

Just finished my project for the RVZ02 cooling mod
So basically I isolated the problem not with enough airflow, but all the hot air in the GPU compartment had nowhere to go!

Silverstone suffered a massive rush of **** to the brain and put the exhaust vents on the wrong side of the top panel, so I went ahead and made myself a new one.
Luckily I have access to a laser cutter and could do this fairly neatly.

If there is enough interest I could maybe do some orders.

Bought 3 server grade fans and they work like a charm, GPU temps down max. 25 degrees when I'm gaming!!




post #5309 of 7096
Well just finished my build and windows 10 is back on it smile.gif



Had to cut off one of the tabs on the CPU bracket as it hit one of the screws under the motherboard




Very happy with the Temps in the case, using the slim fans that came with the RVZ01 for the GPU intake and a Scythe 1200rpm slim fan over the CPU.

In Rise of the tomb raider get 55c on the CPU and 78c on the GPU (High settings)

With Rainbow Six Siege get 58c on the CPU and 75C on the GPU (very High settings)

Not tested anything else yet, Temps are almost the same as my old case (NZXT 440 with Kraken X41 AIO coolers on the CPU and GPU)

System Specs :-

RVZ01 Case
Gigabyte Z97N-Gaming 5 Motherboard
16GB G skill 2400 DDR3
2x 250GB SSDs
i7 4790k (under volted to 1.05v, No Boost, No Hyper threading) @ 4Ghz
Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X
500W Silverstone PSU

Next upgrade is a R9 Fury NANO, Why? Smaller than the 290, 100W less power use than the 290, faster than the 290, only 1 8 pin needed and with the latest price drop it's now £349 in the UK which is £50-70 cheaper than a normal Fury and only about 1fps slower in 90% of games. (also got a freesync monitor so need to stay with AMD)

Luckily I have access to a laser cutter and could do this fairly neatly.

If there is enough interest I could maybe do some orders.

Bought 3 server grade fans and they work like a charm, GPU temps down max. 25 degrees when I'm gaming!!

OMG, that is perfect!thumb.gif I sure wish @SilverStone had done this in the first place. I would love to get a panel with that kind of cooling on top. Too bad it wasn't painted black to match the rest though.
