Another member here Shwoking did a lot of testing with various coolers and finally settled on the C1. Both shwoking and I selected the Asrock Fatal1ty z170 due to its features and how well it works in these cases.The C1 and Asrock Fatal1ty z170 is a match made in heaven as well as providing awesome cooling.

Note: Be aware the C1 comes with a 15mm fan. The work around, as developed by Shwoking... was to swap it out with a Cryorig XF140, 25mm x 140mm fan with 120mm mounting holes) and attaching it to the case cover grill rather than to the Cryorig C1 heatsink. It worked for him so I went the same route. Works great. Not saying its the only solution... just something to consider.

Here's a pic posted by shwoking. It shows the C1 cooler mounted on a Asrock Fatal1ty z170 and the 25mm fan mounted on the case cover. I have 24 photos of my build loaded in the gallery but none of them showing the C1 set up like this pic from Shwoking.


I considered the big shuriken as well as the C1; both are excellent choices. It's already built: I'll have pics posted when i get home from my business trip ; in Nashville right now.

Hello Raven RVZ01/02 ML07/08 FTZ01 enthusiasts!

New here, my very first post. Thanks to Melvin Gimp thumb.gif.
I have read all posts till page 345, but cannot continue, too much!!!

I am thinking of building the following system:

What i already have
* I7-6700K
* Sapphire R9 Fury Nitro Tri-X OC
* 16 GB DDR4 Vengeance LPX 3000Mhz
* 512GB M.2 SSD Samsung 950 Pro
* 512GB 850 Evo SSD
* 750W Corsair PSU ATX maybe adapt, cut and resolder the cables to size??
* Raven RVZ01 Black

To decide

* Asus Z170i pro gaming mATX
* Corsair H55 ! - I want to try AIO, been with air coolers since ZX Spectrum, need to try something different! typer.gif
* 500W PSU SX500-LG or 600W SFX SX600-G - Which has been more reliable, are they worth it?
* some blu ray optical drive - cant find any here in Switzerland for sale! doh.gif
* 120x25mm fans !! be quiet, noise blocker, Noctua....
* One 120mm x 120mm x 15mm fan to the radiator....What are you using guys? Silent, but with pressure!! .

Please help me decide on these last details, give me your inputs!!

You are making this so much harder than it needs to be!!
All the ITX boards with the Z170 chipset are good, Asrock, Gigabyte, Asus and MSI

MSI and ASUS have gaming variants with USB 3.1
Other than that the most significant differences are the price and colors.

There are a few differences the gigabyte gaming board uses killer nic chip, the asrock puts the m.2 port on the back of the motherboard, the asus impact doesn't have an m.2 port but a u.2 port, the msi one doesn't have as good of an audio solution compared to the impact.

They all have trade offs. If I were picking an mitx z170 board it would be between the msi and asrock. Mostly because of the intel nic chips used(less to deal with in the long run) and they both have m.2 ports.

The gigabyte z170n-wifi has dual intel gigabit nics

And yes they all have tradeoffs, this has been said before but what computer components dont?

Hi,

I've recently bought the RVZ02. Bought myself a WD Green 2.5" 2TB but found that it doesn't fit. Can't see anywhere on the Silverstone/Raven website that says that it can only handle 2.5" HDD up to 10mm in height.

Am I missing something, or is this just the case and i'll have to buy a 1TB drive or a Seagate 2TB? All WD above 1TD are 15mm in height.

"Drive Bay: External - Slim optical 12.7mm or 9.5mm x 1 (9.5mm compatibility limited to tray type), Internal - 2.5” x 2 (one additional 3.5” or 2.5” space depending on expansion card installed) "

3.5" drives only fit if you have a short GPU and they go in the GPU side of the case
