I will get myself those case fans then if the stock ones are not enough with my build.

I am actually slightly unsure on the case itself now. The RV0Z1-E can use ATX power supplies and I have to admit they are almost less than half the price of the 600w SFX one. Maybe I should that case then, would you say it's a better choice then? I am not sure I would care about the hdd 3.5" compared to 2.5" but at the same time I don't even know if I understand this whole thing correctly (I am a console peasant trying to make the switch to PC gaming, learning as I go biggrin.gif)

Thank you smile.gif
A good quality 150mm long ATX PSU won't be a cheap option but you would get a higher wattage PSU for the money. PSUs are meant to work best at 50% power usage, so if you look at the wattage needs of the components, add them up and double it. So if GPU+CPU+SSD+Motherboard+RAM = 400Watts then x2 = 800Watt PSU but a good gold 500Watt will still do the job.

Thank you for the detailed answer! At this point I guess weight is the most important thing since it's for traveling, a normal atx while being about half the price is also 1kg heavier from what I have seen online, therefore I think I will stick with the corsair sfx 600w for portability's sake, do you think it makes sense?

Regarding the memory should I go for LP or non LP? They cost about the same but I want to go non-LP cause they dissipate heat better (from what I understood). I'm just concerned with the fan getting in the way (the pallas).

Again thank you so much for the help! I am so close to ordering everything !

**Start RANT ** OK, here is where I get a bit controversial, Heat spreaders on ram is the biggest myth in PC building, they do noting to cool the ram and a few years ago a tech website found that the temps for ram went up with heat spreaders attached compared with them off. My ram has them removed and they don't get warm at all because they have air flow around them as they are under the cooler. **End RANT** smile.gif

To answer your question best to get LP ram as anything over 40mm will hit most coolers out there that are any good at cooling in the RVZ01 case

I can happy report back that the RVZ01 is perfect for the 1080GTX FE, there is even place for 2x120x120x25mm fan on the bottom. The 450W psu is also doing fine.

I'm using a liquid cooling solution personnaly without LP ram

Today, I'm demoing Oculus Rift on my ML08 rig at work, and I had to transport it... by public transit!

I was able to carry the Rift in its box and the PC both by their handles. Also, carried a backpack with my daily necessities plus a few extra cables and adapters for the occasion. This is my first portability test... and dear god, the ML08-H handle is just so damned uncomfortable to hold. I'm thinking about wrapping in with cord or rubber dip.

About to get a new rig and almost set on most of components:
EVGA GeForce GTX1080 Founders Edition
i7-6700K
Silverstone SST-ML08B
Corsair SF600 600 Watt
Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 16GB DDR4
Gigabyte Z170N gaming 5

But thinking which cooler could be the best for the case from these three available?
Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B
Thermalright AXP-100 Muscle
Silverstone SST-AR06 Argon

Weird we are thinking of the same build LOL. Does anyone know if the 60mm tall Prolimatech Samuel 17 w/ Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 PWM Fan fits? Looking to install a 6700k with mild overclock.

I need some advice on CPU cooler configuration.

This is my part list (Note the GPU is a placeholder for a Strix 1070): http://pcpartpicker.com/list/Nzbq6h

I have a AXP-100R and a Gentle Typhoon for the CPU. Additionally, I can/will commission a 3D printed shroud for my cooling solution. The question becomes: what would be the optimal layout theoretically? Target is noise/performance balance.

The obvious solution is to use the Typhoon as a case fan and the cooler fan on the cooler without a joining shroud.

Option 2 is to join the paired fans with a shroud.

Option 3 is to use the Typhoon (or cooler fan) as the sole fan on the case and duct it to the sink avoiding fan interference. Not sure if the Typhoon has PWM though.

I don't really want to run the Typhoon on the sink and duct it to the vent because this system is intended to fly as a carry-on. As a consequence, I would rather minimize torque on the motherboard. The vent offset complicates any thoughts of supporting the heat-sink with the wall.

GPU will run the stock case fans until I find them deficient.
