Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 608

post #6071 of 7141
Alright guys, so I'm about to pull the trigger on a new build and I'm very interested in doing an ITX build in the Silverstone ML08B-H. What I'm wondering though, is what components to buy.

Here is the list of parts I'm thinking of:

Intel i5 6600k / i7 6700k
Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 Mobo
2 x 8GB DDR4
Samsung 950 Pro 256GB NVMe M.2 SSD
1 TB 2.5" HDD
Corsair SF 450 PSU
MSI Gaming X GTX 1080

What I need to know is, what CPU cooler should I get? I've been looking at the Noctua NH-L9I, but I know nothing about SFF CPU coolers.

Also, will the SF450 be a good enough PSU for this build?

And finally, the MSI GTX 1080 is a BIG card, but it is dual slot. Does the ML08B have enough height clearance to accommodate it?

My config is older (i5 3470), the tdp is a bit lower than your i5 6600k (71vs90) but i don't think it matter a lot, my config work fine with the 450w PSU, if you want to OC i don't know.

I have a RVZ01 and a 1080GTX FE, the card is not that big, it's smaller than my previous 960GTX. I have upgrade my 2 bottom fans to 25mm thickness with the extra empty space.

The ML08 has enough place for the 1080gtx since it's up to 13 inch.

The MSI Gaming X GTX 1080 is quite a bit bigger than the reference 1080. Not in length, but in height from the PCIe connector to the top of the card. I just want to be sure that it will fit within the height limitations of the ML08B.

I know, that's why I'm asking. I'm not going to buy a Founder's Edition though. Reference cards are garbage when it comes to cooling and noise, as I have learned these past 2 years with my 780. If the MSI won't fit I'll just get an EVGA or some other smaller model.

That cooler is not the best to get for your CPU, I think it usually comes last in most of the SFF cooler tests I have seen.
Best bet is to get something like the Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B but that depends on the ram height, can't be more then 40mm with that cooler but it is one of the best SFF coolers you can get

So I've been looking at different reviews and it looks like the scythe and Silverstone nt06-pro are pretty darn close. Looks like some have the nt06-pro edging out the shrunkin 2. Mine has been great for me with my 4.5ghz overclocked 2500k. Handles the temps just fine. But granted I lapped the heatsink and am using clu thermal paste...

After reading some reviews I decided to go with the Cryorig C7. I know it may not be the absolute best performer, but it's price is fantastic and I'm not looking into heavy overclocking anyways with this build.

Is there a reason why you decided on that cooler when it's way smaller than what your case can handle?

For RVZ02, I cant choose between the Thermalright AXP-100 Muscle and Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B cooler. Anyone with more knowledge on this?
