i wont do that unless it is my final choice tongue.gif

but thanks for the info any way

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA59T1R00547

what do you think of this one ?

combine this with noctua industrial 3000 rpm 120mm could be the best choise

it is also rated for 130w and have 6 pipes

only problem it ships from china and will take some time

is there any better choice ?

Looks pretty solid based on the reviews...and it fits the ML08...two reviewers have that same case...

Is it possible to put a 7mm or a 9.5mm 2.5" HDD in the GPU chamber when the GPU is long (behind the GPU)?
I had the case open so I checked. There is less than 10mm of space between the back of the chamber and the back of the GPU, even less space if the GPU has a backplate. I would not recommend putting an SSD directly behind the GPU if not at the least for cooling concerns, but also the likelihood of GPU parts directly resting on the SSD or the SSD pushing/warping the GPU. You might be able to stick an SSD behind the PSU in the little pocket on the same side as the GPU, but again, tight fit.

Hi SFFPC owners,

I'm planning to build a rig of my own and wanted to ask some advice from experienced builders.
New to the whole building game, having held back posting asking for awhile as the more I read this thread the more my build changes and I have to double check things to make sure they fit well.

I've got 2 build drafts, one before I learnt about this thread and after:
Before: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/TGpK3F
After: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/8NrMvV

If you could look at the 'After' build and just offer feedback, I'd more than appreciate that.

But being new, if possible, I'd also like some direction towards the motivations behind my changes - especially if they're incorrect. I'll try to keep them short though!
So here goes:
-[ CPU Cooler] C1 to PH-TC12LS + Noctua NF-F12 Industrial: Chose the C1 cause worrying about temps; realised I'm not overclocking, still worried; cheaper alternative combination found (cheaper as I can order from Amazon, while the C1 here is ~$89); gut feeling: temps won't be too bad.

- [MB] B150i to H110i: Stared at spec sheet, found barely any difference (aside from gaming features, ramdisk and custom hotkeys); Interestingly spreadsheet stated PCI-E 3.0, when h110, h170, z170 comparison articles show Gen 2.0. Hopefully MSI page is right? Else I'll consider reverting back to the B150i.

- [GPU] + [Fans] RX 470: Saw benchmarks showing not too shabby performance with lower heat output; Assumed quieter fans would suffice; Need 1-to-2 PWM splitter (hopefully under the voltage limit - read about that somewhere in the thread but couldn't find much details on limits).

- [PSU] Silverstone to Corsair: Read incidents of the former's being louder than the latter; Making a decision after more research.

- [Accessories] PWM Splitter for case fans, data (SATA?) and power cable for transferred 2.5" HDD (reusing HDD from dead gaming laptop), thermal compound(idk).

Thanks for taking the time to read this!

tl;dr: 'Before' and 'After' build drafts. Keep going or turn back?

Note: From Singapore, so prices here are higher than the exchange rate equivalents. Not sure if this is important to point out.

Ram: You can get a G.Skill 3000 Mhz kit for less than that corsair 2133 Mhz kit here.

Hard Drive: Right now you can get a 1 TB WD Black drive for less than the 750 GB drive here. Or an HGST Travelstar 1 TB 7,200 RPM for even less here.
BAM!

I was going to say that the heat spreader on g.skill memory kits don't mix well with ITX boards/low profile heatsinks, but then I clicked on your link...Darn, too bad that memory was not available when I put my computer together. I rather like G.skill but went with the Corsair DDR4 3000 kit because of the heatspreader.

I'll be picking up 16gb of ddr4 hopefully easily overclocked to 3200 or faster... I'm planning on removing the heatsink from them. It'll be close with my Silverstone nt06-pro cooler. Worse comes to worst I can actually bend the cooler to make it fit the ram...it I could clip out the area of the heatsink for the ram. We shall see.

with the standard profile heat spreaders you should not actually have to remove them, let alone bend them. It's pretty tight with my Scythe Big Shuriken 2, but everything fits without any arguments or cursing.

Specs:

i7-6700k, 4.5GHz
EVGA GTX 780 (Until I can get a 1080 or 1070)
Gigabyte GA-Z170N-Gaming 5
Corsair SF600
2x8GB Corsair LPX DDR4-3000
Scythe Big Shuriken 2

Really enjoyed this build, I removed the optical drive holder as other have done to fit my 2TB seagate drive in, which was a great decision. With the extra SSD I have lying around and the M.2 slot, it's possible that in the future I may have FIVE drives in this tiny system.

I was able to get the CPU to 4.5 GHz easily @ 1.3v, and the temps stayed well below 80c in Aida 64 and Realbench, not bad for a low-profile cooler. Perhaps later I'll try to push it further, but for now I am quite happy with the results.

I have one question though: My 780 runs hot, really HOT. I have 1 1080p screen, one 1440p, and one 4k connected, so I know it has to work hard even at idle to drive all those pixels. However, this card is idling at 70c, and it pushes into the high 80s under load. In my previous system, it wasn't much better, even with better case airflow. Is it possible that redoing the thermal paste on this card would make a significant difference?

Just ordered a Gigabyte G1 GTX 1080, so nvm.

Anybody know how well non-blower style coolers perform in the ML08 / RVZ02?


Nice build! So how are your temps with the blowerstyle 1080? I still don't know if it is best to opt in for a blowerstyle or open fan card (going for a 1060 though) I currently have the MSI afterburner 760 at 150w . It is a dual fanned model and runs too hot. It throttles so I had to set a more aggresive fan curve to just keep it out of throttling. Do you experience a blowerstyle being any better?

Does this also apply on the ML08-B model? I do not know if I should go for a 1060 with a blowerstyle or open cooler solution. I have an MSI afterburner 760 dual fanned open GPU in it currently and it runs throttling hot.

Thanks.
