Yeah just have to spray it once a week, having it behind the case makes it harder to clean as you have to take it off...

Finished my FTZ01 build the other day, but my temps seem a bit high. With ambient at 24.5, my stock 6700k is idling in the mid 40s. Is that normal or high? I have a feeling I either used too much thermal paste, or screwed it up while getting the heatsink adjusted properly.

very high! Is the CPU downclocking? It should downclock to 800MHz when idle. Mine idles around 24-25C but again mine is delided...

Yeah even in the ML08 I idle in the low 30s on average (something like 28c-34c), I'd double check that the heatsink is properly screwed down, and if it is maybe redoing the thermal paste.

Excessive thermal paste won't give you high temps, too little will give you high temps...


the number one reason for high temps is a poorly seated heat sink (not sitting flat with the chip), number 2 is bad air flow

Good call! My power plan was set to Max Performance, so it was staying at 4000-4200 the entire time. Idling in the upper 20s, low 30s (ambient 22) after setting it to Balanced. 15 mins of FFT in Prime95 v26.6 got a max temp of 86.

I tried reading through the thread but couldn't find anyone actually doing it.

Had a Corsair H55 laying around and was wondering if I could mount it into my ML08 Case through the side panel ventilation holes over the CPU. If too tall, maybe using a slim fan would help?

Any advice would be really appreciated! Thanks!

No one has done it because its impossible.
The clearance of pump+Fan+radiator is more than the ~65mm clearance you have in the case. What you can do is mount one alongside the GPU if you use a short (MITX branded) PCB.
Silverstone have a slim rad, but even that is too short since the vent above the mobo will requiire the fan, rad and pump to overlap each other

I'm really impressed with the builds in this thread and fully intend to have my own build in the not too distant future.

I've been planning things out and have a few questions:

Do I wait for Kaby Lake and the 1080ti, or just go with Skylake and 1070/1080 and upgrade sooner? I'm directing this question primarily at those who built their PCs around the time of the last generational refresh. This has more to do with part availability than anything else. If Kaby Lake cpus and z270 motherboards are going to be hard to find or buggy at launch, then I would be more inclined to get the parts cheap as they make room for the new hardware. On the other hand, Kaby Lake is moving to a new CPU socket so I wouldn't really have an upgrade path going forwards, which isn't really that big of a deal since I would likely replace the CPU and motherboard at the same time anyways.

I would assume that no matter what happens the 1080ti is going to be a bit hard to find for at least a few months after launch since so many people are looking forwards to it.

Right now I'm leaning more towards building a PC sooner using slightly older parts, both because I'll likely get more for my money, and the Skylake platform and 1070/1080 drivers are fairly mature at this point without being so old as to be obsolete.

My next question is what is the best CPU cooling setup that I can use in an FTZ-01 with the Asus Z170-I pro gaming if I want to have room for both a 3.5" hdd and an optical drive? I've seen several recommendations, but I've also noticed that some of them block the use of the HDD and ODD. Here's a preliminary parts list I've put together: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/4tcPJV. Note that I've intentionally omitted the CPU cooler for now.

I would prefer a quieter system over absolute max performance, but that seems to be how just about everyone tends to build these types of systems anyways.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I have finally had the chance to put together everything into my RVZ01. I've bought and installed everything except a video card.
Looking at how small and cramped this case is, I was getting a bit worried about temperatures if I were to get a decent video card. I had the gtx 1070 in mind.

I noticed that they're coming out with new 'hybrid' models (e.g. the evga gtx 1070 hybrid) that come with a built-in water cooler. I've never ventured into water cooling before.
Has anyone looked into these? While on paper it sounds like a good idea, given that there isn't much space to put the radiator in the case, I was worried the heat generated by the radiator wouldn't be expelled properly, resulting in the GPU being well-cooled but the rest of the system warmer.

I've seen a few builds on here that have gone for the regular gtx 1070. Any issues with temperatures?

I'd ideally want to use this case in the horizontal position so ventilation would be tricky.

Thanks!
