I think AXP-100 and NH-L12 for sure are safe bets, one being cheaper than the other. We just need to get a Zalaman owner here to offer their opinion.


Hehe that's part of the excitement! lol!

I will think about getting the ITX30. Since CaptZombie will get the AXP-100 we can do comparisons smile.gif

The AXP-100 is awesome and has a great fan. Maybe the ITX30 could use a fan with better cfm and who knows... all that copper starts making miracles lol.

That is only if I find it near or the same price of the AXP-100. An AXP-100 under $40 is an EXCELLENT price!

Hmm, it could be, but probably not. I mean, you should be able to mount it without interfering with anything in the board.

You could measure the distance between the CPU socket on your board and the 119mm of the AXP-100, just to be sure smile.gif

For me, it's down to the NH-L12 vs AXP-100. I'd go NH-L12 if I could just confirm it will fit my board (Z87E-ITX).

Can you confirm it's really around 90mm?

It fits on the Z87E-ITX like this:

Hard to do photo with close case but i do this with another fan and open. Better if i say is ~86

The way the guy placed it covers the PCI-e slot on an H61 board. I've seen other posts say the AXP-100 will fit without covering the PCI-e slot on a ASrock Z77e-i and the Z87e-i. I think you will be ok with the AXP-100.

Linus in his video was also using a Phanteks cooler.

I personally think this case has some design flaws in the cooler dept. If this case was just an inch or two taller it would solve a lot of issues with water and air cooling.

Again which was my issues earlier, why not release a new air cooler Silverstone? The NT06-mini or something that is smaller in size that would fit your HTPC cases plus this case since you are making a big push into the Steambox market.

I wish the rep Silverstone could come on here and answer some of these questions for us.

So are those the fans that come with the case? You have one on the NH-l12 and one on the side panel, they are both set to intake? Do they not make noise together like that? It doesnt look like the case could even close like that!

What did you put under the GPU if you are using the 2 15MM fans that came with the case?

I put this second fun only for foto i no use this silverstone 120x15 mm, i use noctua 120x25mm on botom case and 1 silverstone. U must back and look my photos in this post.

OK so you do NOT have a fan mounted on top of the Noctura, you just used it for the photo to Show. In the background I see the lid, but it look like you DO have the 15MM attached on it, so it would sit above the Noctura?

You then took the 25MM Noctura fan and put it at the bottom of the case. This did not touch or get in the way for you GPU?

I think this is the cooler to get, at least for me. Nobody seems to sell the AXP in Canada, I have found it online on ebay for about 58USD (which is about 66 CDN). The noctura is $71 on newegg canada with $12 shipping. I might be able to ***** at customer service enough and get a free shipping coupon or something after I RMA the geminII

Will be great to see when Capt Zombie gets his AXP-100 and what his numbers are in this case.

So I would think we look at it like this:

AXP-100: cooler to get to replace stock and want quiet. OC'ing maybe not the best idea in this setup, but can use case 15MM side/top case fan and price is decent.

Noctura-NH-lL12: Premium cooling, Very quiet with great best temps and can OC. You need to remove the top 25MM fan it comes with, but you can still use the included 15MM side/top fan of the raven. (bonus of being able to use the removed 25MM in the GPU area.)

3rd choice seems to be tossup of Zalaman Quiet or ITX30 and even one vote (from this thread) for the GeminII. Not for OC'ing but to replace stock fan, and all of which are low enough to be able to use the side/top 15MM case fan...

Lower profile/normal sized ram is probably best and installed first to avoid cursing later thumb.gif

My system have 3 fans and Noctua L12 cooler

1. 92mm x 25mm Noctua stick to cooler
2. 120mm x 15mm Silverstone (adapter 5V) stick to top cover
3 120mm x 25mm Noctua stick to botom case (look manual there is 32mm free space) 5 mm free space left. That was one of reason why i buy NH-l12 this fan is perfect for case botom GPU cooling area (silverston is noisy).
