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).

Thats awesome, thanks for this! So the 15MM silverstones are noisy? hmm to bad. I will try with both, one on the top/side and the other below the GPU along with the Noctura 120x 25MM.

I cant remember, did you overclock? Why did you use the 5v adapter for the top fan? I though the noctura comes with a Y splitter for the CPU fan

In Newegg Canada, the Noctura is actually a few dollars cheaper than the NT06!

Man I really want the NH-L12. Seems the bottom fan is extremely quiet, even better than AXP-100. The question for mounting on Z87E-ITX in this case seems to be, will it clear at this area:

Note: This is an NCASE M1

I also wanted the NH-L12 but with my mobo I'd have to bend the heat pipes a little bit. I didn't want to mess with doing that.

Hoping the AXP is gd, if not I might look at swapping mobo out if it comes down to it.

I'm not a fan of a lot of noise so ill report back for sure how this fares. I'm using this setup in the living room as a gaming machine.

It should fit in the RVZ with that orientation as in the photo, in the RVZ there is about 12mm between the edge of the board and the side of the case there.......

I think this would be the best way to mount a NH-L12 on a Z87E-ITX



That is a different case, of course. All the pictures are on Hardforum thread.

I think the trick with this heatsink would be that the fan ends perfectly aligned with the case vent. Otherwise it could make some noise / not do the best cooling it can.

Edit: Having the case fan only throwing air to the heatsink would be a problem?... Maybe not, as Silverstone recommends NT06-Pro which goes without fan...

Maybe the AXP-100 would work better because it has top fan blowing down, and can keep the side fan as intake for positive air? Not sure how running the NH-L12 with bottom fan blowing down on MB, and side panel as intake would perform. Hmm...

Someone is going to start doing a custom loop in this case, I might end up doing it lol. Need a new card since my 6970 is a double 8pin @__@

Linus using the AXP-100 in a different case + he placed a Noctua fan on it.
