2 Members have also reported good temps with:

Zalaman 8900 Quiet (member reported 55-60 degrees Temps during game play no OC'ed without use of fan above, can probably get better temps if one was used
Coolermaster GeminII S4
Thx for clarifying.

Any thoughts on this cooler? Scythe Big Shuriken 2 (125 x 135 x 58): http://www.scythe-eu.com/produkte/cpu-kuehler/big-shuriken-2.html
Some tests are quite positive about it.

A short summary about viable cooler options, after reading this thread and a few reports:


Right now I am leaning towards the Scythe Big Shuriken or the Thermalright AXP100. But the Shuriken probably has the bette cooling performance, as the heatsink is bigger? So difficult smile.gif

I'm thinking of building one of these with an MSI 760 ITX, and have a question for anyone who's already done so. I'm planning on installing a 2.5" SSD and a 2.5" 750G WD Black, and would really like to give them both some airflow -- with the short 760 installed, is there enough room left under the graphics card bracket to (vertically) mount a pair of 2.5" drives over the front 120mm intake?

I don't blame you, the SG05 is a nice little power house of a case and very compact.

To play it safe I'd probably go with the SG08-lite or the Node 304 just to have a bit more room. That's if I don't get the RVZ01 to work work out, but I know I will this time. I was thinking of getting a laptop HDD, 1TB and using that in here instead of my regular 3.5 inch 1 TB so that way it saves on some space.

Im still waiting on my GPU and Blue Ray drive...I ordered the Blue Ray from China on Ebay. You'll probably have yours up and running before I get everything...I look forward to your pics/results!

I am going to go with the same setup that I had last month with this case. The 2x Corsair AF120's blowing air into the GPU and then the 15mm on the side panel blowing air down to the motherboard. With the AXP-100, I might be able to get a 25mm fan on the side panel I think, so I could try that too.

I was considering looking at the Noctua fans though, albeit being ugly, if they are better than the Corsair's and help with reducing noise and better air flow I'm all for that.

I'd love to see some custom cooling options in this case. Even cooling the CPU could be done here better than the AIO because you can control the lengths of the tubing.

I ordered a prolimatech fan for testing. If they are as good as I've read, I'm gonna get two more right away. They should do well on the gpu and cpu, plus they are 15mm which is better in the RVZ01.

Honestly, the cooling was the most difficult choice for this build.

With all of these, getting to the RAM will be difficult (not just the Zalaman), you will need to remove the heat sink no matter which one you go with. I think its safe to say the Lower profile/Standard sized memory would be a must unless running water cooled or stock fan. This is why I didn't go with the GeminII in the end as you fasten the cooler from the back of the MB, you would have to take everything apart if you need to make a change to ram/cpu. One user here stated that he was happy with the temps and said it was quieter than his Xbox One.

The Shruken looks good, but may end up hitting the PCI riser (could be MB specific). The numbers do look good on that one and the fan looks decent.

I really liked the Noctura and has been validated here with proof by at least 2 people...price was the only thing that stopped me, but you would get a 25MM fan out of it to stick in your GPU area.

The Zalaman Quiet was also tempting, but it reminds me to much of a stock cooler, so its more about noise than temps that worry me. One poster said he got 55-60 degrees on the Quiet, but didnt say much about the noise.

I think the Shruken/GeminII/AXP-100 are going to perform similar to each other in terms of temps or at least within a few degrees of each other and will still be better than stock, plus you have the benefit of swapping out the fans on them.

UPS dropped by to drop off some movies and look at what shows up a day early. I wish that Amazon would of not charged $130 for the 450W PSU or else I would ordered the RVZ01 and PSU from there too, they would of showed up today instead of Wednesday. That is insane they are charging $30 more than everyone else is.

Here are some pics of the AXP-100 Muscle, it looks great. Sorry for the crappy phone pics.

Have you found a good review?
I only found this review.

Looks good, but I haven't seen it below $50 anywhere frown.gif

Scythe Big Shuriken 2 RevB looks like a great cooler, just make sure it'll fit your mobo and doesn't block the PCI-e slot. The problem is that it blocked mine so it wasn't one I could go with. I was looking at this originally and the Noctua NH-L12, but my stupid motherboard messed that up on me due to how close the PCI-e slot was to the CPU socket.

I'd be very careful with that H60, I had a hell of a time getting it to sit properly and the tubing also kinked towards the rad. I'd be worried over time of a possible leak.

Thanks, thumb.gif Now I need to find out if this fan sucks, am I able to place a different fan on here. The manual says that other 120mm fans will fit and on their site, but this looks like a 92/100mm fan. I have to do some investigating on that.

that does look sweeeeeeeet! I've read similar regarding changing the fan...shoot, I should have booked marked it but I think I remember reading that they put a larger fan on it actually made it a bit worse due to the positioning of it on top of the fins or something along those lines. I think if its within a few degrees of the NHL-12 and is quiet to boot than this may be the the cooler to get at stock speeds.
