I received my Asus 760 today along with my Slim BR drive from China...(man hope that one works) So I decided to start cracking on the build. My initial thoughts so far:

I didn't get the modular supply, and it looks like these cables are gonna be a PIA. Good thing I went with a smaller cooler in the AXP-100.

Dam you silverstone for hiding 2 screws in behind the PSU bracket mount..as someone who is on 1 week of quiting smoking, my hands are not the steadiest right now tongue.gif

Pictures do not do it justice on just how cramped it is in there..wow

Im disappointed in the quality of the plastic. Feels brittle to me in comparison to a console or other cases in this price range and it almost cheapens it for me. Especially the bracket/mount for the GPU. I really felt like I was going to snap it when installing the 760 in. at 100 bucks I expected more.

The little "L" bracket for the GPU really confused the heck out of me for a while...I am running on a few hours sleep too rolleyes.gif

I got the same impression of the 15MM fans as above. feels real cheap.

I dont know if its just the unit I got, but you dont seem to screw in the slim drive, you just slide it in and its a tight fit, mind you its not going anywhere once you mount the bracket in the case. I also ordered the wrong Serial ATA Power cable adapter.

I stopped there before I got ahead of myself since Im waiting on the cooler. I know im going to curse it when installing the MB, and having to take it out to mount the cooler is just gonna peeve me off.

The case comes with two really really tiny screws that are used on one side to hold the optical drive in place. There are fingers one one side, and little holes for the screws on the other side. The side that gets the screws would be side farthest from the psu!

Am I missing something? This review has the axp100 hitting around 80 degrees celsius. Isnt that meltdown time?http://m.hardocp.com/article/2013/01/15/thermalright_axp100_cpu_air_cooler_review/3#.Uzse_xj8Kaw

PS Has anyone given an evga hadron a go? Seems a nice little case, could just use some dust fans and rearranged for positive pressure.

Isnt the chip OC'ed in this review?

If you want to OC in this case, probably better off the Noctura Nh-l12 or water cooled.

None of the Intel procs will throttle till 95c usually. At least I know that my 2700k, 3770k, 4770k, and 4930k don't throttle till there!! And my 2700k doesn't throttle till 105c rolleyes.gif ooops. biggrin.gif

And this case is really not designed for an oc'ed processor. Just not enough space/airflow to keep the CPU cool, except for maybe a custom liquid loop. I'm gonna try and do a full loop this month in mine, I won't be happy with any of the temps till then I think...... This is the OCN after all, stock clocks suck! wink.gif

Some of those number zombi are based on them OC the CPU. He even states in one of the paragraphs that he felt comfortable using the AXP on a non-OC CPU and even with a slight OC, but not running this with a OC 24/7. This heat sink is fairly smaller in size so I'd be worried to run it with an OC, but not on stock which it seems its meant for.

I haven't tried the Hadron out. It looks interesting, but the price tag and the included PSU are kind of a turn off to me.

Hello guy and ... sorry for my english. biggrin.gif
I am looking for the raven ML07 (the RVZ01 look's ugly) and i follow this treads like... very closely.
I gonna buy all the stuff at last end 2014, here's my dream configuration :

- The lastest i7 + OC
- New hight end maxwell architecture gtx gpu
- The new 550W sfx silverstone PSU + maybe a fan change if too loud
- DDR4 ram ( if is out in time )
And CPU cooler ...
I reeded all infos concerning this part in this topic and i searched my own, here what i found :
No one of recommended rad was overclock friendly and i want very hight end perf.

I found theses guys :
1/
product : http://www.raijintek.com/en/products_detail.php?ProductID=9
review : http://www.cowcotland.com/articles/1596/ventirad-raijintek-pallas.html (sorry its french but look at the pictures)
I am looking more informations about compatibilty in this case. Dimensions says he fit (and whith a 25mm fan too) and it's ok for the mobo and rams, but anyone knows if he fit into the case ?






2/
product : http://global.gamerstorm.cn/Product/Gabriel/
review : http://www.cowcotland.com/articles/1592/ventirad-deepcool-gamer-storm-gabriel.html (in french too)
The same thing with lower cooling perfomances and i am sure he fit en the raven.






I am very intrested about the raijintek, do u guys knows if he can come in the RVZ01 / ML07 ?

It's 68mm. It will fit without the case fan. If you manage to put it with a 15mm fan (based on the measurements it should be possible), it won't perform well; the fans will be facing each other and produce noise.

Edit: the gabriel performs a little worse than the axp-100 in the link you provided, so better go with the axp tongue.gif
