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 :

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 ?

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.





Looks alot like the axp-100 cept with a 25mm fan. Not sure how it would handle OC, your best bet would be to use the Noctura NH-l12 if you plan to OC, but as others have stated in this thread this case really isnt going to give you the best cooling options for OC'ing, although people are doing it.

I'm gonna try the Thermolab ITX30. I've seen it on $42 but now is higher, I'm waiting for it to drop again. The reviews I've read put it on par with the AXP so maybe you get interested in that one.

It's very small, I think it doesn't gets out of the CPU designated zone on the board, so it won't have any problem with RAM, PCI-E slots, etc.

Edit: Since you want to OC but you won't buy the hardware right now, maybe in the time being a smaller AIO comes to market which fits better this case (no bent tubing which was the main problem with AIO's).

That's what I'm hoping for at least.

Ok, I think I figured out my heat sink issue. I ended up getting some washers and I placed them on top of the 4 mounts that the bracket sits on top of. This allowed to raise the bracket about an 1/8 of an inch but rests right on the cap. I was able to tighten the heat sink down and there is no wiggle room which I was worried about.

Do you guys recommend placing a little bit of electrical tape on the top of the cap or the bottom of the bracket that goes over the cap? This way there is no metal on bracket contact or it doesn't matter?

Here are some pics of the AXP-100 Muscle on the ASRock Z77E-I.

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01




I am also thinking of actually taking my 1TB 3.5 inch HDD and placing it in my kids PC, and probably just placing a 2.5 inch laptop 750GB HDD in here along with my SSD. This way I can free up some space on top of the PSU bracket by not placing a HDD on there.

Which one of these would be the better buy?

WD Black 750 GB Mobile Hard Drive - 2.5", Sata 6 Gb/s, 7200RPM - $69

WD Blue 1 TB Mobile Hard Drive, Solid Performance for Everyday Computing - 2.5" - Sata 6 Gb/s, 5400RPM - $79

HGST Travelstar 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 6.0 - $79

My guess is that it doesn't matter. Just a guess, I don't know for sure.

The drives look good. I could just find this barracuda for $5 less

Forget it, it's 3.5.

WD Black 750 FTW!! I love the little black drives!!! The blues are fair, and even though WD bought HGST, I'd still stay away from them!

And the cap is a solid cap, so no, e-tape not necessary

Cool, thanks. Are the Blue drives decent? Both the black and blue are in stock at my local Tiger Direct and if the Blue is decent I would consider it for the extra space over the black.

I ended up going with the Black drive. Case and PSU were delivered at 9 am, just have to finish up some work related things since I work at home today and I can start assembling everything.

Blacks are better performers than blues. You may get good benefit while gaming as well so yeah best choice was that!

Yeah which is good, I was just a little concerned with the heat the Black's could be putting off at 7200 RPM but from a few reviews it actually wasn't bad.
