I also ordered a different WIFI card off of ebay for $6.48 which is compilable out of the box with OS X.
Great build!

The ASRock Z87E-ITX and ASUS Maximus VI Impact work great with OSX. I'll go with either of those just because I've heard bad things about the quality of Gigabyte boards.

I'm going with an EVGA 780 Ti SC ACX, will the 450 Gold have the right power connectors? I'll get the slim cables if that helps.

LP53, never saw that one frown.gif

A little bigger than the ITX30 I have here. More copper power!

What temps are you getting with that? I'd like to find a more ideal cooling solution myself.

Yeah I saw that, but then if Apple uses them in their stuff can they really be that bad?

Does anyone know of any really good fans that would fit in the sides of the case? I have a slot free as the CPU cooler I'm using doesn't block that side door fan.

Yes, the 780Ti ACX uses 1x8-pin and 1x6-pin, so no adapters needed.

If the rest of the system runs a lot hotter than with the blower, then I will keep the blower; if it is a few degrees (I believe this will be), I'll keep the ACX tongue.gif

Only downside of the blower so far is that I don't feel comfortable putting a drive in the slot on top of the exhaust; I checked my SSD temps on that slot and it reached 46c idle, in the middle slot it was at 31c idle. Too much.

I never had issues with temps from the 770 using an ACX cooler here. Temps were the same in all cases I've tried it in. As long as your fans under the GPU are pushing air in you'll be fine.

Then after I'd ordered the AXP-100 Muscle someone on here complained about its noise which made me apprehensive; however after putting it into my case along with the 2 standard fans that came with the case I can honestly say that it is damn near silent. It's as quiet as my laptop is once I put it together. The only noise came from my GTX 770 which was second hand off of Amazon and is most definitely faulty so I'm returning that. I'm very happy with this build.

I did a few things in the wrong order so I had to take it apart a couple of times, but it was a pretty quick build, took about 4 hours total. Firstly I forgot to fix the screws underneath the mobo for the cpu before putting it into the case.

DocDigby, awesome build. thumb.gif I was the guy that had issues with the AXP-100 Muscle. It makes me wonder if my fan was bad out of the box. glad yours is working well and is silent.

I haven't tested my build much since making it, but from turning it on without the GFX in it is pretty silent, I can see the fan spinning and it clocks in around 40c idling in the bios; but I haven't tested it under load to see if it would get loud though. What cooler are you using now? Are the temps any better?

Please report back when you have tested the system, I'd be interested to see how it works with the Muscle's fan running at load.

I moved on to the Node 304 due to the cooling issues that I was having with the RVZ01. My darn motherboard is a PITA with some of the low profile coolers so it makes it hard finding one for this case.

Thanks Capt! Definitely better than the ITX30 I have here, but well, such is life. I'll keep the ITX30, it's already installed.

It should perform flawlessly nonetheless. If anyone was considering the ITX30, just get the LP53.
