That thing is the bastard love child of an SFX psu and a mATX psu.

This is a good option for people who want really quiet builds, there's just no getting around the fact that a standard SFX PSU can only fit a 92mm fan at most.

Well guys, a few pictures:

Thermolab ITX30, super small!


Mounted!


Prolimatech fans


The view from outside


Build Completed! Cable management improved from last time, now it's decent. I'm thinking of getting a long cable for the 8-pin CPU, so it doesn't touches the PCI-E Riser Card.



So far PWM has been a pain because of the splitter, which I forgot to take a picture of. Anyway it's this one right here. I'm still figuring out how to make it work. I did plugged in one fan directly to the header and tested PWM. These USV12 fans are really good, and noticeable noise begins at 1000RPM. The box says they go from 400RPM to 1300RPM, but in my test anything below 700RPM completely turns off the fan.

The noise they generate at high RPM's is due to all the air they are pulling through the grills. I ran them outside of the case at full speed and I could just hear the airflow because I was holding them, if I went a little far they were hard to notice. I'm thinking of getting some washers, so they are not so close to the grills and the noise diminishes at high RPM's.

Going to the ITX30, I think I may have messed up the thermal paste, or the pre-applied one is cheap, because with Small FFT's in Prime95 the temperatures ramp up really fast and get near 87c. I don't have an overclock and the heatsink is rated for CPU's up to 100W, so I'm thinking thermal paste is the problem here. At idle speeds it keeps really cool though, cooler than intel stock fan. Plus the fan is silent, even at high RPM's

That's all for now, when the GPU PWM cable arrives I will be playing with that a little and obviously let you guys know thumb.gif

Ehh, I have had my 450G pulling over 500w at the wall, fan going full blast, it was still the quietest fan in the system. I'll take smaller and more powerful over that love child psu.

Your build looks nice, maybe try to clean up some of the cables to allow better air flow. Like I recommended over PM, try to get some Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste if you have a Microcenter near you or order some online. It's a little bit on the expensive side, but I get better temps with it vs. other paste that I have used in the past.

So I decided to give this case another shot. LOL! I am a tard for sure. I ordered a different AXP-100 Muscle to try since it is really the only heatsink that will allow me to also use the side panel fan or the Samuel 17 which hasn't received the greatest reviews.

I might even try to swap out the case fans with Noctua's to see if that also helps, but my AF120's were pretty good for the most part.

Yep, I was gonna get the PP05-E kit but since the 600W PSU will ship with similar cables I'll just wait for that. PSU cables are the harder to accomodate of all the ones in the case.

My parts finally arrived and I finished my build yesterday. Really a good moment when you push the power button for the first time and everything works just fine from the start wink.gif The AXP-100 Muscle is a good fit (not sure if I would go for a bigger cooler, that would be really tight).

Compared to the pictures I have seen, my cable management is kind of chaotic - but as long as nothing blocks the fans, I think I am fine. The CPU idle temp is round about 36°C. The noise level is okay - not supersilent, but also far away from annoying (but I haven´t maxed out the system yet).

The next time I would eventually go for the Silverstone ST45SF-G PSU, as the flexible cables fit there (http://www.amazon.com/Silverstone-Tek-Flexible-Modular-PP05-E/dp/B00H7Y3I4M)

The build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3o9LK

Thanks everyone for answering all the questions (especially Jimhans, whoanelly etc..). Great thread!

Yeah, I don't blame you. Figure the 600W is supposed to release sometime between now and August. I wonder how much of that will be hampered with that 500W PSU that Silverstone is planning to release soon. Honestly, it doesn't look like a bad PSU from what we have seen. I am glad that Silverstone is leading the charge on SFX and PSU under 140mm, especially if this new one hits 120-125 mm in size. If they can get a good 92mm or 100mm fan in there, it'll kill these 80mm crap fans.

I'll add you to the list, do you have any pics to add?

How's the AXP-Muscle working for you on the noise level front? The one I had was problematic, so I ended up ordering another one last night. I was getting between 34-36 degrees on idle with the Muscle which is pretty good and very comparable to my H60.

Which brand of fans are you running under your the GPU?

I'd wait for the Silverstone ST600SF-G which should be out by or around summer time. It will also come with the thin cable set. Not sure how much it'll cost, but my guess would be around $120-130. I think if Silverstone charges anything more than that, it's robbery. Maybe they will surprise us and charge the price of the 450W and lower the price of the 450W to the bronze level. One of the biggest complaints I keep reading is how overpriced that these SFX PSU's are. The issue is that when they own the market with SFX, they can charge what they want.

So does anyone have a clue why they haven't released the ML07 yet? Don't get me wrong the RVZ01 is a nice looking case but I like the clean edges of the ML07 better.

Last I had read was in Q2 2014 which is April - June. Maybe Jim can enlighten us on what he has heard since he is a Silverstone reseller. thumb.gif The ML07 looks nice, my only concern is the side panels do not have the same amount of ventilation holes that the RVZ01 has to expel heat.
