Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 97

post #961 of 7096
if anyone is interested in results for the noctua nh-l9i here are the readings on my pc Idling which has been on for a few hours and running AID64 stability test for half an hour, with a not particularly cool room. The Cpu in use is a i5-3570k running at stock
This is the idle:

And during the test:



for case cooling I have 3 be quiet pure wings 2 fans running at about 7v which keeps them quiet but still push a lot of air.

Not that it's a very scientific test, but it gives you an idea of its cooling capability.

Thats pretty impressive since every review I saw on that cooler stated that it was only marginally better than stock cooling, one said it was about 7.5C less than stock on an i3. This must be due to the inclusion of your 3 case fans, more importantly the one above your heat sink. I love the the fit. When I think about having to go into the raven with the NH-l12 there, makes me shudder.

Are how is the case, vertical or horizontal?

it's sitting vertically, with the GPU at the top, and no feet on, because I'm a lazy ****

I really wonder how some of these reviewers even test this equipment. I understand we all are placing these components in varying setups/environments, but some reviews are way off. The best is that some will test HTPC or SFF air coolers on ATX boards. I'm like ***, isn't it the point of these smaller coolers to be tested on an m-ITX board. LOL!

Im wondering about this one @CaptainZombie ...This could be THE cooler to get, but only IF you upgrade your case fans. Im thinking 3 x 25MM's

Hey @funnybutrandom, would you mind running that test again but in a horizontal state?

Which one are you thinking about whoanelly since it didn't show up in your post?

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!

Hey Nerix, try to post your laod temps with the AXP. Would be great to compare this to the Noctua NH l9i 92

I just may send back the NH L12...or just use the Muscle.

Sorry @CaptainZombie, the noctua nh-l9i

I looked at that one, it's not compatible with my motherboard due to a stupid transistor cap by the CPU socket. Some people cut out 2 of the fins on the l9i to fit it on the ASrock Z77e-i and it worked, but not sure I want to cut up heat sinks. LOL!

sure thing just running it now, it may be a few degrees off what is typical as I've been gaming on it for a bit and it's now very warm in my room, but upon starting the test the CPU is at 36 and GPU at 38

ok here you go, note that I turned off GPU stress testing because it was sitting at 80 and made me a little nervous.
