Hi Guys

Built my machine named "Twisting Get", finally tonight, will be editing this to add photos later.

System Spec:
Haswell i5 4670K
ASUS Gryphon Z87 M-ATX Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 1866 DDR3 8GB Kit
Mushkin Chronos 240GB SSD
Palit GTX570
Corsair TX750 PSU
2 x 1TB Pipeline Drives for slow storage
Samsung 24X DVDRW
Pluscom HDD Caddy (SATA)

Case Fans
2X Enermax 140MM PWM Cluster Fans
3X Corsair 120MM Case Fans

All Built into my Corsair Vengeance C70 Green.

One big thing to look out for when choosing a cpu cooler, the Thermalright True Spirit 140 is too big, and overlaps the top PCI-E lane

The Scythe Ashura will however fit (just). So measuring the Width of the cooler is important when using an MATX Gryphon board.

So I have ended up using stock cooler for now, but will grab a new one asap.

**edit** First world problems smile.gif turns out the True Spirit 140 from Thermalright is 155mm wide!!!

Old reliable before uninstall.


It DOES look nice in my case:


Still need to tidy cables, will do that when I get my new cooler fitted.



Using the included ASUS software, temps for the cpu are around 30C idle and no more than 39/40C Playing BF3/Grid2

have not had time to do any serious testing yet, but I will do.

Nice build. I'm going to pull the trigger on something very similar. I was thinking about the Gryphon but have settled on the z87-A. I'm planning on the True Spirit 140 too and appreciate the info. Would it have cleared the ram if you rotated it 90 degrees?

Hi oorenotsoo

If you get very low profile ram, then yes the cooler would likely clear it the other way on as the heatsinks on the gryphon are fairly low too.

The problem with the cooler is the Gryphon is an m-atx board, and everything is scrunched up
you need to measure the max width of 155mm on your board to check.

looking at the z87-a on Asus' website http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Z87A/#gallery
shows a pci-e x1 slot being the first, so you would have no trouble at all with the True Spirit 140, which is a really nice cooler.

I have a BeQuiet Dark Rock Advanced arriving this morning, so will fit that later, if the wife lets me play more, since I have been all about Haswell since the weekend! smile.gif

Why an µATX board in such a big ATX case?

It was £60 cheaper than the Sabretooth has all the features I want, a big 5 year warranty and is the right colour scheme smile.gif
The pricing finally sold it to me though, it has some amazing features, which I will post some of here once testing gets properly done.

Update time smile.gif

Fitting the Bequiet Dark Rock Advanced C1 was definitely a 2 man job
1 person can do it, but it would definitely cause a severe case of Mr Sweary Grumpy Pants.
HSF fitted using MX4 tim, Will be benching at the weekend, currently CoreTemp and HWMonitor more or less agree that it hit approx 60C while playing BF3 last night. That is of course with Turbo enabled so that would be 60C at 3.8GHz



and Finally fitted into the case, this one's a bit dark but you get the idea.

Thanks for the followup.

Looks like a clean, albeit tight fit. In the last pic, the coolers looks very, very close to the back of the gpu. I can definitely see how that would be easier with an extra pair of hands.

Any plans on getting the cover or the back plate for the Gryphon? Also, why no exhaust fan on the rear of the case?
