Now that you have both,which is the nicer color?

The tough part was waiting 6 months to get them smile.gif
Today I like the Black M1 (benching SSDs in the iStar hot swap adaptors)
But I am partial to the Silver M1 (they were only 20% of the original production run #800-#999)

Just an awesome case. Necere and wahaha360 did an incredible job

How exactly are you mounting the SSD? looks like the L9 is devouring space.

Good things come to those who wait.

You can see in the first pic the SSD is mounted on the underside of the cross-brace next to the cooler. With a lower profile cooler, there is a second cross-brace where you could mount another SSD or two 40mm fans.

Have you ever run Prime95 (or similar) to test temps/power at load? I was just curious what temps and power consumption you get with your rig. smile.gif I was/am considering a few of the same parts, namely the cpu and cooler. Although, it was my impression that the L9 doesn't do that great job - maybe it's just a bit quieter than using the stock heat sink and fan? I prefer low profile if air cooling, though. I really don't like the huge/tall ones.

I like the case but I am worried about cooling in such a small case - even though I like the form factor. To compromise, I've been considering the SG05 and RVZ01 so far.

P.S. Isn't the mobo - ASRock? wink.gif

Ah seen it. How are the temps with no case fans?

I haven't stressed it because the TDP is right around 138 watts and it's a 150 watt PSU with a peak of 200 for a few seconds before it fries. Not worth the risk, although I have been tempted to OC it a little. It idles around 30 and hits 50 occasionally. We don't use it for anything but streaming, watching movies, and surfing. I had the stock cooler in there at first and it was idling higher - mid to high 30s - and was starting to get louder. The L9 is virtually silent and cools better. One great thing about this case is you can VESA mount it on the back of your TV or on the wall using the optional bracket.

I would consider the SG05 over the RVZ01 depending on what components you plan to use.
