Thanks for checking it out. Adding a GPU has not affected temps which I attribute to the fact that it has it's own compartment. It is impressive they designed this case to fit a full sized card.
Let me know the results or your testing with the AR06 vs C7! On my other build I just replaced the Noctua NH-L9 cooler with an AXP-100 and I'll add an update soon.
Absolutely, I'll post on update hopefully this weekend once I install the new cooler. Let me know how testing goes with the filter material.
Without the filters there is about a 16C drop under full load. I suspect this is because the cooler height is so short that it's too far away from the mesh. I don't think I have this issue in my other build but I should test this! I'm going to replace the cooler with a thermalright AXP-100 .
Yes I would have preferred that but it is not possible with the mounting bracket.
Running stock. If you're just playing games you'll probably be fine since you won't have a lot of CPU utilization. If you do some activity that does use a lot of CPU you will have trouble. Run Prime95 program for 30 minutes and see how it does.
I have the same setup and that's what I'm seeing. The cooler however fails a stress test so I'm probably switching it out. There are larger coolers that fit in the case.
Thanks, it's very convenient for a motorized desk and it saves space.
Wow, looks like that guy can only hold 1 though!
Poorly, would not recommend. Check out my CPU cooler section in description!
One of us!
Yes it is, I have 2 of them. I wouldn't recommend the table tops but the standard legs work just fine.
Thanks, it overachieves at this task. In fact, it could hold 4 or 5 pairs at once!
What CPU temps are you getting?
What are your CPU temps? Do you know the difference adding the larger fan to the CPU cooler made?
What are your CPU temps now with the ML08b case?
Finally added a video card 2 years to the day of first construction. No more low settings for me!
I actually haven't installed a GPU but there's nothing stopping any GPU you put in here from performing at full capacity. Plenty of cooling with the GPU separated into it's own compartment. I've been playing mostly Rocket League and some older games on it that the integrated GPU handles great.
I still do not have a GPU!
Pretty easy to cable manage as you can see from the pictures. Not sure on the weight but it's very light!
I chose it because it's a SFX-L power supply so it fits in a tiny case but yet has a 120mm fan so it's silent versus a regular SFX power supply which has a smaller fan.
No problems at all! I would recommend it and installation was easy, just set it upside down and then flip your motherboard upside down and lower it onto the cooler so all the screws line up. Then tighten the screws evenly.
I just couldn't find one that fit my needs so I ended up having to build one :)
Thanks for the advice I put it on my list.
If you want the smallest PC possible then I think this is the best case for the job. The handle is optional so you can decide whether it would be beneficial for you or not. If you move the PC around a big house or something it's definitely nice!
It's actually a really cool design, there is a completely seperate compartment for the GPU and it can fit a full sized one. There is a hardware adapter that connects to the PCI-E slot and has a 90 degree angle so the card is in essence flat like the motherboard. Here is a picture or someone else's build in the RVZ02 case which is the same as the ML08 that I used: http://media.gamersnexus.net/media/k2/items/cache/fb2f4dce862da1bee62f9456b87d8a12_XL.jpg
That's good advice!
