Industrial Eskimo

This afternoon it finally happend!



My new case the Raven05 by Silverstone arrived.





It arrived in absolute perfect condition, lucky me.




Seeing her naked the first time is always exciting!




But what's inside her was not that much (until now).




Right let's stay serious for a moment. These are the parts I will use in this build, they all come from my previous build 'The Quiet Viking'.
So that'll be:
Asus Sabertooth Z87
i5 4590 with Scythe Ashura
Crucial Ballistix 8GB 1600mhz RAM
Nvidia GTX 770 with Rajintek Morpheus
Samsung 850EVO 120GB SSD
Seagate 7200RPM 1tb HDD
All powered by a Corsair RM650 PSU




After installing my motherboard I noticed that there was not much space left between my CPU cooler and the case.




But I checked the fitment and I was all good.




On to some minor modding. We all know these pesky small frontpanel connectors (here on the right). What I always did until now is replace them with the connector you get on internal USB2.0 cables. (here on the left)




The result then looks like this. It's cleaner IMO and it's certainly easier to plug in! (why are we not funding this?)




Next on my list was the PSU install and that went on like a breeze.




Seems like Silverstone did some thinking, holes in the handles to reach the screws. Good Job!




What would be a build log without a dog?




Right, my next subject was my GPU. I installed 2 of my Noctua S12 Redux on it to replace my clicking Enermax fans.




Why isnt everything powdercoated like this?




It fits! A bit closer to the bottom fan than I expected but still more than enough space.




Storage has been fitted aswell. The SSD is being held in place by magic.




Well actually it's double sided tape...




And we are done! took me only about 5 hours and about 10 years of my life because of all the cable management frustration. But look at it youself.











And she lives! I hope you enjoyed this quick build log, but keep this thread in your mind more to come!

Very nice fella. Yeah the cable management is a real dog on this, but when it's all squeezed back together they do look very nice. Cooling is epic too.

looking nice, but is that a noctua air flow fan on heatsink? Shouldn't you have a pressure optimized fan instead?

yeah those are airflow fans, I mainly used them because they kinda fit the build and I didn't have any other fans on hand I wanted to use. The Gpu temps haven't changed its still 75C in Valley and my Cpu is somewhere around 45C, I could have left that fan off tbh.
Anyways I will have to see which fans I will get as a replacement, maybe even start a color scheme.

Nicely done. Makes a nice change from seeing all of these complete overkill water cooling builds.

I bet its pretty damn quiet as well.
