Hey everyone getting ready to buy the raven for my mini build running into some concerns sounds like a some people are having issues with the gpu and cpu getting a bit warm in the 80s-90s my question is what does everyone recommend bottom line for keeping this thing cool as ice but staying high quality low price like under 60 if possible just looking for answers more than price but that helps thanks in advance to replies

The RVZ01B is meant for positive pressure and it does that very good. With the components you have(a 65 watts tdp i5-6500 and GTX 1060), I highly doubt you will have heat issues. I would put both included slim fans on gpu side and get the cryorig C7. Buy a 120mm fan to put over the cpu. Remember all 3 fans must be intaking air.

Why are you going with a Z170 motherboard and a locked i5? Also the corsair SF450 is a much better psu with a much better warranty and same price(7 years vs 3 years).

Well been piecing the build and getting feedback as I go if you have suggestions on the proccesor and mother board I'm all ears I've been upgrading as I get the feedback to get the best build I can at least do

If you dont want to overclock you can get the B150 or H170 motherboard to save some cash. If you want to overclock then you can get the 6600K and keep the Z170 motherboard.

You would have two options... One is going with an ITX 1060 and a H55 liquid cooler which should keep the i5 with decent temps or go with the silverstone NT06 pro cooler.

If overclocking something like this.. I changed ram to 2666 and you could also use the silverstone NT06 pro instead of the H55. The H55 only if getting a mini itx GPU as you would install next to gpu.

How's the msi Z170A

Which one? Also this are all ATX.. If youre building in the RVZ01 you need itx.

Still 239 for both i5 and motherboard is a very good deal.
