Silverstone Raven RV03 2 Rad Placement

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an EK Coolstream XT 360 and a Koolance HX-CU720VS 240mm. Currently I'm using just the 360 in my sig rig and I'm planning to break my sig rig up into a SAN box and then a gaming box. I need a new case for the gaming rig and I was looking for something that's a little smaller than an HAF 932 and I stumbled across the RV03. I was wondering if anyone has had any success in mounting two rads inside of the case, especially a 360 as thick as this on the bottom. I'm planning to run p/p on both rads via some combination of the built in 180mm Air Penetrators and Scythe GT AP-15s.

well im not sure about p/p set ups , but there are a few places you can mount rads, you can remove the two 180mm fans at the bottom of the case and fit a 240 rad there but i dont think there will be enough clearance with your video card for push pull. the fan mount at the back of the case, if you drilled out more vents below it you can mount a 240rad there, you could fit a 120rad were the exhaust fan is. yo can put a 240 or 120 in the drivebays but then you could not put any thing else in there e.g rom drive or bay reservoir.

Take a look at the pic below and note 2 things:-

silverstone rv03 bottom radiator support.jpg

(pic source: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1653246)

 

1.  it is not possible to fit a 360 radiator on the bottom, not because of the rad thickness but the length is too long unless somehow you remove the PSU to some place else.

 

To fit a 360, one option is to do it outside of the case to the rear.

Eg:-http://www.overclock.net/t/988115/my-silverstone-rv03-wc-build

 

2.  it is possible to fit a 240 rad to the bottom.  The length of the graphics card(s) basically dictates the combined thickness of the rad + push fan + pull fan.

 

For visual comparison:

-On the left, the fan is the stock 180mm AP fan which is 32mm thick.

-On the right, total thickness is 32mm (FM181 fan) + 32mm (180mm rad) + 32mm (180mm AP fan) = 96mm.  Obviously this has conflict with the lengthy Asus HD6970 DirectCU II (with 297mm length).

 

However, as the Koolance HX-CU720VS is just 38mm thick, making a total thickness of 32+38+32=102mm,  I suppose this rad would fit as your GTX570 measures only 267mm (30mm shorter than the HD6970DCII).
