Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 102

post #1011 of 7141
Hi guys
I got this case 2 days ago, and I'm running on the stock cooler right now

I'm going to pull the corsair H40 from my other PC and put it here tonight.

to save me a little bit of headache, will a standard thickness 120mm fan fit in or I will need to use the Silverstone provided slim profile fan?

Thanks !

Seems like this is my first post since Join date, Feb 2007,,, LOL

Welcome!

With the rad on the side panel, you will need to use the slim fan but you can try to place the 25mm stock fan to see if it fits. From what I recall, I couldn't fit it with my setup when I had the H60 so I used the Silverstone 15mm.

Hi CZ

How did you get your H60 fit in? I can't even get my H40 fit in with slim fan~

my placement is Case panel - Rad - Fan blowing out - CPU block - Motherboard

I turn the rad 360 degrees, and hose will go around with CPU block

but no matter how I try, the hose will block the fan, and I will get CPU fan failure warning ~ doh.gif

EDIT: spot on whoanelly, you estimated 45° wink.gif Will try the aida test in the next few days.


thumb.gif looks like the calculation can be used and an official rule of thumb !

So all that being said, how is the noise level with you unit? Would you consider it loud, or more like yeah its on I can hear it but not annoying you'll forget about it.

I bought the axp originally from ebay and last minuted decided to go withe the Noctua. While I do like it, it is a beast in there, and it seems our temps are pretty much in line with each other...it might be worth the effort to rip out the Noctua and go with the axp. I bought the Noctua from Newegg, so I should be able to return it.

Setup would be AXP, 3 x 25MM Noctua fans.

Just need to hear from @CaptainZombie and see how his build is going. He was going to run some tests and had already installed some quieter fans in his.

Hey Tete, I have pictures in the first few pages of this thread. It was a royal pain to get this to fit. I had to push down on the tubing too which created kinks.

Which motherboard are you using?

Whoanelly, I'll test it out tonight with a more demanding game than NBA2K14 since I didn't get a chance to last night.

@whoanelly not sure if running the AXP-100 and a 25mm sidepanel fan would work well together. I've heard having two fans so close can cause turbulence noise issues.

I'm thinking of trying Thermolab LP53 (see review) with 3x25mm Noctua NF-S12A's. If the LP53 fan is loud I'll replace it with Noctua NF-R8 PWM.

In SFF/HTPC builds, noise is always a factor, and the LP53 is a near silent performer. Noise was imperceptible outside of the case at fan speeds under ~1800rpm, and speeds over were not abrasive. The biggest point, however, is that fans speeds using a standard BIOS profile never reached anywhere near this level during normal usage, including HD playback and gaming. During these tasks the LP53 remained silent.

This was with an i7 4770k:

As long as the two fans are oriented the same way, it shouldn't be an issue, I've not found that having two fans even touching each other to be any noisier than if they were farther apart.

I end up getting things all in in a different placement.

Case Panel
I
Fan Blow Out
I
Rad
I
Motherboard

I'm using the case supplied 3pin low profile fan, which I think are relatively low in efficiency, and no speed control

I'm still deciding if I should go with air cooling or get another 4pin low profile fan.

Reverse the fan so it's blowing into the case and using cold air to cool the rad!!

How badly are your tubes kinking??
