How badly are your tubes kinking??

The kinking is not too bad.
They goes like cycling around the CPU block

I chose to let the fan blowing out is because 2 full size 12mm standard fan under the video card are blowing cold air in, so I believe the internal temp are pretty low, and I need to get the hot air out.

I probabaly will test with old air in later when I got a new 12mm low profile 4pin fan


BTW my MB is Asus :)P8z77-i DX

Thanks Captain!

Yeah my daughter plays on it every time she gets the chance. That is one of my favorite cases. I actually won that PC in the EVGA Scavenger Hunt back in 2012 and was blown away how small the case was. Since then I have been building SFF PCs because of how powerful they can be now. When I noticed that Silverstone was coming out with the RVZ01, I knew I was getting it as soon as it was available. I am also a proud owner of the Ncase M1, FT03 Mini, and prodigy as well. Out of all of them cases, I got to say that the RVZ01 is one of my favorites. The M1 is a sweet case and is also one of my favorites but I like how slim the RVZ is.

Never posted the Tiki rebuild on OCN since I do a lot of my postings over at the EVGA forums. Thought is was time to get my post count up over here since I have been a member since 2011. smile.gif So I will be around here more often.

can you take a picture of the ft03-mini, rvz01. and the ncase m1 side by side?

Hi Guys

I've had this case for a while now and finally saved up the money for a graphics card upgrade. However I'm having trouble on deciding which one.
This machine is in the living room so hoping to keep it as quiet as possible. Its also plugged in to a TV so I'm really only playing 1080p. Wanting to play games like titianfall, BF4...etc

I'm in Australia so we kind of get screwed with pricing any how, I guess my options are:
Sapphire R9 290X Tri-X-OC 4GB -$699
EVGA GTX 780 Superclocked ACX- $679
EVGA GTX 780 ti superclocked ACX- $869

I've also heard that EVGA is bring out 6GB GTX 780 and GTX 780 ti however I'm not sure if having the extra 3GB will provide any real benefit unless you have multiple monitors or playing at super high resolution. Plus they'll be a bit more expensive ($50 US I believe, however this will probably translate to 100+ over here). So wondering if its also worth waiting/paying extra....

So what do people recommend GPU wise for this case?
Cheers

I will always recommend an nVidia GPU for an SFF build, the R9 cards are good hardware, but they just run too hot IMHO. If your running at 1080, I say get the 780 non-Ti card, it will play those games at great FPS, and be pretty cool for you doing it. Just my 2cents.gif

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.
This was with an i7 4770k:

I'm running a 25mm SP120 Quiet on the side panel pulling air in with the AXP-100 using its 100mm fan blowing air down the heatsink. There is no turbulence. Turbulence will only occur if 2 fans are blowing air against each other. I'm thinking of taking that SP120 off after some testing and placing one of my AF120's Quiet that I have laying around to push even more air into the case.

I'll run some tests later tonight for whoanelly, I didn't get a chance to the last 2 nights.

Thanks Jim. Do you (or anyone else) have any thoughts on holding out/spending more on 6gb gtx 780/780ti? Is it going to be worth it?

Do you plan on playing games in multi-screen surround? The only benefit I see at this moment especially in the RVZ01 and a 780Ti / Titan / Titan Black 6gb is pure e-peeen. You'll be fine with the 780 3gb if you stay within single screen 1080P and even 1440P thumb.gif

Yeah I build this as a console replacement/htpc. So I reckon I'll be sticking to one screen for a while.

Thanks hyp365rmax

You bet! If you have the extra cash mine as well go with the 780Ti 3gb and have a blast. thumb.gif
