Good thing for the receiver to drown out some of that noise.

hmm..which case fans you got running in there now? Can you do a 10 minute run? I'll have to run a test again on mine, but I think I was getting around 52'ish under load and that was a mix match of fans in there, but I can say it was no where near as load as my PS3 could get, but then again, I didnt have an exhaust fan at the back of the cabinet like I do now. You think the noise is coming from the AXP's fan?

I agree with you on the ML07... it is a bit on the boring side, it looks more of a traditional piece of AV equipment and I actually don't mind that look where as the Raven can come off as more last generation console-ish. If its going in a media cabinet some people might want that look. Do you know if its bigger than the Raven? if so, it might allow for more cooling options and be a better OC candidate. Only basing it on that picture I would assume the Raven would be able to "breathe" better.

I wouldn't know which to choose based on pictures alone, and probably let price dictate...unless the ML was the better option for reason x, y, z

Yes, you can fit 25mm fans under the GPU. These have been great and have really helped in keeping my 770 ACX very cool.

25mm fan pushing >> panel >> rad >> 12,5mm pulling.
Even then, I was not able to fit the 120m Seidon like some others, the screws on the cpu block were bulging too much to be able to strap down the tubes around it. You best bet is if you own a SHORT graphic card, you can put the radiator at the end of GPU section.
I also tried the H75 and RMAed it because it was too tight even with only the 12,5mm fan pulling. I have the Impact as well BTW.
After trying H75 and 120M I decided to go with a performing air cooler instead of underperforming water cooling (because of tube kinking and single fan usage or modding the case).
After reading reviews of many, I went with the NT06-PRO which is made for this case anyways...

Those were my 2 cents!

Maggo

How's the NT06 Pro working out for you?

Has anyone tried to custom water cool this case at all? We've seen a partial cooling build here, but the person that was working on it never reported their finish/results. At first I was high on water cooling the CPU, but the AXP-100 Muscle is doing a good job now that I have one working well. I think water cooling the GPU would be the best and would probably about reduce the noise in the case by a lot.

Hey guys, not sure if you had seen this video, but the guy talks about the new cases. He spends a lot of time on the Raven and then speaks about the ML-07. He states that its going to be 10-15 dollars more than the raven and the its pretty much the same case internally and they were just going for a less aggressive look in comparison to the Raven:

So nothing different other than external appearance.

While I appreciate both I think the raven is "cooler" but would definatley obsess over which one to choose for a few days had they been release at the same time tongue.gif

I am still using the same case fans. 2x120mm AF120's Quiet under the GPU and 1x120mm SP120 Quiet on the side panel.

I don't think the noise is coming from the AXP's fan, I think its the GPU's fans when under load that are sounding loud. Figure this is more of an open case due to the 3 sides having vents so more noise will carry through.

The ML07 is the same size as the RVZ01, just with a different look. The ML07 is not bad looking, too bad it didn't have a similar look in the front to some of the other ML line. I bet in person it probably look a hell of a lot better too. I have a feeling we will be seeing it release next month along with that 600W SFX PSU because Silverstone updated their warranty pages yesterday for the new SFX PSU.

I'll rerun the tests for you tonight at 10 minutes. What did you think of the tests even at the 2-3 minute mark that I ran them? This case seems to run pretty cool looking at my ASRock tuner and EVGA Precision on the components.

Yup, I had posted that video on the first few pages somewhere. The ML07 has less ventilation too as you can see vs. the RVZ01. There are tons of ventilation holes on the sides and back with the RVZ01 where the ML07 only has some on the edges of the sides and on the rear. I bet acoustics will be better in the ML07 since sound isn't leaking out of the case.

Just wondering if anyone thinks I'm crazy or not... My current thinking is given the space constraints that I'd like to try customer water cooling one of these. The plan is a full cover for the mono and CPU, water block on the GPU, rad below the GPU and a reservoir in the 3.5 inch bay.

Expensive, but it looms like it will fit and should give real room for over clocking...

Yes, there is room to water cool this bad boy. If you go to the first 5-6 pages in this thread and I need to find the post, there was a guy that was working on custom water cooling his components in this case. Then he disappeared so we never saw or heard on his results. I think if I could just water cool my GPU, this would be one quiet system.

Using an ASUS Maximus VI Impact
Intel 4770K
16GB DDR3
2 x Samsung Hybrid HDD
1 x Intel NGFF SSD
Panasonic slot load Bluray burner
EVGA GTX 780ti
ASUS OC Panel - Will show me temps such.
Bitspower Water Tank Z 40mm reservoir.
Full water blocks for everything.
Standard water cooling equipment - custom no closed loop.

FrozenCPU has provided me (meaning I had to purchase from them LOL - I wish they provided me) with the water blocks and most of the water cooling accessories.

I'm using a swiftech MCRx20-QP "Quiet Power" Radiator

I'm going us the OC Panel outside the case plugged in via 4 USB cables.

I have also mounted an Xbox 360 controller receiver inside the case with the button soldered to the reset switch on the case.







I'll post more when I get my water block in. UPS lost the first one. I'm at a standstill until it comes in.

Djanice, you have any new updates and results on water cooling your setup in the RVZ01? There has been a lot of people wondering on the water cooling for this case and I think you might be the first brave soul that has taken a chance.

Any updated pics would be cool too?

I agree, i'd love to know if i could pull off a custom water cooling configuration in my RVZ01 with the Impact.

It looks like Djanice was on the way so hoping we hear back.

Hi All,

Registered to here as a result of reading this thread. I have been considering getting this case for a small computer to bring with me when traveling. I'd be hoping to fit the below components (or similar) and just wanted to check here to see if anyone spots an obvious issue I'll encounter. I had been considering an AIO water cooler for the CPU but from reading through the thread there seems to be some issues with kinking in the tubes.

1 x Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Tri-X 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card
1 x Intel Core i5-4670K 3.40GHz (Haswell) Socket LGA1150 Processor - OEM
1 x MSI Z87I Gaming AC Intel Z87 (Socket 1150) DDR3 ITX Motherboard
1 x TeamGroup Vulcan RED 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit (TLD316G1600HC9DC01)
1 x Western Digital Caviar Green 3TB SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache - OEM (WD30EZRX) HDD
1 x Silverstone Strider SFX Gold 450w '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply (SST-ST45SF-G)
1 x Silverstone SST-RVZ01 Raven Mini-ITX - Black
1 x Samsung 120GB SSD 840 EVO SATA 6Gb/s Basic - (MZ-7TE120BW)
1 x Noctua NH-L12 CPU Cooler

I noted Whoanelly's previous post regarding the very tight fit of the Noctua NH-L12 on the MSI board but I'd imagine in a case like this there's going to be tight fits regardless.

@ Whoanelly, did you have any issue fitting the GPU riser with the CPU cooler in place? I have heard that it's quite tight and may actually interfere with the PCI-E port.

I would very much welcome suggestions for alternative components if there are any issues with the above.
