Thanks! haha, yeah the cosmos is quite the big case! And I hung the fans by their cord in the garage and painted them with krylon fusion black spay paint. It worked out great! It looks much more sleek now.

Man, this is all abt relativity and choosing components wisely. Gainward Phantom gtx 780 is pushing all hot air INSIDE the case. Get a most silent turbine exhaust cooler(think nvidia GPUs are better with reference than AMD) and you are set, temps should be lower.
As alternative to get GTX770 or R9 280X or lower TDP cards will work relatively quiet. With this case it is possible to get inaudible system while doing surfing and office tasks, and low humming on gaming loads.

I would echo Sader0 above. I have a reference EVGA GTX 780 installed in this case and I haven't seen the temps pass 75c. And that's with a fan speed of 40%.

Double ditto to the temps, EVGA 780ti SC ACX with 2 Noctua NF-F12s in the case doesn't go past 72c no matter what I throw at it.

Gamedaz, I read your posts and immediately facepalm. You've asked for peoples advice about a RVZ01 build before, and people have given you some great advice (myself included), and yet you insist on just going ahead with building your rig as you see fit.

I don't have a problem with people like yourself building your own systems however you want to build them, but I do have an issue when people like yourself ask for assistance, then totally disregard any assistance you've been given.

If you don't want to take other peoples advice on board, don't ask for their advice.

Everything you've just spoken about has been previously addressed.

Perhaps more concerning is that you're going to try use a custom-cooled 780 Ti in such a restricted case. You should really be looking at a reference 780 Ti instead

I very seriously doubt you'll pull 450watts with whatever system you intend to use. You won't be overclocking that GPU due to the lack of extra cooling provided by the RVZ01, and you wont be doing high-voltage overclocking on the CPU due to the lack of space for high-TDP coolers. If you want to do some sort of highly overclocked system actually requiring 50A on the 12v rail, getting a different case with more airflow and support for larger heatsinks would be a better option. Let me demonstrate below:

1. A reference GTX 780 Ti system draws 380w in Unigine Valley at the wall.

2. Efficiency for the SFX 450w PSU we're talking about is roughly 90%

3. Factoring in PSU efficiency, 380w * 90% = 342w...

4. The system is therefore requiring the PSU to produce 342w in the hardest, real-world, scenario almost any gamer would come across.

5. Regarding Amps, 342Watts * 12Volt (you're using the 12 volt rail) = 28.5Amps

The system is therefore requiring the PSU to produce 28.5A on the 12Volt rail.

* I dunno I'm still experimenting with my setup> gonna see what else is out there right now> been looking at the XFX R9 290X and maybe rerouting the power cable> but dunno yet> If the 600W PSU would hit the market now> my frustrations would probably end there...lol.



ADDED: and if your above calculations are correct then for some reason my card needs 42A just to turn on.(Enter a Game)mad.gif


GTX Reference Cards seems to require a whole lot less power just to be able to enter a game> but I think they come with only 6 VRMS Mine has a total 10 VRMS.> They must suck alot of juice.

Is your period key broken? Seriously. What's up with the > at every sentence break?

* This just turned into a sad place. LOL.


Enjoy your builds!
