Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 241

post #2401 of 7096
Thanks for the link - seen second post, even communicated with the person that did it - still these 80*15 mm fans are very expensive for me to get - up to 35-50$ for a fan - this is too much

Will the FTZ01 support the new SFX-L PSU with the quieter 120mm fan? I came across this new pic of the FTZ01 (on right) from this site, and it looks like it has a 120mm PSU fan cutout.

Doesn't the new PSU cutout from the pic above seem larger than the older pic below?


Is this correct?
Can anyone confirm? Any FTZ01 + SFX-L love?

I just got the ML07b a few days ago and the PSU cutout is tiny. So I cannot confirm the size of that cutout but on initial inspection it does look like its meant for a larger PSU fan.

Looks awesome. Congratulations. I am picking up my Gigabyte Windforce 980 G1 tonight and I can't wait.

i made the mistake of taking the NH-L12 cooler from Noctua thinking I have a slim fan at home and now I can't find the slim fan. So I installed my Noctua 120mm x 25mm outside of the case and its a bit noisy. Temperatures for a stock 4790 idle at 38 degrees which are not bad, but would be better if the fan was directly mounted on the cooler.

I just joined to add some possibly helpful things about my experience with this case

I've built maybe 3-4 PCs before, and swapped alot of video cards/ram/HDDs so i'm vaguely familiar with this stuff but i'd never built an htpc/itx system before, and I found it very frustrating - I think if I had to do it all over again it'd take me half the time because of the lessons I learnt - some of this stuff is probably super obvious to alot of you - but when I was searching the googles deciding on my build, I found this thread helpful for deciding on certain parts so maybe someone else will do the same

my build:
raven rvz01
Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev.B CPU Cooler
Corsair 16GB (2x8GB)
Corsair 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 Vengeance Pro
Seagate ST2000DX001 DESKTOP SSHD 2TB
Silverstone SOB02 SLOT-IN type Slim Blue Ray/DVD/CD Burner
Intel I5-4460
Gigabyte H97N-WIFI H97
SilverStone Black Cable Kit For SilverStone Modular PSUs
Asus STRIX-GTX970
ocz vertex 60gb SSD (old one I had floating around)
Silverstone ST45SF-G 450W SFX

points I learned:
1) plan ahead - i'm an impatient man, I wanted to get it built and start using it asap - caused me a lot of unneccessary headache
2) ram with big heatsinks is not going to fit underneath a scythe big shuriken cooler - I had to peel the heatsinks off my ram, which is doable, but nerve racking (its stuck on with glue) - I should have figured this one out beforehand, I had a similar issue once with a zalman cooler I had to ditch with a previous build
3)the asus strix does not fit in the case due to the fan enclosure of the card hitting the power cord as it exits the case - i really think they should move it lower in the case - I had to unscrew the power cord so it sticks out of the back of the case - I can live with this but others may not like this
4) i found the graphics card holder thing painful to install, I don't know whether I lost a screw or something, but none of the ones that I found with my case actually holds the graphics card holder to the expansion slot cover
5) my motherboard only had one system fan plug - and the cable kit does not come with any 3 pin fan power cables or adapters - I had to go back to purchase some
6) the instruction manual doesn't tell you to plug all your power cables into the psu before you install it - it may not be an issue if you don't install a 3.5 inch HDD to the bracket - but there's no way you're going to be able to plug them in once it's screwed in if you do - again, I should have figured that one out - its obvious if you look at it

still, after much frustration its now up and running - and its quiet, and its cool, and I now have my steambox/absurdlyoverpoweredhtpc - it's pretty well designed to fit so much in there and I do like the placement of the graphics card for cooling - but if you've never built a pc before or you're a bit of a noob like me, this is probably not the case to start with.

can't wait to get started with my steam collection from the comfort of the couch

Thanks for the insight. Could you please post a pic of the rear with the cord hanging out (plugged in, fully assembled)?

I purchased the Scythe Big Shuriken, but I am getting terrible temps right now. When using the Silent fan speed setting for my motherboard, my idle temp is 45C. When running Prime95 it peaks out to 92C.

I have an i7-4790S which is supposed to have a low TDP (65W). The heatsink should be seated properly because when I was putting it on I made sure it was on tight. I used Arctic Cooling MX-4 if it matters.

Any suggestions on what I can do to try to solve the high temps?

I purchased a Noctua NF-F12 to replace the stock fan, which will be coming this Saturday, but I am not sure if it will help that much.

Overall I am very disappointed in this heatsink right now.

System specs:

CPU: Intel i7-4790S
MB: ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac
MEM: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR31600 Low Profile
GPU: EVGA 02G-P4-3753-KR GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB
SSD: Crucial MX100 512GB x2

I just joined as I plan on building the following this weekend:

Case: Silverstone Raven RVZ01
PSU: Silverstone SFX Series SX600-G 600W
CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 Haswell Quad-Core 3.3GHz
GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5
Motherboard: ASUS Z97I-PLUS
HDD: Crucial MX100 512GB 6Gb/s Solid State Drive
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-L12
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz
Optical: Panasonic Slim DVD R/W
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM

I'll follow-up here after the build with any issues, GPU / CPU temps, etc. This is my first build in at least 17 years, so I'm not expecting things to go very smoothly, given the space restrictions!

Thanks to everyone else that posted comments here - this thread has been very helpful.

For those that have completed RVZ01 builds, should I just leave the case fans in the default configuration for optimal airflow/cooling, or did you find a different configuration works better? Should I think about getting a 3rd fan?

I'll likely use the top 120mm fan from the Noctua Cooler as a 3rd case fan.

SSD: Crucial MX100 512GB x2

Just wanted to update that I re-installed the heatsink and applied a different thermal paste and now the idle temps are ~32C in Silent mode. The temps when running Prime95 are still high ~92C. I am hoping that the Noctua will solve that. One of the reviews on Newegg highlighted the benefits of replacing the stock fan with another one.
