Those spec'ed parts look just fine, the only thing I would change is the HDD, the seagates tend to run fairly hot to begin with, and since in the RVZ you put it right onto the psu, it's gonna get warmer, I would look at a Western Digital HDD, and I would recommend an SSD as the primary. Just my 2cents.gif

As to those little pumps, I've personally never used one, but I've heard nothing but bad stuff about them. Do a search here on the OCN, and you will see that almost every post with them is negative. And at 76$US, it's not really a "deal" it is tiny though. But the bare DDC would do better in this situation I think.


But this build only a 120 rad will fit?

+with the corsair h60 can I loop gpu with it? If I get the tubes

And if I get 120m LED fans would you notice anything? With that statement out how in you opinion are the standard fans,


Thx

Has anyone being able to run the included case fans under 100%. I am building my system and I am doing some cooling tests right now, and only using the intel cooler in the i5 4570S. The only components I am waiting for (i have not decided yet) is a better cpu air cooler and the video card (waiting to see if a newer Nvidia Maxwell card shows up).

My motherboard is a MSI B85i that has two 4 pin headers, one CPU _fan and one sys_fan. The Bios gives me an option to select low and high speeds, but the fan runs 100% all the time and it is too noisy.

My only guess is that the pin is PWM only and not voltage regulated needed for the 3 pin Silverstone case fan. I can't find any documentation for that. Any thoughts?

PS: Great builds guys, congrats on your systems.

The RVZ01 will fit a thin 240mm rad, I wouldn't run a 120mm rad only for a CPU & GPU loop in any case, let alone this one.

I know folks have modded the corsair H-series coolers to change tubing and add things to the loop, but I've never done that personally, and I honestly wouldn't, I'd rather do it the proper way with a custom loop.

If the LED fans are mounted to the panels themselves, you see the glow from them. I think the included thin fans are a great little fan and work well.

I was a bit worried as I have an MSi board which has the socket very close to the PCI slot unlike the ASUS board below.
However I thought I'd try it in this orientation first and it worked fine! The hardest & most important part is to zip-tie your tubing down to the mounting hardware.



I'm currently running some CFD simulations for University but I'll get you a picture when I'm done.
Temps look good to thumb.gif

Do you have any kinks with the tubes? My ASRock mobo has the CPU socket right by the PCI-e slot like your MSI board does.

It looks like going custom cooling with this case might really be the way to go if you want water to cool things down since I feel like the AIO's have too much tubing that gets in the way.

What are everyone else's GPU temps with this case?

I have a 4770k 780ti combo in mine and my 780ti is reaching into the 90s on some games.

I replaced the bottom case fans with 2x Gentle Typhoon AP-15s. I have them forced to 100%, and the fan on my 780ti(blower style) is also reaching 100% with my custom curve.

How do you have your case oriented? My GPU (680) really benefited from a vertical case orientation. I know that doesn't work in a component rack in a home theater cabinet. Either way I can't help but think the case could use some form of active exhaust. For high end components it needs a directed air flow imo

Vertical,

Fairly sure the fan is dead in my 780ti. EVGA Precision X reports 0 RPM no-matter the fan%. Sounds like its time to RMA.

I agree, I wonder over time how components will perform in this case if things are not kept cool enough. I have mine set horizontally, and so far with temps its not bad, but my complaint is that there is no perfect cooler that will work with this case that can give you a piece of mind (at least mine, lol!).

I'm really hoping that we see similar designs from Corsair, Cooler Master, Fractal, etc. as with some tweaks this could be an awesome case. I still think if this had another inch or two of height it would help with a few things like coolers, not just being limited to one HDD, etc. I guess this is a start.

I hope that Silverstone takes a look at the Bolt II, those guys have done some really cool things there with their chassis. I've also been considering trying out the 250D, really like the no compromise nature of the case.

That does suck if the fan(s) is dead on the card. Probably why the card is hitting 290X heat territory.

Anyone know when the ML07 is coming out? I want to use one for an HTPC/Gaming rig, plenty of time though as I'm only planning on playing Elder Scrolls Online with it.

Only scoop I could get says late Q2 or early Q3, that was the most solid answer I could get/pry out of my sources. thumb.gif
