I love the concept of Raven rvz01, however sfx psu was always my issue
Si I ended up with this 😀
Now before anyone ask for more I have very limited budget and the build is not going to be completed until maybe another month but plz take a look and slep me wink.gif
Who can guess the PSU?
EVGA Supernova 850? How did you manage to get it under the front panel USB 3.0 header card?
EDIT: the adapter cable for the two case fans is kind of strange. One of the heads goes [ x x x x ] where "x" is a pin, and the other goes [ x 0 x x ] where the "0" is a place with no pin, even though there is a slot for where a pin would be able to go. Is my adapter broken?

Lets make things simple all u need to do in 2 steps
My Rig so far
All u will need
- Raven RVZ01
- EVGA Supernova G2 850W
*Any other brand or make tools can be used*Step 1
Need to remove the screw supporting mounts for the SFX PSU, NOT THE MOTHERBOARD ONE
(don't know what they are called), use a Hacksaw blade(also uninstall all the cabling from the case front panel, fans not to cut anything)
Use the rasps to remove any sharp edges left from the process
*JUST BE EXACT*Step 2
Place the PSU with the "L" shape power plug attached in to the case. Take a close look where the plug is located; cut out a side panel exactly in the same position(Picture explains it better), i have realized that much more can be cuted out then just this tiny bit
Again make sure no sharp edges will be let behinde
The reason for this step is that the PSU is 180MM long; the "L" shape power cord is adding another 14mm to the PSU
So the result is this :FAQ:Why do i need to cut the case ?
Otherwise The PSU will not fit under the front panel cablingCan a still use the plastic side panel after the cut out and the PSU is in position?
YES the plastic side panel fits back nicely
*Once The side panel is going to be placed back to the case you will need to remove the PSU to be able to detach the side panel in the future which isn't an easy process
*What about PSU Cable management, Motherboard installation GPU and the Heatsink
I am ot that far
But some tips:
The PSU installed it can be moved around aprox 2-3 mm so i am sure (cant confirm) that the MB will fit in
Cable Management well it is a Full Modular PSU the there is a plenty cables to chose from;cables are flexible not too long
Heatsink cant advice at this stage the PSU is mounted that it will be an exhoust which in eco mode is inactive up to 45C
So the final result of installing the PSU in to the caseAlso great tips picture and advice's from Patrick on hes web site please visit as well
Thank you All please share your ideas
PS.: Is the 850 not a overkill ? It is
