Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 352

The Titan X hits the card hardline at 80 c under heavy load. I've not noticed any throttling, but I don't like the temps that high (although apparently this is the normal operating range? At least so it seems from most overclocking discussions). The riser compartment seems to work as a sort of thermal shield as well, so it doesn't cook the cpu, and the air coming out of the case is pretty warm. At idle, everything chirps along around 40c (a little bit higher than most reviews found... I'm chocking that up to my hot-ass Texas house and the small case). I tried a more aggressive fan profile and it cut down temps a lot (~10c), but this is my living room computer, so I'd prefer it to stay silent. Overall, I'm looking forward to getting it all under water, but not looking forward to the logistics of doing it.

Hello guys

I am sure this was here 100th times, Could anyone advise on this

I need a quiet case Fan 120x120x15
Yes a slim quite low RPM fan
Not much of them are on the market thanks for the advice

I am using this one for case fan over motherboard. It is 140mm fan with 120mm mounting and also PWM so you should be able to reduce RPM to suit your need.

I tried the Prolimatech 120mm vortex, and found it too loud (whooshing noise, or stop/starts when set to very low speeds); bear in mind that I have a very quiet set-up such that hard-drives are by far the loudest component). The Silverstone FW-121 fan is quieter than the 120mm Prolimatech with probably similar air-flow/pressure (maybe a little less).

I just posted a review/build notes here (may not show up yet):

In short:
* you can get creative with graphics card cooling for a quieter set-up
* the two hard-drive mounts near the PSU are best avoided

I thought I should share my recent arrangement inside the RVZ01. Using the below components, I had managed to achieve the following attachment. Quite close I would say. Around 2mm from the radiator to the RAM. So now the CPU is cooled using AIO in a pull arrangement. When I tried using just push arrangement, feels like the air wasn't really escaping through the chassis grill. Maybe if you sealed up all the gaps between the fan, radiator and the panel, it would work.Currently my CPU temp is just around 40C, my ambient temp is the normal equatorial weather.

My idle CPU temps are generally under 30°C with very little noise (Silverstone FW-121 mounted on the case in a positive-pressure arrangement, and Noctua NH-L12 heatsink). I don't see the point of water cooling in this case. Probably lower ambient temps here (maybe 15-18°).

Dude, I'm in equatorieal, ambient maybe 25 to 34 C. That's roughly 8 to 10 C difference with ambient temperature , yours is around 13 C to 15 C. I'm jealous though.

Physical id

What's the point of water cooling when you want the heatsink mounted right above the CPU anyway?

I said my temps were under 30 C. That is roughly a 10 C difference:
Code:
0:  +27.0°C  (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 0:         +27.0°C  (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1:         +25.0°C  (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 2:         +26.0°C  (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 3:         +23.0°C  (high = +80.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

Still, sounds like your set-up is effective.

It arrived earlier than I'd expected, but it does give me a chance to tweak what I'm ordering, which is nice. Friday is pay day, so parts will get ordered then, hooray!

Hi, looking for some advice on an upcoming RVZ01 build. I've been scouring the web for the best graphics card I can find under £200, and I've come across this =>

http://www.sapphiretech.com/presentation/product/product_index.aspx?pid=2131&lid=1

Sapphire Radeon R9 280X Vapor-X OC 3072MB

The only problem is; it's massive, coming in at 308mm X 108mm X 35mm. This just about fits the RVZ01 length requirements, but I'm wondering if it will run into other issues with the GPU holder.
Also, I know that 280x's run hot, but this appears to be one of the best aftermarket coolers there is. will it overheat in the little raven?
