I can't speak for Capt Zombie, but when I tried the Kuhler 620, it kinked the tubing so bad I didn't feel safe keeping it on there. All the AIO coolers I tried that had the "flexible rubber" tubing did the same thing, the original style ribbed polymer tubing seems to do better in the RVZ; with some fiddling, the CM Seidon 120M work really well (see the pics I posted from earlier in the thread).

Sorry I've been away folks, life does that though. Waiting on taxes, then gonna do a full loop on this system. But, I'm gonna run a 45mm rad and mount the fans externally I think. I want more fluid capacity in the system, and I think it will help the temps a bit. We will see.

Or, do you folks want me to try and fit a full loop with a thinner rad and try to get everything inside?

Everything inside please!

And a parts list!

Still observing this thread as the days go by...

I was wondering if anyone had a Bitfenix Prodigy to compare with in size next to the RVZ01? I'd love to see a screenshot with the cases side-by-side so I could gauge how it'd work for me!

Hi Guys

H75 doesn't really fit this case with an impact VI. The daughterboards on the impact get in the way of a lot of CPU coolers too. Even if you could get it to fit with a 15mm fan, it's just not worth it.

The Noctua NH-L12 fits the Impact VI great, but only with with the 92mm fan on the bottom. Also, the 120mm fan will not fit on the top with the lid on. However, the 15mm fan that comes with the RVZ01 fits great and, secured to the door of the case, is well positioned.

Noise is very manageable once you control the fans with the fan controller software that comes with the impact VI. I used the Low Noise fan adapter that comes with the NH-L12 with the included 92mm fan and attached the Silverstone 15mm fan directly to a chassis fan port (splitter didn't work as well).

Hi Guys, well Ive got my RVZ01 and Asus Impact VI mother board and now I'm just trying to work out what to do about CPU cooling. Which appears the be the biggest challenge with this case. Currently I'm just running the intel stock fan and I can clearly hear the sucker from 3 metres away behind a cabinet door when under load!

Gabriel 5, when you say noise is very manageable with the NH-L12 can I ask what do you mean? And what sort of temperatures are you getting?

Jim- I see you've managed to get the CM seidon 120M to fit on an ASrock mother board (thanks for sharing!), any feeling for how this might go on the Asus? Also are the 120M's an older AIO as it seems they are not very available in Australia (most places list them as out of stock), while the 120V is plentiful. Would these mount the same as they have the same tubing (even though one is a square block as opposed to a circle) or is there some other benefits to tracking down a 120M over the 120V?

If anyone is using the NT06-Pro in this case, what sort of results (temp/noise ) are you guys getting?

Cheers Guys

Like Jim had mentioned, I had seen some of the results even with the Antec where the flexible rubber tubes were kinking. The luck that I have, it would happen to me where there would be some kind of leak or the AIO tubing would burst due to the kinking so I didn't want to chance it. Even the issues with a lot of the air cooling just kind of turned me off. I'll wait it out and see how things go with this case and what people do with it.

I'm seeing mid 30s to low 40s for the CPU at idle depending on the ambient temperature. That's with both fans at about 1000 RPM. I haven't stress tested it yet or anything like that but I have the 92mm fan set to increase to 1300 RPM and the 120mm fan set to increase to 1500 RPM as the CPU temp approaches 85 degrees. Im pretty sensitive to sound and I find the noise to be ok. Its never going to be like an ft02 or something, but it's tolerable. I'll try measuring the db with my phone tomorrow.

The advantage of the noctua is that it can accommodate twice the fan depth (40mm) compared to the nr06 pro. If you could fit a 25mm fan on the nr06 then it might be the better pick.

Does anyone own a SG05 as well? I would like to see side-by-side photos. I got $90 on amazon and I'm really torn between this and SG08. (Currently own a SG05)

If you get time, could you stress test for an hour or so and post temps? Very curious how well that cooler does under load.

Thanks for adding me.

Sometimes, if you look through a thread, you find the answer. I posted that pic in post #39 of this thread. Honestly, the hardware capabilities in air cooling are very similar between them, and in fact, I will probably be moving my LAN rig back into an SG06 at some point. Aside from fitting a 240 rad vs a 120 rad, the liquid cooling is about the same also.

The SG08 is kind of a hard sell, psu choices are pretty limited if you use a card with power to game on 1080p/1200p ultra. And you don't really get much more hardware availability over an SG05/06 even though the case is more than twice the size basically.
