You really worrying me mate :/ I'm going for 390 inside ml08... Maybe there is something wrong with the card/fans? I was expecting high 70 but 94? Also how did you found installing the card?

@crystaal its made of metal. was able to take it off using a pair of pliers but it will leave a hole.

I removed the ssd cage on the left and bended flat all metal left overs to give way for the 2 3.5 hdds.

I drilled a total of 6 screw holes for hdd mounting.

If i only had dremel then to cut and drill then this mod can be made in 10-15 mins 😀😀😀 Note that i made this mod using basic tools.

First time I've ever done any modding, and I have to say, I have a lot more respect for the guys who can pull this stuff off so professionaly. I added 2 120mm fans to lower my temps and the results are fantastic. Even running unigine maxed out for twenty minutes and my 980ti couldn't break 73C. Only thing I wish I had done differently was to take more time to polish on her, maybe repainted the case, but overall came out well. And I really am starting to like the windows more except that I can see a shining red light from the mobo which kind of aggravates me. Now to wait and see if anyone has found a better cpu cooler to overclock skylake with.

Just did a system changeover into the RVZ02B windowed version. Thought I should share that a Sapphire 390 Nitro fits fine with plenty of room between the 2.2 Slot cooler and the window. No risk of fans touching the window, and close enough that only fresh air is being pulled in.

Is there a big difference in cooling between the rvz01 and the rvz02?
Mainly in the GPU chamber?
Also, does the rvz02 fit a GPU a small bit bigger than two slots like the sapphire 390x tri-x?

Cheers

Yes. No additional fan mounts for the GPU in the RVZ02.

Also, yes. I just posted about the Sapphire 390 Nitro which is 2.2 Slots. The 390X is the exact same. Both are 42.3mm wide, and fit just fine. See image above your post.

My 390 nitro under stock fan profile, while running Unigen Valley for 10 minutes using the Extreme HD profile peaks at 76C. VRMs are at 84C and 89C respectively. These temps are all safe and acceptable, especially given the space constraints such a powerful and high wattage card.

Thank you.
It's good to know the GPU fits.
In regard to cooling, does the rvz02 do a good job? Or is the rvz01 a safer bet?
I know amd cards are known to get quite hot.

Cheers

It does as good a job that such a small case can do. I wouldn't run a highly overclocked CPU in the RVZ02. I have a Thermolab/Cooltek LP53 on order for my 4690k, since I'm currently using the stock HSF due to size limitations.

My 390 nitro under stock fan profile, while running Unigen Valley for 10 minutes using the Extreme HD profile peaks at 76C. VRMs are at 84C and 89C respectively. These temps are all safe and acceptable, especially given the space constraints such a powerful and high wattage card.

I had a reference 970 with an EVGA 980 Hybrid water cooler before, in a different case. Sold the 970 since I really liked the look of the 390 Nitro, and since the 390 slightly outperforms the 970. The Async compute performance on the AMD cards has shown to be superior so far for DX12, which was another factor. The 970 and 390 are basically sidegrades to another, but I wanted the Nitro. A 970 would have better temps in the RVZ02, but neither will be in unsafe territory.

An RVZ01 has far superior cooling options,such as the aforementioned fan mounts to help cool the GPU, and suppose for an AIO CPU cooler. But, the RBZ02 is sleeker, smaller, and in my opinion there's no contest which one looks better - the RVZ02.

Edit - Additonally, If you want to build in the RVZ02, you really should think out and plan your build around it. I went from,an NCASE M1, so I already had nearly everything I needed that would fit. If you're going to run a 390/390X with a K-sku Haswell/Devil's Canyon CPU, you'll want to be safe and run the Silverstone SX600-G. You could ok,with their 500-L SFX PSU if you went with an Nvidia card, or a 390/390X with a locked i5/i7 from either Haswell or Skylake.

I'm very pleased with my build, although I do plan to sell my 4690K and Maximus VII Impact as to go with a locked i5 Skylake CPU, for even lower thermals. Just plan ahead, ask as many questions as you want, and know it's a VERY easy case to build in. Cable management will not be an issue.

RVZ01 should be a safer bet for the GPU. Reviews are not able to demonstrate that the GPU tends to overheat inside the RVZ02. But non of them tried powerful GPU inside. And we have some people complaining about GPU's heat here.

RVZ01 manage heat quiet well though. Lots of people used with powerful GPU without any problem.

Honestly I should have went with rvz01. I think both look good the 02 a bit better than the 01. But the 01 has more cpu cooler room, hdd support, and most importantly support for case fans to cool powerful gpus.
