Why change to the RVZ02? It just seems to take too many sacrifices in comparison to the rvz01. And its only a little less deep

I got that itch! Plus my 280x overheats horribly and throttles to half its speed in my 01, think it's more a problem with the card than the case.

Using the Scythe Big Shuriken 2 CPU coller works like a charm. Idle around 20C-24C. Can remember on load. Around 40C No biggies. My big problemo is the 390. JESUS that card can go loud at heavier loads. Played a little Dragon Age Inqusition. Gone up to 80C and become a vaccum cleaner. 80C is fine in my book. But the loudnes my man. Ivgot the OC version wich is tweaked to 1040mhz If I put it back to 1015 will it help? If so how can i? Or any solution for noise? I live in a triple room, so late night gaming session can be annoying for them biggrin.gif

Also my other question wich is not related to the case but I fell like a computer noob and you guys a demigods. So, Can I ask how partition a drive in a way that only used for windows and and never be touched? No program setting it up defoulft for it that drive. Basicly setting up a different default drive.

Edit: If you choose to use the Gigabyte GA-Z170N Wi-Fi Motherboard with the Scythe Big Shuriken 2 cooler with the RVZ02. Try to plug the case front usb cable first somehow. After you install the cooler its inpossible. I dont know if its even possible to install it with this cooler in my opinion. Didnt tried...

This got me worried.
I am thinking about a rvz02 with window and a sapphire 390x tri-x.
Maybe it is a bad idea and I should just go for a larger case with more ventilation.
Any other experience with amd cards and the rvz02?

Cheers

AR06 and NH-L9i are a little weak. More suited for a TDP of 65W.

I would go for the AXP100R personally.

Thanks for the list. Any idea what the differences between the AXP-100, AXP-100 Muscle, and AXP-100R are?

I plan to use this cooler on the non-windowed version of the rvz02. I am just on the gathering the parts stage though...

In fact the actual heatsink height is lower on the Gabriel just so they can accommodate its thicker fan, 20 mm high fan on the Gabriel vs 15 mm on the Scythe Big Shuriken.

This looks like a really good choice! It's a pretty good price. Any idea how it performs?

It actually beats the AXP-100 in this review. Both flat out and in PWM mode. Its a shame they didn't compare it with the Scythe Big Shuriken 2. Couldn't find reviews were both cooler are compared. But I think it would be close though. In my opinion the Shuriken has the edge in heatsink design (5 heatpipes versus 4) but the Gabriel will have the advantage in blowing a lot more air simply because it has the thicker fan.

A word of caution. Please note I haven't heard anyone use this cooler on the rvz02. I only thought about it since the zalman CNPS8900 was tried successfully on the rvz02 and it was 60mm high. Documentation on the Gabriel states it is 60 mm high but if you notice in the pictures there is a mounting clip that sits on top of the cooler. The rvz02 windowed version would I think cut it pretty close in terms of case clearance but I am hoping the non-windowed version would have enough clearance to spare.

No. didnt try. I might but a windowed panel just for the GPU. When I wrote my comment that last night. It was quet in the room and the case was if ront of me. Now put under my desk gpu facing the wall. Also capped the framrate so it wont go crazy 80C. Im gettin at temps at max load around 75C. So its all right. And the become a lot more better noise wise. I was expecting better but hey. This is the trade of for getting r9 390 over the gtx 970 I guess. I am using headphones anyway. Checked the other cornes of the room if its audible for my buddys, barely. So its fine.

So dismiss the vaccum cleaner effect.

Hi you can fit the psu very tight without doing anithing.
I cut some parts from the frame to fit it perfect.
I will post some photos next week when i disassamble the system to do a fiew more modds

You would have no problem with that cooler in the filtered version, there is enough room to be comfortable with, especially with those clips. The windowed version would be so risky and is uncomfortably close as it is with the Zalman. You have to consider manufacturing tolerances too, what might barely work in one case won't in another.

I have the filter on the PSU/CPU side, but took it off on the gpu because of how mine expels air and only has the single fan.

I would say the filtered version has room enough for a 62mm cooler, but windowed probably needs to stick with 59mm for safety.

It would be possible to go with 15mm thick 120mm fan 140mm fan with 120 holes as default fan is 20mm thick.

Didn't really that much lol.

I ran my front header cables a below the psu. Helped me a lot.
