As mentioned in the gpu chamber there are small support brackets in each corner. The support bracet in the pci bracket corner will most likely make contact with the strix so it will have to be removed. The gpu support bracket will most likely give you issues as well since the strix is tall and wide.

Reckon it could be "massaged" so it could fit? wink.gif

Not possible the 750 has a thick heatsink on it which doubles the size of a standard 2.5" ssd. The other option you have is to mount it in the gpu chamber but you will need a short gpu to have accomplished that.

Ah ha, stroke of brilliance! I will cut out the top of the panel so that it includes every bit of the existing venting then clean up the edges real nice. Then, go to WM and grab a wire mesh thing like this below and cut it up so that it covers the entire opening. Then, if I feel the need, I can drill holes and mount 80mm fans beneath the mesh to help suck out the hot air.



Now I just need to find a way to secure the panel so that I can make a clean cut with my dremel and straight edge guide.

Howdy folks,
Was doing some study today and had a bit of an epiphany.
Most of the GPU coolers today have the 0dB fan feature where the fans dont spin.
In an RVZ02/ML08, there are no case fans to provide the incidental airflow that usually keeps the air moving around the card.

It would be interesting to see what difference there is if you force the card to run at ~25% or something when idle (where it should be silent anyway)
This should reduce the thermal gradient and make a little bit of difference. ---> basically is harder to cool a card once it is already hot than to keep it at the same temperature

Someone volunteer for science? biggrin.gif

That's not necessarily the problem. Even if you have the fans going at idle, they are keeping the front of the card with you core and such cool. The problem lies in heat generated from the BACK of the card. When you remove the filtered vent or have the fans going faster it just makes it so it takes longer to reach the high temps. To properly cool a gpu you either need fans blowing air across the back of the card, or in the case of the ML08/RVZ02, have a way to pull the hot air out. Right now the venting on top of the case isn't enough to exhaust that hot air out properly to keep it from heating up the case.

I do wish @SilverStone provided better cooling in the end panels or perhaps revised the panel with a lot more venting. Only thing I can think of why it is on the opposite side of where the gpu is is because they were worried the top vent would expel air pretty close to the side vents and the gpu could possibly recycle some of that hot air from outside the case.

Okay, so a large vent will work, but you will only be able to fit 2 slim 80mm fans on top because of the tool-less clip for the DVD drive. That white box is a template I made for 3 80mm fans together that is 15mm thick.

Thats good to know. But I bet the two 80mm fans will do the job real nicely with an open mesh.

I think I'll drill additional vents this weekend but I'll hold off on cutting out a rectangle for fans and a mesh... for now.

Ohhh THATS what that thing is for... lol! I would just pop out the plastic box and fold the tabs down... use some screws to mount the drive if you really need to secure it better. That will give you the clearance you need for a third fan. Besides, if you are taking a Dremel to your case, keeping things "tool-less" should not be a priority for you... tongue.gif

If anyone is wondering about airflow in the ML08 filtered, I run a Gigabyte Windforce card, which expells exhaust perpendicular to the card. A lot of exhaust is vented directly below the intake area of the same panel. The rest of the card's exhaust is pushed to the top of the case where it exhausts through seams in the case and the vent holes above the drive mounts. Just fyi.

Phase 1 done! I cut the rectangular opening on top. Please excuse the not perfectly cut lines or corners, I'm still learning about my dremel and I didn't have anything nice to hold the panel to while cutting. Next phase will be finding a decent mesh, cut to size and glue to the inside of the panel. Also, find something nice to line the opening with the hide the unsightly cut. smile.gif

It does look like something creative will have to be done to mount the 80mm fans because the original vents were pretty close to the edge, therefore there isn't enough space to drill the holes properly. I think just having the additional venting with a nice mesh will do the trick.

Let the testing comence!

Not having access to one of these cases... would it be possible to install 3 fans if you removed / cut out the DVD drive clip? I know a lot of users here will go with an external DVD drive if needed.

Hey... free handing a cut with a Dremel tool is no easy task. Without a jig or guide to hold the tool steady, you did a great job! I've made similar mods (adding mesh / screen) to computer cases and have always used a hot glue gone to attach it to the inside of the case. Not to worry about the hot glue melting if the case gets hot during gaming... the case would have to be on fire to melt the high strength hot glue. biggrin.gif
