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

Yes, if you removed the dvd clip, there would plenty of room to mount 3 fans in there. Again, the problem might be that there isn't quite enough room on the edge to have a normal set of holes for mounting the 80mm fans. Would perhaps have to do something creative to attach the fans. I'm not removing the clip because I do have a DVD drive installed, that way I can take my computer outside and hook up my little LED projector and do outdoor movie night. smile.gif

Thanks about the cut! I do have a straight edge guide that came with my circle guide for the dremel I got on Amazon, I just didn't have anything nice and solid to mount the panel to for cutting. I may use that door trim stuff from Autozone to line the hole then find a mesh thingy from walmart and cut it up for finishing the top vent.

Attention @SilverStone!!!
Please revise the top panel to include additional venting! After cutting out the top, exhaust was much better. My gpu temps dropped an average of 3c (from 80c to 77c) and the drives dropped almost 10c (55c to 45c). The extra venting allows more of the heat from the GPU to escape easily and not build-up inside right above it and turn the top of the case into an oven.

I have a RVZ01 air cooled, I saw a deal online for EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-1996-KR 6GB HYBRID GAMING, "All in One" with an AIO water cooling set up. I was thinking of upgrading my graphics card now that I got a little bit of $$ to spend, and was wondering if this AIO cooler would fit in my RVZ01? Whats the best solution for a water cooled GPU in the Raven RVZ01 case? Keeping CPU air cooled.

@brawleyman

Using little metal angle with screw holes on each end into the side of the case and one for the fan might do the job

Might have to use black screws/paint the brackets to get rid of some ghetto score

You'll not be able to fit the EVGA hybrid. Besides there's an air cooling solution along with a radiator + fan. And you can't have both in the same space.

You'll have to go custom like this :
DCC pump, Bitspower 3.5 bay reservoir, VGA waterblock compatible with your GPU, a slim 240 radiator (EKWB Coolstream 240 or Magicool G2 slim) a pair of 120 mm slim fans (Stock fans or Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 12), some fittings, tube and liquid.

You'll be restricted to SFX PSU with this choice. With an SFX-L PSU, you'll not be able to place the DCC pump.

Here is a nice example posted a couple of days ago : http://www.overclock.net/t/1575102/sff-build-msi-980-ti-lightning-liquid-cooling-silverstone-ftz01

NB : in this build, the builder was able to use 25mm fans on the GPU side due to the type of VGA waterblock he is using. If you go for a full cover waterblock, I don't think you'll able to squeeze 25mm fans. And even if you can there would be a really tiny gap so airflow will not be good.

* I recently just changed my GPU in my ML07 case.

Now running an XFX R9 Fury. The GPU Heatsinks extend allong the entire length of the case, providng cooliing that exceeds the previous Gainward Phantom GTX 780 ti I had in there.

Average temps hover around 50-60c

The GPU has Throttle LEDS. They increase as the GPU throttles up. It a great way to reference the GPU status if need be.

Hi everyone, I'd like to install a blu ray player in my build. I have the ftz01 case. This is what I'm planning to get atm:

http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-UJ167-UJ-167-Ultra-Blu-ray/dp/B00EZ0FSIK

This might seem like a simple question, but what type of cable do I need to connect it? I assume it just needs a sata and a separate for power? Amazon is recommending that I buy this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009JXKQ9O/ref=pd_aw_fbt_147_img_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0D0MWV4XZD5Y4MBD7KR5

But I'm not clear how this cable works, does it replace the power cable? Also not sure if it would be long enough.

Drive wil be fine, the adaptor extends the connectivity as your sata and power cables plug into one end and the other into the drive

So you're saying that particular cable I listed will work in my build and case?

i have that cable in my RVZ01 build, so for the FTZ01 i foresee no issues
