TLDR, I cut open areas to fit the 500w silverstone inside the GPU chamber to fit a 140 radiator in the power supply area.
Going from the huge HAF X to the RVZ02 meant putting it on my desk instead of the floor, which meant hearing the GPU fans more.
So I ended up getting a Gigabyte ITX card with the small EK waterblock that just covers processor, 120mm Scythe sleeve fan to cool the other chips (not shown in night photos). Do not skip this fan if you use a processor waterblock. The small chips easily get to over 100c in seconds without a fan. I might get a full cover one if I found a compatible one.
CPU XSPC raystorm with orange leds, (using one of the leds in the EK block). I think the frosted EK waterblocks look nicer so I would grab one of those for CPUs if I did this again assuming it would fit.
Swiftech Micro Rev2 res with mounting tabs cut off to the right of the cpu, and Swiftech MCP50X Pump below cpu which fits fairly well, just a bit of noise from it even on low. Welcome other suggestions.
Took the very tall heatspreaders off my ram so they are bare which bought me a little more room.
I have two intel ssd's in RAID 0 and I wrapped the cords through the pci-e extension to save space. Obviously the new msata drives would be great to have instead.
I cut a larger opening to move the powersupply next to my Gigabyte ITX card for the 140mm Alphacool radiator / Thermaltake Riing fan. Behind the radiator there is about a 4-5 cm of room for air flow already between the GPU door and motherboard back wall but a small square hole to pass through. I also enlarged this opening behind the radiator to open it up for more airflow (not pictured). I also enlarge the wire passthrough that the normal PSU cable goes through to fit the bottom of the radiator).
Used 24 pin and 8 pin motherboard power extensions that run through the bottom wire pass.
I drilled a one inch hole with a cheap diamond bit for the GPU tubing to run through with rubber grommet from another case.
The Riing fan controller is double stick taped to the back of the power supply but you could still put a CD rom drive there otherwise.
So after all that I thought the clear windows made all the lighting look terrible which I didn't take a photo of but you can see that it looks white from any angle due to the cutouts.
Grabbed two 12"x12" honeycomb modders mesh from MNPC, cleaned with paint thinner, lightly sanded, and used black self etching primer on it as they recommend. It's easy to bend with some clamps and right angle surface like a desk. Only needed to cut one side per mesh to fit it. The excess just goes down behind the door.
Temps for GPU (overclocked 100hz GPU / 528 mem) are about 55 C load with the fan at 20% after 20 minutes of heaven benchmark. 28 C idle. There is a very thin MNPC fan filter between the fan and the radiator that I can blow out from the back of the radiator. I could be wrong about the 20% because I'm splitting a fan header with the pump because this motherboard has the CPU fan header stuck at 100% and I can't figure it out, but it is silent.
CPU is i5 4590 processor at 3.8ghz. Asus Z97I motherboard.
I think it came out much quieter and better looking than stock and blasts a honeycomb pattern on the wall which you can see in one of the photos. I'd like to find some RGB 3mm LEDs since the 140mm fan is RGB in case I get bored of orange. The color is a lot more rich and consistent in person.Edited by blasko229 - 2/14/16 at 6:07pm
