On the RVZ02 there are no 120mm fan mounts so no place to mount the rad/fans

EDIT. Sorry just looked back through posts and you are looking at the FTZ01 not the RVZ02.

Yes the TD03-Slim will fit and it looks like a nice cooler BUT all reviews I have seen say it's no good with any overclocks or hot running CPUs, the RAD just can't get rid of the heat because it's thin.

Another AIO that fits is the corsair H55

I am getting the FTZ01 actually. Would it be fine in your opinion?

Here is a review of the cooler http://3dgameman.com/reviews/1754/silverstone-tundra-td03-slim-liquid-cpu-cooler

Silverstones AIO are very good quality, Had the original Tundra TD03 in my old system and it was great at cooling but it was around 40mm thick.
As long as where you have the pc has good cool air flow the cooler should be a good choice

I am glad you suggested the G1 gaming because this is the exact GPU I have settled on after a couple days of research for the 980TI with best passive cooling AND great performance.

One thing that I still haven't gotten a reply is the CPU cooling solution. I have found on some other forums, someone using the TD03-Slim (water/liquid cooling). Would you recommend this or the Scythe Shuriken?

Cheers!

Hey not a problem!
Any information on here is for all to benefit!

The G1 Gaming has a big ol' heatsink that is actually longer than the card, and so should have maximum surface area to dissipate hear, its rated at 600W TDP, which is more than what most entire systems consume, but thats 10% theoretical maximum and 90% marketing

however Im not sure how well the card will boost if you are going to put it in an RVZ02 stock.
It will perform just fine and is factory overclocked anyway so dont be afraid!

Like I said, if your RVZ02 is stock, you have nowhere to mount a fan or radiator on the outside shell
However, with the windowed version, it looks like the screws may be able to sit in the ventilation slots just find, only need to make sure the rad+fan+waterblock height is less than about 60mm overall.
With the FILTERED version, you can do a similar thing after punching some holes in the inner mesh.
However, Im not sure how well these panels will hold the weight of the radiator and fan!

Actually I am getting the FTZ01 case.

Your comment regarding mounting the radiator/fan on the outside shell is regarding the TD03 right? The FTZ01 already comes with two 120mm case fans. Do you think I'll be able to use the TD03 Slim in that case?

Edit : actually I just got my answer.

They actually recommend the TD03 for that case thumb.gif

As for the noctua L9i and the shuriken, I had the noctua and I wasnt really happy with the temperatures. After alot of reasearch it simply turned out that it is not that good for high tdp cpus. Its not that much better than the boxed coolers except its more silent.
So I bought the shuriken and im very happy with the temperatures. (Shuriken is even cheaper).
It is a kinda unfair comparison though, because the shuriken is at least 50% bigger than the noctua.

You might want to try the larger noctua cooler, but then you have to take off one of the fans or change it to a slim one(discussed few post earlier)

cheers man!


NICE! Would you happen to have a link to which shuriken model?

Thanks for the info. Would you recommend the G1 over a the standard NVIDIA reference card? I had the Windowed version and just hated how cheap it looked. And I am a fan of dust fliters lol I no where have your talent as far as case modding but I try to think creatively. smile.gif Just a little concerned about those temps lol. I wonder what silverstone was thinking when it came to designing the RVZ02? I mean I love the look of both but clearly the before cools better right.

To follow up on my previous post made a little while back, I have completed my travel build for the ML08.

Specs
CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 06G-P4-4995-KR
Cooler: SilverStone Argon Series AR06
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB
PSU: SILVERSTONE SX500-LG

Monitor: ASUS VN247H-P 23.6"

Travel Case: Pelican iM2950 Storm Case


The monitor was the slimmest I could find. It's super annoying that all the words you can search for with respect to a monitor: thin, narrow, small form factor, etc can also be used to describe the bezel. In this application, I care nothing for the bezel so it was pretty frustrating and took a lot of hunting around to settle on the monitor I chose. Worse still, because of the way the case foam works (4 or 5 seperate layers of foam on top of each other that can be customized individually) I could have botched the build by getting a monitor that was too thick. Luckily, this one works just fine for my needs.

The case wasn't the smallest I could find that fit my dimensions, but it was the cheapest oddly enough. I'm 6' tall, and the travel case comes up to my waist. The width is the bigger problem. It's just a bit too wide to easily fit through doors without bumping into things. I blame the ML08 more than the case. The ML08 is pretty big all things considered. Its advantage is how thin it is, but for my need I think something more cubic would suit better. Then, I could get an appropriately smaller monitor and get away with a more travel-able case. That said, the whole set up is fantastic and has already made an 8 hour trip by car in freezing weather excellently.

I know from searching ocn that this sort of idea comes up every so often. Hopefully my post has enough keywords to catch on people's searches. If you guys would like, I can post photos of the ML08 fully packed and the case this weekend.

Agree with you, silverstone made stupid choices especially after learning from 2 versions of the RVZ01.
Nvidia reference coolers are meant as functional showpieces more than anything, Nvidia focuses on the actual GPU chip

The board partners buy these chips and drop them onto their own cards, basically all their research is focused on the cooler and other components on the PCB.
So basically any non-Nvidia cooler will be better cooling wise, and thats why they are often factory overclocked cause temps are not as much of an issue.

IMO the Nvidia cooler looks amazing, especially as a showpiece with a windowed case.

However, it might actually be a little bit better in the RVZ02 because blower style cards exhaust all the heat out the back near the I/O plugs and are less dependant on the
airflow inside your case.

There are tradeoffs eveywhere, welcome to PC building lol

sounds really nice!
I travel periodically and I already wondered how I can transport my RVZ02, but that Travel Case seems too huge for me, I woudnt have enough place for my actual luggage biggrin.gif

What other cases did you come across in your reseach that you might find good, just for the tower?
nope

Pelican has a nice advanced search feature where you can search by dimensions. I went and put in the ML08 dimensions here.

My original search before I started including peripherals and the monitor pointed me at the 1560 protector, it came up in the above search too. The im2950 is pretty much checked baggage only or fedexing it to yourself if the trip is long enough to justify the delay. Amazon had 1 or 2 other companies offering professional-quality travel cases, but they were all too small for what I was looking for so I didn't put much effort into researching them.

How do you plan to get by on transporting just the case? In my case, the im2950 was actually about perfect for transporting a whole gaming setup with ml08/rvz02. If you went with a tenkeyless keyboard and a very small monitor (probably twice as hard to get a monitor that is both small and thin than it was for me to find the asus one), you might be able to get by with a smaller case. It's quite the project biggrin.gif
