Ah yes, that was truly one of the most awesome mods I've ever seen done to the RVZ02. Best part is other than the mesh grille, it looks stock - I'm a fan of putting mods in an unassuming case.

As for ITX versions of cards, perhaps we can guess-estimate by comparing the release dates of the 970 and the 970 ITX versions. I'd rather not butcher my case with my shaky, shaky hands in an attempt to squeeze an HDD and a full-sized graphics card, but if it takes too long, I just might.

Any luck replacing the front LEDs?

Here:

On a side note, he mentioned he wanted to change the LEDs, and the size of which are 3mm. I think I've seen others mention that it was 5mm LEDs. Anyone know what the actual size is?

I had a heart attack looking at his amazing build. This is indeed the most awesome mod ive seen in an rvz02. Good job buddy!

On the other hand, im not sure if replacing the plastic window with a mesh will give me the clearance i need so it wont touch my gpu fans. In fact the left most gpu fan is already touching the side panel even with the plastic window removed.

I might do a cut out of left side of the panel until its no longer touching the left gpu fan and probably find a way to bend the metal mesh around to give me the clearance i need.

Did you use the GPU restraint bracket that comes with the case? It might give you a millimeter or two.

I didn't try to play with the front LEDs yet.

Just wanted everyone to know that Silverstone brought these things to computex so theyll be released hopefully soon:

800w SFX-L PSU
700w SFX-L PSU
650w Sfx PSU
A pc case which looks like a bl08 slightly but has a monitor built in on the side

has anyone used the same card and did a work around?
Im fine leaving the side panel off but it will be great it there is some sort of mod that i can do.

What was the simple mod you did for the two 3.5" drives? I'd love to do a 3.5" and an optical drive in the RVZ02. room for a 2.5" would be nice too, but with an M.2, not quite as necessary.

Also, what's the best bet for blu-ray playback (and ideally writing too) in the ML08 or RVZ02 cases?

Sad to hear the windforce doesn't fit! I'm a big fan of the windforce series and was planning to go with a 1080 or 1070 windforce, assuming it would fit.

A bit of a problem with my last cut. I can fit the fans, but the right most fan is blocked by the power connectors on my Gigabyte Windforce 980Ti G1 (which is NOT fan-blocked by the perforated side vent, to the benefit of recent discussions). I included a NZXT Grid+v2, so I just deactivated that fan and modified the profiles for the other two. The compartment still vents very well on two 80mm, and the fans still get to suck from the CPU side as a bonus. I may place a slim in the third position anyway. (it's probably just as well. That fan was spinning at about half speed/volt.)

I added BlueLounge CableDrop Mini cable holders from best buy on the left and right panels to double duty as case feet to help whichever is the down side breathe better and provide light external cable routing options.

I've had an FTZ01 for about 7 months now, and only a couple of months after I built my PC, the power button on the case broke. I pushed it in to turn it on, and the power button just kind of stayed pushed in. Now the button is non-functional.

Does anyone have any ideas how I might go about fixing this? Can I access the backside of the power button from the inside of the case to try to push it back out? I'm leery of turning off my PC and opening it up to look for myself because I've been putting my PC to sleep for these past 4-5 months (!) and I'm worried that I won't be able to easily turn it back on if I can't fix the button. I suppose I could short the jumpers to turn it back on, but I figured I'd ask here first.

Thanks for any advice!

He removed the SSD trays. Unscrewed what could be unscrewed, and bent back (?) the metal bits that hold in place.

Regarding the ODD drive, that requires some cutting, I think, so only do so if you're absolutely sure you won't get an ODD.

Finally got mine, along with other stuff. Excuse the poor photo. Not pictured are four Evercool 30mm x 10mm 12v Fan, which I planned to install in a 3 x array on top for the GPU exhaust and one on the bottom for the CPU exhaust.

The objective was for there to be no need to cut the case panels, since the fans are small enough to blow directly out of the existing vents. However, because the fans are as small / narrow as the top ridge opposite the GPU chamber, I'm having doubts about this strategy.



I noticed the SSD trays aren't screwed in, apparently.

So I'm not sure what happened here:

One image implies the metal bits of the hinges are bent back (perhaps the part of the SSD tray that goes in it is cut off?), while another implies the metal hinges are cut off.

Mod number one would be to get rid of the SSD trays.
