Only for the same reason I am, which is that you can fit the quieter & more efficient PSU's (platinum and titanium ratings). In exchange for that though, you sacrifice the ability to put in a 3.5" HDD, and an optical drive. This makes it a choice between which fits your build intentions more, not a definite 1 is better than the others.
RVZ01 = Good cooling, 3.5" HDD compatible, Slot load ODD compatible.
RVZ02 = Low cooling, only 2.5" drives, quiet HTPC, smallest of the set, easiest to build in, tray load ODD compatible.
RVZ01-E = Largest range of power, most silence potential, only 2.5" drives (but 3-4 of them).
Bear in mind that the RVZ02 is basically limited to blower style GPU coolers, due to nothing forcing the GPU heat out of the case otherwise. On that topic, Ficher007 I have not seen pictures, just heard it discussed.

The only thing I need now is a graphics card - split decision between a GTX 1070 and an OC'ed RX 480.
Here's the completed (as of now) build:
- CPU: Intel Core i7 4790
- Mobo: Asus H87I-Plus
- RAM: G.Skill RipJaws X DD3 2x8GB
- PSU: Silverstone SFX-L 500w
- Case: Silverstone RVZ02
- SSD: Samsung Evo 850 120GB
- HDD1: HGST 1TB 7200rpm
- HDD2: WD Green 4TB 5400rpm
- ODD: Silverstone Slot-load DVD Drive
I plan to change my front LEDs to blue, and to paint the thing grey. Maybe I could add another venting fan for the CPU / Mobo chamber. Any suggestions for those?
I could also use a software to monitor temps. What would you guys recommend?
Making it gray w/ blue could be cool, I look forward to pictures if you do. The 1070's can get a bit toasty, but the blower style should be fine from what I've read as long as you're not pushing its performance too much. Between the two, it's just a toss up as to whether you need the performance gain from the 1070 vs the 480. Temp software I personally don't know, I generally use boards with built in thermometers and use their software to monitor/utilize that info. Someone here probably has a recommendation.

Just saw your post. It really depends on which of the cases you're using. Several of the Silverstone & Noctua ones are used heavily in many of these builds.Edited by Jaraii - 7/17/16 at 1:19am
