For the FTZ01/RVZ01, which type of GPU fan is better, blower or open air? Normally I'd think blower, but since these cases have vented slots for the GPU I'm not sure if blower would be better or not.

I'm having a hard time picking ram because idk what works with my cooler (axp-100R)

Where does everyone check out what ram is compatible with their Cooler?

Unfortunately there is no special site or formula for matching ram to cooler. Its a more complicated question because of all the factors that can influence your decision. Example: the proximity of the ram slots in relation to the cooler when mounted. The orientation of your cooler on the processor etc. But all is not lost, its simply a matter of determining what ram will fit in the confines of the cooler you selected.

In your case you have the axp-100R... so this means the "maximum" memory height you can select is 15.98mm. Once you know the speed you want
(example: 2133MHz DDR4) just search the memory specs to make sure the height of the memory is less than 15.98mm.

Less than 15.98 that's tiny :/ even corsairs low profile ram is too big

I think the cooler in this video is the axp-100 and I think the RAM used in the video is very similar to this one which is listed with a height of 30mm. I did a little googling and found that the Crucial Ballistix Sport is also 30mm (Note: The shroud doesn't cover the top of the RAM). Not sure if you need DDR4 or DDR3 but at least you know that 30mm RAM should more or less work, though it might barely touch the heatsink.

I know in the ML08/RVZ02 both say that you should use an open air cooler due to the cards proximity to the cases wide side vent...

On Page 27 of the RVZ01 manual it says "If you use graphics card with omni-direction or open air cooler, we recommend having two case fans on the bottom vents."

Generally, when given enough airflow, open air cards perform better that blower cards, but considering the layout of the RVZ01/ML07/FTZ01 I'm not sure which is actually better, my guess the open air card still.

You are correct... providing the ram slot locations on the OP's motherboard are not close to the CPU mount. Since the cooling fins on the underside are stepped in height the worse case clearance would be 15.98 ... best case would be 30.35. Thermalright makes a APX-100 and a APX100-R but both have the same height clearances so in this case the cooler model is not an issue. FYI: I've had coolers I couldn't use because the ram I wanted to use (and was unwilling to budge from my ram selection) wouldn't fit and due to ram height. I've also had a cooler I couldn't use because the cooling pipes of the cooler overlapped the GPU slot on my motherboard! NET: If his ram slots fall on the outside edge of the coolers perimeter then indeed he could push the ram height to 30mm.

Wondering if the MSI RX480 Gaming X would fit into an RVZ01 / FTZ01 ? The cards dimensions are 276 x 140 x 42mm.

Since the graphics card holder of the RVZ01/FTZ01 only holds cards up to 330mm x 131.6mm x 38mm I would not be able to use it. Would this card fit into the case without the holder? And are there any disadvantages by not using the holder?

Going off of Silverstone's numbers and not experience, If you do not use the GPU retention bracket (sort of unneeded if you are going to keep your case in one place and the case oriented vertically) you can manage up to 149mm in width. With a standard thickness of 34.8mm you'd have 32mm to spare for fans to attach next to the bracket. Bump up the card thickness to 42, and you MIGHT BARELY have space for 25mm fans, but more likely you'd have to get 20mm fans for the wiggle room.

In the long and short of it, yes you can still fit that card in the RVZ01/ML07/FTZ01, but you might have to make adjustments accordingly.

edit: in regards to the graphics card holder, I think it's mostly for when the case is oriented horizontally for a little added support, or for builds that will be transported more often. Just because I do not like wasting features or options, I made sure I bought a graphics card that was short and thin enough to fit within the limitations of that bracket. For GTX 1080s with OEM coolers, that was not easy to find ha ha ha.
