you really don't need 600wat for that rig, check pcpartpicker or any other watt calculator online, 450 will be enought.the corsair sfx 450 is the one that I have in my new rig, that is similar to yours

With a 6700k and IS-50 that 6700k would explode. You'll want an IS-60 minimum if you plan to go with ID Cooling...

opps.

this is my original intended rig.


Gigabyte H170N-WIFI + I5 6500
Gigabyte GTX 1080 8GB G1 Gaming
Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400Mhz 16GB (8GB*2) (Alternative) - Corsair sfx 450 or Corsair SF 600
Samsung 950 Pro 512GB
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB

Ah yeah, I forgot that was an issue since I went ahead and bought low profile cables to begin with. Incidentally, I don't think a standard SFX power supply won't have the same issues since the SFX is 30mm shallower than the SFX-L PSU we were installing in that picture.

Alright Guys,

I am going to answer once and for all the question everyone considering the RVZ02 is asking, "What kind of cooler design should I get for my GPU? Blower or Open?

Well, This is my rig

i5 6500 + MSI ITX mobo,
Intel SSD+2.5" Hitachi HDD
Noctua L9i Cooler
Silverstone SFX-L 500W
RVZ02 Non-Windowed Version

So, I managed to get my hands on 2 different types of GTX 1070s from Asus. 1) Asus GTX 1070 Turbo (Blower Style) 2) Asus GTX 1070 Strix OC (Open-Air)

Ambients are 25 Degrees, All temperatures mentioned below are with the filtered side panel on, so windowed versions without the dust grille should be able to shave 3 degrees away.

First off, The Asus Turbo (running Battlefield 1 Open Beta),


Max Temps @ 85 degrees Celcius Noise level: Borderline Unbearable when placed 40 cm away from me. Fan is @ 81%

Disclaimer: I am running Battlefield 1 at max settings to get these results. When I run Overwatch, I hit 89 Degrees, even higher than Heaven Unigine for some reason.

Moving on,

The Asus Strix Gaming under same ambient temps.



Max Temps @ 74 degree Celcius Noise Level: Audible, not annoyingly so. Fan is @ 73% And its the DCU cooler so it's quieter than the reference blower design.

Disclaimer: I am running Heaven Unigine at 1080p at max settings to get these results. When I run Overwatch, I hit 76 Degrees, with the fans getting no louder.


So,
Which cooler should I get for the RVZ02?

Answer: Definitely, an open air design (as stated in the manual) - It cools better, it is softer. Only issue I can see is it heating up the HDDs and SSDs at the back. But, unless you are going to be running the GPUs really hard 24/7, I see no issue.

This experiment is simply to confirm the statements that Silverstone mentioned regarding GPU cooler designs in this case. I am aware that many people are asking about this for the longest time, without any concrete proof as reply. So, feel free to link them to this post if you can.

Cheers.

And knowing is half the battle, thanks Joe for the results. Interestingly your results mirror mine when I went from a GTX 570 blower style to my GTX 1080 open air style. Now I know it is DEFINITELY not an apples to apples comparison, but they do have a -sorta- close TDP with each other.

Cheers mate! smile.gif

Best part is the GPU switches off the fan at idle. For the Strix at least.
