Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 640

Is there any LARGE backpack that the RVZ02 can fit in? I have to do a lot of traveling on a day to day basis, and I've been looking at the GAEMS backpack pro as a possible contender.

I heard someone also fit their RVZ02 in a MONSTER bag, but the promotion ended.

RVZ01 vs FTZ01. I know they are pretty much the same thing internally, but it looks to me that the Raven version has better ventilation on top for open gpu coolers. How's the heat buildup in the FTZ01, can the hot air get out easily enough?

Just discovered the beauty of underclocking. Have a GTX 1070, set the power temp limit to 65 and capped the fan curve at 45%. Overwatch doesn't go higher than 70c yet still maintains nearly the same FPS as when the power temp limit was set to 83 and power limit 100%. About 140-150 FPS. Before I had to keep fan at 70% to keep temps in check, but now it runs completely silent and great temps. (I built a RVZ02 for the sole purpose of quiet gaming computer)

Hopefully I can replicate the same results for Dark Souls 3, should be easy since the game is capped at 60 FPS.

You didn't specify which case?

The shadow rock lp is 75.4mm tall so it will fit in the RVZ01, which has a cpu clearance of 83mm.

It wont fit in the RVZ02 which has a cpu clearance of 58mm.

Sorry.

i was referring to RVZ02.

In that case i will go with SilverStone Argon AR06 or Cryorig C7.

Hi to all of you. Nice tips on building and component choosing. I'm building a x99 & 5820k system with a matx mobo in a rvz01-e rolleyes.gif.



Still need to get a cpu cooler, i'm transfering my current build to this one for more compact solution (from a CM storm trooper).

By the way, anyone got any problem with their pci-e riser? I don't get video signal with the 90 degree pcb, so i'm wondering if mine is faulty.

Any tips on cpu cooler are apreciated, I'm still reading the full post ... It's taking a while.

Hi everyone,

Just recently decided to go all SFF/HTPC style system from Full-Tower IB system.

Had some horrible experience from SIlverstone's cases. Mostly my own fault i guess.

I bought the Milo M08 case without much researching and faced so many issues:

My system is:

i7 6700k (mild OC)
Gigabyte z170 G1 gaming.
Gskill 16gb aries ram
MSI GTX 1080
Cryorig C7 cooler

First of all, this case is beautiful, but definitely not built for high end systems. Without any OC, all heat would trap in the case and when I opened up, my entire MB, SSD, RAMS were so HOT (untouchable like GPU) that i decided better to change to a different case because in time the heat will definitely blow any of the devices.

Looked into RV-Z01-E. It is amazing, everything fits EXCEPT:

the new 'E' version was made because of normal PSUs could fit, well i already got the SFX Silverstone and this was sort of useless. The cage that comes for PSU is badly designed IMO. It blocks everything, my 24PIN power, Sata connectors are so tight that I am afraid I have to loosen up the cage screws or maybe MOD to cut that area otherwise the pressure on the pins might be damaged sooner or later.

~ The rubber feet are useless. they come of as soon you move the case. It stays pretty sturdy so don't need them anyway.
~ The fans that come with it are not so noise friendly (if you are like me placing your system 2-3 feet next to you.

CRYORIG C7: Definitely NOT made for high end CPUs. My CPU at load gets to 75 C and the fan gets so annoyingly loud that I just turn of my system after a session of 1-2hrs gaming.

Overall this built was quite painful. I am now changing my cooler.

Also Silverstone SFX 600W PSU is not really that well built. The fan gets very interesting when the system is on load, weird HISSING and RATTLING noise.

Lesson learned:
RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH. Specially this forum topic smile.gif

The cooler that I changed to is Thermolab's LP53. Ordered from Korea, it'll take a while to get here frown.gif

I am surprised how Thermolab LP53 out performs the Noctua-L12 cooler. I'm big fan of Noctua but after reviews thought to give LP53 a try.

Anyone got any experience with Corsair's SF600 psu? if the place I bought my psu from allows me to replace it then was thinking to go with Corsair.
