Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 683

post #6821 of 6930
From the specs that I googled before it was too wide, it is about 2.5 slot

Max width is 43mm, strix 1080ti is 525mm
Strix 1080 is 40mm

So 1080ti strix is too large :/

I'm thinking about modding the case but titan xp would fit so maybe I will buy that or just wait for next generation. Or maybe amd is really going step up their game smile.gif

Please may I ask some RVZ01 owners for help with GPU selection? I've chosen the RX 480 for my first build, but would like to be doubly-sure I'm choosing one that actually fits and get some recommendations.

The case manual states that the max length is 330mm, max width with bracket is 131.6mm (without is 149.3mm) and total thickness limitation is 68mm. Just from having a quick look on PCPartPicker, I've seen the following thus far. I've taken the GPU dimensions from the manufacturer's websites and included them here, from narrowest to widest.

Gigabyte Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming 8G L:232mm W:116mm D:40mm
XFX Radeon RX 480 8GB GTR L:280mm W:124mm D:40mm
MSI Radeon RX 480 8GB ARMOR 8G OC L:269mm W:125mm D:38mm
PowerColor Red Devil Radeon™ RX 480 8GB GDDR5 L:310mm W:128mm D:38mm
ASUS ROG Strix RX480 8G or 08G L:298mm W:134mm D:40mm
MSI RADEON RX480 GAMING X 8G L:276mm W:140mm D:42mm

I am left little uncertain by an earlier post I read when searching the thread for anyone else using the RX 480 though...

The card I have installed now has a card height of 4.38" and fits just fine.

Which would then make the Gigabyte my only viable choice at just 1mm over his recommendation? I'm a first time builder, so do GPUs always have the plug in the same location? Surely Silverstone would have taken that into account when publishing max dimensions...? Is there any way around a protruding plug, like some sort of right-angled adapter or some such?

Hi again, Broadmonkey. May I ask which RX 480 you selected for your build? Thanks smile.gif

Well, the MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G is ~ 510mm and fits as stated here: (Click to show)

Yeah, I got an MSI RX480 Gaming X 8G.
It fits just fine, but you have to remove the power socket at the back, and let it stick out the case to make it fit. But I think this is the... case for a lot of the wider cards.
It really isn't that big of a deal, and pretty easily something you can forget about, once your setup is done.

One thing to note, is that the MSI cooler has the heat fins laid out horizontally. That means the air will get pushed out back of the case and to the front. It creates a pocket of hot air, that can't easily escape. When I put my hand to the fan nearest the back of the case, I can only feel cold fresh air coming in. At the fan on the front, it's a mix of both fresh air and hot air being recirculated from inside the case.
So I think a card like the Asus ROG might be a better card, as its fins goes vertically. It would push the air to the top of the case, where there is a lot of ventilation. Just a thought.
I got the MSI for cheap though, so no regrets.

Greetings, I am a new user to Overclock.net and it is because I'd like to build my first gaming PC ever!
I'd just like to thank all of you who have been contributing great experiences to this thread.

I am planning on building in a ML08. Below is my build so far, and with that, I hope to play some current games at max/ultra settings.
However, I will not try to overclock my CPU or GPU as a casual gamer. I am also not trying to do any modding with the case.

One of the biggest issues people raise is cooling.
(1) PCPartPicker reminded me my CPU cooler may be too large, therefore I was thinking of replacing the fan with Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 3000 rpm. Someone built this way and said it barely fits. Have people got better CPU cooler ideas?

(2) Will my build make too much noise/be too hot all the time?

(3) Any suggestions on my build, like saving cost here and there, or if I picked a particularly poor component?

Case: Silverstone ML08
CPU: Intel Core i5-7600K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Deepcool GABRIEL 61.9 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty Z270 Gaming-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 1070 8GB Video Card
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory
Primary Storage: Samsung 960 Evo 250GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
Secondary Storage: Hitachi Travelstar 1TB 2.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
PSU: Silverstone 500W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply

Thank you so much for reading my post!

Heard that the gabriel should not be that good, you may want to consider the scythe big shuriken 2 rev b or the zalman CNPS8900 Quiet.

for ram I had problems with the ripjaw because they didn't fit beneath the big shuriken 2. so consider some like the Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Vengeance LPX, which I use.

Thanks for responding, Broadmonkey smile.gif I'm gazing at the pics of the rear of the case on Silverstone's website, but I have no idea what I'm trying to imagine, haha! Can you please describe what you mean in a bit more detail for me? Is that what user Vf2ss was talking about in the post I quoted in my last post, or is that something else? Does it hang out by much and would it make my system any more 'delicate' to move between rooms in the house?

Very interesting point about the heat fins, thanks for the great tip! That's exactly the kind of nitty-gritty info I just love to know beforehand, haha smile.gif I'll go back and take another look at the cards with that in mind.

Hi Zara, welcome to the forums, I'm new here and preparing for my first build too. Go us! smile.gif

You mentioned in your post you have no plans to overclock, yet I notice in your parts list you have chosen an overclockable CPU and motherboard. Seems like a waste of money if you have no plans to use those functions - opt for a non-K processor like the i5 7500 and a B250 chipset motherboard instead and save yourself some £££s! Probably won't need the CPU cooler either if you're not overclocking. Have also heard that Corsair are a bit nicer than Silverstone's PSUs if you wanted to change that over - think it's only a page or two back on this forum topic where someone helped me with them smile.gif

Might help to let people know what resolution and framerate you are aiming for in your gaming to help answer questions on performance and heat issues. Are you going to be using your case oriented vertically or horizontally?

This is an older picture, but shows how much the power socket is blocked by the GFX. I outlined the bit with a red cirkel.
As you can see it is not much. You should also be able to see the female power socket hanging out of the case to the right.
The cable is just tugged way out of the case, so I had room to take the picture.

I think newer revisions of the case has the hole for the socket moved further to the right, eliminating the problem, but I am not sure.
For reference mine sits it the middle of the case.

It won't make your system more delicate in any way. In essence, it is nothing more than a simple extension cable.

I hope I answered your question.

The BIG Shuriken seems like a good choice. Corsair RAM was in my plan all along, now that you mentioned it I will probably just go with it! Thanks!

Thanks for the tip on mobo and CPU! It does save nearly $110USD for me.
I hope to play current games at 1080p and 1440p with 50fps or above. Is it possible without overclocking, do you think?
I am still going for GTX 1070, will the saving on CPU be a huge factor? I will be placing my case vertically.
Thanks again!
