Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 711

post #7101 of 7129
Hi,

i would like to ask u if these components will be okay using a RVZ02 and also if its possible to fly with it every 3weeks. I will probably put it into cabbin bag and wrap it into something so the vibration will not damage it. Also im not sure about the cooling whitch one to use :

- CRYORG C7
- Noctua NH-L9

PC COMPONENTS:

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 7 1700 3.0GHz 8-Core Processor
Mobo: Gigabyte - GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI (rev. 1.0) Mini ITX AM4 Motherboard
Ram: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 Memory
PSU: Corsair - SF 600W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular SFX Power Supply
GPU: GAINWARD GeForce GTX 1080 Phoenix GS or Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Xtreme Gaming Premium Pack Video Card
Storage: Crucial - MX300 275GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Storage: Crucial - MX300 525GB 2.5" Solid State Drive


What do u think?

Hi guys i just bought a rvz02b and about to buy a gpu. Thinking of buying the sapphire rx580 but seeing its a tall card, im not sure it would fit in the gpu chamber. Does anyone know if the rvz02b could fit the sapphire rx580?

Hi!

I've been lurking this thread since 2015.

Initially I planned on getting the ML08 for my rig but unfortunately I did not have enough funds for an mITX build.
The case itself is also very expensive.

Earlier this year I sold my mATX rig and built a GPU-less one on the SG13.
Luckily, before the year ends, I will be getting some money, and I plan on transplanting my components to the ML08.
I also plan on buying a GPU (probably an MSI RX 580 Armor OC 8GB) but that's AFTER the case-change.

Current build:
  • CPU: i5-7500
  • HSF: stock
  • Motherboard: Gigabyte B250N Phoenix-WIFI
  • RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR-2400 1x8GB
  • PSU: Silverstone ST45SF-G 450W 80+ Gold
  • SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
  • HDD: Some 2.5" 500GB I scavenged from a laptop

So the upgrade plan is:
  1. Case change to ML08
  2. buy GPU
  3. buy CPU Cooler (as needed)
  4. buy additional RAM (as needed)

ANYWAYS,
I have some questions:

Is it okay to install a 2.5" HDD on the drive trays? I understand this is a tool-free one but I'm not entirely sure if it's designed to handle (or minimize) HDD vibrations. The HDD is not that important to me as I just use it as a download/torrent drive. Basically a sarificial drive.

Given the 58mm cooler clearance, my CPU cooler choices are down to three. help me choose?
(1) Cryorig C7 - fan not reversible. MAY recycle hot air bouncing off the motherboard. Very good reviews and no concerns regarding interference.

(2) Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B - not sure if fan is reversible. also, 58mm height will make sure it will only intake cold air from outside of the case (no recycling of hot air). Has concern with RAM interference (but yea I have LP ram so I'm 99% sure this one is a no-brainer).

(3) Noctua NH-L9i - lower TDP compared to the above. quieter.

Just two short things: I didn't install any HDD, but the hard plastic drive bays will not minimize vibrations in any way, I guess.
But it should be fine to mound a HDD there. That's what they were designed for, right?
Second I mounted a Noctua NF-A12x15 on my Big Shuriken 2 Rev. B, which I was able to mount in both directions with no thermal difference.
See my previous posts for more information. I would definitely go for the Shuriken.

Hi guys!
I'm from Taiwan, I found this forum while I was searching on Silverstone cases.
I would really appreciate it if anyone could give me some advice!
I'm trying to build my own Gaming PC, but I'm not quite sure about how to solve the heating issue.

Case: Silverstone Raven RVZ01B
Mobo: ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-I GAMING (mini-ITX)
CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K 3.70 GHz
CPU Cooler: Silverstone NT06-PRO
GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX GTX1080TI-O11G-GAMING
Ram: G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 8G*2 DDR4-3200 CL16
SSD(M.2): Plextor M8PeGN 512G M.2 PCIe
HDD : Toshiba 3TB 64M 7200rpm
PSU: Silverstone SX700-LPT 80Plus Platinum


I'm sure that the Silverstone NT06-PRO can fit in Raven RVZ01B, because I saw a video on youtube, using the NT06-PRO.

After I decided my setup, I saw other cases, and then I realized that RVZ01B, ML07 and FTZ01 are pretty much the same!
And of course the newer ones look better, but how about the cooling performance?

Which case is better?
RVZ01B, ML07 or FTZ01?
They're all identical inside, so the difference is in the exterior and some parts. (ML07 doesn't have fans or fan filters.)

Does the case material affect heat dissipation?
Maybe the FTZ01 is better?
Both RVZ01B and FTZ01 have side panel vent.
But I'm not sure about ML07.........

Hey,
I was wondering if you could fit a two 2.5" HDD in a RVZ01 above the PSU.
Is that possible ? To fit this :
https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-Technology-3-5-Inch-Converter-SDP08/dp/B002BH3Z8E
Or this :
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00F3QFKNS

Where the 3.5" HDD usually should be.
I'm just wondering if you can do that, would be awesome if you could.

Have any of you replaced *both* the CPU/GPU fan and the case fans with a single, normal 25mm thick fan?

The reason is, I think a single 25mm thick fan will be able to push more air than slim fans stacked on top of each other. In addition to that, I have seen some modders out there who replaced their GPU fans with case fans, and the improvements have been nothing short of fantastic.

Basically here's my idea





My CPU cooler is the Scythe Big Shuriken and GPU is EVGA GTX 1070 SC. Based on my calculation, sans any fan, there would be 30-40mm space between the CPU heatsink and the vent. Same with the GPU. So with a 25mm fan, there would be 5-15mm distance between the fan and the heatsink (I am going to mount the fan on the chassis, instead of the heatsink to make sure that it gets fresh air instead of recycled hot air).

Regarding the fans, I think these criterias would be sufficient:

- High airflow (high RPM), to have some overhead
- 120mm frame
- 25-35mm thickness
- quiet (<30 dB)
- not sleeve bearing
- PWM controlled

And here's what I could find



I will be buying 3x of one of these, one for each vent. What do you think? Which fan would you recommend? Do you have other recommendations beyond these fans? Taking into account the 5-15mm distance, should I go with high static pressure or airflow?

I just mounted two dongles inside the RVZ01, turns out the space there fits a dongle perfectly. And since its technically outside of the case, I dont think there would be a ton of RF interference there.



It looks flush from the outside.



This would be perfect if you have an extra USB header like my Gigabyte Z170N WIFI which has a USB 2.0 header, in addition to the USB 3.0 one. I got one of these internal USB adapter


Advantages:
- The PC looks cleaner
- I freed up 2 USB ports
- I wont lose my dongles ever again

Can I be part of the club? I’ve got an RVZ03 with a 7700k, ASUS ROG STRIX Z270i, Corsair SF600, GIGABYTE AORUS 1080ti, one 2.5 SSD, an old HDD and 16gb of Corsair LED 3200mhz RAM crammed inside. It’s currently being cooler by a Fractal Design S24 AIO but I’m looking for an air cooler so I can actually have the case put together!

I’ll be swapping my RAM for the LPX low profile modules tomorrow, and will be ordering a cooler after that. Would anyone be able to give me some advice as to what the best cooler that will fit is? I’m curious about the Cryorig C1, and I’ve seen some pictures that look like people have put it in their ML08 and RVZ02’s
