Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 94

post #931 of 7090
do I especially need 12mm thick fans inside the case at the VGA area. would use 2 standard 25mm fans there (Noiseblocker black silent pro 120mm - from 600/700 to 900-1000 RPM you can't here them.

on the prolimatech samuel will be mounted a akasa apache (one of the best fans on a radiator / cpu cooler I ever had). costs just 2 € more then the Samuel alone (special offer) The top fan then will be removed. so it fits perfect in this area

Yeah, you can place 25mm fans under the GPU without an issue. I posted those Sycthe's in case anyone was looking for some decent 12mm fans.

I've updated the club members list, if I have missed anyone please send me a PM.

I am nuts, but considering round 3 with this case. LOL!

From hardforum, some people have spotted a 500W SFX that Tony from Silverstone has confirmed on the forums is going to be announced in Tokyo later this month. This might be another option for use in the RVZ01 if you take the bracket out and use a dremel to cut out the PSU fan hole making it wider for more air flow.

Made a quick mockup of the SX500-LG in SketchUp. Dimensions should be close but don't rely on it too much if your project has tight tolerances.

Nice find ! It seems to be a non-conform SFX sized PSU with a 120mm fan, so it's probably 25mm longer.

Ehhhh, I'll stick to the 600 true SFX once it's released here shortly.

That thing is the bastard love child of an SFX psu and a mATX psu.

Is there an accepted ETA on the 600W? Couple weeks? Months?

Hi All,

So an updates on the numbers Im getting. I ran a load test with AID64 and was getting some temps in the low 60's (62ish) on a 10 min test (CPU/GPU/RAM). This is with a Noctua NH-L12 with bottom fan, SilverStone 15MM on top mounted to the case, the Nocuta 25MM fan (that came with the heatsink) along with the other 15MM Silverstone in the GPU area. Not bad, but not great either. Noise levels are decent letting the MB control everthing But I kind of figured this since its running in this confined space:




After I installed the USB external fan at the back of the cubby set to exhaust I ran the test again same conditions and temps went down to low 50's (51-53) So a 10C difference. Idle temps were mid-high 40's pre-fan, and high 30's sometimes 40.

So in a confined space like this in the horizontal position, I would definately recommend some sort of venting/exhausting fan at the back to help suck out the hot air as it seems to get recycled back into the case otherwise.

That being said, I realize that these are synthetic tests, and may not necessary reflect real life temps during game/movie watching, and considering this is what it is and where I want it to be (in this cabinet, horizontal), do you guys think that 50C (+/-) is acceptable in terms of temps? System seem stable and noise was acceptable,..when the PS3 was that same exact spot (minus the cuby fan) it was way louder that what this is.

Last think, Im not overly impressed with the 15MM fans this thing came with, but hard to find a 15M to use on the side/top. But since I used the Noctua 25MM in the GPU area, think I would benefit by swpaping out the other 15MM with another 25MM Noctua or equivilant sized fan? GPU temps I think would hit 70 every so often from what I remember under synthetic load.

Which CPU do you have again? I recommend to get as much ventilation as you can in that cubby hole. If there is no fresh air coming in, all that hot air is sitting in there like a hot box. You can either go with the Scythe 12mm or Prolimatech UV12's 15mm fans.

I know some people are waiting for the ML07 to release, but from the looks of that case, there doesn't look to be adequate ventilation on the sides like the RVZ01. That is just speculation on my part from looking at pics.

I'll try to better organize the OP tonight with links to fans, coolers, etc.

Jim, you have any updates when the 600W could be releasing? Tony hasn't said much on hardforums, except just details on the PSU and then today confirmed this 500W bastard love child PSU. biggrin.gif

The official statement says in August. But I personally feel we might see it sooner. Just my 2cents.gif
