Silverstone Raven RVZ01 / RVZ02 / ML07 / ML08 / FTZ01 Owners Club - Page 98

Could this case potentially fit 2x 120mm closed loops or 1 240mm and 1 120mm + Kraken G10??

I think I was too busy putting the parts together wink.gif But anyhow, there are already much cleaner pics than my build. Eventually I will post some pics from my finished setup.

Like I said, it´s absolutely okay. I don´t have any equipment to measure it, but it´s far from annoying. My PS4 is much less hearable, but that´s a different story and different hardware. I would compare it to the old fat PS3 (probably a bit louder than that).

I´m running the two included case fans. One at the top (above the CPU-Cooler) and one at the bottom. The third slot is empty.

There is also beQuiet. They offer a 400W SFX PSU (http://www.bequiet.com/en/powersupply/493). But probably not on the american market. I went for the Silverstone to be on the safe side, as 400W seemed to be quite low for my system.

I just may send back the NH L12...or just use the Muscle.
I will do that. Are there any standard load tests, so that the results are comparable?

Just an update on temps....as I attempted to fart around with getting the crappy blu ray drive I ordered off ebay from China for BR movie playback (dont buy the liteon DL-4ETS), I loaded up hardware monitor in the background...Not sure if the thermal paste needs time to settle (and how much of it) but I was noticing my idles temps were hovering around 33-34C, which was an improvement from before of high 30's/40). While Im still OCD'ing about just how big of a bastard that NH-l12 is, I really cant complain in terms of performance for both cooling and audible levels. I am a fan of the Noctua brand. thumb.gif (albeit a bit on the pricey side) I think the ugliness of it gives it character lol.

I'm really tempted to order the Noctua NH l9i 92 for comparison's sake. While @Nerix has shared some pretty decent idle numbers for this unit (and are waiting for the load tests), it is only rated for a 65 TDP proc. I believe the i5 haswell's (both K and Non K) are rated of a TDP of 85. (the T is rated at 45 and the S is 65). What are everyone's thought on that? From my searching, it seems to matter if you're going to OC the chip which I think we've all agreed that in this case, it's probably not the best thing to OC your chip in unless you go water cooled. But with Nerix's setup, if a person was to use the NH l91 92 (or other lower profile cooler that is rated for a 65 TDP chip) 3 case fans should be used (preferable 25MM for better air movement) and of decent quality/brand. (be quiets, noctua, insert make here, etc).


One question for the veterans here, I noticed that my SYSTIN temps were at 40C. Is that high?

Hi all,

I tried the Noctua NH-L9i before and performance was not there. It was only 3 degree celcius below stock cooler at idle and about 7 deg. cooler than stock on full load.

I tried the corsair H75 but had hard time fitting it in there, kinking tubes were not performing well. Tried the CM Seidon 120M but same thing happened, hard tight fit and performance not there.

I just ordered the NT06-PRO since it is made to fit in the case, but I have a question. I have 2xSP120 high perf high pressure in vga bay pulling air inside. Should I use the fan on NT06 to be pushing air through fins out of the box or pulling air through them?

Since there should be a 1mm space between top of cooler and side panel, I thought about making a gasket that would sit on top of the cooler, kind of sealing the case to the cooler and make the fan pull air...

Anyone know if the fan of the NT06 can be upgraded?

Thanks guys for the answers!!!

how many case fans where you using when you have the Nocuta in? While Ive read similar reports on some review sites regarding this particular cooler, we've had a member here show some impressive numbers. They did however upgrade all case fans to 25MM, all set to intake. Also, what proc are you using?

Correct, there is the beQuiet but I'd also be worried about running my system at 400W as it doesn't seem like it's enough.

Can't wait to see what you do with the new paint job.

That gasket idea might not be bad at all and could possibly help a bit with temps.

When you tried the Seidon 120M, did you try to tie down the part of the hoses to the pump? Several have done that throughout the thread and it has worked for them.

A little update on my build, I have 2 SSD's and 1 3TB HDD in my case, I was trying to figure out how to get them all powered a few pages back, it turns out that there is actually a 3 SATA power line that comes with the Silverstone Flat Cable PSU Set I just didn't see it before, so after ordering an extra SATA data cable (the Gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI Motherboard only came with 2) I got it working!

I just bought a Corsair Air Series SP120 for the side of the case directly above the CPU. I have a Thermalright AXP-100 Muscle which previously was clocking my 4770k at 35°c+ idle with the default silverstone case fan above it. I now moved the silverstone fan to the back of the case next to the other one it comes with, and slotted in my SP120.



It fits pretty snug but I'd say there's probably 1cm gap between the the SP120 and the AXP-100 Muscle's fan. The SSD power cables get a little pushed but nothing dramatic thanks to them being flat.



I'm happy with how it looks too.



My temps hover around 25c+ which is really nice, and it never reaches past 49°c.



There's a little bit of noise now where as before it was totally silent. I like it though as I can tell when the pc is turned on now smile.gif Also I don't have my GFX card yet to add more temp and noise into the equation.

With the Noctua NH-L12, should I set the bottom fan to blow air up (through heatsink fins), and set the sidepanel fan as exhaust? Or would running the bottom fan shooting down, and sidepanel as intake work better?

I believe the default is to have the flan blow up? How did it come mounted? I assume this as you figure the heat will be dispersed through the fins from the heat pipes, so you wouldn't wan to suck the hot air down...truthfully I never bothered to look.
