Does the Raven design lose alot of performance in cases like this?
It is better if you have a cooler that has fins going front to back instead of left to right. However I used a gelid icy vision v2 on my 470 I used to have and it cooled just fine in my case. So either way, you should be just fine.

In and out of the case...
I put a 360 rad on the bottom replacing 2 180mm fans (XSPC RX360) and i've modded mine to fit a 240-280mm(maybe) radiator to fit where the optical drives are, of course blocking use of optical drives...but i don't use an optical drive so i guess im good.

The AP fans do a fantastic job of forcing all the air out of the case...you shouldn't have any issues

Thanks, definitely settled on getting a RV02. Though there seem to be 3 different versions for sale.



I'm assuming the 2 non-Evo's carry AP181 fans as well, since it's one of the largest shops, but the v1.8 confuses me a little.

Either way, which case would be the cleanest looking one with only 1 HDD?
Don't really mind the extra cash if the E looks better on the inside.

If i can fit a 360 rad on the bottom of the raven rv02 can i do a push/pull config on the bottom or it will block the length of the video card?? Right now i got a 6870 card..

Second question is there any mounting holes for external rad on the back of the case???and wc holes to pass through?? Or u need to make a hole for it??

I only have the 360 radiator...And i would take pics if i had a camera lol..

But if the rad is thin enough you MIGHT will be able to do a push/pull with thin fans also...But for me there is only enough room for push with my RX360.

And there are 2 gromets on the bottom of the case for tubing to pass through, but Silverstone's dumbass didn't make the case tall enough off the ground for tubing to fit...So if you can find stilts or something to use as stilts you can have an external rad box or w/e.

And no you cannot put a radiator on the back unless you want to make holes yourself..

This case is honestly the absolute worst for water cooling.

Also found a pic from a thread that helped me remove the HDD bays..



and this is the thread

http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...n-project.html


I also had the RV02 E with the FT02 styled HDD bays so it was a little easier to do. Less rivets to take out. And i measured the dimensions, and you can POSSIBLY fit a 280mm rad in there (HWlabs GTS280 will be a tight fit)and can secure it with zip-ties or what-not. Could fit a think 240 rad easily with some modding to hold it in place.

As soon as i get my camera working(hopefully soon) I'll post some of my results.
