post #4601 of 6398
I've scowered the internet for better part of the day, and I can't pick between the rv-03 or the TJ-04. I'm looking for a case under $200 that will support a H220 without ANY modification. I don't have the tools or the time to do any modding. What do you guys think?

i know it's not SS but corsair, bitfenix and cmstorm have very good case in that price bracket.

I'm going to see if I can get a SS case still, but I think I'm going to get a Fractal Design Arc Midi R2. They just came out, and it has the option of having two 240mm rads, when I decide to get a full custom loop with my h220.

Couple of days ago i receive my RV-02. Some things are very good and some simply surprises me.

It looks good on my desk next to monitor and there is plenty of space and options inside.
I connected bottom fans to MB. I was very happy they can rotate as low as 100 rpm. Usually i keep them at 360 rpm ( anything < 500 rpm is acceptable ). It makes top fan controller useless though.

I tested how system air flow cools my present CPU without fan on CM Hyper 212. It almost did it ( i stopped Prime when temperature reached 50 C ). I have high hopes for Thermalright HR-02.

Internal hot-swap connector does not make sense.

Back filter position looks lower than it should be.
I would like to see back filter frame not square , but rectangular shape. And actual filter placed ~1/2 inch up/down from the center, so any one could rotate it to mach one's PSU fan position.

HDD trays can not be used up side down too. In my case i had to twist SATA-power cables, as a result one connector does not reach first HDD . I decided to make my own SATA-power cable. Have everything except connectors... The best deal i could find on them was 1 EUR/unit kookoo.gif . Most likely i will take connectors from some old PSUs.

All in all i man happy with case but it will take some time to set it the way i like. cheers.gif

I would not recommend spinning those AP181's below 400RPM. it does need SOME static pressure to draw air through the air filters. anything below 400RPM you aren't drawing any useful amount of air through... I keep mine spinning at 500RPM minimum. and around 700RPM when gaming.

Yep. The fans are pretty much useless at that RPM. Adding additional anti-vibration and sound dampening materials may help further decrease any noise being emitted by your computer chassis.

I've been seeing a lot of watercooled FT02s/RV02s on here lately and have been wanting to do that to mine. Could someone give me a hand getting parts picked out? I know that I'm gonna need a 540mm rad (I think the Magicool one) but as for CPU block/pump/res I'm lost, I'll end up with a 7970 Lightning block for my GPU so that's taken care of though. Thanks. thumb.gif

Is there any specific reason you are going with the magicool rad ?

I would suggest the Alphacool NexXxos UT45, it is thicker and it is full copper ... (not brass like the magicool)

Unless you are not doing the HDD cage mod or removing the fan filters I don't see an upside to the magicool variant

I just saw that most people that got a rad for it got the Magicool. Is it a good idea to match the radiator brands? Like if I get the Alphacool should I get an Alphacool NexXxos 120mm as well? I'm totally new to this, only liquid cooling experience I've got is with the closed loop coolers so it's pretty much nothing. tongue.gif

It is not necessary to match brands unless you are OCD ... I personally prefer to keep things uniform as it makes things easier ...

What is important is to try not to mix to many types of metals in the loop ... that is why I suggested the full copper radiators, it will help choosing blocks as there are a lot of awesome copper blocks out there...
