Silverstone RV02 Raven Tri-GPU setup

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Quick question about the Raven RV02:

Can you fit three dual slot GPU's into it, given the position and orientation of the HDD's at the bottom?

I know this will vary depending on the layout and postioning of the mobo, but I'm concerned that it will be a tight squeeze to fit my sig rig in there

Any ideas or help or opinions welcomed!

Yup. That guy has room for one more dual slot card inbetween his two.

Thanks

I'd read a review or two that seemed to suggest they'd have problems with the bottom GPU pushing against the HDD connectors, but that pic clears it up

Yeah, And to improve cooling you can even move the HDD bay to any of the drive bays(Like at the top) so there is better cooling for longer cards in the last motherboard pci slot.

Nice, that was gonna be my next question.

I've only got one optical drive, two F3's, and an SSD (which I believe will be hidden away) so those will all fit nicely in the top bays

Tempting as my Antec 300 is getting a bit cramped and warm

Yes, the SSD will be hidden on the backplate of the 5.25" drive bays.
(Like this)

I had a 5850 in my RV02 too. You don't too worry about the card interferring with the bottom fan grills as long as you don't have a 5970.
