Intro SilverStone doesn't offer the RVZ02 in white, so I made one myself. I spray painted the outside panels with white Plasti dip, about seven coats in total. I named her Asuna, the character from Sword Art Online, and I tried to match her color theme the best I could. I found it interesting that the front "orange Raven LED" matches Asuna's hair. This is my favorite build so far, requiring the the most patience, planning and attention to detail. I admit it's not perfect, but it's a perfect match for me. I hope to share this build with you, so feel free to ask questions or comment!
Purpose It's built for 1440p gaming on a QNIX 27" monitor OC'ed to 96Hz, on Ultra/maxed settings. Games include Fallout 4, Battlefront, ocassionally StarCraft 2 and waiting for the upcoming Rise of the Tomb Raider and Overwatch.
i7-4790K @ 4.0GHz: Idle 40°C, Gaming (Fallout 4) 55-60°C
EVGA GTX 980 Ti reference card: Idle 30°C, Gaming (Fallout 4) 60-65°C
About the RVZ02 This RVZ02 case was a pleasure to build in, it's nice and slim, fits on my desk. The case is beautiful in white, and rivals the NCASE M1 in aesthetics in my opinion. Things I didn't like was that the windowed version didn't include a dust filter. Also it only comes in black color, it would be nice to offer it in white and silver. The RVZ02 runs hotter than my NCASE M1 with similar parts (The M1 has better airflow from the ability to use extra fans).
Why not Skylake? I didn't go with Skylake because I already own and wanted to keep the Haswell CPU i7-4790K from a previous build and I didn't want to switch over.
Reference card for best temps I wouldn't recommend an open fan cooler in the RVZ02. I tested this case with an MSI 290 Gaming 4G at stock and Gaming Temps reached 90-95°C! The hot air was trapped and just recirculated inside the GPU chamber, but opening the side panel relieved the temps. But YMMV.
About the Power Supply I know I am cutting it close with the 500W Silverstone SFXL power supply, but I plan on upgrading it to the 700W Silverstone unit when it comes out. In the meantime, I disabled turbo-boost keeping the 4790K @ 4.0GHz, and leaving the GPU at stock. My power draw measured from the wall is 360 Watts under gaming load Fallout 4.
Thanks for looking! - J
