Description

Still testing the build.

Fixed problems so far: - GPU temps for non blower style (with the noctua 40mm fans) and (adding weather proofing foam tape around the GPU fans) -CPU temps (with the NH-L12 92mm fan reversed to blowing air away from the Motherboard) -3.5 inch Drive mounted (removing the slim optical drive mount and rerouting the PSU cable extension)

Trying to find them in the store was challenging. They came in the same size packaging like their 120mm fans.

May I ask why parts that are a gen old or older? I assuming the date built is correct and everything is new since the prices aren't edited

I already had the CPU, GPU, RAM and Motherboard. I kinda bought them early last year except for the gpu of course. Man, pc parts get old fast nowadays. Just wanted to add the build here in PC part picker because I recently bought the RVZ02 and found some problems with it that is still fixable with the right parts. Some people might find it useful and they might also use it for compatibility reference.

I like it. I couldn't do ITX, I'm garbage at cable management and don't have the patience. The little fans are pretty cool, I didn't know those existed. :)

Nice Build +1 A: why did your PC cost 2000$? B: I bought 100 noctua fans...

Really nice Build, i really see a trend to noctua in SFF builds...

A: They're some parts that I had for the past year. B: I also tried some fractal design 40mm ones, they looked really good but the quality is not as good as the baby noc's. At first they were quiet, then they became so loud it was like a mini leaf blower screeching.

How is the ventilation? I see alot of fans, but there doesnt seem like there is much room for air to move around. If it vents well you have an awesome build sir!

Also, how loud is it?

  • 30 months ago

Ventilation is great. The main point of the fans there was to ventilate the lingering hot air in the GPU chamber. I checked the clearance between the baby noctua fans and the case and it still has enough room for air flow. While playing BF1 the gpu temp gets to 58c max. The baby noc's are much quieter than the gpu fans under load. I'd say they are as loud as two no brand normal 120mm fans connected via molex.

I've tried the fractal 40mm fans as well, they are aestetically more pleasing for the rvz02 case, they move more air, but after a few days they became too loud, I guess they have bad quality bearings or something.

Those little fans are pretty unique! Some much goodness packed in there! Great job!

what did you use to hold that 3.5" drive in place?

  • 30 months ago

the case already had the mounting holes for it. It's supposed to be mounted on the other side if you used a shorter GPU.

I just removed the optical slim drive mount pegs and flattened the routing hooks for the PSU power cord extension to be able to mount it on this side of the case.

Those tiny noctua fans are the best things I've ever seen.

What's the max thickness of fans that can be added at the top? Nice build.

hey there, very nice build! :)

one question: did the cpu cooler fit without modification?

Kind Regards

I only removed the 120mm fan. It's better than the L9i for sure.

hi there does the cpu fan bulge out the side of the case?

Why did you pick old series parts, like the 4690k and a $710 980? The corsair PSU is a bit risky too.

The corsair PSU is a bit risky too.

How...Its a amazing PSU.

Well, it's Corsair, their rep in the PSU industry is kind of bad, and it's overpriced. Just something that can go wrong.

Their rep is fine unless you count the very very busted CX myths going around. Its the best SFX PSU out there hence the price. You get what you pay for. Like what?

The corsair PSU is a hell of a lot better then Silverstone load Peace of crap. Look at Johnnyguru review.

How can you compare a CX psu to this. Do some research thanks

  • 30 months ago

I already had the old parts. I went with Corsair because I couldn't find any other SFX PSU that was 600w locally(Canada). I've had Cooler Master, Corsair and Cougar PSU's before and never had a problem with them. I don't know if they also cheaped out on capacitors for the SF series as well but it's rated at 80+ gold so it should have better quality parts in it.
