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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
