Re: SilverStone Raven RVZ02 Slim Tower

Hi Lawrence,

another great review of a very interesting case.

I am considering it myself. I have the RVZ01 case (with a full size ATX PSU) and it still rocks as a gaming case.

Cheers

Re: Quiet Mini-ITX Gamer Build Guide

What about the RVZ01 "mini Raven" case? My thoughts exactly - I mean, I have build a gaming mini ITX system with a full ATX PSU (Corsair HX650 PSU) unit inside this case. The PSU has the zero RPM fan mode, it is Ultra quiet. The CPU is easy to cool, and the GFX is easy to cool quietly as well. RVZ0...

Hi, great review subject, the Kraken G10, thank you for reviewing it! Question concerning the conclusion.

Re: ASUS Z87-Deluxe fake 4-pin headers & other fan control i

Hi!

I have a Asus Z87I-Pro and would like to use SpeedFan but without luck - BUT version 4.50 fixed earlier bugs so that rpm, temps are show correctly.

Do tell if you find a way to control the fan using another program than fan xpert 2, as it is only controlled by the CPU. I need to control by GPU.

The RVZ01 is actually a little larger at 14l but it would be interesting to see how it performs in comparison. Yes, the Raven Z has a cooling system much more tuned toward cooling the hot graphics card wit 2x120mm fan intake along the card, and a 120mm fan right on top of the cpu (possitive pressur...

Re: Fractal Design Node 304 Mini-ITX Case

BUT I can tell you what really counts for case like this to stay quiet with a high power gaming rig is... 1. airflow to the VGA card -- mainly how open the left side is. 2. airflow through the rest, particularly for CPU cooling. Generally, the biggest noise differences will be in the VGA cooler & t...

Hi SPCR, great review of the Node 304, which I consider buying for my gaming build.

I understand that each fan header is rated for 12V, 1A operation. All my fans on my curre...
