Please review RVX01

We all know that vertical design is superior, this one has even 3 120mm fans at the bottom.

Model SST-RVX01BR would be without the window which would obviously be better for noise isolation.

Maybe in a 15m chimney, otherwise the stack effect is pretty much negligible: https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/artic ... g-89/page2

You are wrong, all such cases consistently get the best results in cooling, like the FT05.

Very diplomatically and maturely put there... :roll: The chimney effect has a very minor influence over small distances as Cistron cites. They're not bad but they're not universally better as you assert.

The RVX01 doesn't strike me as one of Silverstone's best efforts. They're all pretty much the same but why have they downsized to 3x120mm fans rather than 2x180mm or 3x180mm as they've had in the past?

For an SLI setup up perhaps, but that's not the typical demographic of SPCR readers (although definitely an area of interest for many I'm sure). For almost any other build, there are plenty of choices that are quieter, easier to build in, offer better drive compatibility and are 50% cheaper. All while offering perfectly reasonable (and indeed very good) cooling.

The website for this case says it only can fit a 12" video card, has anyone had issues installing large video cards?
