    one issue im hitting- not sure as airflow isn't set up. Black screen and system crash with middle fan shooting to 100% speed.

    Hmmm, from gaming or just idling? Under what circumstances does it do this?

    just idle . fine before I took out of old system into new.

    I have a feeling might have damaged PCIe cable a little due to taking out the card and case so many times whilst modding . do plan on getting a new cable once everything is in place

    Could be bad Sata cable as well, i had a similar issue where a bad cable caused me black screens and fans to a 100% because it would feed an intermittent signal. Replaced that and it was all fine again.

    That PCIe cable has taken a lot of punishment over the past couple of months - didn't look particular healthy in one of the pics(?). Your gut feeling may be correct.

    Sob story email to Silverstone, they've been great with support to date?

    Been great but PCIe bracket was cooler master vertical mount kit, so need another one to use that cable for its mounting points to the bracket etc

    Ah, forgot about that neat work around - direct appropriate 'worded tears' towards them, you never know :)

    These extra bits are starting to mount up :/

    Aye, least I had them to start with . Didn't account for having to get the Eisbaer LT, but alpha sent the low profile parts . Could of used silent loop version butight meant I can use one silent wing 3 fan

    can do . But I have 3 NVMe (dont have to pay for samsung gear ) . also triple slot GPU still would of had issues fitting in standard stock

    also- thinking of hinging the side panel as a door!

    how 11/8mm compression look against low profile 12.7/7.5mm server purpose compression fittings

    [​IMG]

    looks matches the rad very nicely too

    will have to get some snaps of the TPV tubing, very tight bend radius which is a HUGE plus !

    lunch time sort out. worked out can have the temp sensor mounted.... yet ! will clash with Heatsink or ram

    @Plec @tamzzy @AVCaseMods

    240mm is in!!!! (just not filled yet)

    [​IMG]

    Kids were put to bed and whilst waiting for them to knock off next door- assembly ! Tubes were measured longer so could see how it would fit in the case and trim down
    [​IMG]

    Used the curve from the tubing in the packaging to my advantage - literally the tubing layout , spirals to the Core
    [​IMG]

    "shortie got low low low"
    [​IMG]

    does she work first time ?
    [​IMG]

    nope...

    In the case and could see trimming would be needed ! key issue- the height of @8 Pack / Team Groups xtreme range . Normally use sets of the 8 Pack Dark as they are lower and can be lowered - really hope you put together a 4000hz version ! Think I might have to rip off the Heatsinks
    [​IMG]

    Tubing lengths to long top and bottom ( always set your tubing longer then cut down shorter )
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    like a Cat, If I fits I sits ! (Again Plec my parenting skills, 4 and 2 yr old left to feed themselves breakfast this morning whilst im on the floor near by... one of them needed a new top ...)
    [​IMG]

    Now.... Im thinking of Hinging the Side panel to make a nice swing out door . firstly just easier and secondly I would tired of having to screw the panel in/out/in/out etc
    If I was smart I could cut either Metal or Acrylic panel cut to full size with venting holes and rad mounts cut out ....
    [​IMG]

    Slight bulge at the top in the middle - tubing might be catching on ram a little higher- before mounting to panel it was within the chassis by 3-4mm

    Fan issues. I've realised the stock fans are actually slower 1500rpm versions of ones listed on Silverstonetek website (black frame, white blades) and ARGB version, these are 2000rpm.

    19dB vs 23dB / 35CFM vs 55CFM and then static pressure of 0.8 vs 1.5

    The stock fans are the noisiest part of the build. The motor isn't the best. If you want to change them, the prolimatech isn't a bad shout.

    Alt fan if i wanted to throw money at h***ers

    https://noctua.at/en/nf-a12x15-pwm

    Silverstones ARGB
    https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=829&bno=56&tb=101&area=en

    Prolimatech looks good, they have a Steep angle of attack on fan blades for Airflow then Silverstone and Noctua with a shallow angle - but looks like it matches default fan's dB and Static but that AIRFLOW!

    Technically
    - when a fan is in PULL then AIRFLOW is the determining factor . If in Push then Static


    ones that are default in RVZ03

    Yeah the prolimatech fans are regarded as the best slim fans from what I've read

    noctua to match above, needs to be 1400rpm, at the same dB range, Air flow a little higher .


    Silverstone
    again, same rates , little lower CFM but higher Static for same dB


    HAHA

    If you're interested in a little collab I can help design and laser cut an acrylic front panel. It'd be a shame not to go custom considering the heavy modding all over this case!

    I think I may have to . Hopefully its shown Higher ups at Silverstone with increasing height by 7mm (so can accept more commonly known slim line rads - aka EKs awful SE range, or 90% of 27mm Asetek rads) and the length of the case by 40mm they could have an updated or new RVZ04 version that still does ITX with ATX PSU but GPU either face side up or down , with a multitude of fans and ATX option .

    Damn, Just picturing an AORUS TRX40 Pro Wifi in there with 24 cores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! @Plec you you've scretely got a few Xtreme board hidden from your family- send us a spare one ;)

    But to finish it off MAINLY so my damn kids stop pulling the cables out- a new side panel would be needed . Would cover that gap better but allow venting there . It would be nice with the GPU to have 120 or 140 mounting options for fans. I used 280 grill due to it showing off the GPU lighting better and more ventilation but for Slim Line rads, has to be 120/240 models and I think i've gone to big with cuts to revert back

    Tight !

    Begging for Hinge i think !
