If you know what your getting into with this board then I absolutely recommend this ITX case. My only grips are: I wish is came with slightly better case fans (but they'll do); The instructions are horrible, it has 1 sentence for every part of the case & I can't tell what each screw is based off of the instructions (so previous experience required); Must figure out the PSU bracket trick. Despite these grips i'm still very happy with my choice and if you want a Xbox One sized computer this is your man.
Pros: Very small formfactor, great aesthetics, intelligent design. Unique power supply setup, allowing for a 3.5in HDD to be mounted. Interesting mounting method for the graphics card, mounting it with a 90 degree angle brace, which also acts as a mount for two 2.5in drives.
Neutral: Includes three magnetic dust filters, and every screw in the universe.
Cons: LITERALLY ZERO labels in manual or on the bag that every screw comes in. Literally every screw is mixed together, and not even the manual labels what type need to go where. Painful to work in, especially around the HDD/PSU bracket's left side, where the cables for the front panel connectors interfere with screw holes. VERY little space for error with cable management, very difficult to keep cables out of fans as well. Case gets -HOT- with the default fan setup. Recommend the GPU fan to be left as is, and the CPU area fan to be reversed to pull air out of the case. Case comes without any exhaust fans whatsoever. Manual is very barebones, leaving me with plenty of questions. YOUR FINGERS WILL BE SORE AFTER BUILDING IN THIS, WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES SINCE IT HAS PLENTY OF SHARP CORNERS THAT YOU WILL CUT YOURSELF ON, EVEN IF YOU'RE CAREFUL.
The case has good ventilation with the two 120m fans that come with it. I had quite a challenge fitting stuffs and cables around the PSU, and hope it is easier. But otherwise the Silverstone RVZ01 is just what I wanted: Small, cool, quiet, understated. I find the blue LEDs a little too bright for sitting under the TV, but that is very minor annoyance.
At first I wasnt really happy with the space I had in it, I was too excited to build my own PC and rushed it a little. About a month later I decided rebuilding it completely and starting off of the hardest part which is PSU and HDD part. You really have to start from here just because if you dont, later on it is really hard to get to those screws if mobo is already installed. When you start off of PSU you hide front panel cables behind it starting to work with your cable management already. Then I actually took out the little metal part in front of PSU just for more room for cable management and it actally worked really well! After rebuilding in this case and working on my cable management, CPU idle temp went dont about 6-7°C! Now it stands at 20°C chillin :)
Amazing, innovative case! ***** to assemble, but in that little space, I was impressed. Fits any video card on the market
The best looking case to replace my gaming consoles!
Solid case, wish it was a hair smaller.
This is an awesome unique case for anyone who wants a slim tower.
Really a pain to build in, was too pressed for time to deal with the mess of wires this time.
