Congrats and enjoy!

As for the bold, I chanted the same thing as I hit the power button after my new build. I was blown away when everything just worked the first time. I usually screw something up. :)

Gonna have to buy some cables extenders for fans and maybe custom cables, the 3 240mm on the Raven 02 I have are molex only, so I have 3 extra molex that is a bitch to fit behind the back panel.

Also, freaking weirdest thing, I can't see the nvm-e drive in the BIOS... tried booting from the USB drive to install Windows and it was there.

Goddamn it's fast though ! Here is my Crucial M550:

And here's the 980 Pro :D

Not super satisfied with temps, idleling at 33-ish but then again, open case. Will see with the airflow from my Raven, which is pretty amazing ! Had to use the paste supplied with the Noctua, probably gonna buy something better. Is Arctic Silver still the best thing ? Been a while since I checked that out.

Installing Windows 10 from scratch took 8-9 minutes tops.

Turn on PBO and hit that 200 MHz OC button.

Nascar24 Mar 27, 2021 09:16 PM

Temps are fine. I Idle much higher on my 5900X. I do have a million things running in my tray though.

Gandalfthewhite Mar 27, 2021 10:06 PM

yeah ryzen just idles on the warm side im on water and my 3900x idles around 42C

demo Mar 28, 2021 04:43 AM

Nice build :drool: and that 980 pro is doing well :D

KAC Mar 28, 2021 07:16 AM

Show the build.

Flyordie Mar 28, 2021 05:26 PM

Pretty substantial upgrade. :-P

Here is a couple pics !

The Silverstone Raven RV-02E is an "inverted" case, mobo is installed in a 90 angle, taking all the fresh cold air from the bottom (fed by 3x 180mm fans) directly to the CPU heatsink / vid card / hard drive cage.

The SSD is hidden behind the little heat sink plate besides the graphic card.

Upright position

With side panel and top cover on (the monitor / power / usb cables are routed to the top because of the motherboard "inversion", instead of coming out of the back - which is why there is a cover on the top, to protect the cabes while maintaining great airflow)

Heatsink is about 2mm away from the plexi window. Happy with the beast ! Had a couple of "scares" with my 3080, on my older setup, kept hearing 3 beeps before hearing the BIOS beep... turns out the card tells you you're in legacy mode and not full UEFI.

Also, the fans stop if the care is under 60, made me panic when I noticed it ! All is good, super silent when it's on normal load :drool:

Gotta update the specs now :)

Very nice Manga, thanks for the pics.

I used to think the chimney concept for cases was the best one until I forgot about the dust filter on the bottom. Out of sight out of mind and oh my god was it a dust magnet. Its still a good idea to get the coldest air from the floor but it should come from the sides or front/back where if any dust cloggin occurs youll see it.

I like the mobo orientation tho with all the connectivity on top. It makes for a challenge to make the cable management not sully the case but its doable.

Trunks0 Apr 2, 2021 11:44 PM

Ah!!! forgot you have the same case as me! Looks awesome :drool:

KAC Apr 3, 2021 01:55 AM
