It’s possible but for best balance of cooling and quietness, installing a fan directly on the CPU cooler is usually more effective than installing exhaust fan on rear of the case.
The RV04’s airflow path has been optimized using positive pressure design to dissipate heat. The two front 180mm fan will provide equal airflow for both CPU and graphic card area. From our test results, a rear exhaust fan creates an imbalanced airflow that lowers the CPU temperature slightly at the cost of greater cooling performance loss for the graphics card area. Even without an exhaust fan installed the hot air will still exit naturally from the rear. We have also found out through testing that installing a fan directly onto the CPU cooler results in overall quieter case compared to having a fan mounted in the rear exhaust fan slot due the latter’s more exposed location and turbulence against the fan grille. So with all things considered, an exhaust fan is unnecessary with this case’s design, but the rear fan mount is still included for convenient placement of all-in-one liquid cooling solution.
The RV04 was designed to achieve optimal silence so there are no fan guards in front of the front fans to reduce noise associated with air turbulence. To reduce the chance of foreign objects touching and damaging the spinning fans while the system is on, we recommend only removing and cleaning the filter when the system is off.
A. If your fan is connected to the motherboard, we suggest you to turn off temperature control function in the BIOS. If you want to use temperature control function on your motherboard, we recommend you to set the RV04’s physical fan speed switch to high for a lower starting voltage and a wider range of control. If the fans still do not spin, please contact reseller or SilverStone to arrange for replacement.
This chassis supports Kensington security locks to prevent not only the entire chassis from being taken when locked but can also prevent theft of interior components. If the top cover can be removed independently then there is no point in having Kensington lock holes in the first place.
Customized liquid cooling systems do not have a definite installation procedure. Typical chassis will not have provision for this. DIY users must make provisions themselves. If you want to install a 3 x 120mm radiator, we recommend Magicool Dual 180 Radiator instead as a better alternative.
