Looking to take the plunge into sff.

I have decided to not overclock due to the space/cooling restraints and also the factor of noise: i want a quiet system

Components:

I have 4gb of ram and a 120gb ssd. Looking to add a gpu further down, since the only game i am playing at the moment is league of legends which runs on ultra on the Hd 4600 so...

Just posting here looking for some thoughts on the build and also if anyone has had any experience with the RvZ01.

I'd not get a wd green, it has an auto spindown/turn off feature to save power, that will cause performance issues in games, since it takes a second or two for it to start up and read.
Also, you can get away with getting an i5 4570 if gaming is your purpose.
Also, consider getting a high quality and quiet psu from antec, xfx, seasonic -500w should be enough for when you get a graphcis card.

Only supports a low profile cooler (83mm) - one chosen is ok. Doesn't support ATX size psu - one chosen is ok. And only 1 3.5 inch drive.
It lock you into silverstone slim odd and sfx psu - at premium prices.

For me it'd be too small. It'd be a fiddly build.

If I had to build SFF eg HTPC I'd prefer something the size of a BitFenix Prodigy - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=25_1532&products_id=24729

Yeah, i had a look into a prodigy but I just feel that the raven is more suited to me with its smaller size.
