  • Three 180mm fans for unprecedented positive pressure and stack effect cooling

INTRODUCTION

SilverStone case

After releasing the ground-breaking RAVEN RV01, the first retail chassis to utilize the 90-degree motherboard mounting layout, SilverStone's RAVEN team quickly went back to the drawing board to create another chassis with even more mass appeal. The resulting RAVEN RV02 is smaller, lighter, and higher performing. Compatibility with Extended-ATX motherboard and server level storage capacity were sacrificed in favor of a more compact dimension and consumer oriented design.


SilverStone case

Three custom designed 180mm fans and one 120mm fan are included in the RV02 to provide noise to cooling performance ratio that breaks existing benchmark for enthusiast chassis. Additional features such as the inclusion of the eighth expansion slot (for triple or quad graphics cards), all black painted interior, custom designed hard drive suspension cage, and radiator mounts completes a package that will not only appeal to hardware enthusiasts but also to anyone looking to assemble a system that makes a statement with plenty of cooling and very little noise.

5 out of 5 eggsBeen a Great Case

Pros: I have owned this case for over two years. My last major pc upgrade. The only reason I didn't buy here was I got a cheaper price with free shipping on Amazingzon. Most of the rest I bought here.
Amazingly cool and quiet case. I still run a 2500k@4.6 all day and night without any issue at all. Using a NH-D14, I can run 4.8ghz if I want, but why push when my gaming doesn't really demand it. Case is very quality like others said.

Cons: Case is long but not an issue with me due to my large desk and office space. Case is also heavy when filled with Hardware. You don't want to move it around too often.

Other Thoughts: I have enjoyed this case so much I just decided to write this review in appreciation.
Sometimes I try to imagine how I would improve this design. Its a fun challenge.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Design, Great Cable Management

Pros: Great airflow (keeps system about 5*C cooler than previous case), 90* mobo rotation works well (quick, easy access to all I/O ports without crawling behind a desk), quiet, easy on the eyes, easy hot swap configuration, tons of room for cable management. I could go on, but it should suffice to say that everything I don't list in the "cons" section is a positive about this case. It's fantastic

Cons: -The power supply configuration is a little different than most cases. It's been a while since I've been inside my rig, so forgive me if my memory is fuzzy, but you need to be careful which PSU you select. The intake port can be blocked by the case, potentially. It wasn't an issue for me with the PSU I already had, thankfully, but it would be worth looking into before you commit to buying this case or a new PSU that won't work well with this particular unit.
-Fan controllers are on top of the case, have to remove top panel to access. This isn't a big con for me since I just leave my fans on low unless I absolutely need the cooling boost. The difference in temps between low and high is very minimal (~5*C for me under load, usually).
-Dust filter access requires the removal of a side panel.
-Cable management could be made easier with more tie-down points, but again, it's not a big complaint. I had more than enough room for my cables.

Other Thoughts: There are certainly full towers out there that make a DIY build easier, but I don't believe any of them have the combination of looks, quietness, coolness, and utility that the RV-02 has. At its current price of $200+, I can't say I would fully recommend it, however. I bought this case for $150 well over a year ago on a special. Paying $200 when an option like the HAF 932 is out there for 25% less with comparable airflow and better cable management (although the 932 is a hideous looking beast) would be tough for a cheap guy like me. If you feel like the price is in your range, you won't regret buying this.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case

Pros: Great airflow. Smart design. My 580 GTX at idle with the fan on Max will cool down to 34c vs 40c with my old case where the card was in the horizontal position.

Cons: Because of the layout I had to move my tower or I could have bought new cables or extensions to connect my monitor, sound etc.

I wish the case had a built in speed controller for the fans.

Other Thoughts: Bought the case from a competitor for a far greater price, sorry Newegg.

Overall happy with the purchase, great case.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: Great airflow due to the 90 degree rotated motherboard.

Plenty of room for video cards.

Good cable management setup.

Nice HD setup.

Great setup for going watercooled.

Looks really good.

Cons: CPU cutout is a little too high for the two LGA 1155 motherboards I had.

SATA hot swap connector was not quite right - had to push the connector in one direction and the HD in the other to get them to connect up, which meant taking off the back cover too.

As mentioned in another review, the PSU cutout is a little low for some PSU's. I'm even using a Silverstone ST1000-P, which you'd think would work perfectly since it's a Silverstone, but that's not the case. My PSU sits to high and it's fan is partially covered. I don't anticipate any issues here in the long run, but it's slightly annoying.

While the sleeved fan cables are great, it would have been nice had they sleeved the front panel connectors too and used a black Molex connector for the front LED.

All in all, these are minor issues for me, but they do add up enough to deduct one egg.

Other Thoughts: The case wasn't actually as big as I expected. Coming from a CM Cosmos, it's actually much shorter, albeit deeper, than my old case. However, since the motherboard is rotated 90 degrees, my Raven sticks out the same amount as my Cosmos did from under my desk because with no cable connectors coming out of the back, it can slide all the way to the back of the desk frame. Granted, I'm using a metal frame and glass desk that doesn't have a back 'wall', so this wouldn't be the case if you were using a 'normal' desk.

All minor issues aside, I love this case. Since this was a new build, I don't really have comparable temps from the Cosmos, but on a stock clock, I have yet to get north of 58 degrees on the CPU with Prime95. I'm currently using a Hyper N520 until the Swiftech H220 cooler comes out. Once I have the Swiftech in place, I'll see how the temps go on a 4.7ghz OC.

It is a bit odd that everything is flipped 180 degrees on the setup with the window on the right side instead of the 'normal' left side. I had to rearrange my whole desk and space around it to change from the Cosmos.

5 out of 5 eggsThe perfect case

Pros: I upgraded to this case after using an NZXT Phantom for two years, and I am so glad! The rotated motherboard configuration really does work, 7-10C cooler than in my Phantom (which had the extra fans installed). The case is also considerably quieter than the Phantom, I was expecting the "Air Penetrator" fans to be much louder, but they are very quiet.

I didn't read about this but one of the HDD slots has a pre-wired power and sata connection build in, so you can literally "plug and play". I really hope in the future, they allow the option to have every drive cage like this.

Overall building my system with this case was really enjoyable, and I took all day installing my components slowly. The system looks edgy yet sleek, has great metal build quality, is quiet, and you can tell the engineers really took their time in designing this case.

9.75/10 would happily buy again!

Cons: Ideally it would be great to have one more fan pulling air out of the top, but as it stands the case is amazing.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this via another popular retailer with named after a popular souuth american river...

5 out of 5 eggswow

Pros: Very Large, moves a ton of air. noticed about a 5-10 degree change in temps from a traditional style case.
great cable management and enough room to fit my GTX 260 wich is a huge video card. very well built, seems very solid and little features that are nice like any place you need to use a screwdriver there are notches in the case for easy access.

Cons: you have to remove the top cover to remove the side pannels. I have 1 of the bottom fans that hits the plastic on the slide rail. The vent on the back for the PSU doesn't seem to line up with my PSU fan, most of it does but it seems they werent thinking about people running smaller PSU's (antec 750)

Other Thoughts: Very nice case, in the future I will buy more of these. as long as I get this fan replaced.

3 out of 5 eggsA good air-cooling case but has SEVERAL ISSUES...

Pros: -Big rectagular window
-Excellent airflow
-Great fans
-Very tactile, very easy to press power/reset buttons
-Dust filters for all 3 bottom fans as well as PSU intake
-Built-in fan controllers for the three 180mm air penetrator fans
-Can fit almost any size GPU, PSU, and CPU heatsink

Cons: -Have to remove the top grill to access the fan controllers
-Have to remove side panel to access dust filters
-Barely enough space for cable management
-Placement of PSU intake cut-out is too low for shorter PSUs as it covers part of the PSU fan
-No grommets for cable management holes
-Not enough tie-down points for zip-ties

Other Thoughts: The drive mounting system is SEMI-tool-less; i.e., the hard drives require screws to be mounted onto the drive rails before the drive rails can be slid into the drive cage.

This isn't a perfect case, nowhere near perfect at all. However, if you're buying this case, then more likely than not you're buying it for its direct, uninterrupted, stacked airflow design. There are many other cases out there that solve all of the issues that the RV-02 has. However, if you're one of those people who would rather have superior airflow & temperatures, then the cons of the RV-02 might be something that you can live with.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: Has enough space for three large video cards (gtx680) without issues. Nice and quiet, even when fans are at max.

Cons: Comes with only one sata hot swap connector.

4 out of 5 eggsHuge Case!

Pros: Love the layout. Lots of cooling capacity.
The Intel liquid cooler fit like a glove in the upper fan position, looks like a stock part when installed.

It even fit a slightly larger mainboard then indicated in the specs.

Cons: Bottom fans had some plastic overcast on the cages which the blades rubbed on, had to shave that off to make it quiet.
No PC Speaker, swapped one in from a old case.

SATA cages are upside down so the power supply cables are keyed in the wrong direction. THese days most PS SATA power are 90 degree oriented, so I had to find some Y cables to power the HDD. The PS cables wouldn't reach otherwise.

Other Thoughts: Build:
Xeon E5-2670 CPU
GIGABYTE GA-X79S-UP5
Kingston 64GB ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600
Intel BXRTS2011LC Liquid Cooler
GeForce GTX 680
CORSAIR HX Series 850W PS
2x Western Digital RE4 Enterprise HDD
Mushkin Enhanced Chronos SSD

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case!!!

Pros: This thing is amazing to look at. I love the new mobo orientation that Silverstone has been offering. I was considering either the Temjin or the fortress but preferred the look and styling of this one, and was definitely not disappointed. Temps across the board are down ~5C and runs quieter than any other case I've had. USB 3 on the front is nice. I love the IO ports being up top, making them much more accessible. Plenty of space in the case for any of your hardware needs. Worth every penny

Cons: Well, best case IMO for the opinion. It is possible to find it cheaper if you know where to shop around, but then again, Newegg makes it worth the extra money for their customer support.

Other Thoughts: Very high quality case. Aluminum is solid. You can see quality in every detail of this case. From the rubber grommets in the HDD trays, to the substantially thick window bolted on, not riveted. This thing is nice!
