INTRODUCTION

SilverStone RVZ01B Black Reinforced plastic outer shell, steel body Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case SFX Power Supply

Since the original RAVEN RV01 debuted in 2008, the RAVEN team at SilverStone has demonstrated many times how it can truly define or defy computer enthusiasts' expectations of what a performance PC is capable of in both form and function. For 2014, the team had a new target, which is to exceed and reshape the small form factor landscape with another breakthrough case design. The result of this effort is a new line of case products called RAVEN Z. As the first model, RVZ01 is unlike any SilverStone small form factor cases before it.

Utilizing a PCI-E riser and custom designed fans, this slim case is capable of housing the biggest consumer graphics card on the market with superb air cooling performance and the ability to support liquid cooling*. Designed for use in either vertical or horizontal orientation, it can be placed comfortably in any space-constrained environment that requires a powerful PC. For those that have been waiting to make the move to small form factor computing with a truly standout case to build with, the RVZ01 is it.

5 out of 5 eggshigh end case

Pros: a dream coming true, filters for fans, space for everything without piling up components, no heat issues with or without case fans,remove the PCI connector if you're not using a video card, this is a gamer case not a HTPC case unless you stand up the case. recommend the SFX PS from Silverstone 450w gold, nice and quiet.

Cons: using a slim drive, reformat HDD and then i did not know how to eject the dvd with no OS, every time after restart i was rebooting on dvd , after reopening the case and removing the dvd i was finally able to load the OS dvd, so.... please, put a eject button on this case.

one of the 120mm case fans was broken, no damage on the box, more of the silverstone problem than newegg, anybody stepping up to the plate? i don't want to RMA the case.

Other Thoughts: Don't secure PS to the case until installing HDD and plugging wires unless you like doing things twice.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone. To prevent your system from booting off DVD after every restart, please change your boot order to HDD from the motherboard BIOS or UEFI menu. For the broken fan, please contact our US office at:

5 out of 5 eggsKeeps my GTX 780 very cool

Pros: Very good looking case with targeted cooling for your GPU and CPU. compact takes up very little desk space when set up vertically. Comes with rubber feet for both orientations. Small enough to be used as a home theater gaming PC.

Cons: There is a ton of misinformation regarding CPU selection, PSU's and wattage in regard to higher end components with gaming in mind. I am here to state that you can build a system with great specs even with this particular PSU

Other Thoughts: full system specs: Raven RVZ01b case, mini itx MSI Z87I GAMING AC mobo, noctua NH-L9i CPU cooler, MSI GTX 780 twin Frozr, 8gb kingston Hyper X Beast 2400 mhz ram, kingston Hyper X 240gb SSD, HGST Travelstar 2.5-Inch 1TB 7200RPM HDD, silverstone 450 watt gold efficiency fully modular PSU, silverstone flat cables.

5 out of 5 eggsTough to build in but very worth it

Pros: Looks great in the Home Theater
Fits most full sized GPUs
Keeps everything cool
Compact internal layout
Filters for intake fans
Plenty of screws for different mounting schemes
Can be watercooled

Cons: Compact internal layout
Only supports SFX PSUs
Only comes with two slim 120mm fans (seriously they couldn't have just added the third one?)
Water cooling only works if you use a half height GPU (or no GPU)

Other Thoughts: Check the size and power pin requirements of your GPU BEFORE you buy one! I bought a HIS R9 280X card that barely fit and needed some help getting it to fit and plus it has two 8-pin connectors and until SIlverstone releases their 600w SFX PSU it will not work here. Needless to say I returned it for another GPU.
Compact layout makes it very difficult to put your components in. It definitely requires some planning ahead and pulling and replacing components. There is plenty of room to route cables etc. but you have to be creative. Other wise the is a small open area near the PSU and the retaining wall where you can just "stuff" your extra cables if you are lazy or don't care. There isn't and intake our vents in this are so no worries about blocking airflow here.
Which brings me to the PSU. this case only takes a SFX form factor PSU and as far as I can tell there aren't many on the market save for Silverstone's. 450w is as high as they go ATM but that is plenty for most builds. I got the modular 80gold rated PSU so it powers everything just fine.
All in all it was tough but rewarding build which sits well under my home theater and very quietly I might add.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent small form factor design

Pros: Small. Low height design: can be placed on a shelf under the TV. Option to stand vertically with included rubber feet. Fans blow air inwards through dust filters which forces the hotter air inside the case to be pushed out of vents. Dust filters block a lot of dust and are attached magnetically to the case making it easy to remove and clean. Can house a 13 inch graphic card. Graphic card support bracket included to prevent long video cards from sagging. Bracket is well desgined and even worked around my extra wide Gigabyte card's heat sink. Comes with a one-to-two system fan spliter, although a one-to-three would have been nicer.

Cons: Interior can get cramped especially with a SSD+HD combo. The PP05-E cables make things easier though.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these. One build for the office, and one for a SteamBox build under the TV.

SteamBox build:
CPU: i7-4790K
MB: Gigabyte GA-Z97N-WIFI
RAM: G.SKILL Ares 8GB 1600 CL8 (XMP profile1)
GPU: Gigabyte 4GB Geforce 760 OC Rev2.0
PSU: Silverstone SFX 450W Gold + PP05-E Cables
SSD: Samsung Pro 512GB
Blu: Panasonic UJ265
OS: Win7 64bit
Oth: Logitech K400 Mouse/Touchpad
Xbox 360 Controller + Eneloop Batteries

With this setup, the GPU will be the bottleneck if 60fps can't be acheived, so there's no point overclocking the CPU right now. I'll upgrade the GPU to Maxwell next year to improve this build.

I also bought two 3Dbi antennas to replace the MB antenna to make the case even lower profile.

I'm guessing my build would use 350W-400W max at full load. Watch out if you install Samsung's SSD software and use the OS optimization feature. It will change your default power profile to one that disables CPU idle (Intel Speedstep). This wastes power for no real benefit.

4 out of 5 eggsAesthetically pleasing, good quality.

Pros: Great case design, plenty of ventilation, dust filters, decently small, Scythe 2 fans.

Cons: The design is a little bigger than anticipated.
I didn't like how my card was kind of floppy in the brace, despite using the supporting brace they provide. It almost seems like something should be holding the back of the card, instead of the middle. It was worrisome should I let go to grab/ maneuver something else, as the card's back would then be left to droop away from the entire assembly.

My biggest peeve was that my card (MSI R9 280x Gaming edition) has a metal backing and it would not fit into the card slot with the case's power socket secured into the chassis. I had to unscrew it and let the socket hang out the back to fit my card. It's frustrating because you can see how there is at least another 3/4 inch outward that the socket could have gone in the first place, as to help insure graphics card clearance.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm happy with the case, despite having had to let the AC socket hang out of the back, but you can't tell with the case sitting horizontally.

As mentioned, the case was larger than I had expected. It's actually about an inch taller than my wife's Micro ATX case(if stood vertically), however, it is less thick than a typical MATX case.

Also, by default the fan layout makes no sense. A fan blows on the graphics card which is good, but the top fan blows down on the board/ CPU cooler. In most cases this is good too, but in this case what happens is the two fans drawing inward (with non drawing out) cause a collision and the air just gets stuck inside the case getting hot...and I'm not overclocking. I had a few heat related crashes from this equalizing pressure that occurs. My solution was to reverse the fan on my CPU to blow upward(away from the mainboard) like the Xbox 360 Slim/ Xbox One and face the CPU positioned case fan to blow outward as well. This created flow and my overall temps were exceptionally cooler, both physically and in HWMonitor(app). You could literally feel the difference by placing your hands on the top vent, and on the sides of the unit where the grating is....MUCH Cooler!

2 out of 5 eggsUnusable

Pros: Small, good quality, can hold a larger graphics card. Looks good.

Cons: Screw holes on graphics card support bracket weren't aligned, so was unable to remove the initial screws in installation step 2. Possible solution is to drill them out so I can proceed with the build.

Other Thoughts: This might be a much better review if I was able to install my components into the case.

5 out of 5 eggsPITA to build in, but worth it

Pros: Layout makes excellent use of limited airflow. High quality and quiet case fans that move plenty of air even with the dust filters installed. Everything is safely secured, and there's even a little bracket with some rubber to hold the graphics card in place. All the materials from the metal chassis to the plastic shroud and aesthetic bits are very high quality and very sturdy.

Cons: As should be expected with SFF builds, actually building inside this case is quite a process especially since everything is isolated. DO NOT forget to plug anything in before final assembly, or you will bash your head against the wall. Even the power switch for the PSU is impossible to get to after full assembly.

It also takes quite a bit of planning to route cables. There's very limited room to stuff the excess, and you must be very careful not to leave anything in the path of any fan blades.

Other Thoughts: System specs:
i5-4570S
Gigabyte GA-B85N-WIFI ITX motherboard
Powercolor Radeon R9 270 (OC'd to 1050/1500)
Crucial 1 x 8GB DDR3 1600 low profile
Crucial M500 240GB
Silverstone RVZ01
Silverstone 450W Bronze PSU

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Everything fit, well. I didn't go modular on the power supply yet I didn't feel the cables really got in the way. it stays cool, quiet, and if you can get a right angle HDMI and a left angle power cable you can fit this in a pretty tight spot in an entertainment center. The fans are quiet and good quality.
The box came with everything I was hoping for and more - including little rubber legs if you lay it flat and more significant rubber holders for standing it up vertically. Even filters for the fans.

Cons: 1. If you have a 3.5hdd it'll sit on top of the power supply. While there is a thin sheet of metal between them, your HDD will get hot. Hasn't been an issue yet, but I believe it could become one. If you're like me and you just wanted to drop your 4tb 3.5 in here to store all your media, you may want to look into additional hdd cooling solutions. If they'll fit.

2. When laying flat it's sort of hard to make the case fan that blows into the video card not eat it's own cable. Or for the video card's power cables not to fall into that fan. I spent more time routing those cables than anything else. However, once I got that down, it worked great.

3. It's Really hard to screw the power supply cradle back in once you take it out. There is like half an inch between the edge of it and the wall and all the cables for the USB3.0s, power switch and LEDs share a nook with those screws.

Other Thoughts: The con's aren't serious, they just make me spend more time with the case during initial setup. The only one that worries me is the HDD but so far it hasn't created issues, it just concerns me.

I really do recommend this case. It's a bit bigger than the original x-box and has the potential to be your own steambox without cutting any corners.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Little Case

Pros: Able to handle a dedicated non-slim video card. Can accommodate water cooling. Front side USB 3 ports. Stays cool in the inside. Sleek look. Removable rubber feet for vertical placement.

Cons: A little bigger than expected. Really tight to work in. Hard to route wires. SFX power supply required. Fingerprint magnet as mentioned by others.

Other Thoughts: Running an i5-4670k Haswell chip with a Cooler Master Seidon 120m. If going this route, make sure the video card is not too long as the radiator will only fit in the front compartment area of the case due to the stiff tubes. You will also need to remove the vertical bracket near the power supply.
It is also recommended to get a modular power supply and a flat wire cable set like the Silverstone PP05-E as routing is very difficult.
