4 out of 5 eggsCompact, excellent air flow, cool design

This review is from: SilverStone RAVEN Series RV05B Black Plastic outer shell, steel body Computer Case

Pros: I love the 90 degree turned motherboard design. I am no engineer, but we know heat rises. have huge fans drawing cool air from the bottom and expelling out the top is common sense. However there is another benefit. Over the years ive seen my fair share of bent motherboards or video cards being torqued against gravity. Generally you have 1-2 screws at one end and a pci-e slot holding up a huge video card, over time it stresses the motherboard and video card PCB. with a 90 degree motherboard the video card can rest straight up and down with gravity instead of against it.

Excellent cable management for M-ATX boards, with a full ATX it can be a little cramped.

Cons: The case is smaller and flimsy compared to other cases in his price point or my old RV03. Very limited space for hard drives. two 3.5" drives two 2.5" drives on the back side of the motherboard. Its a clever use of space, but in my scenario it was the wrong case for my needs.

Other Thoughts: For my needs an Antec P280 would of been better suited. If your a gamer / overclocker looking for a compact high flow case, this is worth checking out.

I posted a video review of this on youtube if you want to see the unboxing and computer assembly.

4 out of 5 eggscheapest 90 degree case

This review is from: SilverStone RAVEN Series RV05B Black Plastic outer shell, steel body Computer Case

Pros: If you want air and are like me and don't feel comfortable using water cooling then this is prob your best option in terms of price. With my mobo optimizing fans' flow and the strix gtx the hot air just rises and the case is quiet as a mouse. Cooler master 212 evo fits nicely and when mounted horizontally will complement this case's hear stack or heat rising effect.

Cons: My case's front usb 3's are a great feature except only one works.

The case is a tight squeeze so make sure you test your hdd's before you put them in bay or you'll have to disconnect power and reset from mobo so you can remove tray. (My HDD DOA)

Other Thoughts: A pull fan at the top next to input/output ports isn't necessary.

5 out of 5 eggsRaven RV05

This review is from: SilverStone RAVEN Series RV05B Black Plastic outer shell, steel body Computer Case

Pros: Comes with a magnetic filter for the PSU vent.
- Bottom fan filter pulls out from the front.
- I personally like the 90 degree motherboard mounting.
- Comes with a rubber cover for the top I/O ports.
- Compact size even for ATX motherboards.

Cons: It's only my first day with the case, but:
- The side panels will take a little getting used to as far as removing them.
- Not sure about PSU length with the attached 3.5 inch drive cage.

Other Thoughts: I've had Raven cases before and this one goes back to the older series. Seems like the RV04 was a flop, so Silverstone did themselves good with this edition, IMHO.
Once my build is complete, I will do a follow up / edit of this review. Overall, for the price, if your considering it, do it...
