SilverStone RV05 Black Plastic outer shell, steel body Computer Case
The RAVEN RV05, the fifth edition in the exciting RAVEN enthusiasts chassis series continues the tradition of breaking and evolving the standards of desktop PC design. With a bold move that sees the removal of all 5.25" drive bays, the RAVEN team engineers again saw the opportunity to re-utilize the 90 degree rotated design.
Previous RAVEN models with 90-degree layout often had to compromise on space efficiency due to fixed length of the motherboard in rotated orientation. The elimination of 5.25" bays solves this issue naturally and enables RV05 to be even more balanced in terms of design than if the same were done to a traditionally-layout case. With most of the wasted space eliminated from RV05, engineers were thus able to better optimize the case for the most important performance-affecting components such as CPU and GPUs. The result is an expertly-engineered ATX chassis that is just as capable in terms of compute power and heat dissipation as the first RAVEN chassis, the RV01, but in half the size.
Equipped with latest revision Air Penetrator fans that include three speed switches and modern touches such as externally removable filters and tool-less panels, the RV05 has everything that PC enthusiasts could wish for in a compact, high performance computer case that is not only cool and quiet, but also easy to build and maintain. For those not wanting to constantly step up in case size to obtain top-level performance, the RAVEN RV05 is the perfect solution and it may also represent a glimpse into the future of mainstream enthusiasts PC design.

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...
