SilverStone RAVEN RV02B-EW-USB3.0 Matte black reinforced plastic outer shell, 0.8mm Steel body ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Window Side Panel with 2X USB3.0 ports
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

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

GIGABYTE GA-X79S-UP5-WIFI LGA 2011 Intel C606 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Power components laid out well, runs very cool.
SLI capable (although I've not bought a second geforce to try it)
ECC Unregistered Works (but I had to contact Gigabyte to find that out, unregistered is not listed in the manual or their website)

Cons: First board had to be RMAed, would not POST.
Takes forever to POST, from the time the power switch is pushed until it makes any indication of life is ~40 seconds.

Other Thoughts: Build:
Xeon E5-2670 CPU
Kingston 64GB ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1600
Intel BXRTS2011LC Cooler
GeForce GTX 680
CORSAIR HX Series 850W PS
