Conclusion: Despite our initial reservations, we're glad that SilverStone stuck to its guns and continued to develop its line of rotated-motherboard cases. They might not be ideal for water cooling, but then, few cases available at the moment are.
Summary: Feature rich and very innovative is the best way to describe the SilverStone Raven RV02 Case. This case is up there with the best cases on the market. It has lots of drive bays, plenty of room to work, cable management holes, 4 fans, fits a 3x120mm radiator and much more.
Conclusion: IMPORTANT: Although the rating and final score mentioned in this conclusion are made to be as objective as possible, please be advised that every author perceives these factors differently at various points in time.
Pros: Unique Design, Great Thermal Properties, Quiet Operation, Open Design Great for Working In, Great Price
Conclusion: We were excited to see the new Raven, as it looked like a huge step forward from the original design. With the three 180mm intake fans running practically the whole length of the floor of the case, and the vertical installation of the expansion cards, we were sure we’d see great cooling.

Conclusion: We’d be lying to ourselves if we said there wasn’t a market for premium cases. And just because this one isn’t made of flimsy aluminum doesn’t make it any less of a case. Still, the SilverStone Raven RV02 isn’t a case for budget system builders, as the MSRP puts it dangerously close to $200.
Summary: SilverStone Raven RV02 is a full-tower case targeted to the enthusiast that wants a high-quality high-end full-tower case and liked the concept of the motherboard being 90° rotated but doesn’t want to pay more than USD 200 on a high-end case. Here is a summary of what we found about this product.
