Summary: SilverStone -- or any case manufacturer -- has finally done it...
It has been two years since the introduction of the
(or three years since the nearly identical
but finally if we had to pick between the Temjin TJ10 or the Raven RV02, we would
pick the second-generation Raven. The Raven RV02 has dethroned the Temjin TJ10
as being our favorite chassis to date. However, both products are great and we
would be perfectly happy with either enclosure.

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. But for that $200, you get a heck of a deal. The case is well made with a great fit and finish, an incredible design, and it’s a joy to work in and be around.
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.
In summary, we think SilverStone hit bull’s eye with Raven RV02. It brings the innovative design introduced with Raven RV01 but at a more affordable price.

The quality of construction is second to none and although many people may balk at the mention of plastic and steel, the case is expertly put together and feels both strong to work with and substantial in all key areas.

This meant not only did we have to build a chassis up to show quality but we also got to use the system for a solid week in some pretty demanding conditions but also talk to the public to get a feel for their instant...
