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
