Fabulous Case

Jeremy C., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I have a adaptor on the DVI port from the back of my video card, so the top thingy doesn't fit on. But it would work fine with a flexible dongle. Not the case's fault, just a comment. Really it still looks nice up on my desk with out the top.
  • Pros: Short version: This case is great. Long version: I've owned this case for over a year now and i haven't had any reason to complain. I have my dual EVGA 670 SC's and i've never noticed any excessive heat. During gaming, the chip temps rarely exceed 65 degrees. Under full load, this case manages to...
  • Cons: I've really had to stretch for anything to put here. The top case cover thingy (that snaps on and off) seems *slightly* flimsy. Works fine though. Besides that, nothing really.

Love It... with a caveat

Mark M., Newegg
14 August 2014
  • Summary: The power supply positioning caused me some problems. Power cord feeds into the case through the bottom and attaches to your power supply internally via a supplied cable. That cable attaches to your PSU from inside the case at a flush, 90 degree angle.
  • Pros: Love the design, top loaded ports make for super easy access. Also: Really appreciate the filters on the case bottom, should make future dusting that much easier. Full ATX is sooo roomy!
  • Cons: Why is this form field required?

Best case I've ever built in

Matthew M., Newegg
18 May 2014
  • Summary: Also happen to think its the best looking case I've ever seen.
  • Pros: Incredible design. I'm not sure why more case manufacturers have adopted this model. The 90 degree rotation makes for an incredibly efficient cooling design. The result is amazing temps, with low fan speeds, and a cleaner case as a result of the lower airflow in combination with the filters. Also...
  • Cons: None. However, if you're not willing to think out your build it may be a little different for someone use to a standard case.

I love it.

  • Summary: I had to remove the top fan guard for a push/pull setup to work. I wish the metal for the screw holes was flat instead of round so I might have had enough room to leave it on. I also wish the power cord could exit the top rear with the other wires.
  • Pros: Great airflow design; Having rear panel on the top makes it a lot easier to plug/unplug wires; Filters are good quality; Most wires can be routed behind motherboard plate; Power supply cord was long enough for me, no problems connecting it; Hard drives mount behind motherboard plate and because o...
  • Cons: The filters on the bottom made maneuvering the case awkward during setup; The handle is good quality, but there needs to be a second place to grab in the front. I only see 2 front mounting locations for fans, which are located directly behind the bays. The description says there are 4 total?

  • Summary: Be careful/use a magnetic screwdriver when adding/removing drives if the case is standing vertically, if they drop in to the bottom they're a pain to retrieve. The 90° mobo tray is really nice, but keep in mind the vertical airflow when looking at CPU coolers.
  • Pros: -Stunningly good looking. I bought the case for a combination of aesthetics and performance, and it delivers superbly on both fronts. The window allows for full view of everything you want to show off (mobo, CPU, cards), and nothing you don't (drive and their bays). -Great airflow. The vertical o...
  • Cons: The one real complaint is that I don't see any way to mount a hard drive in the front bays with a fan installed in the rear fan mount position (between the bays and the motherboard). Not worth knocking an egg off, but a little disappointing. The sideways-mounted PSU means that if you take the win...

Nice case

Jeremy S., Newegg
27 May 2013
  • Summary: No plastic parts were broken on mine Really wish case makers used something like gorilla glass, or at least a plastic that doesn't scratch if you look at it funny Cable management is kind of compromised by installing harddrives on the back, and it's not really simple cable management like normal big...
  • Pros: Easy to use magnetic fan filters for the bottom intakes Quiet, the two AP181 (180mm intakes) are very quiet on low speed through the integrated fan controller, the top exhaust fan is good, it's like a small step down from the scythe slipstream 12 but it's not really audible Good airflow Good wind...
  • Cons: The four rod things that screw into the back to mount the harddrives aren't quite perfect, you could accidentally loosen them from the case and make it difficult to get the hdd mount out. Also another reviewer stated the side hdd mounts aren't secure, but they are quite secure. If you keep this n...

Best Case

Joseph V., Newegg
26 May 2013
  • Summary: I "would" buy it again. In fact I have, 3 more times. I've replaced it with another Raven 3 when it broke (Not a reflection of the case's durability). And I've built two other machines using Raven 3s.
  • Pros: Air flow, rear handle, intake filters, metal frame, incredible.
  • Cons: I don't like the "snap" locks for the bays. I actually broke one when I was first looking at it (tried to pull it all the way up to 90 degrees). It isn't as long as the Raven 2 was, so you can run out of space if your mobo is too long. But it is taller, allowing me to fit both my graphics cards i...

Awesome case!!!

  • Pros: Huge amount of space. Airflow is great if you are buying GPUs that are not opened air. Just got it today, but haven't used it yet cuz CPU hasn't come home yet.
  • Cons: Only one could be more organized manual.

21 March 2013
  • Pros: -Tons of space -Great build quality -Lots of Airflow -Comes with fans -Multitude of HDD mounts I used this for my second build because its 90* rotated mobo tray has all the outputs at top, which is super for me because I don't have a desk big enough to put this on, or enough room under, makes con...
  • Cons: I wouldn't really call them cons, at least not enough of cons to warrant a removal of an egg, but I wish there was a way to route your peripheral wires through the case's top covering as opposed to going under the handle at the back, but that's solve-able with my garage's workbench, hehe. I had a...

  • Pros: Great case. Love the 90 degree rotation on the MoBoard. Added two additional 120 MM fans and have great air flow. Very solid build. Like the isolators on the hard drive mounting to keep things quiet. Very quiet with the 180 MM case fans. I would build with the case again.
  • Cons: None
