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. While we each do our best to...

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. At just over...

Here is the final product, fully built and ready to go!Performance:Overall I am impressed with the RV02. Building a system in it was simple, basic cable managment was easy. However; the cooling performance is not as good as I was hoping. Coming from...

Overall quality of this case is excellent. There are a few drawbacks like the hard drive cage and some minor cable routing issues, but they were not enough to really detract from this fine piece of hardware. The fit and finish alone rank this high on...

Who would've thought that something as simple as rotating a motherboard 90 degrees could have such an impact on the efficiency of a system? Silverstone. And the Raven 2 is an excellent example of the results, with a revolutionary cooling system and...

The chassis world turned topsy-turvy (again!) Like its older and larger sibling, the Raven RV01 (reviewed April 2009 as part of our full-tower roundup), Silverstone’s Raven RV02 is an all-black steel and plastic chassis with a defining feature:...

PCWizKid was impressed with the Raven RV02 overall aesthetics, functionality and airflow performance. The ability to put in multiple large video cards other enthusiast hardware components for the overall value is terrific. The custom cooling...

So then, after all the testing what's the verdict? Starting from the overall design, I really like it. Hidden under a desk, it very reasonably sized, in fact sitting there next to the Fortress it's just about the same height. While, without...

The SilverStone Raven Two continues in the path forged by its predecessor, with some interesting changes, both positive and not so positive. For cooling of hot systems with minimal noise, the Raven Two is SPCR's new champ, by a small but clearly...

It’s very rare to deal with a product as well thought out as the Silverstone Raven 02. After spending a couple weeks with this case we have nothing negative to report. We feel strongly about recommending this case to any member of the enthusiast...

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,...

What can we say that hasn’t already been stated? This case is simply amazing. We’ve had some people around the office say that this thing is just too much, but when asked if they would use the case they wouldn’t hesitate to get one for...

SilverStone -- or any case manufacturer -- has finally done it... It has been two years since the introduction of the Temjin TJ10 (or three years since the nearly identical TJ09), but finally if we had to pick between the Temjin TJ10 or the Raven...

The Raven RV02 was one of the easiest cases we’ve worked with recently. Its thoughtful features and potential for expandability, as well as its fair price, make the RV02 a great case for almost any...

SilverStone had a rather difficult job to do when designing the new Raven chassis, because the original Raven was, well, rather original. Putting minor gripes aside, the company has done a pretty good job with the Raven RV-02That's not to say it...

The Raven RV02 continues SilverStone's tradition of solid well engineered cases. To be quite honest, it's hard to know what to say about the Raven 2 chassis, that you have not most likely already figured out for yourself. There is no point in...

Video Review: 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...

SilverStone has taken the design innovation of the RV-01 and improved it with their Raven 2 case. The construction and installation of computer components in this case is easy and the case is fully featured. The Raven 2 does not have external SATA or...

The Silverstone RV02 Raven2 is a perfect example of what can happen when you refine a good idea into a great one. The RV01 was an extremely large case designed to accommodate just about anything. The chassis also showed what could be done using ...

Everything about the Raven RV-02 chassis is simply awesome. SilverStone has come up with a winner of a chassis, that shows their continuation of thinking outside the box. Installation was a bit odd from I was used to, but what do you expect this...
