SilverStone Raven RV02
Great Thermal Properties.
Open Design Great for Working In.
Innovative motherboard placement.
Clever new design.
Less Plastic Could Be Used.
Drive Cages Could Be Reoriented.
Should have 8th Expansion Slot.
Could use extra room behind 5.25" bays.
Hard drive cage seems lazy.
Top 5.25” drive bay could be very difficult to use with SATA optical drives due to restricted space caused by the I/O bays.

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...90

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:...90

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...-
