SilverStone Raven RV03
The SilverStone Raven RV03 employs an unconventional design that rotates the motherboard and power supply so they are mounted vertically with the I/O panel facing the top of the chassis. Besides improved cooling courtesy of the "stack effect," this design makes it much easier to access the system's power, display, USB, Ethernet and other connectors.
