Silverstone are pioneers when it comes to high performance chassis products, and their legendary Raven series is right at the front of the pack. This isn't the first Raven product we've reviewed and if it's anything near as good as the (now a few years...

The Raven RV04 supports a variety of motherboards including the larger Extended ATX, SSI-EEB and SSI-CEB form factors. As you can imagine this encompasses the entire range of enthusiast motherboards and when combined with eight expansion slots you get...

I really appreciate the Raven line from SilverStone. To see these crazy ideas come to fruition and have a testbed where some of the latest engineering results can trickle down to their other cases is a fun thing to be a part of (rather than have it be...

Because the hard drive rack and motherboard tray are fully removable from the SilverStone Raven RV04, it really does not matter what you install first, because you could use almost all the room in the world to do your work. This is definitely a welcomed...

For its fourth generation RAVEN case, SilverStone has abandoned the 90° rotated interior component layout and gone with a more traditional configuration. As the RV03 and a revamped edition of the RV02 are both still available for those who want the...

The SilverStone Raven RV04 Case is a full tower case that has a very unique design with distinctive styling and tons of features. There are plenty of drive bays, lots of room to work on the inside, cable management holes, support for large coolers and...

First off, I know that this design will be hit or miss for most potential buyers out there, due to the external design alone. I, for one, don't get the large gap on the sides from the front panel, nor did I like the bulky hinge, but overall, I like the...

The Raven RV04 is an interesting case with its inverted motherboard mounting and right side windowed panel, which is a break from traditional cases for sure. The CPU and VGA support brackets are something you don't see too often, especially both of...

When we reviewed the SilverStone Fortress FT04, we found it to be an excellent performance case hampered by structural and aesthetic problems. Combined with the high price of US$230, it was a tough sell, especially compared to its predecessor. The...

The SilverStone Technology name is synonymous with high quality power supplies and innovative computer cases. Founded in 2003, the company offers a complete line of power supplies, coolers, fans, computer cases, and accessories. As most of you know, we...

Before we talk about the non-standard internal design of the Raven 4 it is worth covering the external aspects first. Overall they are all very positive. The paintwork applied to the main chassis is flawless and the plastic sections do fit well to the...

A decent case from Silverstone, let down only by a poorly designed front panel...

The Raven 4 has been in production for many years now and fans of the series have been eagerly waiting for its arrival and now that it’s finally here what is the verdict? It’s clear to see why the Raven series has such a following. The Raven 2 (RV02)...

SilverStone's cases rarely respect the norms of layout and design, but this approach has seen it produce some masterpieces like the Fortress FT02. The Raven RV04 is another example of this ethos, and with it SilverStone has opted for an upside down...

As is typically the situation with a SilverStone case, we have few doubts over the RV04's cooling capabilities. It may not dominate the cooling charts, and it doesn't appear to be a massive leap forward here, but it's inarguably a great chassis if all...

The long awaited SilverStone Raven RV04 is a strange bird and a mixed bag. I liken it to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 480: for its purpose, it was the best, but you had to make some real compromises. The 480 had ugly power consumption and thermals and nasty...

Nella giornata odierna siamo lieti di proporvi in maniera dettagliata, il nuovo modello del suo case di punta. Stiamo parlando del SilverStone Raven RV04, degno successore del modello RV03. Il nuovo case Full Tower supporta schede madri E-ATX, ATX e...

International Review By Tweakers on 80

Silverstone heeft de Raven-serie een uitstekend vervolg gegeven met de Raven 4. De behuizing is een gedurfd, afwijkend ontwerp van huis-tuin-en-keuken-behuizingen en een welkome afwisseling. Het oog voor detail in de behuizing is aangenaam. Uitsparingen...

L'attività di Silverstone si è sempre contraddistinta per la sua volontà di concretizzare soluzioni particolarmente innovative, ed il settore dei cabinet è senza dubbio il campo nel quale il brand taiwanese ha dimostrato in maniera più chiara tale...

In conclusione possiamo affermare che il Silversotne Raven RV04 si è dimostrato un case che rispetta a pieno le specifiche riportate dal produttore. L'efficienza e le performance a livello di cooling sono a dir poco ottime se consideriamo che non...
