SilverStone Raven RV05 Mid-Tower Case Review

Admin Topics 141

SilverStone is known for producing high quality cases that provide an excellent assortment of cooling options, though at more premium prices than other manufacturers. In 2008 SilverStone released a behemoth of a case that was dubbed the Raven RV01. The RV01 became an immediate enthusiast favorite, with striking looks and a unique design that rotated the motherboard by 90 degrees. Even more unique about the Raven was the “stack effect” cooling design, which focused on creating a vertical airflow that allowed heat to naturally rise out of the case. The RV01 was a case to be desired, but aside from being easily one of the largest tower cases ever made, it sold for a whopping $250.00. SilverStone has released several successors to the RV01, including a miniITX version, but has yet to recapture the feel of the original RV01…until now.
