Features & Package

From SilverStone: "After releasing the ground-breaking RAVEN RV01, the first retail chassis to utilize the 90 degree motherboard mounting layout, SilverStone’s RAVEN team quickly went back to the drawing board to create another chassis with even more mass appeal. The resulting RAVEN RV02 is smaller, lighter, and higher performing. Compatibility with Extended-ATX motherboard and server level storage capacity were sacrificed in favor of a more compact dimension and consumer oriented design. Three custom designed 180mm fans and one 120mm fan are included in the RV02 to provide noise to cooling performance ratio that breaks existing benchmark for enthusiast chassis. Additional features such as the inclusion of the 8th expansion slot (for triple or quad graphics cards), all black painted interior, custom designed hard drive suspension cage, and radiator mounts completes a package that will not only appeal to hardware enthusiasts but also to anyone looking to assemble a system that makes a statement with plenty of cooling and very little noise."

In SilverStone’s traditional fashion, the Raven’s box is black with a picture of the windowless version of the case on the front and a short description of some of the features.  The rear of the box has a picture of the interior of the chassis shown in profile, and a more detailed listing of the features.  One side shows the specifications, while the other gives an introduction to the Raven RV02, and a multi-language listing of the features once again. 

Included in the accessory package are a full complement of screws, a well-written instruction manual, an SSD drive bay kit, zip ties and velcro straps for cable management, and a Molex-to-3 pin conversion cable.

Let’s take a closer look at the exterior now.
