Since the original RAVEN RV01 debuted in 2008, the RAVEN team at SilverStone has demonstrated many times how it can truly define or defy computer enthusiasts’ expectations of what a performance PC is capable of in both form and function. For 2014, the Silverstone team had a new target, which was to exceed and reshape the small form factor landscape with yet another breakthrough case design.

The result of this effort is a new line of case products from SilverStone called RAVEN Z. As the first model, this Raven RVZ01 is unlike any SilverStone small form factor cases before it. Utilizing a PCI-E riser and custom designed fans, this slim, 14-liter case is capable of housing some of the biggest consumer graphics cards on the market with superb air cooling performance and the ability to also support liquid cooling. Read on and let’s see if the Silverstone Raven RVZ01 is what we have all been waiting for.

    Dear Sir,

    Over the last few months, I was considering putting together a modern home entertainment center, similar, to the one you showed.

    I was very impressed with your setup – and the way – you illustrated it, piece by piece.

    I hope your example, stays up, for a very long time, to show the world, how to do it, and how to do it right…

    Small question… What was the manufacturer and model number of the equipment rack that you used? I feel that it should be included in the part list – on your page – as part of the setup…

    Take Care,

      Hi Bryan,
      Glad you enjoyed my review of the Silverstone RVZ01 HTPC case, in regards to the equiptment stand I had purchased it over 5 years ago, from a local store here in Southern California called Audio Video Today and no longer have that information available but it is close by so I will make it a point to stop in and get that information for you.

    I sent Vinny a message so he can come answer that question for you. I also was impressed with the HTPC build and that entertainment stand. Does not look like some cheap big lots shelf at all. lol I want!
