Silverstone Raven 3 (RV03) ATX Case Review
The Raven series 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.
Although Silverstone's second-generation RV02 executed this unique layout very well, the new Raven 3 (RV03) looks to improve on some of its weaknesses in addition to delivering a smaller footprint at a slightly lower price. The Raven 3 is said to have an MSRP of only $160, which is hard to believe considering the competition's pricing. When we reviewed the RV02, its $180 MSRP surprised us as similar products were selling for over $200.
At just $160, we believe the Raven 3 could quite easily stand in a league of its own despite having some serious competition such as the Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced, Thermaltake Element V Black Edition, Antec DF-85 Black and Antec Twelve Hundred. Let's press on to find out how the RV03 "stacks up.
