Back in December we looked at the SilverStone Fortress FT01. While we have seen many remarkable cases from SilverStone over the years like the Temjin TJ10 and Sugo, the Fortress series was a brand new line-up and introduced several innovations into this $200 USD enclosure. The Fortress FT01 ended up being an excellent case and had received our Phoronix Editor's Choice Award. Besides the new Fortress series, SilverStone has also introduced the Raven series. We have already reviewed the SilverStone Raven Mouse, but now there is a Raven chassis. This chassis is really like nothing else we have ever seen before, so read on as we explore the Raven RV01.

Features:

- Micro ATX, ATX, Extended ATX Compatibility
- 5 x External 5.25" Drive Bays
- 6 x Internal 3.5" Drive Bays
- 7 Expansion Slots
- 1 x 120mm Top Fan
- 2 x 180mm Bottom Fans
- 280 x 616 x 660 mm
- 15.0 Kilograms
- Motherboard Tray Rotated 90 Degrees

SilverStone always packages their products well, especially when it comes to their high-end cases. The SilverStone Raven RV01 arrived in pristine condition. The cardboard box was slightly damaged on the outside, but on the inside, there was a Styrofoam and cardboard mold to protect the case and other safeguards. The box itself is quite huge and is likely the biggest ATX case package we have ever received. Included with the EATX chassis is the installation guide and all needed installation hardware.
