Default SilverStone Raven RV02 Full-Tower

SilverStone's Raven RV01 chassis might not have been the most well-received, but the company has attempted to make up for all the mistakes of the initial chassis with a follow-up, the RV02. Fortunately, the company has done just that, and except from a rather minor issue, and possibly its price, this is almost a perfect chassis.

This is one weird but kinda awesome case! Is the Bottom to Top Air ventilation more effective than the front to back one?!
Even though the downside is kinda like the infront of the case!

Heat naturally rises so the concept is solid and the results don't lie. I really like the design although it is strange to see it so deep instead of tall.

I think the case looks amazing. I have CoolerMaster HAF 932 and it looks pretty ugly compared to that haha.

One thing I wanted to point out, you guys didn't take any pics of it being powered. You mentioned how the front glowed blue but didn't have an image of it. I found a pic of it when I googled it and it looks pretty damn bright. I sometimes leave my comp on overnight and I had to tape over the LED lights on my case cause they were so bright.

Anyways overall a great review, I really want one now T.T.

Isn't a 360mm watercooling radiator taking too much space at the bottom of the case ? I'm worry about my 5870 doesn't fitting into it . Would you give the max lenght between the expansion cards slots and the top of the bottom vent please?
Thank you
