SilverStone Raven RVZ02 Review – Build

With a case design as unique as this an initial build is a little more complicated than the average case once we start, it is however pretty easy and the manual is helpful for those who need it. First we installed our PSU, opting for pointing the fan downwards, not necessarily the recommended orientation. More on that later. Next we dropped in the motherboard, four screws, done. The SSD was next, tilting the bay up and sliding it in and then we routed the appropriate cables before adding in the PCIe routers.

Flipping the case over we then get to install our GPU (and if needed, drive). Holding the GPU steady with one of two bracket locations. You can also see in the above image that there is airflow, through a cut out, for the PSU when upside down and that CPU cooler backplates can be easily accessed if needed. Next we screw the sides of the case back on, done!

SilverStone Raven RVZ02 Review – Conclusion

silverstone-rvz02-review-case

Starting with the build quality of the RVZ02-W we have a case which feels nice and solid. The steel body has been assembled well and is a decent thickness, offering plenty of stability for our components. Deciding to use two chambers means there is a nice solid panel running through the core of the case and the plastic front is manufactured well too. The sliding panel could be a little smoother to operate, or maybe spring loaded for some extra quality, but overall no significant issues. External layout is decent with the ports, buttons and optical drive easily accessed.

There are two changes we would make. First a nice set of LEDs around the case windows would be cool, with a button to enable/disable. install some LEDs inside (e.g. A GPU with LED fans) and the case has the ability to look great…so SilverStone should take advantage of that. We would also like to see some sort of mesh on the two windows to catch some of the dust which will otherwise enter the case . Thats the reason, even though it is not recommended) that we decided on placing the PSU fan downwards in our case, if we went for the normal orientation it would be sucking in all the dust in the area through the large window holes. (Silverstone tell us the non windowed version does have filters)

Other than the PSU orientation our build was trouble free. We very much liked the tool free drive bays, they work well. there is a nice amount of room around the PSU to bundle all the spare cable and the dual chamber layout works very well. Ideal for keeping our two main heat sources separate. Its also a great way of allowing plenty of space for larger graphics cards and maximising the flexibility of the case.

Summary: An impressive case from SilverStone. Easy to build in, flexible for the form factor, decent looks and well priced.
