    Actually the gold award is the same in both reviews - it has just been changed visually - we revised our awards system this year. Both of those cases got the gold (top award). The Raven 2 has better air flow, although it is a much newer development when compared to the older coolermaster chassis. This is why the Raven 2 also got the performance award - it has the best airflow of any chassis we have tested on the market to this date.

    Here is the new award system http://www.driverheaven.net/articles.php?articleid=133

    First of all, great review, thanks for that.
    I've got a question whether or not a 5870 or 5970 will fit. Did you try it or can you guess it?
    The 5870 is half an inch longer and the 5970 is ~1.6 inches longer than the GTX 295.
    It's hard to judge by pictures but seems like the 5970 won't fit.

    Zardon says the 5970/5870 do fit "just" because the power plugs are off to the side, but they do come close to the fans, I asked him :)

    I was going to get this case, but the RV01 took over instead.
