SilverStone RAVEN RV05 PC Case Coming In July

The RAVEN RV05, the fifth edition in the exciting RAVEN enthusiasts chassis series continues the tradition of breaking and evolving the standards of desktop PC design. With a bold move that sees the removal of all 5.25" drive bays, the RAVEN team engineers again saw the opportunity to re-utilize the 90 degree rotated design. Previous RAVEN models with 90 degree layout often had to compromise on space efficiency due to fixed length of the motherboard in rotated orientation.

The elimination of 5.25" bays solves this issue naturally and enables RV05 to be even more balanced in terms of design than if the same were done to a traditionally-layout case. With most of the wasted space eliminated from RV05, engineers were thus able to better optimize the case for the most important performance-affecting components such as CPU and GPUs.

The result is an expertly-engineered ATX chassis that is just as capable in terms of compute power and heat dissipation as the first RAVEN chassis, the RV01, but in half the size. Equipped with latest revision Air Penetrator fans that include three speed switches and modern touches such as externally removable filters and tool-less panels, the RV05 has everything that PC enthusiasts could wish for in a compact, high performance computer case that is not only cool and quiet, but also easy to build and maintain.

For those not wanting to constantly step up in case size to obtain top-level performance, the RAVEN RV05 is the perfect solution and it may also represent a glimpse into the future of mainstream enthusiasts PC design.

Special Features:
  • Signature RAVEN styling touches Revolutionary 90 degree motherboard mounting from RAVEN RV01
  • Breakthrough 5.25 inch bay-free design for unprecedented power to size ratio
  • Two Air Penetrator fans included for great performance and quietness
  • Positive air pressure design for excellent cooling/quietness and dust-prevention
  • Quick-release latch for fast side panel removal
  • Front access to main filter for easy maintenance
  • Support for various liquid cooling radiator sizes

The recommended End User price (excl. VAT): $118.23 / 88.90 Euro
The RV05B-W will be available on July 3.

Raveeeennn- uhuuuu. Not bad, but I'd be all over a mini-ITX version of FT02B to be honest. I would be screaming, kabooom baby all over the place :D :D

So many marketing buzzwords, too little cynicism to capitalize on PR writers inability to REVOLUTIONISE how they outline key features.

I agree, nothing so far has beaten the old 02 designs, besides the ITX case as an addition. Weird thing is, most people I've heard from prefer the 02 designs, and yet Silverstone don't seem to want to capitalise on this fact.

.....no where near as good as 1 or 2 ......but far better than the last few..... That origin Millennium case looks more Raven -ish than this..... Every company should have this 1 guy whose sole purpose is to not allow a brand to be pooped on by poor design, build quality or aesthetics..... He should have the power to say NOPE...... name it something else.......this is not quite it yet.

Just take the FT-02, RV-02, FT-03 into the lab and try to improve them a little. Not radically change the design.

They have already tried the 90 degree and downward so yeah maybe next time they just might tilt it backwards.

Is it just me, or does the design of the Ravens become worse and worse with every new iteration?

I mean, sure, there are some improvements to the interior, but the exterior... oh gods.

I am very pleased with the design and dissatisfied with the amount of plastic. Metallic elements would have put the product to the top. Here we have cheap plastic and aluminum could look very nice !:( Too bad

I just want them to make a slightly cheaper successor to the TJ11 in the RAVEN series, since the supply of that is drying up and I don't want to spend 500+ on a case >.>

Glad to see they kept the inverted motherboard like the RV01; that's one of the best features in our opinion; now the RV05 has a slightly smaller footprint too...
