    I have an RV02-BW that I bought on super clearance for $75, and my next build is going in it most likely. However, the RV03 is on sale right now also and I kind of like it a lot. Should I just stick with the RV02? It would cost me more money to sell it and get the rv03, which is smaller.

    I like the long body of the rv02, and I like the overall look and feel. The RV03 looks a bit more "classy" I guess, but I kind of prefer the raw industrial feel of the 02. This is a tough decision for me, but I'm leaning towards keeping my 02....

    I already have most of the parts planned out, and I have an HX1000 ready for it. I just need to decide on the case. My other two cases in use are the 800D and antec 1200. 800D is water cooled custom, and the 1200 is hybrid. I think I'm going to go full air with the raven though, as it's just going to be a gaming machine.

    $75 is half price for the RV02!!! :eek:

    I would just stick with that one. Real nice case. You've got more room and one more bottom fan with that one.

    Personally I'd go with the RV03 as I prefer smaller cases and don't like spending that much. But you got such a great deal, that's not a factor.

    Yeah man they put them on clearance a while back. I actually made a thread about it.

    They were $100 straight up, and a rebate for $24 bucks making it $76.

    I do like the look of the rv03 also. It's real sleak and looks nice, but the 02 does have the fans and extra space. They're both real nice. I guess I should stick with the one I got since it was so damn cheap.

    That's what I decided on. No point in even wasting a dollar on rv03. I love this rv02. Amazing case...
