SilverStone Introduces RAVEN RV03B-W Chassis

The RAVEN team's continued push to redefine and perfect the enthusiast tower chassis has resulted in yet another benchmark in the RAVEN RV03. With world-class cooling performance from the previous RAVEN chassis models retained by the included 180mm Air Penetrator fans, a rethinking of the interior layout enabled dramatic reduction in overall depth of the chassis compared to RAVEN RV02 while still matching RAVEN RV01's ability to accommodate Extended ATX motherboard and graphics cards longer than 13 inches.

Cable management was also improved with a new 5cm thick hard drive compartment to allow nearly all cables to be connected behind the motherboard tray with ease. An unconventional power supply compartment located in the lower front part of the chassis further add to facilitate cable routing so anyone can assemble a pristine looking system with maximum airflow efficiency.
Complementing the finely tuned and engineered interior, the RV03 has champagne colored trimmings adorning an exterior with aggressive lines yet reserved profile. The stand out styling also fully utilizes the chassis's powerful cooling ability to full effect by a set of smartly designed, dual-purpose front bezels that helps to keep the RV03 looking sharp and uniform whether the user is setting up for maximum air cooling or for a silencing build.

As a trend-setter and a computer chassis engineering showcase, the RAVEN RV03 has few equals. However, its advanced features are equally accessible that anyone from experienced enthusiasts to novice users will find easy to appreciate and utilize, making RV03 the most appealing RAVEN chassis yet!

The 01 design was larger and held less. In the 02 design u can put the radiator inside. A one fan, a two fan, and if you had to have a three fan for some reason you'd just remove the cage and mount your HDDs in the slots. Also the 01 design about 1/3 a case taller for no reason, due to power box placement. The Raven 01 doesn't have any more "space" than the fortress 01 which was a true ATX case and nothing else. That's the reason i got the first fortress. The Cable management on the 02 was also better Every other use of space in general was better. However the fortress 02 had the same chassis minus all the plastic from Raven 02. lol Which is why i got the Fortress 02. Also the original raven 1 (at the time) wasn't worth the money.. and with 02 chassis (preferably the fortress to the raven) it still isn't.
