SilverStone Raven RVX01 Mid-tower Chassis Detailed

Ahead of its November 2015 global launch, we got an exclusive sneak peak of SilverStone's upcoming Raven-branded ATX mid-tower chassis, the Raven RVX01. Made of ABS and steel, the case will offer the best design and practicality elements of the Raven series, at an affordable price, which will be game for even premium multi-GPU builds with heavy power supplies. It will come in two variants - with and without a side-panel window.

To begin with, the case features a top-oriented motherboard tray, in which the motherboard's I/O face the top, while the tray is accessible from the right panel. There's room for CPU coolers as tall as 162 mm, and graphics cards that are as long as 349 mm, and as tall as 150 mm (cards like the ASUS R9 Fury or GTX 980 Ti STRIX should be an easy fit). Also offered is an ATX PSU bay, with room for PSUs as long as 225 mm (big 1500W-class PSUs should fit).
The RVX01 lacks any exposed drive bays, but there are four internal drive bays that can be used for 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives. Cooling options include three 120 mm bottom intakes (can hold on to a 360 mm long radiator), one 120 mm front intake, and a 120 mm top exhaust. Three SilverStone Air-Penetrator 120 mm spinners come included and factory-fitted to the bottom intakes. The bottom intake features a removable dust filter. Front panel connectivity includes USB 3.0 (standard header) and HDA jacks. The RVX01 is expected to be priced around $80.

Seems nice. Will wait for the more "subtle" Fortress/Milo version of this one.

Is the bulge on top designed to silence top fans by exhausting the air to the rear? That's quite clever design, something I miss with my Carbide case. If I want top fans, I have to uncover them all which means noisier system.

It's actually designed to hide the I/O and cable mess at the top of the case. Most of the fan noise is already muffled since the three main intake fans are on the bottom with only a single 120mm up top.

It's a lovely mini-ITX case, but not quite my tempo....I really love the simplicity of a U-frame. A single piece of metal that takes care of 2 sides and the bottom stand. The whole thing plays very "complete" in reality. I'd say the most beautiful serial case IMO.
