Sharkoon Announces REV300 ATX Case With Seven Pre-Installed PWM Fans

Sharkoon Technologies is an international supplier of high-performance, quality PC components and peripherals. With the REV300, Sharkoon now presents a PC case of a different kind. Besides seven pre-installed PWM RGB fans for optimal cooling, the case also comes with addressable fan LEDs for customized lighting. In addition, since the tempered glass side panel is placed on the right-hand side of the case, the REV300 offers the possibility for a better presentation of the illuminated hardware components.

With seven pre-installed, addressable PWM fans, the REV300 is equipped with maximum cooling capacity as standard: There are three 140-millimeter fans behind the front panel and three 120-millimeter models at the rear of the case, as well as one more with 120 millimeters under the top panel. These RGB fans are supported by the front panel's mesh grille which facilitates the airflow. Water cooling can also be built into the REV300: A radiator of up to 360 millimeters can be installed at the rear, and there is even space for a radiator of up to 420 millimeters at the front, provided that it does not exceed 3.2 centimeters in height. Furthermore, it should not be longer than 46.5 centimeters and no wider than 14.1 centimeters.
Especially Innovative
The PC cases of the REV series are known for the unconventional positioning of components such as the graphics card, which can thus be better presented. The REV300 is no exception: Thanks to the mainboard which can be installed at a 90-degree rotation, all the components can be advantageously displayed through the glass panel on the right-hand side of the case. The tempered glass panel itself is attached with a magnetic closure to the front the case and with hinges to the back, making it quick and easy to open and close. In addition to the novel installation of components, the user is also offered a USB-C port in addition to the four usual USB ports on the I/O panel.

A True Colossus
The design and the size of the case should result in an impressive presentation of the case itself as well as the components which are installed inside. Slightly protruding corners form a frame for the mesh-covered front panel, and the effect is a dynamic, elegant presentation of the three RGB fans. Its simplicity also emphasizes the impressive illumination of the fans, while the installed RGB components are showcased from behind the glass panel.
Immense Amount for Room for Hardware
With its enormous dimensions, the REV300 is particularly suitable for those who value large amounts of space for high-quality components. Graphics cards up to 34.5 centimeters in length can be installed in the case without any problems, as can CPU coolers up to 17.7 centimeters.

Possibilities without Limits
Power supplies with a maximum length of 27 centimeters can also be easily installed inside the case. In addition, the Angled Graphics Card Kit should also not go unmentioned. This is a mounting which has been specially designed for the REV300 and allows graphics cards to be showcased to their full advantage.

Price and availability.
The ATX case is now available at the manufacturer's suggested price of 144.90 euros. The Angled Graphics Card Kit is available at the price of 34.99 euros.

Huh; good job Sharkoon. Probably overkill for anyone without multiple GPUs, and I can’t imagine it’s cooling is that efficient, but I like it.

We are in a strange position where the fans that it comes with are probably worth more than the actual case itself.

Sooooo... in summary:

A) Providing 7 fans with a $145 case sure is... impressive ? revolutionary ??
B) Putting the hinged door on the right side is definitely... innovative ? an out of this world idea ??
C) Having enough room for large components is... so friggin cool I just gotta get me, like 5, like, yesterday dude?
D) Having RGB fans is extremely... a 1-in-a-million deal ? the best things since sliced bread ??
E) Being able to rotate your mobo is somehow... a feat of modern, class leading engineering/design ? totally RAD man ??

But hey, at least it has USB-C on the front I/O panel, so there's that.....

I have a buddy who would absolutely love this. I wish Sharkoon products were easier to get here in the states they look pretty nice and the prices don't seem bad either.

Have to disagree with you on this, I think this one is quite unique in its layout. I know some of the old Silverstone Raven iterations have had 90 degree rotated mobo layout done successfully in the distant past, but one that opens on the right hand side AND unaccompanied by those intake penetrator fans at the bottom? Also, I cannot remember the last time I saw 7 fans in a case included as default, certainly never as many as 3 at the back, the ridiculous 12-fan Abkoncore case notwithstanding.

But I'm not so sure about the airflow here though. Given that the latter Silverstone Ravens have already shown the world the optimal fan configuration for a rotated mobo layout, the PSU shroud here looks like a bad idea, even if you could mount fans on top of it (the case even has a full-length filter at the bottom?). Should have used a left-right dual-chamber a la Lian Li's PC-011, IMHO, then the case could still have aesthetically-pleasing RGB fans at the back, in addition to Raven-esque airflow.

Have both sides as intake and WHOOSH all the hot air goes out the top

although i'd wanna see how it looks with a PC in it, and how the cable spaghet is handled at the top

Not sure if I follow correctly: this idea about turning whole mainboard by 90 degrees clockwise results in extension cards like GPU hanging "from the roof" with their fans facing front side of the case, right? I'm guessing that the main reason for this is to allow direct hit of the cool air from outside the case.

Perhaps I'm wrong but I can see two potential problems here:
1) blower type GPUs - their exhaust goes through the card's back grill so in this case the hot air will have to pass through the upper chamber under the filter. That may be much less effective then the common solution where grill exhaust the air directly outside the case. In FE of Nvidia cards it may also lead to heating up the CPU (because their exhaust is on the backside so the hot air from GPU will hit directly in CPU cooler).
2) standard "tower" CPU cooling - the GPU in such position creates an obstacle that the air must pass on it's way to the CPU. It should not be a problem for those with AIO cooling (because they will put the radiator on the back side - even a push-pull sandwitch seems possible) but standard coolers will get much weaker airflow. In most of the common cases where GPU is mounted horizontally the flow of air is not disturbed, at most it splits in two flowing around GPU and reaches CPU cooler without much distrortion. But here? With large GPU blocks it may create a problem (turbulence instead of a stream).

Don't get me wrong - I find this case interesting. It surely is innovative. I'm just wondering it's effective too. Well, I guess tests will show (Go get her, Steve! LOL) ;)

I think the airflow is wonky, too (should've been intake on both sides for XTREEM pressure), but regarding 1), blowers should be fine, as demonstrated with the FT02/RV02, although positive pressure was the secret sauce there, and 2) I feel like the triple exhaust will pull away the heat from the CPU heatsink as effectively as a single intake and single exhaust in traditional chassis.

That's just me speculating about this wonky and, speculatively, negative-pressure design, though. Curious to see reviews as well!

The trailer video was made using angled GPU kit and the LC GPU model so the airflow wasn't disturbed (as we can judge by the smoke trail). But that's a comercial. I'm thinking about standard aircooled GPU (which may be massive) and standard mounting (without the kit). I hope such case will also be tested (as the most common I guess).

And regarding the upper chamber of the case - take a look:


This is where the blower type GPUs exhausts will be, just next to the exhaust of the upper fan. All of that capped by the thick-looking dust filter. Well, I may be wrong but something tells me, there will be a hell lot of hot air trapped here.

I didn’t watch the video and just had assumed a traditional orientation :oops: My thinking was that the intake cools the GPU and the exhaust manages the CPU in the case of a blower GPU and that the airflow is ultimately horizontal regardless. I don’t know if the latter would be effective — either it’s a sort of two-chamber design (positive pressure for the GPU, negative for CPU) or the hot air of an axial GPU is pulled to the exhaust before convention gets a chance to play any significant role.

Then again, it’s probably ultimately negative pressure, so :confused:

That’s why I mentioned the FT02 — owning one I can say it’s true that some air gets caught up there, but it’s not much — I only shaved a couple of degrees off when I ran a GTX 470 SLI reference setup. Then, the mesh is more open with the FT02, and the bottom-up airflow nurtures convection/pushes the hot-air away... But maybe those crazy 3000rpm fans will overcome the impedance? :p No idea.

Weird, if interesting, case :shrug:
