    There are two new cases at the Silverstone booth. The first beeing the Raven, which is their new high end enclosure. It is quite large an features clean cut, but very modern design. The interesting aspect is the mainboard placement. It fits into the case at a 90 degree angle, with the usual rear connections facing upward. the cables are then routed out the back of the chassis. The second case is from the Precision series and also features a clean look. This unit is intended for the mainsteam user. Lastly the one thing of interest is the cooling used in their demo systems. It is the Noise Limit Silentflux passive cooler. As you can see in the image, it is cooling an i7 with the help of the surrounding fans.

    The raven is awesome looking, it is what caught my attention and made me walk over to the silverstone booth. I like that cooler too, as long as there is decent airflow.

    EDIT: BTW your link is wrong, for silverstone :)

    this time last year i saw a sweet case now know as the FT01 at ces. i now own one.

    while i cant say the same about these cases here, because the FT01 is perfect for what i wanted, i can tell that silverstone still has some great designs brewing for 09 and someone will be very happy with these new cases.

    i applaud silverstone and lian li for their constant ability to impress me with great looking and well designed cases.

    My Cosmos case was around the same price when I bought it. But, I got it at Compusa and spent $199 for it. I feel going over that price is to much.. lol..

    Silverstone products are great but their website is spazzy and awful. XD

    I love the Raven. I don't want to deal with a window, though. PS01 is probably my favorite. :p

    Gotta love silverstone, they are damn good at making cases. I still think think Thermaltake is better but that is a minor gripe. might go the HTPC route with them one day.
