Product information: Raven 5 Midi Tower Windowed Case - Black (SST-RV05B-W)

The RAVEN RV05, the fifth edition in the exciting RAVEN enthusiasts chassis series continues the tradition of breaking and evolving the standards of desktop PC design.

With a bold move that sees the removal of all 5.25” drive bays, the RAVEN team engineers again saw the opportunity to re-utilize the 90 degree rotated design. Previous RAVEN models with 90 degree layout often had to compromise on space efficiency due to fixed length of the motherboard in rotated orientation. The elimination of 5.25” bays solves this issue naturally and enables RV05 to be even more balanced in terms of design than if the same were done to a traditionally-layout case.

With most of the wasted space eliminated from RV05, engineers were thus able to better optimize the case for the most important performance-affecting components such as
CPU and GPUs. The result is an expertly-engineered ATX chassis that is just as capable in terms of compute power and heat dissipation as the first RAVEN chassis, the RV01,
but in half the size. Equipped with latest revision Air Penetrator fans that include three speed switches and modern touches such as externally removable filters and tool-less
panels, the RV05 has everything that PC enthusiasts could wish for in a compact, high performance computer case that is not only cool and quiet, but also easy to build and maintain.
For those not wanting to constantly step up in case size to obtain top-level performance, the RAVEN RV05 is the perfect solution and it may also represent a glimpse into the future of
mainstream enthusiasts PC design.

Great case with few faults

I really love the design of this, the airflow is really good, and the 180mm fans that come pre-installed aren't very loud.
The case is a very reasonable size, and should fit on most desks without taking up too much room.

Building into it isn't too hard, although you will need to route large cables like the 24pin carefully, even if your cable management isn't great with help from another person you should be able to get the rear panel back on fine (with no bulge either), certain cables like the CPU power should be routed before putting the MoBo in.
Also if yo want to use the 3.5" drive bays you will want a PSU up to ~175mm in length (I have this problem, using a superflower leadex gold 650W, but was going all SSD so it doesn't affect me)

I love the aesthetics of the case, the finnish is really good and pretty durable, and the plastic that forms the outside is well constructed and does not feel/look tacky, The window is a bit low although it does mean that any crossfire/sli headers are hidden, or a 120mm rad if you have an AIO. With window is also held in by wide screws so it would be very easy to replace it with glass, or smoke it. All the front panel headers and power reset etc. are all black or sleeved right up to the end of the connector with no gap.

The dust filters on the intakes are amazing (would expect nothing less from silverstone), really fine but airflow is still really good through them, also the removal of the entire bottom filter from the front of the case is really nice and easy.

I love this case and the only case I would take instead of it is the FT05 which is a similar design but aluminium instead (or something from caselabs/parvum).


Cooling yet frustrating

Fantastic case once it is all in there. You will need to be very skilled at cable management to get the rear panel closed and keep it looking neat! Also be prepared for the fact that the HDD cage may block the PSU cables and have to be removed....I have to buy a SSD and side mount it as the HDD cage will not fit with my cables!
