Raven RV01 by Silverstone
This is probably the biggest PC case I have ever seen. It’s the Raven RV01 by Silverstone. And, it doesn’t come cheap either — just a little over Php11,000 for this one alone. Obviously made for extreme enthusiasts.
You get 7 expansion slots inside and supports motherboards up to extended ATX form factor. There are five 5.25″ external drive bays and 6 3.5″ internal drive bays. For cooling, there’s one 120mm exhaust fan on top and 2 x 180mm intake fan at the bottom. This PC case weighs about 15kg.
The design is pretty nice and reminds me of the Stealth fighter plane (dare I say Starscream of the Transformers?). The dark finish gives an impression it’s made of carbon-fibre and though it’s actually just made of hard plastic. The polygonal shape is edgy with grills on top should allow for better ventilation.
Silverstone is proud on their unique 90 degrees motherboard mounting (the rear part of the motherboard is available on the top of the case which makes for better airflow and better cable handling). The video below demonstrate the stack-effect cooling ability of the Raven RV01 case with a fanless system build:
It’s one kick-ass PC case if you asked me. You get more room inside, an innovative airflow-design and awesome design. And having bought several other high-end PC cases before (mostly Li-an and Gigabyte) I’d say the Raven is on top of the heap. The suggested retail price is also a premium. One has to shell out Php11,00 for this rig.
