SilverStone has recently announced their fifth edition of their unique RAVEN PC chassis for the enthusiasts – the SilverStone RAVEN RV05. Like its predecessors, the RAVEN 05 features a 90 degree rotated design where the rear I/O ports of a motherboard are facing upwards. Silverstone has also removed the front 5.25-inch drive bays making the RV05 more balanced in terms of design and function. Check out the rest of its features, specs, price and availability below.
SilverStone RAVEN RV05 Features
The SilverStone RAVEN RV05 is a result of 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.
