SilverStone Raven RV05 Revealed – Looking Good or Not?

A few days ago, the SilverStone Raven RV05, the 5th generation Raven case, has been showcased to the Japanese press. Like its predecessors, it also features a rear-top or 90 degree motherboard tray where the rear input/output ports are on the top portion of the case. This position is said to be optimal for heat dissipation since heat naturally goes up. Cool air comes from the bottom and the sides, while hot air is released above.

SilverStone Raven RV05 specs, price, release date

The SilverStone Raven RV05 looks smaller than the Raven RV01. I don’t think it’s a full tower case, but it supports ATX, micro-ATX and SSI-CEB motherboards, and SilverStone assures that boards which are wider than ATX (like Asus Maximus V Extreme) are supported.

The Raven RV05 has seven expansion slots, two 3.5-inch drive bays, two 2.5-inch drive bays, and a slim line optical drive bay. However, SilverStone removed the 5.25-inch drive cage completely, making it possible for larger motherboards to fit in.

As you can see from the pictures, the SilverStone Raven RV05 has adequate cooling features. It has large 180mm fans located at the bottom of the case (which by the way is included). There’s also one 120mm top exhaust and a 120mm rear exhaust. The bottom fans are covered with a removable dust filter and you can install a 280x140mm radiator on the bottom as well. Meanwhile, on the front panel, we see USB 3.0 ports and front panel audio jacks.

This SilverStone Raven RV05 you see is still a prototype, meaning the final product may look different from this one. Perhaps, SilverStone wants to see the reaction of the people, specially the PC Enthusiast and System Builder’s community before they release the final product. The Raven RV05 price and release date is also unknown as well. But this might be revealed in the following months to come after SilverStone has already finalized the product.

So what do you think of the upcoming Raven RV05? Does it look good or cool? Or it’s one of those ugly cases that are not included in your options list when you buy a new case?
