Feature rich and very innovative is the best way to describe the SilverStone Raven RV02 Case. This case is up there with the best cases on the market. It has lots of drive bays, plenty of room to work, cable management holes, 4 fans, fits a 3x120mm radiator and much more.

If we compare it to HAF X, what would be your choice for a case?

HAF x or RV02?

This case shouldn't get a 100% Kickass rating simply for the orientation of the HDD cage, something that its sister case (Fortress FT02) remedies.

you but you can remove th hdd in the front of the case like at every other case.nobody needs more than 3 Hdd for gaming and the cable managment is exactly so good like the others cases on the market only the size and weight would be a problem.

Strongly agree!!
This case was in my top contenders for purchasing until i found out that the case only holds 3 HDD's in its HDD bays.
For a massive case, 3 bays??!! Any full tower case is atleast supposed to hold 6 HDD's.
Everything else in this case is just awesome!!

I disagree. If anything, the plastic top and front should get it knocked down to Kickass but that's easily arguable.

yeah but 3 hdd cagaes are enough for a gaming pc and plastic and?why its not bad cause it looks like steel.a little bit but the tower suporrts every form factor and also ssi ceb and its cooling like a ice machine

I currently own this case and love it. However is it possible to mount wheels on the bottom of the case to make it easier to move around the house?

Removing the front of the case is easy...read the manual!!

Do you know if it is compatible with the Silverstone CFP52B ?

Where does the water cooler go, and will it be a problem for airflow?

Looks great, but how about watercooling? Is there space enough for a big 360 radiator? On the bottom beneath the case or at the back of the case? I have a XSPC RX360 Radiator, any chance this will fit? Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

I think a better question is "how do you remove the 5.25" drive bay?" I may not think that the entire bezel can be removed.

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

Yes, front bezel can be removed but have to remove a few screws. You can just push out the 5.25" drive bay panels and covers out from the inside though.

Anonymous, Are you referring to the front panel/bezel?

Dunno if you are referring to the top filters, but there is no door on this case...

This is a sweet case... I don't know if I am 100% sold on the verticle cable connections or the blue LEDs in the front, but definitly a sweet case. Hey Rod, is that front door removable?
