Was the wire management easy to do in the Raven? I'm seriously considering this case...DAMN YOU!! LOL

I love the idea of the door going down and out of the way, and the fact the wires all plug into the top. Mine are a nightmare to get at.

Anyone want to buy a 2 week old Cosmos S? LOL

Thanks for the review of your case. I've been eyeing up the Raven aswell, but I think I've decided on the Cosmos S case I like the traditional mounting on the motherboard. But you never know if I find a good deal on the Raven I might pick it up.

nice Silverstone setup man.... I like the way the mainboard sits upwords.. and theres 2 fans on the bottom blowing air up to the video cards.. drive positioning in this case is wierd.

Nice setup

I went from the Cosmos S to this case. Glad I did. Wire management is easier, and it run quite a bit cooler too! And the looks are to die for!!

I'm modding mine this week...stay tuned!

There is an easy fix for the door, just spray a small bit of silicon or WD-40 into the channels of the track for the door. It will fix the door sticking, did mine 3 months ago and it hasnt stuck again with only one application
