Default Silverstone Raven Showcase: Tons of Pics :)

Well, im finally done building it. First impressions:
The box is insanely huge, as is the case, when i walked in the door and saw it my jaw dropped. Its really heavy with all my components in it. other than that Its amazing, i love it, build quality is great. The steel is extremely sturdy, it feels just like the Ft01 Aluminum just a bit thicker and heavier. Overall i love the case. Cable management is so easy. those clips help alot. I didnt experience any problems with a long sata cable issues or anything. Overall its a great case and i love it.
Pics in a cpl minutes uploading to photobucket (EDIT* Photobucket you officially suck, uber slow lol)

Yes,
Case temps are 4C lower than my antec 300
CPU temps are 2C lower than antec 300, (The fan was also running at dbl teh speed in the antec 300, dropped it in the raven because it was too loud)

The raven is also literally silent, tested it with my mom she cant even tell when its on or off standing 2 feet away

my only thing i dont like is the sliding thing at the front gets stuck sometimes
