Order :)

I'm aware of the orientation and how the window is on the right side, it works alot better for me because my bed to the right of my desk so with my case window to not be facing the wall I have to block view from my bed so I can't swivel my monitor and watch movies.

I'll probably make post a few pics in the worklog forum when I get it.

Those are great prices, I thought it would be in the $200+ range.

Does $203 after tax with free shipping count as 200+?

Memory Express is fantastic.

While they may not have the widest selection (like NCIX or Newegg), they easily are the most easy to deal with.

If you live in an area without a local Memex store, and you notice something you want, that's no longer available online.
Shoot customer service an email, and you might just be surprised how flexible they can be.
Same goes for price matching competitors, if you find a lower price just fire them an email with the competitor's ad./web link.
Online Policies

Their IPR warranty rocks as well.
If you take a look, they adopted the same 1 year warranty as Futureshop & Best Buy for all products sold new. Service Policies

They started out with one small cramped location in south east Calgary, and slowly expanded their way across the country.

While they are still a young company, they still do have some growing pains to work through, but they're on the right track and doing very well I might add.
Do I like Memex? hell yeah!
But I like to shop at NCIX & Newegg all the same.
Where ever one can get the best bargain.

I just wish Memex had greater selection.
I'm sure that will change in time.

You should not have any reservations at all, go ahead and deal with them.
They're grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!!

I know its no consolation, but when they first got these RV02-EW's... they were selling at $129.99. (I think it was around boxing day, would have to check the slip again.)
I picked one up for my daughter at the time.

The black one was on sale a couple weeks ago for ~$10 off.
I don't know for sure, but I read somewhere that the white one was limited production unit?

It's pretty sleek, and the airflow just like the FT02/RV02 regular is just fantastic.

Only strange thing I find with silverstone's thus far, is that they like to give you strange places I'm not used to mounting SSD's
Great case overall though, would highly recommend.

Alright now I gotta find a few solutions.

Should I go without an optical drive as I rarely if ever use one? Seems like finding one with a matching white faceplate would be difficult to come across.

I have a gigabyte p67a board thats solid black which looks amazing and suits the case, but I have a noctua nh-d14 on it. Should I sell the nh-d14 and get an h70 to suit the theme? Would a H70 satisfy my sub 60c at 4.8ghz 2600k need?

Oh man, Mac... What a nightmare for tinkerers and people who like their computers to be versatile.

I had to get the raven for the same reason, my GF loves ravens (the bird), her email alias name is raven and all that jazz so when I showed her a 'Raven' by silverstone she was like "YOU HAVE TO GET THAT"

Congrats!
Yes, they use UPS.
While the tracking number is generated, it doesn't seem to always show updates until the next business day.

I had been looking around for a white faceplate, but no luck.
Black looks fine, however if you're so inclined, maybe try to get a paint match from a local paint shop, and see if you can custom paint the face plate?
Those are my only solutions :(

I tried building a hackintosh last year, but didn't turn out so well for me :P
(I have an older Mac Pro, and just configured a new unit, don't really need one)
My boy even tried it on his netbook to no avail
