Default Silverstone Set to Launch Next Gen Raven Case RV-02

Neat but I'd rather see an evolution of the TJ07, that case has a LOT of promise imo.

I like the look of it, this is pretty close to an ideal case for my tastes. The only potential issue I see is the vertical PSU mounting. Maybe I'm wrong, but as far as I can tell the entire weight of the PSU needs to be supported by the usual 4 tiny screws. It seems like a bit much for big PSUs like the HX1000 and such.

3 x 180mm intake fan 700/1000rpm, 18/27dBA
Promising. Hopefully these are the fans Silverstone told me they're releasing at the end of August. I'd really love to have some 1000rpm 180mm fans in my FT01

Silverstone has me lusting over cases which is a bit weird for a hobby, even for me.

Looks interesting, but not good for watercooling project.

Exactly why I would like them to perform an update to the TJ07, it's pretty good but could use some fine tuning.

What I really like in this case is the vertical alignment for the PCIe stuff, that WOULD be great for watercooling(before anyone says it's bullshit go pick up a GTX295 with a waterblock and tell me that won't try to warp)

I wonder why not making another fan on the back? Would be so much easier with dual rad...
