Introduction


rv04b-34

Silverstone are pioneers when it comes to high performance chassis products, and their legendary Raven series is right at the front of the pack. This isn’t the first Raven product we’ve reviewed and if it’s anything near as good as the (now a few years old) Raven RV01 that I reviewed last year, then we’re in for a real treat today. Of course we’ve also reviewed an even newer Raven series product more recently; the Mini-ITX compatible RVz01, which you can read here.

As with most high-end enthusiast grade products, you can expect a wave of premium features, sublime engineering and class leading design. Of course these kind of features don’t come cheap and the Raven RV04 will set you back around $159.99/£120, putting it online with many other premium products from the likes of Cooler Master, Fractal Design, NZXT, Corsair and more. At this price range I’ll be looking for nothing short of exceptional quality, but given that previous models blew us away, there is little doubt that this will be anything but great.

Full tower chassis are becoming more and more popular as PC users demand more and more powerful components, including multiple graphics cards, larger cooling components, RAID storage and the like. The Raven RV04 looks set to tick all of the boxes and as you can see from the specifications below, it’s very well equipped, so let’s get right to it and take a closer look at what Silverstone’s latest chassis has to offer.

The box comes with a nice photo of the front side of the chassis as well as a cool Raven graphic and run down of all the major features such as the removable motherboard tray, cable routing and included cooling fans.

Around the back you’ll find a clear list of all the major features, as well as an internal image of the chassis.

In the box you’ll find a bunch of fitting components such as motherboard tray extenders, GPU support bar, some cable ties, all the screws you’ll need and an easy to follow user guide.

    I know it’s subjective but to be honest I’m not struck on Silverstone’s cases and avoid them when I can.
