The Latest Silverstone Raven Prototype Looks Incredible!
Peter Donnell / 8 months ago
The Raven series from Silverstone has always been one tuned to the enthusiast. They’re great looking chassis but often tipped more towards practical design choices. More utilitarian than “gamers will love this” design choice. The new Raven Prototype is the perfect example of this ideal.
It features a rotated motherboard mounting, allowing for GPUs to be mounted vertically (exhausting upwards) in the chassis. Instead of the front to back airflow, the entire chassis airflow runs from bottom to top. This makes sense, cool air at the bottom, and warm air rises, giving you passive effect anyway
Passive isn’t the power here though, with two of their monstrous 180mm Air Penetrator fans in the bottom, and a single 120mm in the top. At low RPM you still huge huge airflow and wide airflow coverage for all internal hardware. However, with those fans, you could kick up a small hurricane in there if you really needed to.
There’s loads of room for custom loop in here, although we don’t have final specs with this being a prototype anyway. What I can say, however, is that previous Raven’s have been best configured with airflow vs liquid anyway.
There’s a vast amount of cable routing space, and there are also shrouds hiding the front and back of the chassis. Of course, the I/O of the motherboard is on the top, so that’s hidden under a cover too.
With plentiful dust filters, shrouds, and channels to hide cables, it’s sure to be a very clean looking chassis. Even with the tempered glass side panel showing off your hardware too.
