Silverstone has really been one of the premier PC enclosure makers for several years now and they always seem to be find different takes on all types of platforms from ATX, micro ATX, and even mini ATX cases. Their unique approach to case design has inspired them to create the Raven series, which includes the original Raven RV01 case that featured one of the first 90 degree motherboard mount design ever executed in a production case.

Their newest creation is the Raven 2 (RV02), which builds upon the original Raven case, but adds a few new wrinkles to its design and construction. The Raven 2 is smaller, lighter, and Silverstone claims it outperforms the original Raven. There are three custom 180mm fans that line the bottom of the case and push heat through the mesh window at the top of the case. The top of the case also houses one 120mm fan that's located right above the CPU to help increase heat dissipation.

To go along with the custom cooling design, Silverstone also added a custom hard drive suspension cage and radiator mounts to add to the Raven 2's appeal and feature set. One of the other unique features is the depth of the case itself, which comes in at a little over 25 inches.  The Raven 2's depth is about six inches longer than typical mid-tower ATX cases.
