Computer cases can reveal certain things about their owners. Whether the case is a standard mid-tower with no identifiable features, a cream colored dinosaur sporting a 5.25" floppy drive, or one of the latest enthusiast creations, first impressions start with the enclosure. Enthusiasts obviously take their hardware seriously, so it only makes sense to house thousands of dollars worth of parts in a chassis that makes a statement and offers protection at the same time.
For years, Silverstone has been releasing must have enclosures into the market. The latest contender to step into the ring comes from their new Raven gaming line and it is a head turner. Named the Raven RV01, this case goes where no Silverstone case has ever gone before. Yes, we were just as surprised as anyone to see such an aggressive design but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Read on to find out what other surprises this case has in store.

The RV01 comes with a small but sufficient bundle. As you can see, it includes a owner's guide, radiator clips, assorted screws, and zip ties. Silverstone provides an excellent manual complete with easy to follow directions and diagrams. It even gives the directions in nine other languages. This comes in handy if you ever wanted to know how to say "reinstall the side panels onto the main chassis" in Italian - "reinstallare i pannelli laterali sul chassis." Additionally, the extra standoffs and screws should be enough to cover all your needs with plenty left over. The four black clips are radiator mounting brackets for those who want to water cool this bad boy.
