Default

Here is a couple pics !

The Silverstone Raven RV-02E is an "inverted" case, mobo is installed in a 90° angle, taking all the fresh cold air from the bottom (fed by 3x 180mm fans) directly to the CPU heatsink / vid card / hard drive cage.

The SSD is hidden behind the little heat sink plate besides the graphic card.



Upright position



With side panel and top cover on (the monitor / power / usb cables are routed to the top because of the motherboard "inversion", instead of coming out of the back - which is why there is a cover on the top, to protect the cabes while maintaining great airflow)



Heatsink is about 2mm away from the plexi window. Happy with the beast ! Had a couple of "scares" with my 3080, on my older setup, kept hearing 3 beeps before hearing the BIOS beep... turns out the card tells you you're in legacy mode and not full UEFI.

Also, the fans stop if the care is under 60°, made me panic when I noticed it ! All is good, super silent when it's on normal load

Gotta update the specs now

"Yes, but God has the right to get away with anything. Shoot animals, make ugly women, allow the existence of religious nuts, and watch liederhosen-wearing midget poodle-licking pornography. God's a sick bastard." - OzzieBloke

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes. ;-)

God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.
