    SilverStone shows off capable small-form-factor chassis

    RVZ02 and SG13 provide value and usability.
    Watch the show..

    The RVZ02 will need a bit of aesthetic improvement but great to see they've paid some attention to ease of build. The RVZ01 is a good case but was a bit awkward to build with. Looks like they've done away with the slim case fans but that shouldn't really be a problem.

    Re: SilverStone shows off capable small-form-factor chassis

    Looks like they realised if the components are next to air they don't need chassis fans; that and the simplified GPU fitting has saved a ton of space.

    Aesthetics wise this being the first prototype I'll forgive it, it's not ugly but I'm not sold either. I am not a fan of the Raven fascias though, I much prefer the ML07 which in the current gen is the same case as the RVZ01 but much better looking IMO. I hope they do something similar here.

    One last thing that would sell it for me would be a short (PSU) cable set for this case. Of course you're going to use a Silverstone power supply in it, they don't have much competition in the SFX department.
    Life is like a hair on a toilet seat. Sooner or later you're bound to get pissed off!

    The chassis looks like a solid design but I agree the aesthetics could do with a bit of work; maybe a bit of modding will handle that.

    I think that combined with the SFX-L PSU, this could be what I'm looking for. I have heard the upgrade to the 120mm fan is a lot quieter than the smaller 80mm fans in normal SFX PSU's.

    Re: SilverStone shows off capable small-form-factor chassis

    I used to own the RVZ01 (gave it to my bro now) and whilst it wasn't hard to work with, the way that they've changed it just makes it even easier to work with now.

    Well done to Silverstone!

    I have the 600w sfx, I don't notice it. Could be that it only gets worked up when the gpu is running hard in which case that would drown it out anyway.

    The 600w one came with short flat cables already, looks like the 500-l does too. Does help a lot.

    Re: SilverStone shows off capable small-form-factor chassis

    Good to see Silverstone return to aluminium in SFF, although FTZ01 still uses steel frame.

    Also hope the new line FTZ gets a follow-up for those wanting a mainly aluminium styled cased with the RVZ02 dimension. For a more stylish DIY Steam Box build.

    I really like the look of the new Sugo.
