    pop-off expansion slots for a £65 case is quite an odd choice

    The question is why they exist at all. When they're pointing upwards to let the air out and have a cover above them to stop dust getting in, why have silverstone left them attached in the first place?

    I love the inverted motherboard design, I have an FT-02 myself...but this just looks very plasticy & tacky in comparison.

    Re: SilverStone Raven RVX01

    Agreed this is a step too far. The FT05 is smaller version of the FT02, the RV05 is the more budget version of that. This is like the RV05 reduced even further. For RVX01 money I would just wait for a deal on the RV05. Considering its £70ish which fantastic when you consider how expensive the FT05 is and really all you miss is some sound dampening foam and metal faceplate. The FT02 does however offer much better storage options. Silverstone tends to quietly update their internals and contectivity. So a FT02 bought today will come with USB3.0 and some minor tweaks.

    The case you have is probably SPCR's favourite case of all time.

    Silverstone seem to have gone off the rails with their latest cases.

    Not sure who thought it would be a good idea to pop some lego-like blue/red or green feet on the bottom of this latest one because it instantly makes it look cheap and tacky. I think they were aiming for a sleek and streamlined product with some "go-fast stripes for the gamers" but look as if they have failed quite miserably on that brief.

    This looks like it would literally fall over if you left a window open - it really does give that impression.

    I like the stack effect, I'm still rocking my RV03 case. So much storage for HDD/SDD's and Multiple GPUs its endless

    I agree, I also have the FT02. The FT02 is not perfect but Silverstone have never really managed to replicate that level of quality in a case again.

    In this price range id probably roll with a define R4 over this, 12kg of solid steel. Theres the tacky plastic door unfortunately but the rest of the case is fine.
