post #171 of 361
Guys, I have been looking to get a more cusotm, water cooling solution, I am looking at all sorts of external options, have you seen any mods that added a pedastal to the raven 03? I am curios if it is doable while keeping with the airflow of the case. Silverston advised the TD02 may not fit on the bottom of the case there may not be enopugh clearance.

I was looking at this.

Finally completed:

I like this case. Cable management is a bit easier.

Some Cons:
1. Silverstone should have include 1 or 2 pcs longer SATA cables. my Sata for my DVD drive has to pass by on top of motherboard. Would have been easier pass thru backside.

2. I wish the connecting power plug positioned on top (same as all cables)

3. As I have silverstone very owned PSU (Strider gold 1000w evolution) It fits well but damn the cables are so fat. Difficult to manage.

4. One of the Fan (AP181) low setting is not working!! Damn. a great hassle. but its not really a con.

My next project, Cable Sleeving. I know I could just buy but damn in my place cables are way so expensive. I could order from US but shipping phew... cheapeast is 80USD (shipping only and would take 1 month. From Frozen CPU). So its better I gather some info how to, buy some tools... and do sleeving..


Overall, Thanks Silverstone. Its a lovely case and one of the easiest case I worked with.

Nice work! And cable work is tidy too! thumb.gif

Yeah agreed on point #2...the placement for the power cable is a PITA. That's my only gripe with an otherwise very good case.

Thanks. Yeah power cable is really something they should have thought about it. after you assembled everything, damn case is so heavy. Its so hassle fliping the case and inserting the power cable... and after its just lying around...

Maybe if I have time, repositioned that power plug. maybe only...

but indeed case is so good. keeping my crossfire vapor x cool...

edit: have to keep that plastic covering the window.... avoid scratches. lol. Inside of course was removed. dont want plastics stucked at my fans redface.gif

I was looking at this.

Well after searching high and low, I actually went to artist forums and the ones that sculpture human heads were like all in agreement, Balsa Foam is the best material, easy to form and hard as wood when painted. The seams will look fantastic i think once formed to the bottom of the case and top of the pedestal. Maybe paint it the same color as the gray strips to get like a 2 tone effect.

I love the looks of this case and the 90 degree mobo orientation, but I have to tell you... trying to route cables to the SSD tray without bending them unnaturally SUCKS!

I eventually gave up and mounted the SSDs in one of the front bays.

Also, I think I suck at cable management because I had to force the side panel back on after the cable routing. If I have to open the back, the cables explode outwards like black snakes.
