[TPU] SilverStone Miniaturizes Raven to Mini-ITX, Gaming Build Worthy

SilverStone unveiled Raven Mini-ITX, a new compact SFF case fit for mini-ITX gaming PC builds. The case feature signature Raven series styling, and bears design elements from its recently launched sibling, the Raven RV-04. The case is designed to look great in both tower-type (vertical) and rack (horizontal) orientations, with its slot-in slimline optical drive bay, discrete-looking air vents, USB and audio jacks. Internally, the case is nothing short of an engineering marvel, you can install a high-end, dual-slot, full-height graphics card, and a 240 x 120 mm radiator for your liquid cooling loop. It works using a PCI-Express x16 riser that lets you install the graphics card along the plane of the motherboard, with enough room to spare underneath for the radiator. On the storage front, you get a slimline slot-in optical drive bay, and a number of 3.5/2.5-inch drive bays. An SFF PSU bay appears to be located towards the front. The Raven mini-ITX is still under development, SilverStone will formally announce the case later.

Sweet, another case that can create a PC console-box environment.

that's kind of neat looking, but the 240 rad looks more like an addon than anything else

Agreed. I would honestly prefer a thinner case to the possibility of a rad in a case like this. Obviously that's not a universal opinion, but I figure if you really want to water-cool an ITX build, you'dl want something bigger anyway. I'd prefer my "console PC" case thinner, as it's unlikely I'll be overclocking it anyway.

wow, the mini-itx market exploded like crazy.

Now I just want this case in a matx version with standard power supply support and retain it's ability to hold a rad, been looking at almost every desktop case like this none of them have this ability that i have found.

though 2 120mm fan blowing on something like an mk-26 would make for a nice quiet gpu

Thats pretty nice looking, although with the fullsize GFX card and radiator option in there it is not particularly small probably.
