From Mid-Tower to Full-Tower.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Not really a build but more of a transplant because I've changed my case to a Silverstone Raven RV01

Yes, it's not the best case for air cooling but it's mouth watering beautiful.



My CM690 is tiny compared to the RV-01

At first, the cable management is a bit weird but after some thinking, it's not really bad. There were some stupid mistakes like the hole where the 8 pin power connector goes through, it's a bit small. I do think that the cable management from the CM690 is easier.

Here's the final result




And those cold cathodes are rubbish and where I put it is also rubbish...

About the noise, it's FANTASTIC! It's almost dead silent. The only thing I hear is the clicking noise my hdd makes frequently. And for those of you who thinks this is too plastic, think again. The outer shell is plastic of course but there a quality feel to it. It's sturdy and you can't easily break it. The sliding front door slides smoothly too. I didn't need to grease it.

Sorry for the lack of pictures, I was so excited that I started the build immediately without taking pictures. And sadly I couldn't do some temperature tests because I'm moving out to Asia so it's in it's box.

That's a nice case.

But if your hdd is clicking, it's probably about to fail. I'd back up my data if I were you

Yeh very nice man! I recently saw this case while randomly browsing and it caught my eye.

No doubt that inverted ATX setup will give oyu better temps as well.
