So after a busy week and lots of reading I'm finally between these two. They sit quite good on my desk and window is in the right side as I like. I will do some WC but mid-entry level, not looking for something extreme.

I like the white better but all my peripherals and other stuff are 90% black/10% silver. People at home say go for the black as my enthusiasm for white will be gone after a month and black remains elegant, no matter what.

Black is a bit cheaper (155 vs 165)

Wow never seen the white one, but still, I think with everything else the white will look out of place, and you may end up with the yellowish color eventually of beige boxes.

You want to watercool-skip the Raven, and get a case more suited to it.

you can fit a tone of radiators at the bottom if you take the fans out...

A ton? No. One 360 at most, especially if you have a GPU ANY longer than 9" (i.e. a Radeon 6850). The intake holes on the bottom only line up with 180mm fans, so you end up constricting airflow. And then you end up feeding your computer radiator exhaust to cool RAM/board/etc. The only way to mount more is to mod it and start drilling holes with a Dremel.

The hose ports on the bottom for WCing are completely worthless, as the case does not have tall enough feet to use 90* barb-barb fittings-and clear the ground.

Raven2 is also a great lint vacuum cleaner. I have mine on my desk, and my house cat clogs the intake fans in less than a week.


I regret buying mine, of course that was months before I went into WCing. If I had the dough I'd have dumped my Raven months back and gotten a Mountain Mods or a Case Labs box.

I'm not really into WCing. In fact, I'm still considering it. It's just for the looks, not really worried about temps for the time being.

I've seen a lot of people using a 360 rad and it looks pretty cool. I even know a guy who fitted a 140mm quadruple rad very thight but it worked nicely.

I liked the 800D but it's huge and requires a good WCing system.

I love the looks of the Raven and the 90º rotation.

My first thought was "Oh white.... Sexy..." But then I got to thinking about it. If you touch you computer a lot it will show dirt and anything else that isn't a finger print. On the other side. Black will do the opposite if its got a glossy finish. If I was buying the case I would go black cause I'm a cheap @#$ and don't want to $150+ on a case. But if you want to show off you gear through the window go with the white as the white interior will reflect more light and make it brighter in the case.

I considered it better and I won't build a WCing rig. I'll buy a good cooler and then invest the money in something else.

Do white cases really turn yellow because of the hot?

Since you're after aesthetics, the black will be the easiest to have a unifying theme, with white you'll be all over the place with random colors such as black fans/blue mobo/red system leds.

Although it would look nice if you can get a black evga motherboard with white/black sleeving.

Some of the few things that are keeping me away from buying this already are...

- Large cards. Seeing as the 5790 barely fits worries me about larger cards that could come in the future.
- It looks kinda difficult to built in a system having big hands, at least some cables.
