After introducing the RAVEN Z series in 2014 to great acclaim with the revolutionary RVZ01, the RAVEN team has created another segment defining design in the RVZ02. With a volume of only 12 liters, this case is not only slimmer but is actually easier to assemble compared to the RVZ01 or any other slim case before it. Similar to many SilverStone small form factor cases, there is plenty of room for a powerful graphics card up to 13 inches in length available while tool-less drive cages have been implemented to make assembly quicker than ever. With clever space utilization and engineering, two major heat sources of a PC are separated via the chassis' main chamber so CPU and graphics card can each have their own airflow path. Despite its diminutive size, the RVZ02 is a remarkably versatile case that can be used anywhere from being a compact desktop workstation (in vertical orientation) to a living console or HTPC (in horizontal orientation), making it truly perfect for just about any slim PC build.

I chose this case after looking at a large number of different ITX cases due to its ability to fit a full-size graphics card while also using a standard SFX power supply (instead of the 1U units that a couple cases like the EVGA Hadron use). This is achieved by mounting the video card parallel to the motherboard through the use of a riser unit. You plug your card into the riser, which itself mounts on top of the motherboard and plugs into the motherboard's PCI Express slot.
This layout reduces the case width to about 4.25", great for fitting it into a media center as an HTPC-- the case volume is only 14 liters, compared to the EVGA Hadron (16 liters) or the Bitfenix Prodigy (36 liters). The case can sit horizontally (and looks like an audio receiver when you do) or vertically, with rubber feet included for both orientations.
Valve's reference Steam Box is even smaller (only about 7 liters), but uses the same Silverstone riser card system, so this is a pretty...
Amazing case - ONLY 4 inches wide! Great for my Manhattan apartment. Built a sick system with an Intel 4970K processor, 16gb of ram and an ITX-sized MSI Radeon 270X graphic card. I got FOUR Nocturna 120mm fans in this puppy AND a H60 Corsair radiator for a great water cooled set up using Two of the Nocturna fans in a push/pul set up. Tip - get the 600W power supply as it comes with Silverstone's flat cable set (a $30 value), which you really need to build a system this tught - the cheaper 450W power supply doesn't come with the flat cords, so you'll eat up any savings vs the 600w power supply when you add in the cost of the flat cable set. Here's some pics of my build as I was putting it together. Water cooling is possible!
First of all, I just couldn't wait for this case to release since the first minute I heard about it. It's so sleek, it's nice and cozy and all the parts I got fit really nice inside!
Here's a small limitations checklist for anyone willing to buy this case.
1. You NEED an SFX power supply, there just isn't any room for a bigger PSU. 2. If you really need an Optical drive, this case ONLY supports Slim Slot-load Optical drives (These can be pretty pricey) 3. As stated this ONLY takes Mini-ITX or DTX motherboards, but that's common sense. If you are getting a small case why would you buy a full size motherboard? 4. As for a CPU Cooler, as stated in the manual, "The RVZ01 has an 83mm height limitation for CPU Coolers" So do your research accordingly! 5. For Graphics Cards It can take consumer graphics cards up to 13 Inches 6. Depending on your CPU Cooler you may have to get some Low Profile RAM
