Exterior Design

Blue and black is clearly the theme here. The case has claw mark graphics in various locations acting to highlight the case. The front of the case of the case is black and wire mesh with a single large power button. Underneath the power button is displayed the MSI logo. Here you can also see the three external 5.25” drive bays, and above those, the bottom of the blue graphics.

Turing the case to the side we can see the Ravager logo, more blue claw graphics, and an open mesh window for two optional 120mm fans. Turning to the back of the case, we get to see for the first time that the blue motif is carried to the inside as well. The blue blades of the rear 120mm fan are clearly visible and the expansion slot plates are blue as well. Also note the bottom mount PSU position and water cooling support. I am happy to see that the bottom mount position for PSU placement is pretty much the standard these days. The other side of the case is solid with more blue claw marks displayed.

The top of the case is simple. There is a recessed IO panel with two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports. Also found here is an activity light, audio jacks, and the reset button. The rest of the top is black mesh, underneath which you can add an additional two 120mm fans.

The bottom of the case has removable filters for both the PSU fan opening and an additional 120mm fan slot.

Now we will crack open the case and take a look at the inside.

I don't like where there is no rubber around the wire management slots.

I think the inside looks good, i also agree that it's kinda odd they didn't put a big window on it. I wonder if they'll sell one like the Cooler Master 690 case did. Just another way to make a little money from the gamers! Although with modding the hobby it is, i think it would be cool to put in your own window and etch the claw marks into it and put some blue LED's on them to light them up!

Good reveiw!

Looks like it was made for a 15 year old. I wish it was cheaper too. But, you can't have everything in life. MSI makes great stuff but they dropped the ball on this case.

It works without rubber lining, but I do agree. I prefer those as it helps keep the airflow exactly where I want it going.
