Silverstone has been involved in the Mini-ITX gaming market for a long time now. Not only have they had a wide variety of case options, but they have also provided short cabled power supplies and more recently they have been the only manufacture with a good SFX power supply for small form factor gaming. On top of all of this, they have been known to really change things up with unique case designs. Their most recent Raven design would have to be considered unique as well. With a look that reminds me of modern day consoles, I suspect that the Raven RVZ01 could be the perfect case for a Steambox build. Let’s see if that is the case.

Small Form Factor builds are building in popularity and as always Silverstone has come up with a unique design that is completely different design than anything else on the market. Check out the new Raven RVZ01 in todays review.

Nice this will probably be what I use to rebuild my HTPC in my living room, when I have some extra cash.
