    That beige colour looks manky, but who knows, could like nice with Noctuas inside.

    Hmmm, as the PSU seems to intake from the bottom as well, the entire exhaust seems to consist of the one fan in the top, right?
    Do the cables come out of the top of the case, or are they routed towards the bottom?

    I've recently built systems with the FT02 and RV02 and can say that if these new models are the same build quality and can assist in fantastic cable management and airflow then they will be big winners. I'm liking the white RV02!

    The most FUGLY case I have seen in a long time. I'll come right out and say it: The Silverstone is f*cking UGLY! As are most silverstone designs. It looks like a f*cking dustbin. I think what we have here is a case of fanboy-ism hero worship. Or maybe someone just slipped him a back-hander to say it was jaw-droppingly beautiful?

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! I am no fan of the raven, but love the fortresses.
    Just a shame to see they still don't support EATX motherboards (at least there's no mention of this...)

    Champagne looks awesome!

    Looks like an easy mod to fit an Iron Man theme, to be honest, what with the layered panels.

    Next time I have a big budget for a case I'm going with Silverstone. I like the vertical orientation design, while simple, makes perfect sense according to the laws of physics. As long as the intake fans are powerful enough it should be a well-ventilated case. Build quality is exceptional from what I've seen in reviews. If they were cheaper I'm sure it would be a more popular brand among enthusiasts.

    can't wait for RV03, looks amazing, hopefully it'd have price of RV02, but hard drive cooling + ease of use of performance of FT02.

    Nothing looks nice with Noctuas inside! Horrible ugly fans.

    I like the look of the black with 2 champagne stripes case.

    Uh, no. It is, and I want one. It's modest, subtle without being a-n-other black case and has fantastic aluminium panelling. Personal opinion. What do you like then? ;)

    The RV03 looks like a reject from a Gundam-esque show..

    Not sure I could live with that.

    The FT03 is certainly intriguing and innovative, but I would never buy one with my own money. It just looks silly.

    Colours quite nice, bit too plain for my liking, its just a shiny champagne coloured box.

    Maybe it looks great in person but from the images it looks rather bland.

    That champagne colour is definitely non-starter with me. Looks really out of place. Perhaps on a white version it might look better.

    What I REALLY would like Silverstone to do, though, is create a version of the RV02/FT02 for a normal-sized ATX mobo, yet which is only about 50cm in depth. I know it can be done, since they did a version of the RV1 for MainGear (the Shift) and it's a really stunning case.

    I was reading that the RV02 helps your GPU keep cooler than nornal cases because of the way the components are installed which makes the GPU quieter. If this true I might be in the market for an RV02 and sell my 800D.

    Nice case but not a fan of the champagne. hope they release with more options. Black, white, silver, red, blue, maybe even green or yellow!
