  1. AFAIK, the RV02 is just one cabinet out of many that Silverstone make. There aren't any other versions available for it. There is one RV02-E available which is the newer version of the RV02 itself.

    so the rv02-E is the newer version.

    so this is the older version..

  3. If you are gonna get the RV02, then its best you get the new one. RV02-E.
  4. sooo the RV02-E is the better one? out of the RV02's. ummm where can you buy it? i cant find anything.
  5. The RV02-E is basically the normal RV02 with AP181 fans.. It seems that the RV02-E has been phased out and the normal RV02 now comes with the AP181 fans.. Check with your dealer on this..

    P.S. - AP181 fans are said to be more efficient compared to the normal fan setup.. They move more air at the same speed and noise levels.. They are used with their premium cases like the Fortress FT02..

    ahh okay thanks.
  7. RV02-E was a Raven with the FT02 innards (7 PCI slots instead of 8, and the different drive cage).

    It's been scraped in NA. Now all the new RV02s ship with the AP181 fans. Be careful though, there is still some old stock left kicking around.

    ahh okay thanks. do you think amazon would have the newer version?
  9. The RV02-E does not exist.

    Instead, Silverstone started putting AP181 fans in the regular RV02 back in September. Just get the RV02

    If you are in the states, then ordering from Newegg is your best bet.

    Then you should just go for the Amazon deal with free shipping. If your unlucky, you can always get AP181 fans later (you only need two). Best price:
