Images of Silverstone's upcoming flagship chassis have been presented.
The chassis has changed in a number of ways, mainly on the interior. The exterior of the case is now more curvy and lacks the chrome highlights. The biggest change, though, is the motherboard orientation. The RV03 had a motherboard that was rotated 90 degrees from the orientation that we're accustomed to, but the RV04 rotates the motherboard 180 degrees and flips it to the other side of the case so that the I/O is still accessible from the back. The motherboard tray also supports up to E-ATX motherboard sizes.
In terms of flexibility, the Raven RV04 will offer room for two optical drives, seven 3.5" drives, as well as four 2.5" drives. Cooling will be executed by two 180 mm front fans as well as a 120 mm rear fan. Graphics cards will be able to be as long as 337 mm, with CPU cooling towers as tall as 165 mm. Front I/O includes a headphone jack, microphone jack, and two USB 3.0 ports.
Two versions will be released, the SST-RV04B, and the SST-RV04B-W, which has an acrylic window in the side panel. At the time of writing, there is no word on pricing or availability.
