Silverstone Cases Promise Improved Air-flow with Fewer Fans

The Raven 4 is a plastic case fitted with a "Hi-Flow air filter" that Silverstone maximizes airflow, offering improvements of up to 30 compared to previous solutions, and improved dust buster capabilities. Silverstone has removed the rear grill to improve air flow and these two differences help Silverstone reach the same cooling performance of the previous model with one fewer fan. The FT04 is the same case but it's fashioned out of aluminum as opposed to plastic. 

Silverstone also had on hand a new mini-PC called the SG-09 with a 23 liter capacity as well as a micro-ATX motherboard, a standard PSU, space for two HDDs and four SSDs, two fans, standard length VGA cards, and two USB 3.0 ports on the front.

The Raven 4 will be available in Q4 priced at €130, while the aluminum FT04 will cost €180/€200 (also available in Q4).

    "Silverstone also had on hand a new mini-PC called the SG-09 with a 23 liter capacity'

    That must be a typo. Anyone think they can fit 23 1 liter bottles in their case?

    "Silverstone has removed the rear grill to improve air flow"

    About time one of the case manufacturers did that. I've been removing fan guards, perforated mesh, and grills from the rear panel for years. Improves hot air exhaust, especially if an exhaust fan on the rear panel is aligned with cpu heatsink fans.

    Might not be such a good idea if you have curious cats and little children.
