I have my fans always on high, and the noise level is still pretty low.

Routing all your cables from behind the motherboard can be done in a very neat and efficient way thanks to all the openings around it.

Great cooling, 3 fans on bottom produce plenty of airflow to keep everything in the case cool.

This is a big case but easy to put together. Almost any size power supply will fit in it. Plenty of room left after I install my 3 video cards. Each fan along with the intake for power supply has a filter. This is a great case that will keep your components cool but will take up a lot of space.

The only bad thing about this case for me is it can only hold 3 hard drives, but it does come with tray for an SSD hard drive.

First, I have to mention that the case comes with the improved AP181 air penetrator fans, which greatly improve the cooling performance of the case. Here is a link to the fans that are included and already mounted and cable-routed for you : SilverStone Air Penetrator Air Channeling Case Fan 180*180*32mm, 700/1200rpm AP181 (Black)
It is also updated, with an extra reinforcing bracket at the top (strengthening the case) and an improved power/reset button. (better than the previous design)

I love the case. Excellent price and value for the features provided.
Easy to build in, looks great (black, black interior, huge fans, sleek lines...), performance is top-notch (one of the best air-cooled cases around.)
Didn't have any problems with cable management, it looks clean and uncluttered, while not difficult to achieve.

Noise levels are really low, mine has the three fans at Low, the 12cm fan at the top is a bit noisier, I might replace it.
Even at low, the AP181 fans achieve great airflow, keeping everything cool in near-silence. (low pitched airflow noise, not intrusive)
The PSU holds by the screws at the top AND by a small included bracket that you can adjust so it supports it from underneath. Useful.
The air filters are good, even though mine sits on the desk some dust is caught in.
I haven't plugged the power LEDs so I can't really tell how bright they are. It is a Molex, doesn't use the motherboard headers : no blinking while in standby...
Hdd led is a red led in the front of the top "V", it is not intrusive and not too bright.
The window placement is good, it is wide so you can see everything inside.

This is truly a fantastic case. I honestly believe this is the best case out there for air cooling your system. This chassis comes with three 180mm intake fans and one 120mm exhaust fan. The intake fans are speed adjustable and the case runs very quietly even with it's 3 intake fans set at their 1,000 RPM high speed. I specially like the way this case looks sitting on my desk, the overall quality of it's design, finish and attention to detail. Except for when installing a pci card, it is really easy and fun to work with. Routing all your cables from behind the motherboard can be done in a very neat and efficient way thanks to all the openings around it.

Now, for the not so great things:

I sometimes have a hard time seeing the HDD activity indicator red light, and I believe this is because it is right in the middle of the plastic that illuminates blue when you power up the computer. If you don't provide power to the blue light then this shouldn't be a problem anymore. I personally think the blue light looks cool and prefer to keep it on. One thing I noticed is that the acummulation of dust inside the chassis might be higher than on typical ones. Though the intake fans and the back cover come equipped with filters, this systems 90 degreet rotation of the motherboard means the the whole top is basically open. When turned on this shouldn't be a problem for obvious reasons, but if you plan on turning it off sometimes you should expect higher rates of dust accumulation.

Well, I don't think the inconveniences I just mentioned are a big deal, however I'am deducting a star because of the intial difficulty to install the first pci card which in my case was of course my graphics card.

The case is extremely well made. I think the manufacturer wants to show the quality as the case is wrapped in a sewn bag inside the substantial box it comes in. Installing the components is easy, as there is plenty of room to move around.

The only complaint I have is the directions are in the form of a series of exploded diagrams but are so small that it was very difficult for my aging eyes to see.

In use, the machine is barely audible and the fans keep everything nice and cool. I have a Xeon 3440 CPU that runs between 31 and 37C.

I would definitely buy this case again.

I use to have the Cooler Master HAF 932 full tower case. Compared to the SilverStone Raven 2, I think the Raven 2 is way better than the HAF 932. The Raven 2 is longer in lenght but the design is smoother and looks more professional sitting on my desk. HAF 932 has a rugged look which is not bad but the case has so much air flow, the fan noise can get annoying sometimes. I choose the Raven 2 over the HAF 932 because the Raven 2 has a clear window in one side and the air flow design is pretty good and with less fan noise. The 90degree motherboard design is actually pretty helpfull when attaching/deattaching components.

CON - The lights in front of the case is pretty bright! Power/reset bottons feel cheap.

Summary - Im pretty happy with this case. Plenty of room for upgrades including expensive liquid cooling which im in the process of putting together.
