Three new designs from Silverstone based on the same internal layout and are about to offer braided cabling

Silverstone's CES 2013 bag of tricks gets us excited for some cases!

CES 2013 - Meeting with Tony in the Silverstone suite I was introduced o tree future chassis designs. The chassis in this image is the RV04, yes this is the new Raven! The front of the chassis pulls air through the side, and forces it through this inverted ATX chassis interior. They have had many users say that the typical ninety degree rotated interior wasn't what they wanted, so Silverstone now offers this internal layout for the new revision.

Right next to the Raven is the new FT04, or Fortress series of cases. This chassis keeps the same exact interior, this time plus sound dampening material. The front uses a rolled aluminum front bezel reminiscent of the TJ11 uni-body design with rounded edges.

The last chassis that is to hit the market is the Mammoth MM01. This chassis will offer room for an Extended ATX motherboards, has a spill proof, an aluminum sliding bay cover, and one very cool feature that I have never seen inside of a chassis...

...a HEPA filter. With the restrictions on the fans of pulling this trough this filter, Silverstone wanted to still offer great performance in cooling and is why they chose to use the white AP183 fans that offer much better air flow through this as it traps dust and even allergens. In an older house with lots of dust, the MM01 will stay clean much longer, and Silverstone will offer replacement filters for when this one chokes with dust.

For those who like braided cable to clean up a build, Silverstone is now offering full PSU replacement wires for their power supplies, and since all of the PSU connections are standard on every Silverstone PSU, even if you change models, the cables can go along with the new PSU as well. For those looking to just extend existing wires, there will be red, black and white offerings to add to your PC. On the low end of the cable pricing you are looking at $7 a cable, and for things like the 24-pin, you should expect to pay closer to $12. Either route you take, I don't think anyone will be disappointed with these offerings I have seen today!
