Specifications, Availability and Pricing
SilverStone keeps the same black metal and plastic exterior as with the RV01, this time with less plastic and more 0.8mm steel. The SST-RV02-BW does come with a window in the side panel; it's just that this time it happens to be the right side panel. So if you want to look into the chassis of the RV02 you must place it to your left. The chassis size is a bit smaller internally this time, only housing ATX and mATX motherboards, where the RV01 could house extended ATX as well. Where there is a small loss in motherboard room, the RV02 makes up for it in the total of eight 5.25" bays, of which three are needed for the HDD suspension system. In essence all of your drives can be placed just about anywhere you want.
The original RV01 was more of a traditional tower in its shaped and measurements. This time the RV02 is shorter from the table to the top, but longer, around 26" long to be more specific. This length works to change the position of the PSU from the bottom of the RV01 to the top right corner of the RV02. The other major plus to all this length is the ability to line the floor of the RV02 with three 180mm fans, that all have separate speed switches found outside the chassis. These three combined with the single 120mm exhaust fan in the top of the chassis cover the supplied fans.
At this point in time there are only five e-tailers that are showing up in my Google searches. Let me say this, be careful where you buy, I see prices ranging from right around $160 all the way up to and above the $250 mark. This isn't going to bode well for some of the e-tailers, as I know most people look for the best deal from a reputable dealer. On the lower end of the pricing, I was able to get the best of both. I found the Raven SST-RV02-BW at Newegg for the price of $179.99, plus an additional $25 for shipping. So for just over $200 USD you can have a sleek, long, matte black chassis sitting next to you.
