Silverstone's new Raven Z RVZ01 Mini-ITX case is designed with small form factor builds in mind that need to lay horizontal for inclusion into a living room setup. Measuring in at just 15-inches wide by 13.5-inches deep, this case will fit into any space with clearance of about 4.5-inches, which makes it the perfect size for home theater use or to build that custom Steam Machine. The Raven Z RVZ01 has enough room inside for a decent sized GPU, ample storage, and even an AIO Liquid Cooling Solution.

Silverstone has removed the full 5.25-inch bay and replaced it with a space sized perfectly for a slot-load dvd drive, while enough room for a small PSU still exist. Magnetic dust filters cover the intake ports which makes for very easy cleaning. The fans pictured are part of Silverstone's new chassis fan lineup and are less than half the thickness of a regular 120mm fan. Finishing things off are vibration isolating rubber feet which ensure a quiet living room gaming experience
