Specifications, Availability and Pricing




Outside of the Ravager, you have a plastic front panel that has bold protrusions on both sides of the three mesh bay covers at the top, while the bottom is a mix of a mesh insert centered with another bold section that stands proud. At the top of the mesh and plastic center piece, there is a large power button surrounded with a trapezoidal shaped ring that will glow blue when powered up. The top of the chassis has the I/O panel at the front in a sunken area that reminds me of a catch all tray. Behind that you find a large mesh insert taking up the majority of the top panel. The left side panel has a mesh area that allows for optional fans to be installed and the right side panel is flat. All around the chassis, the front, the top and both side panels, there have been light blue graphics applied that are made to look like something tore into the chassis with either bear-like strength or some sort of steel claw.


Inside the chassis you get a pair of 120mm fans that come along with the Ravager, one in the front and one in the rear of the chassis. There are three 5.25" drives with tool-less clips on one side of the bays. Below that there are two racks that can hold three each of 3.5" or 2.5" storage drives. Speaking of which, the top three trays and the cage are completely removable in the Ravager. You then run into the motherboard tray which is painted light blue and can house a Micro-ATX and ATX motherboard along with a couple other ones smaller than ATX. In the roof you have the option to add two 120mm or 140mm fans while the floor offers room for one additional 120mm fan, so in all there are five places for optional cooling. In the back of the chassis you will find seven light blue slot covers over the expansions slots with matching colored thumbscrews.


It actually seems to be a bit easier to locate the Ravager than the Stealth was. That being said, out of the five locations I found it, the pricing was pretty much the same across the board. On the low end was Newegg and TEK with an $89.99 price point, but TEK includes the shipping. One thing that swings the vote to the Newegg listing is that you can also apply for the current mail in rebate to get the Ravager for $64.99 plus the $9.99 to ship it.


At $74, you usually get one fan and not much for options or features, but the Stealth proved that wrong. Let's see if the Ravager can hold up as well as its air borne brethren in combat.
