The Top Panel

In Figure 8, you can see the top part of Raven RV01.

This case comes with two USB ports – which are too close to each other, preventing the installation of two “fat” USB devices at the same time – and one FireWire port. We think that a high-end case like this should have come with an eSATA port here.

In Figure 10, you can see the top panel with its cover removed. This cover is used only during transportation, since when you are using the computer you need to have access to the connectors present on the rear side of the motherboard, which are now available on the top part of the case. This case comes with a 120 mm fan on the top, a place for installing SilverStone's SST-CLEARCMOS product and the slot covers are meshed, which is great to improve the PC internal airflow. We think, however, that a high-end case like this should have come with black slot covers instead of silver. There is also a mesh above the place where the daughterboards are installed, which is also great to improve the airflow. Each side panel is removed by sliding a latch available here.

On Figures 11 and 12 you can see the top panel after we built a PC using this case.
