Raven RV01 Chassis (SST-RV01B-W), Elegance updated

The Raven RV01 was originally introduced in 2008 as an extreme enthusiast chassis and it’s revolutionary 90 degree motherboard position and it’s sleek styling made it the envy of many enthusiasts. Appearing on the market when computer cases were being pushed on the market so fast and in so many styles it was hard for any one chassis to distinguish itself. At the time chassis were all about the side window and the exterior look, little attention was paid to cable management and it was all about the bling. SilverStone stepped up and early in the game recognized enthusiasts were a breed apart and designed a chassis with revolutionary features and a motherboard setup that puts the connections on top the computer instead of the back. Heat rises and in many chassis trapped in the top causing thermal buildup, the Raven recognizes this simple fact and from bottom to top is designed to move heat well from the bottom to the top and exhaust it.

SilverStone quietly updated the Raven RV01 but chose to leave the exterior in its original form, some things were just done correctly the first time and need no change. From the moment the Raven lands you will be impressed with the size of the box, then the packaging and when you pull it out of it’s fully protective environment the sleek look will set you back on your heels. With its inspiration being a Stealth Fighter Jet you can expect pointed accents and a nose cone like exhaust on the bottom.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.
