The RVZ02 will need a bit of aesthetic improvement but great to see they've paid some attention to ease of build. The RVZ01 is a good case but was a bit awkward to build with. Looks like they've done away with the slim case fans but that shouldn't really be a problem.
Looks like they realised if the components are next to air they don't need chassis fans; that and the simplified GPU fitting has saved a ton of space.

Aesthetics wise this being the first prototype I'll forgive it, it's not ugly but I'm not sold either. I am not a fan of the Raven fascias though, I much prefer the ML07 which in the current gen is the same case as the RVZ01 but much better looking IMO. I hope they do something similar here.

One last thing that would sell it for me would be a short (PSU) cable set for this case. Of course you're going to use a Silverstone power supply in it, they don't have much competition in the SFX department.
The chassis looks like a solid design but I agree the aesthetics could do with a bit of work; maybe a bit of modding will handle that.

I think that combined with the SFX-L PSU, this could be what I'm looking for. I have heard the upgrade to the 120mm fan is a lot quieter than the smaller 80mm fans in normal SFX PSU's.
I used to own the RVZ01 (gave it to my bro now) and whilst it wasn't hard to work with, the way that they've changed it just makes it even easier to work with now.

Well done to Silverstone!

I have the 600w sfx, I don't notice it. Could be that it only gets worked up when the gpu is running hard in which case that would drown it out anyway.

The 600w one came with short flat cables already, looks like the 500-l does too. Does help a lot.
