Can Silverstone continue their winning streak with the RV03, a design where the PSU is at the front of the case and the window is finally on the correct side? Read on to find out!

I like this case and at £114 it's a bargain, I think the RV02 does look better though just a shame it's the wrong way around.

Nice review as always, I wish the case manufacturers would spend a few pounds more on the window and have it recessed or even on the inside to make it look better.

Cant recomend this case enough. I was unsure about it initially. But I absolutly LOVE IT.

And yeah the top light glows red in the centre to act as the HDD led.

Also you get a large double side sticky pad with the case. So if you DO run a optical drive. you can stick the front panels to the drive tray. So the front of the case is not ruined by a optical drive.

I like this case , but I am getting a Corsair H100. Will the Corsair H100 fit on the fan mounts on the front where the two 120mm fan mounts are inside the case on the HDD cages?

have to admit this case has grown on me in a very short time. I've watched some other reviews that go thru the build process and some things have been cleared up. My only strong dislikes are the lack of fire-wire port in front user IO panel, the power supply(no large 1000+ watt supplies), they could have used tool-less HDD docking instead of those raised brackets and the drive access bezels. If you have a bay device installed (especially double bay) you cant have a bezel on it. As wide as the case is they could have come up with something better still using the design or at the very least made it a full door cover (which i hate having to continuously open and close to access bay devices)
