    :D Agreed the first cuppa is a lifesaver! Plus I notice a CustomPC mousemat too.. I used to read that mag, is it still going? It was an awesome read especially if your into building your own systems.

    I think over here it's called 'CustomPC' although the lettering looks exactly the same?

    Looking very well there. However - (lol) - what the heck are those speakers doing on the floor!!! That blasphemous, with respect to the sound itself. They'd sound much better on desktop level and you'd hear stereo separation so much better.

    that might be a problem if your floor is wood as it would absorb and muddy the sound but as i have a concrete floor they sound pretty damn good for something that isn't top of the line they's only a couple of shitty old technics from a 11yr old stereo plugged into an pioneer vsx-d457 and the fact that there is no more room on my desk

    What do you mean "how does it look"?

    As for the so many connections, it's cool connecting two or more PC's to it (2xhdmi's, D-Sub) and then switching between/among them.

    Yes, it is quite functional, it even has 2 audio inputs with 1 of them for HDMI just in case there's no sound through hdmi. It has 2 hdmi's, 1 display port, 1 d-sub, etc. but no dvi. : ( Oops.

    Another one shortage is that if something happens (heaven forbid) with the remote, I'll have to be looking for a new one or else I'll have to push the power button right on this panel every time I turn on my PC.

    Your SilverStone RaVeN RV02B-W is a sharp looking case. Myself I prefer simplicity and quality, that's why my last two case have been Lian-Li units.

    Very high quality and workmanship, all aluminum inside and out with an anodized black exterior finish. The button switches are good heavy-grade also.

    Here's a snap of my current unit:

    My digital camera is out on loan so I had to use jpegs from the Lian-Li website.

    that's a nice case but I like my RV02 better for the way it has the mobo and add in cards arranged no stress on the PCI-e slots and heat naturally rises so with the 3x 180mm fans everything is kept well and truly cooled plus at 17+ KG it's a good workout when moving it round
