TL;DR Cool concept case w/great aesthetic and cooling potential but not a lot of extra space.
The RVX01's central design point is that it has its I/O panel at the top of the case, rotating the MoBo 90 degrees (and flipping it to face the right side of the case), which Silverstone says cool your system more effectively, with intake air coming from bottom of the case and naturally radiating up as it is heated (and yeah, this thing is cool). In practice you'll notice that it also means that your GPU 'hangs' from the case, which ought to reduce stress on the connector and also puts it a bit out of harms way should my CPU cooler spring a leak (though I'm sure my RAM and Mobo wouldn't be very happy). The radiator fit at the bottom of my case with enough room for puller fans above it as well as the RX480, though positioning the GPU was tricky.
The 'back' of the case is just there so you can install the standoff screws- there is probably less than a cm of space back there, so most of my cable management happened around the HDD enclosure and next to the 240mm radiator at the bottom of my case.
There are no internal disk drive slots (doesn't matter to me) and I'd have liked to see the front USB hub have USB 3.0 (or USB C) but I think that's something I can mod in myself in the future if I feel the need. I would also have liked to have metal side panels that are a little more resistant to scratches but I guess that's what stickers are for.
