Best Case Ever

Kirill O., Newegg
20 November 2014
  • Summary: A front facing handle, or another area to grip when carrying would be nice, not a fan of the slide cover for the top USB
  • Pros: Best case I have ever used, and owned. Quite expensive, but worth every penny. Quiet, sturdy, ergonomic, and easily catches an eye. Simplistic design makes this almost art piece. Interior design is great as well, fans are easy to remove, and clean.
  • Cons: Top fan has failed on me, and my friend. Starts making noise after about 2 years. Some cheap internal plastic components

User Review

Paul M., Newegg
28 June 2012
  • Pros: I didnt really know what I was getting. IT came highly recommend and now I know why. This case is huge and it is amazing. Fits way more then I can imagine. Old case didnt let me put in two video cards with 6 hard drives because of lack of space. Not in this case.
  • Cons: I lost my watch in this thing. Its so big, I guess i'll have to buy a new watch.

Great case - model updated

David S., Newegg
28 April 2012
  • Summary: This is a great case, and Silverstone's attention to quality and added details will keep your system clean, cool, and nice to view. A modular power supply really makes this case look nice. If I had my old power supply, wires would be all up in the case without a lot of places to hide them.
  • Pros: First off, this case has been updated. These updates aren't in the Newegg specs, and it was a pleasant surprise when I unboxed the case. The model I received was updated to include USB 3.0 in the front panel. It also was updated with the AP181 Air Penetrator fans, and a bracket for mounting an SS...
  • Cons: Be careful about installing a 120 radiator in the roof. It might not fit. My Corsair H60 radiator fits right up against the expansion slots. I wish they would have included an 8th expansion slot. Installing the PSU was a pain in the rear, and the velcro strap that Silverstone provides did not aid...

Wonderful case

Matthew D., Newegg
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Just know there are only 7 expansion slots. Even if you wanted to get 3 video cards in there, I don't know if you could because the last expansion slot is very close to the optical bays, leading to possible conflicts with those super high end setups.
  • Pros: Great build quality and finish. Great cooling, very quiet with fans on low. When fans are high, can feel the air 5 feet above the case. Fairly easy install. Beautiful to look at (for me anyway)
  • Cons: The cpu cutout on the mb backplate doesn't fit with my 1155 aftermarket cooler...it seems the placement is off a bit for that board? Other than that, the case fits my bill perfectly.

BAUHAUS Design...

Wester W., Newegg
9 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this case from a source other than NEWEGG, it was, matter of fact a local store that (unbelievably) beat NEWEGG's price - a rarity indeed.
  • Pros: Case is a statement of design excellence as witnessed by the many positive reviews. Given its spaciousness, superb tolerances and heft it simply reeks of quality and is well worth the steep asking price. You will NOT regret having purchased this case - HIGHLY recommended!
  • Cons: Only one! As mentioned by previous reviewers, the back of the motherboard plate could use and additional quarter inch of room to facilitate easier cable management.

My favorite case

Jesse D., Newegg
28 November 2011
  • Summary: I would not hesitate to recommend this case to anyone who wants a solid, well made case. Well worth the money. If you are going to buy a high end mother board, CPU, RAM, et cetera - put in a case that is worthy of the parts and will show it off well. :)
  • Pros: Great layout, plenty of room, easy to work in, great thermal design, extremely solid feel, quiet and includes built in sound baffles - an all around terrific case and it looks sweet to boot.
  • Cons: None so far (bought it in January of 2011.)

WHATS NOT TO LOVE

Anonymous, Newegg
23 November 2011
  • Pros: Fan freaking-tastic case. Cable management is superb, anyone saying otherwise is doing it wrong. So many places to store cables its ridiculous. The airflow is wonderful. Arrived in excellent condition
  • Cons: Zip I cant use Oh my "divine being" (replaces G) Really newegg?

Outstanding design but minor execution glitches

Jack S., Newegg
6 November 2011
  • Summary: Silverstone did a great job in two key areas: 1. improved airflow (bottom to top) 2. reducing dust intake by raising the case above an aluminum frame I felt they could have gone one step further: with the motherboard rotated 90 degrees, all the USB ports are at the top of the case.
  • Pros: Really innovative airflow design keeps my 6 core Xeon below 36C even at load. Solidly built and the aluminum outer edge keeps the case and the fans 1" above the floor, reducing dust intake. Comes fully assembled and looks like a tank. I bought one of these for myself and a second a few months lat...
  • Cons: One minor glitch, but irritating in a $250 case: one of the 180mm fans made an incredible racket. The fan was touching the bottom rubber bracket. I had to add a thin rubber washer to stop the noise. Just adding 3mm more clearance between the fan and the bracket would avoid this problem. It's not ...

Revolutionary

David H., Newegg
7 October 2011
  • Summary: Everything is sideways. Positives and negatives that go with that. Mostly, it seems positive. Amazing to me that Silverstone is the only company doing this.
  • Pros: Amazingly quiet. Fantastic airflow. Tough. Quality build. It looks and feels like something you have paid a good chunk of money to own.
  • Cons: It is HEAVY and bulky. Hard to carry this thing with only one arm. Add to that a lack of good grips.
