Summary: I also own the FT03B-Mini (mini atx version of this case) and so I decided to get this for another build I was doing for a slightly more powerful computer. The craftsmanship is great in this case, there was only one issue I had, and that was the L angle of the power cable meant to connect to the...
Pros: -small footprint -easy to remove panels -vertical cooling path -simple cooling with filter -looks lovely -unique
Cons: -very difficult to find correct DVD drive. most options are wildly expensive. When I ordered this case Newegg didn't even have a compatible drive. If you manage to find a drive.... you will still need an unusual cable to power it. -cable management is difficult, especially if you install the disc...
Summary: Overall I love this case and it functions well for my mini gaming computer! There will always be the obvious problems when building a computer with a small case, and I think this case serves its function very well.
Pros: -Looks beautiful on desk -High quality aluminum sides -High quality fan comes with it -I kind of like the I/O on top of case as opposed to back -CPU water cooling works great
Cons: -The sides come off too easy, wish they would secure better -BARELY fit my 660 ti, should have an extra inch of card clearance -My GPU gets upward of 70-80 celcius, but taking the front panel cools card at least 15 degrees -Virtually no cable management -No room for disc reader with all my parts in
Summary: This case is easy to look at. The 90 degree rotation of the motherboard creates a chimney effect, blowing system heat right out the top vent. My main issue with the case itself is the top grate is cheap plastic. It doesn't fit flush in the front left corner.
Summary: Silverstone has made an interesting case that defies convention. It's good to have stylish alternative in the non-Apple world using mostly typical PC parts (except for the slim slot optical drive).
Summary: This is a really good case, it's as interesting and stylish as a PC case gets these days. I settled on this design after a solid week of looking but in one important department, it does fall short. I strongly recommend you look elsewhere if you plan to use this case as a portable PC.
Summary: The case really does look great, however the instructions have some steps almost backward. As well, you really really need a modular PSU. That side panel was a giant pain to put on, and all of them come off extremely easy so don't plan on moving the case much.
Summary: I got this because I got tired of having a case that was the same shape. I wanted something new and this was it. It's a great looking case. I took a star away because it's not the best assembled case.
Summary: It's a really beautiful case, but I may be purchasing a replacement from a competitor due to the unseating issue. I'll be getting replacement cables from Silverstone for the ST1000-P first to make sure it's not a cable issue.
Pros: Small, sweet, and compact Nice airflow design Does what it's supposed to
Cons: Cabling issues as others have mentioned - tight fit, but it works. An odd issue I'm discovering with mine is that the natural vibration of the case, coupled with the shifted motherboard angle, causes PCI-e power cables to wiggle out slightly - until they lose their connection, causing an instant ...
