Great solid case and no patience here.

Optimus73, Amazon
31 March 2015
  • Summary: This is a very nice and solid case. My only irk is when you add the internal storage, it was a pain in the rear. You have to mount an SSD first then the 3.5' hard drive over it onto this support beam over the power supply on the right hand side.

Plastic front panel? Seriously?

Clockspring, Amazon
8 March 2015
  • Summary: I own the previous version of this case but was very disappointed to see that Silverstone has replaced the great looking, high quality, brushed aluminum front panel with a cheap plastic version. Additionally there is no front cover plate for the DVD drive.

Nothing bad to say about it at all

Akensai, Amazon
25 February 2015
  • Summary: Purchased this for my long awaited "HTPC-Gamer" build, something I have been wanting to do since about 2006. Nothing bad to say about it at all, albeit I am barely a week into use. The end result here is a fairly quiet high-end gaming computer that is used for movies/live-tv/gaming.

Such media! WOW

  • Summary: Great case. Good design for ventilation and cooling. My one gripe is the optical bay sits right on top of the proc. So if you put a massive cooler in your computer then forget about shoving a BD drive in there.

... HTPC case for a long time and couldn't be happier that I went with this case

N. Faue, Amazon
24 October 2014
  • Summary: I've been wanting to put my HTPC into an actual HTPC case for a long time and couldn't be happier that I went with this case. Its big enough to fit everything, but not too big. It has a great build quality and I like the fake aluminum brushed front.

Great build quality, a couple of irritating oversights...

Andrew, Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Giving this four stars because of the stupid location for mounting ssd's and the silliness that is the sub 1/8" it would take to make fitting graphics cards easier. The case is well built, cools well and is pretty quiet even with fans at full speed.

Overall great product but some poor quality parts

Christopher D. Brown "CDB", Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: Overall I really like this product. The front panel power/reset/power LED/HDD Led block is cheap. Poor construction found the switches non-functional and, finally, three of the four wires just fell off.

Great quality case

Michael B, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: Very stylish minimal theater computer case. For the size it has great cooling (3x120mm) and enough room for 2-3 2.5" drives and a 5.25" bay. Recommended!
