Summary: The micro-ATX PS07 deviates from the rest of Silverstone's Precision line in its small size and light weight. Its appearance is unblemished by brightly colored contrasting trim or splashy graphics, and is available in only white or black matte finish. The style is simple, with smooth flat surfaces and sharply angled edges, broken only by vented slots at either side of the front bezel, and a top-mounted power supply intake grill towards the rear.
Conclusion: Revisiting the SilverStone Precision PS07 was definitely a worthwhile endeavor, even if the performance results don't immediately bear that out. There's some extrapolation that has to be done, and some dots that need connecting, but SilverStone's assertions that this case was still competitive and was in fact well acoustically engineered were both correct. Where things get interesting is the way the micro-ATX market stratifies.
Summary: Final Thoughts
As I said in the introduction of this review micro ATX or smaller motherboards are becoming extremely popular. With that many people are building small form factor systems. The thing that I’ve seen is that many people have to sacrifice when building those systems, but with the Precision Series PS07 you do not. You can fit up to 5 hard drive inside, large video cards, a large CPU cooler and both micro ATX and mini ITX motherboards.
Pros: – Sleek design, – Lots of room inside considering its size, – Removable motherboard tray, – USB 3.0 support, – Easy cable management
Silverstone Precision Series PS07 Midi-Tower Chassis Review

Conclusion: I’m really impressed with the capabilities on offer with the PS07, not only in terms of it’s capability of holding high end components, but also its applications for the type of system you can build within it. It was only after that I completed the build that I regretted not putting a larger CPU cooler in there, sure our Akasa cooler is up to the job, but this system could have easily handled our Antec Kuhler 920 or our passive Cooler Master TPC 800.
Summary: It's impossible to talk about the SilverStone Precision PS07 without comparing it to the Temjin TJ08-E . The Temjin is superior in both thermal and acoustic performance thanks to its larger, better sounding stock fan, and its more direct intake vent. The PS07 uses smaller, less efficient fans that pull air from slots along the sides and bottom of the front bezel like many "silent" cases.
Summary: The Precision PS07 follows the same design concept as the SilverStone Temjin TJ08-E. It is a good option for users who want to build a small yet powerful computer and want a case that is more affordable than the
. The two cases are almost identical. The only differences between the two are that the TJ08-E has one big 180 mm fan with a two-speed controller on the front panel, an aluminum front panel, and an individual external/internal 3.5” bay.
Conclusion: With the SilverStone Precision PS07, I'm having a difficult time determining whether or not it's worth saving the $20 over their already awesome Temjin TJ08-E. The TJ08-E already ranks as one of my favorite enclosures of the year and probably my favorite Micro-ATX enclosure, so why wouldn't I heartily endorse making that same great internal design more readily available by producing a less expensive version? Thermally and acoustically, SilverStone's design is fantastic.
Conclusion: A mid- or full-tower enclosure will better suit enthusiast users, but if you are in need of a space-saving solution that looks great and packs a punch, the PS07 should be high on your shortlist.
Conclusion: Before you even start thinking about any hardware installation in this case, it would be a very good idea to route all your cables first, in accordance to the layout of your motherboard. Getting this done right from the start will save you the hassle of reinstalling certain hardware later on, which will save you much more time in the long run.
