MILO ML03B

Low Profile
Without Sacrificing Expansion Options
 
front view

Continuing where the popular Grandia GD05 left off, the Milo ML03 HTPC case again combines the full size features of the Grandia series with small form factor dimensions. The slimmer Milo ML03 stands only 4.1in. (105mm) high and 13.3in. (340mm) deep, making it extremely easy to integrate into any living room. Incredibly, this case can accommodate up to three 3.5in. hard drives or five 2.5in. HDDs or SSDs through its intelligently-designed drive cages; what's more, it can mount either size without the use of adapters.

For cooling, the ML03 can be outfitted with up to four 80mm fans - that way, users can choose to build a quiet system with low power components or a powerful HTPC with a 140W CPU if needed. There are also numerous small touches including a pre-cut eyelet for VGA (D-SUB) connector, Kensington lock support, and an additional full size expansion slot for installing extra motherboard I/O, fan controller, or accessories products such as CLEARCMOS. For those looking to build an HTPC with good expansion and cooling capability but has limited room and budget, the SilverStone Milo ML03 is the one to get.

4 out of 5 eggsTight fit, but looks nice

Pros: Great case for an HTPC, especially for the price. Solidly built and looks nice.

Cons: This box is on the small size for a Micro ATX build, which makes it a little challenging. It's especially tight between the power supply and the DVD player. But if you're persistent, you can squeeze everything in and you end up with a nice, compact box.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for HTPC

Pros: Small form factor
Good air cross flow
Options

Cons: Small form factor
Internal front panel cabling is thick and gets in the way

Other Thoughts: This case was a great choice for my HTPC build. The internal space is tight but there are plenty of ways to configure your components and keep the cabling out of the way. Currently I have 2x 3.5" HDDs, 1x 2.5" HDD, 1x DVDRW, MicroATX Mainboard and PSU and 4 80mm case fans crammed in there.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Well made, looks nice, understated. Nice cable management built into case.

Cons: Plastic drive riser can't have mounting screws installed once you install a drive have to use right angle screwdriver. I left it out of the build entirely. USB 3.0 cable very long, the motherboard I used has its header right in the front so long cable coiled up and tied.

Other Thoughts: Left the HDD activity light disconnected for media use - too distracting. Depth of unit nice but still too large for my cabinet.

4 out of 5 eggssnazzy

Pros: Looks great. No front panel door to mess with.
Filters for both cpu fan (top) and psu (bottom) intakes.
Aluminum skin on the front panel looks nice.
Very light, but good overall build quality.
USB3 front panel ports (now standard).

Cons: The plastic edges running along the front bezel were slightly discolored, though this is impossible to notice from your couch so I didn't bother returning it. I did call Silverstone about it and they were very helpful.

Some screw holes were slightly misaligned, though it might be a result of flex in the case during building without the crossbeam support.

Would have been nice to have a stealth cover for the DVD/BD drive rather than having a plastic front to break up the aesthetics.

Standoffs for motherboard are not removable. Some of them near the front of the case are useless and make mounting fans difficult.

Other Thoughts: I was drawn to the ML04, but opted for this earlier version owing to price and features (namely, I didn't want a front panel door).

It's not that hard to build in this thing as long as you follow the manual, take your time, and place things in order.

As many have noted, be sure your PSU is less than 140 mm. I got a Silverstone SFX psu, which leaves plenty of room behind the BD-ROM drive.

My two HDDs started to get a little toasty for my taste, so I added a single 80mm fan and used silicon mounts. If you are going to use a fan, mount it FIRST before anything else. Otherwise you'll have to remove a few things to make it fit.

My build: i3-4130T + AC Freezer 11 LP, 2x2Gb DDR3, 1xSSD, 2xHDD, Silverstone SFX 300W

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Silverstone makes the best cases period
Great for HTPC
Solid design that feels durable

Cons: Still a little bigger than I would have liked to have, but I knew what I was getting.

Other Thoughts: My main rig is a 10 year old Silverstone case. That thing has been with me to more states than most people have been in their life. Other than a couple of mods I did to it, it still looks brand new. Silverstone products will last!

5 out of 5 eggsHTPC Build

Pros: Looked like what I expected with my order. Size is perfect for my needs, but requires creative thought to get everything into the limited interior space eg. wiring. (howevere, no surprize here).

Cons: Maybe just me, but I thought that the preinstalled wiring (2-usb 3.0 and audio/power/leds) were excessively long considering they only had to reach mini or macro board positions. Aside from that I can't really fault this case.

Other Thoughts: For someone wanting a HTPC case to go in their A/V system.....I would recommend. It's good looking and looks like it should be there.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: I like the look of this case. It blends in real well with the rest of my home theatre set-up. A lot of people complained about the textured front but I rather like it.
The case is small, as it should be for a HTPC case, and the design manages to squeeze in plenty of HDDs.
I noticed someone else complained that the HDD bracket above the front panel cables gets in the way, but the bracket is specifically designed as a pseudo-cable management option. The front panel cables get routed right through the thing and are held in place below your HDD.

Cons: While I just defended the use of the bracket to route the front panel cables, their placement is still rather cumbersome. I liked the bracket being used to manage them, but dislike their placement.

The worst thing about this case, in my opinion, is the supplied cable to go from the front panel USB 3.0 ports to the motherboard is longer than the diagonal length of the case itself, even though the ports are in the middle-front of the case and the motherboard mounts directly behind it. I have more than a foot and a half of spare cable length that is really hard to manage in a tiny HTPC case. Now I understand that the length needed varies based on the port placement on the motherboard you use, but this is way overkill. To make it worse, on my particular motherboard the ports could not have possibly been closer to the front panel. This may not be the case for you, but I'm certain you will still have way more cable length than you could possible use.

Other Thoughts: For some reason I could not use their "belt style" cable ties. But I had a bag of my own that I used instead. Just give me simple "zip ties" not these fancy belt tie things.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good overall look to blend in with A/V equipment
Space to mount 3 Hard drives and an optical(see cons also)
Fits mATX board and stock intel 775/1150/1156/1155 cooler
Fits standard PSU
Filter for PSU vent and for above CPU

Cons: Even though this case is large as HTPC cases go you will want to plan out devices very carefully. If the PSU or the Optical drive aren't as small as you can get one will not fit with the other. Cable mounting is tough as would be servicing anything in it after its together due to size. Front texture is a little odd with a regular black optical drive in the case.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid build & very sleek, sexy looking.
Well ventilated. Even comes with a magnetized dust filter for the top air vent. It's easily removed for cleaning.

Cons: VERY tight on space. (All the cables are bunched on top of the PCI slots of the motherboard.)
Top dust filter is in the way if you want your TV/Monitor sitting on top of it.

Other Thoughts: If you put a microATX board in it, you have 0 room for error. The power supply mounts right behind the CD/DVD drive so there's just enough room for the cables. Wire everything before securing it.

4 out of 5 eggsDONT get regular PSU

Pros: Very Nice looking case, just like a stereo component, pretty sold as well, seems to have a lot of vents too so I don't think my build will be choking on heat. what sold me was the looks, see below for details on the do's and don't with this particular case.

Cons: If you plan on installing a PSU and a bluray/dvd drive don't bother buying a full size PSU, get a micro PSU, the space between the Drive and PSU dosent exsist AT ALL , your normally PSU and DVD drive are both almost 6 inches each, even a modular PSU is almost impossible, so if you DO plan on installing a dvd/bluray know that they both wont fit in the space given, if no drive then your fine to use any PSU you want.

Other Thoughts: I ended up going back and buying a different PSU, FSP Group FSP400-60GHS(85)-R 400W Micro ATX12V as I wanted a bluray drive, I haven't gotten it yet but its 2 inches shorter, which will give me plenty of room for cable management for the optical drive
