SilverStone Grandia Series ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Building off the successful GD04 and GD05, two chassis models that set benchmarks in 2009, SilverStone created the Grandia GD06 to again raise the expectation enthusiasts have for HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) chassis. SilverStone engineering team's expertise in SFF (Small Form Factor) and HTPC are again in full display with GD06's expanded capability in storage and cooling performance. These improvements were made with the compact depth maintained (340mm) and exterior visuals enhanced as the GD06 is stunningly beautiful as a computer chassis and fits perfectly in the living room.

Its five hard drive storage is augmented by two hot-swappable bays for maximum flexibility while a front door lock and a rear Kensington Security Slot ensure security for the installed drives. Cooling is provided by three 120mm silent fans with filters for exceptional performance, quietness and effective dust prevention. For those in doubt that a small footprint HTPC chassis can be used to build a powerful and fully loaded media server, the Grandia GD06 will change their mind.

5 out of 5 eggsHTPC build

Pros: Nice appealing case, blends well with home theater components. Maximum PC did a build using this case and I mirrored their build. If you look up the article just use the key words Build It: A First-Class Gaming & Media PC for the Living Room. Only difference is now I have 4TB drives and upgraded fan for the hard drive bays....and an I7 3770 chip. Anydvd HD, WinISO and Pavtube are the tools I used for movie encoding ripping

Very quiet as well, new fan added a little more sound but still negligible.

Cons: Tight, very tight. Upgrade the fan that is next to the drive bay, I have two 4tb drives and they got HOT in there. Upgraded fans to the expensive $30 models listed here in Newegg...sorry can't recall the brand, but the are sweet and drives are no long hot to touch, just light warm! The rubber piece under the hard drive cage is garbage, just rip it off, all wiring is too tight for build. Have LOTS of zip ties handy to allow better airflow for cable management. Be patient, the build will take a while but it is worth the effort.

Other Thoughts: Get the rear exhaust fans with the case. Worth it for cooling.

1 out of 5 eggsAwful experience after several months

Pros: Looks nice when the front door stays on.

Cons: The front door keeps falling off and we have to chase the little gears that hold it so they don't roll somewhere under the furniture. Sick and tired of this case. Will be replacing it with something else.

Other Thoughts: This is a follow up to my previous review. This case was a waste of money.

4 out of 5 eggsNice media center case

Pros: Nice media center case for a HTSPC build. Good build instructions included with the case and also available on the web. You can get them from the product link. It's a tight fit, but everything you need will go in if you download the instructions, follow the size guidelines in them for PS, RAM, and cooler size when selecting your HTSPC parts.

Cons: 120mm fans are LOUD! Much louder than the spec would lead you to think. I took off 1 egg for fan noise.

Other Thoughts: Chose your parts carefully. I had to revise my build with a Dynatron K985 92mm Ball CPU Cooler and Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLS8G3D1609ES2LX0 vs what I originally planned and only use the bottom 2 ports on my CoolerMaster PS to get everything to fit. But no complaints, I got 3-3.5, 1 2.5 HDDs, a BRD RW and everything else in, it runs cool and looks good in my HT system rack.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone. The fans included in the GD06 have 3pin connectors and are designed to run well at reduced voltages. So if you find the fans are too loud for you, please check in your motherboard BIOS for settings that can help you reduce fan speed or voltage.

1 out of 5 eggsDid I get a different product???

Pros: I can't believe the positive reviews. Did I get a different product? It does not fit a standard ATX power supply! I had two options: hack the back panel or get rid of the drive sleds, which - by the way - are utterly useless and just waste space. Who needs hot swappable bays in an HTPC case??? If you mount a 2.5" drive on the top, there is no way to plug in SATA power connector, not enough space. Cable management is awful. Front panel cables are way too long. It gets one star for good looks. It really does look good and that's why I was determined to build this.

I got rid of the drive bays, glued the covers on and attached a media hard drive and a boot SSD with zip ties and velcro.

Soft metal, screws and holes don't align properly, mainly for the power supply and for the optical drive

It's absolutely the worst case I ever worked on.

Cons: Doesn't fit a standard ATX power supply, despite the description

Useless, gimmicky, unnecessary hot-swap drive bays

Poor cable management

Cables way too long

Weak, soft metal parts, screws and holes don't align

Other Thoughts: Looks really good, fits nicely on the shelf due to shallow depth

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone. The GD06, due to its short-depth design and hot-swap bays has very strict limitation for power supply depth. We detailed this and other limitations in the manual, which is also downloadable from the below link:
http://www.silverstonetek.com.tw/downloads/Manual/case/Multi-GD06-Manual.pdf

Standard ATX PSU has a dimension of 150mm x 86mm x 140mm, but many higher wattage models have exceeded this size by up to 160mm, 180mm, or longer unfortunately. However, you can find many 400W ~ 500W models still adhering to the original ATX spec that will fit in the GD06. We even offer 400W, 500W, 600W, and 700W ourselves that are standard size with our "Strider Essential" series. Below is a link to them on Newegg:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=silverstone+es&N=-1&isNodeId=1

If you do not need hot-swap bays, we also offer another version of this case that does not have them in the GD05:

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent HTPC

Pros: Plenty of fans for such a small case; sturdy and low-profile; front locks; hard drive swap mechanism is flawless; USB 3.0 in front panel; aesthetically excellent

Cons: Requires smaller PSU; tight squeeze for parts and cable management; HDD SATA cables are SATA II and not replaceable; only two hard drive bays; too small to accept Hyper 212 CPU cooler

Other Thoughts: I built this originally as a gaming/HTPC with an Asus Maximus V Gene, 560 Ti Twin Frozr, and i5-3570K. Works perfectly and quietly; running Mass Effect 3 in 1080p stressed it out and it stayed pretty quiet and cool. My OCZ PSU was too big by just a few millimeters, a fact I didn't realize until most of the way through the build. Make sure to measure yours first. I swapped out the stock Silverstone fans and added 40mm fans on back and it works great. I'd recommend a big 3TB drive and a smaller OS HDD since there are only two HDD slots, both of which have a proprietary SATA bracket which can't be replaced. Somewhere it also mentioned that it could accept 120mm CPU cooler if the optical drive bracket was removed; Hyper 212 Plus was about 2mm too big. Overall, excellent case for an HTPC or microATX build.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC/Gaming case w/6" height limitation

Pros: -Asthetics, a true HTPC case
-Locking front panel to keep the little ones out
-Lots of HDD/SSD configuration options
-Can fit large GPU's
-Front cover has enough clearance to fit small RF dongles while not reducing their performance

Cons: -Doesn't fit the silverstone ST50F-P modular PSU with fan in down orientation with modular hdd bays installed
-Stock fans are a little loud
-Too many screw sizes
-Optical drive mount blocks large portion of cpu cooler and ram height
-No good way to install H70 cooler

Other Thoughts: As a combo HTPC/Server/Gaming case, this case has been great. With all of my components my entertainment center limited me to a 6" tall HTPC case. As has been previously stated, the HDD hot swap bays limit you being able to install some modular PSUs with the fan facing down. The nice part is that you can simply take them out. It leaves a hole in the front of the case, but it isn't visible with the front cover closed. With the hot swap bays gone the PSU can be mounted with the fan facing down. The bridge still allows you to mount two storage drives. FWIW, my samsung F1 3.5" HDD ran about 10C hotter when installed above the power supply. My 2.5" HDD doesn't see a temp difference.

The optical drive mount limits ram and cpu heatsink height. But once again, the optical drive mount can be taken out if you don't need it. Heatsink & ram limitations are now only limited by the case height. FWIW, a thermaltake cnps8900 fits under the optical mount.

With the components listed below, and the hot swap & optical mounts removed, the system idles at 34c. After a few hours of Civilization V the CPU/GPU/HDD temps are all between 40c & 45c with the loudest components being the case fans. I may swap them at some point but it's still quieter than an idle ps3.

-Silverstone GD06B w/ST50F-P modular PSU & short cable kit
-Intel i5-3570k
-Zalman cnps8900
-Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H
-32GB Crucial Ballistic 1600mhz CL9
-HIS 7850 IceQ X
-Crucial M4 256gb
-WD blue 500gb 2.5"
-Logitech K400

1 out of 5 eggsReally disappointed

Pros: Looks good, has a good heft to it. Fairly sturdy

Cons: I have yet to find a power supply that fits without removing parts from the case. Did they even practice building this before mass production?

Noise-reducing rubber on the hard drive bracket simply glued on.

Hot swap bays only stay closed when the bracket is in, so they fling out at you annoyingly when you remove it.

The case isn't painted all the way through, nor was it masked properly so there's tons of overspray and it looks really ugly on the inside, especially with a giant "MADE IN CHINA" etched into it. Paint is also really poor quality, in swapping out 3 power supplies to find one that would fit, the retention screws removed the paint. I didn't even fully tighten them.

Stingy with the supplied screws and the instructions had the smallest pictures possible. I had to keep checking how they wanted me to orient my drive before I tossed it and just figured it out.

Front panel won't stay up without being locked.

Other Thoughts: The biggest burn for this case was the power supply. When I pulled a power supply I had laying around for a HTPC case, I figured it might not work and that was fine. The manual recommended one of their short power supplies, the ST50F-P, I went and got that too but, joke's on me, once the modular cables are attached it no longer will fit! That and they bring these rubber mounts for the power supply that need to be attached to the bottom to give it enough height to screw into the back, but obviously after you do this a few times searching for a power supply made of unobtainium the stickiness is just not going to be there.

Overall, this case is pretty bad and not worth the asking price. I had a full tower from Silverstone and I liked it a lot so when I needed a HTPC case I looked right to them. I thought Silverstone was a premium brand, but I guess I was wrong.
