5 out of 5 eggsSilverstone delivers again!

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is a VERY VERY good case, especially for the money. The case is very versatile, allowing you to install a wide variety of HDDs, Optical Drives, as well as SSDs. The case supports a standard MicroATX board, large number of 3.5 Drives, 2x5.25 Drives, as well as support for a very decentlty sized power supply. The back of the case allows for VERY good wire management. The CPU Cooler additional support arm kind of baffled me at first until I read the manual and discovered what it was. A VERY nice addition to the case and something I hadnt seen before. The HDD tower cage even has an additional bumper you can install to provide additional support (and prevent ground contact) for an extra long graphics card, another VERY nice addition. The power supply loads from the top, allowing you to easily drop the PSU into the case without having to manage it into the case with a motherboard and expansions cards already installed. Easily removable magnetic and clip loaded filters were a VERY nice touch. Silverstone took their time with the design of this case, really tried to step outside of the box on a traditional style MicroATX Desktop case. If you are looking to build something moderate with decent specs and decent cooling without taking up a massive footprint then this is the case to go for.

Cons: The case has very little design aspects that I can take issue with. The side panels were difficult to work with once they had been taken off. Aside from that the only problem I had was having to take the top panel off for the power supply, but this is one of those trade one thing to have another situations.

Other Thoughts: The case is very well designed, includes VERY easily removable filters, allows for a very decent build, and is very VERY reasonably priced, especially considering all the features it includes as well as 2 fans.

1 out of 5 eggs2 days beyond replacement

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: I was pleased with the setup and ease of use. This case was easy to complete and build.

Cons: -The front panel USB 3.0 is grounding out, once a usb drive is inserted the metal plate on the left side of the case which covers the two USB 3.0 and Audio ports becomes charged once you touch the case in this area or remove a USB thumb drive the system cuts out and everything powers down.

-The screws that are shipped with the case strip out very easily.

- the spacers for the motherboard are part of the case no additional hardware provided.

Other Thoughts: - First and very likely last Silverstone case.

- I promoted building systems for the workplace. I have had excellent experiences with merchandise from newegg through out the years.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone. Please contact our US office directly to see if we may help you replace the defective front I/O port module. Below is our contact information:

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent MicroATX Case

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: I love the versatility of MicroATX cases as I often end up using them for htpc purposes. This one is my favorite, bar none. Excellent cable management. Front usb3.0. Convenient intake fan filters. Accommodates large gpu. Excellent cooling options as it has room for three 120mm case fans and will support a fairly large cpu heatsink/fan (I installed a hyper evo 212, but I did end up flipping the fan to a pull configuration because it was uncomfortably close to the hdd bay). Also, I really like the dimensions though some would opt for more depth. I like the depth as is because this case will work well if I decide to lay it on its side and put in an entertainment center. I could go on but bottom line I'm a big fan of this design.

Cons: It is tight to work in but that is to be expected of any case of this size. The position of the hdd cage will limit the height of your memory and might impact your motherboard power connector or usb3.0 header depending on motherboard configuration, so shop smart. However you could always ditch the cage and still fit two 3.5 hdds and two ssds with the right 5.25 adaptor. I do recommend having a magnetic screwdriver for the install as there are some screws that are hard to reach. Also, some extra black screws would have been nice. Personally, I don't consider any of these cons, just things to consider when shopping.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Case

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: I really enjoy this purchase. This case was nice to build in. It is quiet and keep my parts cool. The filtered intakes are great and easy to remove for cleaning. I don't think that as of writing this review there is a better value for a micro-atx case on the market.

Cons: No cons.

5 out of 5 eggsGood compromise between size, value, and performance

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Quiet, good cooling, with nice air filters on every intake. Uses positive pressure to make sure incoming air goes through one of these filters minimizing dust buildup.

Setup such that you can use the entire length of the case for an extra long graphics card. It even has a built in support.

Comes apart nicely for easy access to the area behind the (removable) MB back plate

Cons: This is a Micro ATX case, so you're going to make some compromises on component sizes. These are cons, but I'm not taking off an egg for any of them, as you always have to make compromises on space with this form factor and I think the compromises they've made are generally good.

- Watch the length (depth) of your PSU. The case supports up to 180mm PSUs, but at that length you're going to have trouble routing cables through the back plate and you're going to be encroaching on the optical drive bay. I went with a 160mm (6.3") depth PSU and am glad I didn't go much larger.

- The removable drive cage overlaps with the lower left hand corner of your motherboard, which can be an issue if that's where your motherboard manufacturer decided to put the USB 3.0 header.

- If you have a large heatsink, you will also have very little clearance when installing full-sized hard drives in the drive cage. There's room for one full sized hard drive below the drive cage which is unlikely to have clearance issues. If your heatsink has a removable fan that can be installed on the rear to pull air through rather than push, you'll have a bit more room to work.

- No PWM fans included with the case, but they're easy to swap out.

- There is a potential hot spot above the graphics card unless you flip the PSU to exhaust air from the case, which means your PSU is likely to run hotter/louder. You could also install a slot cooler above the graphics card, but I've yet to find a slot cooler that isn't loud/whiny.

4 out of 5 eggsAn almost perfect MicroATX case

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case has almost everything you'd want in a high performance MicroATX case.

- compact size and lightweight
- good airflow
- dust filters on all intakes
- positive pressure
- PSU air stream separate from rest of components
- lots of room for routing cables behind the motherboard
- cut out for installing aftermarket coolers without removing the motherboard
- many drive bays, including 2x 5.25, 4x 3.5, and 1x 2.5, and vibration damping foam for hard drives
- structural support for tower heatsinks (!!)

Cons: The compact size of the case means you may run into some issues with certain motherboards. I installed an ASUS Maximus VII GENE in this case, which has the LGA1150 socket position further to the front of the case than in most Z97 motherboards, due to the huge MOSFET heatsinks. This means that the DIMM slots are also moved up. This caused the following issues:

- The pushing fan of the tower cooler ran right up to the end of hard drives installed in the cage, making it impossible to connect cables to the hard drives.
- Installed hard drives would interfere with tall DIMM modules that had heatsinks (making it even harder to install cables).

All this could have been fixed if the hard drive cage was designed to be a little further from the motherboard, both in length and in depth. I ended up installing one hard drive in the built-in, non-dampened 3.5" bay (which has lower airflow) and one drive in the 5.25" bay with the provided adapters.

All in all, a suboptimal situation. Compare your motherboard to the Maximus VII GENE before buying this case. If the LGA1150 socket is as far forward or more so, you should pick something else.

Other Thoughts: I bought this case as a replacement for an Antec Mini P180, which was probably almost perfect in every way, except perhaps its size, until USB 3.0 came out. This case is a worthy replacement to fill its shoes.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this little case

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: This thing is big enough on the inside so that I can fit all the things I want in there, and with the extra hard drive bays removed, the airflow is fantastic. It's small enough on the outside so that you barely notice it under your desk and It can be moved around with very little effort. Oh and it's a good price

Cons: NONE

4 out of 5 eggsProblems with front USB

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Nice build quality - fit and finish is top notch. The filters are a must for dust enviroments, or when sitting on the floor of a house with pet hair.

Cons: I had a problem with the front panel USB ports: this part MUST come from SilverStone, not a commercial part. It took many phone calls and emails, and about a month later, I finally received a good-faith replacement (without sending anything back). The USB ports would not sufficiently power an external drive. Plugged a dual USB3.0 breakout cable directly into motherboard, and all was well.

The second problem I had was there were no usable mounting provisions for an SSD on the drive cage. I ended up removing the cage, and drilling a few custom holes to mount an SSD directly to the bottom of the case.

Other Thoughts: This was a build for a SOHO customer, and I wanted to be sure they had a professional looking case. Fit the bill there, but embarrassed I had to later return to replace the front panel USB ports (I had to deliver before the replacement arrived)

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent mid-range case

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is an excellent mid-range case for a MicroATX system build that offers good value for the price. The included fans are virtually silent, and an older SATA is noisier than the fans. It is fairly lightweight, so you will need to take care during assembly to avoid bending any chassis parts. I liked it enough that I purchased a second when upgrading the computer our kids use daily for homework.

Cons: Would have liked another integrated cable tie down spot near the CPU cooler for fan wires. Included fan cables are not sleeved.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for something a little more high end, the Temjin (TJ08-E) case is about the same size, with an aluminum front panel, versus plastic.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Built - Sturdy - Roomy Impressive Features

This review is from: SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: This is a very well built case that you will be proud to own. It has a very nice finish with no burrs. I liked the increase interior size because of the layout. It comes with 3.0 USB and audio inputs. Also case fans are very quiet too. I love the routing of cables and fan filters in this small matx case. It packs a lot of locations for placement of your additional hardware.

Cons: I do not see any issues with this case.

Other Thoughts: It is so quiet that you can not hear it run with the PSU and heat sink fans that I used. (PWM fans)
