The introduction of Grandia GD07 and GD08 cases from SilverStone ushers in a new era of home theater computing like never before. For the first time, the power and storage capacity of a server can now be neatly stowed beautifully and quietly in a home theater environment. Completely reengineered to fully utilize all available spaces, the Grandia GD07 can accommodate an incredible amount of drives (up to eleven) and high-end components (graphics cards up to 13.6 inches long) with minimal sacrifices. It is even possible to fit SSI EEB (12" x 13") extended ATX motherboards in the GD07 despite maintaining an exterior dimension similar to SilverStone’s previous generation full-size HTPC cases.

With a wealth of lessons learned from building the best performing tower cases in the last several years, SilverStone engineers upgraded GD07’s cooling performance tremendously with up to four 120mm fan options. And to make sure owners can easily maintain their cases' cooling ability over time with the lowest noise possible, custom designed removable filters surround the case for positive pressure to work effectively and quietly.

Built to hide the imperfection of I/O ports and the plethora of drives that may be installed in its four 5.25" drive bays, the GD07’s lockable aluminum front door is beautifully finished with hairline brush pattern to match other home theater components. For those looking to build a powerful home media sever with security features, this is the perfect case.

3 out of 5 eggsOld-school design, but versatile with a little modification

Pros: With minor modification, this can fit 10x 3.5" drives plus a few more SSDs. I'm using an ATX motherboard, with SAS RAID controller, video tuner/capture board and full length dual-slot graphics card, and 240mm radiator(mounted externally). I also added extra slot fans for the SAS controller and video tuner. It's all a bit noisy under load, so I run this in a closet.

Cons: Steel sheetmetal is thin and the case flexes even when not fully loaded. For hometheater application, thicker gauge metal can cut down on vibration and resonance, especially important when multiple hard drives are used.
The 5.25" half-height bays are obsolete and would be better used for additional 3.5" bays(which I modified as), or slimline 5.25"(Silverstone sells an adapter).

Other Thoughts: a bit expensive for a traditional horizontal "desktop" layout, with black cosmetics for "home theater" use.

5 out of 5 eggsOne Great Case

Pros: Well thought out . Built to last . Holds eatx+ m/b (see cons). Has all parts and screws that you'll ever need . Accepts big video card (as long as you don't need all 4 h/d (3 1/2") slots . Will accommodate a larger CPU cooler . No hard drive vibration detected with 4 7200 rpm hard drives installed and running (solid cage and attachment arrangement) . Good cooling with extra fan slots and multiple sizing . Power switch can be locked with faceplate along with muted power on LED brightness (blue , so not annoying)

Cons: My m/b (990fxa ud7) has the 90° data connectors on back side of board. With the full size fans installed , cannot use them . Have to use smaller fans . Another 1/4"-3/8" would've made a big difference . But how many put such a large board in htpc ?
Once you install CD/DVD drive(s) , the drive cage gets tricky (and heavy) to line up and install (no problem at all if this is first step , but a hard drive will fail eventually , and to remove , cage has to come out .. unless you only screw one side)

Other Thoughts: I put ALOT of components in this case . 4 h/d , DVD , fan controller, 5 1/4" backplane cage (holding 4 ssd) , eatx m/b , sea sonic x-series p/s , 8 1/2" long video card, raid card and 7 cooling fans (did not use those supplied , arctic fans only...very quiet) . The airflow keeps it all cool .
I left the inside 5 1/4" vertical drive slot open for some of the extra cabling (in a good spot to tuck the excess) . I am glad I did not need the slot...though it seems a cavernous case at first , it fills up quickly . Planning and patience is required if you want to fully utilize the case options .

5 out of 5 eggsSleeper kit

Pros: Most likely HTPC case to accommodate your hard core gear. Smooth look with front panel closed. Plenty of cooling.

Cons: Not designed to support water cooling* (more below). A bit tall, check dimensions of your shelves.

Other Thoughts: After deliberation this case gets the full five stars for being best in class for an HTPC that can house serious equipment. This comes with significant caveats though.

On the plus side it fit a Sapphire Radeon 7970 OC, power cables and all. The drive cage shroud drops down neatly over this 11.5" card with power cables coming out of the top and leaves a bit of room to spare above and plenty of room to the front. Awesome. I replaced another Silverstone case with this one. That was the biggest HTPC case available at the time (2008) and the only way I could get a 10.5" card into it was to perform surgery with a Dremel tool and a metal cutting blade.

The case looks great with the panel closed. Not so great with it open. The little locking mechanism works fine. Wouldn't stop a thief, but it should keep kiddies and puppies out.

There is room to install 4x120mm fans, 2 on the sides and 2 on the bottom as well as 2x80mm fans at the back. It looks like you can install 3x120mm fans in front but one space is actually blocked by the drive cage. If you have a weird configuration you can replace the 120mm fans with 80mm ones. Sadly I could not through any Tetris zen induced mysticism get a Corsair H60 water cooling radiator/fan installed inside this case with an Asus ROG Hero mobo installed. The fan could be mounted but the radiator would interfere with either the mobo or the cables or the drive cage. This is pretty much the smallest water cooler available so don't expect to get hydro easy. For my part I got out some tools and partially removed one of the grill grates on the side then ground the edges smooth. I routed the water lines outside of the case through this new aperture and mounted the 120mm fan/radiator for the water cooling block externally. Good night warranty. The radiator is on the fan which is on the case and points in drawing air over the radiator and into the case. Maybe a little counter-intuitive as this is warming the intake air, but the cpu reads 33C in the BIOS at idle which is sweet and chilly. The kit's manual actually recommends mounting the fan as an intake anyway so no worries.

There is room to drop in a bunch of drives. I went with 3 (2.5" hdd, 3.5" hdd, dvd 5.25"). Simple no trouble to install these. The 5.25" drive in the horizontal mount is only held in place by the plastic bracket. Feels a mite flaky. Doesn't move when spinning, but a little hand pressure can displace it easily. Need to double check that I didn't miss a securing mechanism but I don't think so. The vertical 5.25" drive slots can be screw secured, but vertical drives bite. You inevitably drop your precious, precious media to it's scratchy doom.

Front panel cable routing is done for you very neatly. Replaced all 120mm fans with high grade silenced ones and the build is dead quiet. It's lighter than expected.

Rtm! A long tricky build with sweet results on a glorious large screen tv. Screwdriver needed.

4 out of 5 eggsExcelent HTPC Case

Pros: Great Case lot of space to accommodate XTi mother board up to 4 hard drive Solid state drive

Cons: the only issue I have was with the pci slot specialy the one close to the LED connectors if you have a large video card and tv tuner you may have some challenge to accommodate is possible just have to use your imagination

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect HTPC

Pros: Awesome construction
Holds a lot of hard drives and the whole cage is removable.
Great air flow from bottom and side 120mm fans.
Nice front panel which covers all ports and BD drives.

Cons: None really! To name a few annoyances;

Noisy 1200 rpm fans ( I replaced with pwm OCZ fans).
Vertical drive slots ( I will use them for future HD expansion)
Ugly key hole in the front ( I wish it was on the side).
No fan shields inside to protect cables from hitting;

Other Thoughts: I used core i7 3770 with CPU cooler SilverStone Argon Series AR02 which is super easy to install and I hear no noise 2 feet away.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Case. I have this rackmounted

Pros: This case is amazing for the price. Silverstone never lets me down with their quality cases.

I built out a home server with this build. The best part that I like about this case is that after I'm done using this for my VM machines and networking studies it came be moved from my office rack into my living room and look great with my Yamaha RX-673 receiver. It's already acting as my music / DLNA server that streams to the receiver. Anybody in the house can also access the HDD's as a simple home NAS solution too.

Air flow is great. I only added 2 x 80's fan in the back to create the push & pull air flow through the case.

Cons: The ONLY con I can think of, is that if you get a large PSU AND add on the hot-swappable 3.5 bays, there is no room to mount a fan on the back of the Silverstone FP57B's. Like I said, that is really reaching for a con and most people will just mount the HDD's inside the case (plenty of room, believe there are 7 slots for HDD's and 2 internal slots for SSD's. I just wanted to have the option of having hot-swappable HDD's for the future in case I needed it.

Other Thoughts: Home DNLA Server/ VMWare Workstation 9.0

5 out of 5 eggsMedia Server Gaming HTPC

Pros: Very nice case if you want to have all your Media in one box. Front LED is Dim with door closed & can be completely blocked as if its off. Power button on the front door can be locked so it isn't functional if you have children. 3 120mm fans are pretty quiet & all are filtered. You can have up to 6 fans, 2 80mm & 4 120mm.

Some look at the vertical 5.25in drive bays & think Why???. Don't think optical, think external Hot-Swap 3.5in HDD. You can install 2 single drive hot-swap trays or a double 5.25in that will hold 3 HDD.

I intend to build another dedicated Media Server & will buy a second GD07 case for that. I am already out or HDD room on my HTPC (5 hdd 10TB) It will be simple C2D & integrated vid But RAID card & packed with HDD. Matching cases will also look nice in my entertainment center.

Cons: Beware of the Width of this case... It is slightly wider than the normal AV equipment platform & you need some side clearance for air intake & exhaust.

This is a BIG HTPC case but you still need to plan your parts selection. You can pack a Full Tower of parts into it but its not the easiest build.

Cable management could be hard with a normal PSU. Especially with Hot Swap trays in the vertical bays. However I used a Corsair Modular 750 watt & Made all my own cables So I have no Excess length to tuck or hide.

That also reminds me... there are no fan grills on the bottom 2 120mm fans. Install some to keep the cables from hitting the blades.

Everything does fit & you may need to take it apart & change the install order a couple times. But this is a "BIG" HTPC case...any other case will be smaller & even harder to build.

Other Thoughts: Don't be in a hurry to build this case. Make sure the parts fit before you buy.
HDD hot swap cage in the vertical 5.25 bays is limited in depth. I could not use a fan cooled tray type because my PSU is big.
CPU cooler height is limited... Consider a blow down style like Zalman or some of the Silverstone coolers.
Graphics Card; You can run a longer high-end card but you WILL loose some internal HDD space. I am running a PNY Gforce GTX 660 Ti & it is 9.75in long.

4 out of 5 eggsAlmost perfect case

Pros: Can hold a lot of drives for HTPC case. Isn't that heavy. Looks nice and has great airflow. Nice locking pull down front door.

Cons: Power supply should have been mounted on other side of mother board (you can see how it is now in pics). You will have to plug in your SATA cables to your mobo BEFORE you put in the drive cage, but that does depend on SATA port location on mobo

Other Thoughts: The cons are definitely do not outweigh the pros, though they seem like more. They are generally small issues that are a pain but can be worked around. All in all, this case houses a PC very nicely right in an entertainment center and helps the clutter.
