The Grandia GD05 is a follow-up of the incredible GD04 as a chassis that combines years of SilverStone expertise in small form factor and Home Theater Personal Computer (HTPC) designs. It has the same beautifully proportioned exterior and powerful thermal capability that rivals the best tower chassis. However, the front panel of the GD05 was designed to be more flexible so that its 325mm depth can be utilized in more places than just home theaters. Even though GD05's diminutive size allows it to easily integrate into any home theater cabinet, it can still accommodate an impressive list of standard components such as a 5.25in. device, two 3.5in. hard drives, a 2.5in. SSD, a standard ATX power supply, and two high-end graphics cards up to 11in. long. Cooling duty in the GD05 is handled by three filtered 120mm fans designed with the same positive air pressure to enable class-leading cooling efficiency, reduced dust buildup, and silent operation. To make installation simpler, there is even enough space for cable management to be easily accomplished without the need for short-cabled or modular power supply. Coupled with special attention given to the order of installation, any user can quickly assemble or upgrade the GD05 with a small and powerful PC system.

5 out of 5 eggsReally Like it

Pros: The case is made of a really nice looking metal. And, the ventilation setup is pretty good (the GPU lines up perfectly with the top air holes.) When you put everything in place, it is very well packed, but that means that if you want to change anything, you have to take the whole system apart.
The front of the case is really sleek, the pictures don't do it justice.

Cons: The last PCI slot of a micro-ATX board juts right against the power supply. That means that if you have a second video card in your fourth slot, it has to be one slot shallow. The actual length of the expansion cards can't be super long, the description says 11 inches will fit, but a lot of the longer video cards are more than 12 inches long (So I don't risk it by buying those ones).

Other Thoughts: i was afraid I would scratch the faceplate trying to put USB plugs into the front, but the aluminum hasn't scratched yet.

4 out of 5 eggsGD05B

Pros: I have owned this case for about 3 years so I thought I would do a review. Great case, good looking, same size as my Yamaha RX-V571 AVR so it goes well with my system. Plenty of room. I have a mini ATX board. 2X 4Tb for movies and a 120Gb SSD for the system. A fan controller slows the 3 120mm fans down so its completely silent. My cooler is a Silverstone NT-06 Pro its big and it fits !!! Silent. This case is rock solid. Well built, heavy and looks awesome next to my AVR. Its just a HTPC and APU so no GPU but will hold a large one.

Cons: Its a pain in the *%@ to clean the fan filters. Have to take it completely apart to clean, About once a year. I guess you could put the filters on the out side but it would look tacky. There is a raised bump in the case that will make the filters look trashy if located on the outside. That's the only negative

Other Thoughts: For $100 its a great case. One of my favorite in the house and I've had many. The finish is strong and resists scratches. It looks as good today as it did 3 years ago

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice case

Pros: Very well designed entertainment case that has an entertainment system look and feel. Compact with plenty of room for components.

Cons: Paint is a bit cheap, I'm used to Corsair's powder coating but this stuff flakes easy so take extra care with it.
Hard drive mounts were less than to be desired, I was missing the screws for the 2.5" drive, but I was able to make it work.

Other Thoughts: This should fit most (but probably not all) long video cards. I used an Asus Maximus Impact VII for the build which ended up being perfect. Install the optical drive after you're done with everything.. should you have to make a change, the two screws that secure the mount on the right side are a major pain.

1 out of 5 eggsVERY Disappointed

Pros: Looks nice - too bad I am unable to use it as it is advertised.

Cons: The title sums the below up. I had ordered this case for my HTPC build and the bottom line is that it is incapable of fitting full length graphics cards, not on length but in depth - DESPITE it being advertised as supporting expansion cards up to 11 inches long. My GTX 780 will not fit in the case with the case cover on as the side mounted power connectors (which are common on many modern graphics card – nothing new) interfere with the top case cover and does not allow it to close. See the 22 May 2013 review on Newegg’s site. Had I known this, I would not have ordered the case...period. No amount of “Bending” nor should anyone need to buy “Extension Cables” which will not fit anyway as stated by Silverstone who smartly retorted to the above review, will work as the plastic connecters at the end of the power leads are at the top of the case themselves. Pushing down puts an EXTREME amount of stress on the graphics card and thus the motherboard and I was still not able to make the case cover close as this case needs to be an inch taller to support side-mounted power connectors on modern graphics cards. The fact that it is advertised to support expansion cards up to 11 inches and does not clarify the clearance issue with the top of the case is tantamount to false-advertising.

What a shame too as I like the case’s style and look. I had wasted most of the 4th of July putting together this case with the hopes of streaming movies for my family that evening. Time I will never get back. Furthermore, I am not pleased at having to spend over $50 between the return shipping and restocking fee. These charges SHOULD be waived for any product that does not perform as advertised…please Newegg - try it yourself and post us a video. This is something I will certainly take into consideration for future purchased from a loyal customer dating back years and many thousands of dollars. I was considering just holding onto the case for a future customer build, but it would just inflame me anytime I looked at it.

Other Thoughts: First ever case purchased from Silverstone and this was the last - for my lifetime. Fool me once – shame on you, fool me twice – shame on me. There will not be a second time.

4 out of 5 eggsVersatile HTPC Case

Pros: - Fits 2 3.5" HDD and an optical drive, and then some
- Form factor, although a little large, blends nicely with AV components
- Front USB 3.0 ports

Cons: - No thumb screws for the case lid. Poor quality screws instead.
- No internal speaker for bios beeps
- Not ideal for a fanless PSU
- Case fans must be removed to clean dust screens
- The silverstone logo on the front could be nicer

Other Thoughts: My HTPC build:
- Asus Z97M-PLUS (with M.2 support)
- Intel i7 4790S (65W with 4600 graphics)
- 250Gb Crucial MX200 M.2 SSD (takes up no room)
- LG WH16NS40 bluray player (great color match)
- NT01-Pro fanless cooler (made for this case)
- 2 seagate 3.5" HDDs (in the HDD mount)
- Kingston HyperX FURY 2x8GB 1866MHz DDR3 RAM
- Seasonic SS-660XP2 PSU (semi-fanless)

My goal was to build a multi-purpose HTPC that ran cool and quiet and this case was perfect for me.

The PSU needs to be mounted upside down to take advantage of the vent on the bottom of the case. This, plus the fact that the HDD mount blocks airflow from the top of the PSU means that a fanless PSU is not ideal. Instead I used the SS-660XP2 because it can be mounted upside down and the fan only comes on when needed.

You can fit a ton of drives in this case. If you choose a mobo with M.2 support you can use an M.2 SSD as your C: drive and put it right on the board, taking up virtually no room in the case. Then the HDD mount supports two more 3.5" drives and the 5.25" bay holds an optical drive. If you have empty PCI slots like me, you could even get an adapter to turn your empty slot into mount and fit one or more 2.5" HDDs in there too.

I looked at every micro ATX case on the market and chose this one because it looks sharp and accommodated everything I wanted to fit inside. I ended up not needing to use a PCI slot for a video card because the onboard 4600 graphics are more than sufficient to watch 1080p movies on my TV, but it's nice to know there's plenty of room in the case if I choose to add one in the future. Overall it's a great case.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Solid HTPC Case

Pros: Good looking
Plenty room
Good cooling

Cons: None of now

Other Thoughts: A lot of the negative reviews here are rather silly.

This case is designed for HTPC. Water cooler does not belong here. The large $300 video card does not belong here. HTPC does not need the large gaming card. This is not a gaming case.

This case is for a medium power, quiet HTPC set up. I have:
Asus F1F75-FM
AMD FM1 type GPU/CPU
Corsair 450W PS
Blue-Ray OD
Single SATA HD

My CPU fan is running at 1500 rpm and two original fans running at about 620 rpm. I do not hear the fan noise.

As for the HD LED. The comments are very silly. The HD LED is there. But in order not to have very bright LED light, the HD LED was not drilled. So it is power/HD combo LED. With the same LED, you can still see the HD activities. So this is not distracting with TV viewing. Some case LEDs are too bright for this purpose.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Zalman CNPS7000C cooler

Pros: I've had this case for my HTPC over a year and I finally came across a CPU cooler that works perfectly.

Zalman CNPS7000C

It lowered my CPU temps by 8 degrees Celsius over the stock AMD A6 cooler. It clears the RAM and yet is low enough that it doesn't block the DVD tray.

Also, at least for me, the Zalman CPU fan has been pretty much silent.

Cons: None for me as I knew what I was wanting to build.

1 out of 5 eggsWoW

Pros: Nice Case, well built

Cons: Would have given 5 stars if Silverstone had actually included the front audio and Usb 3.0 connectors to the case. I was taking apart the case to put in the motherboard. Comes time for the USB 3.0 connections ???? there missing. Now I have to contact them for the missing pieces. WoW. 1st time I have ever had that happened to me in the last 15 years of building pcs.

Other Thoughts: Great case for a HTPC.

3 out of 5 eggsBuy another case

Pros: The case is made of good materials, and has good thickness to the metal. It looks good on my entertainment center. It is really quiet.

Cons: Bellow average airflow. I clean the case once every two months and it is a real hassle. The case fans get really dusty and you have to disassemble the whole computer to clean them. Cleaning the case fans can take over an hour each time.

Other Thoughts: Look for a better engineered case
