The Grandia GD09 is a culmination of SilverStone’s decade-long experience in HTPC case design and manufacturing into a product that every PC enthusiast can enjoy. The incredible efficiency in which it utilizes all available space results in a case that is close in size externally to Micro-ATX based GD04 and GD05, yet capable of fitting most important full size standard components including wider ATX motherboards (SSI-CEB) such as ROG or other gaming-centric models. All drive cages have been designed similarly to those from the popular ML03 case to provide maximum flexibility in drive configuration without the need for additional adapters. For cooling, all positive pressure and smooth airflow designs were retained from previous Grandia models while improvements were made to filter access for even easier maintenance. With the GD09, there has never been a more attractively sized HTPC case that is as capable and user-friendly. So whether one is looking to build an affordable or a powerful PC, this case can definitely satisfy both ends of the requirement.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome HTPC case for the money. Performs as well as an antec900 or better

Pros: excellent cooling (dont foregt the extra fans 2x 120's and 2 80's)
also feature a top rear expansion slot for expansion slot cooler above expansion cards
plenty of space left inside for air to move, also makes 138mm headroom for cpu cooler
fairly solid and well designed unit with lots of hardware to assemle your new htpc system
everything is pro about this case and as a gamer i m thinkin about designing one of these for my gamer rig. and just set the monitor right on top

Cons: deciding on an aftermerket cpu cooler can be troublesome. although the nt01 ro is recommended by manufacture.
no cons other than cpu cooler limitations but for htpc case its no con when your limit is 138mm height and unlimited width and depth (with the exception of ram being covered by most larger low profile aftermarket heatsinks)
also i was hopin to use the 4th side vent but its blocked by the psu. not really a con as you need psu. just a lowered expectation i guess

Other Thoughts: got the crosshair III formula mobo with 965be @ 3.88ghz stock cooler for now, gtx260 maxcore 55 vga, with xfi card and 650w psu. all my big compontnets from antec 900 gamer rig fit in this case with slightly more room compared to the antec900.
upgaraded fans to all the usable slots now have a 2nd gaming rig/htpc bf4 runs on 43" smart led tv on low around 45-60 fps

3 out of 5 eggsCable Problems

Pros: This is a great basic case. It is rather small to fit a full ATX motherboard.

Cons: Silverstone has a basic cable problem. Their cables in cases are too long and power supplys are too short. I have made builds with both GD05B and GD09B and the cables are a good two feet long! This is not a happy development when they only have reach maybe 6 inches. I have one of their power supplies that is only good for door stop. A couple of the cables would not reach where they had to go.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect case for what I needed

Pros: Great layout

Cheap

Cons: Could be more sturdy

Other Thoughts: This case has worked out perfect! I can't believe it but I was able to fit a Corsair H100i GTX to cool my i7 5930K! Couldn't be happier thanks Silverstone!

2 out of 5 eggsan OK Case, Good build but strange limitations

Pros: The good things about this HTPC case is that it will fit a full length Video Card, and Full Size power supply, and a full ATX Motherboard. It also has 3 120mm fan openings, and good build construction and OK looks. The power supply mount is reversible, which means you can either vent to the case or route both intake and outflow to outside the case. A nice option. Bulit in Air Filters on both sides give more air options.

Cons: most of the key components are stuffed in one half, the motherboard, Optical bay, 2 hard drive bays, etc. The only thing that sits in the other half is the power supply, so one half is cramped, the other half has vast amounts of empty space. Strangely my Antec Aria (10 yr old mATX case) holds 3x 3.5 hard drives in almost half the size, where this case only holds 2. Also only one fan mount could support a 120mm radiator, but its too far for a stock radiator kit. You either have do a custom radiator or like I did, use a duct. The space for the CPU Cooler if you use air cooling is fairly small. Also, the front isn't styled at all, just black brushed plastic, and its huge, I only have about 3/8 of inch on both sides for ventilation in my theater cabinet. No fan mount in the hood makes its size more of an issue. If you use a full size video card it runs down the middle and could impede air flow. There are only 2 full 3.5 HD slots, and no dedicated 2.5 slots, which is a strange omission in this day and age. like another poster, only one of my front USB 3.0 slots works.

Other Thoughts: Although its 10 years newer than my Antec Aria (PWR supply died and its unique to that case) this is still behind the Aria in many strange ways. Its not great looking, just OK, its huge but not well organized, and lacks many essentials. In small case Id understand, in a refrigerator box its very strange. There is a shortage of good HTPC cases however, most are either too small mITX or too big, like this one.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat option for horizontal ATX

Pros: Fits full ATX board, long video cards. Great airflow and cooling ability. Lots of drive mounting options. The instructions for working with the case are rather detailed yet easy to understand. Perfect size for an entertainment rack, though that's not what I'm using it for. Could fit at least 5 SSD's + optical in this case with a couple of double-up brackets

Cons: Front panel USB 3.0 ports weren't usable for me. It uses two cables that are too think and long for the case. The plugs on mine wouldn't fit most USB plugs that I tried, and when I did find something that fit, only one of the ports worked. My mobo has a USB 3.0 expansion card with only a single cable that I used instead. Removed the front panel connectors completely and covered with black tape.
Using an optical drive with this case meant getting a new CPU cooler, as my Silverstone AR03 cooler wouldn't fit cleanly, despite the drive being a shorty and using right angle plugs.
A couple of the drive mounting options for SSD's put them in tough spots to chain power connections with other drives, but that's part of squeezing a lot into a tight space.
The lousy front USB ports is the main reason for docking an egg.

Other Thoughts: Got this to be able to use an optical drive in a horizontal case. Not too many options that allow for a full ATX mobo and big video card. I was able to use existing components for everything except CPU cooling, which wasn't too shocking. Everything ended up being a good fit, with plenty of airflow, but it took several re-do's.
My parts:
ASRock 990fx Extreme4 mobo; AMD FX-8320 CPU; Silverstone NT01-PRO CPU cooler; 4 x 8GB GSkill RipJaws DRAM; FSP Group AURUM 92+ Series 650W PLUS PLATINUM Active PFC PSU; Sapphire Dual-X R9 280 video card; 3 x Cougar Vortex 120mm fans; 3 x SilentX 80mm fans; 3 x SSD's; LG WH10LS30 BluRay burner.
This case was actually pretty easy to work with, much like a bench case, and I had to take things apart several times in the first 2 weeks to get the CPU cooling situation settled. My video card is rather long, over 10", and it essentially divides the case in half in terms of airflow. However, even though the card has two side mounted PCI-E power connectors, I was able to plug in the PSU connectors and still close the case! I nevertheless bought a couple of 90 degree adapters for those connections, which made taking the card in & out much easier and helped cable routing. The 8 pin CPU power mobo connector was a long reach and tight squeeze with the cooler, so I had to make sure to have it plugged in early in the process. The optical drive bay sits over the 24 pin mobo connector, which makes putting a drive on the underside of the bracket tough, but at least there is plenty of clearance for the DRAM. I was a little disappointed not to be able to use my existing Silverstone AR03 92mm CPU cooler with the optical drive, but was pleasantly surprised that the NT01-Pro cooler fit my mobo perfectly and is cooling as good, if not better, than the AR03 despite the smaller fans.
If I were using this case to build a system from scratch, I'd get slim profile 120mm fans for the side intakes, and slim 80mm fans for the rear exhaust if possible. I'd also use only SSD drives and put them in a "two-fer" bracket at the front of the case. A fully modular PSU is also recommended, though I didn't have any problem with mine blocking the intake fan. Flexible sata cables, a few with right angle connections, would also be a good idea. You may end up using some molex-to-sata adapters to make things fit, like I did.
The front panel USB 3.0 cables are ridiculously long and thick. No idea why there are two cables for the single plug, and the mobo one I replaced it with only has a single cable for two ports. I use HDMI audio, so I didn't need the front audio ports. I removed that whole bracket, freeing up a lot of space inside the case at the price of occasional convenience.
Other reviewers have noted the cheap paint job on the metal top panel, aka "orange peel". That is indeed the condition of the paint on this case. I have mine on the top shelf of a ventilated closet, so the appearance isn't a big deal. It might look cheap to y

5 out of 5 eggsJust about perfect

Pros: Sleek design fits in my media space next to a surround sound receiver and looks right at home. So well done unless I point it out it's a computer no one else has noticed. Well constructed and laid out.

Cons: None, really the case did everything I needed and wanted it to do.

Other Thoughts: Not a con but more advice to be careful when fitting the Usb 3.0 cable to the motherboard. Probably more to do with my poor eye sight more then anything else but I bent a few pins trying to seat it. straightened out the pins and seated it back in Viola !!! front usb 3.0 The rest smooth as butter.

5 out of 5 eggsGood little htpc case

Pros: Small size, plenty of room. Looks nice. Fits all the parts nicely and keeps everything cool.

Cons: Although it has plenty of room, you need to tear the box apart to fit everything in. Only comes with 1 fan and no I/o back plate. Nothing worth docking eggs for.

Other Thoughts: Matches most tech components. USB 3.0 front cables, so if your mobo doesn't have 3.0 inputs, you will need an adapter.

4 out of 5 eggsNice HTPC ATX case, with caveats

Pros: Not many ATX HTPC cases to choose from, decent cable management options, looks good in the entertainment center, good airflow

Cons: Poor paint job (orange peel, although the front panel looks fine and that's all I see), limited expansion card height, no card reader/external 3.5" bay, OOD cage awkwardly positioned over motherboard, loose front USB 3 connector

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a nice ATX HTPC case for the entertainment center. I had been using a straight-up tower, but that was bulky and ugly. This case fit nicely with the aesthetics of my receiver which it neighbors.

Ran into some issues with the build. I had a passively-cool graphics card with an offset heatsink that made it too tall to fit in this case. I swapped out with an aftermarket fanned cooler. I guess that was my fault for not checking clearances beforehand. Also, the build itself requires a bit of pre-planning, mostly due to the OOD cage covering the RAM slots and other connectors on my motherboard. I had to pull the cage out on several occasions before I got everything right. I didn't have any trouble routing wiring where I wanted to.

After getting everything set up, the main issue I keep running into is if the case gets jostled at all, the front USB 3 connector will disconnect from the mobo. Could be caused by the mobo, the connector, or both, but I didn't have this problem at all with my tower case. Also, the noise from my stock CPU cooler seems more amplified now, but aftermarket coolers are limited to the horizontal style because the OOD cage's proximity to the CPU. Haven't settled on what I want to get since the vertical coolers typically have the better reviews.

Still on the fence on whether I want to disconnect the front LEDs or not. They are exceptionally bright when watching a movie after dark.
