Pros: It installed easily, works great, and was able to overclock to around 4.3 ghz using a low profile air based cooler.
Other Thoughts: I might dial it back a bit as it gets hot at that speed but no complaints so far.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Provides the power I need to power my GTX 770 video card and Intel 4670K processor
Cons: I should have bought the modular power supply to fit in my tiny HTPC case. This has so many wires it took up a quarter of the case!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SILVERSTONE Grandia Series GD05B-USB3.0 Aluminum / 0.8mm SECC micro-ATX / Mini-DTX / Mini-ITX MB, 1x5.25", 2x3.5"+1x2.5"HDD or 1x3.5"+2x2.5"HDD, 3x120mm golf bladed fan, 11" expansion card capable HTPC Case with 2X USB3.0 ports (Black)
Pros: The case is solidly built and looks great in my A/V equipment rack. The fans are silent and work well. Installation went as easy as it could for a compact case
Cons: I had purchased a Corsair H50 water cooler to use in this case but due to the very limited space between the MB and the fans, I had to send it back and get an air based cooling solution. Also, my Gigabyte GTX 770 barely fit in the case vertically. While it was longer than recommended at 11.5", it's ton fin (which appears pointless) touches the top of the case. Lastly, only 3 out of the 4 screws in my power supply aligned with the holes on the back. No eggs docked due to these all possibly being component issues and not the fault of Silverstone.
Other Thoughts: System specs in case anyone else is curious about what I was able to cram in the case:
Gigabyte GA-87MX -D3H Micro ATX Mobo
Intel 4670K Processor
GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-2GD GeForce GTX 770 Video Card
CORSAIR TX750 V2 750W Power Supply
Crucial Ballistix 240-Pin DDR3 RAM (2X 8GB)
Samsung Evo 840 250GB SSD
ZALMAN CNPS8900 Quiet 110mm CPU fan
All HDD storage located in a file server, so no magnetic drive in the case.
