Fix for random static on PCM audio 3/7/2013 9:25:16 AM

Pros: Excellent case for HTPC. It has been going strong for about 1 1/2 years now. I have it mounted inside a well ventilated cabinet.

Cons: An extra led for the hard drive would be nice.

Overall Review: I fought random static noise on PCM stereo audio for months. 5.1 audio was perfect. I removed the three fan screens and the PCM stereo audio noise has not reoccurred. Is it possible that the plastic fan screens produced air with a static charge that affected some component on my Asrock H67M motherboard? I'm not sure but am very happy that it no longer exists.

Pros: Great case for an HTPC. fits perfectly in my cabinet. runs cool and quiet. The blue LED doesn't bother me as its behind dark tinted glass.

Cons: Wish I could use it as a tower instead of a desktop. Might have to engineer something so I can use it that way.

I love this case 7/16/2012 7:40:07 PM

Comments: I bought this case to make a media center pc... I didn't want anything loud because it'd be right with my entertainment system. After having it over a year I opened it up to install new usb 3.0 front panel daughter card and was amazed there was no dust. the fans are whisper quiet and they have a microscreen that did a great job of keeping it clean. all the power connectors I need are there.... easy to assemble.. I have had a great experience with silverstone.

Great quiet HTPC case 7/3/2012 11:41:45 PM

Pros: Three very quiet fans, solid build, rubber grommets, looks good in my cabinet.

Cons: No thumb screws or quick releases, no room for aftermarket CPU fan, no USB 3 ports

Overall Review: In my experience HTPC cases are a little behind enthusiast cases, and they often lack convenience features like thumb screws and quick release mounts. That is true of this case. This case looks great and feels solid. I am particularly impressed by how quiet the fans are. Silverstone also added rubber grommets to reduce vibration between metal parts. The optical drive mounts over the CPU, so there is no room for an aftermarket CPU fan unless you omit the optical drive and the mounting bracket. That could easily be done. Silverstone focused on what was important leaving room for minor improvements. All in all I am very happy with this case, and I highly recommend it.

No USB 3.0 6/12/2012 2:55:16 PM

Comments: Update to my last review. I have been in contact with Silverstone and the reply to Crispux was a flat out lie. This case does not come with USB 3.0 on the front panel and never will. The model number will be changed to GD05B-USB3.0 and that case will be priced higher and will come with 3.0 for the front panel. Of course Silverstone is happy to now take more of my money so I can swap out the 2.0 to 3.0 on my own, which will take 30 second and is two screws, but won't offer to make things right after I based my purchasing decision on the reply from them to Crispux's post below...Lame!...

Great HTPC case, but not perfect 5/18/2012 6:57:09 PM

Pros: For an HTPC case, fairly roomy. Easy to take apart and install components. Frustration is low with this case. Comes with 3, nice 120mm golf-ball dimpled fans that run quietly and has dust filters to keep dust off internal components. Solid build. Should fit nicely into most TV cabinets/entertainment centers both on dimensions and looks. Brushed aluminum front gives it a nice look.

Cons: Although came with 3 system fans, only comes with one system fan header so that all three can't be controlled by your motherboard. Has room for a couple of rear 80mm outake fans, but must be purchased separately. Doesn't come with PC speaker connectors, but perhaps this is a motherboard or other peripheral issue. Front panel is not USB 3.0 out of the box, but another part can be purchased separately. This isn't a huge deal though as I wouldn't say that USB 3.0 is exactly mainstream yet. For my modular power supply, I didn't want to install it upside down because it is fanless, and I had to remove the left 120mm fan to fit the powersupply in, and then had to reattach it. Spacing can be a bit tight, and the cable tie downs it came with are worthless. Use mini cable ties instead.

Overall Review: Overall, I very nice case that I would easily and highly recommend to a friend, but because of a lack of system fan headers, no 80mm fans, and having to purchase USB 3.0 parts separately, along with having to remove a fan to install the powersupply unless I was going to do it upside down, the review comes in at 4 eggs, not 5. But if it makes anyone feel anybetter, it's more like a 4.5 and I would round up and not down.
