SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel Grandia Series SST-GD08B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * Full ATX Motherboard
* Large Video Cards will work
* 2 Optical bays (but probably can't use one)
* Full ATX power supply
* up to 5 120mm Fans + 2 80mm fans (3 x 120 included)
* 2 x USB 3.0 front ports
* Power and Reset buttons
*Many possible storage configurations.

* Nice looking in a media rack

Cons: Instructions are inadequate when installing an optical drive (though I may be last person on planet to want to do this).

It wasn't clear that the eject button (pleastic and right angled rail with slider) had a slider element that you can align with the optical drive button. I actually removed one of the eject buttons entirely before discovering this. Clear instructions would be helpful here.

Con #2. Cable management. Get a modular power supply and don't connect cables you don't need (or yours will look like mine--I just stuffed the cables up in the drive cage at the end where 3 drives might otherwise go.

Other Thoughts: I am actually very happy with the case and was able to fit quite a bit in the box (with room for another SSD at least) despite my non-attempt at cable management in this case.
