SilverStone Grandia Series GD07 HTPC Case Review

Manufacturer: SilverStone

Specifications and Packaging

Specifications

The SilverStone Grandia GD07 is a full-size HTPC enclosure that uses a conventional steel (SECC) chassis fitted with plastic trim pieces and a black anodized, brushed aluminum front door.  While it doesn’t have the same elegant hand-built feel of some of SilverStone’s high-end, all aluminum HTPC chassis, it still looks good from the front and the more traditional construction helps keep the cost reasonable. 

There are numerous air vent openings on all sides, top and bottom, except for the front panel. The GD07 comes with three 120mm intake fans and there are several options for adding additional fans if desired. Overall, the GD07 has excellent case cooling potential while still keeping noise under control.

These guys actually sit down and design a case. The side mounted fans are a fantastic idea. Maybe they should patent that like Apple patented the rectangle.
