The Grandia GD04 is an incredible product that combines years of SilverStone expertise in SFF (Small form factor) and HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) chassis design. It has a beautifully proportioned exterior and powerful thermal capability that rivals the best tower chassis. From the front, the GD04 is shaped similarly to most home theater components, but the depth was reduced to a mere 323mm. This overall size of 21.5 liters in volume actually makes the case one liter smaller than SilverStone’s own Micro-ATX Sugo cases! Even though GD04’s diminutive size allows it to easily integrate into any home theater cabinet, it can still accommodate an impressive list of standard components such as 5.25” optical drive, two 3.5” hard drives, a 2.5” SSD, a standard ATX power supply, and two high-end graphics cards up to 10.5 inches. Cooling duty in the GD04 is handled by three filtered 120mm fans designed with the same positive air pressure as the Fortress FT01, this enables class-leading cooling efficiency, reduced dust buildup, and silent operation. To make installation simpler, there is even enough space for cable management to be easily accomplished without the need for short cabled or modular power supply. Coupled with special attention given to the order of installation, any user can quickly assemble or upgrade the GD04 and devote more time to enjoying a personalized digital life with an HTPC.

The front panel is gorgeous, very thick aluminum, very well anodized. The rest of the case is okay, but not amazing - there are some quality control issues with paint coverage (unequal on the two halves of the top cover, overspray inside, ect), but they aren't dealbreakers to me.
This is a great case. Dont expect to be able to pack in a lot of hard drives. I have 1 hard drive in now, and I would be hard pressed to stick a second in there unless i started chopping excess leads off my new Corsair Power supply. A modular powersupply may be better option if going with multiple hard drives , just make sure to cross check the dimensions of one your going to buy first. This case does have some cable management features built in but there is so little room that you better be an absolute neat freak with your cable dressing to keep airflow in check. I have an 8800GT dual slot card in right now and no heat issues. Don't get me wrong, these aren't complaints regarding size. I knew this case was shallow , it was my reason for buying it. I do have to say that I was quite surprised and how packed and compressed everything is in there though. Its the only case that would fit in my new home entertainment unit. I am very happy with this case. It has excellent build quality I expect from silverstone. ALSO 1 added little bonus I discovered! Its hard to tell because its kind of camoflauged against all the other steel parts of the case in the pics on NCIX here, but there is actually an expansion slot bracket placed horizontally above the PSU for some mother boards that come with onboard devices that have a header on the motherboard and require a bracket to placed in your cases frame occupying a pci slot... ie a serial port or in my situation an S/PDIF ports.
