Features    [ Edit | History ]

The Grandia GD05 is a follow-up of the incredible GD04 as a chassis that combines years of SilverStone expertise in SFF (Small form factor) and HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) designs. It has the same beautifully proportioned exterior and powerful thermal capability that rivals the best tower chassis. However, the front panel of the GD05 was designed to be more flexible so that its 325mm depth can be utilized in more places than just home theaters. Even though GD05'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" device, two 3.5" hard drives, a 2.5" SSD, a standard ATX power supply, and two high-end graphics cards up to 11 inches. Cooling duty in the GD05 is handled by three filtered 120mm fans designed with the same positive air pressure to enable 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 GD05 with a small and powerful PC system.

Excellent Cooling, Decent Looking, Brushed aluminium front
A bit too large, expensive
Overall not a bad case. I honestly did expect a little more considering how much money this is. Definitely nothing special in terms of construction... you get a nice brushed aluminium front but standard "white metal" internals.

Mine actually had a little rust in the motherboard tray area which I found a little surprising as this is supposed to be a high end HTPC case. It's also pretty large for an HTPC case, easily 2-3x the size of an average bluray player. I can't say I would buy it again but it does suit my purpose. Overall 3/5.

+ solid case
+ lots of cable storage space
+ matte (non-glossy) exterior
- some fan noise (default install)
Purchased as part of an HTPC build.

Included fans at default setups are not as quiet as they could be, but adjustments depending on the environment are almost always necessary. Will most likely replace the fans or lower the voltage shortly.

Construction build is sturdy - black, nice finish on the front plate. Good feel to the buttons (power, reset).

Lots of room inside the case for cable management, including in front of the power supply and under the internal 5.25 drive bay. Tabs scattered about the case in order assist in tying down cables. Research your choice for a CPU heatsink though, as you may experience clearance issues if a 5.25 drive is installed (a number of reviews online discuss this). Definitly go with a modular power supply. As with any mini or micro ATX build, plan your install and cable management...and make sure you have your zip-ties on-hand!

Price, Airflow, Quiet, Fits a good amount components for a htpc case!
Very nice case, great for Mini ITX builds, quiet and elegant! Easy to fit in a GTX 280, mini ITX mobo, SDD HDD, 3.5 HDD, Standard ATX PSU, and a COOLit watercooling kit with a bit of modifications (not using the 1X5.25in Optical drive slot to make room for Watercooling Radiator and 2x 120cm fans push pull config) Cable management is easy and organized, GREAT CASE!

Sturdy construction, adequate space, accepts 120mm fans, understated design, single muted LED doesn't distract
Included fans aren't silent at 12V or even 7V, lack of dvd cover
This is my second Silverstone HTPC case and once again the quality of the case, box and accessories is excellent. At this price I couldn't find a better case that would still fit (barely) into my AV rack while providing enough room for a full ATX power supply, full size video card and quiet cooling.
There is plenty of room for matx and itx boards and full size video cards though depending on cpu socket location, cpu cooler height and the length of your dvd drive you could run into trouble. For reference I have a Scythe Shuriken (little one) and although my dvd drive doesn't overhang the cooler it wouldn't matter if it did as the Shuriken is the perfect height to allow enough clearance. Also keeps temps down around 30-40C on a 65W Core 2 Duo and usually spins silently at 800-1200rpm. This is supposed to be a review of the Grandia GD05 though..
With some of the included zip ties you can make a decent cable management effort. It may not be the pretties but it keeps the cables low and out of the way allowing plenty of airflow.
Which brings me to the fans.. I've tried the included fans at 12V and 7V and neither is really silent enough for my ears.. I am a little surprised the SPCR review was so positive. It's my only complaint and the reason for one star deduction. Really only half a star as I pretty much expect to install higher quality fans in any case. At least with the GD05 you can use nice quiet 120mm fans.

-full hieght slots
-spare slot above psu
-three 120mm fans included
-nice finish
-fan filters
-middle rubber foot (pushed in the case)
-ceter of case was pushed up
-mobo standoffs are built into the case
-had to shim mobo with washers since the case was pushed in
-hard drive unit seems not too strong
-probly not enough rigidity to put a monitor ontop if using as desktop pc
Mainly bought it for htpc and it serves its purpose. The case has a rubber foot in the center, I assume the box may have been dropped because the case was pushed up where the rubber foot was in the center. This caused the mobo to wobble, I was able to push it back out slightly, but had to use some washers for shims so my mobo wouldn't bend too much. The other gripe is the mobo standoffs, I think 6 are integrated into the case, so if they got damaged you would be beat.
If silverstone took off that middle rubber foot to help prevent the mobo stand from getting pushed up(-1), and had stiffer bracing for the top (-1) and had all screw in standoffs (-1) they would have this case perfected.

- Solid
- Decent space to work
- No cover over DVD unit
This is a really nice case from Silverstone. It is sturdy and classy. The only thing missing with this case is somekind of a cover over the DVD unit to hide it. The older version had it.

Cheap, solidly built, 3 fans, LED light isn't too bright, quiet
A bit on the big side
Fantastic HTPC case. It's quite large, which also means that full height PCI cards can be installed. It's the only reasonably priced case I found that could hold three 120mm fans.

Experience: 2 Weeks
strong frame coupled with nice exterior; plenty of room for components, options for cable management, noise reduction design, good case ventilation even without all fans engaged
no provision for SFX power supplies
I used this to transfer an HTPC which was housed in a standard horizontal desktop case. The build is based on Foxconn G41S-K motherboard that is only 17 cm wide with PCI-E slot at the edge, so no problems with cables. Most other components were leftovers from previous builds, except for the Blu-Ray drive. Works fine so far, with only one case fan engaged and the stock processor cooler (on top of E2180). Recommended.

Experience: 3 Days
Solid, Sleek, 3 Case fans, Easy to install components
none so far
After doing a few weeks of research (more like a couple of months) i decided on the Grandia GD05 for my HTPC case. Every review I read said this was a solid unit, and that rings true ( The pictures here or anywhere else do not do this unit justice, the front face is beautiful (yeah I said that about a PC case) Install was a breeze (HDD install is a bit tricky using a 2.5" drive) lots of room for cabling.
My install (basic HTPC)
