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.
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!
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..
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.
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.
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 (http://ksstudios.com/SilverStoneGD05.html) 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.
