Thoughts on Silverstone PS06b?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I was looking around for unique cases for my next case upgrade and I stumble across the Silverstone PS06, which seems to be a relatively new sharp looking spacious case from SS that features a huge top panel 180mm intake fan. I looked at a few reviews and to my surprise most of them say it's a good case.. but almost none of them mention anything specific about the cooling of the case except this one..

"In our temperature testing, we pitted the PS06 against our brand new TJ11 and our older TJ09. The end result was that both the TJ11 and TJ09 led the PS06 as far as cooling capability. The TJ11 and TJ09 ended up cooling the north and south bridges to about the same temperature, whereas the PS06 averaged about 1-2C higher on each test. Running every setting in BIOS on default, we saw temps just a little higher on the PS06. Although, we need to keep everything in consideration, such as the fact that the PS06 is selling for only around $100, and the two other cases go for around $250 (TJ09) and $600 (TJ11). So, with that said, only being a few degrees Celsius higher than they are is not a bad showing in the slightest."

Does anyone have any idea if the cooling of this case is any good? I really like the very convenient (easily removable) dust filters in this case but sadly I can't find much info on the cooling aspects of it. Cheers!

I really like the way the exterior case looks. The interior doesn't look to special. As far as cooling it looks like it only has 2 fan mounts, one 120mm and one 180mm. Most cases in that price range would have more mounts but more fans doesn't really mean better cooling. The review looks good, cases that are $100+ more than them only perform slightly better cooling wise. Sounds good to me.

Oh this case comes with the 120mm at the front and 180mm on top, both intake with easily removable filters, but there is room for another 120mm at the back and another 120mm at the bottom also with an easily removable filter.

I kinda like it coz it looks special and also has a special 180mm intake fan on top which I haven't seen in any other case, but I'm just not sure if the cooling is good enough (I know the SS 180mm fan is awesome from other reviews but I can't find enough reviews to make sure if the cooling of this case is decent or not..)

The other unique case I like so far is the SS Raven rv03 but that one is almost at the top of my budget so I'm open to other options.

My case requirements are:
1) must have easily removable filters for all intake fans
2) would prefer cases that only need 1 or 2 large fans for decent cooling (slightly less noise and also easier & faster for my weekly case & desk cleaning redface.gif) instead of needing to use lots of small fans for cooling
3) should have a unique design if possible tongue.gif
4) cost around or less than the SS Raven RV03
