New Micro-ATX case from Silverstone: PS07

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
It looks like Silverstone is on a roll as far as new SFF cases go.

http://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=314&area=

It seems they have taken a modified TJ08e chassis and given it a more affordable front panel. I'm really liking the looks of it.

I didn't know that silverstone has so many SSF cases, thanks for the link.

At first I didn't know what to make of the PS07. I initially was surprised they added those lines...now I actually really like it. Silverstone took a risk with that design, but I think they've got something here.

For some reason it reminds of some old school server case...not sure why.

Grandestfail9190,

Yes, that's exactly what I'm talking about! It reminds me of some of the cases from back in the day. (I'm old by the way )

Meh. Cooling and cable management will be questionable. The CPU cooler supporter is unnecessary. For its size, it doesn't look like it will do anything particularly well. The only real positive for me is the removable HDD cage; there should be enough room for a 240 radiator in there. I'm still waiting for someone to design their storage cage in two parts, upper and lower, that are independently removable while leaving a low-profile mounting bracket for a HDD and SDD on the bottom (a hybrid of the Cubitek Mini Tank and Lian Li AO4).

Flip the PSU to the bottom, add two 120mm fan mount slots to the top, and adjust the storage bay a little and they'd have a winner - it would be smaller than the AO4, have better cooling, and can better accommodate watercooling setups. Until then... meh.

It isn't possible to do that and retain the same size. The optical drive bays and motherboard would interfere. And why would cooling be questionable. The psu has its own channel and it has two front fans pushing the air through the bottom chamber.

Yea, I garuntee the cooling is great in that case. And my first thought when I saw the case was to put a 240 up front. :-D

It's a TJ08-e just made cheaper. Cooling will be fine, as will cable management. Heatsink support is necessary if you have a big air cooler, and move your rig a lot.
You could fit one optical and one hard-drive up top by the PSU (with an adapter) and an SSD down the bottom, and have no HDD bays there at all.
