Closer look at the outside

Just like the external the interior is also black. Besides the color the thing that stands out about the interior is the space. Or the lack of. When dealing with ITX enclosures spacing is always handicapped but this is just a small issue for those looking to build such a system.

Removing the one piece outer shell the first thing you are greeted by is a huge 180mm AP181 cooling fan. The fan rotates between 700 and 1200 PM. The fan is covered by a dust filter. And within this range the noise level reaches 18 to 34 dBA. This fan along with the other aspects of the case helps in positive pressure keeping most of the interior cool.

Removing the fan gives you full access to the motherboard tray which the MB stand-offs are already installed for your convenience.

Forward of the MB tray is everything else that makes up a PC case. The top layer is the optical drive tray. Remember this case only supports slim drive which Silverstone offers a couple.

Removing the optical drive tray you have access to the HDD cage. This simple small bay can house a total of one 3.5” HDD and two smaller 2.5” drives. Yellow rubber grommets help to keep vibration at a minimum when the system is fully built.

We removed the power supply from the case to give you a better view. The PSU is a single 12v rail unit providing 600 watts. Silverstone advertise the unit as enough to power cards as big as the Nvidia GTX 580. The cables of the PSU are all sleeved but are pretty long for the case. And to power the GPU two 6/2 PCIe power plugs are attached.
