SilverStone's Booth

We checked out SilverStone's booth to find out what new chassis will be making their mark in the market soon.

This is the Raven 3, which has an unique mounting system where the rear I/O panel is actually found at the top, making it easy to install and connect ports. According to SilverStone is less deep than the 2nd version while still accommodating extended ATX boards and long graphics cards of 13-inch and more.

Here are the cables neatly organized out of necessity, more than choice.

The TJ08-E comes with an aluminum front and steel body. It uses a large 180mm fan with removable filters. USB 3.0 ports are also found at the front panel.

The internals of the TJ08-E. The PSU is isolated from the rest in its shroud and the chassis is deep enough to fit long graphics cards in a dual-GPU configuration.

The SG08 supports mini-ITX boards and while it seems like a small form factor chassis, it will surprise you with what it can hold.

For instance, one can install a full sized graphics card within.

The PS06 has a plastic and mesh front panel along with a steel frame. It has blue trimmings that break the monotony of SilverStone's usual blacks.

This monster of a chassis is the TJ12 and it can support up to six graphics cards, not that we can imagine such a scenario that is. It has a similar mounting system as the Raven with the expansion cards 'hanging' from the chassis.

A mainstream HTPC enclosure, the Grandia GD08 has two external 5.25-inch drive bays and 8 internal 3.5-inch drives. Up to seven system fans can be installed for cooling.
