    Has two pieces, they fit perfectly on a shelf in a rack. :)

    The one with the biggest disadvantage in my mind is the openable font for the CD / DVD / BD devices. A gap folds down when the sled hits it. Looks nice but it can be a real pill to get the player in exactly the right place for it to work. I'd much rather have a regular 5.25 "opening.

    On one of my drawers the power button unleashed and went into the box. It had to put it back, but a little box quality right there I might like.

    They could make more holes for 2.5 "disk. There is room for it, but only in a few specific places.

    Otherwise, I like the box, high quality quality, everything is done with a screwdriver, good valve lining, some sound insulation for disk and vibration dampening material for lid etc.

    Was bought for a HTPC build and it works fine.
    The entire chassis is metal where the front is in stylish brushed aluminum. Provides a solid impression and feeling of quality is high.

    It comes with 3 x 120mm fans, of course, silent fans in true Silverstone spirit. To build up the computer was too easy, but if you want a neat wiring applies it to install the power supply first and plan out where each cable to be, that way you can hide some cables during the actual motherboard. If you want to make it easy for themselves so there is a lot of room for cables in the rack for hard drives and optical drive. The problem then is that these cables are located directly on the fans that suck air into the chassis.

    I had a Silverstone Temjin TB05 past and expected nothing but the same quality in the chassis and this is a little bit better I must say. No plastic parts, everything is made of metal and very smart built.

    Depending on how you choose to invest their hard drives (3.5 ") of the hard drive rack will easily fit a full-size video card. The only limitation I've had to do is the CPU cooler where it is the height that is limited to ~ 135mm, calculated from the installed CPU and whether to have a few mm benefit from the lower lid / cap.

    Setup I run with are
    Motherboard: ASUS X99 Deluxe
    Graphics Card: ASUS GeForce 970 STRIX
    Processor: i7 5280K
    RAM: Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2x8GB
    SSD: 250GB Samsung 840 EVO
    Hard Drives: 4x WD 1TB
    CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U9B SE
    Fans: 3x 120mm Silverstone (included) + 2x Noctua NF-S12A (120mm)
    Power supply: EVGA Supernova G2 750W

    The computer is really quiet, the only sound sometimes is when a HDD runs.
    Is a lot of space left if you want to receive further HDD / SSD, optical drive (Blu-ray player / DVD / CD). If you want to, you can also install additional 2x 80mm fans at the rear of the chassis.

    POSITIVELY
    -Gediget Chassis
    -Good And quiet supplied fans
    -Good Manual that deals with everything there oang chassis
    -Stilren, Fits perfectly on the TV stand next to the amplifier.
    -Plenty Of room to share
    -Dimbar LED on the front panel (for HDD and ON / OFF indicator)

    NEGATIVE
    -Noggrann Planning of the cables before the motherboard goes in (assuming you care about this)
    -Pretty Crowded for cables between the hard drive that is opposite to the power supply, cables fit but crowded.
    -No Water cooling radiators / kit (Silverstone Tundra TD03, Corsair Hydro H110, Antec Kuhler) fit to the radiator and fans should sit where the ventilation holes are for the fans but then fans and radiator in the motherboard and can not place. Picks, however, the hard drive rack and just want a SSD as a system disk and run with eg NAS solution to storage to get the place pretty easily.

    Conclusion:
    A good chassis that requires a lot of thought before embarking on a neat cable routing. There is plenty of room for miscellaneous parts and they supplied fans are silent.
    Very happy with the choice of chassis so far.
    Highly recommended

    Very good for HTPC build. Works with Noctua C14 radiator. Keep in mind that might add fan control and replacing chassis fans, if you want a quiet pc.
