GD07

 

Silverstonetek GD07 HTPC enclosure - Stylish HTPC case
 

GD07's front door is made of brushed aluminum, and it has power LED, power switch, Silverstone's logo and a lock. At the bottom edge of the front panel there is a roll for adjusting LED brightness.

Behind the door at the front panel there are two USB 3.0 connectors, audio connectors, power and reset switches and LEDs. There are also four 5.25" slots, which two are installed vertically and two horizontally at the front panel.

 

Behind

At the rear panel there are holes for two 80 mm fans, eight expansion card slots (one horizontally) and a slot for power supply. The case does not include any 80 mm fans, so you need to go and get them for yourself, if you want to improve the cooling performance.

 

Sides

At the right side of the case there are two 120 mm fan slots, although only one fan is included. In front of fan slots there's a dust filter, which is removed by sliding the filter towards the case's front panel.

The grills in front of fans are very open, so the air flow won't whoosh a lot.

Also in the left side of the case there is a dust filtered slot for 120 mm fan. The power supply is supposed to install the way that the PSU's fan can take the intake air through the fan hole. For some odd reason Silverstone has ended up mounting the filter in a different way than the filter at the right side of the case. The left side's filter is mounted very loosely.

Also the location of the hole is a bit questionable, as for example our test rig's power supply Antec HCP-850 W's fan does not match with the fan hole, and therefore one-third of the fan is covered.
