With all attention this week being turned to finishing up Phoronix Test Suite 3.0-Iveland and OpenBenchmarking.org for its launch tomorrow during the Southern California Linux Expo, there is no major Linux article in the queue for today, but we are looking at what SilverStone describes as "the entry-level HTPC benchmark." This company that's very well known for their high-end enclosures is now dabbling with a HTPC enclosure that will not set you over your budget on a Home Theater PC build. This review also includes a look at the Strider Essential 400W (SST-ST40F-ES) power supply.

This is not SilverStone's first entry-level enclosure in recent times but just a few months back we looked at the SilverStone Precision PS05B, which was a $50 USD ATX case. While it was no SilverStone Temjin TJ10, it cost just one-sixth the price and was a nice product considering all factors.

Features:

- Micro ATX, Micro DTX, Micro ITX
- 0.8mm SECC Body
- 1 x 5.25-inch Drive Bay
- 2 x 3.5-inch Drive Bays (2.5-inch Compatible)
- 1 x 2.5-inch Drive Bay
- USB 3.0 Front Panel Connectors
- 3.3 Kilograms
- 440 x 105 x 340 mm Dimensions

With this small HTPC enclosure just weighing a bit over three kilograms, the packaging is not too elaborate, but it is reliable and is the quality expected from SilverStone Technology. Included with the ML03 chassis is the necessary mounting hardware, a fan filter, USB 3.0 connection adapter, and a few clips for enhancing the cable management within this petite enclosure.
