While at Phoronix we mostly focus on Linux hardware compatibility and hardware that can be stressed using our flagship testing software, we always enjoy taking a break from our usual Linux benchmarking routine to look at SilverStone cases. SilverStone has been around for just six years but they constantly drive innovation into their wide assortment of computer enclosures with many different series for fitting the needs of HTPC, desktop, small form factor, and traditional tower customers. One of the newest lineups for SilverStone is the Precision series, which strives to be a precision crafted enclosure with classic styling. In this review we are looking at the SilverStone Precision PS02 to see how it compares to the Temjin TJ10, Kublai KL03, Fortress FT01, Raven RV01, and other SilverStone products that have met our praise.

The SilverStone Precision PS02 is offered as the SST-PS02B and SST-PS02B-W, with the latter model offering a side panel window. For review today we had the model without the side window, the SST-PS02B. The Precision PS02 was not packaged nearly as well as the Temjin or Fortress enclosures, where their boxes are often huge to accommodate the Styrofoam and cardboard molds, but still the PS02 had Styrofoam at both ends and arrived safely. The case was residing within a thin plastic bag and inside the aluminum case itself was a cardboard box containing the instruction manual, screws, and other mounting hardware.
