SilverStone Precision PS05B

Most people would agree that SilverStone cases are great. In fact, many of our most favorite computer cases over the past five years have come from SilverStone Technology, including the very wonderful Temjin TJ10, the incredibly small Sugo, Raven RV02, and most recently the Fortress FT02, among others. The only issue that most computer enthusiasts and system builders gripe with regarding SilverStone enclosures is their price-tag, which usually don't come cheap. For example, the TJ10 that has been on the market now for some three years still sells for nearly $300 USD. While those cases are often worth the price, one of the newest ATX cases from this seven-year-old manufacturer sells for just $50 USD, so we decided to check it out. In this review, we are exploring the SilverStone Precision PS05B.

Features:

- Plastic & Mesh Front Panel, Steel Body
- ATX, Micro ATX Compatibility
- 4 x 5.25-inch External Drive Bays
- 2 x 3.5-inch External Drive Bays
- 4 x 3.5-inch Internal Drive Bays
- 5 x 120mm Fan Slots (One Fan Included)
- Various Tool-less Mechanisms
- 7 Expansion Slots
- 6.2 Kilograms
- 190 x 466 x 485 mm

The Precision PS05B arrived just like any other SilverStone chassis: in a thick cardboard box resting amid two blocks of Styrofoam. The PS05B arrived without any damage and found inside the box was the user's manual and a bag containing the various mounting hardware. The PS05 chassis is available in two models: the SST-PS05B and SST-PS05B-W, both versions are colored black but the latter offers a side panel acrylic window. SilverStone advertises this mid-tower chassis as having great cooling performance thanks to its five 120mm fan slots (albeit you only get one fan with the case itself), a convenient tool-less installation process for most components, and cable tie-down spots within the chassis as well as vibration dampening mounts on the hard drive bays. SilverStone sent over the PS05B ATX enclosure as a review sample.
