Examination:

Weighing in at just over 6 kilograms, the Precision PS05B is significantly lighter than many of SilverStone's other enclosures like the Fortress FT02 that weighs more than twice as much (15 kilograms). The PS05B though is still constructed out of a steel body, but it is smaller than many of SilverStone's heavier alternatives and the front panel is constructed out of plastic and mesh. The PS05B does not feel as strong as the more expensive SilverStone enclosures, but still it really feels quite reliable, especially compared to other enclosures we have used that retail for $50 USD or less.

The front panel on the SilverStone PS05B is relatively basic with no drive bay door/cover or anything else besides some details on the left and right sides. There is also SilverStone's logo in the middle of the mesh covering the front 120mm intake fan. The PS05B has four external 5.25-inch drive bays and two 3.5-inch external bays. On the top of this mid-tower are two USB 2.0 ports along with a microphone and audio headphone jack. There is no FireWire or eSATA connectivity with this chassis. The power and reset switches are located in front of the audio / USB ports. On the top of the chassis, there are also two 120mm fan slots, but they do not come with any fans pre-installed.

Both sides of the SST-PS05B are plain with nothing really to look at, unless you have the SST-PS05B-W model with the acrylic window on the left side. On the bottom of the case are four large rubber feet. There are also two 120mm intake fan slots on the bottom, which align with the ATX power supply mounting and motherboard areas. To much satisfaction, both of these fan slots do have simple fan filters pre-installed.
