SilverStone Grandia GD03
SilverStone is one of the brands we enjoy testing for computer cases as they always seem to drive innovations into their products from the Sugo to the Raven to their very impressive Temjin series. One of the SilverStone product lines that we had not reviewed up to this point was the Grandia series of HTPC enclosures, but that changed when we tested out the SilverStone Grandia GD03. The GD03 is an ATX enclosure that integrates dual hot-swappable HDD bays, an aluminum front panel, and a design to deliver quite yet cool performance.
- Aluminum Front Panel, 0.8mm SECC Body
- ATX, Micro ATX Compatibility
- 2 x 5.25" Drive Bays
- 5 x 3.50" Drive Bays
- 6 x 80mm Fan Slots (2 HDD, 2 Exhaust, 2 Sides)
- 2 x 80mm, 2050RPM, 21dBA Fans Included
- 7.85 kg Net Weight
- 425 x 182.2 x 436 mm
- Rackmount Compatible
The Grandia GD03 was packaged just like other SilverStone HTPC cases we have reviewed in the past. The aluminum chassis was residing between two large foam molds and all of this was within a thick cardboard box. The exterior of this box advertised various features of this ATX enclosure. The mounting hardware and SilverStone user's manual can be found within a smaller cardboard box located within the case itself.
