Silverstone GD07 HTPC chassis review -
At default the door is locked, you can leave it unlocked of course but it will need very little to open up. So if you bump into the table with the GHD0-7 the door might open.
The chassis is made out of steel, yet the front side bezel is actually brushed aluminum, for downright great aesthetics. As you can see as always Silverstone keeps things simple. No bright lights and LEDs, chrome etc , everything is dark, the way it should be for an HTPC.
Once we open the door things become more clear. From left to right we spot a good four HDD bays. Interesting to see are the two USB 3.0 ports, that's a nice touch making the chassis hip and new. In the middle MIC and Headphone connectors and all the way up placement for an two optical drives like DVD or Blu-ray.
Other IO functionality is a little sober, no memory card connectors, no eSATA ports. Then again, would you really need them on a HTPC ?
When we look at the sides we see meshes for air intake and exhaust, the chassis is equipped with a total of three 120mm fans. One of the meshes is at the top allowing your components to be cooled well.
All fans have dust covers that can be removed and cleaned real easy.
we review the Silverstone GD07 HTPC chassis. The Grandia GD07, an updated version which offers everything you ever wanted in for a HTPC, it's so spacious that you could even use it as a very cool desktop PC. I mean Extended ATX (EATX) sized motherboards fit (!), heck you can even throw in very long graphics cards in there as we'll show you.

We review the SilverStone GD06 HTPC chassis, aimed at the home theater DIY audience that has a need for stylish looks, good functionality versus a competitive price.
SilverStone 750 Watt ATX Power Supply
Today we will have a look at the Zeus 750 Watt continuous power supply from Silverstone. A really awe-inspiring power supply with four (yes four) +12 Volts rails and which is also an SLI ready power supply. We'll put it to the test buy using our quad SLI setup. The new Zeus is cool, literally, as up to 750W it'll maintain a temperature of 50°C. You get 60 AMPs combined (over 700W) for these four +12V rails alone, making the ST75ZF capable of powering any top of the line system available today and the near future.
SilverStone 600 Watt ATX Power Supply
It carries the label "Strider" and this model comes with a fantastic 600 Watts rating. It's supposed to be a a high-end PSU which is ready for SLI and Crossfire as it has quad 12 volts rails and active PFC, silent fan. We'll explain all that to you over the next pages though.
