SilverStone PS10 Review

Up Close:  Roof, Rear and Base.

The roof of the case is slightly raised mimicking the power bulges on the case sides.  At first view it actually appears that all there is up here is a vent with no mounting points for fans.  Whip of the extremely well fitting, magnetically attached mesh filter however and a little surprise is revealed in the form of mountings for both 120 and 240mm fans.  It also looks suspiciously like the 120mm mounts are spaced for rads.  All will be revealed later.  It should also be mentioned that the magnetic strips that hold the mesh in place, although very visible on the image below left are hardly visible in real life

Round the back things are fairly standard, and although there's a mount for a 120mm fan none is actually fitted.  Silverstone have also eschewed replaceable PCI covers for the 7 slots they offer, instead opting for vented punch out covers accessed via a latched cover panel.  Down at the base we also find the cut out for a standard ATX (PS2) PSU.

The case stands on four quite rigid clip in plastic feet, with ventilation to the PSU being offered via a mesh filtered hex cut out towards the rear.

In the Overview we mentioned that we weren't sure whether the aesthetics were leaning towards low noise or full on gamer.  Well it appears Silverstone themselves aren't too sure if they want to make the case low noise, having decided to only partially cover the interior of the side panels with foam as opposed to the whole door.  they've also not been overly generous when it comes to instructions and accessories, providing only an A4 sheet and a smallest bag of screws we've ever seen in a case review.

How will the new low noise, low cost case from the boys at Silverstone measure up?

I had to look at the photos before reading as it looks like their 30 RL04B with different panels. It basically is. It kind of feels like it was designed up way before making really nice, cheap cases was a thing. Maybe now Corsair and NZXT are making nice 'wallet friendly' (50) cases, things will improve even more and this will be considered sub par. Which is a shame really as 6 months ago this would be a gem.

Almost exactly what I was thinking especially as the Phantom 240 is due May 16th for the same price
