Up Close:  Interior rear and stripped

The first thing we noticed when we looked round the back was that Silverstone had also included their tool free mechanisms back here.  We find this a bit strange that they should splash out on 4 additional and largely unnecessary fittings and not think to spend just that little bit more adding rubber grommets to the cable management holes.  Talking of cable management, there's 14mm of space in which to work your magic.  Not a lot, granted, but if you're diligent it should be plenty.

If you hadn't already realised when we looked at the front side, the 3.5" bays are actually loaded from back here.  This helps keeps cable clutter round the front to a minimum and maintains a tidy overall look to the interior.

The image below left shows 66.6% of the cable tie points, with the image below right showing the remaining 33.3%.  Yes ladies and gentle folk Silverstone have  set a new world record by bestowing the PS10 with just Three, yes Three cable tie points.

Stripping the PS10 down merely involves tugging off the front panel.  This should be done tentatively, taking care to feed the front I/O cables through.  Removing this panel also let's us get a look at the only fan in the case, a 120mm unit with space below for another 120mm fan should you choose to splash out and buy another.

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
