SilverStone Technology

SilverStone is best known for its cases and power supplies, but before being shown the three new cases unveiled at Computex, I was shown the recently-released Air Penetrator fans. Available in two flavors, the 180mm AP181 and 120mm AP121, the Air Penetrator fans feature overlapping fan blades and a unique grill that provide increased and focused airflow. The AP181 is black and spins from 700 to 1200 rpm, spitting out 80 to 130 CFM at 18 to 34 dBA. The AP121 features transparent blue UV fan blades in a black frame and spins at 1500 rpm, producing 35.36 CFM at 22.4 dBA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As stated above, SilverStone unveiled three new cases at Computex. The first case was the Raven RV03, the third update to the Raven series. One of the complaints of the RV02 was that it was too deep, so SilverStone reduced the depth in the RV03 to something more the norm for a mid-tower case. However, due to a revised layout, the RV03 can accommodate extended-ATX motherboards like the RV01 and unlike the RV02. SilverStone also moved the PSU to the front of the case and put the hard drives facing the back side, which forces cable management. The RV03 supports four 3.5" drives plus two 2.5" drives and comes with two AP181 fans. In the photos below, you can also see the new 90° power cable being used with a SilverStone ST1000-P power supply.

 

 

The Fortress FT03 is a pretty sleek case, unlike anything I've seen before. It features an aluminum outer shell with steel body and fits mATX boards. The shell is very smooth and plain all around, except for a vent on one side, and has no wires coming out of any side (they come out of the top openings, making it great for HTPCs, as you can stick it just about anywhere. Measuring in at 235mm (W) x 438mm (H) x 284mm (D), it's fairly tall for an mATX case - but that's a good thing, as it is not only able to fit a full-size CPU cooler, it can also fit large high-end video cards, like the Radeon HD 5970 that was stuffed in the display model. The case also has room for three 3.5" drives, two of which are hot-swappable, and one 2.5" drive.

 

 

 

The last case SilverStone unveiled at Computex was the Temjin TJ11, a pure beast of a case. The TJ11 is an all-aluminum case that measures 225mm (W) x 650mm (H) x 650mm (D). In fact, it's so big that SilverStone included two power buttons - one on the top for those that put their case on the floor, and one on the bottom-front for those that put their case on their desk. The TJ11 has nine 5.25" external bays, six 3.5" internal drive trays, and three 2.5" mounting brackets on the side of the 5.25" bays, so no space is left unused. On the top of the case, toward the front, there are four USB ports - two USB 3.0 ports on the left side and two USB 2.0 ports on the right side. The TJ11 comes with two AP181 fans and three 120mm fans. If you're using watercooling, there's also the optional 4x120mm radiator attachment - the biggest radiator you'll find. Lastly, SilverStone gives a nod to modders by making the case completely free of rivets - screws are used for everything.
