Inside Grandia GD04
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

To open GD04 you need to remove its top panel, which is fastened to the chassis using three regular screws. The rear panel and the interior from GD04 are not painted black and it would be nice if the manufacturer had painted these parts. On Figures 8 and 9 you have an overall look at the inside the reviewed case (Figure 9 was taken with the hard disk drive bays removed for a better view).

This case supports video cards up to 11” (28 cm) long. If an optical drive is installed, the CPU cooler must have a maximum height of 2 ¾” (7 cm). If an optical drive isn’t used, this limit increases to 4 ¾” (12 cm) by removing the 5.25” bay. SilverStone GD04 supports power supplies up to 7 1/8” (180 mm) long.

Daughter cards must be fastened to the case using regular screws.

The reviewed case has some clips on its bottom panel to fasten and route wires and the case comes with five reusable plastic cable holders that can be attached to these clips to hold and organize the cables coming from the power supply.
