SilverStone Precision PS05 Case Review

Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The new SilverStone PS05 costs only USD 50 (Newegg.com offers free shipping plus a USD 10 mail-in rebate, making it the bargain of the month). Is it worthwhile to buy this case? Let’s check it out.

Of course the manufacturer had to save money somewhere to make this case so inexpensive: it comes with only one fan and you can clearly see that the plastic used is of an inferior quality as compared to more expensive cases. And the steel sheets used (especially the one used on the rear panel) are thinner than the ones used on more expensive cases. On the other hand, the PS05 comes with several features usually only found on more expensive cases.

In Figures 1 and 2 you can see an overall view of the SilverStone PS05. As you can see, both side panels are solid.

The front panel of the SilverStone Precision PS05 can be seen in Figure 3. This case has four external 5.25” bays  and two external 3.5” bays. A place for installing a 120 mm fan for cooling down the hard disk drives is available on the bottom part of the front panel, and you must remove the panel in order to proceed with this installation. An air filter is available for this fan.
