Silent Storm is an inexpensive mid-tower case from Sunbeamtech – it costs only USD 50 at Newegg.com – coming with three 120 mm fans, a transparent side window and screwless installation mechanisms for daughterboards and disk drives. Let’s take an in-depth look at this product.
This case has five 5.25” bays, two external 3.5” bays for floppy disk drives and three internal 3.5” bays for hard disk drives. The front panel is protected by a plastic front door. The quality of this door isn’t the best and we wouldn’t expect a better quality on a USD 50 product.
In Figure 6, you can see the rear panel, using the very traditional ATX design, but with the addition of one big 120 mm fan there. This case uses two thumbscrews to hold the left side panel (the one that must be removed for installing parts inside the case).
