This has been a great case to review and a pleasure to work with. There really isn’t anything that SilverStone left out of it. So the question that has to be asked is whether or not this case is worth its incredibly high price tag? This isn’t easy to answer and will really depend on your particular needs and budget.
When you take the price into account you have to remember that this is most likely going to be the last case that you’re ever going to need. I know that I’ve been through at least four cases over the last six years. If I had saved that money and purchased this case I would actually be much better off than I am now. I would even have a case that wouldn’t impede any of my future upgrades. This is where this case makes sense. It offers the ability to upgrade many years into the future and will also look amazing. This case can also be modded incredibly easily being that there aren’t any rivets to remove. All of the panels can be removed and individually painted with ease. SilverStone really listened to what the enthusiasts wanted and totally delivered. There is only one downside I see to this case and that’s its size. This is actually a double edged sword. Its size is going to make it difficult to move or place in certain areas. Its size is also one of the reasons it’s so amazingly easy to work in. If you have a limited amount of space or you are constantly moving your system around, this is probably not going to be the case for you.
Definitely very impressed with this case. It has everything that you would ever need for any of your future builds. This case isn’t easy on the wallet but it does deliver incredible features that give this case real value. If you have the room for it and the cash it isn’t going to disappoint you. For those that are looking at this to mod it or go with an extreme water cooling system, this case is going to really please you. When you discover how easy it is to take apart and reassemble you will understand why it’s so expensive. There really aren’t any other cases that fit into its category. There was the Thermaltake Level 10, but that case was nowhere nearly as feature rich as this one. It also didn’t have the simplistic and understated styling of this one. If you’re going to spend upwards of 6 to 700 dollars for a case I would think that you would want something that wouldn’t be an eyesore. This case will look amazing no matter where you put it and will definitely get you some nerd cred. It’s unfortunate that a case like this has to be so expensive but you really are getting what you pay for. This case will be the last one that you will need for a very long time. For this reason and the others that I’ve already mentioned this case gets the Editor’s Choice Award here at Motherboards.Org.
