Closer Look: Interior
Upon opening the case, I was very impressed by the way SilverStone effectively used all the space available in the tiny case. Along the top of the case lie the power supply and the optical drive bay.
Directly under the optical drive bay is the two hard drive bays. The 3.5" drive bay hangs down over the main body of the interior of the case and between that drive bay and the optical drive bay is the 2.5" bay. It's nice having both size bays, as 2.5" drives are still less than common. As Solid State Disks gain popularity, 2.5" drives are becoming more accepted. It's nice to know that the case is ready for that not-so-distant future upgrade.
The main body of the case is more spacious than I had originally thought. In this, SilverStone also had good foresight. This case is not as limited as many other small form factor cases because it provides plenty of room for adequate CPU cooling and for large video cards. The case supports up to a 78mm CPU cooling fan.
It also holds enough room for a 9" video card. If you are wondering whether your card will fit, SilverStone provides a supported GPU list. It looks like, as of the date this article was published, NVIDIA cards up to the GeForce 9800 will fit, as well as ATI cards up to the Radeon 4850. One thing to remember here is that the power supply comes with one 6 pin plug for your GPU. If you have a card that requires two, you will have to get a converter.
