It's a fact that has proven itself over and again: technology shrinks. Even for performance oriented enthusiasts, it isn't always better to “go big or go home.” In fact, the more technology shrinks, the more useful it becomes. Consider that the first commercially available computer's CPU and memory was 14' x 8' x 8' (4.3m x 2.4m x 2.6m), clocked in at a mind-numbing 2.5MHz, and weighed 29, 000 LBS (UNIVAC I )! Sixty years later and your smart phone occupies just 3/8” x 3” x 2” of space, weighs just over 4 ozs, and runs at 1500 MHz. Today, and in the spirit of shrinking technology, Benchmark Reviews investigates the SilverStone SST-PS07B Micro ATX mini-tower chassis.
As computer enthusiasts, we understand that bigger cases give us more space and more space is a good when swapping components, fitting cooling towers and radiators, and having enough space for drives and fans. We also know that full towers and even mid-towers come with a hefty space requirement. If we have space for a full tower, that's just fine, but as enthusiasts, we also look for efficiency. If we can get what we need in a Micro ATX case, like the Silverstone PS07, then there really isn't any reason to go big simply to go big. The question is, have micro-cases come far enough for us to seriously consider them?
