Building off the successful GD04 and GD05, two chassis models that set benchmarks in 2009, SilverStone created the Grandia GD06 to again raise the expectation enthusiasts have for HTPC (Home Theater Personal Computer) chassis. SilverStone engineering team’s expertise in SFF (Small Form Factor) and HTPC are again in full display with GD06’s expanded capability in storage and cooling performance. These improvements were made with the compact depth maintained (340mm) and exterior visuals enhanced as the GD06 is stunningly beautiful as a computer chassis and fits perfectly in the living room. Its five hard drive storage is augmented by two hot-swappable bays for maximum flexibility while a front door lock and a rear Kensington Security Slot ensure security for the installed drives. Cooling is provided by three 120mm silent fans with filters for exceptional performance, quietness and effective dust prevention. For those in doubt that a small footprint HTPC chassis can be used to build a powerful and fully loaded media server, the Gradia GD06 will change their mind. Features
• Three silent 120mm fans included. • Positive air pressure design for excellent cooling/quietness and dust-prevention. • Incredible 340mm depth to fit comfortably inside home theater cabinet. • Designed with cable routing for easy installation. • Support 4 x 3.5” hard drives and 2.5” hard drive or SSD (Solid-state drive). • Support expansion cards up to 11 inches. • Includes two front USB 3.0 ports. • Support standard PS2 (ATX) up to 150mm.

Good value case with lots of ventilationRemovable drive bays are great. Space inside is good but wire runs require a bit of thinking through. Rounded front softens the look, but key lock and rather large logo disappoint. Downside is front panel seems flimsy despite being solid aluminium and the lid is not very snug either.

Nice looking HTPCI really like Silverstone products, even since my first one 15 years ago. Strong, built to last & the style is still current even now a days !
This case has a great look to it, I wanted it to cover the ugly Disk drive & the blue USB header's & this does the job with the flip down front. The USB's still can house a small Bluetooth adaptor so don't worry about room for it, they have covered that !
The inside case is well though out but be careful on your PSU as the hotswap bay does come back quite far into the case, so much so I couldn't get the Be quiet semi modular power supply in ! The spec sheet stats upto 150mm PSU & the Be quiet is 150mm but it still wasn't enough. I've seen site reviews on this GD06 that was sent with a Silverstone PSU & it fit so if you are buying this case maybe buy a Silverstone PSU !
Over all I really liked the case but my PSU was more than the case & I had to sent it back for a GD05 (the same but with no flip down front & hotswap bays).

Great CaseI think this is one of the best cases you can get for an HTPC
it fits into the HiFi rack & looks good.
There is enough space inside for most users & the layout is well thought out.
the case comes with three fans, all intake. they run virtually silently which is an important consideration for a device that will sit in the living area.

Really like this case, fits in my stereo cabinet a treat.This is a good quality case. The only downside when using a modular power supply is its a very tight fit unless all the cables come out the base of the power supply unit due to the hard drive bays. I managed (just) with a modular Cosair unit but you do need to force things a little.
The hard drive bays are excellent if not a little bit fiddly. You have two drive bays that allow you to swap out drives without taking the case apart.
I used a solid state drive with mine so had to adapt the mounting of this a bit but with a couple of felt pads it all fitted together fine.
There is plenty of room for a standard installation of CPU and standard fan but if you want an oversized heat sink and fan the optical drive (which sits above) may get in the way.
The fans are reasonably quiet on full throttle but I would suggest if you motherboard (like mine) that only allows the control of one case fan to get a couple of fan controllers and stick them in the spare expansion ports in the back of the case and turn them to minimum then you can hardly hear the fans, its whisper quiet. I got mine from eBay for about £3 each.
Overall very pleased with the looks of this and it makes an excellent HTPC cabinet. Its size is about that of a decent amplifier and the case depth is perfect to fit in with HiFi components.

Well constructed HTPC caseThis is a nice HTPC case with a shallower depth than most cases, making it easier to fit into most TV cabinets. The shallowness does impede on space a bit, but there is some flexibility in locating the hard drives / SSDs which helps. I couldn't fit my Corsair H60 into it which was frustrating as the design of the case doesn't allow for the fitment of Corsair Hydro style coolers. The case is well built and reasonably priced
