Product Overview The introduction of Grandia GD07 and GD08 cases from SilverStone ushers in a new era of home theater computing like never before. For the first time, the power and storage capacity of a server can now be neatly stowed beautifully and quietly in a home theater environment. Completely reengineered to fully utilize all available spaces, the Grandia GD07 can accommodate an incredible amount of drives (up to eleven) and high-end components (graphics cards up to 13.6 inches long) with minimal sacrifices. It is even possible to fit SSI EEB (12” x 13”) extended ATX motherboards in the GD07 despite maintaining an exterior dimension similar to SilverStone’s previous generation full-size HTPC cases.

With a wealth of lessons learned from building the best performing tower cases in the last several years, SilverStone engineers upgraded GD07’s cooling performance tremendously with up to four 120mm fan options. And to make sure owners can easily maintain their cases’ cooling ability over time with the lowest noise possible, custom designed removable filters surround the case for positive pressure to work effectively and quietly.

Built to hide the imperfection of I/O ports and the plethora of drives that may be installed in its four 5.25” drive bays, the GD07’s lockable aluminum front door is beautifully finished with hairline brush pattern to match other home theater components. For those looking to build a powerful home media sever with security features, this is the perfect case. Features • Positive air pressure design for excellent cooling/quietness and dust-prevention.
• Support expansion cards up to 13.6 inches.
• Supports Extended ATX motherboard.
• Quick access filters to prevent dust buildup.
• Lockable front door and power button ensure security of system and drives.
• LED indicator with adjustable brightness.
• Impressive storage capacity of up to eleven drive bays.

Reviews
Rated 1.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by A great idea, poorly executed. This case fills an interesting niche - a (sort of) standard rack-width, quiet media server/HTPC, with support for E-ATX motherboards and four 5.25" drives. The build quality is, however, seriously poor and would be disappointing in a case costing £20, let alone £100. Another reviewer compared the construction materials to cardboard. I will say that the cardboard box this case comes in is superbly engineered in comparison to what it contains. - The case is made of extremely thin metal. The drive carrier bends and flexes when pulled out; the rest of the case feels similarly flimsly. - The motherboard tray *is* the base of the case, the right wall a mount for one hard drive. In effect, there is little substance to the case, it is just a bare shell with a novel drive mounting cage. It reeks of cost-cutting, and Silverstone charging more for much, much less than you would get in a standard tower. - Paint chips off as a matter of course, especially around screw holes and the like. - The included standoffs and screws are off poor quality, shedding crumbs of metal when screwed in. The heads on some of the fan mounting screws on my case were chewed up, presumably from being installed at the factory. - The lock mechanism is clumsy and inconsistent in its action. I could go on, but I'm sure you get the picture. I would have returned the case, but could not as I had to modify the drive cage. Considering the case's purpose as a server enclosure, it would have been nice if dividing folds between the 5.25" bays had been omitted. I understand that the nature of this case necessitates some compromises in terms of design, and am happy to live with this, having done research before buying. What is galling, however (and especially at this price point) is the poor quality of this case. I have owned a Silverstone case before - the (now discontinued) PS01 - and found it superb. This thing, on the other hand, is several rungs down on the quality scale, yet costs 4 times as much. Go figure. 12 October 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The most confused Case on the Planet I purchased this case for use as a HTPC/Gaming Rig for the lounge. Case looks good next to the HIFI, it could do without the painted Silverstone Logo, maybe a badge would be better. Firstly the front cover is well made and looks good and there are plenty of options for different motherboards, drives and fans. Secondly the rest of the case is made from recycled cardboard with the rear I/O (reverberation) panel riveted in. Generally the materials and construction of the main body are very low end. The painting of the case body and lid could also be better some lumps in paint on most panels. It should also be highlighted that there is not much room in this case, and so this needs to be thought about in make some choices around motherboard and fan sizes as well as GFX cards, drive locations and orientation. Being realistic ATX MB with 120 fans long GFX card and a few drives is the limit. It might be possible to fit a slightly larger board with vertical SATA ports but a full E-ATX limits you to 60mm fans on the base. Which highlights the biggest issue if you want component X then Y won't fit. This case will sit there and look good but you need to plan your build out very carefully, don't expect spare mm here or there to run a cable or fit an over sized part. Overall the case should of been 25mm deeper front to back and 20mm wider, more robust and less resonant or £40 cheaper. As is, it will certainly present some challenges if you want to fit some mid/high end gear in this case. 20 May 2014
