SilverStone Grandia GD08 Review

Internal wiring is not as complicated as one might think. Having the drive cage, and multiple drives installed, one would think that the two bottom mounted fans would chew up your wiring. However, SilverStone provided a box, which if removed would be the third fan placement, on the bottom right of the chassis to assist with protecting and routing of wires. This box features two latches to release, and enough room inside to coil a nest of wires up, keeping them away from your fan blades.

Overall, the GD08 is an exceptional case. The brushed aluminum bezel and the steel body makes for a strong chassis that doesn’t require extra supports. The ability to install eight 3.5 inch hard drives is just crazy and the externally accessible dust guards are pure genius. If you are worried about installing an SSD above the optical drive, don’t. You can either install the optical drive in the lower spot or install your SSD with two screws in the HDD rack. The wiring box makes for a nice clean install and the ability to use a full ATX / EATX motherboard really opens up your options. Bottom line, I absolutely love the Lian Li PC-C60 that we reviewed last month, but it has been replaced.

I get very excited when I get a new case in the lab for review. I get even more excited when the case comes from BitFenix. BitFenix has been quietly making some of the best computer cases out there. Their signature SofTouch Surface Treatment is simply amazing. Having gained popularity with their Colossus case, BitFenix has decided to bring all that style and pizzazz to the Mini ITX platform, and dubbed it the Colossus Mini-ITX.
