CES 2017: Silverstone Shows Cases, PSUs, and More

Add Your Comments

Though better known for their SFF enclosures, Silverstone has expanded to cover standard cases, power supplies and much more. Come along as we take you through what Silverstone had on display this year at CES.

First up, Silverstone’s bread and butter, their cases. We’ll start smaller and work our way to the larger.

SFF Cases

Starting from the left is the Vital VT01 and the newer Vital VT02, both mini-STX form factor and VESA capable. Next up is the Petit VPT204, a fanless, VESA capable enclosure for Intel NUC systems.

Taking a look at larger cases now, on the left is the Sugo SG14 prototype, which is still a few months away from being released. The case will be aimed at the high-end market and may or may not have RGB. Going on down the line is the Fortress Z FTZ01-E, Milo ML07-E, Raven Z RVZ03. These cases support 12″ and longer GPU’s, targeting gamers who want a smaller case without sacrificing on GPU options.

More photos of the Sugo SG14 prototype below. The photo on the right shows the case without the large grill that usually covers this area.

The PM01-FX, PM01-RGB (same case, different lighting) is a revamp of previous PM01 design. Silverstone took constructive feedback from their customers to make improvements. For example, the top of the case now contains two fans, the light has changed to better suit the theme, and the window is now tempered glass.

The white case is the new RL06-PRO, which promises to be a good bang for your buck. Two color schemes will be available white/grey and black/red.

KL-07 Case with Sound Dampening

If you prefer to keep things quiet, the KL-07 contains acoustic damping material pre-applied to interior. The airflow is directed to channel noise away from user. Another cool feature is the easy/toolless 2.5″ drive bays hidden behind the motherboard as seen above.

PS14 Case

Last but not least is a durable budget offering called PS14, which has enough to get you started, but the fan options are limited.

Before leaving the world of cases, Silverstone had a nifty accessory that allows you to add LED lighting to a case fan, rather than buying a brand new fan (seen on PM-01 case above).

Next up, Silverstone had a heavy load of PSU’s to show off.

From left to right, the TX300, ST300XF, ST45-SF, SX500-G, and SX650-G. The SX line feature has high power levels for SFX.

Power Supplies

Power Supplies

The below fully modular power supplies, ET550-B, ET650-B, ST85F-PT, and ST1500-TI are all very short for their power output. Worth noting, the 850W has the most power per liter by size in the market.

Silverstone also showed off new Argon SFF coolers aimed at HTPC and rackmount usage. There are four different models, each featuring three 6mm heatpipes and either 60mm or 70mm dual ball bearing fans. Two different mounting mechanisms are available, either push-pin (XP models) or spring screw bracket (XS models).

The other cooler pictured is the mini-STX Nitrogen NT08-115XP cooler, which is a mere 33mm tall sporting a custom thin 80mm fan and push-pin mounting.

Coolers

Outside of your typical wares, we found an interesting item on Silverstone’s “miscellaneous” table, a sturdy wall mount headphone holder. The Ensemble EBA02 features a sleek aluminum design and is a perfect compliment to a high-end gaming headset. There are also some wireless remotes to power your PC on and off, among other add-ons.
