Today we are looking at SilverStone’s Grandia GD05 HTPC Case which is great for media buffs who want the power of a computer in the form factor of a standard DVD player or home audio receiver and at a great price of under $100. Read on to see if the Grandia GD05 is the right enclosure for your next HTPC!
Today we look at one of their newest cases in the Grandia line, the GD05. The Grandia GD05 is for the HTPC crowd but can also be used as a Small Form Factor (SFF) case in other areas. At a shallow 325mm (12.8″) in depth the Grandia GD05 can fit in tight entertainment cabinets, but still accommodate full height video cards up to 11” in length. The Grandia also supports Mini-DTX, Mini-ITX and micro-ATX motherboards, full size 5.25” drives, 2.5” and 3.5” hard drives, standard power supplies up to 180mm long (220 if you remove a fan), as well as having three SilverStone Golf Blade 120mm fans. That’s a lot of hardware stuffed into a 12”x17” footprint that stands 6″ high.
