SilverStone GD06 – A New HTPC-Case in the Line of Grandia Series

Recently, at the official website of SilverStone Technology, appeared the description of the new case SilverStone GD06 of the product line, Grandia Series, designed to accommodate the components of a HTPC computer system. Price around 130$.

Introduction

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 Grandia GD06 will change their mind.
