    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    The wider cutout for audio ports on the front panel was implemented sometimes in late 2011, this was part of the V1.1 update that also included other minor improvements. So there are approximately one year worth of V1.0 TJ08-E produced, which will be difficult to find now. 5.25" drive bay...

    SILVERSTONE TJ08E - New MicroATX Case

    The top PSU vent on the TJ08-E was designed specifically for FF141 filter so no, the FF143 (matte black) won't fit perfectly on it. Though if you are handy with cutting, you could shave off the corners on the FF143 filter a bit to make it fit better. And yeah, the TJ08-E and PS07 have been...

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    TechPowerUp's review on the ALTA F1 is up now. Not a glowing review as expected due to the high cost for us to bring to North America, but it did perform well in many of their cooling tests!

    2kW+ PSU options?

    Sorry I should have made it clear that we are showing an example "chassis" that could benefit from having a shorter PSU. The system components in the photo is for illustrative purpose (to give buyers of the chassis an idea of size and component clearance), you can of course build a more powerful...

    2kW+ PSU options?

    There are actually lots of use cases for a shorter high wattage PSUs, we know because we design cases too! Below is one of the examples (our RM42-502 case), the PSU in the photo is 140mm deep, so an 180mm one could still work, while a 220mm one will not with the adjacent 5.25" bay occupied by...

    2kW+ PSU options?

    Unfortunately we won't be able to just add a power switch to the current design. The PSU at only 180mm deep (typical size for many 850W modular PSUs from other brands), is already as packed as it can be with components!

    2kW+ PSU options?

    We announced a 2050W unit last month, it's shipping now and should be available in North America by the end of the year: https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=1023

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    Carlyle2020, thanks for sharing how you tinkered with the FT02, very cool! To our knowledge the reference (founders) cards should all still work OK in vertical orientation so there are definitely more options available. We've been improving our Air Penetrator 180mm fans the last couple of years...

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    The front panel contains the I/O ports cutout so you wouldn't be able to use the I/O ports if you did rearrange front panel to the rear of the chassis!

    Many questions about setting up RGB and RGB vs ARGB fans.

    You may want to double check the mounting holes of the 230mm fan against the 200mm fan. They may be the same, meaning you could still buy 200mm fans to mount in the same spots as the 230mm. Our recently released Air Penetrator 184i fan for example, has multiple mounting holes that will fit to...

    How often do you replace power supply?

    PSUs can last through multiple PC builds for more than a decade, there is no need to preemptively replace them.

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    The RTX 3090 Founder's Edition works normally in vertical cases so yeah, it'll perform well in the ALTA F1. Honestly we don't know how well that adjustable GPU mount will work in the ALTA F1. We probably won't release something like that for vertical cases though, it seems to defeat the purpose...

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    We are definitely in touch with several GPU vendors, we have and will continue to "recommend" them to design their GPU cooler for vertical chassis like ours. I know manufacturers may ignore a couple of customer requests, but when the number of requests start pilling up, they will take notice...

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    Thanks for the feedbacks! At this point, ALTA F1 remains a limited release product in North America so unless by miracle it starts to have huge demand, we are not going to be able to offer variations for this case.
