    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?

    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.

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    We have the RTX 3090 FE and that works just fine in the ALTA F1, so RTX 3080 FE should be no different. Please also keep in mind that NZXT H1 is likely not a good barometer of how well the ALTA F1 will cool despite it being the same 90 degree rotated design. The ALTA F1 will have vastly better...

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    Caseking.de owns Overclockers UK so you may want to check with them too. We are still monitoring demand and weighing our options at this time. Nowadays not that many distributors/resellers are confident selling a $299 PC case!

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    No plans to introduce more versions of ALTA F1 at the moment unfortunately. But those new Air Penetrator fans are good and respond well to DC voltage change if you want to control their speeds. No further updates on the S1, project still in suspension.

    Lian Li all brushed aluminum cases

    We are not producing these cases like we used to also. I believe the decline came in stages, higher costs aside, aluminum cases started losing their appeal in the mainstream when cases with plastic front panel was capable of mimicking brushed metal about 10-12 years ago. Then the focus for high...

    Yes, it was a recent decision. The posts here on Hardforum were a factor which I used to help convince higher-ups to release ALTA F1 outside of China, albeit on a limited basis. So thanks to all of you that have participated in these threads! For US, expect about a month or two for the shipment...

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    No idea at this time, but please keep in mind that quantity is limited so you may not be able to get one locally in your country and it could be a couple of months before a distributor will get it in stock.

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    badpixel, we have been using the -G suffix for a while now, it means "glass" panel version. For cases that may have plain or glass versions, we will use this suffix, you can see this with our FARA R1 case models. The included fans are our retail Air Penetrator 140i. Those vented expansion slots...

    Hi guys, we've decided to export a limited number of these cases to sell outside of China and currently negotiating with a couple of distributors/resellers.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention! FT02 was incorrectly listed as recommended for FS305, so it will be removed. The TJ11 does fit the FS305 though.

    New Silverstone Alta F1

    Here is another review in Chinese, you can set it to auto-translate caption in YouTube setting: As to making an ALTA case bigger for enthusiasts that need the room, we did have an ALTA S1 for that purpose. But as many of you know, that project is still in suspension!

    High end silverstone 2021 cases?

    CPU on air was similar but GPU (non-blower) was up to 5 degrees better with 140mm fans. Basically it was the difference between losing and beating the FT05 (which was a top-notch performer) in cooling performance.

    High end silverstone 2021 cases?

    That translation of our "Air Penetrator" fan is actually very accurate. For the Chinese market, we really do call them "armor-piercing bullet (or ammunition)" fans!

    High end silverstone 2021 cases?

    No, they weren't included as the three 140mm fans we included perform better than two 180mm fans in this case for nearly all test configurations we had. So we didn't anticipate people were wanting to replace the fans in the ALTA F1 for performance reasons. We may add the screws in later...
