Read a recent review of this case and wow it looks good! The twin 120mm fans are great and really does look like it has fantastic airflow! It would suit me nicely as laying down on its side would fit under my PC bench on the table underneath nicelywhilst providing better cooling than my existing aspire.

Does anybody have one? It's cheaper than an X-QPack as well!

It looks more like a miniATX tower than a microATX. Maybe is just the styling?

Im paying $99 + $16 3 day shipping from egg. At directron it's $77 but shipping is like $25 for ups ground which takes like 2 weeks :rolleyes:

Looks like a very nice case. It would be easy to add a quiet 80mm fan on the side next to the Videocard as well.

Ahh here in the UK its cheaper than an X-QPack (which is £70 w/psu as silverstone is just over £60).

I quite like the small towers as it helps with airflow and imo looks really smart. Would look nice with some LED fans glowing through th front panel

Wow, very nice case. Temperature in the case is pretty low from the review. With that case I can install the Ninja CPU cooler with no problem. Now I can't decide which to get for my next build, the SG01 or this. I have to see this pretty thing in person first though.

that is one sexy case imo. only thing is, i personally don't see a point in getting a matx tower when you can just sacrifice a few more inches and get a mini atx tower.

I'm gonna get a black one when the AMD tech tour rolls around with my next build.
I like the dual 120mm fans! It just like a Super Lanboy but smaller.
Plus this has the side vent for your video card a very nice touch!

then you can say sacrifice a couple more and you can get a midtower, sacrifice a couple more and you can get a full tower etc.

I have SG01 Sugo (older ver. not Evolútion). The temperature was too high. So instead evolution upgrade I order this one. Silverstones new produkt - fan controlel FP33 -looks perfet in one of 3,5 position.

My plan configuration:
TJ08 Black
SIlverstone Strider 600W (modular kables - kits of shorther cables)
CPU cooler - Silverstone Nitrogen NT06
Two 12cm fan needs to be change to some controlable (Nexus or Scytch)

CPU AMD X2 3800+
MB MSI ATI RS482M4-ILD/SB 450
RAM 2x1Gb DDR400 (OEM HP probably Hynx or Samsung)
VGA ATI Fire GL 5100 128Mb DDR (Plan to Upgrade, but i'm waiting for DirectX10 VGA Cards)
HDD 80Gb + 160Gb WD Cawiar RE+ (Placed to the cage and screw to the floor before front 12cm fan)
Optional 92cm fan for blowing air to VGA card.

It looks like a nice case.Looks perfect for watercooling. But $100 for a steel microATX ($150 w/ window) seems a bit high considering there is no psu.The Cooler Master 541 goes for something like $45 @newegg. Or am I missing something the rest of you didn't?

Its just a good looking good quality case. ive spent 400$ on just an SFF case before, who cares how much it costs, as long as I get what i want.

I see your point of paying a premium price for something if you really want it.
But I guess what I was asking was. If Cooler Master can make a case for around $50? why can't Silverstone. They both seem to have specs. that are very close to each other.

if the PSU inside the NSK3300 can handle a 1900XTX...this case will become a less convincing option.

The Silverstone is smaller compare to the Antec i believe. It also looks better IMO.

You got any pictures? Is it really small compare to a mid tower case? Im just waiting for the Core 2 Duo to come out while still deciding on my case, TJ08 or SG01. Maybe by then, the SG01 2 will come out.
