    SilverStone rolled out its latest mid-tower aimed at being cost-effective with superior cooling, the Precision PS03. The case as an all-black exterior and interior, with a perforated metal front panel. It measures 200 mm(w)x 472mm(h) x 471mm(d). Of the seven 3.5" drive bays, two are external. There are four 5.25" bays. All internal bays and 5.25" bays have tool-free drive retention mechanism. The motherboard tray has an opening behind the CPU socket area, for easy management of CPU coolers with bolt-through or back-plate based retention mechanisms.

    Cooling includes a 120 mm fans on the front, bottom, and rear, and room for an optional 140 mm fan on the top. Apart from the case buttons and LEDs, the user panel on top has two USB ports and a storage compartment. SilverStone will release the Precision PS03 later this month. The pricing however, isn't announced yet.

    Back-to-front 3.5" hard drive bays like every other cheapo Made-in-China aluminum case? Aside from the nice black coating and what appears to be precut hole for heatsink mounting purposes, this case is truly unexceptional. Looks like any other cheapo grade case targeted at budget builds, but knowing Silverstone you will have the privilege of paying at least $25(US) extra or more just for the Silverstone branding/logo.

    A design that is copied is more likely a good design than one that is not. How many products out there these days are really "original," anyway?
    drdaver says thanks.

    The HAF 932, HAF 922 and CM 690 II all use unique chassis bodies. CM is really good about developing their own chassis structures and keeping them to themselves.

    Most chassis manufacturers don't own the tools to make their own chassis so they buy labels, change some colors and fans and call a chassis their own. Its cheaper than investing the millions to buy a metal stamping assembly line.

    Xigmatek Midgard - CM 690 Original case in point.

    One company makes one silly case than some 16 year old kid freaks out on the internet and says its "Bad Ass" than some engineers working for those companies (similar training to wild monkeys) Draws up a goofy sketch and than they stamp them out...

    When the defects are so obvious and they claim to have superior cooling it dosent even make me laugh anymore, its sad.

    And that a company I used to respect (Silverstone) is doing it is even worse:shadedshu

    I Was thinking the same thing, that is my HAF 932 in smaller form, with no holes for tubing, and not really any place to hide cables. However, it is all black and made of aluminum which I like. I wish they would have kept their original designs going though.
