SilverStone Announces SX500-LG Power Supply

For small form factor enthusiasts, the standard SFX power supply form factor has excellent combination of size, power, and affordability. At 100mm deep, however, the standard SFX PSU is also limited in fan size to 80mm. While advances in engineering and components have made modern high-end SFX PSUs quieter than ever, there is still inherent limitation with 80mm fan's ability to dissipate heat at maximum loading conditions while maintaining satisfactory noise profile for users sensitive to higher-pitch sounds. With this in mind, SilverStone has released a "lengthened" variation of the SFX form factor called, SFX-L. With 30mm of added depth, a SFX-L power supply has enough room to fit a 120mm fan, thus its maximum load noise can be not only lower in intensity (via slower fan speed), but also lower in pitch (due to larger fan size).

The first model to debut in the SFX-L will be the SX500-LG, a 500W model that includes all features available from top of the line SFX SilverStone PSUs such as 80 PLUS Gold efficiency, modular flexible flat cables, and semi-fanless capability. An ATX adapter bracket is included as well to enable users to install this PSU into any small or even larger cases that do not have SFX mounting holes.

Silverstone Shows Off Sugo SG12 SFF Case

Silverstone showed off the latest addition to its Sugo line of compact cases, the SG12. This small form-factor case can seat a micro-ATX motherboard. It features a steel frame, with aluminium panels. Breaking from tradition, Silverstone added a bright color applique to the front-bezel, to liven things up. There's a full-size 5.25-inch drive bay, sitting above a couple of USB 3.0 front-panel ports, and standard HDA jacks.

Internally, the SG12 seats a micro-ATX motherboard, with room for two fairly long graphics cards. A standard ATX PSU bay hovers over the motherboard tray, so tall fin-stack heatsinks may not make it to your build. There are three 3.5-inch, and nine 2.5-inch drive bays internally. Fans include a 120 mm intake, and two 80 mm. The case measures 270 mm x 212 mm x 393 mm (WxHxD).

SilverStone Launches the Grandia GD10 PC Case

The Grandia GD10, along with GD09, is a culmination of SilverStone's decade-long experience in HTPC case design and manufacturing into a product that every PC enthusiast can enjoy. The incredible efficiency in which it utilizes all available space results in a case that is close in size externally to Micro-ATX based GD04 and GD05, yet capable of fitting most important full size standard components including wider ATX motherboards (SSI-CEB) such as ROG or other gaming-centric models.

All drive cages have been designed similarly to those from the popular ML03 case to provide maximum flexibility in drive configuration without the need for additional adapters. For cooling, all positive pressure and smooth airflow designs were retained from previous Grandia models while improvements were made to filter access for even easier maintenance. With the addition of a lockable front door, the GD10 offers an attractively sized case that is capable and user-friendly for those interested in building a system with extra security and application that exceeds typical PC or HTPC environments.

Dirac Launches Tesla Cube Series 550W and 650W SFX Power Supplies

Japanese PC hardware maker Dirac launched its Tesla Cube line of high-wattage PSUs in the SFX form-factor. The series includes 550W and 650W models, which should splash your build with enough juice to run single high-end or two performance-segment graphics cards. The two feature single +12V rail designs, efficiency that meets 80 Plus Gold standards, and a fully modular cabling design. The two also come with adapters that let you install them on standard ATX cases. Cables for both models include 24-pin ATX, 4+4 pin EPS, two 6+2 pin PCIe, six SATA, and one Berg. The 650W Tesla Cube displaces Silverstone's SX600-G in being the most powerful SFX power supply. Silverstone's unit was showed off at Computex 2014, and is headed for launch later this month.

SilverStone RAVEN RV05 PC Case Coming In July

The RAVEN RV05, the fifth edition in the exciting RAVEN enthusiasts chassis series continues the tradition of breaking and evolving the standards of desktop PC design. With a bold move that sees the removal of all 5.25" drive bays, the RAVEN team engineers again saw the opportunity to re-utilize the 90 degree rotated design. Previous RAVEN models with 90 degree layout often had to compromise on space efficiency due to fixed length of the motherboard in rotated orientation.

The elimination of 5.25" bays solves this issue naturally and enables RV05 to be even more balanced in terms of design than if the same were done to a traditionally-layout case. With most of the wasted space eliminated from RV05, engineers were thus able to better optimize the case for the most important performance-affecting components such as CPU and GPUs.

SilverStone Shows off Tundra TD04 "Pump-less" Liquid CPU Cooler

Among the swarm of all-in-one liquid CPU cooling solutions SilverStone, the one that stood out is its Tundra TD04. It's what the company claims is a "pump-less" liquid CPU cooler. It features a high-performance CPU water block that looks more like the DIY blocks you'd find in expensive liquid cooling setups; plumbed directly to the 240 x 120 mm radiator+reservoir assembly. We're not quite sure how circulation happens, or whether it's convectional of some sort. SilverStone claims the cooler can handle thermal loads of up to 200W.

SilverStone Tundra TD03 Slim and TD02 Slim CPU Coolers Pictured

SilverStone unveiled its Tundra TD03 Slim and TD02 Slim, an all-in-one liquid CPU coolers. The cooler takes advantage of higher air-flow and air-flow to noise ratio of the included fans, to slim down the radiator. Both coolers are based on a common base-block design that's innovated by SilverStone; featuring a silvery tubing. The TD03 Slim features a 120 mm x 120 mm radiator; while the TD02 Slim features a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. We also spied an unnamed cooler with a super-slim 140 mm x 140 mm radiator.

SilverStone Temjin TJ12 Monstrosity Detailed

SilverStone Temjin TJ12 was the elephant in the room at its Computex booth. This jumbo cubical case is huge - perhaps bigger than Lian Li PC-D600. Unlike the PC-D600, and Corsair's smaller Carbide Air 540, the TJ12 isn't a vertically-partitioned two-compartment case. Its motherboard tray (supports ATX, E-ATX, XL-ATX, and HPTX) is oriented along the plane of its front panel, with rear-I/O facing upwards. Add-on cards can easily be as long and tall as they make them. At the bottom of the case, are four large fans, with a mesh, onto which you can latch on radiators of all shapes and sizes. The drive cage and PSU bay are suspended along a sloping panel, in a way that they don't obstruct anything near the motherboard tray. The actual "front-panel" is located at the top. So the TJ12 is essentially a case you put on your floor. and access its goods from the top.

SilverStone Unveils White Milo ML07 Chassis

SilverStone rolled out a sexy matte-white variant of its Milo ML07 compact chassis, pictured below, next to its standard sibling. The case features mostly matte-white surfaces, with a black highlight running along. Under its skin, the ML07 is essentially a Raven RVZ01, a mini-ITX chassis with room for an SFX power supply, a modern 33 cm long graphics card using PCIe risers (a GTX TITAN Black should fit just fine), leaving you still with room for a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator, a slot-in slimline optical drive, a 3.5-inch internal bay, and three 2.5-inch internal bays. Ventilation includes a 120 mm vent over the motherboard tray, and two 120 mm vents at the bottom.

SilverStone Unveils a 600W, Fully-modular SFX Power Supply

SilverStone may have solved the single biggest hiccup for compact gaming PC builders, that of quality, high-wattage PSUs in the SFX form-factor, to drive high-end graphics cards, with the SX600-G power supply. Built in the SFX form-factor, this unit can supply 600 Watts of power, letting you drive high-end graphics cards, 2-way multi-GPU configurations using performance-segment ones, and perhaps even gluttonous ones such as the GTX TITAN-Z (NVIDIA rates its typical power consumption at 375W). The unit features a single 50A +12V rail design, and boasts of 80 Plus Gold efficiency rating. Other features include active PFC, and most common protection mechanisms. The best part? It features 100% modular cabling, so you can keep out cables you don't need from your compact build.

SilverStone Milo ML07 Now Available

SilverStone launched the Milo ML07 slim mini-ITX chassis, with room for conventional (full-height, double-slot) graphics cards. Measuring 382 mm x 350 mm x 105 mm (WxDxH), it weighs about 3.71 kg. The ML07 chassis may look like something to build a media PC around, but it can actually hold gaming-grade hardware. The case features two add-on slots bays along the plane of the motherboard tray, featuring a PCI-Express x16 riser. There's enough room for full-height, double-slot graphics cards as long as 330 mm. That's enough to squeeze in a GeForce GTX TITAN Black (which is 266 mm long), all that's left would be finding a PSU in the SFX form-factor, which can safely power it. The motherboard tray seats conventional mini-ITX boards. Its storage area includes room for a slot-loading slimline optical drive, a 3.5-inch internal bay, and three 2.5-inch internal bays. Ventilation includes a 120 mm vent over the motherboard tray, and two 120 mm vents at the bottom, which should let you squeeze in a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. Front connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports (standard header), and HDA front-panel jacks.

SilverStone Unveils NightJar 520W Power Supply
