Silverstone Announces the RL06 ATX Case

In yet another addition to their already populated line of computer cases, Silverstone has announced the release of the budget-oriented (by Silverstone's standards) RL06 ATX case. It is built primarily from steel and plastic, and sheds the more premium tempered glass alternative for a more cost-effective transparent plastic side window.

The RL06 will be available in two different color schemes: the usual, gamer-style black with red trim or a more subdued white with silver trim. The base model ships with a single 120mm fan on the rear of the case, but Silverstone also announced a Pro version which comes with three additional 120mm LED fans mounted on the front of the case.
The RL06 case carries dimensions of 455 x 200 x 477 mm, with clearance for cards up to 13.7 inches (348 mm) long and has sufficient headroom for CPU coolers up to 158 mm tall. Radiator support stands at 120/140/240 mm for the front, 120 mm for the rear of the case, and 120/240 mm for the top of the case, while the PSU department is served by an "up to" 200 mm specification.

There are three 3.5-inch drive bays and two 2.5-inch bays. There aren't any external drive bays, either, which means you can't add an optical drive (if you feel like going back to the 2000's), a hot-swap drive, a card reader or additional USB ports to the front I/O panel, though Silverstone included two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a 3.5 mm Mic-in jack, and an audio-jack.

The case comes in at 6 Kg, and will be released sometime this month, with the standard version carrying an MSRP of $80. There isn't any word on the price of the Pro model, though.

Agreed. Silverstone's product releases have been slowing to almost nothing recently, and lagging behind the rest of the market. Reminds me of Lian Li actually.
