Silverstone at CES 2020 took the opportunity to showcase selections of their portfolio for the media, ranging from PC cases in major form-factors, PSUs, and a range of "ease-of-life" and aesthetic-driven accessories. Accessory-wise, there's a range of SSD-related products, such as the MS09 stick, which allows conversion of an M.2 SSD to what basically amounts to a USB 3.1 pen drive; other products in this category include the MS09-Mini and the MS11, which improves support for the NVMe protocol. The ECM26 is a PCIe adapter for M.2 sticks, while the Silverstone TP02-M2 presents itself as a heatsink for installation on non-passive-cooled M.2 SSDs.

Continuing the SSD accessories galore, there are a number of other solutions, including a tool-less NMVe to PCIe adapter (ECM21-E), an ARGB powered one (ECM24-ARGB, which includes a heatsink), a simpler, non-ARGB one with a heatsink (ECM23), and my personal favorite, a docking station for a barebones M.2 drive you may have around, in the form of the TS16 station. The presence of a Power button very surely means this can't be hot-swapped - the risk of data-loss is real.







Moving on to cases, the ML10 is a Mini-ITX affair with a very small footprint (specs list it at sporting only 2.7 to 3.6 liters depending on your model choice, which increases height of the front-panel, and consequently the case), and it only supports up to 2x 50 mm fans as cooling. The SG14 - or Sugo - is an SFF case with a mesh front panel and steel body, with support for up to three more conventional 120 mm fans. It has a 20 liter capacity, which means more freedom for higher-component specs, but also a larger footprint wherever you want to install it. It will be available for $70, sans-PSU.



Moving on to desktop cases the ATX-compliant SETA A1 steals the show with a modern yet slightly old-school look, with its curved aluminium front panel (which hides 2x 200 mm fan support). Silverstone is talking about offering the SETA A1 in up to five different color configurations. There's a transparent side panel, support for vertical GPUs, and ARGB lighting, which wasn't active in the showfloor. The SETA A1 should be available starting January 15th for $120.



Next up, the FARA B1 & R1 Chassis, which will be available at a very entry-level $59, showcase two different design philosophies at the same price point. The FARA B1 features a more subdued front-panel design with a frontal slab of material, whilst the FARA R1 should provide increased airflow due to the honeycombed cutouts in the front panel. Both feature triple 120 mm fan support on the front of the chassis, but of course the R1 offers higher airflow (and dustflow, but that's another matter entirely).



Next up is Silverstone's premium offering, which will be embodied by the Alta F1 ($169 when available). The Alta F1 doesn't have many finalized specs yet, as Silverstone says development is still ongoing. However, the presented version at CES 2020, which should serve as a major guideline for the final product, includes an aluminium-clad steel frame, a 90º rotated motherboard layout, a vertical GPU mounting system for you proud GPU owners out there, as well as ARGB lighting.



Moving on to power supplies, SilverStone showcasedtheir very relevant product family, with varying degrees of watt output per liter according to the use case and the PSU design philosophy. This is best showcased by their densest power supply design in the form of the SFX-L 1000 W - which outputs an amazing 969 W per liter (and increases final output over the previous top PSU in the series by 200 W). In other scenarios where size-energy output ratio isn't so demanding, such as in more traditional power supply units, power density can go as far down as just 277 W per liter, such as is the case for Silverstone's more basic Essential Bronze models (lesser component density means easier assembly, less stringent considerations and needs for cooling, and all the other little bits and pieces that allow for a lower final product cost).



All in all, Silverstone showcased numerous designs, including their Decathlon Gold Modular models - which will offer up to 1650 W output; their Nightjar fanless PSUs which be offered in a new, increased 700 W output (over the previously available 600 W); a new TFX PSU with a 700 W output (double that of their top current offering); and their Essential Gold modular series, which offers efficiency without considerations for the best performance.

The Alta F1 looks promising, especially if it uses Aluminium panels.

That M.2 docking station for NVMe drives should come in handy once people start upgrading their NVMe based systems, especially for notebooks.

What happened to the Raven series they presented a prototype last year at CES 2019 but they do not show final product during the whole year !

C mon Silverstone you are the pioneer of the chimney design extremely effective in cooling case design and you stop to bring it ?? Bahh !

Maybe they are busy with Microsoft and the new box? :)
