SilverStone today rolled out the FARA B1, an ATX mid-tower chassis that covers the essentials for a contemporary gaming PC build. Its design involves a mostly matte-black front facade, with large front intakes through a "star-crossed" grille, and a tinted tempered glass side panel. The SilverStone logo along the front panel illuminates. Inside, you get a horizontally partitioned layout. The upper compartment has room for ATX (or smaller) motherboard form-factors; graphics cards up to 32.5 cm in length, and CPU coolers up to 16.5 cm in height.

The bottom compartment of the SilverStone FARA B1 has the PSU bay, and a single 3.5-inch drive tray, which can also hold 2.5-inch drives. On top of this tiny drive cage is a 2.5-inch mount. There are two additional 2.5-inch mounts behind the motherboard tray. Ventilation includes 3x 120 mm or 2x 140 mm front intakes; 2x 140 mm or 2x 120 mm top exhausts with a detachable dust filter, and a 120 mm rear exhaust. You can mount a radiator as big as 280 mm x 140 mm along the front panel, and one as big as 240 mm x 120 mm along the top exhaust. Front panel connectivity includes two USB 3.x type-A ports, a USB 2.0/1.1 type-A port, and a 3.5 mm combo headset jack. The case measures 207 mm (W) x 446 mm (H) x 401 mm (D). The company didn't reveal pricing.

They're all the same :laugh:
Yes and no IMO. This is like a re-fresh from their RL06, which is actually a very good performer for its money. So, what you have here is a case, that actually is doing its job properly.
