SilverStone Unveils CS381 Chassis for DIY NAS + Creation Rigs

Today's NAS servers are getting increasingly powerful, and rising beyond their mandate of providing storage over the network, with media and production/creation capabilities being added to them via fast x86 processors and GPUs. SilverStone is targeting this market with its new CS381 pedestal chassis. Measuring 400mm (W) x 225mm (H) x 232mm (D), with a volume of 30 liters, the case offers eight 3.5-inch hot-swap caddies behind a lockable front bezel. These 8 caddies are split into two columns of 4 caddies, each, which have SATA 6 Gbps and miniSAS 12G HD backplanes. There are also two concealed 2.5-inch mounts for your SSDs.

The CS381 has room for a micro-ATX motherboard with room for a full-height graphics card, but a CPU cooler only as tall as 6 cm, which is plenty of room for the pump-block of an AIO CLC. You can use a CLC with a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator thanks to the two 120 mm rear exhausts. An SFX/SFX-L power-supply bay allows you to deploy a reasonably powerful PSU. Two additional 120 mm fans can be mounted along the sides. Front-panel connectivity includes two USB 3.0 ports, and HDA jacks. The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilverStone Teases OLED Display Equipped Case at Computex 2019

While by no means a draw dropper at this point it seems SilverStone is looking to try something a bit different, teasing a prototype OLED equipped chassis at Computex 2019. Utilizing the ASUS SDK, it connects to an ASUS motherboard and displays pertinent system information such as CPU temperatures on the display. For now, it is only a prototype with no design set in stone with the company still looking into the best way to implement the feature going so far as to consider going with a 5.25" device as well. However, there is one sticking point, and that is the SDK while open in nature currently only works with ASUS motherboards. While the feature is a bit basic for now, the concept itself is still quite impressive and could prove to be an appealing feature if appropriately implemented. For now, all we know is that SilverStone is looking into it.

SilverStone Rolls Out the Krypton KR02 CPU Cooler

SilverStone today rolled out the Krypton KR02, a compact tower-type CPU cooler. This cooler is designed to handle thermal loads of up to 130 Watts, and supports LGA2066 and LGA115x sockets. AM4 support is added by separately purchasing a bracket, which ensures the cooler points in the right direction (towards the rear of your case) when installed. Its base is made of copper and aluminium with some finnage; from which three 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes pass, conveying heat through the aluminium fin-stack, which is ventilated by a 92 mm fan.

Taking in 4-pin PWM connection, this 92 mm fan spins between 800 to 2,800 RPM, pushing 15.12 to 56.1 CFM of air, with a noise output ranging between 13.6 to 34.8 dBA. Its hydraulic bearing offers a rated lifespan of 40,000 hours. Measuring 92 mm x 125 mm x 51 mm with the fan installed, the cooler weighs 380 g. The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilverStone Rolls Out Strider Plus Bronze Series Mid-range Modular PSUs

SilverStone today rolled out the Strider Plus Bronze line of mid-range power supplies with full modular cabling.

You also get active PFC, the latest C-states support, and most common electrical protections, against over/under-voltage, overload, overheat, and short-circuit. The 550W model provides one 4+4-pin EPS and two 6+2-pin PCIe connectors; the 650W model offers one 4+4-pin EPS and four 6+2-pin PCIe, while the 750W model tops the range with two 4+4-pin EPS and four 6+2-pin PCIe connectors. All three models offer eight SATA power and at least three 4-pin Molex connectors. The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilverStone Introduces the 550 W and 650 W Strider Gold S PSUs

Silverstone today announced two new introductions to their Strider PSU lineup, in the form of the 50 W and 650 W Strider Gold S PSUs. Both of these feature a (you guessed it) 80 Plus Gold certification for power efficiency, whilst being extremely small (140 mm in depth) - and fully modular, as most users would like them to be.

Both power supplies are of the single +12V rail type, with SilverStone quoting a strict ±3% voltage regulation with low ripple/noise. A 120 mm fan takes care of cooling requirements, and the PSUs carry Over-power, Over-current, Over-voltage, Over-temperature, Under-voltage and Short-circuit protection. Reatail pricing stands at 77.60 EUR (excluding VAT) for the the 550W ST55F-GS (which packs in three 80 x 15mm PWM fans) and 91.00 EUR (excluding VAT) for the 650W ST55F-GS.

Silverstone Cases on Display at CES 2019 Including an All New Raven Prototype

During our visit with Silverstone, we had the opportunity to check out their new case lineup which consists of numerous new designs including an all-new Raven prototype. Keeping the unique internal layout established by the previous generations alive, the new Raven has the motherboard I/O pointed towards the top with two 180 mm air penetrator fans located at the bottom operating as intakes with a single 120 mm fan at the top as an exhaust. The design makes use of the simple concept that heat rises to great effect. Drive space is limited to a single 3.5" or 2x 2.5" drives, meaning as of now builders eyeing this new design will want to stock up on M.2 drives. While we don't have official specifications in regards to radiator support, we can say there is plenty of room to set up a water cooling loop multiple mounting points provided near the back and sides of the chassis.

Moving on the side panels are both tempered glass which gives the case a uniform look, however, thanks to that, you can forget about hiding your wire mess behind a solid back panel. Instead, the Raven Prototype will be better suited for those who meticulously route their cables keeping things exceptionally neat and tidy. As for the front panel I/O, it is located on the top left above the side panel and consists of 2x USB 3.0 ports and the usual microphone and headphone jacks. In general, the angular design of the previous Raven cases remains but has been toned down just a bit, giving this latest iteration a sleeker, stealthier appearance.

Silverstone Unveils 1550W Strider Titanium and 2000W Strider Platinum PSUs

At CES 2019, Silverstone updated its portfolio of unique short-length high-Wattage PSUs with the new Strider Titanium 1550W (ST1550-Ti) and Strider Platinum 2000W (ST2000-Pt). Their biggest USP is their high power density and short lengths, in the 18-19 cm range. The ST1550-Ti, as its name suggests, boasts of 80 Plus Titanium efficiency. It's a minor update to the ST1500-Ti the company launched in 2017. The ST2000-Pt, on the other hand, puts out 2000 Watts of power using a single 166A +12V rail. Owing to its short length, it ends up with a stellar 861 Watts/liter power density. Both models feature a large number of PCIe and EPS connectors to power heavily overclocked HEDT builds with multiple graphics cards.

Silverstone Argon AR12-RGB Cooler Smiles for the Camera

Silverstone shows us the Argon AR12-RGB, a modernization of its Argon 12-series tower-type cooler to keep up with the times. Its fan carries with it most of the design chops with a translucent white making up the impeller, the inner bore of the frame, and cushioned fan-mounts. The fan features a refreshed fan-blade design that increases air-flow which you can trade in for lower noise. A standardized addressable-RGB header lets you control its RGB LED lighting. Another nice touch is the white top-plate for the fin-stack. The 154 mm-tall tower-type cooler features heatpipe direct touch base, and can handle thermal loads of up to 125 W (TDP), with support for most modern mainstream desktop CPU socket types, including AM4 and LGA115x.

SilverStone Intros FW124-ARGB Slimline 120mm Fan

Continuing on its streak of releasing slimline 120 mm fans, SilverStone rolled out the FW124-ARGB. This 120 mm spinner is 15 mm thick instead of the usual 25 mm, leaving you with more room in SFF cases. The fan features the same 9-blade impeller design with blade-integrated guide-vanes as the FN124 from last week; but backs it with a more premium fluid-dynamic bearing instead of sleeved. The impeller is made of frosted, translucent polycarbonate instead of opaque black, because it has to diffuse the six addressable RGB LEDs studded in the impeller hub. These LEDs take in standardized 3-pin addressable RGB input. The motor is more advanced, and takes in 4-pin PWM input instead of 3-pin DC. The fan spins between 800 to 2,000 RPM, while pushing 13.1 to 32.6 CFM of air-flow, with a proportionate noise output ranging between 14.7 to 24.6 dBA. The fan is rated for 50,000 hours of life.

Under the hood, you get single +12V rail design, active PFC, and most common electrical protections, against over/under-voltage, overload, overheat, and short-circuit. The company didn't specify pricing.

SilverStone Intros Tundra RGB Series Liquid CPU Coolers

SilverStone today introduced the Tundra RGB series all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, with the TD-02 RGB and the TD-03 RGB. These aren't mere RGB refits of the TD-02 and TD-03, but complete redesigns to the Asetek platform. You now get the swivel fittings that Asetek holds patents on, along with completely redesigned pump-blocks and radiators. The TD-03 RGB features a 120 mm x 120 mm radiator, while the TD-02 RGB comes with 240 mm x 120 mm; both with 32 mm thickness, and a ridged aluminium radiator-fin design that improves heat dissipation. RGB LED lighting extends to not just a company logo on top of the pump-block, but also the included radiator fans.

Among the current-generation CPU sockets supported are LGA115x, LGA2066, and AM4.

SilverStone ECM23 is an M.2 Riser+Heatsink Letting You Slot-in Your Drives Like Cartridges

The ECM23 from SilverStone is one of the more interesting M.2-PCIe SSD risers to come out in recent times. It looks like a game cartridge from 1980s, and slots into one of your PCI-Express x16 slots, which it then uses to wire out an M.2-2280 M-key slot with PCIe x4 wiring. The riser itself has x16 interface, but beyond x4, all the other lanes are blank, and only serve to add retention, since the riser doesn't feature an add-on card bracket to hold it in place. The main PCB has no logic of its own, other than link/activity LEDs for the four PCIe lanes.

It's more optimal to use drives with all their hot components on one side, since that side has access to the chunky ~40 g main heatsink. Heat from the other side is drawn from a copper mesh printed on the PCB, which supposedly conveys it to the back side, which has an aluminium back-plate, which bolts onto the main heatsink, sandwiching the PCB and drive in the middle. Measuring 105 mm (W) x 11 mm (H) x 44 mm (D), the ECM23 weighs 52 g (excluding the weight of your drive). The company didn't reveal pricing.

SilverStone Intros LSB02 Addressable RGB + Fan Controller with Remote

SilverStone introduced the LSB02, a box that you tuck away behind your motherboard tray to control not just your addressable-RGB lighting, but also fans, using an RF remote control. The controller puts out six 3-pin ARGB ports, which can each address up to 72 LEDs; and four 4-pin (PWM) fan control channels. Power is drawn from a 4-pin Molex connector. There's also an included thermal probe that can be tucked into your CPU cooler. For those apprehensive about using magnetic mounts behind the motherboard, SilverStone has included adhesive Velcro pads. Measuring 65mm (W) x 23mm (H) x 109mm (D), the box weighs about 72 g.

SilverStone Intros Fans and Fan-Frames with Addressable RGB Illumination

SilverStone this Computex released a trio of fans, in addition to fan accessories, which feature addressable RGB LED illumination. The lineup begins with the FW124-ARGB, which is a 15 mm-thick 120 mm fan with a 9-blade impeller that's frosted white, diffusing light from LEDs located in the fan's hub (rather than the frame). Next up, are the AP142-ARGB and the AP124-ARGB (Air Penetrator series). Both these are are 25 mm-thick fans, with clear fan blades, addressable RGB LEDs located in the frame, and an air-guide that's characteristic of certain SilverStone fans. Lastly, there are the FG121 and FG141, and FG142 and FG122 fan grilles, which you strap onto your non illuminated fans for added bling. These now come with addressable RGB LEDs.

SilverStone Intros New Precision and Sugoi Series Cases

At Computex 2018, SilverStone showed off additions to its premier case lines - Precision and Sugoi. The Precision series is expanded by the new PS07-E (working title) and PS15 micro-ATX cases. The PS15 features a refreshingly simple layout - the motherboard and PSU bays are accessible from the left side, while the drive cage from the right. This way your drive cable clutter, and unused PSU cables are tucked away on the left side, taking advantage of the crawlspace behind the motherboard tray. You get familiar design elements from SilverStone, including a meshed front panel, a large top vent with removable filters, and a tempered glass right side panel. There are five fan bays in all, of which three are 140 mm capable, all 120 mm capable. The case measures 190 mm x 365 mm x 351 mm (WxHxD).

Next up, is the PS07-E micro-ATX tower. This case features a solid brushed metal front unlike the PS15, and a characteristic "hump" up top, which slides down along rails to reveal a 5.25-inch drive bay, three USB 3.0 ports, and HDA jacks. The Sugoi TJ08-Pro is practically identical to this case, but has a meshed front fascia. Inside, both cases feature an upside-down (BTX-style) micro-ATX motherboard tray, bottom-mounted PSU bay, three 3.5-inch drive bays, and two additional 2.5-inch mounts; and a staggering four 140 mm fan mounts, in addition to the 120 mm rear exhaust.

SilverStone New Lucid - Clear View Series Cases Spied

SilverStone this Computex unveiled its new Lucid Clear View series vertical cases. Available in micro-ATX (LD01 and LD02), and mini-ITX (LD03) sizes; the cases are characterized by gobs and gobs of tempered glass, with internal layouts optimized to let you show off most of your RGB LED-illuminated hardware. The LD01 and LD02 have a tower-like appearance, while the LD03 has a more cubical appearance. The LD01 is more glassy, and has glass panels on all but the rear and bottom sides. A chrome accent runs the top. This case measures 215 mm x 405 mm x 410 mm (WxHxD), and features three 3.5/2.5-inch drive-bays, in addition to two 2.5-inch mounts. Besides a 120 mm rear exhaust, you get four 140 mm mounts (two on the front, two along the top).

The LD02 is the slightly cheaper micro-ATX option, characterized by an aluminium bar running along its height, and tempered glass panels only along its front and right-side. It has the same number and configurations of fan-mounts and drive bays as the LD01, but is slightly bigger - 217 mm x 405 mm x 433 mm. Both the LD01 and LD02 orient the micro-ATX motherboards "upside-down," BTX-style. Lastly, there's the LD03. This case is more metal, less glass, and only has it along its side panels, in polygonal shapes. You get one each 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch drive bays; two 120 mm and one 80 mm fan-mounts; and the ability to mount a 240 mm x 120 mm radiator. The motherboard is oriented such that its rear I/O alights with the top of the case, and the graphics card stands tall through a riser. The case measures 277 mm x 415 mm x 230 mm.

SilverStone Intros Nightjar NJ450-SXL Fanless Power Supply

SilverStone introduced its Nightjar NJ450-SXL, a fan-less (silent) power-supply in the SFX-L form-factor.

SilverStone Intros Argon AR 11 Low-profile CPU Cooler

SilverStone released the latest entry to its Argon line of low-profile CPU coolers, with the Argon AR 11. Designed for LGA115x socket, with an installed height of just 47 mm, the cooler is ideal for SFF builds on mini-ITX motherboards, as its 97 mm x 94 mm x 47 mm aren't much larger than the CPU socket area of LGA115x motherboards itself. Like most Argon series coolers, its heatsink design involves a dense aluminium fin stack that propagates along the plane of the motherboard. Four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes, which make direct contact with the CPU, pass through two ends of the fin-stack in an "S" shape. The fin-stack is ventilated by a 15 mm-thick 92 mm fan, which takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 1,200 to 3,000 RPM, pushing up to 55.76 CFM of air, with a noise output of 44.5 dBA at max speed. The cooler supports CPU TDP of up to 95W, which means you should be able to install even 6-core "Coffee Lake-D" Processors. The company didn't reveal pricing.
