I would like to thank SilverStone
for supplying the review sample.
SilverStone has been making cases with 90° rotated interiors for quite some time, and while the Alta F1 up for review shares the name of the family with other such cases, it looks and feels vastly different. Meant for ATX motherboards, the Alta F1 design goes beyond the core body of the chassis by utilizing thick aluminium panels to achieve its look and provide a layout that goes beyond the 90° rotation. The chassis ships with your choice of silver or black panels, and we have the latter variant in for review.

The SilverStone Alta F1 ships in a full-color cardboard box with images of both color variants on the larger sides. The box lists the enclosure's major unique selling points on one side and a table of specifications on the other. There are carrying holes for easier transportation, which is useful since the Alta F1 is rather heavy.
Thick, cardboard-reinforced spacers hold the chassis in place, while a plastic bag keeps fingerprints and light scratches away.
