I would like to thank SilentiumPC for supplying the review sample.
We have the pleasure of reviewing the SilentiumPC Gladius Q50, a tiny aluminum chassis. Here is what the company has to say about their own unit before we dive into it:
The Gladius Q50 is an exceptionally classy looking mini-ITX chassis with black-anodized, brushed aluminum panels. This elegant cubicle will fit seamlessly into your environment, whether it's a desk or a living room. Designed with maximum flexibility in mind, the chassis allows you to choose from a wide range of components and applications, from office or multimedia use to powerful PC gaming stations.
Despite puny outer dimensions, the smart interior layout supports fully sized components, including a standard ATX power supply, up to 200 mm long VGA cards and 160mm high CPU coolers. There is also space for installing up to three internal drives.
